This is me losing out on Arcturis to another hunter by milliseconds:
And this is me getting my Unborn Val'kyr a tiny bit later:
I wish I had some words of advice or tips, but alas, I don't. I've just gotten in the habit of clearing out my NPC cache before logging on, and for some reason, that spot in Sholazar always beckoned me. I put the NPC scan number in the add on last night, and voila!
That spirit bear really wants to go home with ME though, so I'll keep trying.
She is damn cute. The Unborn, not the mage.
