Even SLOWER Week

Does anyone even come here anymore? With the lack of excitement lately I've made myself obsolete, oh noes!. After all those early blogs when stuff seemed to happen everyday, I've done a complete switch to a place where more action happens while painting a wall.

However I swear it's not due to a lack of effort. Dakona continues to plug away each day trying to shake the rust from this slump. I've been doing Heroic: Sethekk Halls everyday, still chasing that damn Raven's Lord. I then take the long flight to Howling Fjord and enter Heroic: Utgarde Pinnacle in hopes Skadi the Ruthless will drop Reins of the Blue Proto-Drake for me. And when I'm really desperate I hop inside The Stonecore and make my way to Slabhide to try my luck at a Reins of the Vitreous Stone Drake drop. Any one of these drops would make for an exciting blog update and of course I do it only for you guys but alas I've come up empty time and time again.

I will share a secret I was planning on keeping to myself until I got it, but its been three weeks now so I'm starting to think it's not going to be as easy as I hoped. I've been spending a lot of time in Deepholm lately. As a hunter it's no surprise I enjoy the boring camp of a rare spawn. However it appears Dakona has met her match. I've now officially spent more than 300 hours waiting for Aeonaxx to spawn. This is the third week I've dedicated to seeking this bugger out. My worst fear is that he has spawned when I'm inside a heroic or doing one of my daily mount runs but of course he could very well have spawned while I was at work, or maybe he hasn't spawned at!

I've actually came close to getting him, and it's been motivating and disheartening ever since. On my second day of camping I wasn't taking it as seriously as I probably should have. I had my NPCscan on and was doing some odds and ends around the house. At one particular time around 1:00 am I went downstairs to grab my laundry and something on T.V ended up catching my eye. It was about 15-20 minutes before I made my way back upstairs to my computer and this was what I saw...


I searched and searched for about 20 minutes and didn't see anything. I whispered some people in the area to see if anyone had seen someone riding it but nothing. Someone told me a horde warrior was seen in Orgrimmar a few days later on one but I cannot be sure he got this particular spawn. It was good because I had confirmation it existed, however three weeks later I would realize how rare that opportunity was. I've refused to watch Criminal Minds ever since, as it surely costed me a Reins of the Phosphorescent Stone Drake.

I will continue to plug away, not just for myself but for you 3 or 4 readers who have not given up on me. I will make you proud, I promise!

Your posts don't go unread! And I feel your pain in missing the rare spawn- hapened to me looking for Samba in Twilight Highlands the other day. I must've missed the initial sighting and furiously clicked on the NPC target button as I flew around like a maniac, to no avail.

I too, have been running for the Raven mount lately and have ben coming up empty, though I think I'm making a killing on selling green drops, lol. I've never even tried looking for Aeonaxx- isn't he sorta the Time-Lost Proto Drake of Cataclysm? I've probably spent far too many hours flying around Storm Peaks looking for that one.

Don't give up!

I caught this dragon in the first 10 minutes of search. I just started doing circles around the temple and decided to search in google his respawn time. And suddenly NPC scan showed that dragon, he was 30 meters away from me! I could not believe my luck.
Now I'm trying to catch The Lost in time Proto-Drake, but I think it's just a lost of time. Tell me how you caught your Proto-Drake?

I was really expecting you to have made a new post about getting him =]

Guess that's coming soon.

Thanks for the comments guys! I do have some news but I wanted to put together a little something for it. Unfortunately I've been called into work this weekend so I don't have the time. Expect a big blog post on Monday! Ohhh cliff hanger!

As for the Time-Lost Proto Drake, this was my blog entry: http://dakona.blogspot.com/search/label/Time-Lost%20Proto%20Drake

It kind of just fell into my lap but it is very similar to the Aeonaxx spawn.
