Thank you for the kind give-away contest. I have some but not all of the pets offered in the collection and if I win will gift duplicates. It is taking me forever to explore Azeroth and collect all the beasties! Alternate characters always distract me from my plans...
I began my adventures as a Night Elf Druid and the Sprite Darter Hatchling was available as a quest reward for Alliance characters. I was tickled with this little fairy dragonkin and it initiated my intrigue with companion animals.
The time I had available to play WoW significantly decreased as my teenage sons interest in WoW was growing, so he took over my account. Years later, I found Cataclysm under the Christmas tree from my son. I started a new account but missed my lil fairy beastie. When Mists of Panderia came out I fell in love with battlepets; "gotta catch them all". Sadly, the Sprite Darter Hatchling was no longer available via quest so I began a mission to capture one in the wild.
Over the years, every character created, Alliance and Horde conducted a mandated battle stint through Feralas. I left a swathe of shredded Noxious Whelp wings in my path. The Sprite Darter Hatchling seemed forever unattainable to me ~ until I stationed my mage, Squeaklet, in New Thalanar and finally one day, a Grimtotem Marauder released one for me! I named this one "Addiction" as it was this pet that drove my fascination with pet collecting.
Squeaklet is an alchemist who enjoys gardening, she will retire to her garrison flower patch. By then, she will have completed Draenor Pathfinding and can hop on her Enchanted Fey Dragon mount to go anywhere.
Besides, she is a mage, she can leave the heavy lifting in the capable hands of her Human manservant and summon portal where ever her heart desires!
Like picnicing with old mates at the resort in Feralas Mountains, just south of Camp Mochaje and New Thalanaar where she captured her Addiction.
Or flying over rolling hills and through the majestic purple skys of Nagrand searching for new pets.
Retirement is the beginning of new adventures...
