To all the rares I’ve loved before… except while camping them

Just found this gem this morning. If you know me well you wouldn’t be surprised to read that I’ve been known to camp a beast for days or for several straight hours. Lupos in Duskwood is one that comes to mind, as well as King Krush back in Northrend. There are still some I have yet to see though; like the blue and green scorpid and 2 flying rares in Deepholm. Two group rares have also eluded me so far but it’s not...

Look Who’s a Rare Now

If you were around as a Horde player in vanilla, this lion used to be pretty tricky to tame or even see if you were a hunter looking to tame this beauty – or even just to do the quest. The only other cat to share this skin was Echeyakee in The Barrens. Both the result of quest summons. The former was the result of a quest asking you to slay Shy-Rotam (an elite)  in Winterspring. Once she gets to ~50%, her mate spawns. Back in...

Lady La-La

You may have heard of Lady Gaga but have you met Lady La-La? No? Then let me introduce you to the rare found in the Kelp’thar Forest of Vashj’ir. She has 2 rather interesting abilities: Briny Romance – Catch the enemy in a briny romance. Deals Frost damage every 3 sec. for 15 sec (seen on my cat) and Siren’s Song – Cause all nearby enemies to just dance! When you first engage her you can hear music...

Rare Elite – Garr

Not bad. Our 2nd Group rare in 2 days! Just 2 more and our Group Rare collection will be complete. We tackled this familiar foe with 5 people using 3 ranged DPS to avoid his Massive Eruption – which deals Fire damage to nearby enemies. Although you can pull him without his adds they did have a certain affinity for Fae’s pet :P Thank goodness for Feign :) His other 2 abilities: Magma Shackles – Reduces the movement...

Rare Elite – Mobus

Here’s our 2nd Group Rare kill taken in the Abyssal Depths of Vashj’ir. The kill itself took ~12mins with five level 80’s. Mobus has 4 abilities: Algae clouds which can be easily moved out of once he has targeted someone; Ram which had our tank using a CD for every cleave; Wake basically our DPS kept to one side of him for the duration; and Enrage which he will do towards the end. We actually used 2 healers but could...

Rare Elite – Akma’hat

I usually like to sleep in on Sundays but this could be one of the few exceptions to the rule. After Coolidge called me with a brief, yet urgent “Get on, please get on, Get on!” 000 call; I quickly learnt that he had found one of the Group rares in Uldum – Akma’hat. He has the following abilities: Fury of the Sands – Sand boulders erupt in all directions, dealing Physical damage on impact. Sands of Time...

It Comes in Threes!

I still can’t believe it! What an awesome 3 days it’s been. Two days ago I managed to get The Horseman’s Reins on Tallys, the next day the same thing happened on Cymre. The Pièce de résistance came when after days and many hours of camping King Krush, he was finally mine!! Persistence really does pay off :D Share this:TwitterFacebookGoogleRedditLike this:Like...
