This post is part of my 10 Days of Pet Battles series.
I have a lot of pets already, so there aren't that many pets I still need (though of course, that's changing now that 5.2 is here).
But the pets that I coveted the most, would have to be those that come with the WoW Vanilla Collector's Edition. That baby comes with 3 pets.
There are 2 people I know who have it. Slice has it, and he has taken his pets out to show me and make me all ooh-ahh, and the other person is Davidian.
The Zergling is cool. He interacts with Grunty the murloc marine in a cute little fight animation. Mini Diablo, though cool, doesn't interact with Mini Tyrael at all, which is a damn shame! And the Panda cub is just adorable.
What would I do to get it? Well, you may or may not know that an unopened, intact code Vanilla Collector's edition fetches premium prices on Ebay. The standard going price is about AU$3000. That is just...crazy. But, that's not to say I haven't been tempted, but I know if I bought one I would get a lot of flack from everyone...
"You idiot, you spent WHAT on a computer game?"
"It's just a bunch of pixels!"
"I've got better things you could spend your money on, give your money to me!"
Every now and then one pops up on Ebay, and I set myself a limit on what I would pay for it. But so far I have been outbid everytime. But, perhaps one day I'll get lucky. Or maybe I'll just have a really bad day at work and go crazy and go pay the big $$ and get my Vanilla CE. But it would have to be a REALLY BAD DAY to upset me that much that I need that much cheering up.
