After running some scenarios last night, we were all at a loss as to what we felt like doing next. I noticed I was closing in on 8k in achievement points (still no idea how) so I figured I would head off and do the Amphitheater of Anguish. Some other people must have had the same idea because the place was packed. So that plan quickly went away.
As I was out in Zul’Drak, I decided to fly up to the Storm Peaks and see if I could possibly track down an Arctic Fox Kit. It’s bad enough they can only be found when it’s snowing, but it also was the only pet I needed for Northrend Safari and it’s been that way for well over a year. I flew out over Thunderfall, which used to be notorious for having them until you actually phased into the zone. This time there wasn’t even that tease. There was nothing. I flew up towards the Terrace of the Makers while explaining to guildmates what the kit was and how to catch it. Then I landed in the snow and had a few pets show up on the screen. When I saw one in particular, I couldn’t click fast enough.
That’s right, the Arctic Fox Kit. I didn’t care if it was Poor. It could’ve been laying there dead and I still would’ve gone for it. Of course my biggest fear was accidentally killing it, but that didn’t happen and in rare Tum form it only took three tries to capture him. The remainder of the fight was a cake walk as one pet did the trick. So I managed to knock off an achievement that had been bugging me simply because I had one thing left to do and for the life of me just couldn’t get lucky enough to even find the critter, let alone catch one. But catch it I did.
