+practicaly the easiest elite to solo on the island
Super easy to kill compared to many other mobs, drops 15 timeless coins per kill.
so what is the point of hunter rares anymore?
It's VERY disappointing to be a Hunter and see this mob walking around the Timeless Isle. I camped Patrannache for days and days as soon as MoP went live, and It's a shame to know that any Hunter can go and get this beautiful looking pet without any hassle now. I don't understand why Blizzard would ruin such a beautiful rare? I really hope Blizzard do something about this...
Spawns at Mossgreen Lake on the Timeless Isle.
When farming coins on the timeless isle, the efficiency question is inevitable: Why should I choose to kill X?
The Brilliant Windfeather has low health but drops few coins and cannot be skinned. If you're out to slay 20 creatures for Path of the Mistwalker, it's a fine choice as it goes down fast and spawns right around Emperor Shaohao's court.
It also has a chance to drop
which increases your speed while mounted and while on the Isle. I've had this item mean the difference between reaching a rare and not reaching that rare. This is also a reason to choose to kill the Brilliant Windfeather.
So here is a comment: Apparently, Gust of Wind ability is not interupted (not truely) when you 'chastise' as a priest. It only stuns the beast and caused a delay, as the beast has to start casting all over again. Why does this suck? I'm a holy priest.. really squishy,
As to the point of killing these... Im a holy priest... really squishy... I'm not after the "drops". Mind you, if there were a tank or dps available to team up with, this kill 20 rares quest would be over and done in minutes.
I absolutely abhor this *&#@ pet. I spent MONTHS trapping patrannache and damn near quit when i saw these idiotic carbon copies roaming the island. What is the point of spending all of that time hunting a rare and beautiful pet just to turn your head slightly to the left and find out the god damned island is crawling with them? I feel like i just spent 4 months picking up pennies off the side walk, convinced they were rare, unique coins, 10 feet from a bank!
I got my revenge for what they did to my pink Crane model.
You'll need to unglyph Distracting Shot. Hit him quick with Distracting, then use an Explosive Shot or two or three (if LnL happens to proc, or if you're another spec, just use a nice blamo big damage ability to keep his aggro). I tamed one of these off six Allies, and promptly named her Eternity, commemorating the Burden of Eternity no one got off that non-kill.
If you're going to make my rare common, and thereby assert that "just being rare" is enough to make it special, I will take you seriously and tame the green rare, despite there being common alternatives.
"All we are is gusts of wind"
Just received a
from this mob - definitely no rare in the looting vicinity.
If I had a chance, I'd catch the pink windfeathers to go with the all female windfeathers - a Windfeather Crane Breeding Programme from the alchemists of Fireridge Metropolis.
