OK, my respect for avid pet battlers/levellers has just sort of tripled over the last week whilst doing these achievements. I just want to crawl into a hole and never ever come back out! I think the hardest part is that I simply do not have enough pets high enough to do some of these battles, so my kills are very messy and not at all what you would call – solid?
Flying by the seat of my pants comes to mind quite often, however I have conquered the Pandaland trainers!
Some of them were pretty easy, others were so RNG dependant that I was losing my calm quite significantly. Especially on Aki, one of her pets on one attempt crit mine for its full health. Dead. One Shot. Unhappy!
I did start to use lower level pets on some of the tamers here, anything from about 22 upwards on some fights, just to get them a little xp, every little bit counts I guess! I was so happy to finally have Tamed Azeroth as well! Pretty sure this got me a title of “Tamer”, I probably won’t ever use it but it is nice to know it is there. Maybe I should start randomizing my titles every day and just get some happening in rotation.
Aki also chose me – I feel very special, however I have a feeling she chooses whoever comes along her neck of the woods. Once you go and hand in the quest for the Panda land trainers you get 2 more give to you which I thought might take me a while. The Pandaren Spirit Tamer didn’t take me long at all, I managed to down all 4 mobs quite quickly; the Thundering Pandaren Spirit requiring a few frustrating attempts, but ultimately he fell to my pets in a battle of epic proportions.
Once again I didn’t take any pictures or make any notes about the combinations I used. I feel really awful about that as it could have helped some people out.
I know that I have a roster of pets I seem to use constantly as follows:
- Anubasith Idol
- Unborn Val’kyr
- Alpine Foxling Kit
- Iron Starlette
- Lil Tarecgosa
- Onyxian Whelping
- Rapana Whelk
- Dancing Water Skimmer.
- Gilnean Raven
- Fel Flame
They are pretty much mix and match for most fights, I tend to use some for just brute force when the “strats” just aren’t working and mostly they get me through depending on the mix needed. Like I said, they are not pretty battles and I think some people would be surprised I can make it work, but that is part of the fun of the system imho.
