It’s the Pet Battle Bonus Week Event in World of Warcraft and that only means one thing for me.
Pet battling is all I’m going to be doing in Warcraft for the next week! I like to take advantage of the extra experience points for my battle pets and I have a lot of them to level!
There are a lot of different things to do to entertain yourself in Warcraft. There are people that love to Raid and only work toward the end game content. There are people that play the Auction House to become rich in gold beyond their wildest dreams. There are people that love PVP play and collect their honor points so they can gank every noob that dares to enter their LoS.
And then there’s people like me – Collectors! I collect pets, mounts, titles, reputation and achievements. My crowning glory is grinding and farming the ridiculous rep needed to get the Insane in the Membrane achievement which I proudly wear my ‘the Insane’ title for on all but a couple of my toons.
I’ll get back to that in a future Warcraft blog. This is pet battle week! Yaaaaaaaaay!
One of my long term goals in Warcraft is to not only collect pets, but to also get them to level 25. I should mention that I only level Rare quality pets. So any that I have that aren’t Rare quality are going to sit in my Collection tab until I either replace them with Rare quality or buy the upgrade with my Pet Battle Tokens. Eventually my goal is to have the max number of pets and for them all to be max level Rare quality! I’ve been working on this for a few years.
The best place to park yourself is in Valley of the Four Winds in Pandaria, just over the Sky Range ooker dooker mountain ledge. I camp out there with a toon that has the mining profession and grab some nodes while I’m zipping between pets to battle or waiting for my heal pets cool down. Pipskweek my dwarf Paladin is currently there hanging out.
There are some nice groups of Malayan Quillrat families that you can just stay in one place and battle your heart out for an hour or so.
Pipskweek is getting a lot of exp herself by pet battling. She is very close to dinging 101 and I have not done any of the Legion content with her. Pet battle wins in a max pet level zone give between 10,000 and 11,000 exp per battle. Plus the ghost iron she is mining will be used to make Sky Golems. My Sky Golem manufacturing has been my main source of gold since they pulled the plug on the Garrison gold making machine. I have been able to fund my subscription for well over a year now by using gold to buy tokens instead of real money. Yaaay!
I’m aware that patch 7.2 dropped yesterday and that there is some sort of Pet Battle dungeon but I will reiterate – I only pet battle during the Pet Battle Bonus Week! I’ll check out the new content next Wednesday!
I currently have 373 Level 25 Rare quality pets. I will report my progress next Tuesday night when Pet Battle Bonus Week is over.
Thanks for reading!
