The Blogazeroth Topic this week was suggested by Feral Tree:

What items or mementos have you kept (in your toon’s pack or bank) and why?

I’ve been damn near ruthless in getting rid of crap that I don’t need, since bag space is money, friends, with 2 sets of gear for dual spec.

Except for one thing: The Ornate Spyglass.

When ArcaneTinkerTank and I were clueless noobs on our very first characters (me a priest and him a pally), he took up engineering and made me a spyglass.  It was one of the first things he made that wasn’t a boring tube or a widget or whatever, and he was very excited about it.  We’ve since changed servers and names in the process, but I still have that spyglass, which proudly notes in the tooltip that it was crafted by his original toon’s name.


All that you can’t leave behind: Mementos — 8 Comments

  1. That’s a cute story. I remember being super excited when I first learned to craft things.
    My favorite memento is also something someone crafted for me, but I plan to make a post on it this week too, so I won’t elaborate yet. 😛

  2. I am, admittedly, a bit of a packrat, but some of my favorites:
    Six demon bag  (rofl, big trouble in little china)
    Mr. Pinchy (My bank is his prison.  He shall not elude me again)
    Smoking heart of the mountain (It’s a matter of principal.. )

  3. I still have the two mail pieces of undead-hunting gear that I got during the Scourge Event pre-Wrath. They were my first epics (had never been in an instance, let alone raiding guild), and I remember heading out there to the event locations solo and fighting to tag/kill the special mobs before actual groups and parties could, and also roaming around EPL finding rarespawn mobs for their drops. It was really memorable.  I used that gear well into Wrath (till at least 75) so I’ll always keep it. 😀

  4. Easy.  Piccolo of the Flaming Fire.  Randomly dropped on my first Strat run.  I have been annoying people ever since.

  5. I keep alot of the wierd stuff around, like the Argent Horn, that calls a level 60 pally for a few seconds, the piccolo, super simian sphere,  Just odds and ends like that.

  6. I recently did a ruthless clean out of my bank and bags. I have a DPS set and about 4 variations of prot sets in my bags/bank.
    However along with a few questy special things…I still have my Recruit’s Shirt.
    I may not play on an RP server, but my toons each have their special quirks.  Zurena’s is nostalgia.

  7. Wow this gotta be the SHORTEST list ever – you sure had it easy on this topic, didnt you? 😛
    well I couldn’t do it…it took me an hour just to decide on my mementos and I never held on to that spyglass for one hehe.
