Re: The Rehoming Room

I hate Lock-knee-hack, it's the stupidest spirit beast ever and it's dumb with it's moonfire face and it's wasp waist and it's freakish sound files that always make me doubletake when I find someone using it in a battleground. (No, really, nothing liking minding your own business when suddenly RAWWW...

It's So Hideous-- Wait

I have always had a problem with carrion birds. Not that I dislike them-- far from it! Vultures are one of my favorite real-life birds, and I've always wanted to extend that favoritism to their in-game counterpart. But even though I've been staring at them since my first baby druid crawled out of th...

I nominate this for "Thread of the Year."

Grats on tames! ...I think. It's hard to tell how much post-Vegas-wedding regret might be involved.

Re: The Rehoming Room

Reverse-rehoming story (because I don't know if my Secret Santa lurks about here): Some weeks ago after I snagged myself a Skoll I did a /who of Storm Peaks to see if there might be other rare-hunters interested in his timer info. All I turned up was one Hunter, who said he was only particularly int...

Re: How to deal with "Rare Hunter" guildies?

Saying you CAN'T leave is what's going to enable him to continue griefling you in any way he can come up with. Pretty much the first rule of abuse is that it can only persist if the victim believes they can't escape/leave. (Aside: your assertion that the other jerks in the guild are tolerable becaus...

Re: Noah/Wain: Please give us a pet from Archeology..

The sanest way I can think of pulling this off is make it so Archaeologists can dig up some kind of artifact that summons a wild, angry <insert tameable beast> that attacks and can be killed or tamed. Maybe give it a cooldown-- say, once a day-- and/or make it possible for it to summon a few differe...

Re: Do you do this?

I was about to say "no", but then I remembered all the times I've been stuck questing underwater for a bit and would whip out my nether ray just because I figured it'd be the least annoyed by the prospect of swimming. Sometimes the ravager. I think it's at least partially motivated by some pets miss...

Taming A Particularly Hot Spider (Outrageously Long)

I have always had a bit of a fond spot in my heart for spiders. They're not my first true love-- that goes to the handsome critter doubling as my avatar-- but I have a history with them. Well, if "I tamed one back when I was flirting with being a night elf, and it was my AWESOME BUDDY, and then I ro...

Lol, all these funny stories make me want to go out and tame a spider now; but I'd never use it since my "spider" of choice is Huckleberry my silithid. You know, I was having that exact same problem! Who needs a stinkin' SPIDER when I have Thrakkzoth, genius extraordinaire, master tactician, and th...

Re: Pet Names, how did you pick them

I'm fond of smashing random sounds together until I get something I like. My first hunter named all pets that way: Kirachi, Shikere, Lirlelnan, etc. The downside to that approach is that the best way to WRITE a sound using the English alphabet may not be the best way to READ it (ex: "Shikere" is pro...

Re: Etiquette Question: Freshly-Tamed Rare

Putting it away immediately suggests we should be shameful or feel guilty that we got the rarespawn, and we shouldn't be. This is, I assure you, the utter opposite of what I could even be trying to imply. (I don't think I was trying to imply anything in the first place. Takes too many braincells, m...

Etiquette Question: Freshly-Tamed Rare

If a hunter has just tamed a rarespawn, should they leave the pet out at their side while they're there or quickly put the pet away? If you leave the pet out while you're standing there (possibly for a little bit as you excitedly tell all your friends that you finally caught it) it's basically an in...

Less than a week of on-again, off-again, "well I guess the Storm Peaks are right over there, I can mosey on over" looking. I was about to go to bed, and didn't particularly want to look-- yeah, prime-time on a weekend is TOTALLY the least-camped time, I'm sure I'll have no problem finding Skoll now ...

Re: Skoll Tips- Please Help!

Depending on how religiously you clear out your creaturecache file, you might consider clearing it once, logging on on your hunter WITHOUT npcscan turned on, pulling all your rarespawns out of the stables, then relogging to turn npcscan on. Alternatively, if you have no reason to keep scanning for t...

Re: Obligatory "Where are you, rare pets?" Magic Luck Thread

Skoll, if you're going to taunt me by hiding, at least go fling yourself in front of that Draenei hunter I ran into today. Hiding from ALL of us is just rude.

PS. I started up a bet with Thrakkzoth today. Do you really want a silithid to win a bet? Do you really?
