I picked up an epic flying mount for my main perhaps six months ago now, and zooming around at Ludicrous Speed with Crusader Aura on has been fun, but trying to farm for herbs and ore on my alt has been a horrible sluggish 60%-speed pain.
So I bought her an epic flying mount as well.
I’d been agonising about it for a few weeks; 5,000 gold on an alt? But I’ve been farming on her for a few days now, and I don’t regret it at all – farming is fast, easy and rewarding now, and that makes it actually fun. I can’t remember the last time farming for anything was fun.
(Also, sorry it’s been so quiet around these parts. RL stuff + big posts still in draft phase + social calendar = temporarily-quiet blog.)
