I picked up a relatively reasonably priced Diablo 3 Collector's Edition - nice that I got some extra game time too - to get this scary little sucker.
Yesterday I logged on and Veluxia said she had a possibly logistically awkward surprise! I was curious - and I wasn't disappointed! It was logistically awkward but an awesome surprise! She had farmed for a Rodent Crate and was going to drop it and wanted me to try and get one.
How exciting! I was so excited that I flew over and there and of course was getting shot at. Veluxia had a friend with her and she dropped it near the lighthouse at Lion's Landing. Wow. There are a lot of angry looking NPCs there.
So I thought I was being clever and stealthing up and managing to get into a battle before I get into combat. And... I forgot I had been pet battling earlier so I had one dead pet, one level 25 undead and one level 19 cat. Oh.. crap!
So I did pretty well considering. Lost by one attack. But I was so busy cursing my stupidity that I didn't hit flight form fast enough or start running fast enough because I was attacked and a hunter and his pet attacked me as well as all these NPCs so I jumped off the cliff and died there.
Back I came again to try again! That crate is cool, it just keeps churning out Sumprush Rodents for 20 minutes, so anyone could come and try to catch one. I spent a lot of time running away and sneaking back, so I got 3 goes in, all were poors though - but that didn't matter, I had one!
Veluxia managed to snag a rare! She had one funny moment where she clicked the portal instead of the animal to pet battle and ended up on a ship - thank goodness there was a quick teleport back!
And my 3rd new addition, is not very exciting looking - here is my Singing Cricket.
I finally got 75 pets to 25 - and I think I'm all burnt out from levelling pets so I might take a break... after I level my Stands In Bad team. Need to show that to Kia sometime, she'll think it's funny.
