The Random Pet Challenge
The Random Pet Challenge is a fun way for hunters to try out and perhaps bond with pets/families they wouldn't normally have tamed. You, the hunter, give me your character's relevant information and from that I will assign you a randomly determined pet. You then go find this pet, tame it, test it, maybe take some screen shots, and then post a review of the pet and your experiences. Thus helping other hunters interested in that pet skin or pet family to get a better idea of what the pet is like or capable of.
How To Participate
To sign up for a random pet, post in this topic and give me your hunter's name, their level, if they can/want to tame exotics, and any specific pet families you really really can't stand or have way too many of.
NOTE: Please understand that the more restrictions you place in the last section, the less "random" your assigned pet will be and how much harder it is for me to roll you a pet.
How It Works
Once you have given me your hunter's information I will use either /roll or the online D&D dice (they have an option to input whatever number to roll) to randomly determine your assigned pet. I'll roll first for which family (excluding your restrictions and all exotics if so desired) and then roll again for which skin within the family, taking into consideration the level of your hunter. Spirit Beasts are automatically excluded from all rolls, and if I roll a rare only skin or a rare is the only mob available for your level, I will post that one along with another randomly rolled alternative. The same situation goes for if I roll an instance only skin, such as Chromaggus, and it would be hard for you to get to on your own.
Now that you have your assigned pet, use the link to find out where to get this pet and go tame it. Spend some time with it, get to know it by doing some of the following ideas:
- Name it
- Do some dailies
- Stare at it
- Go farming
- Run a dungeon
- Watch it swim
- Do a battleground
- Take some screenshots
NOTE: If I roll a pet that you currently have or have had in the past, please write a review on it anyway; if it's a pet you already love, why not share it with us? Also, I do not go and look up stables, these are time consuming as it is, I don't have the time to check out everyone's stables so I ask that you please give the report anyway, and then ask for a reroll.
After you've gotten to know your pet a little better and have decided to keep them or release them, please come back and tell us about your experience. Report the results of any experiments you did, if you liked the pet or not and why, say if you would keep this pet or tame another pet of the same family. Other ideas of what to report your thoughts on:
- Sound effects
- Food requirements
- Tanking ability
- DPS output
- Pet family abilities
NOTE: If you would like another roll once you're done the report for the first one, please use the full request format (name, level, exotics, restrictions). That way I don't have to sift through posts to find your original request.
Rares I Have by Cialbi
In this new section you can put down any unique rares you have tamed that you wouldn't mind writing a review about. Or if you are currently camping Aotona/<insert rare name here> and would tame her/it regardless, you could probably put those in this section too. This extra section would be completely optional, and you would only put a rare in this category if you were willing to write a report on them. This way, people can see other hunters' opinions on the very rare pets before they go and spend hours/days/weeks camping them.
NOTE: As mentioned before this is completely optional!Cialbi wrote:Name: Cialbi
Restrictions: No monkeys or red bats
Rares I Have: Arcturis, Albino Eyegouger, The Razza, Grubthor, Zora
Thanks for reading and I hope you have fun!
