It took less than 5 kills to get from rebellious to unruly on Friday. I have a level 30 hunter with an owl as his main pet, so I didn’t think I’d learn much from this one but I was wrong. On the level 30, I basically used claw unless I knew there would be 2 pulled and I’d swap to screech. It worked fine, but even when I knew I would pull more than one mob, I often forgot to swap focus dumps. Meh. I even considered just dropping screech.
For the level 70, I only had enough points for one of the 2, so screech it is. Wow. I don’t think I pulled agro from Axiom once. Just as I’d get a crit that would put me close, 2+ screeches come in. Adds were still an issue since they hadn’t received the initial dose of screeches.
I’d like to do a few more BGs and an instance run before I abandon it.
Now I’m at an interesting point. There are 3 more families still at +7% DPS, but the only spiders and bats are elite in Kara, but I’m not even attuned and have no idea how hard that would be to solo should I get a key or 2.4 comes. I could go back and level some easier to get mobs in the same family. Theres a 68 spider, but the next highest bat is 60 in ZG and that would be quite a grind. The 3rd pet is the 69 windserpent so there’s no avoiding a grind there.
My thoughts are to try to run SL with my owl and first key fragment, then pick up a windserpent and run the other 3 instances for exp. If I get the WS up before I’m done with those instances, I’ll grab a spider and level it. Leaving just the bat for Kara. Or should I start with the spider? I think I can get some help from some 1337 guild on my server for Kara. I have friends in both <Goon Squad> and <Glory and Beer> which are raiding guilds.
I’m interested to see how a spider plays at 70. It will be my first “bad” pet, and I had one before on my first hunter alt which went from 30-45 pre 1.7 with one.
