Random Favorite Pet

“In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.”
Terry Pratchett


Random Favorite Pet

How many pets do you have on favorite?


rfp


I have my specials like Cap’n Crackers and Stardust and also the pets that I’m leveling to keep track of the project. Then I move pets in and out of the rotation.

I call it a rotation like in baseball with a roster. We want our pets out with us but we lose them easily when porting or taking a flight path.

The new pets from Raiding with Leashes are great but I am still looking for that super-cool unique pet with animations like Egbert, Stinker, Stardust, Nuts, Boneshard and Cap’n Crackers who will sit on your shoulder. Maybe in 8.2.

The macro to call random favorite pets is /rfp. Easy as that! Add that to a list of macros on your mount and you are sure to have a pet with you all of the time.

Twitching Eyeball Macro’d

“Receive my gift and see all truths before you.”
N’Zoth


Twitching Eyeball Macro’d


NB: Warning spoilers ahead. This toy is from the bread-crumb quest line to announce the opening of the Crucible of Storms raid next week.


What a great quest line. The voice actor deserves an Oscar, I was seduced into my future greatness. At the end, you have a choice to be cleansed and if you do, you win a toy:


Twitching Eyeball
Item Level 120
Toy
Binds when picked up
Use: Receive the gift of N’Zoth.
(60 min cooldown)
Quest: His Eye Upon You
Zone: Zuldazar

Quest: His Eye Upon You
Zone: Stormsong Valley
Requires Level 110
“N’Zoth’s gift, now dormant.”

With a one hour up and a one hour cooldown, you can wear (if you dare!) this toy full time. I chose to macro it with my hearthstone. Since it is instant cast, it could be added to your mount macro.

#showtooltip Peddlefeet's Lovely Hearthstone
/cast Azerite Firework Launcher
/cast Twitching Eyeball
/cast Peddlefeet's Lovely Hearthstone

The quest begins by doing the WQ Naga Invasion, I got it off the first mob. It was such a good quest …

I think that I’ll go do it again!

Peddlefeet’s Lovely Hearthstone

“Do the best you can, and don’t take life too serious.”
Will Rogers


Peddlefeet’s Lovely Hearthstone

And lovely it is!

The feet go up to make you float. You pull on a bow with a heart arrow, sparkles come from the tip, small hearts flitter and finally a big heart finishes the cast.

I don’t recommend any macro, this is spectacular enough as it is. I had early thoughts of sparkles and bubbles but it gets way too busy and messy.

Yes, I think this toy stands alone without any extras.

Lunar Elder’s Hearthstone Macro’d

“A cynic is a man who, when he smells flowers, looks around for a coffin.”
H. L. Mencken


Lunar Elder’s Hearthstone Macro’d

The Lunar Festival is here! After honoring your Elders and gathering 30 Elder’s Coins, you can purchase this new toy.


Lunar Elder’s Hearthstone
Item Level 1
Binds when picked up
Toy
Use: Returns you to . Speak to an Innkeeper in a different place to change your home location. (30 Min Cooldown)
“Return home in the wisest way possible!”

World Event: Lunar Festival


The toy is account wide and will return you to whichever inn that character has chosen.

Since the tooltip says, “Return home in the wisest way possible!” I think it is time to add some fun toys to the visual. The hearth has several stages of animation with kneeling, wise waving of the arm and finally a firework to hasten your departure.

How about waving that arm to smell your popcorn AND the foul smell of a noisy fart?

I’m sorry, folks, it has to be done.

#showtooltip Lunar Elder's Hearthstone
/cast Pretty Draenor Pearl
/cast Foul Belly
/cast Bubble Wand
/cast Everlasting Alliance Firework
/cast Hot Buttered Popcorn
/cast Lunar Elder's Hearthstone

We cast, we kneel, we fart, beg pardon.

Behold! My magic popcorn!

Oh, it smells so good.

Greatfather Winter’s Hearthstone Macro’d

“One may have a blazing hearth in one’s soul and yet no one ever came to sit by it. Passers-by see only a wisp of smoke from the chimney and continue on their way.”
Vincent Van Gogh


Greatfather Winter’s Hearthstone Macro’d

Let’s have a little fun. It needs just a little more pizzazz.

#showtooltip Greatfather Winter's Hearthstone
/cast Pretty Draenor Pearl
/cast Everlasting Alliance Firework
/cast Hot Buttered Popcorn
/cast Greatfather Winter's Hearthstone

How about some fireworks to call notice to you.
How about getting some shiny.
How about munching on popcorn while you wait for the cast?

The toy is account wide, it can replace all of your hearthstones and free up a slot in your bags.

Happy Holidays!

Tiny Mechanical Mouse (not) Macro’d

“Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.”
Groucho Marx


Tiny Mechanical Mouse (not) Macro’d

This new toy is pretty great. Your character will kneel down to put the mouse on the ground. Your pet will chase it about for a full thirty seconds with a mere twenty minute cooldown. It is amusing, fun and well worth the steep price of five hundred polished pet charms.

A screen shot shows nothing really, I’m sorry. Get the toy yourself and enjoy it!

I have NOT been able to make a macro, which bums me out.

I tried:

/rfp
/cast tiny mechanical mouse

and

/summonpet Stardust
/cast tiny mechanical mouse

In both cases the pet shows up, the toy shows up, BUT the pet ignores the mouse! This is a big amusing in itself but … not what I want.

If you can figure it out, I’d appreciate it. I think a note via the Suggestion Box is in order.

Until then, I’ll summon a pet. And then use the toy. It is fun!

BfA: I Know You Rider

“The process of selecting the tone on the guitar is an aesthetic process like any other, so you try a lot of different things.”
Jerry Garcia


BfA: I Know You Rider

I’ve made many mount macros. I usually call them a generic Rider because I’ll change the mount but keep the spells. Or I’ll swap some spells.

#showtooltip Crimson Water Strider
/cast Everlasting Alliance Firework
/cast Prismatic Bauble
/rfp
/cast Bubble Wand
/cast Pretty Draenor Pearl
/cast Crimson Water Strider

Here is my current. Many people are using the Water Strider mount. You should be able to copy and paste right off of this page. You might not have the Bauble but I’m sure you have the Bubbles and the Sparkles. /rfp means “random favorite pet”.

It makes you feel like you are moving with a purpose!
