To those who do read my blog, I'm sure you all know how much I love my tallstrider mounts and matching hunter pets. I never can resist the opportunity to take a fun screen shot as well. So for your viewing pleasure I've snapped this screenie of my hunter with her new mount and pet in my all time favorite location in the game.
For any hunters interested in obtaining this matching pet, it is incredibly easy to get. You can get this skin in Northern Barrens from the Fleeting Plainstriders which are level 12-13. You can also find this skin in Mulgore from the Elder Plainstriders which are level 8-9.
The Swift Springtrider mount as I'm sure most of you are already aware, can be purchased from any of the Noblegarden vendors for 500 Noblegarden Chocolates. Chocolates drop from eggs at a 1:1 ratio. There is also an incredibly small chance that you can obtain one from a Brightly Colored Egg. I was not lucky enough to see one from an egg and had to purchase it. It took a couple of hours tops, so it wasn't that painful.
For anyone seriously interested in farming eggs for this pretty birdy I would recommend staying away from Razor Hill on Horde side and Goldshire on Alliance if your on a big server, at least for the first few days. On my Alliance server in Goldshire there were people that had "claimed" each egg spawn point, some spawns even had a couple of people sitting on them fighting over the spawns. (NOT fun hunting for eggs that way, imo.) I farmed for my eggs at Azure Watch outside of the Exodar, which had about a quarter of the number of people hunting for eggs in Goldshire. On Horde side I had better luck in Bloodhoof Village.
Happy Noblegarden to all, and good luck finding those eggs!
