After eleven days or so of scouting the Basin, I was beginning to have these Spirit Beast dreams that other Hunters speak of. I had the premonition during my early morning slumber that this morning was destiny. Anyway, I woke up and went about my day, then after a awhile I thought, hmmm… well it’s worth a shot.
I logged in and patrolled Loque’nahak’s spawn points twice – no luck. Try again tonight.
After awhile I thought well… I saw King Krush last night at 11:00, I wonder if he’ll respawn again this morning at 11am? I was still really excited about the challenge of solo taming him. I figured I’d take another short break from the home-office duties and get back on for a few in the event I’d get another shot at Krush.
Since the night before I saw him at his southern spawn area near The Skyreach Pillar, I thought I’d take my chances there again. I started clearing wasps away from his patrol area to avoid additional hassle with the tame. After about 3 minutes of doing this, guess who pops up..?!
This surprised the hell out of me, but I must admit I was a pretty cool customer. I even had the presence of mind to video the taming. Fortunately (for once) there was not a soul around. My temp pet was finishing up on a Wasp which I quickly helped dispose of, then I abandoned him right quick. I laid a Freezing Trap and pulled him.
He did his pounce attack right into my trap and from there it was pretty much textbook. I panned my camera around after he was trapped to see if there were any poachers coming up on us. No one in sight!
This was most definitely my lucky day. It’s likely Loque’nahak would have been spotted and killed within 2-3 minutes maximum, and for me to be there at that instant was pure Karma.
