Burning a hole in my pocket

Last week, my playing on the auction house had netted me a little over 14,000 gold. Yipee! Gem sales are paying off nicely for me. Last night I got a 5x proc on the Cardinal Ruby, and they are selling for 180g on my server, so I am hoping for some nice income this week. Not bad from farmed eternals and a drop off Occulus "bag".

Either way, the mechano-hog is dominating my thoughts. Yes, I want my warlock to have a hog. Looking at the mats required for creating one, I am looking at immediately 12,500g out of pocket just for the basics, then it will require 12 titansteel bars (or 36 titanium bars and 12x3 eternals).

Luckily I have 2 engineers in guild that have the pattern and it looks like titansteel no longer has a cool-down. I am going to have to spend a few days in Wintergrasp farming eternals so that I can have them.

Hmm, per a comment on the hog parts vendor, they can be farmed from Ulduar bosses. Can hope that the weekly raid is Ulduar this week.. :)  (with a less than reasonable drop rate)

On the other hand, maybe I should take advantage of my Kirin'tor rep and just get the 3-man mammoth mount??. It's only 16k for the mount and has vendors!! Great for repairs while out questing (soon to happen again in Cataclysm). After pricing out all the mats I would probably have to buy, it will probably cost about the same.

October Update

Class mount for Elkagorasa - completed. I am actually more excited now that I've completed it than when I wrote about it during...
