I was discussing pets in guild the other day, and mentioned that I was going to start chasing the achievements for taming/collecting etc.  I never really got into it originally with the amount of time needed to devote to the levelling, however recently I have remembered that battling doesn’t take a huge amount of time and is at least a bit of a challenge.

The celestial tournament was what I had my sights set on, but given most of the strats call for pets I simply either didn’t have or were level 1- it was time to bite the bullet. Celestial tournament is the end goal  – to reach that I needed to get more pets to 25, to do that I needed my Safari hat (and charms) and that meant completing the Tamer achievements for the world.

Before I began my mission though Antheriel and Limpywtf caught up with me in Dalaran and donated so many pets to me that I am still losing my mind over it. They were all duplicates for them but for me it was an almost spiritual level event.  So many of them will be useful when I get the levelled and I really just cannot express how grateful I am too them. Nelly sat on vents with me and went trough all her duplicates while Limpywtf just added pets to the bank for me to run off with if I was missing them (I missed out on Syd the Squid as I couldn’t remove anything else for the day and by the time I got back the next day he was gone).

Abyssius is one I want to level because he is so gorgeous looking!

The Sandling and Imp are very cool looking but then the Firewing suits my whole fire mage look so perfectly that I feel such a stunning creature should be levelled asap. See, look how fiery and gorgeous she is! Just look!

The featured image for this post is the Sunfire Kaliri which was also lovingly donated, but it is also very theme appropriate for my fire mage – I just can’t decide between the above Firewing or the Kaliri.

Neither Nelly or myself could pronounce Cyrukh – so I feel I should change his name to Nelly.  I always like to change the names of pets to the characters of the people that game them to me; it helps remind me of the donation and the history of each pet, but this lot is going to be a massive struggle I think.  I can’t come up with that many variants 😀

The whelping will be added to my long list of dragons requiring levelling – since I am obsessed with Dragons I feel it is only appropriate that I level every single one I get my hands on.  Such hard work though!

The Sister is absolutely gorgeous – my very own mini succubus.  She even makes the whip noises and I simply cannot describe how much I adore this pet. I have always laughed about the whole warlock wanting to me mages thing – but imho mages should – in all honesty – be able to have pets – we are masters of the arcane, dammnit! – there should be a spec dedicated entirely to summoning creatures/elemental beings to do our damage during fights.

Of course the last little cutie was this little fella.  OMG look at those little furry feet, and the horns! GAH!  I like the Talbuk creature so this is just fun to have, I really wish we could have more than 1 pet running around with us – like a pet battle group but always around. Obviously that would be pretty intensive on the game if all of us did that, but I can have dreams right?!

Not only that but Antheriel also emailed me her noes about the Celestial tournament, all her plans/groups and tactics etc.  I cannot wait to get cracking on that section of Pandaria. I am sure her notes will help me through!

I cannot thank both Antheriel or Limpywtf enough for the amount of pets they gave me.  I owe them so much love and if I could have hugged them in real life I would! A blog post hardly seems like good enough payment for the joy. As I assured Nelly, they are going to a very loving home who will ensure they are looked after. I feel so very lucky!
