Random Pet Challenge: Stepping Out of the Box!

Unread post by Acherontia » Thu Jul 22, 2010 6:14 pm

Revived for the 25-stable slot crowd!

We all know that there's lots of hunters out there roaming around looking for their perfect pet. But how many pets are out there that you, yourself, would never even notice?

I challenge those of you who have a free stable slot (and I know that narrows it down :P ) to join this Challenge.

How it works:

You sign up here! SPECIFY whether you have a BM spec. I'll /roll a number for pet family and /roll another for a skin (numbered for the number of each in each family). I will list the pet you are to tame. You then go and tame the pet. If I roll a unique/rare, such as Araga or OCJ, I will roll again, and list both--you can check for the unique before taming the average mob, if you like. If I get an exotic for a non-BM hunter of course I'll roll again! You'll wind up with an utterly random pet to tame, perhaps something you've never looked twice at.

What you do:

You find and tame the mob I roll for you. Then you spend at least one day with this pet--test it if you like! Some ideas:

* Try tanking an 80 elite with your pet
* Level it a level or two
* Do a heroic
* Do a battleground
* Check the pet out in different lightings
* Check out swimming and possibly levitate animations (if any)
* Get a screenshot of you and your oddly fitting or entirely mismatching pet!

Then, write a review here of the pet!

Your Review:

* Results of any tests (including the above) that you might do. Mention what you think of the pets' model, skin, animations, sound effects, family skill etc. How convenient (or annoying) are their food requirements? Will you keep the pet, or consider another from the same family in the future? Did you learn anything hunter-ey from this pet?

I'll be doing this one myself once I've got a few takers. If you're interested, post here with just these 2 pieces of info:

* Your Name
* Are you BM?

If I roll a pet you've already tamed or currently have, just ask for a re-roll :lol:
Thanks for reading, and I'm looking forward to seeing the results of this Random Pet exercise :D

It sounds like a lot of fun! I just need to see if I can clear a stable slot. Go ahead and give me one to try. :)

I'm bm btw.

Actually, I'll be doing this on Tael, a draenei Hunter. SV specced, but I think I can get by.

Ok by you, Acher?

Hm, ok, I'll play. =) Surv/BM spec, but try not to get anything exotic as I already have a stable full of exotics already.

I think you should require that the people that have to tame a pet should post a picture of them with their new pet.

So far this pet and I get along about as well as peanut butter and steak. The little stinker knocked me down twice during taming, and I swear he's plotting to eat me.

Offhand I noticed his dash animation makes me think "zoomie"
