As soon as I logged in yesterday, I knew what I wanted to do. I started amending my Pandaren Spirit Tamer guide as I was going through the motions myself. When I completed the quest I ended up picking the water spirit – thinking back on the Under the Sea post I had just written. It was a toss-up between the air and earth for a bit as I’m a Taurus – one of the earth signs. A friend and I used to joke that I would look good rolling around in the dirt and she would look good on fire according to our Astrological elements.
Defeating all four of the Panderen Spirits was a little tougher than I thought. When you start the fight you have no idea about their team make-up (unless you’ve done some research), so I went in with my usual knock-out team. Once I saw who I was up against, I made some changes to my group and went in again.
After collecting my cute little pet, I headed out to the other three Spirit Tamers and fought them again. In hindsight, I probably should have picked the one that gave me the most trouble so I wouldn’t have to keep fighting that one day after day for the pet – in this case, the Thundering one. But alas, my choice had been made and I’ll be doing the remaining three battles until I get all four rewards.
A little later, I headed out to AQ to see if I could snag any of the pets there. I skipped the bosses I could like the three bugs but it seems they still have a huge aggro range. Wouldn’t you know that the dresses I spent so much time and effort farming both dropped for me again… maybe I can wear them when my other ones are at the cleaners.
I do love that you can now go into these places without having to be in a group or raid but after soloing six of the relevant bosses yesterday in four of the raids, I came out with…. nothing. A sad day for farming indeed but I guess it’s just the first day and should probably go in with some alts to try my luck.
After the old raids, I headed out to find a few of the others around the place. Picking up the ones in Coldarra and Sholazar Basin. I didn’t have much luck with the harpy or infinite dragon though.
After flying around Northrend though, I did notice something strange…
43 years?? Oh Blizzard, you make me laugh sometimes…
