Notes from the field: After being stalked by a Blood Elf hunter around Sholazar, was relieved to find she wasn’t stalking me, but a rare leopard of sorts. Must be extremely rare – while I was resting at Nesingwary’s camp, she brought out a white leopard with glowing blue eyes and indicated she was happy with the beast – I can only assume she had just tamed it. After congratulating her as best I could (I don’t speak that non-sensical language she was prattering on in) and giving the leopard a scratch or two, I figured I should do some research and see what other sorts of rare spirit beasts could be tamed.
I’d heard there was a spirit cat to be found in Zul’Drak and figured I’d set out and try to find it, even though I hadn’t set foot in that place. After flying in, it didn’t look very inviting at all and I nearly wanted to turn around (the trolls didn’t look… right). After picking a starting place, I flew low to the ground in a counter clockwise circle around the center of the area. There were some very interesting looking cats that caught my eye, but they were blooded beasts – not spiritly. Spirited. Spiritual. …not what I was looking for.
After flying over some huge staircase to some temple for who knows what, I got a tingle. In the shadows of the staircase, pacing companionably with an ice pawed bear was a purplish spirit beast with glowing blue eyes, so spectral I could barely see her in the shadows.
Conclusion: despite a mis-timed tame attempt resulting in an attack by the ice pawed bear, the spirit cat was tamed.
