Barrens Chat: Gotta catch 'em all

Megan Harris

When I started playing World of Warcraft, I decided to start off by making a Tauren Hunter. Mostly because every single game I've ever played, I am usually a healer-type character. I decided that I did not want to be the healer this time around, but I was far from ready for the tank job, so I went halfway into what I figured would be a decent solo and damage support class. I was so unprepared for what playing a Hunter would be.

One of my major obsessions, however, was to find a pet that was an uncommon sight. I did not realize at the time that Echeyakee was a Horde side quest, and was really excited at having gotten a "rare pet" when a friend offered to help me tame him.

Eventually I figured out how silly I was being. Eventually meaning later that day when I walked into Orgrimmar. I got over the idea of having a rare pet after that, for the most part.

This comic is made to reflect both how silly I felt, and poke fun at a common question I get from newer players asking me to help them find the rare white lion in Barrens. Random Tauren Hunter because that character I had forever ago no longer exists. I'm sure some of you will know someone who has done this and can attach a name to her if you wish.
