You know it's been awhile since you've updated your collection when you go from #12 on your realm to #5 afterwards.

About NathKnave:

I started playing WoW in Vanilla, but not at launch (my account recently hit the 10 year mark in February 2016). I hit 60 only 8 days before Burning Crusade, so I have no experience with Vanilla raiding. During BC I raided 10 mans (Kara, ZA), but Wrath of the Lich King was my primary rading expansion (10 and 25 man - killed the Lich King on 10 man while it was current - nerfed, but current). In Cataclysm most of my friends quit WoW, but I've stuck with it. Collecting is what I do now, and still having things to work towards in a game I love keeps me constantly logging in.


Pets first became a thing for me during the first Children's Week in BC. I'd obviously seen them before, but Willy's ability to zap critters really did it for me. I also have fond memories of raiding Karazhan when my friend would hit my Mechanical Yeti with a pet biscuit and I would use my World Enlarger. For a little while I would run around as the yeti's pet.


Mounts were a thing for me even back then as well. I had a friend that had a Spectral Tiger (he only bought six packs; who does that?), so I had to get at least one mount he didn't. I got two. I swapped to engineering for the 'copter and did the grind for the Winterspring Frostsaber. You might trip over those mounts now (even the Spectral Tiger), but at the time they were accomplishments.


Once they added in the system for collections in the Wrath pre-patch, it was on. No more just having two mounts (one ground, one flying), or only a pet or two for down time during raids. No, I had to have them all.
