MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR SEPTEMBER 4th !!

Postby Guest » August 22nd, 2015, 4:58 pm

I've decided to sell off all my cage-able pets and I want to give everyone who may need a rare (most level 25) plenty of time to get an Alt and gold on Drak'Thul U.S. server. These Pets will be sold through straight 12 hour in game auctions with no buy-outs starting at 3:00 PM Realm time Friday September the 4th.
Why; you may be asking; am I doing this? Well, The reality has set in that a goal of having all pets someday is just not going to happen.
Before Draenor I wanted to be in the top 10 on server, and I made it to 5th. I am now at 3rd-ish but each time I turn around there is another pet to get with another hoop to jump through to get said pet. YAY I"M LOOKING AT YOU GRAVE GOLEM COMPANION :(
This has made me sad. So, it's time to pass 'em all down to a good home and release the rest in the wild. Please peruse my list and I hope you find some worthy of your hard earned gold. There will be NO pre-sale so please don't ask. This is to be the last fun pet thing I'll be doing and I want it to be fair for everyone.

It's really sad that you aren't enjoying the pet collecting anymore. :( I actually like the challenge of constant new pet, it keeps me addicted, if there wasn't new pets I think I'd get bored a lot quicker. :lol:

It's very much an on-going hobby, are you really really sure you wan't to go the extreme route of getting rid of all your pets? :shock:

Ya, I've given this much thought - weighing what to do, and of course discussing it with my Hubby (who had been gratuitous enough to give me 250K gold to buy pets on my last birthday!!), and have decided this is the way to go. I just get too aggravated. I haven't even stepped foot in Tanaan yet due to having alts parked at pet bosses to level. Just so much time in the day, ya know? So, I'm hoping to return some of his gold and maybe buy some game time with the rest. I'm sad they are going but glad I'll be helping the community.

The next xpac might not be out for a year and to get all of the pets would give you something to do.
It would be sad to give up on everything you worked so hard for.

I think this is really sad too. :cry: I understand if it is causing you rl stress & isn't fun any more maybe it is the right thing for you. I hope you won't regret it but I guess you could always work to get new ones if you did....... :?

I am glad I have always been ok with knowing I am not going to be #1, there is only 1 of those naturally :lol: & I am just happy being in the middle doing what I am in the mood for.

Good luck with your auction though, since you have decided this is best for you I hope you have lots of fierce bidding. I hope you keep a few of the one that don't sell though, no pets at all would be sad I think...... :(

With all due respect I think you're kind of a weirdo. You just used "gratuitous" instead of gracious. They're not even close in their spelling or meaning. Have you been drinking your dinner?

I'm just kidding around. Sort of. :o :mrgreen:

Painbow:

wordreference.com(partial) definitions of these 2 words in question-

Gratuitous : given freely without reason or cause
Gracious: pleasantly kind, courteous

Sure, an adverb would be a better choice than the adjective...but is the word use so 'off' that it deserves the slam?
----
Another word meaning for you to consider....
Forum: a(n) (open) meeting place for discussion of matters of public interest...
-----
I submit that people are more interested in the intent of the OP than your personal attack

Let's keep the discussion on topic and friendly, everyone.

@Tikicarol - It's a shame to hear that you've decided to part with your pets. Still, I hope that your sale goes well and your next adventure is just as grand. :)

Now I'm really REALLY bummed.

I feel I need to clarify my feelings/actions:
We all have different reasons for playing WOW and collecting pets. For me I feel it's one step forward - two steps back. I start to see the proverbial finish line and all of a sudden 2 more miles are tacked on to the marathon.
For instance; what has currently frustrated me:
To get the "Grave Golem" I'd have to play "Heroes of the Storm" to level 20 (assuming this pet is not tradeable).
(If I am wrong in this example please set me right). And that's just the latest "Carrot on the Stick" Blizzard holds.

For now I am still battling the pets that need leveled and going through the motions.
A lot of food for thought in everyone's post ...ooooh ....carrots ....yummmm.....
Oh,
And for the record,
I AM a "weirdo" and proud of it !
Conforming to the expected norm is boring.

Edit:
Just came back from the Blizzard boards where I had posted the original notice.
I really thought I was doing something to help out the community as a whole by giving everyone some notice of the "when and where", but I guess that ol' adage - "No good deed...." really fits.
Apparently I should have just quietly auctioned the pets off.
Mods, please feel free to lock this thread. Nothing more to see here.

*hugs* Tiki!

I adore weirdos! I understand where you are coming from in the carrots.. I agree completely. (I am just too stubbourn to get rid of any of my collections) Incidentally, Heroes SUCKS, I just hit level 13, I abhor the game, but damnit, I want that pet!

Good luck with the auctions!
