Nice moments in PC gaming: Lastly getting that uncommon mount you've got been after in World of Warcraft

Developer: Blizzard
Yr: 2004 – current

You understand the drill. You’ve got noticed one other participant driving a flashy mount in Orgrimmar or Stormwind and also you simply have to have it. Perhaps it is not a brand new mount you are after however one which’s been round for some time and it simply hasn’t dropped but. And perhaps you’ve got been farming the identical content material, week after week, hoping you may get fortunate. 

In my case, it was the Lich King’s mount, Invincible—with someplace round a 1% drop charge. It wasn’t simply how he appeared, although that was what drew me to the mount within the first place. His lore fascinated me too. The truth that he was at Arthas’s aspect in life, and later in dying, exhibits an excellent bond, and I would at all times beloved the truth that you possibly can go to Invincible’s grave in Tirisfal Glades. I simply wasn’t ready for what number of instances I would have to run the raid to get him.

Now, as nice as Icecrown Citadel is, it turns into much less nice while you’ve cleared all the factor 400+ instances. There are not any skips like there are in more moderen raids so you must work your means via each boss to get to the Lich King and be in with an opportunity of him dropping Invincible’s Reins. Granted, the bosses themselves aren’t troublesome, it is the operating from place to position that made clearing it such a chore—particularly while you knew you have been more likely to stroll away empty-handed.

So when Invincible’s Reins lastly did drop, I actually wasn’t ready. I imply, I knew I used to be there for the mount, however I would accomplished it so many instances I wasn’t excited about it when it got here time to loot the ultimate boss. I need to’ve stared on the merchandise in my baggage for minute in absolute disbelief earlier than it sank in. After all, as soon as I obtained over the shock, I instantly linked it in guild chat earlier than placing it firmly on my mount keybind. 

Naturally I headed straight to Orgrimmar, which is where I would first noticed Invincible a number of years earlier than, and loitered across the Valley of Power displaying off my new acquisition. Perhaps I hoped to encourage another new WoW participant into taking over a number of years of largely fruitless farming. 

Was it price it? Completely. Invincible continues to be my mount as we speak, though his major process of late has been doing countless laps round Oribos as I sit on Discord chatting to guildies. I can not wait to indicate him the Dragon Isles and though he might must take a little bit of a again seat for a time due to dragonriding, Invincible will at all times be my favorite.
