I hope everyone had a wonderful Winter Veil this year. This turned out to be the most generous gift-giving (and receiving) season I’ve had – in the whole time I’ve been playing – so I’d like to thank all the people who had a hand in it.

I also wanted to keep track of who I’d given gifts to this year as I’ll likely forget by the time next year.

Tome - Jade owl

I wanted to give Tome something personal for all her support over the last year. It’s not always easy being the first one to comment on a blog post but she does it more often than not so thank you.

Matty - Sapphire cub

Again, I felt a personal touch was needed (even though Matty was a JC herself) so I looked for something she didn’t have yet. I even used a battle-stone before they hotfixed them all to uncommon quality.

By now, I had run out of Spirits of Harmony… =/

To JD (who was a little too efficient at making the panthers) plus had the Jade Owl and Sapphire Cub already ended up getting Lil Smoky.

In the meantime, I’d been trying to get a Gundrak Hatchling (even before Navi‘s birthday) which included some farming and multiple server drop-ins but no luck there. Navi gave me the Burning Spirit I was missing.

For Arv, I saw that I had some spare marks to supplement my Molten Front dailies but no luck on the Searing Scorchling either. Arv gave me another TCG pet.

Angelya scored a Jade Owl (well, actually it was mine since the first was given to Tome so I ended up remaking her twice). I figured I could just build up some more spirits over time, which I did. Ang bought me a Guardian Cub as part of my Secret Santa gift.

Effy - Aqua strider

As part of Effy‘s #FFW gift, I thought the strider would make a great Shammy companion.

Shawndra - Cinder Kitten

Then for my recent Cinder Kitten giveaway, Shawndra turned out to be the lucky recipient after writing such a playful piece.

Cool - Water spirit

To the person who introduced me to The Last Airbender, Cool’s gift would have to be a Pandaren Spirit, it was just a matter of which. Cool purchased a Cinder Kitten for me as soon as it came out.

Kamalia and Grinder

After Kamalia showed an interest in Pet Battling, I gifted her Grinder.

Others came to mind as potential gift recipients but didn’t quite work out – a few others didn’t show the skill for Pet Battling or had lost touch with them since April.

Lastly, thx to Roshii for wishing me a Merry Christmas late that night.

So there you have it, in some cases, it was a lot tougher trying to find a suitable gift but I’d like to thank everyone for their generosity and support over a rough year.

I wish you all good health, happiness and prosperity in the coming year.
