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.

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.
