With Deathwing preparing to tear Azeroth asunder in just a few short weeks, now is a great time to venture out and snatch up any rare pets you’ve been thinking about taming. Once Cataclysm hits, it’s possible some of them may not be around anymore. Certain one-of-a-kind pets like Araga and Strider Clutchmother may be on the verge of extinction, as well as quite a few other unusual and/or rare spawn pets.
The other thing to keep in mind is that the world of Azeroth as we know it will be changing forever. The next few weeks can be a nice opportunity to take it easy, go hunting for some pets, and see the world. We’ve got two dozen available slots now and a lot of new special pet abilities to play with… go have some fun.
The screenshot at the top of this post was sent in by a long-time reader, Semilac. I have to say… that is one impressive stable, not to mention a very cool WoW Hunter pet montage. All four Spirit Beasts, King Krush, Nuramoc, Uhk’loc, … very well done!
Some of you may recognize his name from a previous post. Semilac originally became semi-famous when I posted an earlier screenshot of his server-first tame of Skoll, just after Patch 3.2 went live; August of last year. That particular post happens to be one of the all-time most viewed posts on this site. 😯
Along with Semilac and many other hunters, I too have been venturing out in an effort to expand my pet collection. Many of the new pets I’ve acquired are actually favorites of mine from before, but had to be cut loose at one time or another. Not anymore though… with 24 (soon to be 25) stable slots, I can now accommodate my beloved pets from yesteryear and still have room for what will be lurking in Cataclysm.
Which reminds me… don’t get too crazy trying to fill the stable, because you are going to need a few empty slots for some of the exciting new creatures found in the upcoming expansion. We’re gonna have monkeys, foxes, Helboars, parrots, dogs, beetles and more… including the soon-to-be-sought-after Ghostcrawler, which you may want to camp… or kill… or camp and kill. Repeatedly. *nods at Rilgon*
So what about you all..? You been busy adding to the stable?
If anyone else has any cool shots like Semilac’s, I’d love to post them. 🙂
Oh ya… and lawman… thanks again for the catch phrase. 😉 I’m tellin’ ya… t-shirts would be badass. What hunter wouldn’t want a shirt with their own unique stable of pets printed on the back..?!
