2 Mount Kind of Day

So I got two mounts today… And these days getting one mount is a big deal.

 

Well, I was up very late grinding out the last few coins for the fishing mount from Nat Pagle.  I finally got it.  But I was mumbling how evil the water was when it took nearly 15 minutes to get the very last coin I needed.  You can read my insanity on twitter covering it lol.

I started 23 coins short so that’s not too bad.  I know it’s a recolor but it gets me one closer to my goal of 300…  Hubby said it looks like an evil version of the water strider and I suppose it does…

After I woke up, I decided to do a few Vortex Pinnacle runs since it’s one of the mounts I’m still missing.  I read a little bit on Wowhead and they advised using a hunter/rogue/feral druid just for ease of stealthing through mobs/speed.  Monk probably would have worked too as you can just run by most of the mobs, but I went with the hunter and camo’d to the first boss, killed it and just ran to the second.  Four or five attempts later, the boss had a purple on it.

Yes, it says 11 attempts there [that’s the Rarity addon – it shows attempts/faux achievements.  But that’s a toon I don’t really play much and they had 6-7 attempts when I started.  Askevar’s been through that place quite a bit more.  So while it seems lucky, I probably have well over 100 attempts on that boss accountwide… and the Rarity addon is a relatively new thing… no idea if it’s counting runs from before either.

But that leaves me 3 mounts shy of the 300 goal.  I still need the 5k saberstalker mount… which is a grind I don’t look forward to, the Champion’s Treadblade, and the Mystic Runesaber among others.  And there’s my weekly Elegon/Horridon runs that haven’t yielded anything yet.

  1. I got sick of farming for that mount in VP on my rogue. (287 run). So when it comes up on BMAH, I bought it for 201k.
