Battle Pet Mayhem

minfernalOk it’s been quite a long time since I’ve posted, and obviously I haven’t done the cooking thing like I planned 😛

BUT I have been wanting to write more, and so here goes!

I had kinda stopped playing as much (just not AS much lol) but then one night decided to look through my achievements and figured it was time to grab a few more.

I decided on collecting more battle pets since I was already so close to getting Eastern Kingdoms Tamer, Pandaria Safari, Eastern Kingdoms Safari and Kalimdor Safari (I was only missing a few pets each).

After getting those I would also end up getting World Safari and the Zookeeper title! Which would be awesome for my hunter 🙂

So I figured, those would be some easy (and fun) achievement points!

And I love traveling and seeing the world anyways 🙂

Oh my gosh was I wrong! I picked everything up in pretty quick order except for the Baby Ape and a Minfernal.

Now, just to explain something that I didn’t previously know: some battle pets can only be caught during specific weather, and the Baby Ape was one of them. The Sand Kitten was another, but I got lucky with that one and got a sandstorm almost right away. I needed it to rain on an island in Stranglethorn for the ape.

However, for being a tropical jungle, Stranglethorn really didn’t want to rain so that I could nab my Baby Ape. Ever.

It took almost two weeks of having a toon parked in the jungle and random checking for rain to get one. BUT I was really lucky and happened to get a rare one, so I was good to go for that pet!

The Minfernal was an entirely different matter.

Minfernals are apparently extremely rare spawns. People tout that there’s special tactics to getting them, but I don’t believe any of them. I tried them all. I think it’s coincidence.

How I got mine? Couldn’t sleep one night and got up around 1AM (4AM server time) and low and behold, the Minfernal was on my map! Poor quality of course, but I had a Flawless Elemental Battle Stone so I didn’t care 🙂

I have a Rare Minfernal!


Another note to add to this process: there are also two season specific battle pets –  the Snowy Owl and the Qiraji Guardling. The owl spawns during the winter, and the Guardling during the summer. I had previously gotten the owl, and I still had just a couple weeks left to try for the Guardling for the achievement before next year. Lucky for me!

So that was my adventure of the month! And I feel a job well done 🙂




This isn’t related to cooking…. but I finally became exalted with Timbermaw tonight!

Which means I finally go The Diplomat title 🙂

I have been meaning to for a long time… and not that it took me the entire time to do it, it wasn’t a bad grind. It’s just that it’s so far away form everything else I am doing that I hadn’t gotten around to it yet.

I had worked to Revered with alts for the Agility enchant for my BoAs, but hadn’t worked on this rep for my main yet.

But, with hitting Exalted with Golden Lotus and Shado-Pan recently and finally getting The Exalted title, I felt a need to continue with my reps!

So, cheers to Timbermaw Exalted, let’s see what’s next…
