Rare Elite – Julak-Doom

I’d seen this rare around early in the expansion, watching a group of Alliance try and take this massive beast down with a group of about 8 at the time. They had a lot of trouble with his abilities. Today I managed to spot this rare again with Coolidge on my back (literally) and I knew it would be a feat to kill him as a duo. Having experienced his abilities first hand we sent a few calls out gaining a DPS from the Guild to...

Silver Dragons

I’ve been collecting rares in the game for as long as I can remember. It all began with a shot of Rak’shiri in Winterspring. I can’t quite remember why I asked Huga to take a shot of him. I think I was wanting to tame him as a pet at the time and thought it would be cool to start a collection of all the rares in the game. I always try to get a great action shot, hopefully while they are displaying what is unique...

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.

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...
