It had occurred to me that, as a BM hunter, I should really have a Spirit Beast. I mean…yeah, they’re not exactly the choice DPS pet right now, but…dude, Spirit Beast. Every BM hunter should have on in their stable to play Pokemans with, right?
I had looked for Loque a grand total of…once before and the others, never. It being a Tuesday night, I figured that maaaaaybe it was a good day to look. Maaaaybe. So Jamethera hopped on her trusty Netherdrake and toured the Basin. Nada. Well, poop.
What the hell, I thought. Let’s go look for the others. I flappy flappy over to Zul’drak and swoop over Gondria’s spawn points.
At the last one, SilverDragon pings.
No really, that’s what I said. “Oh, fuck.”
Naturally she spawned next to the shrine with the elites. Sure enough, mid tame, one of them wanders over and smacks me to death.
“Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck.”
I run back. Rez in a corner. Drop the trap in the corner. Start taming.
Watch a bear walk over to me…
Tame completes before the bear goes OMNOMNOM on my face.
Now, for the hard part: a name! EYELZRZ?
My original snow leopard, companion through vanilla and all of my BC raiding, is Schneeflocke. My Devilsaur is Omnomnom, because I thought that was the most hilarious name ever for a dinosaur (and still do). The Core Hound is LootTheDog, for all of us former Molten Core raiders. My wolf is Cúchulainn, a figure from Celtic mythology. As you can see, I’m kind of all over the place for pet names. We’ll have to see what “sticks”.
On second thought: another pet to level? FUCK!
