This morning I came in and started opening packs between bugs. Some pretty cool stuff in there, the game looks interesting. We’ll probably play a few rounds on Monday if we can find the time.
In addition to the normal cards, there are three ultra-rare cards that have serial numbers on them that can be used to get a few cool little in-game toys. Apparently the odds of getting one of these cards are something like 1 in every 3 or 4 boxes of 24 packs.
I got the baby hippogryph pet. It’s ADORABLE, like a baby Toucan Sam with antlers. I’ve not scratched the card off yet, am still debating what to do with it. The cards are listing for $75-150 on ebay right now and there are a veritable ton of them for sale. I somehow doubt that mine’d sell if I posted it. And I’m not entirely sure I’d want to sell it for $100. But there’s also no way on earth that I’d pay $100 for it. So, dillema.
Also, unlike CoH/CoV’s in-game account ugprade type rewards, this reward (and all of WoW’s, actually) is a one time serial. You use it on one character and that’s it.
So, while I do have the little side-hobby of collecting mini-pets in the game, I rarely use them. I mean, I’ve probably broken out my worg puppy less than 10 times since I got him. I’ve not used my mechanical chicken in months, etc… So, who knows?
