I have the same problem, I had a goal of 600kg before the drop of WoD, I was at about 360kg, and now I am at 88kg.
I would have to say I am an addict to pets.

I don't think the collecting EVER stops! I'm always constantly broke from buying pets. Never even made it over 100k gold because of my obsessive pet collecting! :lol:

There are some awesome guides for doing the celestials here: http://www.warcraftpets.com/community/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6459

That should give you an idea of what pets you'll need the most. :)

Sadly you never truly get to stop, because there's always new pets on the horizon! (though I would prioritize something like paying for flying first, because it makes it easier to hunt for pets :) )

I'd be gold capped a few times over if I stopped buying pets and mounts and other shiny things, sigh.

Fairly sure there is only one expensive flying skill to buy, and that's the 4k-ish one that gives you 280% speed. You may be thinking of the faction you need exalted rep with to ride cloud serpents?

This is the reason I try to farm and trade as much as I can for pets, albeit a bit late in the expansion for most of the pets to be worth a 'decent' amount of money there are always people looking for pets and those that have just gotten unlucky...

I always found it a lot more rewarding grinding a pet and finally seeing it drop :)

One thing that helps with your pet obession is to actually become a pet trader. At 90 you can do all of the classic/BC/WotLK raids. Farm your pets! Sell the rest on the AH. Make an Engineer, JC, or Tailor...make some pets. I made a Hunter who is a JC/miner. I farmed the Ancient Guo-Lai Cache keys in Valley of Eternal Blossoms for about 4 hours...got several keys...got the two JC pet recipes (Jade Owl and Sapphire Cub). There a lot of ways to self-fund your efforts.

It's worse!! I haven't had a smoke for 9 years but after a 3 month break from WoW I was back pet leveling within minutes of logging in again, and within a week I'd spent £300 on Vanilla pet codes. :oops: :lol:
