- In which my 7 year old saves the day!
- October 1st, 2012
My 9 YO son and 7 YO daughter love WoW. So much so that we added accounts on for them, DS's is attached to hubby's battle.net and DD's is attached to mine. Ever since we got into the beta (Day 1, woohoo!) they have been in LOVE with the pandas. So proud of them, they made 85 templates and got them almost to 87 on their own! You may judge my parenting skills in another forum, but anyway!
Launch happened, so of course everyone wants to play! We on the mains, the kids on pandas! Hubby was all over pet battles and such right away, whereas I know I level slow, so I didn't even let myself touch pet battles till Friday. (I'm still only level 88 too, see?) We were looking forward to the kids getting their new pandas over to the pet trainer so they could learn the Jade Crane chick and then we'd all have it in our books. Only...turns out there's a bug. If you trained your main in pet battles before making a panda, the panda gets bugged. The game will act like they have the training, but they can't see the Chick pet on the Pet Battle lady in Stormwind.
So since I was a laggard on that front, DD had made her panda and was well on the way to leaving the Wandering Isle before I got around to training pet battles. I haz crane! But remember my gung-ho hubby who was in like Flynn with...everything? He had trained pet battles long before our young fella made his panda, and he got hit with the bug. BUT! DD had made a second panda! They *do* love pandas something fierce already, and she loves making new newbies! So hubby got her abandoned first panda to the mainland, bought and caged the chick, and learned that one on his account, so he and DS have crane chicks now too.
My daughter: defeating Blizzard bugs since...Thursday.
PS: I think we need a battle pets tag!
