Champion Playtime

Late last night I completed my Taming Northrend achievement by defeating Major Payne, the Grand Master of the continent. Having already defeated Aki the Chosen, the Grand Master of Pandaria on the beta, I wasn’t in as much of a rush to do the Pet Battling thing on live. But after my latest hurdle with Major Payne, I was eager to try the next series of Pet Battle Tamers for Cataclysm – who also weren’t available on the beta.


Today I finally managed to get my Crate of Kidnapped Puppies from one of the rares in Kun-Lai Summit, one of the few things I really wanted on the beta but the item never dropped.

So I tried them out on one of the rares in the Vale… have you had a good look at them before?

Not only does one have a bow on it’s head, reminding me of Huggalon the Heart Breaker, but the other one has a pirate hat… how cute is that?

The Bottled Tornado which drops from Kal’tik in the Vale was something I had in my bag for a while but never tried before now.

The highlight of my day came when Cool and I killed Nalash again and my pet finally dropped :D

Aqua Strider

According to my Armoury page, this brings me up to 492 pets but with the changes to our Pet Journal increasing from a maximum of 500 to 650, this will be a welcome change for sure :P

Thx to Cool for his continued assistance (letting me know both these rares were up) <3 As it stands now, I have 18 Champions left to kill before I get my Glorious! achievement.

By the way, two people have told me that they are no longer receiving my blog emails so if you’re in the same boat, let me know so we can troubleshoot the issue.
