No sooner, it seemed, did I make a post saying that I probably wouldn’t ever make one of the jewelled panther mounts because I wasn’t really all that interested in them than I began to think that perhaps I should make one of them, after all. I’ve made all the Tailoring mounts and some of the Engineering mounts, so why not make at least one of the Jewelcrafting mounts, too? And I knew exactly which one I wanted to make — the blue one, to match the Sapphire Cub companion pet that is also created by Jewelcrafting. After spending a third of my gold at the BMAH to acquire a Blue Drake, spending half of my remaining gold an Orb of Mystery for a panther, instead of for the rocket, was just another setback. What really sealed the deal, though, was that my Paladin, who is also my Jewelcrafter, had the most mounts of all my characters — 149, just one short of the 150 needed to qualify for the Jade Pandaren Kite.
