After seeing that the various toys from Winter Veils past had been added to the toy vendors, I’d been hoping that the Gaudy Winter Veil Sweater would show up on one vendor or another, too. Sure enough, the Smokywood Pastures folks sell it for the princely sum of ~20 copper. While I was cycling through my alts that had been created since last Winter Veil — most notably my Monk and my Pandaren — and taking them to get their Gaudy Winter Veil Sweaters, I got a whisper from Navimie telling me to check my blog email.
A code to redeem? Ooh, what could it be? Oh, my!
I’d been meaning to visit Navi on her home server sometime anyway, so after a bit of confusion about how to find her realm, I was able to give her my delighted thanks in person.
Isn’t he adorable? Not having gotten into pet battling, I haven’t bothered to name most of my pets, but this one definitely needed a special name. And so, thinking of Jackie Chan, I named him Naviechan.
Thank you so much, Navimie dear!

LBR this weekend being Horde-side Sunwell, I took Kaelinda. After burninating our way through Sunwell, we went and roflstomped Kael’thas in Tempest Keep, too. Kay was the only cloth-wearer in the group, so she collected a pile of sweet items that I now need to work on putting together into Transmogrification kits.
But clothes weren’t the only thing that dropped.
Kael’thas dropped the Ashes of A’lar.
Everyone needed… and Kaelinda won!
A comedy of errors then ensued.
Kaelinda couldn’t learn the mount because she hadn’t yet purchased Artisan Riding. She couldn’t immediately afford Artisan Riding, either, even if I’d pooled all the money from all my characters on her server, due to my not caring much about the gold-making sub-game. After some discussion, the lovely Repgrind suggested that her Alliance Paladin, Kerick, who is on the same home server as Kaelinda, could buy something from her via the Gadgetzan AH. So that was decided upon… but we’d forgotten that then we’d have to wait an hour for the transaction to go through.
While we were waiting, Vanicus and Kerisa went to Gruul’s Lair. There, goodies dropped for both of us — Kerisa got her T4 shoulders and Vanicus got the Hammer of the Naaru. Now, Kerisa just needs those pretty blue T11 shoulders… and then she’ll have to come up with Transmogrification kits to go with her collection of Favorite Druid Tier shoulders.
Finally, enough time had passed that Kaelinda could collect Kerick’s kind donation from the mailbox.
Thank you so very, very much, Repgrind! <3
