Well, another Pilgrim's Feast event has come and gone and I still don't have either pet.
I hate this event.
Yeah, I'm not too fond of it either. This is another holiday that needs a revamp. It's old and stale. I have all the achievements and the turkey already, so the only thing I had to do was cook and /pray. Of course, the /pray did no good. I got the toy, several hats, but no pet. I didn't keep count, but I must have done at least 50 turn-ins across seven characters. This took up quite a bit of time every day just because of the required travel between cities.
I'm a little irked at Blizz for this type of pet drop. I don't mind low drop rate. I don't mind grinding. But it's much less stressful when I can do it on my own time and not have the deadline of the holiday staring me in the face. I much prefer the holiday events where grinding tokens (or whatever) is the route taken. It's tedious, for sure. But, it's guaranteed as long as you put in the grinding. With the random bag drop like the chicken, you have no control over it at all and only have a limited number of chances. I feel sorry for someone that doesn't have an army of alts like I have..
Now, I'll probably break down and spend too much gold to get the damn chicken off the AH. Then, just wait...next year, Blizz will change the drop rate to something ridiculous like the Sinister Squashling and the chicken will become as annoying as the Squashling.
/thinks happy thoughts.
