Last week was a pretty exciting week for the Drak BMAH, as another X-51 Nether-Rocket X-TREME went up for sale. This is the third time that I’ve seen it up there; the first one Sorak bought and the second I misjudged the time on, forgot to rebid and lost it last minute. As the auction was nearing its close, the bids starting coming in quick, going from 60K to 90K in a matter of minutes. I was determined not to lose for a third time and dropped 120K on it, the most I’ve ever spent on any item on the BMAH. The bids pretty much stopped there, as people started to leave Madame Goya’s little hut. I even stayed up late to see the auction to its end just to make sure it was mine, lol.
The X-51 Nether-Rocket is the first flying mount ever offered by the WoW TCG. It comes from the rare loot card of the same name from the fifth set of the TCG, Servants of the Betrayer. It is one of three loot cards from the set, with the cosmetic items Papa Hummel’s Old-Fashioned Pet Biscuit (which is similar to the Pet Biscuits you can get from the various supply bags from winning pet trainer battles) and Goblin Weather Machine – Prototype 01-B being the other two.
Owning a rocket mount was something I’ve wanted to add to my collection for while now. I was a little too late on creating a second account to get the X-53 Touring Rocket and the Big Love Rocket is a myth, with its crazy drop rate during the Love is in the Air event. My Death Knight is still trying to farm motes of harmony to convert to spirits to create the Depleted-Kyparium Rocket and I might have to bribe Lyss to farm for mats on her Rogue so that she could make me the Geosynchronous World Spinner, lol.
I think I’ll stick with this for a while, my gold wallet needs a break. =)
