I'm so bummed and I have no one to blame but myself.
I want to collect all the battle pets, but I'm so bad at leveling that I procrastinated just a little too long and have missed my chance at the Snowy Owl in Winterspring.
This wild pet only spawns during the winter - and I just figured that since the easter/spring event hasn't happened yet that I had another week or so to get it. I figured wrong.
Last night I rushed out to Winterspring after our guild event with the hope of capturing this level 17-18 creature with my sad little team of level 16, 15 and 14. I flew into Everlook and saw a level 17 Anodized Robo Cub nearby - let's try my team against this, I thought!
I won! I couldn't believe it. I have no idea how that happened! I quickly switched him in for the level 14, healed everyone up and flew around Winterspring...
...for about 20 minutes. Then I whispered Doob from Warcraft Pets asking if I missed the owl. He confirmed my fear - he's been hearing the same, that the owls are gone for the year. Confirmation from a GM says that Azerothian winter is from November 1st through the last day of February.
*sigh* Oh well, I'm sure I'll have a better team by next November. I still need to level at least one battle pet to 25 so I can uncrate the Peddlefeet that Starre gave me for Valentine's day.
Dang it, Barla!!
My favorite hunter pet is Elvis, my Ironhide Devilsaur (okay, I have several favorites). I've been wanting to mog something to match him and this is what I've come up with:
Chest: Renegade Chestguard
Waist: Necrogenic Belt
Gloves: Renegade Gauntlets
Legs: Renegade Leggings
Boots: Tsunami Boots
Gun: Consortium Blaster
Tonight, Spectacular Death is running Blackwing Descent! Fingers crossed that my Spaulders of the Scarred Lady drop (oh, and that I win them)!!
