When Blizzard announced account wide mounts and pets I was stoked. I've always had to obtain mounts and pets on my Priest. I was gutted when I got Reins of the blue drake on my Druid from Occulus during Wrath of the Lich King. I hated doing raids or instances that had a chance to drop a mount on any character besides Korla just in case! However once the account wide announcement came it meant I could do those instances on any character and ultimately it wouldn't matter.
Here are some of the mount related lies I've often told myself;
I'll do Onyxia every week on at least three characters - Haven't done it once.
I'll do ZG HC on my Hunter every day for both mounts - Did it for three days then never went back despite loving that Panther!
I'll do Kara on at least five characters per week. (I have around 30 capable of Soloing Attune) - I did it for the first two weeks then stopped.
I'll do Stonecore normal five times until I get locked out every so often - Stone-what? Stone-where? Yeah I've never done that either.
On Monday night after tending to my crops I ventured over to the Black Market auction house as I often do if I'm in Valley of the four winds. To my surprise there was an Onyxian Drake. I've never seen one of these on the BMAH. As it was on a very long bidding and knowing it'd still be there in the morning I decided to go to bed and check on it when I woke up. By Tuesday morning the price hadn't moved much so I placed a bid and went offline, when I returned I'd been outbid but the auction was now on between thirty minutes and two hours I decided to bid again and spent the next two hours leveling six battle pets to twenty five around the BMAH area.
I won the mount in the end for ninety two thousand.
This gives me something I won't do to cross off of my "I might do" list and I've made the gold back since then. So my Warrior gets to enjoy a new mount!
