So 6 months ago I wrote a thread on why I could not get a Skyscale (https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/78566/why-i-will-never-be-able-to-get-a-skyscale#latest). You addressed the topic and since then I have had my mount for many months and I absolutely LOVE it! It was worth all the gold and time I spend unlocking it. It has opened up the whole game for me and I can finally get 100% map completion much easier now. Thank you!
My Springer and Griffon have been retired to a farm somewhere and they are resting. I take them out now and again so they don't get jealous of the Skyscale. :-)
