Re: Arena Tourny 2013 - which pet will we get?

Ditto what Gromagrim said ... I'm kinda glad it gives me the chance to fill in the hole in the Pokedex, rather than add a new pet.

Re: Do we know when the *end* of summer is?

And they hotfixed the spawn rate to be "greatly increased" as of today, too (Of course my even more die-hard than me pet collectin' girlfriend snagged one last night, just before that :p). Cool, less worried. Now, if I can only go back and tell Winter/Spring time me to go and get the Snowy Owl befor...

Do we know when the *end* of summer is?

I'm taking a "wait til it dies down" approach to Quraji (especially since i didn't start pet collecting to spring, meaning I don't have the Winter pet and won't be a Zookeeper until December :cry:), but with only 6 potential spawn spots, 5 hour respawn ... I'm concerned how long it would take for it...

Re: List of pets most people level to 25

First one I leveled was my Szechaun Chicken, since I used him to help level others near Two Moons. If I had the info of today when I did that, I'd first level Eternal Strider and Spirit Crab, so I could work on Nishi and Aki, respectively. The two of them do most of the work by themselves in those f...

Re: Leveling Preferences

I try to use the tamers across one day to push one pet 1 - 25. Aki is the first stop, and you can use a level 1 there, so she gets the pet to 11 ... then Nishi gets the pet to 15, and that's usually high enough to survive the potential damage the carry pet takes in the other fights. Depending on wha...

Lil Ragnaros submerges guarantees I switch in my Water Waveling (Tidal Wave clears out the sons and does some back row damage).

Re: Arena Pass 2013 (US)

OK, so I have to pay 20 bucks, and convince two other people to also pay 20 bucks, and then make sure to coordinate enough of our time so that we can participate in 50 fights where I'm almost assuredly going to lose approximately 43 of them?

Thank goodness for this forum.

What you think is "obvious" isn't always obvious (or even agreed upon) to others. Therefore, you can't do anything.

I've had a lot of draws, they drive me nuts .. but admittedly, more of them are my "fault" than my opponents.

Re: Crocks in the city

I got my second Chuck a couple of weeks ago, and I have all 4 learned. So, you can get more than one. I have to ask though... Why does everyone want Chuck? I prefer Snarly's breed. I assume its the name, also i think he looks the best of the set. And not all pet collectors care much about the pet b...

Switching sides in the Argent Tournament

As I am now a few days away from being a Champion of the final Horde city in the Argent Tournament, I went back to find something I thought I saw once before, but cannot find now ... how do I start doing the Alliance cities? I remember reading that you have to start at the beginning, rather than at ...

Re: Daily Pet Supply Bags

The only stat I know is months and months and months of bags and zero Porcupettes. :evil: It's been months since I've gotten a porcupette. I've gotten 3 fire elmentals, 1 earth and 2 water since the patch though. And, of course, a lot of stones. I average probably 1 a day from bags. 2 Fire, 2 Wind,...

Re: Crocks in the city

One of the accounts had all four learned before this sample; the other account learned the 3 pets from the first time. We learned the dupes so we could cage them and sell 'em on Shadowmoon as part of our Thundering/Lil Tarcegosa efforts with Deal With It. :)

Re: Do you feel certain moves miss more?

I have had an 80% hit attack miss 3 times out of 4. Soooo frustrating. I also get the feeling that these strings of unusually bad luck stick in the mind more than the usual RNG. So when the same thing happens 2 weeks later, we all go "this is just a huge pile of steaming smelly stuff - ermergerd !!...

Re: Best combo of pets to kill the most Bag dropping trainer

I found that Emerald Proto-Whelp was starting to become my best "catch all" guy to power through any fights. As long as you pay attention to the timing of Emerald Dream (or switch slot 2 to Ancient Blessing if it's a fight that needs Proto-Strike )), he could force a win against any trainer/tamer. S...

Re: Crocks in the city

I believe they do stop coming once you have them. Way way back when they bumped up the chance, I stopped getting duplicates. I was also fishing for them on multiple toons, so I had a decent size sample set as far as checking the chance of getting one. Since pets are now acct wide, I'd imagine you c...
