Cold Weather Flying - Here we come!

Finally!!! I get to fly again. No more do I have to sneak over to the Outlands to mount up and fly about. I got my cold weather training last night and I can start breaking out my epic flying mounts. Now I need to farm like crazy to help get Kydra her epic flying training. I care a lot more than she does. But she hasn't yet experienced the epicness of epic flying (maybe should have used a different adjective, getting a little redundant).

So, I'm up to 54 mounts right now, I just found out from twitter friends that I could buy all the nether drakes. I thought I only got my free one. So, I'm going to do that once I get my money up. Why would I want to do that seeing how I already have my 50 mount achievement (Leading the Cavalry). Well, I don't have a good answer for that. It is really fun to use a random mount add on (I use Mountiful) and you never know what mount you'll use. Many people in the guild (including my brother) think I'm a little silly with my obsession with mounts. They're probably (most likely) right. I got him convinced that its what I like to do when I'm not leveling with my wife, but truthfully, I would do it anyway.

I just like to collect things I suppose. When I was in high school I was really into collectible Star Wars cards. I spent hundreds of dollars on those stupid things, and now they are just collecting dust. When I was even younger I collected pennies. I have several Indian head ones and one that goes all the way back to the 1880's. Wow, information you probably don't care about. But what do you collect?

I really like getting vanity pets as well, but I've been lazy about doing that lately. I'm still at 39 vanity pets. Need 11 more to get my skunk. Wouldn't want that for a mount, that's for sure.

Grats on your cold weather flying!

I guess you could say I collect pets. I'm sitting at 43 now, I believe. I would really like to have the skunk - I've always maintained that I would like one. But I'm not really crazy about it.

Maybe Anea just doesn't collect anything. Hm.

She collected different fruits to eat as she was leveling up. That's what she collected.

I collect a couple of things, but I'm really just trying to finish my Phoenix Wright collection right now.

My main, Delgada, collects the pets, and useless garbage left behind from old quests (lieutenant's insignia, anyone?).

As for me, in real life my husband has been supporting my WoW habit by buying me WoW trading cards. I have 3 folders full of them and a box full that I haven't filed yet. Think it's time to E-bay some :P
