The rideable snails seem to be extremely popular with WoW: Dragonflight developers. After they already brought the red, orange and yellow lava snail into play, patch 10.0.7 is followed by the blue one.
After we were allowed to ride a snail for the first time in Shadowlands, the lava snails followed as special mounts with WoW: Dragonflight. These are very popular among players. And that’s despite the fact that we hardly ever use them at the moment. As is well known, we almost exclusively use our four new dragons on the Dragon Islands, since these are unlocked for dragon riding.
However, the upcoming patch 10.0.7 will further increase the collection of lava snails. After the red (tank bludger), the orange (magma cottage) and the yellow (Aggressive world snail) we welcome the blue lava snail in the upcoming update: PH Lava Snail Blue.
50 Slime for a Lava Snail
If you want the blue lava snail, you have to deal with the new storm events in the upcoming update. Because you can there Leftover Elemental Slime capture. Combine 50 of these Leftover Elemental Slimethen it easily becomes the blue lava snail.
However, the new storm events will only take place on the Forbidden Island, the new endgame area in the upcoming patch. You mess with powerful primalists and have to put them in their place. But you get a maximum of one handful of Leftover Elemental Slime per event. For the blue lava snail you have to complete more than ten events.
How do you like that the WoW developers are bringing so many mounts into the game that we currently don’t use at all or hardly at all? Is that still a good thing, since we will eventually mothball our riding dragons again, or should the developers concentrate on the dragons – with the ulterior motive of maybe keeping them in future expansions?
