Re: 8.3 PTR General Content

At least the Alliance got a good race. Poor Horde got creepy little furry goblins that exist purely on memes and one director's weird interests. Boomer Mechagnomes get awesome racials, a crazy cool mount, and decent heritage armor, not to mention the extremely lewd sexual innuendos they have with t...

A special and kinda annoying pet trick

I don't recall seing a post about this, though I may have missed one. Now that the raid I'm in has heroic Eternal Palace pretty much on farm, I can get away with not having an 'optimum' pet along with me. So I've been switching out who I bring along each week for most fights, just for some variety. ...

Re: The 2 main pet that you choose

I'm debating whether or not to do the death-runs to Teldrassil to tame an owl as Horde. If I do, I'll want to keep it forever, since it was a pretty uncommon pet for Horde hunters back in the day.

Re: Oondasta

I thought he respawned relatively quickly as of some patch not too far back. Either that, or I just got lucky. When I arrived at his spawn point, the unattackable Troll was there cowering, implying that Oondasta had recently been killed or tamed. It was, perhaps, 10 minutes before Oondasta spawned a...

Re: Tiny Bufo in 8.1.5!

I tend to swap out two of my active pets every week, just for the heck of it. I swapped Bufo into one slot last night before raid time and was pleasantly surprised to see he's still tiny. Or that he's tiny again. I hadn't taken him out of the stable for rather a long time. I'm sure it won't last, bu...

Re: Hunter Pets and Island Expeditions

To me, it sounds like you just got unlucky and ended up with a couple jerks. I tend to leave growl on for Island pugs, but if it looks like there's a competent tank, I'll turn it off. That's pretty rare, though. I've run into too many 'tanks' who run in, do some sort of aoe, then run off to grab mor...

Re: 8.1 Live Tames

When I found out a particular beast was going to be tameable in 8.1, I decided I really wanted to tame one, though doing so meant having to let someone else go to free up a stable slot. It wasn't a fancy, new or particularly special beast, but it stirred up memories from leveling Horde alts for the ...

Re: Pardon a Tallstrider Day!

And now, with the addition of abilities for every pet and re-inclusion of differing attack speeds, I figured it was as good a tame as ever! So here he is again at my side, in all of his ornery glory: Peck! Dangit. I'm gonna have to get a screenshot of my tallstrider when I get home, but I couldn't ...

Re: Some pets have unique attack speeds again -Broken Tooth

During a recent Mythrax fight in Uldir, I started to wonder about some pets recently getting their faster/slower attack speeds back. As I suspect is the practice in most raids, mine has ranged (1 mage and 2 hunters) knocking ranged people out of the Oblivion Spheres. Generally, whichever of us is cl...

Re: Why is there not widespread freaking out over bloodbeast

I'm definitely looking forward to it. Crawgs are creepy, kinda disturbing lil things, but for some strange reason I kind of like them. The trick'll be making stable space for one.

The ptr wowhead page for the book does have 'archaeology' in the icon name. I hope that's just because they're reusing that icon.

Re: 8.1 Beasts

I'm still on the fence when it comes to the new tallstrider model. I do think the legs are an improvement, but something about the rest of their bodies just seems kind of not-great to me. I can't really put my finger on what it is, though. Part of that may just be because I've had Peck (formerly Maz...

But if it'd been the other way around, it would have been okay? I'm sorry, but I'm getting kind of tired of everything being some kind of bias on Blizzard's part. It's getting to where I feel unwelcome on fan sites and blogs, just because I prefer to play Tauren. Why would it be ok? It absolutely w...

Re: Warfront rares reset timers

Two weeks. One week that the Horde has the scenario and the Alliance can do nothing, then almost another full week just for the Alliance to unlock the scenario. Meanwhile, the Horde had a few days where they could take a fresh 120 and get them an almost full set of 340 gear. 340 is the ilvl of Myth...

Re: Warfront rares reset timers

Well, I meant more the guaranteed 370 piece the Horde gets from the scenario, as opposed to the smallish chance from a world boss that the Alliance could access. And the ability for the Horde to farm 340 pieces, which is not the greatest exactly, but helpful especially for getting alts geared up fa...

Re: Petopia needs big updating

Sometimes a particular beast will get mis-categorized, either due to human error, or a change since they were first datamined and added to Petopia's lists. It'd be helpful if you could provide which particular pet you found that was listed incorrectly. Wain is pretty diligent about keeping things up...

Re: Pets and Taloc

We poked at Heroic Taloc last night and I noticed the same problem. I swapped to my hermit crab pet after the first attempt, since he's a bit easier to see from across the room. In addition to just getting through the door itself, there seems to be an area just inside the door that he got hung up on...
