Now I’ve been collecting the WoW TCG ever since it came out and the Spectral Tiger has always been the one mount I’ve wanted to get. A loot card so rare that it is one of the most wanted mounts in the game, maybe just as much as the Ashes of Al’ar. Very few people who I know have this mount, like Arioch and Navi, so I tried my luck to obtain one a couple of weeks ago. I knew that Cryptozoic released an Archive set a couple of years ago, which reprinted cards from some of the earlier sets with a foil front, and they even included a chance at some of the rare mounts too, like the Spectral Tiger, X-51 Nether Rocket, Saltwater Snapjaw, and Red Bearon. I bought some packs during the Thanksgiving week at Target and what did I finally pull out?
Spectral Tiger mount!
Surely this was a joke, I thought, but it was definitely real. Only a few minutes later, I was online racing towards Landro Longshot to redeem my long-awaited mount. And then I hearthed back to take some screenshots.
With the mount finally in my possession, I was able to reunite the two Spectral cats together, lol. Even though the Spectral Tiger shares the same body type as other tiger/panther mounts, I still think it’s the best-looking ground mount in the game. Some people have paid hundreds of dollars to obtain this mount. Others have dropped a nice chunk of change on their Auction Houses. My lucky mount cost me no more than a couple bucks and I’m glad I didn’t have to pay that much for it. Except now I want to go back and buy the rest of the packs to see if I can get me a rocket! ><
