Personal desission as I feel it holds to much violence, and focus on magic, demons , war etc. I like to see the pets though :)

Fair enough, to each their own! My favourite part of WoW is the pets/mounts/battle pets and all of the killing and everything is just fluff so I get what you mean :lol:

Thank you, couldn't wait to do these. :D I'm afraid this ones a bit long.

Bingpot and Dingbat, the Mechanostriders


After returning to WoW I decided to have a massive makeover of my stables. I am saying goodbye to many companions but I'm also looking to tame newer ones. Since I tamed Tipsy I've started looking for pets that are ... different and especially brightly coloured. If you told me a few months ago that this would end up with me taming two mechanostriders I'd have laughed in your face. I started playing WoW in 2011 as a Night Elf Hunter. I had a thing for collecting mounts so I had to get every Alliance race mount possible, even the mechanostriders which I absolutely despised. They just looked so stupid to me and worst of all they were machines - not real animals. :lol:

Fast forward to a few days ago I decide to give them a chance. A Mechanostrider as a pet? It's so stupid and weird to me still. And they are weird. They look. so. frickin'. weird. I can't express how weird it is having a Mechanostrider legging it after you all the time. Anyway, I felt obligated to tame Optimo purely because I love blue and red and he is blue and red. Optimo is a rare spawn in Loch Modan, where he occasionally pops up in a cave of mechanostriders and mechanical chickens. I knew from reading the WoWhead comments that I'd find him running around the cave. He wasn't there when I arrived so I popped Track Mechanicals on and had multiple heart attacks every time one of the dots moved a bit.

I honestly couldn't have positioned myself in a better camping spot. I was facing a wall where I could see down two paths and low and behold he spawns right in front of me and then runs around the corner, straight into my face and starts attacking! I don't think I've ever had a pet I wanted to tame run to me before. :lol:

Matching blue and red


In the cave the other Mechanostriders drop things called Small Dingbats which gave me the idea of calling him Dingbat.. but I just couldn't settle on it. Then a quote from one of my favourite TV shows popped into my head:


Image


So he is now christened as Bingpot. Which is the dumbest name ever and everyone who sees him probably thinks I'm a moron but it suits him, so there. He can be Bing for short at least.


Image

Bingpot the Mechanostrider


When I tamed Bingpot I honestly didn't think that I would keep him at all or even out for very long. I usually end up swapping most new pets back to Hex after a while. Mechanostriders have completely exceeded my expectations. They are just so much fun to have! It is so strange going in to battle with a colourful mechanical bird-chicken thing. You hardly ever see people with Mechanostriders either which makes them even more special. I doubted I would see them as an actual companion pet instead of a "joke" pet like seagulls or the sheep at least. I love him!


Image

Bingpot shows his colours


I loved Bingpot so much in fact, I decided to tame another Mechanostrider. This time the gorgeous/garish blue, yellow and purple one. The Sentient Mechanostrider. For some reason ever since I saw this pet I thought it was one of many? Like, I thought there would be loads of them all over Gnomeregan. Turns out it's actually a single pet that's kind of a challenge tame. I won't go in to to many details but you have to run all over the dungeon getting access cards until you get a rainbow coloured one which will open the door to the secret room (gnome bedrooms) where it's hidden.


Image

The secret room


If being talked to by a Sentient Mechanostrider doesn't make you instantly love this pet then I don't know what will. She appears to be standing on top of one of the beds and seems more than happy to meet you:



Image

Even if she does called you a fleshbag


Image

This is one of those challenge tames that baffles me as to how anyone worked it out


So obviously my second Mechanostrider had to be called Dingbat - or Ding for short. Ding and Bing make a wonderful pair, having two Mechanostrider instead of just one seems obligatory. They are both so comical it's like they're a duo act. Just watching them run along side you is funny enough on it's own and they have such peculiar little faces:


Image

Up close and personal


Image

Bumbling around together


I don't have much else to say about this pair but I've been using them constantly (even if one is secretly Hati shhh) and they've jumped up to my second favourite pet to use. I think everyone should try them at least once. Mechanical pets don't really fit with my character as I prefer hunters being more earthy/beasty but they're too fun that I don't care anymore. :lol:
So here are some final screenshots:

The pair get punted in to the air by Yetimus



Image

Sometimes they just stand in really random places, facing eachother...



Image

...or in opposite directions



Image

Staring at a ghost in bewilderment as it attacks them



Image

Dingbat stands on her tip-toes to try and console the angry ghost while Bingpot pecks him in a rather unfortunate area

[center]Just wanted to share some new pics of the striders. Still finding them incredibly amusing and can't get enough of their tendency to stand in weird places. Even beak to beak!
