Late last night I logged back in to the beta to do a bit of pet battling as I was having some trouble beating the Grand Master of Outland. As soon as I left our City, I noticed an Alliance character hovering in the air. When I highlighted their name it was none-other than Euphyley. I waved, but she seemed to be AFK so I headed off into another zone.
Reaching the gate entrance into the Vale, I saw I had a dig there so I paused for a few minutes. In the meantime, I decided to send Euphy a quick tweet:
So I headed back for a quick photo opportunity. It was pretty exciting as it’s the first blogger I’ve found on the beta. It’s just unfortunate that we couldn’t communicate better other than emoting to one another and tweeting back and forth. The spot turned out to be a pretty blinding one so we focused on other things.
I was trying out my new Battling costume at the time (which Euphy admired) so she did the next best thing…
I took the opportunity to show her my newly acquired toy from earlier. His emotes proved quite funny.
Before riding off into the sunset, I took special notice of Euphy’s pet. It’s one of the new unique hunter trackable pets coming in Mists. Another pink pet for her stable :P
One of the rare Mogu artifacts which converts to an Anatomical Dummy when completed. The item is only useable in Pandaria with a 1hr CD.
Use: Summon an Anatomical Dummy at target location for 5min. The punching bag acts as a target dummy while it persists.
He makes some rather interesting emotes when you use him as a target dummy :)
Ow. That really hurts. Not.
That doesn’t even tickle.
Bring it on, jerk.
You’re not very good at this torture thing.
Is that supposed to hurt?
You want a piece of me?
Oooh. Mr Mean Mogu.
I’m so scared.
I had a dig in the Valley of the Four Winds yesterday, in a spot I knew one of the new Champions spawn, although I hadn’t seen it yet. I thought it would be quite funny if it spawned just as I was digging. Guess what, it did!
So I thought I’d take a pic for my collection and let someone else kill it. But then I thought, what the hell and attacked it. As usual, he didn’t drop anything other than a piece of armour so I continued digging and about a minute later, I finished my latest rare artifact.
I thought it only natural that I place him on the spot the rare spawned :P
Once you complete the Battle Pet Tamers – Kalimdor or Battle Pet Tamers – Eastern Kingdoms chains, you’ll be eligible to pick up the next tier of Battles for Outland, although the fights are quite buggy at the moment, on the most part, they are still doable.
There are four Master Pet Tamers to defeat.

Morulu The Elder <Master Pet Tamer>

Completing this chain, opens up the quest to defeat the Grand Master of Outland.
Bloodknight Antari <Grand Master Pet Tamer>
Location – Shadowmoon Valley – right next to Magma Fields
Level 24 Elite Pets – Arcanus (Magic), Netherbite (Dragonkin) and Jadefire (Elemental)
This is a very tough battle atm since I don’t have strong enough pets to beat them yet. With the new feature of weakened pets over a certain level, it’s a real pain to level pets from 20 and up.
