"Love" to Get Some Pets Leveled?

Are you a hunter? Are you Alliance? Are you an Engineer? Is "Love is in the Air" going on? Got some pets that you've been procrastinating leveling? If so I've got a deal for you!

I had been grinding the earth elemental in the starting area of Mt. Hyjal go get my bracelets. After doing that for a while I decided to hit wowhead and look for some mobs I could possibly 'skin' on my engineer.

I found the Diamond-Blade Shredders in Twilight Highlands fit the bill perfectly. Now I can get charms, get my pet leveled and also get the chance to skin Electrified Ether and Handful of Obsidium Bolts as well.

This might be my new favorite place to level pets until "Love.." is over. I have quite a few pets that need some love.

PS, Dont Forget your Loot-A-Rang!

4.0.1 Hunter Tricks: Worm AOE DPS!

Gummy Worms 12

So I thought I would tank about one of the ways I have been able to see high DPS after the recent WoW 4.0.1 patch.

As I was looking over the hunter pet changes I was keeping my eye open for any pets that do AOE damage. Previous to this patch the bear was a respectable AOE pet with Swipe as well as Thunderclap. This along with Volley were the bread and butter of my AOE DPS strategy while farming heroic dungeons for emblems.
