New Acquisitions

Postby Gráinne » August 29th, 2016, 10:43 pm

I thought it would be nice to natter about our new acquisitions.

I spent most of the evening/morning watching my screen not-move, and I am now very tired.

I picked up the new Pet Charm pets in Dalaran:

H/H Alarm-o-Bot
P/S Fel Piglet
P/S Nightwatch Swooper
H/B Plump Jelly
H/P Autumnal Sproutling
H/S River Calf

I also tamed

S/B and B/B Black-Footed Fox Kit
H/B and H/P Spiketail Beaver - I had a B/B as well, but must have released it in error.
I battled maybe a couple of dozen, and these were the only breeds I saw for them.

The WarcraftPets page doesn't have a H/P breed for the Spiketail Beaver yet. As a Blue 25, it's

So far, I have all the charm pets and one of the Underbelly Eye pets (the Sewer Jelly). I also pet battled for charms and managed to get myself a rare Blind Rat.

I've captured a Long-Eared Owl but it's only common at the moment; I spent most of yesterday night hunting for a Dust Bunny and having no luck with the camp. I've only recently started battling (other than the Underbelly fights).

Add a poor Slithering Brownscale to the list.

Hi,

(updated 09/03/2016)

Very disappointing ... I ended up getting "started" in one zone for my DH, and have not seen many pets. I have a feeling that we should lay off a few zones, due to levels.

Lists are now available.

Ed: (Cleaned up later) Pets are showing up way much more than they were on the first day ... I checked my first zone by comparison, and I had none that first day, and yesterday, I saw a lot of pets there. Something might have been changed/updated since, as now they are available a lot more.

One note, though, is that I have not seen a single RARE as yet, though I used a Blue Rock to upgrade a S/S Fox ... couldn't resist that one! In general, gosh ... is it possible to find/get LESS Kelp Scuttlers and Grizzly Squirrels in RARE form?

I have a feeling that we should lay off a few zones, if we want to get a few pets ... as it looks like some zones have stuff to get and others don't?

Is it possible for someone to help with a list, so I can choose a better area? The first one AZ something or other, has shown me not a single anything

They all have new pets.

WarcraftPets has you covered for zone pets, for example:

I'm spending most of my time on wild pet collecting instead of getting on with serious work here. :)

I can not complete a single character, and can not turn in the quests at the "Hall" that doesn't exist, and there are no labels for it. My mage is stuck, at this time! My DH is stuck ... and I have given up on this expansion as of right now, as there is no support and attention to details and it has become too frustrating. Trying to get help arriving at the "Mage Hall" is like pulling teeth on an elephant on the chats and everyone blaming everything from your sister to your mom, to _____ and ________ (no kidding!). I sure hope the Pet situation is not that bad ... but as of right now, DH at 101, and stuck ... can't get past the weapon and frustrated with the bad information and quest dialogues that are preventing a continuation of play.)

I don't know about DH, but my mage has been fine to progress, and the launch was smoother than I've seen before. I'm happy to gripe all day about the new animations/models, the ability amputations, and other design directions, but I think Blizzard's execution so far has been near-flawless, and I'm enjoying myself just wandering around, capturing pets, and killing random things. I really should get my second and third artefacts and figure out where my professions rank-ups are, but that can wait as long as I'm enjoying myself. ;)

I saw a Stormstruck Beaver.

There was a mob beside it.

Verry carefully I used only single-target attacks on the mob.

I forgot I had my Doom trinket equipped, which deals AoE damage. :(

Thanks a big bunch ... was looking for this, but being half blind (3 surg's on right eye), made it really hard to find a decent listing, and this one is now the best I have seen, and the only one, mind you!

Haven't bagged a Blue yet, but fought a whole bunch of Poors, Commons and a couple of Uncommons. Hoping to find a blue in the midst and using a level 22 or 23 in the middle to help bring them up to 25.

Got my S/S Rose Taipan!

I spent far too much time looking for this. I must have tried at least 30 of them before I came across an S/S.

For battling, the Rose Taipan is effectively identical to the Death Adder Hatchling. The stats are the same. The Taipan replaces Burrow with Paralyzing Venom, but with Blinding Poison as the other choice in that slot, there are not many cases where you will care.

Anyone who wanted to try a DAH for PvP but never had the luck or gold can now roll their own. Since the nerf, it's not the predator that it was, but with the 341 speed, it can still surprise people. :)

I've now got one of every wild pet other than Fedgling Kingfeather, Hog-Nosed Bat, Vicious Broodling, and Thornclaw Broodling. At level 106 (and most of it from battling pets and exploring) that's not a bad haul. Got quite a few of them as rare as well.

I was lucky as hell: my very first Stormstruck Beaver was a rare one, making my expected use of a stone unnecessary. I did use one on my Dust Bunny, though. I don't want to steal the rug out from under other people who might want the chance to get them.

And just last night, I simultaneously dinged level 107, and Broken Isles Safari, and obtained my Rescued Fawn. The Suramar pets are a pain in the *BUTT* to get when you're not level 110; I don't suggest trying it unless you've got a high-level friend, are chasing questers around, or are willing to take a lot of deaths to find them (guilty).

::slightly guilty::
Wasn't feeling well yesterday, so I stayed home to get some rest. Ended up playing WOW.

My Horde Paladin made 104 and ended up with all but 3 of the Highmountain pets - Baby Elderhorn (still need more rep), Crispin, and Felspider - still haven't found yet. I even remembered to get Zoom while I was in the right area and it only took 2 tries.

Admittedly, I was even catching poor and common versions, but also managed to catch 2 at Uncommon and 2 at Rare, so I won't complain that I still have more catching in Highmountain to do. Afterall, I still have 5 alts at 100 and a 100 boost not yet used

I stockpiled charms, so only have one of those left to get from that vendor, got one from the other new dalaran vendor and a few wild ones. My stones stockpile has helped with level upgrading to rares - that dead time at the end of WoD had its uses.

So far I;ve got

Alarm-o-bot
Autumnal Sproutling
Celestial Calf
Coastal Sandpiper
Fel Piglet
Gleamhoof Fawn
PLump Jelly
Slithering Brownscale
Vale flitter

So I got Zoom, and ... he keeps multiplying in my pet journal! Does that happen for anyone else? Is he Mr. Bigglesworth 2?
And all the Eldritch Manafiends and Northern Hawk Owls I found were rare, but the servers have restarted at least 20 times since so maybe it was a bug and is fixed.

Yea, I have 3 Zooms now in my journal. This bug was happening on Beta as well.

I don't have the heart to release 2! :(

I only have one of each, but both were rare right off the bat for me, too.

Possible this is related to the 'uncommon only' bug we had on several creatures in Pandaria and Cataclysm.

Was going to suggest the same thing ... this zone is nasty if you are trying to farm pets and not high enough to handle the mobs.

What's worse is that the Suramar-only mobs, AKA the spiders, are *all* in very dangerous areas. Even at level 110, it's not fun to run around. I was fortunate that my first Vicious Broodling was a rare; I'm not looking forward to trying to farm up another one.

Maybe there's a lucky break, and all of them are rare again. ;)

I have done this quest once and found out last night that I had three Zooms.

I finished out Broken Isles Safari with all but one breed I want. Got most all the easy ones out of the way and now for the ones that require work. I need about an hour or so of fishing to get the sting ray pup and start doing archaeology or farm for eye of inquisition. Suramar quest line and the scenario pet are also on my to do. This xpac is definitely keeping me busy.
