Hunter’s Mark

Don’t mind me, I’m just taking note of which pieces I’m missing so I know what to focus on. I never collected the Gronnstalker set (while it was current) but I did have the lookalike PVP helm which I found quite amusing at the time – particularly when people told me it creeped them out. Gronnstalker Gronnstalker’s Chestguard – Illidan Flamewaker’s Battlegear Firearrow Belt – Avengers of...

Hunter Pets of Draenor

Anxious to tame some new pets in Draenor, I copied my hunter over to Beast Lore some wildlife. I know you can just look these up on Petopia but there’s something exciting about hitting that button and seeing whether something it tameable or not. There are three new families this time round. Hydras Some of you would have been lucky enough to tame a hydra back in Wrath when the spectral ones from Shalozar were able to be tamed....

Waiting for Skarr

When I heard that hunters would have 50 stable slots, I was excited. There have been so many pets which I’ve tamed, abandoned and retamed over the years – Humar the Pridelord, Uhk’loc and Ironback were just a few of those. But it’s only now that I’ve actually looked at revisiting some of the ones I always wanted to add but never did. Skarr was one of the few pets from Cata which appealed to me but was...

This awesome bow remains as one of my most treasured possessions. It was about the highest accolade you could get at the time since it really tested your skills as a hunter. I was in a raiding guild with four other hunters and the only Ancient Petrified Leaf I ever saw went to the class lead back then. It was quite some time before I saw another one as a few of us went in to farm one for my toon. Having a 50% chance to drop from...

The Art of Dinomancy

After seeing a few hunters with Direhorns over the last couple of days, I was quite excited about adding one to my stable. The question was where to get one? First you must head to the Isle of Bones, just above Kun-Lai Summit. You’ll have to fly over eel-infested waters, err… a short distance of fatigued water to find yourself on the shore of the Isle. If you head straight for the middle of the landmass, you’ll find...

Strike Me Rare

Yesterday I was curious to see how much of the AQ40 set I could pick up after farming the Classic Pets recently, so I looked up the Striker’s Garb and realised I had all the BOP items, idols and scarabs between my bags and the Guild bank. It turns out I still needed the belt and gloves so I killed my way up to the end (short of two optionals). Unfortunately, neither dropped but I happened to have a couple of substitutes in my...
