I somehow missed these past couple stories. I love both of them, but I definitely think the rylak story is my favorite so far. :D

@Tårnfalk and Rhyela Thank you!! <3 :hug:

Hati & Themis, the Spirit Beast

Well, I completely forgot that Legion had gone live when I logged in today and my immediate thought was "OMGINEEDTHEMOOSE". I know very little about the new expansion apart from what beasts are tameable so the whole thing came as a surprise, especially that I could pick Stormheim and head over to get Bulvinkel immediately. I wasn't sure what the situation with him would be, I don't know his spawn timer and I don't know how in demand he is. I was very surprised as I was flying through Orgrimmar and new Dalaran that I didn't see a single hunter with him - I took it as a bad sign.

I wasn't very hyped for Hati but I changed my mind immediately upon seeing her and I really enjoyed the quest for Titanstrike. Gotta love Thorim's reference to Skoll as well, he introduces you excitedly to Hati then calls for Skoll (who is of course off being a rare-spawn) only to say something along the lines of ".. where has that wolf run off to?". Jokes on you, Thorim , I tamed your precious Skoll. :lol:

Hati then heroically saves you and you have to tame her in order to save her/him. (I thought she was a she but I swear Thorim said him) When you click on him/her she has a silver portrait which is pretty cool.

So, off I went on a mad-dash to Stormheim. The plan was to run immediately all the way over to Bulvinkel but I made a new friend during questing so we ended up heading over there naturally. The quest lines are very immersive and enjoyable.

Action shot ft. Hati and Skoll


So now all I had to do was find my moose. I couldn't serverhop because we were queued for a dungeon. I didn't know anything about all of his spawn points only that he was on the ledges with the goats. I dropped down to the first ledge and.... nothing. I was really sad because this was where I'd seen him tamed in videos. I even went across to all the other ledges and nothing. My friend was very sad and said he was a new rare spawn so he must be in demand. I agreed and since I couldn't get back up the cliff I decided to throw myself to my death in order to become unstuck.

I jumped off the ledge and I swear to god I have never had such a heart attack. As I was falling I spotted a ledge, lower than all the others and on it something very big , very bright and very blue. I spammed disengage at the last minute, saving myself and ran over.


Image

I think this accurately portrays my level of adrenaline


It was of course him, I was amazed he was up. And right on the edge too! If I hadn't seen that ledge on the way down I definitely would never have seen him at all, it's quite obscure and huge drop down from the other ledges.

Doing a celebratory kick


So now I have my beautiful moose! I planned to name him something like Electra or Auros but from questing with him I get the vibe that he's a really moody old man? :lol: But a badass old man, like Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino or something.

"What are you taking pictures of, punk?"

The stream in Highmountain has a current so I decided to take them for a ride. Bully was apparently so unamused he decided to pass on into the next life.

"What is this I see before me?"



Image

Equality moose is displeased by everyone equally


MORE SCREENSHOTS


Image

I think he's starting to like me!


Image

Beastial wrath makes for one huge colourful moose.

He really enjoyed Val'sharah and has been named Themis!

Wow, that's amazing! I'm glad you spotted him and saved yourself at the last second!

I know, it was such a close call!

Rocket the Wolf


Whenever there's a new expansion I always rush to the wolf page to see what new skins there are and this time around I took a liking to the dire worgs but I wasn't particularly enamoured by the dark brown maned wolf. That is, until I saw one for the first time whilst questing in Val'sharah today. Their picture really doesn't do them justice. I bumped into him rather unexpectedly on my way to that Worgenesque village and thought about taming him because he looked so miserable


Image


Yes, he was just sat staring at a tree. I thought I'd at least keep him for the questline or see if he grew on me but the minute I hit tame and I saw his adorable little face I knew he would be staying...


Image


THEY LOOK LIKE DOGS! THEY LOOK LIKE ADORABLE LITTLE COLLIES OR SOMETHING AND I HAD NO IDEA. I guess the white patches aren't really that visible on the model on Petopia but they are so much more adorable in person!!!



Image

Dancing for joy



As you can see, they have a lot of character. I'd really recommend them to any hunter who is looking to get a dog that isn't a mastiff, a demon or glows in the dark. Now for the cascade of screenshots.



Image

Giving Araxxas the ol' razzle dazzle



Image

I agree that the solution to any fight is to plant your face into the ground and scream



Image

This would have been quite a moody picture if it wasn't for the smiling eagle photo bombing.



Image

He knows how to beg!



Image

Look at that face!

Hmm, they actually are pretty cute. I just tamed a wolf last night though, so I doubt I need yet another one. I already have so many! :lol: I really like Rocket though. Those different colors somehow make them look floofier and cuter.

Trouble, the Core Hound


I've decided to post some of the stories of my older tames, since it's becoming rare that I actually keep taming new pets due to my stable being full. Trouble is a Core Hound I've had since the day he was released (he's the rare-spawn, Chromehound) back in Cataclysm. I immediately flew over to Blackrock Mountain in the hopes of finding him and lo and behold the minute I got through the gate he was right there infront of me, chomping down on my face. This was around the time that every hunter had one of these Core Hounds. If you were cool, you had a Drakeadon. So I kept him just to whip him out whenever I was in Stormwind.

I think everyone at some point has had a pet that they have never bonded with or particularly like but have kept anyway. He was one of those and I think he hates me for it :lol:. Every week, I would drag him out for ICC and then put him right back in the stable afterwards. Everytime we got to the ship he always managed to get "stuck" in the middle and refuse to help until I dismissed him and called him again. I actually had a screenshot of him doing this but it has since disappeared (I'm calling sabotage).


Image

"Why you gotta be like this?"


Since I've started this journal I've tried 're-connecting' with some of my old pets to see if I can write something about them. So I decided to take my nameless Core Hound with me on my dailies and on a little adventure around Pandaria (since he was stabled for MoP and WoD combined) to gauge his character.. And it turned out he's not exactly as fun and loyal as most of my pets. It's like he has to be with me because I tamed him and I'm his food source but he'd rather be stomping in a circle around Blackrock Mountain. :lol:


Image

"Are we there yet?"



Here, I tried to take him on a jog around the valley and instead of running by my side he reluctantly trudged along miles behind me. He eventually got so fed up with my attempts to bond with him that he had enough and decided to climb a tree.


Image


No matter how much shouting, waving or yelling I did he just refused to come down from the tree and continued to perch there, glaring at me. The bond between a hunter and their pet does not stretch far so by the time I had given in and started to walk back to the farm he suddenly teleported right next me, burst into flames and began to 'laugh.'


Image

"You should have seen your face!"


It seems that my Core Hound appears to be nothing but a troublemaker. He likes to be as difficult as possible. Maybe it's because he has two heads and they're both conspiring against me. Either way, after all this time I've just named him Trouble. He was apparently so delighted to be named after 4 years that as I jumped onto a fence he leapt right on top of me and decided to surprise me with a very intense 'hug'.


Image

It's either a hug or I'm being strangled..


As of today I can't really say our bond has strengthened but I'm definitely going to keep him... on the grounds that every time I get him out I never have my back to him once :lol: .

Aww, that's adorable! :3 I sorta just did the same thing tonight, except I set free a ton of ones that I haven't used in forever and saw no real reason to keep. Some were duplicates (or triplicates), others were originally just like "why not?" tames that I never bonded with. There were a handful I was going to let loose but couldn't quite pull the trigger, so I'm probably going to do what you did and run around with them a bit to see if there's something there. :)

Anyway, I think Trouble is awesome and I'm glad you're keeping him! He sounds like a feisty fella.

@Rhyela It's kinda sad because a lot of pets I have stored away are challenge tames or rares and everytime I think of releasing them I remember all the trouble I went to to get them. Such as my Gondria, it took months for me to finally find her and I was over the moon the day I finally got her but we've just never bonded. Everytime I get her out over the years I always run around with her for a bit then feel sad and end up keeping her :lol:. It's like a final test, my Ban'thalos and most of my MF spiders didn't pass... and then sometimes I'll release them and end up wanting them back again!! (Ooo that just reminded me I need to post my Azerre story after re-taming him for the 3rd time :oops: )

@Tårnfalk I have a bad habit of going back to being a lurker and not posting at all then suddenly popping up again and posting a billion times at once :lol: I'm glad you like them! :hug:


I apparently flew on my Rylak, Hex, today. He was very surprised:

And my hunter was very nonchalant about it. :lol:

It was actually just the flight master from Everbloom Wilds but everytime I see a green rylak I'm like that's my baby!! :lol:

He was called Rags for a bit then it changed to Nettle and now I've finally settled on Hex! He doesn't look too happy at all, perhaps I should have used a saddle...

I have sort of officially quit WoW since I've been finding it too addictive.

Here is a picture of my raptor Lanbaoshi I've been saving though:
