Frostbitten Progress, Day 2

I got a little disappointed today.  I took Dianara out rare hunting for her Frostbitten achievement at 5pm server time, and made a complete circle of Northrend to absolutely no avail.  I started to get worried that maybe I jumped the gun in assuring you that I could complete this achievement in 5 days or less.

Now, I know that Northrend has been relatively empty since the Cataclysm™, and that is in part why this technique is so successful.  Apparently everyone got bored this week.  There were 5 people camping Vyragosa/TLPD spawn spots.  And those were just the alliance campers.

So, I did the only logical thing I could think of.  I raided on my druid, Hearthyn.

After the raid, I decided that I really want the Time-Lost Proto-Drake mount on Hearthyn, and not Dianara.  So, since Dianara already has the Stormpeaks rares needed for the achievement, I parked Hearthyn up at the end of Bor's Breath near Siffreldar Village, sat for about 1/2 an hour, then logged Dianara on.  I began hunting rares on Dianara, and each time I killed one, I would log back on Hearthyn and camp Bor's Breath for another 1/2 hour or so, flying around every 10 minutes to make sure I didn't miss a spawning of either Vyragosa or Time-Lost.  I also checked Skoll and Dirkee's spawn spots, just in case they spawned instead.  If they had, I was prepared to kill them in an effort to attempt to speed up Vyra's or TLPD's spawn rate.

This was my first kill of the night:

Whoa!  I already got that one!  But then my efforts started to pay off:

Sadly, once again, Vyragosa spawned instead of Time-Lost Proto-Drake:

After that kill, I found some more new ones for the achievement on Dianara:

So, in 2 nights of hunting, I think I've actually made really good progress.

I just may make it yet!  Happy Hunting!
