Wanderer’s Festival and Pets
I only found out about the Wanderer’s Festival very late in the beta but I’m so glad I did because I really wanted to be there for the first one on live. It just so happened that we finished the Valley of the Four Winds earlier today so I was excited to be on and get the achievement and see the hatchling pets. Cool was even there to experience it with me.
There are never many hatchlings around and I was afraid that they’d all be gone very fast as a lot of people had arrived before the festival even started. So I did a trial run with one of the spiny terrapins in the area to see how hard the capture would be. It was a bad idea because my first two pets were not doing too well. Not that I thought they would primarily due to the level and I realised it was a bad idea because it was nearing 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. So I carefully watched 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 what 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 my 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 the battle to the uncommon pet in the team.
The only thing I regret was the fact that Chen started singing when I went into the first battle so I missed pretty much all of his performance by the time I came out.
Are there any ‘must haves’ for you?
