On The Hunt

Over the years, I’ve tamed countless rares on my hunter, only to abandon them when something else came along. Back in vanilla, you had to think long and hard before you clicked that abandon option with only a couple of slots play with. Then again, it wasn’t just about taming a new pet. You had to spend time grinding out the levels which could feel like forever if it was something many levels below you. Pets had loyalty and...

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...

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...

My Grub Has Bite

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...

Portent

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...
