Azeroth Exotic Animals
Oops, haven’t posted in a while.
I was asked by my friend who had not completed the Master Hunter quests if I could help him complete the King Bangalash stage of the chain. Since I was getting annoyed at the aggro radius of Bloodsail pirates onboard their ships, I decided to go and help him out. Since both of us are hunters, we started talking about how cool it would be to have Bangalash as a pet.
Then it hit me. I had not taken a second pet since I got my rare Duskstalker at level 10. The only other times I had tamed other pets was taming a Ghostpaw Alpha and an Elder Ashenvale Bear to get Bite 4 and Claw 4. I know you must be thinking “A hunter who doesn’t tame pets for skills? Does this guy even know how to play a hunter?” I had not taken pet skills as a priority as playing a hunter. Why? I was too busy exploring Azeroth itself and questing. I was pretty happy with my pet anyway; there was no pressing need to change it.
But then Bangalash changed it all. After taming him, I felt like as if I were level 10 again. How cool it was to learn Dash 2 and find out how fast cats can be!! And then I realized (a second time because I’ve forgotten since level 10) that a Duskstalker can learn Prowl. So then I decided to track down an Elder Shadowmaw Panther to learn the skill. The problem is, I still haven’t been able to learn it after taming it. I’m not sure what’s going on because I’ve gone around killing at least 10 mobs with it without being able to learn anything from it when it should normally take 2 mobs. If anyone knows what’s going on, feel free to let me know that I’m an idiot.
It’s funny how Bangalash looks like my Striped Frostsaber mount though.
The next day, I got so excited after taming Bangalash that I decided to look for a suitable name for him. After wiki-ing white tigers, dubbed royal Bengal tigers (and learning that they’re actually normal Bengal tigers with a recessive gene), I decided to name him Mohan, after the first of tamed royal Bengal tigers.
Being the compulsive wiki browser that I am, I started looking at odd colors of various animals, such as the white lion, black tiger, and blue tiger. They are actually much like Sian-Rotam, the infamous ghostly Shadowclaw, and Moonstalkers. It doesn’t stop there! There’s still the rare raptor mob Takk the Leaper, black lion Humar the Pridelord, and albino gorilla Ukh’loc. How cool would it be to tame all these very unique looking animals? Blizzard definitely did not make up all these animal colors out of the blue. They are very real!
Oh, I forgot to mention I named my Duskstalker Vornskr…because I wanted it to be vicious even though it doesn’t look like one.
As a last note, thanks to Kestrel for linking to Ranger’s Bow. I noticed a spike in the site views and was wondering how that happened, especially since I didn’t make a post…:-P
