So, today is Talk Like a Pirate Day. I flew down to Booty Bay, and after getting the toybox item, I was screwing around, doing a few quests in hopes of getting transmogs, and, completely without me even thinking it might happen, a HYACINTH MACAW dropped for me.
How cool is that ? I could barely press the screenshot button, I was so shocked.
So, happy Pirate Day to me.

This takes me back to 1998, when everyone I knew swore they'd never upgrade to DVDs after having so many VHS tapes already.
What did you *DO*, Ray ?
i'm pretty sure it used to ride a little broom when you flew around. As of yesterday, though, it just kind of floats awkwardly behind you at a weird angle. Still one of my favorite pets, but, of course, it's been replaced on my hotbar by whichever one of the two new cats I already unlocked on my main. I forget which one I have. I'll have them both by the end of the event, but I'm not farming 3 of each in an attempt to sell them. Too much other stuff to do right now.
I've been stalking these, have seen about 40 of them by doing the "create a level 1 gnome on many servers" trick, and every single one of them has been grey quality.
This is the leader of my battle pet team. As others have stated, he has a heal, a terrific dot (the turret cannon) and he's got moves that work on beasts or other mechanicals, and a really great move against dragonkin. I can't reccomend him enough.
