Started playing wow a long time ago and then sadly we could only have very few pets, so it was all which is good for dps and switch/tame a new pet when you have to, and level it all the way again.
Old memories, was definitly a long grind and getting boring, and now with 25 slots (still need more!) its a whole different story and much more fun since I can collect pets now, instead of leaving them since you do not have room in your stable.
It all started with mostly the Spirit beasts. The first one I was after the first day of Wotlk was Loque (my good friend now:p), and instead of leveling in the first day to I camped him for almost 2 days (only about 5 hunters where higher level then me), but never saw him, quit it and kept on leveling. After I came back often to check but it still took me about 2 months or so till I got it.
The first time you see the spirit beast is a great feeling, you almost start shaking since you have been looking for it for ages, and hoping no one else will kill it or mess up your tame, you jump of your flying mount and almost making stupid mistakes. But ones I got it it was great, and then even 2 weeks later I found another and 2 months later my 3rd. (tamed all 3 of them, was always very late in the night and my friends who still needed it where never around and did not want to leave them for the other faction or let him get killed by achiev hunters or loot whores.) Since then I have seen him perhaps 5-6 times, but even more skoll, while he was the last wotlk one I got, I found him so often later while looking for the time lost proto (also got it after 1-2 years).
I did quit wow for a bit before firelands and now back and very happy with the new taming challenges, already looking mostly for them instead of doing gear upgrades or something more importent according to most people.
I was so happy when my first full day-ish on wow I found one of the new spirit beasts in hyjal the white one. Just then my friends pc (playing on it) started lagging like crazy and almost did disconnect, which made me die, then I ran back and forgot to un-equip one piece of armor and got killed and was getting crazy since another hunter could pick him up. Ressed and went flying and did not see him, then found him in the far corner without mobs around him and tamed him, was a great welcome back on wow. But I see more camping for Ben´thalos so I recon that one will be hard.
Well I will write more later if people like to read these kind of things.
Now I would like to share my top 25 pets I would like to collect (not sure about 5 but most of them), since I recon a lot more of you are doing the same thing, trying to come with your special collection.
So here is my list:
- 9 Spirit Beasts
- King Krush
- Chromaggus (need the buff, no rare but he is unique)
- Old cliff jumper (rare unique and got this fellow for some years)
- Numaroc (got him since early tbc so he stays with me)
- Olm the wise (almost looks like a spirit beast)
- Madexx (got 3 now, had 4. Keep one for sure maybe 2 or 3)
- Lord Kri (for buff and unique skin)
- other ones I am thinking of perhaps Ashtail, Rex Ashil, Aotona, Spiteflayer or something not sure, and always open with suggestions.
Got all of them except from the newest patches only 1.
Would be nice to see more lists if people are also collecting them!
Well I wish all of you good luck in hunting/taming more pets and fun in wow!
