Last night I just wanted to relax with something easy that required almost no thought. It has been a really long week and I didn’t want to deal with other players. I settled in to do some pet battles and I wasn’t disappointed. I have been leveling up lil ‘xt a mechanical pet, along with a dragonkin and a beast. This combination is not always the best when fighting against NPC tamers – but it’s a fantastic combination when out in the wild. A lot of the pets you’ll be up against are beasts and mechanical pets do very well against them.
Before I knew it, I had my first level 25 pet. The others are quickly following because once your pet stops gaining experience the experience earned is divided towards the other team members. Now my team consists of a 25, and two level 24s. Next on my ‘to do’ list is to finish beating the tamers in the world so that I can earn the safari hat and boost my experience gained by 10%. There’s a lovely addon that allows you to swap out your regular hat for the safari hat when you do battles, and this will help me actually make use of it for once, instead of having it sit in my bags doing nothing like I would normally do.
I also managed to raise my collection from 212 pets to 232. 250 is my next objective for the achievement – and I couldn’t be more pleased. Over all? It was a fantastic calm evening spent doing pretty much nothing which is what I wanted right from the start.
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
