Rainbow bright

I’m not very good at saving money in real life, but I’m a little better at it in WoW (mostly because we don’t have to pay rent or anything in game hehe). I’m not the greatest at making gold at all; I don’t have the time or the patience. But I do make enough to support my raiding requirements, and every now and again am able to keep some extra aside.

There’s a world quest on the Broken Shore that Khadgar gives us, to find some Kirin Tor Coins that he’s managed to drop on the ground. When we find one, we get a very short buff that leaves a sparkling rainbow trail behind us when we walk. It’s the most beautiful effect, and have wished for a toy that would give that same buff. Turns out there is one.

The Mad Merchant is a rare NPC spawn in Dalaran, and oh boy does this guy clean out your bank. He only sells 4 items, the cheapest of which is 250,000 gold (yes, a quarter of a million). Thankfully, that cheapest item is the Prismatic Bauble, and it gives that same buff from the world quest, only this time it lasts a little bit longer, and can be used every 2 minutes.


I took my little Void Elf Warlock out for a run in the snow with it- isn’t is beautiful?!


So now I’m broke again… but I think it’s worth it πŸ˜€

    Gosh. I need that. I had no luck with that Merchant! Who am I kidding. As if finding him is the hard part for me :P. But I haven’t found him yet! Maybe he just shows himself for those with enough gold, hah? πŸ˜€

      hehe I think he shows up regardless… but yeah I have to admit purchasing the toy was only the 3rd time I’ve actually seen him since he was added to the game.

        I added him to my daily routine now, I must have that toy. And I sold a huge bunch of my Battle Pets to afford it. I didn’t have the time to look after all 600ish anyway… :p

    *How* much again? Oh, my. I think this is one of those things that I’m going to get at the end of the *next* expansion, kind of like how I didn’t get my Mog Yak from Mists until the very end of Warlords, just before Legion launched…
