This has been my first week re-subbed to WoW. My game priorities tend to be pretty different than a lot of players I think. I didn’t jump into any of the new content or start running dungeons, instead I just checked out the Darkmoon Faire and everything that had changed since I departed from Azeroth in the spring. The first thing I noticed was the ability to upgrade heirlooms to level 85, and that it only cost 44 tickets per item. Since I’m a hardcore alt-a-holic, this excited me! While I was grinding tickets across my many alts I saw the zone-wide notification about Moonfang spawning in the woods. I figured she’d be something that would be too tough for me, or something I’d at least need to find a group for, but someone in general mentioned where it was so I thought I’d go check it out.
I helped kill her and was happy to discover that I didn’t have to be part of a group to get loot. I really love that new feature because I’ve always hated trying to get into groups for such things. Then I got 10 tickets for turning in Moonfang’s paw, which was awesome since I was trying to get as many tickets as possible to upgrade all my heirloom pieces! After killing her on a couple of my other characters to get the paw turn in and more tickets, someone ran by me trailed by the Moon Moon companion, and I knew I had to have one of my own! I hung around Darkmoon for the rest of the day, helping to kill Moonfang every time she spawned. I figured out it was roughly every hour and I had a level 90 on two different servers, so I hopped back and forth between them for most of the week, killing her about 38 times.
Yesterday I noticed a level 20 looting her corpse and I realized I didn’t need a 90 to kill her. I then started hopping between my 6 main servers, piling up another 42 kills before finally finding a Moon Moon of my own tonight on my old Horde server.
Pet collecting is a pretty big deal to me from long before pet battles came along, so I was very happy to add this new little guy to my pet family. I’m currently at 362 unique pets and have noticed lots of other new pet faces running around since my return, so collecting them will be one of my next big in-game projects. I just wanted to post about my little Moon Moon adventure because it did take up a huge amount of time this week and just in case anyone else was trying for the pet and getting discouraged, I just wanted to say to keep at it, across as many servers as possible and you’ll find one!
PS – As I was finishing this post, Moonfang spawned, I killed her and found a second Moon Moon! Hopefully I can sell it for a decent amount since there have not been any listed on my main server’s Auction House all week!
