As part of Navi’s 10 Days of Pet Battles:
Day 8: What is the stupidest thing(s) you have ever done in a pet battle?
Just after I started pet battling on the beta and had fought quite a few in Durotar, I headed over to The Barrens to see what I could find. I engaged the first one I saw which was a bad move as my corehound was level four and I had selected a level 9 to battle. It didn’t end well… LOL!
Then after heading back to Org to hand in a couple of quests, I decided to see what the ‘Find Battle’ feature was about. I was hoping it would be like The Last Relic of Argus and teleport me to some random critter or something but that was just wishful thinking. I was teleported right outside Org to find my level 5 corehound in a battle with a level 13 pet. OUCH! The odd thing was I died after 2secs which seemed weird but later found it was due to a world glitch where you could just fall through the earth. Even more odd was the fact that the battle was still going so I just released, rezzed and continued fighting critters the old fashioned way, heading over to Mulgore to see what they had to offer.
Other silly things included the usual like starting battles with dead pets, the wrong type, using an ability which crit the pet I was trying capture (before my turnip) or killing a pet I wanted to capture since I was talking to someone or watching TV at the time.
