    My bg is kinda empty, if your in EU, I cant invite you and high chance you can find most beasts.

    Hehe, I have it! Was the first spirit beast pet I found, and by pure accident my NPC scanner just started going crazy.

    Is there an elusive pet that you just can't get your hands on?
    It took me 3 days to camp this pet. I lost once because I didn't tab in quick enough, and the other two times were because a jealous hunter killed it mid-tame
    Here are his spawn timers according to when I was logging them some ~8 months ago:
    "Arcturis sighting #1: 7:57am
    Arcturis sighting #2: 9:49pm
    Arcturis sighting #3: 11:35pm
    Arcturis Sighting #4: 2:15pm

    It appears to be on a consistent ~13hr 45m cycle - give or take a few as all sightings followed this cycle."


    Good luck

    Ah, good ol' Arcturis. Camped him for 2 weeks during the day. Didn't see him once in that time. Figured I'd log in early in the morning at 7 am and tada.. There he was walking around.
    Good luck getting him now with all the cross realm stuff and later on the "virtual servers". Really recomment you check early to see if hes up.

    The only spirit beast I still don't have is Loque. Seen his corpse over 15 times now and gave up on him.

    I think a lot just like annoying people with his loud sound effects. That was the only reason I used Chromaggus back when his roar could be heard across entire zones.

    I loved Loque when I first got him. I'm not much of an RPer per se, but I like when things "make sense" in a manner of speaking. When you pop Bestial Wrath, it sounds like a wild predator raging for some blood. Doing that with a bird pet, or anything that's not a cat, bear dinosaur, etc, just never made sense to me.

    So Loque seriously added to that BW sound effect when I first got him. I was in love with all his HHHUUURRRRAAAAAAWRRRRR n stuff. Mhm.

    Surprisingly the bear is the easiest spirit beast to get since its on a very low CD timer. However, when I played the game, I've never seen it. I've tamed Loque and Gondria 5 mins from each other and a few others in the Cata regions, but I've never seen the Bear or its corpse.

    The best time to tame spirit beasts are usually the hours just after realm restarts. I tamed Loque and Gondria 5 mins apart on one particular realm restart day. Even other rares are easier to come across on realm restart days. Don't really know about realm maintenance. Haven't bothered trying.

    Supposedly Loque is the hardest to get since the spawn timer is pretty long.

    I've been pet hunting with my little lvl 75 hunter too.. Went to grizzly hills and just sat there around, reading a book and hopeing to get the loud sound from NPCScan.

    Suddenly I hear the "low hp" sound and switch back to WoW.. and I am dead, killed by a lvl 90 horde hunter. He ganked me like 30 min, killed me 10 times at least and left then.. The second he flew away that nice little bear spawned, I icetrapped and tamed it.. 3 seconds later the 90 hunter came back, killed me again.. But I just pulled my ghost bear out and danced and /violine'd him ^^

    Yes, they mean it! Got a broken leg, a female Dwarf and an infraction. Don't mess with humor folks !

    I tamed Loque at the beginning of WotLK and Arcturis toward the end of Cataclysm. Far worse than the camping for either of these was my stubborn (but eventually successful) hunt for Terrorpene at the very beginning of Cata. I stared at my computer for 12 hours hours straight for three days in a row. Terrorpene nearly ruined my marriage.

    I feel sorry for hunters going after these guys now. All of this cross-server bullshit has turned rare taming into a nonstop grief-fest with a half dozen hunters camped out at every spawn point 24/7 waiting to gank each others' tame attempts.

    My friend had a terrible time taming the monkey with the fez hat. I just got it over the weekend as I was flying to Karazahn. Needless to say he was pretty upset.
