Shared Topic: Three Items

At Blog Azeroth this week, Cymre asked the question of what three items, for whatever reason fancies you, you would hate to lose on your main.  Now, as I don’t collect everything on one toon I’m going to cheat a little bit.  I’m simply going to share my top three items, period.

Is there a place where this mount doesn’t look majestic?

1. Liouxpold’s Frostsaber
I started doing the quests for this back when the rep was still absurd for the quests. Also before it was a daily. However, I will openly admit that once I found out the daily was coming I just waited and then did it that way. Recently, I paused to consider faction/realm transferring him until I realized I would lose the Frostsaber. As that immediately put an end to that idea, it made me realize how important the mount is to me.

2. Siori’s Quel’Dalar
I maintain to this day everyone should try to snag a Battered Hilt and do the quest chain to obtain the weapon. It’s a great piece of Lore for certain.  From start to finish it is just an incredible chain of quests that sends you around Dalaran and Icecrown, as well as a phased version of the Sunwell Plateau ( which is one of the most beautiful raids in the game). I still have all of my screenshots from doing the chain and love to go back and look at them.  Not all of the “end-result” weapons look as nice as Cunning of the Shadows (made more badass by the Berseking Enchant), but as I say it’s worth having just to experience it all.  I would be incredibly disappointed to have that “undone” on me.

3. Horrux’s Skulflame Shield
My only epic world drop in over six years. Back when Liouxpold was grinding Frostsaber rep this dropped off either a bear or Chimera. I was in awe, and as Cataclysm had been announced I had planned on making a Worgen Warrior. So I hung on to it until I had created Horrux and the rest is history.

I would be incredibly disappointed to lose any of these items and I’m sure I could think of one or two more. What brought up the question, was Cymre was recently hacked and so it had spurred the thought process while waiting for the items to return. I wrote a post earlier this year about not having been hacked myself and I would be frustrated if I was…to say nothing about how I’d feel if these three were gone.

    I still feel sentimental about my hunter Tallys and some of the things she’s collected, simply because she was my first main, like the original chain for the bow / staff.

      I wish I could’ve gotten in on that bow knowing what I know now. 😦

    Getting the hilt is on my list of things I’d like. Just have to decide what character and get farming for one I suppose. The odd one pops up on the AH but I don’t feel I can spend my “yak” gold on it 😀

    I wanted Winterspring saber from the moment I set eyes on it but grinding for one as a Holy Priest in vanilla was rather painful. Have one now though and my Resto Druid rides hers everywhere.

      Let’s be honest, grinding ANYTHING as a Holy Priest is rather painful.

      Indeed, I had a hilt drop once and sold it. Then as my gold wealth went up, and I came across two for 8k, I bought one for myself and another for our guild tank at the time. She used to run people through all kinds of stuff and do just about anything for the guild. She was also an achievement junkie, so it was our way of saying “thanks.”

    I should go get a Wintersaber with Kaprikka so that the rest of my Alliance characters can enjoy it in Mists, too. It’s such a gorgeous kitty! Ketura had a little transporter accident a year and a half ago, or so, and got stuck as a Dwarf for a few weeks. She’d already obtained the Venomhide Ravasaur, so of course it got transformed into the Wintersaber. I made sure to take some good screenshots of it, and then after she got transformed back into a Tauren, she went out and tamed the purple tiger as a memory of that event.

    I would love to find a Battered Hilt and do the Quel’delar quest chain. I look for it on the AH occasionally, but haven’t seen one since late Wrath (when I couldn’t afford it). When my Paladin gets to max level and has obtained some decent gear, I might just have to go farm the Pit of Saron trash for it.

      Or, you know, perhaps one night we’ll pause from Laid Back Raids and make it a night of Shoryl’s laid back dungeons. Break off into groups and go Hilt, pet, mount, achievement hunting!

    I haven’t got the hilt but I’d love to get one. NIce sentimental list there 🙂

    • JD Kenada June 10, 2012 / 9:11 am

      Instance farming. 😉

    U got the shield from a Chimera… I remember the “giddy-ness” lol

    • JD Kenada June 11, 2012 / 8:15 am

      Thanks bud! Little bit surprised you remembered, but still awesome.

      …can’t believe you used the word giddy, let alone to describe me. lol
