Snowy Owl

Postby Elleria » November 1st, 2013, 7:57 am

Has there been any sightings of the Snowy Owl, or information about when it's likely to begin spawning?

I believe it starts spawning between 0300-0900 EST today.

Today's a big pet day, skeleton pet + zookeeper title for those of us who missed last winter ( I didn't start battle pet collecting until April).

I haven't logged in yet this morning but I've seen numerous posts stating that Nov 1 is the start of "Winter" in the wowiverse.

The Snowy Owl will start spawning once the Northern Hemisphere Winter Solstice starts (December 21). We'll have to wait a little longer before seeing these in Winterspring.

When MoP first came out, the owl originally spawned early, but has since been fixed to follow the "real world" seasons.

GAH!!

Why must my Zookeeper Title be a Christmas present?!

BOO!!

On the upside, I managed to get about 14 Macabre Marionettes today so hopefully I can make some good trades for people who aren't able to do the event this weekend :)

....except 21/12 is not when "real world" says winter starts..

Real World calenders say that winter start 1/12... Solstice is still close to that date, but only by 10 days..
However,it was the same issue with the Quraji Guardling.. It also spawned 21 days after summer started..

I have to ask what real world calender says that? Every calender I have ever seen says winter solostice is 12/21 and summer solistce is 6/21.

You're talking about summer/winter solstice, I'm talking about when summer/winter starts.. Not the same thing...
That's why I say that solstice is only 10 days closer to winter star than 1/11 is... 1/11 to 1/12 = 30 days. 1/12 to 21/12 = 20 days.. 30-20=10 days difference..

Spring: March, April, May
Summer: June, July, August
Autumn: September, October, November
Winter: December, January, February

Every child knows this.. It's on every calender, and you are taught it in schools....... and then I don't care what people "down under" says.. ;)

Winter starts in the real world on the solstice, not December 1st. While you might try to simplify it that way in your head, winter is still about 3 weeks away on December 1st.

No idea where you live, but I am not "down under" and my North American calendar, like any other I have ever seen, says that winter begins on December 21. The Farmer's Almanac also shows the same thing (again, for North America) http://www.almanac.com/content/first-day-seasons

Ahh I see you are from Denmark. Looking into it a bit more we are both right in respect to our countries. Most of the world reconizes the Winter Solstice (Dec. 21st) as the official first day of Winter but by Denmarks calender the offical first day of winter is Dec 1st. And with Blizzard being a US based company they go by North Americas offical first day of winter.

Learn something new every day :)

In case you didnt know, the Blossoming Ancient changes colours with the season and will go "white" when it is officially Winter in-game. It's a great way to follow seasonal pets ^^

I feel your pain. I started battling the week after it went into hibernation. On the plus side I finally got my Minfernal (renamed, "I am real") so at least the last pet to capture will be an easy one.
