Noahdeer suggested this weeks Shared Topic: World of Warcraft has added many different items for players to collect, whether it be collecting pets, mounts, transmog gear or knickknacks about the lore. This week’s topic asks what you do collect in the game and what is your prized item from that collection?
Luckily for me RL keeps my hoarding tendencies in check and nothing I have or may want to collect takes over my house in anyway; books, movies, music, unicorns, bells, nutcrackers, ornaments, ect… If only that we’re true in WoW where my vault, bank(s), bags, and even void storage(s) are bursting at the seems.
Recently I had two b.net accounts combined and this beloved dragonkin disappeared. After several tickets & phone calls Blizz did finally return it but only after making a point that this was an exception on their part. They claim the pet was earned by a specific b.net account which was the one I moved away from. My standing was and still is that the pet was earned by a specific registered game account and it shouldn’t matter which b.net account it resides on. Regardless, they hold the power and I’m grateful for the exception to the rule which resulted in both my in-game accounts now sharing the pet.
According to the official armory I have 170 mounts but in-game, I have 142 [A] and even less on the other side. My most favorite mount would be the Raven Lord because it’s beautiful and it joined my collection on all days; my Birthday for realz. My most prized mount would be the Swift Zhevra.
I’m not really wearing tabards much these days but my favorite when I was would have been the TCG Tabard of Flame. My most prized would have to be the Spirit of Competition tabard. At one time I was really into collecting tabards so I’ve ended up with quite a few including several from the TCG. Blizz really should give us a trophy case for these much like the old keyring.
I love collecting tier sets, it doesn’t matter what class I am I find myself hunting down my favorite tier sets weekly. Thunderheart Set [T6] is most favorite and most complete set my druid owns closely followed by the almost full (cries) Wildheart Set [T1]. Sadly I’ve lost my full Defias Set and the pre Wrath Event sets.
Misc items I treasure the Little Wickerman an item influenced by pagan tradition and/or events. Transformation items have always been a favorite of mine like Orb of Deception, Orb of the Sin’dorei, Dartol’s Rod of Transformation, and Time-Lost Figurine. Random items with no real value: Spectral Essence, Argent Dawn Commission, Carrot on a Stick, and Chainlink Towel all items may be useless now but they we’re fun to have collected and used once upon a time.
