First Post

well i find it a little silly that i have to make a new blog just for vanity pet talk, but most people just don't get it or want to hear it. so... here i am! err.. i guess this is the part where i get the embarrassing introductions out of the way.

i've been playing WoW for about 4 years now. my first pet was the Siamese Cat (from deadmines), which was passed to me oh so lovingly..... because it was such a common drop and everyone else had already gotten it. -_-

when did my pet collecting grow into an obsession? it's hard to say, really. i think my desire to "collect them all" truly exploded during BC.

but even before then, whenever i had the chance or opportunity, i would grab a pet here and there, mainly from vendors. i enjoyed having a small companion follow me aimlessly around azeroth as i quested, leveled, and did other mundane activities.

pretty soon my collection had grown to a hefty size and i reached a turning point; what to do now that all the vendor pets were bought and ooo'ed and ahh'ed over?? i started to do some research on the harder to obtain pets. the challenge seemed so exciting and enticing, especially when you're dealing with numbers such as 1 in 1,000.

i didn't mind the grinding, farming, and endless waiting. it felt really rewarding to finally reach the end of the rainbow and find a cute little pet waiting for me. not to mention that pet collecting was still mainly an underground activity, and most didn't see the point. competition for pets was next to zero.

fast forward weeks, months years, and now i am here. my pet collection is still growing, but never complete.

i've had a love/hate relationship with pet collecting thus far. some changes i absolutely loved (THANK YOU LEARN ON EQUIP PET ITEMS!) and some changes i didn't find as appealing.

Perks N Peeves will serve as a place where i discuss these likes/dislikes when it comes to WoW companion pets. hopefully those of like mind will make their way here and find some of the rants written at least a little amusing/informational.
