I've Got 9999 Problems but a Bone-White Primal Raptor Ain't One

When Rav asked me what my WoW plans were for the weekend, I told him I wanted to finish farming for the Reins of the Bone-White Primal Raptor.

Rav: 'Well you love grinds, it should be fun for you.'
Luxy: 'Do I?!'
Rav: 'What else are you going to complain about?'
Luxy: 'Hmph!'

He is half right.

When 5.2 hit I farmed up the bones for my Spectral Porcupette then another 2 to give away as gifts. That wasn't so bad. I had no trouble making myself go out there every 3 days to farm up another Primal Egg but after the 7 eggs it took to get the Reins of the Black, Green and Red Primal Raptors, I couldn't bear going back to the Isle of Giants.

I would occasionally go back and farm a hundred or so at a time before getting distracted or bored. At some point last week I decided I should just get it done. The bones were taking up precious space in my inventory. I made a couple of serious trips out there to farm and my Mountain of Giant Dinosaur Bones was piling up. I put Arrested Development on the second screen since I wanted to re-watch it all before Season 4 starts (can't wait!!)

On Friday morning I had close to 7000 Giant Dinosaur Bones sitting in my bags. I told myself I could do it. I have farmed worse things. At least the bones are 100%. Skyshards were much, much worse.  

3000 didn't take long! Some awesome friends and guildies helped out at various times during the whole 9999 farm. The company and help was much appreciated.


Look at all this space I get back!

 Yay, a Feat of Strength! No points but any shiny is a good shiny these days!

That is kind of a lot of problems for one person to have.
The Bone-White Raptor mount takes my count to 210! Now my only trips to the Isle of Giants will be for that evil Oondasta (or to help others who are farming).

This is where I should say something positive about the way it looks, right? Umm, it has very pretty eyes.

What now?! Bring on 5.3!

    1. I should have kept track of how many times I died. It was a ridiculous amount. Any time I had to type more than 5 words I was gone! I couldn't just wait 20 seconds til I was done fighting to reply to people :P

  2. Haha, well done. I must say that I wasn't too impressed with how the raptor looks but that effort is amazing. Plus the three pets you farmed beforehand.

    It's not often that I have that much space to spare though...

    1. Inventory wise I could never have done it on my priest!

      It's not something I will often use but I am glad I did it. A Spectral Raptor would have been so much better though!

  3. Looking good on that raptor! I'm afraid Sasche got close to 3000 and then bought two spectrals. Not sure she has it in her to continue, maybe later.

  4. I don't think I'll ever get that thing. Man I could not stomach the grind! Grats though! Hmm, the albino look kinda goes well with... your draenei maybe? :)

    1. Thanks! I think I could work on a pink/purple/white xmog!

  5. Grats on the mount! I don't think I have the patience and definitely not the bag space to hold all those bones, lol. Crazy Luxy is crazy....see, crazy post!

    1. You have so many alts! Surely one of them has space!

  6. Grats on your mount! That was a crazy amount of grinding for bones to do. But just think, you only had to do it once instead of having to do it again and again to get that mount for all your alts!

    1. Thanks! I would never get it on an alt if it weren't for account wide mounts! My alts were pretty neglected before MoP!

  7. a big grats!! I'd love your patience, I'm almost tempted to go and grind for the FOS alone, but I think I'll just admire your mount instead :)

    1. Thanks! My patience comes in waves :P Often I am pretty grumpy and impatient while farming. I was reading Matty's post on happiness while I was finishing lol
