Blogging Challenge Day 5: Fav Items

Okay, so I'm going to try to get back to a regular schedule for this 20 Days of WoW Blogging Challenge. But we'll have to see how that goes. With the impending arrival of 4.3 and the new content, focus may be directed on more updates about the new content and any changes to the Fangs of the Father questline.

This daily challenge is an interesting one, its all about my favorite items from the game. Having a difficult time narrowing it down, I decided to do a top 5 list. You may notice, most of the items are, in essence, worthless, save for the nostalgia factor. Call me a sentimental Troll, but I just can't seem to part with some of these items that I spent so long and worked so hard to get. 

Day 05 – Favourite item(s) in game

#5) Fortune Card - Not just any fortune card but the one that says: "Never trust a troll. Or a rogue. Especially a troll rogue." A buddy of mine from my old server, Tarajo, gave that to me. He was a Goblin Rogue. Now, he's Ojarat, a dirty Alliance whore.

#4) Eternal Quintessence - Back in the early days of Molten Core, you had to go on an annoying quest to get this to douse the runes. Sure, you could go get the individual use ones, but it was a pain in the ass to get them. See kids, we didn't have flying mounts then, so we had to ground mount EVERYWHERE. AND you had to be level 40 to get your mount. It sucked. Alot. So of course you wanted to have enough of these in raid to cover them all. Sure, you don't need to douse runes anymore when you go in there trying to farm for legendaries, and there's a Feat of Strength to prove I have this... but it is nice to actually have the stupid little item still.

#3) The Scepter of the Shifting Sands - This was part of another annoyingly long quest chain. Back in Classic, the whole realm had to participate in a huge event to open the Ahn'Qiraj 40m raid. Players of both factions had to gather cloth, and a whole bunch of other crap to turn in to their factions to support the cause. Remember the dooders you could turn cloth into for rep? They appeared for this event. Well at the end of this horribly long quest chain (which took you through Blackwing Lair and around Azeroth killing world dragons) you got this scepter which allowed you to bang the gong in front of AQ, thus opening the gate and getting rewarded with the Black Qiraji Battle Tank and title "Scarab Lord." If you completed the quest and went to bang the gong within 10 hours of the first person, you would receive the rewards as well. I , however, did not make it in time, but I hung on to this treasure.

#2) Flag of Ownership - I love this thing. I don't get to use it as often now that I'm running two PvE specs, though that is about to change again soon. I have mine macroed in with Cro's Apple so in addition to flagging a victim, I also roar and stomp them. Good times.

#1) Dirge's Kickin' Chimaerok Chops - This is no longer an "item" per se, but the recipe to learn this was. The recipe was part of the terribly long AQ 40 opening questline, and this was the only buff food at the time. Additionally, the recipe is still the only epic cooking recipe ever seen in the game. They were a pain in the ass to make as well... requiring you to go to the Isle of Dread to farm Chimaerok Tenderloin with a low drop rate, from mobs with about a 15 minute respawn rate. it sucked, but we did it to be on top of everything for raids. Unfortunately, even if you have the recipe, the Isle of Dread has sunk with the return of Deathwing, and therefore, you are no longer able to farm the meat to make this nostalgic food.

Honorable Mention: Thieves' Tools, Flash Powder, and Blinding Powder - These little tidbits of nostalgia still reside in my bank because I just can't let go of them. No longer used, they just take up space, but hey, you gotta be true to your roots, right?
