Can I just take a moment to say that I love the Darkspear Raptor? It's so freakin' girly!
Unfortunately, it's in Birdfall's colors and not Dusty's, so I don't think I'll get a lot of use out of it unless I force myself. Also, Dusty has the extra Sad Factor of being shadow and mounts not really showing in shadowform.
I know some people think "Shadowform's so COOL!" but when you've spent hours putting together an outfit and mount to coordinate down to the trim on your robe, it's kind of annoying to be one big block of black. It's also hard to remember to click shadowform off in town, since you're so busy (or, at least, I am), and it's foolish to click it off OUT of town, since you might get ganked (or, for you normal server sillies, ambushed by mobs).
So the idea of using this mount on Dusty seems impractical.
But . . . when has that ever stopped me?
I'm also pretty psyched by one of the Darnassus Champions -- she's Birdfall's twin. Dusty fights her every single day and I pretend she's fighting Birdfall. ^_^
Don't hate me for my RP. It's all I have to survive this PVP wasteland. RP, a supportive guild, mountains of stockpiled gold, and blood relatives I can con into doing anything for me. That's all. I'm languishing, I tell you!
