What is in game that you want, but you can’t have? Is there an animal you want to tame, a critter you want to collect, a tabard that has the perfect design for a transmog set etc etc.
What is it you want, but know you can’t get your hands on and have to stare at longingly whenever you log in?
I want a Black Wedding Dress to mope around in during Love is in the Air and Hallow’s End.
Erinys’ post about wanting to look like the humans in Old Southshore reminded me of something that I want out of Old Hillsbrad:
I would love to have this fellow’s gorgeous robe, a combination of the Black Velvet Robes and the Aurora Robe.
I want Top Hats for everyone! Yes, I know the High Society Top Hat tailoring pattern apparently does exist in the game — but it’s a low percentage drop from some creatures that are rare even for silver dragons.
More than that, I want the appearance of the Top Hat on female characters to look like the cute little hat-with-veil worn by Gilnean NPCs such as Gwen Armstead and by the Dwarf Cannary Caskshot.
When I rolled Kymberlea and first met Gwen, I hoped that Lord Walden’s Top Hat would look like HER hat on my female character, and I was sadly disappointed when it didn’t.
I wanted the Swift Zhevra mount, but I couldn’t quite justify the expense of a third account (because BTH and I already made two accounts in our household) just to get it. I tried RAFing BTH’s sister and one of his co-workers, but neither of them got interested enough in the game to pay for even two months of subscription :( Then after the news came that the Swift Zhevra would be going away, by the time I finally convinced myself that I could RAF myself and then just let the third account lapse after a three-month subscription, I’d waited too long and it was already gone.
So now I want to tame a Zhevra with my hunter, and I can’t do that, either!
And if that Goblin Mini Hotrod is the reward for the next iteration of RAF, as I suspect it might be, then this time around I will RAF myself to get it!
