Well look who showed up in Booty Bay unannounced! That's right, as of the latest maintenance (or maybe the latest patch, I hadn't noticed him before), Landro Longshot, he of the collectible cardgame
in-game rewards, is standing by in Booty Bay for your code. He's offering everything they promised he would be
, including some cool tabards, a hippogryph pet, and the fantastically awesome riding turtle.
And just in time, too, because just in case you've forgotten, we'll remind you that the card game due to come out tomorrow
, October 25th. Being a CCG rookie, I have no idea where you'd find such a thing (are there actual CCG stores? Maybe just look in a gaming store), but if you want it, boxes and packs will be there for the selling. I haven't quite decided whether I'm going to pick it up or not yet. I don't have anyone to play with (because card games are for, y'know, nerds), but then again, I'd really appreciate a turtle mount. I guess if I happen to be out somewhere and see them in front of my face, I might grab a pack or two and try my luck.
And speaking of upcoming dates and prizes, Neth reminds us all
that the Blizzcon gift cards (with beta key and Murky the murloc pets) will expire at the end of the week, on October 28th. If you've still got a card, use it, for Thrall's sakes! And if you're not going to use it, email me, because I'll pay you to ship that thing to me as fast as Fedex will go. Not because I love Murky (I want to drop kick that thing every time my guildie pulls his out), but because I'll take any chance I can get to check the expansion before 2007 shows up.Update:
Um, scratch that last note. Zollo provides us with a link (thanks!) that says Blizz is giving everyone plenty of time
to turn in their pets at a special page just for redemption
. On the other hand, if you already dropped your card in the mail to me, you lost your chance. Sucker!
