It's not the first time that I've found myself doing something like this. I helped sneak into Zul'Gurub to tame windserpents, I've taken my orc warrior to Winterspring to get her Sian-Rotam (and I noticed while we were there this time to get her Juju Flurry for the tame attempt that the Ursius quest is open to Alliance now) and once or twice I may have accidentally killed Lupos before she could tame him.
This particular tame took two nights to pull off: the first night, we found ourselves coming to within a second of the tame but unable to do it because of the random proc of her Mystical Skyfire Diamond, so we were forced to come back today after enlisting the aid of a helpful level 37 priest to use mind control to summon the pet exactly as the diamond procced. Two attempts this time got it done, that priest left 30g richer, I shook my head at the foolishness of hunters, I got smacked in the back of the head and we took the new pet to Auchenai Crypt where he ended up 4 levels higher than he was when she got him.
Of course, it's not all me standing around in a swamp casting Heroism. As much as I like to kid my wife about her hunter obsessions, I have to admit it's nice having a guaranteed partner for questing and our new 2x2 Arena team. All in all it makes the game much more positive for me, even when I'm cursing my head off about healing a bad pull in Underbog to get her more Sanguine Hibiscus, knowing that after she gets her Spore Bat pet she'll be helping me grind up my latest flying mount.
Have any of you ended up in a weird place helping someone close personally do something the slightest bit daft? Or are you usually the one leading the expedition to Zul'Aman to try and tame a bear?
