Today is “knock out a quick blog post” day. Mostly so that I have some time left to play games.
Thus I’m indulging in the art of the cheat post via screenshot!
Have I mentioned I like fire?
I’m pretty partial to any fiery volcanic landscapes. The sky and general tint of the environment changes in Trove in the Dragonfire Peaks, including fiery ash drifting in the breeze. My mount helps along the ambience with its own fiery effects.
Fireheart Rise in GW2 also has its own fiery rain environmental effects. I’m doubly fond of the place for being set in Ascalon, with the cozy familiar autumn grassy landscapes of the first game, now extra charr-ified.
Bonus: My guardian tries his best warrior elite spec impersonation. (Hinted to be Berserker = Torch, apparently.)
Hooray for marching to the beat of my own fiery legendary drum and making Rodgort first before everyone else decides they want one too?

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.
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.
