When I was looking through my achievement list tonight, I noticed that I had 8/81 (9%) under Pet battles. This was odd considering the Pet Battle System has not been implemented yet. So I went though the sections to see what it was for. The only thing I could think of was the number of pets I’ve collected so far.
There it was under the ‘Collect’ section – Littlest Pet Shop which requires the collection of 150 unique pets. According to my statistic sheet, I currently own 185 so it was an easy achievement once Patch 5.0.4 rolled around.
It was only fitting that I go back to the person who gave me the Celestial Dragon – Breanni in Dalaran. I should also mention that pets and mounts now automatically appear in your Journals so if you’re wondering why you didn’t receive any mail, that’s why.
By the way, if you’d like to read more on the Pet Battle System, you can find all the info under my top menu.
So here’s to the first of my Pet Battle milestones. Sept 25th… I’m ready, are you?
Imagine my surprise yesterday when I was in the middle of a pet battle and I saw this familiar figure in my frame of view.
I almost left the battle early just to get a closer look as she walked out of range shortly after starting.
Notice I only had two pets at the time. I still won though… :)
She only walks a short distance from the spot you see there, turning around and walking towards the end of the ravine.
This is what she has to say if you’ve done the (now obsolete) chain in Arathi Highlands:
I know you. I have you to thank for my freedom from the deepening corruption that consumed me for so many years.
Welcome to my home. Deepholm. It is a shadow of what it used to be, but still, here I can be free. I shall never take such freedom for granted after what we have endured.
I know not why you are here, but I hope you find what you seek within the stone walls of this place. Stay safe, [name].
I’m told she says this if you haven’t done the chain:
Deepholm has changed much in recent years.
It’s hardly recognizable. Still… here I am free from corruption. Free from the tainting influence of ancient gods.
It seems that sometimes your freedom must be stripped away for you to truly appreciate its value.
It’s funny how I went through a whole expansion (on multiple toons) and never saw her before. She is fairly hidden though so if you’re looking to say hi, head over to the north-western side of the Temple of Earth and look for the ravine just short of Needlerock Chasm (38.0, 44.8).
