Re: Hunting

Main thing I tried to avoid was slaughtering all the wild pets in sight when I couldn't find a rare, then noticing other players around that might have been looking for one of any quality. In Draenor, in fact, Blizzard usually wouldn't let you kill a wild pet any way except in pet battle. That chang...

Re: Revolt against new class hall pets!!

It is a bit strange to see the list of pet owners in Draka, for example, and I am listed fairly high, with the lowest number of total pets all told. In some ways, it makes me fell like I am going to be stuck, come 4K or something like it, since there is little chance that I can get more pets that w...

Re: Revolt against new class hall pets!!

this whole thing has me totally daunted. I dislike any sort of pvp, and really, really don't like dungeons and raids. I am 73 years old. and basically have lost interest in pet collecting .... while some of the questing has been pleasurable, I dislike the entire concept of legions long winded level...

Re: Revolt against new class hall pets!!

Ack if they do that (make pets as heroic or mythic raid rewards) then I'm screwed. Going to have to pay for a carry lol. Now that Lagan is no longer cageable, there's already a Mythic Dungeon pet. As I can hardly make it through a normal dungeon, another pet I'll never have. With him and the steadi...

Re: Revolt against new class hall pets!!

There is a rather nice benefit to WoW's current pet policies. As gotta-catch-'em-all becomes even more impossible for lot of us, I've stopped blowing 50 or 60 bucks (Real Money) on another Blizzard game that I'd probably never play just to get a WoW pet. And not even tempted anymore to look at EBay ...

Re: Over-use of comps in PVP battles killing interest

We're dealing with human nature here, and anyone that hasn't turned off Trade Chat becomes quickly aware that there's awful lot of jerks playing this game. There are folks who aren't into pet battles for the intellectual challenge, they're either chasing some achievement or get off on high win rate ...

Re: Tips for a return player?

I'd recommend buying Boon of the Zookeeper from Draemus at the Magical Menagerie in Dalaran. This shoulder enchant gives occasional pile of pet supplies, including pet charms, when you loot kills. Lio the Lioness at same shop is vendor that takes these charms for a variety of useful pet stuff. Marke...

Re: Any honor grinding tips for people who hate PVP?

Operation: Murloc Freedom not up for me this evening so checked it out. The good part is that you don't get ganked repeatedly, bad part is there are no jars either sitting around or dropping from Naga kills. Apparently they do only happen during the PvP WQ.

They've messed with Brawler's Guild

Found my way back there (it's been a while) so I could get the new wonderfully-named pet from the Quartermaster. Wouldn't sell it to me, is redded out. Also wouldn't sell Clock'em, which I've had for couple years from reaching Brawler level 4. Since new Grommling only needs Brawler 3, something is m...

In the past the Anniversary pets have been one-time-only so you're probably out of luck.

Haven't had any trouble using carry pet / Nexus Whelpling / Emerald Proto-Whelp so long as the starter carry pet has enough health to handle the annoying Cyclone that the flyer always uses. This team has worked for over 40 battles, none of which has yet gotten me the Albino Buzzard. Two Flawless Fly...

Re: Stormstruck Beaver

Apparently the Kingfeathers have become quite common. Hadn't heard that Blizzard had adjusted the Beavers too, had found those more work than the Kingfeathers back when the birds took a while to spawn.

Re: Need advice on powerlvling pets to 25

One reason there's a scarcity of guides to powerleveling is that yeah, there are shortcuts, but if you have a lot of pets it's going to take time. And potentially be kinda boring. I make it a bit more productive by letting a non-maxxed alt do it, it's decent XP for them too. And if you're doing Squi...

Re: Looking for Arcane Eye ? .. bad news

It's the Restless Shadelings that mass spawn at midnight server time. The Eyes used to show up occasionally throughout the day. Probably still do, but get battled or offed pretty quickly.

Re: Looking for Arcane Eye ? .. bad news

Just checked out Karazhan with a level 79 mage, same crowd of 110's hanging out there and no Arcane Eyes. Only difference I could see is that the Dreadwing bats were now scaled down to 79.
