The State of the Menagerie: Doo DoDo DoDoDoDoDo DoDooo

It’s time to tell you about the state of my menagerie. I’m always on a quest to find more cute, fluffy types in whatever games I’m playing and I’ve picked up a few things in the past couple of weeks.

First, I’d like to show off my Green Quaggan Backpack! While technically not a minipet, a mount, or even a combat pet, it is adorable and I’ve wanted one since I first spotted it in the gemstore. I’d actually forgotten about it until it showed up in my mailbox. It was a gift for people who bought gems in December with real world dosh. I loves it. It’s even cuter than the blue one in the gem store.

Next, I’ll do the mini-pets. Starting with my Plush Gryphon. I’ve been working really hard since getting my PC to complete the Wintersday achievements in time to get this little guy because he’s so freaking cute I needed him. Finally picked him up the other night without having to complete the jumping puzzle – which I tried for hours and hours, I swear – or the 15 rounds of Snowball Mayhem which was fun but it took up so much time.. My favourite was definitely Toypocalypse. I ran it one night with some guildies and the next I pugged it to finish things off. So much fun.

Onwards to FFXIV where I upgraded to the collector’s edition in the past week, thanks to a very generous pair of grandparents. I’ve wanted the Baby Behemoth since I first spied him at launch and gave him the name ‘Pig in a Wig’. I adore the way he playfully bounces around, while idle and while running after your character. Super cute!

And finally, the mounts. The Coeurl is the mount you receive from the collector’s edition of FFXIV and I have a lot of love for it. It looks amazing and the music that plays while you’re mounted on it is so pretty. I had to unlock my Chocobo first however…

Which I finally got last night! He’s called Chip. And my word do you have to work for him! You have to complete a looong story quest line which has you run 3 dungeons and a kind of mini-dungeon, as well as hopping all over the place checking out the different Grand Companies and so on. Then, once you’ve chosen a Grand Company, you have to grind 2,000 company seal which doesn’t take as long as it might sound but seriously, it’s a relief when the achievement finally pops up and he plods over to you with a little, “Kweh!” And I love the full song that plays while you’re running around on your chocobo. It’s so happy and cheerful.

What is the state of your menageries like? Fresh straw, I hope!

  1. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but
    I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with
    hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of
    a good platform.

    1. I adore Guild Wars 2, it’s such a fun game. So many random things to do around the place. Sure, can be grindy, but if you don’t play it every single night it’s not an issue.
