Carrying on the fine tradition begun with previous awesome Hunter pets, I now ask you, gentle reader, to take on the task of helping me find the perfect name for my new best buddy and bosom pal… Arcturis, the Spirit Beast Bear!
Thanks to Mania’s Arcania, for whom my respect knows no bounds, I knew that Arcturis was making his presence known in Patch 3.3.
I laid in my plans, and following the previous guidance from the commenters on WoWHead, I parked my Hunter in Grizzly Hills, on the west side of Amberpine Lodge, at about 32, 56, hovering in the airspace over that stretch of sharply sloped hill between the Grizzly Bear happy hunting grounds of the river, and the high ground where the Lodge itself resides.
This morning, I logged in quick to do a fast check, and sure enough, Thanks to the addon SilverDragon, I saw a popup to warn me that Arcturis had been spotted!
Arcturis does have the same stats as other spirit beasts, and I know that puppies are more in fashion for DPS these days, but I’ve been hoping for this moment ever since I first saw a PTR screenshot of him. How could I not?
So help a Feral Druid out, by suggesting your idea of the perfect name for Big Bear Butts’ new Big Bear pet!
Thank you, and may the spawn go with you!
