A Prize from the Heavens

Pets.  There are some pets in WoW that you just can’t get enough of.  Like the Imperial Silkworm for example.  We have a guild tab that’s almost half full of them from people doing their Imperial Silk cooldowns daily.  We would have more, but I think we’ve started to vendor them because we can’t get rid of them and they don’t sell at all on the auction house.

Then there are the rare pets, ones locked behind crazy achievements, like the Stunted Direhorn, or those that require lots of RNG luck, like the Darkmoon Eye ( I hate you, Jeremy Feasel).

And then there are the ultra-rare pets, ones that now fetch a pretty price on eBay, like the Vanilla Collector Edition pets, the Mini Diablo, Panda Cub and the Zergling.

Well, leave it to a certain Druid to come up with a crazy game for a chance at another one of those ultra-rare pets, a Mini Tyrael!

"Who you calling 'Mini'?"

“Who you calling ‘Mini’?”

Last weekend, as part of her “Moving House Giveaway” post, Navi created a scavenger hunt where you had to search for clues found in 16 links from various blog posts in a cleaver poem she wrote and put them together.  The clues combined to form more questions to answer and once you answered those, you got your name entered into a drawing for awesome prizes.  In addition to the Mini Tyrael pet, there was a Riding Turtle mount and Gusting Grimoire to be won.

This contest was not easy at all.  I clicked on ALL the posts and ALL the links.  It took me a long time to find all the clues (I was even one of them, lol) and even longer to find out who Navi’s favorite NPC was, which took me a couple tries to get that right.

With that hard part over, it was just a matter of waiting, along with the two others that got the questions right, Cymre and Luxy, to see which prizes we would be drawn for.

And I couldn’t believe it, I got picked for Tyrael’s Hilt!  Take that, Feasel! =P

To claim my prize, I had to go and visit Edward Cairn in Undercity.  I guess they didn’t trust Landro Longshot enough to hold onto a special pet like this, haha.

With my own mini Archangel of Justice in hand, it was off to take some pics!

And after our most recent Throne of Thunder kill of Ji-Kun, I decided to do a little flying myself with Mini Tyrael.

So congrats to Cym and Luxy on their prizes and thanks to Navi for an awesome, albeit crazy and difficult, contest and prize!  Now it’s time to go level this bad boy to 25!

    • I know, I’ve been slacking on the pet leveling department lately. I haven’t even leveled up any of the 5.3 pets yet, been having too much fun leveling alts, lol.
