I had never really thought about it but it appears I have some weird ideas about luck … or maybe it’s Cat … yeah, probably Cat. All my characters who can, have been helping Cat on her quest to get Mountacular. Yesterday we had three mounts to go. I could buy them but that didn’t seem right. Let’s keep trying.

Cat wanted to do Firelands as there’s also a Druid toy, Fandral’s Seed Pouch in there. She doesn’t really need it but she’s a toy fanatic. So we do Alysrazor and darn, we get the mount. Crap. We had that one.

Well Cat, we might as well leave, we’ve used up our luck.

No, I want to smack down Fandral for his pouch. Besides, it’s fun.

Fandral didn’t give up his pouch but we’re almost done, might as well finish it. Even though … you know … we’ve used up our luck.

Yeah, how weird is that. Cat couldn’t believe it, I couldn’t believe it. The Smoldering Egg of Millagazor dropped … even though we’d used up our luck. Damn. Who knew.

Well then, why stop now.

We headed to Zul’Gurub and yep, Armored Razzashi Raptor. What is going on? This is crazy! At this point we got ridiculous. We did the Voidtalon portal route, we did the Warbringer route. We even thought about going to Stratholme and we gave up on that place back when it was still hard to do solo.

We thought about it and decided that since three mounts had dropped, even though we already had one, buying the last wouldn’t be cheating. Cim bought that overpriced Riverwallow from those highway robbers in Stormshield. There. Done. Yay … sorta.

I did learn a valuable lesson about luck. I should have figured it out from the 160 plus times I ran Sethekk Halls for big bird. Sometimes you have none and sometimes it can strike three times in a row. Don’t try to second guess luck.

Anyway, now what do I do. That was supposed to last until Legion came out. Maybe I’ll check in with Ironsally … see if she’s feeling feisty.

My, What a Big Sword you have Mr. VanCleef and Other Ridiculousness

Yeah, you’re right. You got me. I’m busted. It seems I only write when the servers are down anymore. So lazy. But this was interesting, apparently my characters get bored waiting for the servers to come up too. There’s my ever so serious, no nonsense bank alt. She’s parading around in her 11th WoW Anniversary Edwin VanCleef costume to while away the time.

That’s all well and good but she’s gouging great hunks out of the AH floor with that over-sized sword. I’m going to get a bill for that. Darnassian officials don’t take kindly to that kind of vandalism and I can’t even get in there to make her stop. Crap, the AH will be nothing but twigs if she keeps this up.

ridic

Here’s some Cat ridiculousness. If we go by the Warlock’s count they only need seven more mounts to get to 250. Let’s see, there are two Cat could purchase.

Champion’s Treadblade

Mosshide Riverwallow

Here are two the Shaman Jeweler could make:

Jade Panther

Sunstone Panther

There are FIVE that she could get from the Argent Tournament, more than enough sure things to get to 250 but you see what she’s doing? She’s wasting her time hovering there hoping the Voidtalon portal is going to decide to appear just because she’s there.

She insists on flying around Pandaria looking for Warbringers. Since Pandaria became CRZ they are as scare as the Voidtalon portals. I think I’ve seen three in a year.

Then this. My Hunter tried to be nice and help out and went to the Throne of Four Winds and got this for Cat. Cat was grudgingly grateful but mumbled how she liked going there. Couldn’t the Hunter have gone and got Ashes of Al’ar from that guy that just won’t shut up instead?

So anyway, I hope Cat’s using this time to indulge in her crazy camping for portals and Warbringers because when I get back there we are GOING to the Argent Tournament no matter WHAT she says.

Yeah, I’m putting my foot down … probably … maybe.

Well there is that 20% buff to acquiring Felblight with the patch … yeah, maybe we’ll fish and do the Tournament tomorrow.
