Just found this gem this morning.
If you know me well you wouldn’t be surprised to read that I’ve been known to camp a beast for days or for several straight hours. Lupos in Duskwood is one that comes to mind, as well as King Krush back in Northrend. There are still some I have yet to see though; like the blue and green scorpid and 2 flying rares in Deepholm. Two group rares have also eluded me so far but it’s not just about the loot for me. It’s about the tame, and most importantly – the shot. There’s nothing like an epic action shot to capture the uniqueness of a mob that is only in the game for periods at a time.
The following guide encompasses a lot of information I have in my head to date, but will give the reader some information they may be lacking in terms of location or achievement. So for those looking for something in particular; this may just be the guide you’ve been waiting for – Beyond Bloody Rare: A Guide to all Rares
So it’s been an effort getting the Guild to Rank 4 and I don’t know how many more dailies I can do. The game is getting quite depressing lately as I’m not feeling too valued as a player atm. I’m been thinking a lot lately about what I might do in terms of the game. I’ve spoken to some about this already but there are pros and cons to any decision I make. Maybe the patch will give me something more interesting to do; at least on my main.
This is an old Dark Legacy comic which Coolidge showed me. I must say, I thought it was hilarious. The only odd thing about it was the fact that he thinks I’m like the hooded figure. Just because I like sparkles?
Anyway, enjoy :)
If you were around as a Horde player in vanilla, this lion used to be pretty tricky to tame or even see if you were a hunter looking to tame this beauty – or even just to do the quest.
The only other cat to share this skin was Echeyakee in The Barrens. Both the result of quest summons. The former was the result of a quest asking you to slay Shy-Rotam (an elite) in Winterspring. Once she gets to ~50%, her mate spawns. Back in the day this used to be a group quest since he had an annoying AoE fear ability. The other thing was that once Shy-Rotam was killed, Sian-Rotam would despawn so a co-ordinated gp would be required.
The hardest thing was not necessarily killing Shy-Rotam for the quest but farming the meat from other cats – used to lure Shy-Rotam in the first place. This one piece of quest meat had a pretty poor drop rate and if you failed the first time in completing the quest, you had another farming session to look forward to.
Since Blizzard has made things so easy to level now, it appears you don’t even need to farm the meat any more. From what I’ve noticed lately, you’ll generally find Shy-Rotam casually hanging around her rock.
Herbing on my Druid yesterday, I managed to see Sian-Rotam peacefully sleeping not to far from his mate under Frostsaber Rock. The spawn rate doesn’t seem to be too long either as I managed to see him again a few hours later that night.
