Pet Master Yoda

My what a busy week in Pet Battles. After my Pet Pro Crew and Rookie Pet Mob achievements, I’ve decided to go back and upgrade some of my poor quality pets in my journal. The other day I managed to upgrade two with a rare Stunted Yeti and Spotted Bell Frog.

Then while battling some lizards in Thousand Needles, I did come across something rather peculiar. Notice the main pet in view there? At first I was excited as the lizard was an upgrade to the one I had but the Ancona Chicken was an odd choice for a secondary pet. It’s another one of those buggy pets which shouldn’t be included since they’re not able to be captured.


Dangling carrotTo confirm this, I battled other pets in the vicinity until I came across another one. As I suspected, this chicken was a tease but it would have been a nice upgrade to the level 1 I had in my journal already (having bought him during vanilla in the Shimmering Flats).

But for those who don’t have an Ancona Chicken yet, you can still buy one from the vendor below. You might just need to chase him down first :P OK there are two easier ways to talk to him. His a lot ‘pluckier’ than the rabbit girl in the Alliance starting zone but you can either emote /chicken at him or kill the caster that has him polymorphed.



Just head to the ridge between Thousand Needles and Tanaris (just past the camp of pirates and ships) until you spot these blue runes.

One of my pet highlights for the week came from Matty while doing my usual round of Pet Battle Tamers. Note her name has been garbled to protect her innocence identity.

Pet Master Yoda

Sometimes I feel like a Pet Yoda but it’s such a nice compliment to be asked my advice about something I’ve been doing since April. Wow, has it almost been a year already?

All I can say is bring on 5.2. Oh and Jeremy, I’ll be seeing you next month – you can bet your Darkmoon Eye on that!

  1. You were a HUGE help, and much, much cuter than Obi Wan…! I actually have an epic tale about that last battle, and absolutely love my earth spirit pet – when it was all said and done, for my stubborn, horned little shaman, earth-bound was the perfect choice – thank you Jedi Master!

    • Well done! I plan on levelling mine all up eventually. Glad you like the thundering one so much. Ok, now I’m reminded of this WOW/Star Wars video a friend of mine did a while ago (I even play one of the council members) :)

  2. The eye is a lie. That is all. I think he hangs out with Minfernal laughing at us and telling stories about how they watch us trying to get them.
