Sandstone Drake-Vial of the Sands!!!

I finally looted the Vial of the Sands recipe on Hearthyn a few days ago.  And of course, I didn't have enough gold to make the drake.

So I've spent the last few days farming in between making sure Dirathyn was ready to raid with her guild this week.  And I was getting closer, but still about 10 grand short.

And then, it happened:  I was farming Azshara's Veil in the Abyssal Depths.  When I port to Vash'jir, I port into Darkbreak Cove.

As soon as I ported in, Silver Dragon alerted me that Ghostcrawler was out.  I've never seen him, so I headed up over Darkbreak Cove, past Korthun's End and toward  Underlight Canyon.  As I neared the edge, Silver Dragon went off again.  Confused, I looked at the alert, and lo and behold!  It was Poseidus.  And he was still alive!

Here he is:

Now, he drops, of course, the Reins of Poseidus.

And Hearthyn already has Mountain o'Mounts.

So I put that beauty on the auction.  It sold within the first hour.

Now, I made mats and had a lot saved for the rest of the mats for Vial of the Sands.  But people are really ignorant sometimes, and there were several up for auction with a buyout price of 23,399 gold.  Since the Sands of Time alone would cost me 24,000 gold as I'm not in a level 25 guild on Hearthyn, I went ahead and bought Vial of the Sands on the auction.

I am a Sandstone Drake.  I can give a friend a ride.

I love this game!

Happy Farming!
