Another 3.2 surprise for me was just how adorable the new Obsidian Hatchling is. I guess I really have been out of the loop. This little guy is easy to come by, sold by Breanni in Dalaran for 50G minus the rep discount. But despite the fact that everyone is running around with him, he may be my new favorite companion. He’s a classic “Mom, can I keep him?” pet, sure to grow into a dangerously hungry raptor.
I guess I didn’t read all the patch notes after all. After taking the flight path to Wintergrasp to do the fishing daily yesterday, John told me I can just fly there now on my own mount. YES!!! This change makes traveling so much easier.
Anyone else have any pleasant 3.2 surprises?
I finally had a chance to play 3.2 today before getting back to work on comics, and I went straight for the orphan quest line to get the pet. After brief inward reflection, I decided to go with the Wolvar pet. I figure I’ve done enough for the oracles, seeing as I got my rep up with them so I can buy the weekly egg. And I had to make up for all the times I bagged helpless wolvar pups for the Planning for the Future Tuskarr daily quest. Sure, the old walrus pretended to be saving them, but I know that as soon as I turned them over they slow roasted and ate the little tikes. Don’t tell my new orphan companion though please.
I couldn’t resist linking to Lisa Poisso’s 15 Minutes of Fame this week. A few of you may remember the comments for the comic “Critter Tease” in May. ‘Fert’ commented that Chloe and Bink play the way that he and his fiancee do – as one! Well of course we were all like “Wha?! Awesome!” And a kindly commenter or two submitted the couple’s story to Lisa on wow.com. Take a read, it’s pretty fascinating.
Oh, and what’s with the pink animal thing? Well that’s my attempt at drawing a cutesy ferret. FertZane love ferrets.
