Rookie Rabid Crew

Ah, the Darkmoon Rabbit. A foe I’ve encountered several times but managed to kill twice. My first raid on the beta was… interesting to say the least. When he went live, I didn’t expect to win the pet on my first try but was happy to get the achievement.

Now just look at that face…

I happened to die twice during the encounter but was fortunate enough to get a battle rez after the first death – maybe because I was the top healer at the time. The guy who won rolled an 80. I sure hope he uses him well since I saw the rabbit on Alliance side for 300K the other day. Times like that I wish I had gold over there but not for that price.

Later on, I was Pet Battling in the Valley when I saw in general: Chief Salyis yells “Loot and pillage, bwahahaha!” so I went to get a closer look. I thought he would be engaged already with one side or the other but it seems to be the zone wide alert when he spawns.

I decided to hang around a minute to see what happened. Sure enough, there was a raid forming so I joined. Someone said he only spawns every three days so I felt really lucky to see him. In fact, this is only the second time I’ve seen him on live servers.

Even with a group of Alliance trying to flag people, we managed to kill it without much trouble. I was really happy to win the Robes of Blue Skies and thought I may as well use my extra roll too. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I also won the Stomphowl Pendant.

It’s a little funny that the day I finally decided to mog my set (since setting foot in Pandaria), ended up being the shortest mog ever.

The evening ended with a wave from Veluxia, a fellow pet battler I see often – more often than not with her inner focus going – although I only see the glowy balls during a tamer battle. I did accidentally do the same thing the other day coming out of a dungeon though :P I even gave a 30min tutorial to someone about Pet Battling, when he started asking me questions about it, part of my #26Acts perhaps?

Plus, I’m happy to say that Rookie Pet Mob is now complete! Now if Jeremy would part with his Darkmoon Eye already…

  1. Grats! Lol, when I did him I won … an achievement, he actually drops stuff? Who knew! I shouldn’t complain, I have very bad RNG luck but seem to have the TLPD type of luck instead. The stumbling over things you didn’t know you were looking for kind of luck!

  2. Congrats on the achievement :) I haven’t battled Jeremy at all this week. I think that makes me a bad pet battler!

  3. Jeremy is a punk. I literally typed /slap on him today, and yes, it made me feel better!

  4. Grats on killing the rabbit, I managed to get my first kill two Faires ago.

    300K for the pet??? I thought paying 50K for mine the only time it showed up on our AH was a lot….maybe now I can sell it for more, lol.

    And yes, I agree with Matty, Jeremy is being a little punk b*^%# and won’t give up the Eye. I wish I could just throw my Pristine trap on Judgement and just steal his. ><

  5. Grats! I still haven’t managed to get my kill yet. And grats on your loots in the Galleon kill too :D

    • Tome – I still remember the day you posted about that. Serendipitous indeed!

      Josh – Oh, what’s holding you back? Imagine if you did it, you may already have it by now… :P

      Matty – you know, it makes me feel better that I’m not the only one having shitty luck with that Eye.

      Arv – You bought it? Wow, nice. At the rate I’m going I might have to as well although I need to make some gold first.

      Navi – Thanks, I’m really liking the dress, I didn’t even know it existed. I have no idea how often he spawns but GL in your kill.

  6. Grats on the drops and on seeing Galleon at all – on my server he must be swarmed within five minutes of spawning, because I’ve never seen him about. Transmogging gear seems a surefire way to get some replacements ASAP. RNG is such a troll. D:

  7. Congrats on your kills and loots! Still hoping for my shots, but so far it’s looking like another “TLPD dream”, lol! Haven’t even seen Galleon but once in all this time.

  8. Wow Grats on the loot that neck is nommy! I’ve yet to see the Darkmoon Rabbit let alone fight him! Maybe next time!

  9. Congrats Cymre! Galleon just gives me gold for every single try so far. I can’t wait for the changes in the next patch. But oh that rabbit picture is gruesome *shudders*

    • LOL, just the reaction Coolidge was hoping for :) There’s a lot of changes I’m looking forward to – Galleon being one of them.

  10. We killed the Darkmoon Rabbit last week when the faire was open but alas I did not win the pet. Haven’t had much luck with Galleon spawns either. Seems like by the time we get a raid together the Alliance has already killed him. My server is predominantly Alliance. Jeremy is a bif old Scrooge with the Darkmoon Eye pets isn’t he? Oh Well! I’ll be back in February for him too.
