Rule #3 – never open the package.
Following Frank Martin’s rule kept me from attaining my Chauffeured Chopper for a while. I’m not quite sure what happened or how it happened but i never received my mount for collecting 35 heirlooms. I finished off the Heirloom Hoarder achievement a few months ago but the reward eluded me until recently. Fast forward to yesterday and a quick ticket submit to a really nice Blizzard employee resulted in my new mount being mailed to me right quick. Now Mr. Martin shuffles my name Mage around town whenever i so desire. Having a level one mount almost feels like cheating.
