Top Three Most Loved Items

For this week’s Blog Azeroth Shared Topic, Cymre from Bubbles of Mischief suggested:

What are the top three items on your main that you just love for sentimental, fun or silly reasons and would hate to lose? Tell us a story, what makes them so special and as always illustrate with screenshots.

My characters generally don’t have too much in their bags, aside having MS/OS/PvP gear already takes up most of the space. But with what room is left, I have a terrible habit of hoarding all sorts of trinkets (see: Rainbow Generator and Gus’ First Aid Kit to even old raid trinkets that I have a hard time tossing out like Grim Toll.) along with all the miscellaneous artifacts I’ve solved from Archaeology. (I like all the little toys in the game…it’s a growing problem!)

Here are the top three things that I’d hate to ever lose:

Landslide makes them even shinier…!

1. Fang of Oblivion – Yes, I know. The shiniest, sparkliest dagger of all. The first time I got to do the Algalon the Observer fight was during a PuG transmog run, and I swear by it when I say my rogue is my luckiest toon. The dagger dropped, and I won with a 94, beating out about 4-5 others. Offers were made to trade for it, but I wouldn’t trade them for anything! What’s strange is that I kept having it in my head that it was the spell dagger, Starshard Edge, but on closer glance at the stats, it was indeed the Agi one. Not that the stats mattered at that point, but it made me feel even more tingly with joy! Aside from me probably using this dagger model for a long while or until I tire of the shininess, I think the Algalon fight is one of my favorites in the game, and I only wish I could revisit it again. Reading this post from WoW Insider’s Know Your Lore really had me in even more awe.

Chalice of the Mountain Kings

2. Archaeology Toys – Okay, okay, I know this isn’t just one item. But it’s so hard for me to choose, and at times I’ll pop all of their cooldowns while standing around in a raid or dungeon, or even just waiting around. I’m not sure what’s more fun — having people ask where the sword-dancing dwarven ladies came from, or having another Archaeologist pop their Bones of Transformation at the same time! There was even once when I was in a random Hour of Twilight dungeon where a shaman and I would pop random artifacts in a kind of “go-fish” fashion while waiting for the RP events. Ancient Amber? Nope, go fish! Fun times, fun times.

Maybe one too many…

3. Hallowed Wands – Halloween is my favorite holiday, and my love for it stems in-game to Hallow’s End. I’m not sure when I decided it was a good idea, but I have a good assortment of all of the wands available (Bat, Leper Gnome, Ghost, Ninja, Pirate, Skeleton, Wisp) across my characters. It’s kind of embarassing. While my bank doesn’t look exactly like the screenshot over there, I’m sure it’d be similar if I combined the bank slots from all my alts. I have a few that have a couple charges used, so I really should take them out and use them. But I’m too sentimental and just don’t want to use them up…!

So there you have it! Now if only we had additional Void Storage or toy chest that would accommodate all of my trinkets and toys…

    My bank is full of hallowed wands and blossoming branches too. I keep telling myself I’ll just clear them out because there is always next year… but I never do.

    I love my Shovel of Mercy:

    Because even though it is not related to them, it’s in the same zone and reminds me of Twinkles and Johnny Awesome (http://www.wowhead.com/quest=28231 … DO IT FOR TWINKLES) and Kingslayer Orkus (http://www.wowhead.com/npc=48218).

      Oh man, that is an awesome mace and Use: text! I’m surprised that it is transmoggable since other “silly” models were disabled. Time to work on my farmer’s outfit… :D

    Those are the most sparkliest daggers ever. Yes. Most Sparkliest. OOH, A SHINY!

    I would have a really hard time with this one. I have SO MANY things. I am the worst pack rat…My bank is 100% full. I have maybe 10 slots open in my bags on Amber? And that’s just BoP stuff; I sent all the BoE stuff to my bank alt.

    Hi, I’m Ambermist, and I’m a hoarder.

    • Ninevi 06/08/2012 at 1:12 pm

      Haha, exactly! If only I could have all of my BoP stuff in an alt guild bank or something too. So much stuff we just don’t want to toss out!

    Holy crap that’s a lot of wands :P
    I agree with the Arch toys but I wish they didn’t take up so much room =/
    I’ve been wanting to farm that dagger on my priest for ages but it’s hard to get the opportunity these days… so many items that I’d love to get.

    • Ninevi 06/11/2012 at 7:33 pm

      (Adorable new avatar, Cym!)

      I wish we could just learn some of the toys like we do for companions so they wouldn’t take up so much room. :( And I hope you can get the dagger for your priest someday! Uld transmog runs are kinda rare on my server too…usually people advertise just for BT and Naxx.

    Yeah I loved taking out a Halloween wand and changing our main tank to a wisp in the middle of a raid lol. By the way sorry to bug you as I am sure you get messages like this all the time, but I was wondering if you could take a few minutes to watch this Wow video I made showing how to not play the game (comedy). thanks, Sarkoth77. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yLiNgXOcqKI&feature=plcp

    OMG, those wands Ninevi! I love that dagger too, I have one and I am such a hoarder… I didn’t do this topic because I would miss EVERYTHING!

    • Ninevi 06/23/2012 at 8:25 am

      I have…a wand problem! D:

      And I know what you mean. It’s so hard to throw things away or even imagine not having them because I just want to keep them all!

    I personaly can’t get through a single day without using one of my holloween wands on one of my buds.
