Pet Search - Lets help each other (server hop idea)

#1 Unread post by Teevo » Fri Apr 06, 2018 1:53 pm

Hello all, Teevo here (my hunter name is Teevii). I took some time away from the game, specifically my alts.. but long story short I am back and got my hunter to 110. I have been spending the past week working on getting my rare pets again now that we have way more space compared to when I last played at lev 90 (I had all of them at one point in time but had to condense due to limited space).

With that being said, it has gone really well due to the time and effort Ive put into it. But I know not everyone has the same amount of time to dedicate, yet love the pets just as much. Back when server hopping was easy, we could check several other server clusters to see if the pet was up on another server if it wasnt up on ours. Now the only way you can do that is if the group leader is actually in the same zone as you.

I thought it was atleast worth discussing to create a thread that would list current active players who are willing to help out other hunters and/or need help finding a rare pet by server swapping with them while in that same zone to check and see if the rare is up on their end.

The person assisting can help with checking just 1 spawn, or maybe they have time to help you with several. Maybe you create a mutually beneficial working tandem where you help each other out cause youre both looking for different rares. Or maybe youre like me and have done the work, but are still willing to help. Theres no right or wrong answer, any & all help would be appreciated.

Curious on everyones interest in this. Admins feel free to correct me if this is already being discussed in another thread. Let me know what you guys think!

Heres the most current list of data centers I could find, looks to be up to 13 different server clusters we can hop to if we get atleast 1 person from each:

Post in this thread if you're looking for a particular rare. People can keep an eye out for it for you. Or if they see a particularly rare spawn, they may check the thread to see if anyone is looking for it.

I'm happy to help. I have a 110 hunter on Earthen Ring, which is a pretty dead server. I often see spirit beasts and such just hanging around waiting.

Thanks for fixing the link Xota.

However I think that thread (while very helpful) is geared more towards rare spawn info (locations, respawn time, etc).

What I'm looking at doing is literally making a list of active Hunters (or their alts) who would be willing to help other hunters find a rare pet they are having a tough time with. These hunters know where and what they're looking for, but want to be able to look on another server - specifically on another data center cluster.. whether due to overpopulation, competitive camping, or simply no luck ever having that rare be up.

I obviously haven't received much interest thusfar, granted I did just post this idea yesterday.. but I think I'll atleast start the thread and see the number of willing players. This community has always been very helpful, I don't see why most of us wouldn't be willing to invite someone to a group and fly to a certain zone for 2-10min of their time.

To me this seems a bit different than the other thread and I think it's a good idea
