I saw that I was fairly close to getting Venus – the pet reward for That’s a Lot of Pet Food so I’ve been slowly working on collecting 400 pets. It’s also been a while since I copied my toons over, so I counted another five or six pets collected since then. Late last night I copied my Alliance and Horde priest over expecting to see the count go up. However, I was disappointed to find that the number didn’t change at all, so I set out to find some of the ones I was missing.
When I was collecting the Wild Pets of Eastern Kingdoms, the Wildhammer Gryphon Hatchling was hard to find. It was only available as part of a Twilight Highlands team and not in the wild. But back then the pet wasn’t able to be captured either. Luckily this has since been fixed.
I did try and get the Silithid Hatchling for my 400th pet but since you need a sandstorm in Tanaris, I looked for an easier alternative. That’s when I noticed another goldfish in the pet journal – Fishy is available to both Horde and Alliance as a quest reward.
Oddly enough, the achievement didn’t automatically give me the pet. Once I had logged back in though it was in my journal.
It doesn’t take long before he burrows and falls asleep. If I didn’t know better, I’d say he was drooling.
