|A Bonus Day|
I will freely admit that this weekend has not been one in which I have focussed my efforts on collecting. In fact, it has been anything but a mount chase, as these things are not necessarily time dependant. Focus naturally shifted to more pressing matters, and I haven't seen the inside of Mandokir's Arena since Friday. However, last night I was given a chance at a Meta Mount, and that doesn't happen around these parts very often.
I'd pretty much written off doing Dragon Soul with the Guild last night because of my RL commitments, but an Officer kindly asked if I'd like to step in and do Deck Defender as he knew it was the only achievement I was missing for the Meta. Fortunately I was able to duck in, achieve and duck out too for kids bedtime, but was able to return in order to help the team finish the Instance, so I didn't feel that bad about cutting and running after I collected the mount.
|First of this style mount.|
This is pretty much a First for me: I'm pretty certain this is the fastest its ever taken for me to pick up a Meta from raid content. I also really like this style of Dragon, and I am tempted to run this Instance solo once the pre-Patch hits to see if I can get a hit at the other mounts that drop. Needless to say, I'd not expected an update this week, so having #219 here is most definitely a bonus.
I will say however, having not made the effort to do my normal Circuit of Disappointment, I did make two swings at the World Bosses this weekend (clearly to no avail but you do need to be killing them for a chance) and this reminds me that I should organise tokens for more alts this week so I can keep stacking up the chances at a drop. I'm also very glad I don't have to run Brewfest for a mount, as I hear drop rates continue to be the random bane of various people's existence. Such it is when you do this thing for a hobby.
Needless to say, am very happy that the next time we talk in this feature, I'll be wheeling in Mount #220 :D
