Last week it was Arvash (over at The Crimson Hammer)'s 1 year blogiversary. Arv asked people to "leave a comment, explaining what superhero, or supervillain, your Warcraft character would most resemble" for a chance at winning an Armored Bloodwing or one of two Blossoming Ancient.
There were some really good answers and some funny ones. Here's my answer: "I’d like to say that my hunter’s most like Hawkeye because she’s an excellent aim but I’m not sure how true that actually is… Nontheless, Hawkeye is brilliant ". Arv soon pointed out to me that Hawkeye doesn't use pets - he's missing out if you ask me.
I was well chuffed to find that I'd won a Blossoming Ancient pet with the downside being I already had one. However, Arv offered me any other pet from the pet store and a number of TCG loot pets - including the Sand Scarab. I've wanted the Sand Scarab for a while and had been intending to buy it for myself (for real money) as the cost on my server AH would swallow up all my gold.
Needless to say I went for the Scarab and have named him Arvash. The Scarab's carapace pattern is much prettier than I'd imagined it would be and he does this cool look from side-to-side every now and then.
A massive thanks to Arv for the Scarab and congratulations to the other winners Cain and Lyss!
