Blaugust Day 12: A Dog That Farts Fire (Trove)

Pemblock is a rare Corgi mount that can randomly drop in Trove while adventuring.

I have no idea when one dropped for me, but I found it in my inventory after a quick series of lairs on my Tomb Raiser.

It’s pretty darned cute. Trion seems to have a thing for corgis (given their RIFT appearances too).

Given my avatar, you might be able to guess that I have a fondness for all things canine as well.

Given my collector tendencies, you might also be able to guess that it was all I could do to hold myself back from clicking it immediately and adding it into the account-bound mount collection.

Why?

Because these things are craftable into new mounts with different cosmetic appearances, such as a pirate dog, a zombie dog, a robot dog and so on.

I scanned through the list of possibilities, and my heart settled on the Pember, because well… smokey glowy fire.

It took a great deal of patient mining of Primordial Flame – all 200 of them – especially since I’d eaten quite badly into my stockpile to make convenient shortcut/mining bombs, but when I finally hit the “craft” button and exchanged Pemblock for a Pember, I realized that I’d gotten a serious unexpected bonus.

He leaves an explosive burst of flames behind him whenever both of you jump. And in a game where you can jump 6-9 times or more, that’s one loooong fire trail in the sky.
