Dariakuhn at buys a mount
It wasn't quite the plan, I had a mounted troll mage when my friend Cruwelknolle (human warlock) decided to start playing WoW. Dariakuhn (human mage) was simply a bank for Crixikuhn, and more rich than any of my other characters ever were, all at level 12.
Today, she bought her mount, making her my 8th mounted character. She'll probably get to 60, simply because she enjoys playing with Cruwelknolle, Shmendric (gnome mage), and Arrie (human paladin).
However, my next horde character to mount will be Akalakuhn for a wolf. I need to explore more of that story line. And I still need a Tauren Kodo, as well.
The extra human mount will have to make up for my lack of a paladin steed.
