|Anselma on her Turquoise Raptor. Love the war paint!|
"Can you buy me a raptor?" asks some random 20-ish person. I replied in the negative, stating that this mount was earned by another character and I didn't have the reputation. I thought there might be another reason, aside from the fact that I had about 1 gold on Anselma due to auction house binges for crafting supplies. It occurred to me to look on WoWhead. Sure enough, right in the item description for the Whistle of the Emerald Raptor, are the words "Binds when picked up". Ha! I now had ammunition. You see, this wasn't the first time someone had asked me to go get them a certain racial mount. I'm sure it would not be the last.
I worked hard, first on Halinka, then on Delgadita, to get the reputation required to buy all the faction mounts. It is even easier than that now. All you have to do is roll up one of each race and get them to first 20, then 40, to be able to learn all the mounts and then they are available account wide. One server for Horde, one for Alliance, and you can pass all your heirloom cloth around to help them level, if you have it.
