Any mounts or pets I have on any of my other level 85s were purely accidental. I have never actually ‘tried’ to farm for any specific mounts or pets. That changes starting now. So I am working on a list of the pets I would like to have and what it takes to get them. A few are achievement rewards, which means collecting many more pets that I wouldn’t collect other than for the reward pet that I want.
The one thing I am NOT doing is purchasing any pets or mounts from the Blizzard Store. I think in the last four years I have given enough money to Blizzard for my subscription, server transfers and faction changes. So any pets or mounts I would like to get are available in game using only time and research.
Sea Pony– Woohoo! Got this one today on Ezdenia…now to put Calizari to work on her fishing…perfect way to get her started and get something more than stinky fish out of it!
Brilliant Kaliri– reward for collecting 125 companion pets
Celestial Dragon-reward for collecting 150 companion pets
Kirin Tor Familiar– reward for completing the Higher Learning Achievement
Green Winged Macaw-drops in The Deadmines off of the Defias Pirates…easy to solo at higher levels
Cockatiel– purchasable, an easy to get pet
Senegal– also easy to get, purchasable
Proto Drake Whelp– chance of getting from the Mysterious Egg which require Oracle rep.
Firefly– Zangarmarch drop
Horde Balloon– already got this since its an easy quest inside Orgrimmar
So in order to get all those, which isn’t much but in order to get them I need to collect quite a lot more pets and work on Oracle reputation as well. It should keep me busy until Mists is released.
Time Lost Proto Drake– can be camped in Storm Peaks…and I will be there..with a book probably or maybe reading other blogs
Green Proto Drake– a chance to drop from the Mysterious Egg once Oracle reputation is high enough
Not many, I just really would like a Proto Drake…not picky which one.
