<back while I was originally writing this post>
Actually, I don’t have a picture of “this man”, but I do have a picture of the turtle.
It must be a hangover from my huntering days, but I like pets. I have a couple of non-combat pets that appear when I mount. However they are the pets that excite me.
I like farm animals!
No! Not in that way… take your mind out of the gutter!
I like my short lived, 50 second, I am going to turn that BIG (They are all big to a Gnome) nasty monster into a farm animal type of pet.
… at my disposal, and random mobs, critters (I like my pets, and they need some body to polymorph from) and of course the ever loved Horde can often be by my side looking ready for the cooking pot.
I have recently come to the conclusion that I want a 3rd pet – a turtle. it has come to my attention that Tome of Polymorph: Turtle is BoE – yes Bind of Pickup! Which means there are 2 avenues for collecting this pet.
- Grind ZG – apparently you can get away with 2 players – a tank and a healer.
- Grind the AH – yep, these suckers are available for sale on the AH.
How much you ask?…. 4,000 gold.
OK, dragging my jaw off the desk… 4,000 is a little too much for me. Yes I know WoW has more money in circulation that Zimbabwe right now, but 4,000 gold?
<flash forward to present time>
So I had a good WoW weekend, especially considering I wasn’t going to play at all.
- Completed the fishing quest, so I am now at 226 fishing skill… now just have to find a reason to continue.
- My bank all did a bit of fishing on the AH too… and for the 1st time I had 10,000 gold on hand (I tend to spend it as fast as I get it) after pulling in over 2,500 gold.
Mmmm what to do with the 2,500 gold…
Write a quick ingame mail to those people selling turtles on the AH… explain how everyone wants 4,000 for their turtles, and have done for a week now, so the 1st person to send me the tome COD at 2,500 gets the cash in return mail.
So I would like to introduce you to my new pet…
