I am actually a little surprised that I have so many. I just wish I was as keen on levelling them as collecting.
Lominari asked me how many pets I actually had and I discovered it was only 597 – with an achievement for 600 I decided to go and hunt some down.
After having run Trial of the Crusader in 25 man heroic and having a pet drop whilst chasing argent tourney seals we decided to do ICC 25 man heroic and see if any would drop. Nope.
So I decided I would just hunt some down the old fashioned way. Thanks to Warcraft pets I figured out where I would find the most amount of battle pets I had left to collect.
My 600th by pure random chance was a lovely blue pet! I get so few blues so it was very nice to see, I seem to have a huge amount of grey quality ones!!
This goes well with the Legion achievement I got the other day when doing world quests. I had spent (the previous day) about an hour riding around Felsoul Hold killing the spiders for the last one to spawn and had given up.
Whilst with Lominari (of course), we happen to stumble across the last little bugger!! You have to kill the Thornclaw Broodling as they share a spawn timer with the Vicious Broodling (which is always a rare quality!). But this Vicious one was sitting there doing nothing, all alone. Just waiting to be scooped up!!
We also won’t discuss how Lominari managed to stumble across the rug needed for the Dust Bunny pet as well, then asked me what it was about. This happened a couple of days after I finally managed to get it (2 weeks in total with checking all the points in Dalaran for the rug whenever I was nearby and overtime I logged on and before I logged off). He just stumbled on it…..
The guy has more luck than anyone should have!!
