I saw that I was fairly close to getting That’s a Lot of Pet Food for the next pet reward so I’ve been slowly working on that number. It’s also been a while since I copied my toons over, so I counted another five or six pets collected since then. Late last night I copied my Alliance and Horde priest over expecting to see the count go up. However, I was disappointed to find that the number didn’t change at all, so I set out to find some of the ones I was missing.
When I was collecting the Wild Pets of Eastern Kingdoms, the Wildhammer Gryphon Hatchling was hard to find. It was only available as part of a Twilight Highlands team and not in the wild. But back then the pet wasn’t able to be captured either. Luckily this has since been fixed.
I did try and get the Silithid Hatchling for my 400th pet but since you need a sandstorm in Tanaris, I looked for an easier alternative. That’s when I noticed another goldfish pet in the journal – Fishy is available to both Horde and Alliance as a quest reward.
Oddly enough, the achievement didn’t automatically give me the pet. Once I had logged back in though it was in my journal.
He must get tired pretty easily though as it doesn’t take much before he burrows in the ground and falls asleep. If I didn’t know better I’d say he was drooling.
