Answer: yes.

Despite the fact we were going to be away this weekend and would therefore lose a reasonable chunk of the playing time for Children's Week, Mardia rocked up in Eye of the Storm on Friday night for a final last attempt to capture a flag.

And she got it. 4 achievements in one - the one for the flag capture, the one for the Children's Week Battlegrounds, the overall Children's Week one, and the meta-meta for completing all the seasonal metas. The sense of relief at finishing it was enormous, especially since as when she was halfway back to the Alliance tower with the flag (the first time she'd managed to get her hands on it at all), the tower fell to the Horde. However, she turned and started running towards another tower, one that was surrounded by Alliance, and it became ours just as she got there.

And Mardia now has that violet drake, and I have the knowledge that I never ever have to fight in a battleground again.

Midnight before last ... which is why Friday night was our last possible playing time, as we were visiting Oxford on Saturday and Sunday.

I still didn't manage to get School of Hard Knocks completed. I am vaugely despairing that I'll ever get the damn drake.

I was getting deeply, deeply frustrated, and I quite understand. Why, dear Blizzard, if I've chosen PvE rather than PvP, must I have to do any PvP?

I gather that 310% flying speed is to arrive as a learned skill with Cataclysm. As a minor note, if you have one of the Sparkly Ponies (you poor sad person you, if you do ... oh, wait!), its flying speed also rises to 310% once one has the flying drake. This is not the case with any of the other flying mounts Mardia has, even her DK flying mount.

Even as someone who does do PvP when the mood takes me the achievements just break the game play for everyone, I'm still not sure why blizz do it other than to try and get more people pvping in the hopes it ups interest in the arena (which they've admitted was a mistake).

I'm after the drake as the probably most likely way to achieve 310%, since Gladiators Frostwyrms and heroic raiding are really not likely to be within my reach ever. Purple drake is pretty, but frankly, so's my green one. Purple is just faster. I won't be able to complete the meta before Cata now, so if 310% is going to only require gold, then it's time to start working on having 20k plus by the time Cata drops I guess.

The mount I most seriously want is the Headless Horseman's. Flying Felsteed with Green Fire Hooves for my Warlock main. WANTS!!!

The hints so far indicate that it'll be a learnable of some form at 85, I suspect it'll be anther 1k or so gold, something to soak up some of the excess cash from the levelling process.

Grr I hope not! (And for me the violet drake was a by-product - it was the meta meta achievement I was after). Mardek got the meta meta (and therefore his violet drake) on Thursday night, and those on Vent were treated (if that's the word)to me doing an abbreviated version of *that* scene from "When Harry Met Sally", so pleased was I to have got that particular achievement out of the way. Have I said recently how much I *hate* pvp?

You don't like PvP? I'd never have guessed!

The achievements for the holidays are a pain in PvP, though as a way of blowing off the frustration of the pvp we were forced into I've slapped back on some fresh plate resi gear and smashed some horde face doing the thing properly.

10k honour kills... yes we can.
