Fabled Beasts daily possibly being broken up?

Postby Wain » March 28th, 2013, 2:30 am

I posted this on Petopia as well, but it's more fitting here.

It's possible they're finally going to split up the Fabled Beasts daily (for the "red panda" minipets) into more reasonable chunks. 5.3 has three new quests added, with 3-4 of the beast challenges for each:
Beasts of Fable Book I
Beasts of Fable Book II
Beasts of Fable Book III

Cross fingers. Because the current single enormous daily is pretty horrendous.

That would be nice. The amount of time to do it with such little reward now is kind of a burnout.

I think many of us suggested this solution to a rather cumbersome daily. If it makes live, it's a nice concession of them to make. I think this is how the daily should have been implemented.

It didn't help that I did the daily for the first 3 weeks and only saw Snowy Pandas (six in total!), before getting Sunfur and Mountain in two glorious back-to-back bags :p

I've only done the daily once since then, I have it in my log and if I happen to be near a Fabled beast I'll defeat it, I only go out of my way once I have 2-3 left to finish the daily.

If this goes live, I'll definitely start focussing on them again. Well done Mumper!

Honestly, I really hope that this change goes live well before 5.3. I'm so sick to travel the whole Pandaria every single day just because Snowy Panda refuses to drop!

A very welcome change if it's implemented!

I wonder if all the dailies will be offered each day, or if they will be on a random rotation and you'll only need to fight 3 per day to receive the daily bag? If it's the former example, will each portion reward a bag? Two extra BoF daily bags each day? Hmm... I'm leaning towards 'yes please' :P

It would be most awesome if you could do all three every day, got a bag from each and the droprate for pets and stones stayed the same.
Well, one can dream... ;)

I'm serious about getting six in a row, and prices on my server had dropped below 2k. If you're on EU realms, come see me :p

It really does need something doing to it. Right now it's a huge amount of effort for a reward that's often the same junk you get from a single trainer battle.

Am I the only one who does this quest for the coins? I love being able to do this daily and nothing else and get my 90 coins a week or maybe there is better ways to get coins from pet battles?

I have found that doing the Master Pet Tamers dailies is much more profitable. You still get lots of coins, you can level pets in the process and you will end up with more stones at the end of the day. At least on my server selling the pandas is no longer profitable, so I have completely stopped doing the Fabled Beasts dailies.

Hmm. I'll still feel compelled to do every fabled beast every day as it stands, but at least I'll get 3 bags instead of 1...

Pacer: I have over 2500 lesser charms, and ear nmany more than 90 per week. I'm looking forawrd to currency exchange when next expansion hits :p

Well, in the patch notes I saw this: "Players can now choose to do any or all of the chapters each day."

So it looks like dreams can come true!
