Predatory Strike no longer deal damage as a percentage of the target’s health. The ability now deals a flat amount of bonus damage instead.


Awesome! Because I was just thinking the Fabled Beast fights weren't quite slow and boring enough to suit me. They should definitely do what they can to add a few rounds to them. In fact, let's just get rid of Life Exchange while we're at it.


Edit: yes, I do know they're breaking the quest up into 3. Still doesn't make the individual fights more fun. In fact, they're buffing the beasts while taking away the shortcut skills. But sadly that bag still remains the best shot at stones. It's not serious QQ, but I'm definitely annoyed enough to need candy or something.

meh -.-

I have abandoned doing the Spirit Tamer/Legendary Beast dailies for the pets I still miss there. I'll just buy them from the AH some time. This whole thing is just annoying to me and everytime they do something to make it slightly less frustrating (splitting the quest up in 3) they make some other adjustments to make sure it will still suck.

I used to not mind the dailies but either I have the worst luck ever lately, or they've lowered the drop rate on stones. And when I open 17 bags - including the Fabled Beast one which is really time consuming - and get nothing but 10 silver worth of vendor trash and half a dozen bandages, my nerd rage is mighty.

I'm cool if they want to keep stones (and pets) this rare, but then I think they should show us the money when there's nothing else in the bag. These don't even pay as much as other dailies.

I'll be honest, I never used Predatory Strike or Life Exchange Smiley: lol

I also never did the daily for the Fabled Beasts. Too much effort for too little a reward. Same with the Pandaren Spirits. Still kill Nishi almost every day though, just because she's simple and great for leveling new pets.

Which is why you consider Fabled Beasts to be effort. Smiley: nod The fights themselves are quick, but I agree it's a lot of flying around. If I'm flying around doing other dailies anyway I'll do it though. I never get stones randomly around the world, so dailies remain my primary source of them. Really wish they'd at least up the pet xp for those fights though. Not worth doing them with anything other than 25's so it really serves no purpose apart from the bag.

I find all the other dailies great for leveling pets. The Earth Spirit and maybe, if it's a bad RNG day, that guy by the lake with the super annoying mob walking across the quest area are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head that can't be two-petted fairly easily, allowing you to stick a random in the third slot to take a couple of hits.
