Finding myself with some free time yesterday afternoon, and knowing the Mrs. was also in Azeroth, I decided to try to put in some more time on my Warrior. Unfortunately, like many other folk I found myself on the receiving end of Error #113. The login server was busy and to try again later. No problem, I’ll just do the daily quest for Hearthstone instead. Oh, hey! Hearthstone is now live! Awesome. Wait, no. Can’t play that either because the Battle.net client won’t connect and thus I’m out of luck.
Almost three hours later, I managed to login to said Gnome Warrior and there was some mail from Mel Francis.
Now, I don’t know if it’s a current glitch or not but when I went Horde side the mount was still blue. Previews had suggested red and blue and I certainly figured that meant depending on faction. I hope it isn’t based on the toon that opened the mail because I would have most assuredly jumped Horde first in order to get the red one (only slightly more sexy than blue).
If you’re wondering where and how you get said mount, I should point out that about an hour before I got into Warcraft I was finally able to sign in to Hearthstone. With it now being live, they have implemented the mount achievement, which requires you to win three games against other players.
