No worries! I don't play as much during the week because my new job exhausts me. :lol:

Oo, I haven't tried one of these on Rhyela yet. Should be fun!

Probably delaying the rest of my challenges until the weekend (depending on how productive I am tomorrow) as it's midterm week and my brain is a little fried.

I haven't forgotten, though c:

No worries! I understand that midterms is a tough time to get anything outside of school done. :) You've got a lot of challenges on your plate, and I'd feel bad if you weren't focused on school.

Not to mention with heirlooms being upgraded I've leveled my troll hunter and am spending time on her :lol:

Tasha sifted through a disorganized jumble of old (and incomplete) notes on the fauna of Kalimdor. She sighed heavily and massaged her temples with her knuckles. She looked through small window. Dawn. She blew out the candle near her, tilted her head slightly towards the roof, and closed her eyes. All of her muscles were tense. She breathed slowly, relaxing.

After a few moments, her awareness returned to the pile of deteriorating paper in front of her, and then her hands. A dusty residue from the paper had coated her fingertips. She gathered the mess of documents together and took them to the terrace.

The Sentinels were still on eternal vigil, but the city was quiet - there was always a lull at this time of day. Merchants would begin their daytime operations, catering largely to foreigners, soon.

It was much easier to see the scribbles outside, in the pale gold light of dawn. It was not as favorable as pure moonlight, though, but it was too cloudy to read outside last night.

The young kaldorei huntress continued her search. Finally, at around noon, she found it: a page of details on the creature known to most as a 'tallstrider'. Her later father had no kind things to say about the thing, calling it both a 'tall chicken' and a 'graceless crane'. Now, she needed to hunt it.

Image

A small flock was supposedly still living in the Barrens - Tasha's information was not from her father's notes, which oddly did not include habitat. The huntress made her way to central Kalimdor, detouring through Alliance camps and avoiding scouting Horde. She quickly found the oasis that the creatures supposedly live in, and the beasts themselves were easy to spot once she was nearby.

Much to Tasha's surprise, the 'tall chickens' were fascinating, beautiful creatures. After spending some time watching them, she resolved to abandon her current gig - the payment was a pittance anyways - and tame one of the creatures instead.

Image
Note: they don't stay sparkly when tamed :c

Image

Tasha was immediately impressed by how energetic the tallstrider was. The creature seemed almost jittery, or nervous. She decided to have it fight by her side for a while. She named the bird Ethel, after a rather anxious human she knew.

Here are some screenshots in Siege of Orgrimmar and Throne of Thunder:

I personally love the tallstrider animations, although they do seem like a mixture of sass and anxiety (which, I guess, isn't a bad thing). They look pretty fierce when they fight, and not silly at all. The purple tallstrider is one of my troll's favorite pets (tamed back when my troll was still a night elf, actually).

Here are some more screenshots of Ethel:

Despite the moderate training, the creature did not seem to calm down, although Tasha noted (and thoroughly enjoyed) its admirable amount of sass. Regardless, the huntress deemed Ethel unsuitable for the ever-gloomy campaign she was to participate in on the Broken Shore, and returned it to its oasis. Hopefully Ethel could avoid predators in the future, although its bright colours make stealth a bit... difficult.

Overall, tallstriders are really fun pets, but it feels weird having one on a night elf hunter again. This is definitely a pet I'd recommend though, as they are available at a low level, and, as just mentioned, really fun with their jittery, sassy animations. My favorite is the purple one, which is the starting pet for tauren hunters.

Note: I didn't find the required croc up at first, so I grabbed this ^^^ guy for a bit while I waited for respawn. Look at how big he is in the 'wild'!

Hiee!
I'm really not feeling Nhee right now. I wouldn't say it's a dead toon, but I'm just not motivated to play her right now. Each time I try, I log in and see this quest staring back at me, and it's just like... Nah. Maybe not today.
I'll get the motivation back at some point, but until then I'd like to do this on one of my other new hunters :)

Name: Abelon
Level: 13 (Sidenote: I hate how they changed Tame Beast to a level 13 spell)
Exotics: Nope
Restrictions: Nope

Seriously, moving tame beast to level 13 was such a stupid move.

Ethel's story was cute. :) I look forward to seeing more.

Post subject:  Re: Random Pet Challenge [v4.0]

Hehe, it ended up being more about my night elf than Ethel. I guess my nelf has a bit more backstory now...

Anyways, I'll write up Wreka's report later, but for now I'll just leave this here...

I'm throwing in a challenge tame, but if it proves too difficult or you're not up for it/don't have access, there will also be a second, easier option. You do not need to do both. :)

Ooh neat choices :) I will go see about the sandreaver soon, the boar should be interesting since I could never really click with them in the past

Okay so we'll start with the silithid.

Bixy decided to head to Gaget to see if she had the required quest for Sarinexx.
Image

Turns out she did
Image

Had to wait for awhile for some other players to finish up and when her time came.
Image
Image
Image

Meet Schyte
Image

First impressions
A very nice if abit boxy model, colors are beautiful.
Movement however is somewhat of a downside for me personally, the jerky twitchy movement gets to me, they should come with a seziure warning almost.

Took her with me while questing in Hellfire Peninsula.
Image
Image

Attack animation seems to be a mix between stabbing with the front limbs and biting, it works with the model but personally something akin to scorpion stinging animation could have worked with it.
Image

Over all conclusion
A very bright,pretty pet that seems to hold aggro reasonably well.
Damage output seems abit low but it is something I can learn to overlook.
The one big minus for me was the running animations, far too twitchy and jerky, it looked unnatural,as if they took an animation for something else and hit the fast forward button.

Image

That said, it looks for all intents and purposes like Schyte is here to stay.

I'm alittle rusty so I hope this was okay.
