Wanderer’s Festival and Pets

I only found out about the Wanderer’s Festival very late in the beta but I really wanted to be there for the first one on live. We happened to finish the Valley of the Four Winds earlier in the day so I was excited to be on to get the achievement and see the hatchlings. Cool was even there to experience it with me.

There are never many hatchlings around so I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to get one as a lot of people had arrived before the festival had even started. I ended up doing a trial run with one of the spiny terrapins in the area to see how hard the capture would be. My first two pets didn’t go too well because they were a little low for the zone and I realised it was a bad idea as it was getting really close to 9pm as my battle ended.

I was worried that my pet rez would not be up in time for the 8min CD but as I came out of the match I had a 4min wait instead. I kept a close eye on the time and stayed relatively close to the hatchling while I filled in the time with some fishing. As I counted down the last minute, I engaged the hatchling and set out to capture it – no matter the quality. It turned out to be a common one but I was amazed to capture it before my first pet died. Unfortunately, the second pet in the opposing team finished off my first and second so I was worried about my third pet dying and losing my caged one in the process.

Luckily my frog kicked ass and I managed to win. :D Just check out the levels and state of my pets when the whole thing was over.

By the time I came out of the battle, everyone had left except for a lone fisherwoman. I noticed another festival hatchling close by so I attempted another capture. It turned out to be another common variety but sadly I lost to the uncommon pet in their team.

The only thing I regret was missing out on Chen’s ballad when I went into my first battle so I missed out on his whole performance.

On a side note, I’ve also been trying a number of Pet Battle addons over the last few days and there are a few that I love right now – PetJournal Enhanced, BattlePetCount and PetBattleQualityGlow.

Are there any ‘must haves’ for you?

  1. Thanks for the reminder. It’s a good thing you’re hours and hours ahead of me or I would have forgotten about this.

  2. Alas, my pet battle team is too wimpy to get the little turtle pets this week. Maybe next week. I got the achievement though!!

  3. Okay, I give up. Where do you get PetBattleCount? Searches only bring my back here. My pets need all the support they can get!
