We now interrupt your regularly scheduled druid-related posts to talk about something completely different.
While leveling, my absolute favorite quest was “At the Yak Wash”.
The premise of this yak wash quest is that the yaks go in dirty:
And comes out clean! That’s right, they change colors!
The sad part of this quest, however, was that once you finished it, the quest wasn’t repeatable. While you could buy yak mounts from the vendor (either a gray one or a blonde one), it wasn’t quite the same as the magical color-changing yaks from the quest.
In the recent patch notes, however, was a line that said this:
The Yak Wash will now make all but the filthiest Yaks sparkling clean.
So, I decided to take my dirty yak mount back to the wash:
And my yak mount changed colors! It washed my yak mount! It’s a temporary effect (when you dismount & re-mount, they revert back to their original colors), but it makes me really happy to see the attention to detail. So, what is your favorite part of Mists of Pandaria?
