|Dusty Track? I wonder what that is!?!|
I followed the tracks from where I was, just north-west of Mistfall Village, right around to the western end of Portent's track (at the time I had no idea what/who I was tracking). I thought I had missed something and checked out WoW Rare Spawns post on Portent. I then got really excited - having seen that not only was I tracking Portent the Quilen but that he came in four colour skins.
Anyway, I saw that I was at the end of his path (I'd walked into a wall) so started following the tracks back around. Now I've recently been having issues with my laptop/graphics card and keep having random flickering trees that are there one second and then vanish before popping back up again. Based on this I thought that I was having issues seeing the tracks - how wrong I was!!!
The boyfriend came home so I eagerly told him I was tracking Portent and got him to read up on taming him for me. I directed the boyf to WoW Rare Spawns and it seems that I had missed some rather important information! The trackable pets are stealthed and you need to use flare gun to see them. It seems that I had been following him the whole time - explaining my issues in seeing the tracks. By this point I was at the eastern edge of his path, unstealthed and tamed him.
And here he is, my very own blue Portent!
I've replaced Cyril my core hound with him. I hardly ever used my core hound due to the necessity of BM-spec so felt that a simple replacement would work best. I plan to sort out my BM action bars so that I can actually play it sometime soon.
Also, I'd just thought I'd quickly recommend WoW Rare Spawns to anyone that doesn't read/use it already. Euphyley has some brilliant guides on there (just helps if you read them first).
