So, recently I've taken a bit of a break from my main.  I've been playing some alts in WoW, playing Aion, and occupying my time with other various things.  Last Thursday, I logged into Syrana to do some dailies and quest a bit in Icecrown.  It was fun, since I hadn't done dailies in quite some time.  Plus, I really needed some gold.  Prior to taking the break from the daily grind, I had dropped a lot of g on mounts.

Well, Sunday evening we returned from being out of town.  Sideshow logs in and sees he's quite close to completing Leading the Cavalry, so he buys up some mounts…

Sideshow says: "Ha! I beat you!"
Sideshow says: "Ha! I beat you!"

Of course, I cannot let this go for long.  I knew I was relatively close to completing this achievement myself.  I log on, check auctions (yay! money!) then hop on Syrana to do some dailies.  I take a look at my status and see I only need 2 more mounts.  I hadn't bought all the Nether Riding Rays yet, so off I went to Skettis and evened up the score!

Syrana says: "I shoulda bought more Rays last Thursday..."
Syrana says: "I shoulda bought more Rays last Thursday..."

So we are now the proud owners of the fugliest drakes in game.  Woo!

  • Awesome – I too have this mount, and I agree, its fugly in a respect (in my opinion its face represents a clown, white and drab).

    However, doesn’t it feel cool to ride? It sticks out like a sore thumb in the dark places of northerend, particularly Icecrown.

    Grats all the same, Grtz sideshow and syrana!

    Im 10 mounts off the Mountain’o’mounts /flex

  • Congratuations!
    I’m even less likely to get this one than the Violet proto. 🙂
    Although, I have to agree with Syrana that the Albino is fugly. I’d go with the violet. 😛

  • @Frijona – I dunno, I think I like the pseudo-violet one better… not quite my shade, but seems to have a nicer look to it (imo anyway!)

    @Hinenuitepo – Thanks! 😀


We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
