Woe is me.
Fate has conspired to deny me a rare Irradiated Roach
My current goal is to convert my collection
of Uncommons to Rares.
While the purchased pets will take some time due to needing Battle Stones, the wild pets are doable, right?
Right off the bat, I hit a roadblock with the infamous Coral Adder
After camping for over a week, clearing out the critters, checking the rare pet pops... I finally gave up and moved on.
I figure I can blow ONE beast stone on that hard-to-get snake, right?
So, through struggle and pain, I work my way from top to bottom.
There are some rough spots (Death's Head Cockroach
es in Hyjal, Widow Spiderling
s in Duskwood), but for the most part, it's smooth sailing. Eventually, I get to the bottom of my list.
The one I've been dreading, Larva
, goes pretty well - I get a Rare within an hour of grinding Spirit Crab
(getting my original Uncommon took much longer, oddly enough)
Then I come to Irradiated Roach
Knowing it's difficult, I roll a bunch of gnomes on various servers.
Because I already have L60+ Alliance on Sentinels (RP) and The Venture Company (RP/PVP), I start there.
Nothing - so I go above-ground on my 60's and clear all the battle pets in the surround areas, including behind Gnomer.
So I roll new "Roachhunter" gnomes on Ravencrest (PvE), Ravenholdt (RP/PVP) and Twisting Nether (RP/PVP).
I also roll similar toons on Drakkari (Latin PVP) and Nemesis (Brasil PVP).
Grind some more above-ground on Sentinels and TVC. Still no joy.
Go to bed around midnight CST. Wake up again around 4am CST, try again.
Try again today at 11:30 CST.FLUXFIRE FELINE
S. Everywhere. Can't take a step without kicking one.
And my pet-hunting morality won't let me clear them out because I know other people need them.
Sentinels, above-ground? FFF.
TvC, under-ground? FFF.
Ravenholdt, under-ground? SO MANY FFF.
Ravencrest, under-ground? The mini-map was just green paws - all FFF.
So no roaches for me. Yet.
But Fluxfire Feline
? Holy hell.
If you still need one, maybe my bane can be your blessing.TL;DR
: No Irradiated Roach
for Gendou, because there are too many Fluxfire Feline
