A Tale of Two Hunters and PvP Pet Battles the Easy Way

catfluxWell see, this is what happens when servers are down. I talk too much. Posting is ALWAYS preferable to cleaning.

Navi made a comment that made me feel sort of guilty. Sasche became a Darkspear Revolutionary almost as soon as it was available. I figured people would be doing it daytime since it was new. Navi said it would be interesting to see how Battlefield Barrens looked from the Alliance perspective … um … I wasn’t even planning on doing it with Cat, shame on me. Poor Cat.

There is a reason, the few scenarios Cat’s done have all turned into a nightmare. There has been a lot of willy-nilly running around aggroing everything. I don’t know what that’s about. One time I was sure the person had stepped away for a moment and their cat might have jumped on the keyboard. It was the only explanation that made sense. I’m not sure if it’s the time of day or Cat is just unlucky, unlike Sasche. But Navi is right, Cat should get to see her side of the story. It’s the weekend, surely people are queuing. Yep, they were and off we went.

Oh yay! A Hunter, with a bear! Blood in the Snow should go fine! And a Shaman, let’s get this done! The Hunter was fine and I’m glad they were there. The Shaman commenced with telling the Hunter to take out a tanking pet. Hunter responded that the bear was their tanking pet. Shaman told them they needed to take out their Turtle, Hunter said, don’t have one. Shaman responded with a rude little acronym that implied extreme stupidity on the Hunter’s part. The Hunter remained calm and dignified throughout.

Then the Shaman kept running off ahead on their own, trying to avoid everything but the objectives, which somehow always turned into a blood bath from patrols. Frequent shouts of, “WTF!” could be seen as once again the Shaman was dead. As we got to the last part it became clear the Shaman just planned on trying to down the Zandalari leader and ignore everything else, when it was a lot easier killing everything else and then kill him. The Hunter and I finished it off, Hunter said ty and I think the Shaman might have been dead again.

So, on to the Dark Heart of Pandaria. A Hunter and a Mage, sounds good, wait … what? They’re dead already … what? Okay, I think it would be better if we get the little ones first cause … dead again. The Hunter had some sort of wolf who unfortunately seemed to have a compelling desire to end it all … a death wish … which was fulfilled repeatedly.

Let’s have another go. Okay, this might take a while. Once we got to the last boss I waited to see if the Hunter would send his pet. Nope, I guess it’s once more unto the breach for me. Okay, now we’re all dead. I’d been trying to communicate with no luck, maybe they don’t speak English. It could happen I guess. When we got back I put down a Banquet. They ate and one said, ty. Okay, someone’s there.

With a rousing battle cry something like, “We’re coming for you, you big dummy! Be afraid, be very afraid!” I don’t know, I thought it might rouse them to action. We attacked! It was an ugly mess of me trying to melee the boss without stepping in the Blood of Y’Shaarj that was freaking everywhere by now. My comrades were running back and forth to stand in the orbs. Yes, it was a typical Cat experience. But done. Thank Elune.

But then I had a eureka moment! These same people are doing pet PvP battles! Right now! I just know it! Here’s my chance!

And they were.

Merciless Pet Brawler Done!

Experienced Pet Brawler Done!

My pet Reacher was right, do them on the weekends. Easy PvP Pet Battles.

And Navi was right, if I hadn’t done these quests Alliance side, I would never have done Gathering Intelligence. I would have missed it. I was changed into what looks like a little Fluxfire Feline who had to stealth around right in front of Org looking for important intelligence. When my mission was complete I changed to fight form. Imagine my delight when I became a Flying Fluxfire able to fly around over the heads of the enemy.

I spent quite a bit of time flying around, hurling insults down at them, pelting them with Deeprun Rat Kabobs so they’d know the Alliance had prevailed! So worth it.

So that’s me up there, The Dreadful Deathkitten of Doom. Garrosh?

Be afraid.

  1. This tickled me: it’s not enough to know when leets play, but when the noobs do too!

  2. Scenarios seem to bring out the worse in people. Did one on Sprout, where she as Holy was doing almost double the damage of a similarly geared mage whilst healing Mr Harpy’s attempts to aoe all things at once.

    Bags the flying cat for Gnomish Druid flight form!!! Would totally make sense. Bearform would be a slightly larger version of the robo bear from Winterspring, catform would be a non flying version of the aforementioned flying cat and “treeform” could be a Tiny Harvesteresque affair with a few leaves thrown on for local colour.

    • I felt like parents had gone shopping and told their kids, here, occupy yourselves with scenarios while we’re gone. LOL!

      I really did fly around forever, I didn’t want to let go of my flying cat form and if there were a flying tree form I think I’d respec just to get it!

    • I sometimes wonder if it’s because you aren’t guaranteed the usual set up with the obvious tank, the obvious healer and the obvious DPS who only have to concern themselves with killing crap. It’s not “normal,” which pushes ’em off center. They have to do things differently, which makes ’em crankier. Then they die because you totally aren’t guaranteed a healer in the group at all, and that makes ’em mad.

      • Cat always seems to get paired with two casters and they always wait to attack until she does, don’t know why. Maybe they think she’ll spring into bear form, lol.

        Maybe that’s it, since I’m always alone I never notice the lack of a healer, seems normal.

        • When playing a caster defensively in groups, you DEFINITELY want to wait until melee engages – whether said melee goes in bear, cat or even in tree form for the lolz. Theoretically, the melee DPS can take more hits than the clothie can. Hopefully, they can keep aggro too, so that said casters don’t have to run like hell, because it’s really hard to cast spells that require you to stand still when you do that.

        • I should have said Hunters, I’m always hopeful they’ll have a tank pet and help me out. Oh boy! Can I ever hold aggro, lol! It’s the staying alive with it that’s the hard part. Cat feels so squishy this expac.

  3. I wish someone would write it up so I could read it since I will likely NEVER do it on alliance! OMG I can’t believe I inspired you to do alliance things, what the hell? 🙂

    • I wish I had paid more attention but my husband kept coming in and out talking to me and I didn’t go “whoa” now this is different until I got to be a fluxfire, lol.

    • Roo the Hunter Says:

      Hoot mon! N’ver tel’ the lossie anythin’ ‘less ye wan’ her doin’ it.

      sta’ froosty…


    • I don’t know if I’ll ever do a full write up, but there was one major thing that I noticed:

      So you’ve met Vol’jin and the others at the tower near Razor Hill. When you talk to him, the text indicates that the “stench” of the camp is “intolerable.” As Alliance, you see a bazillion flies around the campfire, and presumably (if you went into Razor Hill proper) there as well.

      Horde? Na-da. No stench, no flies.

      I may not notice the stench if I’ve become used to it (or am Forsaken so can’t smell anything anymore anyway), but flies? C’mon! I’D SEE THOSE.

      • LOL! I need to get better contacts, I’m missing all this!

      • Yes! That was … well, it kinda pissed me off, to be honest. And if it was trying to push me towards the Alliance, well … it did the opposite.

        • I don’t think it was trying to push you towards the Alliance.

          I wrote in a comment on another blog that “it has the implication that trolls (which are really all that you see at the tower, except for Chen Stormstout) are a stinky, dirty and accordingly lesser people to the Alliance, who apparently bathe enough to stink a little less.”

          Perhaps Blizz just wants to say that even with Garrosh making the Horde seem all evil and bad to the world, the Alliance have a demon within themselves.

        • Tome, me lossie, quit’ takin’ oft the boots. The wee go’fers are dyin’ denna ye ken.

  4. You just never know what you’re going to get in a PUG but you make me want to try it on Alliance (although I said the same thing about the Shieldwall stuff). Hmm, this may turn into one of my flipside posts sometime. You’ve also given me some incentive to start my PVP battles though.

    • Everything’s a pug for me and I think I have more patience as a Warlock then a feral Druid. Sasche is probably not luckier just doesn’t impact her as much when things go south!

      It really was much easier getting a win over the weekend, wasn’t so demoralizing, lol!

  5. The quest was fun, but there’s no real story there and it’s .. well, it’s just that one quest.

    Obviously it’s a troll revolution thus a Horde problem, so it makes sense that the Horde side has a deeper story and longer questline, but I was still somewhat disappointed.

    Actually, that’s kinda been the case for me this whole expansion, thus my near-abandonment of my Alliance toons.

    • My problem is I do something once and pay attention and then whoever does it the next time just blows through it. I seem to suffer from “been there, done that” syndrome. This quest stood out because, oh I’m a teeny, tiny cat!

      Oh poor Alliance guys! My problem with this expac is it’s not very friendly to alts. I’m happy at low level and then think what they’d have to go through at 90. Kind of throws cold water on them and they retreat!

  6. […] Pet Battles, even with the Stunted Direhorn as a reward and Trainer title but after reading about Tome and Luxy‘s experiences lately, I’ve been convinced to at least try them again. In fact, […]
