This is Totally on Me

“Someone must’ve told him about my little maneuver in the Battle of Tanaab.”
– Lando Calrissian

The PTR was update again, and this time it includes changes for hunters. The most intriguing was this one about some new rare pets.

“8 new rare tamable beasts have been added, each of which provides a unique taming challenge. Will you be the first hunter to tame Deth’tilac, the rarest and most powerful of them all? Players will need to progress through the Hyjal Regrowth and Molten Front daily questing areas in order to unlock access to the full gamut of taming challenges.”

This is very unexpected and exciting. I’m taking full credit for this, by the way. I’ve mentioned here on the blog and on the podcast that I’ve been extremely lucky finding the rare mobs with little or no time invested in camping and searching.
Case in point. This past week I happened to pass through Uldum and low and behold there was Madexx.
Madexx is cool, but man does he shrink once tamed.
And then this past Saturday I was doing some Therazzane dailies when I decided that I’d go and get Jadefang. I hopped up in her cave and there she was.
The next day I was doing the dailies again and I figured I would go and get the pet that she drops. Alas, I missed it by about 30 seconds. As I was working my way through the tunnels, a Tauren Hunter wooshed by and beat me to it.
Some of the other pets I’ve tamed that have been grab-N-go include Terrorpene, Sambas, Arcturis, Skoll, Gondria (twice), Loque’nahak (twice), Humar (back in Vanilla), Rak’shiri (back in Vanlilla), and Nuramoc.
So as you can see, based on all the luck I’ve had, it should come as no surprise that Blizzard is now introducing eight new rare pets each with it’s own unique taming challenges.
Challenge accepted, I say. Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go and make some room in my stable for these new friends.
Good Hunting!

  1. I hate you a little bit 'cause I never see those rares out in the world, lol. I've got Gondria from before Cata released, but never seen any of the others. I need some of your luck!

  2. If you aren't using NPCscan yet, i recommend doing so, because it really helps searching for rare pets. It pops up like you get an achievement when a rare pet is close to you. =)
