The Spectral Tiger Owner’s Club
The Spectral Tiger Owner’s Club is a column featuring the elite gold makers of World of Warcraft who have bought the expensive Trading Card Game Mount “Spectral Tiger”, either the rare blue, tiger, or the epic purple tiger mount.
Today we have Brandi who will be sharing her success story.
Please tell us a little about yourself, how long you have been playing Warcraft, and what parts of it you enjoy the most.
Hello there, I’m Brandi I play a Blood Elf hunter, sometimes a lesser geared hunter alt. I started playing Warcraft in 2008 shortly before Wrath came out. As far as what i enjoy the most: friendships #1 thing is friends I hate doing things solo. Other than that I am big on achievements and reps makes me feel like I did something good.
When did you see your first Spectral Tiger mount, and how did you feel?
Oh geez, I would have to say Mist of Pandaria would be the first time I can remember (I have a horrible memory). I saw some of the top end raiders at the time running around on it and I had to have it.
How long did it take you to get the gold you needed for the Spectral Tiger?
Uhm whatever day Hellfire Citadel came out. That’s when I really started to push for earning and saving gold.
How much did your Spectral Tiger cost?
Mine was non-swift, on a not so popular realm, so I paid 290k
How did you get the gold you needed to pay for it? Did you use professions, garrisons, sell services for other players, or work the Auction House?
Medallions, lots of em. Also 6 garrisons up and running with treasure hunters. I think maybe 5% of my profit has been transmog (shadowfang keep mostly).
Thinking about how you made the gold you needed, how did you learn how to make it? Was it an easy process or was it a steep learning curve?
Honestly, once i found out gold making areas that worked for me i used it as a distraction and a challenge to say i was doing something.
What addons, if any, do you use to help you make gold?
Zero nothing nada. I dont even use a mailbox addon.
Do you have any other gold making goals? Are there other mounts you want to own? Do you already have other status symbols?
Eventually, I want the swift spectral, and maybe the magic rooster which I almost bought instead.. woops!
What makes the Spectral Tiger so special? And when you got it, did you celebrate in any particular way?
It’s a freaking cat mount and I love it. I love the colors the way it runs Mew:3 and stuff lol And yes I posted on twitter about it and had a mini celebration running around Warspear.
Do you have any special gold making tips that you would like to share?
Missions, lots of missions. Also salvage yard vendoring the greens add up. Find a class you know well and know how to mass pull with before trying to find an area to farm.
What are your future plans with WoW?
Wow is what I do, all day every day, its a pleasure and a curse all at once for being disabled. I plan to not only keep farming gold (cause now I need some lol) but also working on achievements and getting back into my love for pet battles
Anything else to add?
Cat mounts the game needs more cat mounts!
Thanks Brandi and welcome to the club!
