I saw someone else do it and it seemed really hard.
Until I did it myself... Flapping the wings is just a matter of timing it and once you get to know it (after like 10 flaps) it's really easy.
So it's an easy obtainable pet.
I wonder if the Chirping Box reward gives you the Jouster that you didn't originally choose in the first quest.
I completed this on the PTR earlier today and it does give you the second pet!

Subject: Please... Just Take It
Ever since his brother was taken
away. This little creature has been
nothing short of a handful. The
guardians and I have done everything
we can to contain his energy, but our
efforts have fallen depressingly short.
It is now clear.
He wants to be with his brother.
It took us nearly an hour to get him
contained. Please, take him with you.
Perhaps some time outside of this
cavern will do him good.
Confirmed on PTR, the Chirping box has the MiniJouster you didn't get originally. (I picked gold, so got the blue one)
The portal to this daily quest is at 39,58 in Mount Hyjal.
They seem to have fixed the mechanics a bit. I absolutely loathed this quest when I got my first jouster, but the flap mechanism seems a lot more responsive now and I completed it with no problems.
Dammit, Blizzard! After 3.2, I thought we made it absolutely clear that we were all sick of Jousting dailies!
"Hyjal kids! Hyjal wives! They're lancing everyone in here!"
Wait - we get this as a daily but can still only do "Gnomebliteration" once?
for live 4.2....you get the opposite pet of the one you already have.
if you have
Blue Mini Jouster
you will open your
and be rewarded
Gold Mini Jouster
....or vice versa
check your mailbox after you have completed the achivement!
Don't open the box if your inventory is full! I just did and it resulted it me not getting anything, the box opened and I received error message 'Inventrory full'. The pet you are missing isn't looted, it's created, thus the contain of this box when it's opened is lost and required a GM to retrieve it for you!
I think this achievement title is a reference to The Daily Show's Resident Expert John Hodgman and his "You're Welcome" segments. The opening title of which states "Global warming: Solved. Energy Crisis: Averted. Superviruses: Cured. Sasquatches: Captured."
My question is this, Is this a rotating daily? Is this something I have to do so many of something else, or opens after I turn in 150 marks? I am still working on my first group of 150 and have not seen this quest yet.
Will check back later.
Daily Wave: Lance in the pants!
Has anyone noticed that if you have the quest giver targeted as you're trying to go through the portal again, it won't let you through?
Or is that just me...
I'm surprised not to see this here. This quest is essentially a three dimensional version of the classic arcade game "Joust."
It's pretty accurate, right down to the tricky controls.
The title is based off the "Pterodactyl" boss in the game Joust, who was a real big pain in the butt to down because you had to hit him EXACTLY in the mouth with your lance, or else he'd kill you. It brings me traumatic memories of fighting that beast 25 years ago!
It takes you 10 days to complete this achievement. If you started to level up in Mount Hyjal, according to the leveling speed on your character, you can get this achievement before you hit Level 85.
For the third day in a row, once I have completed the quest inside the cave, I can not exit back through the portal. The only way I have been able to get out is to hearth back to Stormwind. Is anyone else having this issue? There a couple of other comments here about not being able to leave the cave, so if you are doing this quest for the achievement, you might want to make sure this is your last Firelands daily because it sucked having to hearth back to SW, then hearth back to Hyjal and fly back to the Shrine.
For anyone having trouble exiting the cave once you're done; you probably entered the portal on your flying mount. Dismount before entering, and you should be able to leave :-) Worked for me!
Blue Mini Jouster
is Breed 12 and the
Gold Mini Jouster
is Breed 8.
It is now possible to get both pets by doing the ‘
’ quest and '
The 'Unbeatable?' Pterodactyl: BEATEN
Entrance to do this daily is at 39, 58 in the
zone. Big blue ball
Anyone else disappointed there was no insta-kill mob that flew out of nowhere?
Pet reward, either
, will be in your mailbox, depending on which one you are missing.
In case for some reason you get the achievement and u get the Jouster u already had - talk to a stable master and u'll be able to buy the missing one for a few silver.
Approved by a GM and just how a friend got theirs. Don't wait for days or hours or weeks or w/e for a ticket - just do that and carry on.
