Despite my new Survival off spec, I am still BM4LYFE. The one pet that I have been after, for months and months and months…has been Loque. I have seen him once, moments after he was tamed by another hunter.

There’s several (SEVEN FOR LOQUE OH MY GOD WHY) mother fucking spawn points scattered across a large zone for all but 1 of them.
Seriously, Blizz? I once spent a good, oh I don’t know, 7 hours camping Humar back in the day when he was more than just a pretty skin. It wasn’t too onerous becuase I sat in one spot and entertained myself with friends while we waited. He had only one spawn–I’d know the moment he popped and also the moment I missed him, if someone else beat me to the punch. Even if I didn’t get him it wasn’t the end of the world–I’d have a good idea of when to come back and could safely wander off in the meantime and pretend to have something better to do.
You can’t do that with the spirit beasts. Take Loque. There’s so many spawn points for him, scattered so widely across the zone, that you can miss him and not even know it. Did someone just tame him? Are you wasting your time with no chance for him to spawn? Did you move on just a smidge too soon? The other hunter in the zone left–did he get him, or give up? Did that belfadin who has been killing you repeatedly while he mines kill him out of spite?
You can never tell…so YOU MUST KEEP LOOKING.

You’ve been hunting for hours. Finally, you spot him–your moonfiring quarry. You start to tame and….oh no. Oh no. FUCK. FUCK. GOD DAMN IT ALL TO HELL.
Tames can be fucked with. People are jerks. End of story.

Making Loque part of the Frostbitten achievement was a cruel move, Blizzard. Fuck you sideways.

You will find and tame every spirit beast but the one you want.
I’m 2/4, if you’re wondering.
