Happiest Hunter On Smolderthorn Tonight!


He was just waiting there for me. There I stood without that last point in beast mastery, unable to tame him. So, I hearthed to Taunka'le Village, flew to Dalaran, took a portal to Orgrimmar, unlearned everything and spent my points, maybe not perfectly, but to at least get that last point in Beast Mastery. Then, with the help of Sinnerman, I took a portal to Dalaran, flew back to Sholazar, beat the feathers out of my wyvern for going so slow, and found him still waiting there. To think I had been admiring the Goretalon Matriarch and thinking of waiting for her to respawn after killing her for my Frenzyheart daily quest. I'm so glad Loque'nahak caught my eye!

The name Carlotta felt a little Italian, so I went with an Italian word that meant spirit (or essence). No bubble gum name for this fella!

On a side note, BlackJack gave up his stable spot for Essenza. He will be missed, but I'm sure he is running happily with his corrupted brethren in Zul'drak. You were a good pet, Jack. You earned your freedom.

woot! That's pretty nice that you spotted the cat, then were able to go back and find it later.

The fact that you were able to hearth and make it back in time to get the tame is amazing! The gaming gods were definitely watching you and major congratulations on the wicked pet. I level my hunter to 80 pretty much just for this pet and I've yet to find him :(

@mo and Spooner

I cannot believe that during that whole long trip the spirit beast just sat there waiting for me! I almost set a sentry to watch, but no guildmates were available at the time (darn those pug naxx runs anyhow!).

Thanks for stopping by!
