It can be discouraging to farm for mounts, transmogs, or battle pets only to have each week, every day met with disappointment. What if I told you not to give up that hope? That it’s closer than you think.
I know the drop rates for some mounts like Invincible may seem next to impossible to get. But let’s say you have 10 high-level characters, that’s 10 chances a week you have to get the mount. It can be discouraging, even depressing for those who really have their hearts set on certain mounts.
It took me 2 years of farming weekly to get Ashes of Alar, and what seemed like forever for Invincible. When I finally got Invincible, I squealed. I actually wish I was streaming
If you give up because you lose all hope, then you’re right. With the pessimistic attitude and “I’ll never get it” Your right, because you gave up. If you give up, how can you expect to have that prize? I farmed every week faithfully for Invincible, and now he is one of the prettiest mounts I own.
We all hope for something better, whether it’s in our personal lives or in our game lives. Our game lives tend to pour into our RL lives as well. If I say “I want The Blazing Drake” and I don’t actually run Dragon Soul or try to get this beautiful mount, how could I ever expect to get the mount? You can’t.
Embrace The Failures
Your looking at the title and thinking “How can I do that? Failures are not good.” They are if you think about them differently. Instead of having them set you back or discourage you, think “It’s okay. I’ll get it next time.” Actually work on it, embracing the fact you didn’t get it this time, if your having fun then that means tomorrow or next week you get to have fun with it again. if your not having fun, try having a friend join you, that could make it fun.
It may help you to keep your hopes up by making little affirmations to yourself daily. Make little notes that give you hope. You can write things down like “I will get this.” I always told people, I don’t care if I run ICC every week for the next 5 years, I will get my hands on Invincible. Granted, it didn’t take 5 years, it only took 2.
I know it can be hard to keep hope up. It’s very easy to get discouraged, some players I know have quit the game because they didn’t get something they wanted badly. Instead of giving up, let that failure drive you, make you determined, allow it to encourage you. Do not give up, rest assured that pretty mount or pet or transmog you want will show up in your inventory one day.
