Win a Limited Edition Figurepets Set!

Monday, July 13th, 2009

Here’s another prize you could win if you donate for the “Need More Stable Slots!” SPCA Charity Drive!

Shawn from wtfcraft has a limited edition set of the first series of FigurePets that he’s offered as a prize for the draw!

If you’re like me, you don’t just collect the in-game non-combat pets for the achievements… but also because they are so darn cute to look at!  Well, with FigurePrintsFigurePets, you can have them with you when you’re out of game too!  These are being produced with the same high-quality process as the FigurePrints.

If you win this prize, youll get all 3 pets!

If you win this prize, you'll get all 3 figures!

So please head over to the “Need More Stable Slots!” SPCA Campaign page to find out how you can donate to a great cause and enter to win this and other prizes!


I remember…

Friday, July 10th, 2009

Dueg wrote up a list of things he remembers from “back in the day”.  It filled me with nostalgia, so I decided to add a few memories of my own!

I remember…

… when you had to grind up to Exalted with Frostwolf clan to get the Howler.

… when Mend Pet was channelled.

… when only the most doughty players had epics and tier sets.

… when Broken Tooth was the best pet, not because he looked cool, but because he had a super fast attack speed.

… when there were no Summoning Stones.

… when Summoning Stones were Meeting Stones and they were (not) used as a poor auto-LFG tool.

…when mages had to conjure stacks of food/water and hand them out individually (Healthstones as well.

… farming gold.  Not farming mats to sell and make gold, but killing Humanoids to get gold.

… when mailing items to your other characters wasn’t instant.

… when you needed a specific rank to get into the PVP Hall in Org/Stormwind.

… Feign Death + drinking during boss fights to regain mana.

It will be interesting after another year or two of the game, and we look back on what we’ve got now that’ll be different then.
