Kaet: Forced Playtime

Tibri has gotten larger than Kaet!

When we last left Kaet I was slowly, oh so slowly, picking up the scattered threads of her life again. Since then, I’ve power-leveled her to level 50, more or less against my will.

Wait a second!, you exclaim. How can you level against your will? Well, as I mentioned in my last Kaet post, I am not shy about taking breaks from active playing if I’m just not into it. And I never force myself to play … well, not unless I have a very good reason. *grin*

Low-Level Taming Aids & Techniques

For many hunters, taming a pet is a routine activity. Sure, there are some especially challenging tames out there, but for most run-of-the-mill creatures you plop down your Freezing Trap and you hit Tame Beast, and that’s that.

Of course, things are a little more interesting when you can’t just plop down a Freezing Trap — for instance, when you are under level 20 and don’t know Freezing Trap yet.

But even after Patch 2.3.2 I have found myself disinclined to log her in.

Today: Elwynn Forest, home of the human race. Humans cannot be hunters, unfortunately, but Elwynn Forest is easily accessible to dwarf hunters, who merely need to ride the Deeprun Tram from Ironforge to Stormwind. Once in Stormwind, Elywnn Forest lies just beyond the city gates.

Choosing Your First Pet: Tirisfal Glades

This article is part of a series for new hunters on choosing your first pet.

When I started this series, I mentioned that I was targeting not just new hunter characters but new hunter players — people who may not be as familiar with Azeroth and who may not be quite ready to go gallivanting off across the world at level 10 in search of the perfect pet. For that reason, I’ve so far stuck to the newbie areas that host races who can be hunters.

But while a new hunter may not be ready for the run from Azuremyst to Eversong, there are some journeys that are reasonably accessible. A small safe trip like this can open up exciting new pet possibilities for new hunters.
