A couple of months ago, I mentioned that I was saving my gold to buy Orbs of Mystery to build myself a Geosynchronous World Spinner. I wanted to get my gold total up to about 75K, so that I wouldn’t be left totally broke after spending 54K on the Orbs of Mystery. I was at around 52K at the time, and I do not make gold actively or even “accidentally”; this week, I was up to about 62K.
When Kregga visited the Black Market Auction House yesterday, there was a Blue Drake up. I’ve seen Blue Drakes on the BMAH before, but either I haven’t had the 20K to spare for a starting bid, or I bid and then quickly got overbid, or the bid was already up higher than I was willing to spend. This time, no-one had bid on it yet, and I did have 20k on-hand… All evening, I kept quickly switching over to Kregga to see if I’d been outbid yet. By the time I went to bed, no-one had outbid me yet. I hoped that no-one would come along and scoop me while I was asleep…
Fortunately, no-one did.
Oh frabjous day, I finally have a Blue Drake!
Now, Blizz, you’ve done all the other Dragonflights, so when are you going to give us a Green Drake Mount?
And the rocket will have to wait until I’ve gathered some spare change by leveling a bunch of alts through the Warlords content. But that’s okay. I didn’t get around to grinding the rep to be able to build the Mechano-Hog until about a year ago, in part because I couldn’t afford the really expensive components until then — and this is kind of the same thing.
