I'd have to say I was most excited to acquire the Grand Black War Mammoth in Vault of Archavon 25 back in Wrath. One day it dropped after we killed Koralon the Flame Watcher, and I rolled a 98 (the second-highest) but lost it to a 99. When we killed Archavon, a second one dropped; the raid leader demanded we do fresh rolls (even though I would have won had he not), so with my hopes at an all-time low, I rolled a perfect 100. You can imagine how many laps I did around my house upon winning a rare multi-passenger mount. Was giving out free mammoth rides for a good month, which is how I met a great many of my in-game friends. :3
I think I liked tbc or wotlk raids the most, can't decide between those 2 :/
I was so proud of levelling every class and race to 85 through Cataclysm. Nice to see a long line of 85s... now the only problem is dragging all of them up to 90! =) Thanks for doing contests, Wowhead, and for being the first place I go to for information on anything. Keep up the good work!
When I was in my noob-days, I had no idea what I was doing at all, but one thing was certain; I wanted the Merciless Gladiator set for my warlock. I slaughtered countless of alliance peeps to get the full set, only to switch it out with some quest gear when WOTLK came out 2 weeks after... :P But I was proud of myself, because when I look at the set, I think back with good memories and the fact that it was my very first set I ever farmed to get. :)
Drop Invincible! :)
My green proto drake is my favorite :)
After playing for seven years, It's hard to choose just one thing that I was most excited to acquire/achieve...So rather than choose between the vanity items and pets, I'll settle for an achievement.The moment I saw the "Professor" title as an acquirable title, I knew I had to get it on my Gnome Warlock.I farmed Archaeology for days until I got that title. I was so proud when I finally got that 20th artifact.
Running the old ZG and in two separate occasions both the Raptor and the Tiger dropping in the same run. <3
The "Battlemaster" title. In 5.2, I guess it will be trumped by the "Khan" title so that will be my next goal. :)
Winning my Mimiron's head mount
when i got my icc 25 mount.
Well number one moment for me would have to be..Getting a Spectral Tiger this year! But I would really like a sweet tcg flying mount loot card to kick off a new awesome year!
Ashkandi, Blade of the Brotherhood was one of the biggest wants since transmog came out and I got it the same day every other 2h weapon dropped in BWL.
It took forever as I started in the middle of the year, but once done with 'What a Strange Long Trip it's Been' I was happy to get the drake and the fastest speed.
Probably when I got Baron's Charger after farming it for weeks. Felt good to have it and finally be done with the grinding.
Having Insane title and warglaives to my rogue.So proud back then.
I would say finally getting my Twilight Drake. I took me years of farming to finally be the person to win it and I spent an hour just flying around Stormwind when I finally got it. I want the Fel-Drake to make my warlock look like a badass with his trans gear O_O
The Ashes of Al'ar back in the days. It was epic :D
