It has taken nine days to earn 2400 battle pet polished charms. And there were a few times when I spent way too much time on it. So, lets be reasonable about it and do better at picking and choosing and time management. I am now right at 6000, stack height is 1000 (and they look pretty nice in my bank).
Confidence is high that I’ll reach 10,000 by the patch drop date and if I don’t; that’s okay too.
What has been surprising to me is the number of players still in BfA. The times I went over to Mechagon for a pet battle, the /general chat channel as been active. I see players in Boralus. Others must be doing the same as me when I see several players at a distant pet battle in Voldun.
I did a Throne of Thunder run and was very pleased to get the Son of Animas battle pet. This will be needed for one of the raid achievements in the Castle! So, a rare drop finally dropped. So you remember the rare spawn outside of the ToT raid entrance? I think it may drop a mount — there were eight players waiting for the spawn (I stopped and counted)!
So: I am reporting to you – it can feel like Shadowlands is empty with only a couple of players running around when you do stuff. Forget not that this is a huge game with many expansions and players are all over the place in the many different zones.
Spring as arrived, the rose bushes are in bloom.
