A while ago, I was doing Terrace LFR and saw this frigging huge grub in the raid. A little after that, while checking out the AH, I saw another one. I had asked both hunters where they came from but I didn’t get an answer – although the guy in the AH was AFK. The first time I saw anything about this pet was on Kalliope’s blog. Sometime later, I saw Euphy’s post on the green version from Silithus which Tome and Matty both tamed.
Last night, I finally logged onto my Hunter to tame this colourful beast. All you need to do is head to the Dread Wastes and attack one of the infected wildlife. You may recall the daily where you need to do this but the daily isn’t required to get the Amber Parasites to spawn. In my case, I had to get the moths health very low before anything happened.
Be aware that you need to have a BM spec due to their exotic nature and will need to tame this guy before 5.2 hits as they will soon be untameable.
It’s a little ironic that the one pet I featured the most (during the beta) ended up being the one I’ve tamed last. I first wrote about the Pandarian Hunter Pets which WoW Insider were kind enough to link to on twitter. Over the course of the beta, the quilen model went through a few remodelling changes which were illustrated in my Evolution of the Quilen post.
Portent may be found in several different colours, much like Madexx in Uldum. The first one I found was the blue version which looks very striking. I picked up his Dusty Tracks towards the end of his path just before Bin-Jai the Butcher in the western part of the Vale of Endless Blossoms. For his complete track, you can follow Euphy’s post.
A little bit later, I was able to track the green version around the same spot.
Here are the last two colours for comparison.
By the way, as part of Cyber Monday Deals Week at Amazon you can now buy the Collector’s Boxed Edition for Mists of Pandaria at half price! So if you haven’t splurged yet, what better time to?
This basilisk may be found in Townlong Steppes once you pick up his trail of Worn Tracks. I managed to spot the first one around the middle of the zone but lost him as he came out of the Lower Sumprushes so I loaded up Euphy’s video for his exact path. By the time I found him, he was coming back the other way heading up towards Farwatch Overlook.
Look at that! I kind of match him although I have a lot of work to do for gear. It’s much better than last week’s look though. Just don’t focus too long on that belt. I know I’m won’t…
