We were the first on the server to take down Sartharion with three drakes up, but as we got more and more used to the content, we came to the point were everything got cleared in one night, i.e. Wednesday night, the one night I can’t play. This week, I got home early from work and got invited to the raid for Malygos and Sartharion. On Sartharion the drake dropped of course. The raid leader did a raid roll as usual and ended up with a person who already had a drake. New roll. The person he called out next passed. New roll. And that’s when it happened: my name came up.

So while I may not have a very fast flying mount, I have the fastest slow mounts around!
