And there was much rejoicing!

August 11, 2009

Sometimes I stare at the screen thinking, “I should really try to post about something…there’s gotta be something going on in Azeroth that I want to capture for posterity’s sake.” In this case, I completely forgot that I hadn’t posted to show off my new flapper!

I’ve been buying Oracle eggs since about a week after I hit 80 on my first character. I’ve never been lucky enough to get a random drop like this – especially not a mount – and was uber excited when I him. I think I actually “Squee’d” in real life, lol.

I’m probably alone here, but I feel like the new patch is just too overwhelming. There was SO much to read through in the patch notes and I still feel totally lost. People in my guild are running chain heroics for badges (I think I might have 15 total on all my 80s – see how excited I am about it all?) and grabbing the free gear that is basically just falling out of a hole in the WoW loot pinata. For very little effort, you too can have ilevel 226 gear! Act now! I really don’t understand why Blizzard is giving out so much 200 level gear…it’s coming out of everywhere! Naxx10, Crafted Epics, Rep Gear, ToC loot, Badge loot, etc. Crazy.

Why are they giving it away?  And when are we going to be fighting Arthas?



  1. I know the feeling of getting that pretty green mount. Just like you I have been getting eggs since a week after I dinged 80. Not only that, but I never even got a PET. I always got a the eggo yolk.

    So I defintelty squeed like a pig when I found my mount lol. Big gratz.

    In regards to why blizzard is giving away epics…your guess is as good as mine, but I like it!

    kinda hehe

  2. I have less of the new badges than you!! I’ll get there when I get there, I still have 4 68+ characters to join the other 3 at 80. There’s plenty to do!

  3. Grats!

    I have been trying to get mine since late Dec 08/ Early Jan 09 when I got the rep needed. Still no love 😦

    A guildee of mine has 2, lol! Good to see proof they do exist 😉

    Skarlarth and Co.

  4. I was so glad to finally get mine. Getting all those aged yokes was more than disappointing. I should go back and visit my Oracle buddies though. Haven’t seen them since I got my mount. 😦

  5. I’m glad you got yours…now I officially hate you.
