If you ever wanted to have one of the Pandaren Elemental spirits as one (or even four) of your pets, you now can with Patch 5.1. However, you’ll only be able to pick up the quest once you have completed the entire Pet Tamer chain which currently ends with Grand Master Aki.
Just head to your Battle Trainer in your Pandaren capital city for the starting quest. For Horde, talk to Gentle San located at the top of the Shrine of Two Moons. For Alliance, talk to Sara Finkleswitch in the Shrine of Seven Stars.
Expect all four Pandaren Spirits to have level 25 Legendary pets including the corresponding spirit reward as part of the team.
Whispering Pandaren Spirit <Grand Master Pet Tamer>
Location: Exclamation Point, The Jade Forest (in the middle of Tigers’ Wood on a peak) – 28, 35
Pets: Pandaren Air Spirit (Elemental), Dusty (Critter) and Whispertail (Dragonkin)
Thundering Pandaren Spirit <Grand Master Pet Tamer>
Location: in the mountains above the Shrine of the Two Moons, Vale of Endless Blossoms – 67, 14
Pets: Pandaren Earth Spirit (Elemental), Sludgy (Critter) and Darnak the Tunneler (Beast)
Defeating all four Master Tamers will reward you with one of the elemental spirits as a reward as well as the achievement Pandaren Spirit Tamer.
Not surprisingly, once you complete the quest for the first time, you’ll be able to do it again as a daily which is account-wide, giving you a chance to get the other three from the corresponding elemental dailies – the Pandaren Spirit Pet Supplies.
On another note, Mumper confirmed that “the drop rates on Rare stones from battles are low. Pet daily quests offer a better rate but still not easy.”
I was looking forward to trying her today after the servers came back up but I was really not expecting to win right off the bat… seems my rare team of my Flayer Hatchling (25), Small Frog (25) and Dark Phoenix Hatchling (25) all worked out nicely. In fact, my ravager’s reflection ability was perfect against Stormlash.
The second time round (after she converts to a daily), I managed to win again – even with a different starting combo.
Due to a bug, I’ve had Taming Eastern Kingdoms done for a couple of weeks now but the achievement doesn’t come up as complete.
I still have a few missing from Eastern Kingdoms Safari so I went looking for some Larva to add to my collection but they are about as rare as the minfernal and baby ape it seems. I read they get killed quite a lot by other mobs in Ghostlands but here I am waiting for one to spawn.
I may just go to Naxx to get one and be done with it…
Edit: I managed to find one as part of a team I was fighting. Grey but it counts…
Things sure have changed since I last battled the Grand Master Pet Tamers of Pandaria but I was excited about trying the Northrend and Cataclysm tamers since they were new to me. Last night I completed the Cataclysm part but the fact that Obalis – the Grand Master in Uldum had Epic pets was a new one for me.
Today I had the remaining five in Pandaria to battle but I left it until the last hour or so to try them out (I forgot about server shutdown). I’m not sure if the tamers were easier or I just had a good combination but I didn’t have too much trouble with them. I didn’t even have to change my team up for the most part. Those pet bandages sure came in handy though :P
So with 7mins left on the clock, I flew to the Wilds from Townlong Steppes to see if I could get the last tamer under my belt before I dropped out. At around 5mins left before the servers went down, I DC’ed from Battle.net but kept going with my battle. Luckily I won with 4mins left on the clock. I hearthed back to the Vale to see how far I could get with Aki. I knew I wouldn’t be able to complete the battle in time but it was a great way to gauge any change, if any, with my kick-ass team.
I guess I should have expected this but with 2mins left before I dropped out, this is what I saw…
Yep, LEGENDARY pets.
Something to look forward to tomorrow :)
I just had a look through my beta shots and it looks like Aki’s pets had the same stats but they sure look more intimidating with the orange colour :P
