Hey guys, in this post I share my achievement of getting the Sapphire Whale, a +400 mount and other points. This was not a luck drop from a chest, but it was done completely free way by gathering Beast Souls for a long time. It costed a whooping 6240 Beast Souls which took months to gather and it was both tough and exciting to press the buy button, because I did not want to “lose” that large amount I gathered 🙂
Funny Comments / Mount Design
In-game I saw a bunch of funny comments about this mount, which surprised me because my original impression when I rode the mount was that it looks big and sort of pretty. But some players talked about the mount looking like a certain body part [:)] or even a large blue women’s “toy” [ooOOo]; we had a good laugh 😛
RE: Mount Shop Buying Strategy
I put a couple of links in the references below related to my strategy of buying mounts as a reminder. I think the strategy is still valid and actually even more valid since lower stat mounts became easier to get via event chest / mini item exchanges and small recharges. I believe (but don’t have proof) that as the game develops and releases higher stat mounts (+400, +500, etc) then they will give out the lower stat “old” mounts for free or nearly for free.
Picture and References
Below you can see the picture I prepared showing Cosmos mounted on the Sapphire Whale, which actually is a flying mount (a bit weird for fish to fly :P) and also showing the Mount Shop cost, the system announcement and Deep Sea Goliath title.
