All I Want For Christmas Is Sambas!

The Elusive Ghostcrawler!
Chasing rare pets, for me, is like a compulsion. I hate it but once I get it in my head that I want a particular pet I have to have it or I'm one crabby Hunter. It's really annoying. Last night I was minutes late, maybe even seconds to tame Sambas. I was so mad, I wanted to throw something! I instead noted the spawn time and logged off in defeat. I know when he spawned but is he on a 12 or 24 hour spawn cycle?I've heard both so I will check at both times.

What really ticks me off is that if these rares have such a long spawn timer.... Why must (most of them) they be in questing hot spots? Any person questing along on their merry way can kill them for sport while about ten Hunters keep looking night and day, like vultures, in vain. I'm not a person who likes to waste huge amounts of time and this causes a lot of wasting time. Sure, I don't have to get these pets. I want to though, I just wish it wasn't such a PITA just to get the pet model we actually want. I'm not a fan of rare spawns anymore, EQ burned me out on massively long camps that make me want to roll into a ball and start rocking, in some dark corner.

He sparkles... Should I name him Edward??
I did manage to get the Ghostcrawler pet. He spawns in the Abandoned Reef. No other mobs spawn there and I was shocked to see him scuttle past me. I shrieked and pointed and made Dire look, I was so excited to finally see a rare. He's a cool pet, glad I got at least one rare! He makes a nice addition to my other lovely pets.

So I suppose I'll waste more time hunting these pets and hope to get lucky. If I don't enjoy it, why do I do it? Because I want those pets and there is no other way. I'm a Hunter, I have to have the coolest pets! What makes you want to pull you want to pull your hair out? Are you a masochist (as Lono likes to call me) about something in game? What's your vice? All I want for Christmas, in Azeroth, is Sambas!

For anyone interested in Ghostcrawler's location I found him here:

Safe adventures all!


  1. Okies Ill remins Santa of what you want lol! ox

  2. It's only a matter of time before you get it and then I'll be green with envy (think glow in the dark radioactive green). I think I want to level my hunter only for that pet.

    Grats on taming Greg Street and I wish you the best for the rest of them!

  3. Hehe, I wanted the GC just for that reason haha. My own little dev.. LOL.

    Sooo many Hunters are after that pet. I knew his spawn time and 24hrs later I went to log in and the game kept giving me errors upon logging in... GAH!
