#158 Starting my Journey as a Pet Trainer

A few days ago I started to get the collector’s itch. I thought that I was done collecting items in World of Warcraft when I got the 150 mount achievement and the Jade Kit String the day patch 5.1 went live.

It is one of my favorite mounts

But the need to collect returned, but with no new mount achievements that offers rare and exclusive mounts I had to turn to collecting the other type of animals, the non-combat-no-longer pets. In order to start my quest to be the best pet trainer, like no one ever was, I needed to visit the Battle Pet Trainer, Professor Audrey Burnhep



With only one pet slot to work with I picked my Lil’ XT since I have such a funny story acquiring him. (The story can be found in both Be MOP #107 and in #108)

Coming from a seasoned player of another popular turn based pet monster strategy games, the fights seems pretty easy. The move sets are much smaller than I am used to and the fights are simple enough to be entertaining without having too much complexity to warrant pages of analysis.

I will say that Blizzard did not waste any time with the immediate gratification. The first fight got my lil’ mechanical monster to level two and the first pet I captured was an uncommon, giving me a nice achievement to get me hooked on the game play.

Blizzard must have a a team of psychologists to keep players playing.

With adding the Westfall Chicken and my Wolpertinger I’m off to re-explore the world, collecting more pets to own and start my own epic adventure of being a PockET monster master. That is when I’m not to busy single handily winning the war for the Alliance and saving the world with a small group of adventures.

I’m also on Twitter Be MOP focuses on the Mists of Pandaria expansion of World of Warcraft with my own reflections about the current news and developments that happens throughout the game’s life cycle. Updates Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
