I am very impressed with what you have written up, Merd. And for those that don't know, I am the Myraz that he mentions in the article above. He messaged me on Bnet this evening and asked me to come and take a look at his post on TLPD. It was almost two years ago that I got mine and if my memory is correct, Merd was actually there that same time camping another spot. Little did I know that he was in the process of writing a book, lol. I did know then that he was much into researching TLPD, along with another subject that I hope he also writes about later. Merd was my mentor in my camping days bot with TLPD and rare hunter pets.
Btw, I STILL have not gotten Aeonaxx but his time is getting very short. Merduin mentions that I had gotten my TLPD on my first day but it was actually about three weeks after I first starting hunting him. I remember Serenity getting hers and yes it was just three days after mine came. All three of us spent some grand times freezing our ying yangs off on that cold mountain for quite a while. All in all, I have to say that Merduin has done a fantastic job with this and I can verify the information he has put forth here. Following his advice, I have my very own TLPD which still gets stares and gets me wsp's on an almost daily basis.
And if any of you decide to go to Emerald Dream and go hunting, drop by Aeonaxx's place of hiding and give Raz a shout while you're in there. You may just find me there camping again. Very well done, Merduin and I want to see more stuff like this from you, buddy!

Thanks, Myraz. Appreciate the feedback. My bad on your start date. I fixed that.

Yes, it was grand times. But I'm still shaking the icicles off my Dwarven backside from that camp. Brrrrrrrrr!

Good luck on the Aeonaxx. He's a camp and a half!

One thing I was wondering and this has NOT been confirmed completely yet but I am working on it now is that since we can now create a trial account I took advantage of that and made a level 100 toon on other realms that I had no toons on at all. After getting past the starting quest, I found that I can go anywhere I want to in the game. I took one to Deepholm and then went to Stormpeaks with that trial. That tells me that we do not have to pay to switch a toon from one realm to another. Whether or not you may keep what you catch, such as the reins to TLPD is another factor which I am trying to figure out by trying to get the elusive Aeonaxx. Will update this if I ever get lucky enough to find out, lol.

A quick and easy test for the "account wide" aspect would be to catch a world drop pet and see if it's accessible on normal toons. Something like G'nathus. Once that's confirmed you may want to try an "easier" world drop mounts you don't have.

Maybe one of the Draenor ones like Pathfinder or Gorok (if you don't have those yet)?

I did the so called "test" to check on what happens to account bound drops and they do count if gotten from a trial account. I went on a trial account and found G'nathus, killed it, looted it, and Spawn of G'nathus did drop. Added it to my collection, then checked a normal toon and there it was. There is hope yet for those that don't want to spend hard earned cash for a realm swap. Go make a trial account and happy hunting!

This will save time upfront but it will be important to note that aggroing by flying through the TLPD or Varygosa will be markedly harder. Not impossible but you'll need to fly right through the exact middle of their hitbox to make it work. It could take a few tries and seconds to accomplish. So be prepared for that.

You guys have convinced me to casually try for TLPD. :) I made a trial hunter character on Gallywix and just for fun I flew through Sholazar and tamed Loque, King Krush, AND Aotona. :lol: They were all just sitting there! (EDIT: and Skoll)

So now I've got some camping buddies and I'm just going to park myself in Storm Peaks and see if I get lucky one day. :)

Gratz on the buddies Vephriel. That reminds me of the time I first invited Myraz onto Emerald Dream. He grabbed Loque, Aotona and King Krush too.

Don't forget Gondria and Arcturis. They make good camping buddies too. Also, a friendly reminder, if your pet is out and you decide to camp a specific spawn ... be sure your pet is on passive. If they get the kill ... no mount. :(

Good luck on your TLPD hunt. Let me know if I can answer any questions!

As of Legion this is thankfully no longer the case! Maybe it has something to do with how many pets we utilize in our rotation now, but if an enemy is killed by our pets we can loot it like the old days! :)

Also, is it true the the level 100 trials have an 8 hour lock on them (as in, once you've played them for 8 hours game time you can no longer do anything until you purchase a boost)? I guess it was too good to be true that we could just make a free 100 character anywhere we wanted with no strings attached. :lol:

Dang Veph, I must be very unlucky. Not a single Northrend rare was up. Well, except Vyragosa, which was NOT the droid I was looking for. :lol:

I was taught that if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything. So I will just keep my trap shut for now.


All kidding aside, GRATZ!!!
