I’ve had a healthy helping of real life that’s been eating my brainpower (and both my time and desire to log in). Things should be back to normal soon!
So Yesterday’s Big Thing was the new Sparkly Pony mount, available for purchase from the Blizzard store. Regardless of the out of character implications of this (if there are any, beyond “People really like Sparkly Ponies” and “People will pay lots of money for vanity items in game”), I think there’s an interesting In Character question to go along with them.
What kind of mounts (and pets!) do your characters choose for themselves? Why?
Are there any mounts or pets that your characters would NEVER seek out, keep, or use?
If there was a particularly relevant Blizzard store pet or mount, would you pay for it for your character?
And, for those of you who got the Celestial Steed, do you have an in character story to go with it?
For Aely, she’ll never have a ground mount that isn’t her charger. She’s just not that interested in having lots of pets or mounts around. She does rather like her Rusted Proto Drake (which I like OOCly because its all ZOOOM!), because he’s kind of a doofus, but she’d be happy with a plain armored gryphon if she didn’t have him around. Angoleth, on the other hand, enjoys having a whole stable of pets and mounts, and pays a good bit of her gold towards making sure they’re all cared for properly.
