wabbits Canopic Jars.
I have Archaeology and Alchemy on my Mage alt, which naturally means I’m out searching for the Vial of the Sands recipe any time I get a chance.
Tol’Vir absolutely hates me! I have solved two 150 mark rares, and probably around 100 other solves. Out of those 10 have been Canopic Jars. None of them contained the precious recipe that I’m after.
I will continue my hunt for the pattern, but I will admit – it grates me to know that my brother started the search last Sunday and got it after five Canopic Jars a few days later! Can you spell unfair?
I guess random drops are random.
It’s still unfair though because he also got Zin’rokh. All I got was a hand-me-down dress for cloth alts – which I don’t have because they’re all 85. (It is rather pretty though, I guess I could stand around in Stormwind and show it off.)
I want my Vial of the Sands dangit! Give it to me!
I think what I find the most annoying (except for my brother getting it before me and being on another realm so I can’t buy it off him) is that I have to do all of the digging on an alt. I’d have liked to do it on my Warlock for the achievements, but she doesn’t have Alchemy.
How is Archeology working for you guys? Are you getting the items that you want? I’ll admit though, I find Archeology fairly boring still, but I find that it works out nicely if I’m on the laptop and watching a TV show or movie at the same time.
PS. I’ve updated the Bane of Havoc guide to include the Firelands fights where I’ve so far found that it might be useful.
PS 2. Off-Topic – I’ve decided to pick up on my personal blog again. It’s nothing too interesting of course, but if anyone’s interested there’s a link up in the Contact widget on the side.
PS 3. I’m incredibly proud of my Horde alt’s guild for killing Shannox on the very first try. Obviously it was all due to my awesome healing *cough* Okay fine, also the other healers.. oh and I guess the dps.. and the tanks.. and… fine – everyone did a splendid job!
