I decided to start farming for the Hyacinth Macaw and Razzashi Hatchling when I’m not working on Darkmoon Faire stuff. I’m focusing purely on the area where Venture Co. Geologist are located for Steemwheedle Cartel reputation. The Geologists are casters so 1/2 the time they can’t Dodge or Parry which makes killing pretty easy. I can burn through them fast enough that I’m limited almost purely by my ability to generate energy. Hopefully I’ll get both pets before I get Exalted. I’ll need to kill about 11,000 Geologists and the Macaw rate is about 1:10,000 so it should work out just perfectly. I’ll hopefully finish sometime in 2012.
edit: the below is out-of-date as +8 stam food is no longer available
The other side-perk is that there’s Crocs just on the edge of the Geologists and they drop Tender Crocolisk Meat, which is one of the two sources for our +8 stam food. Bloodsail mobs are lower level, but for some odd reason, most of them drop the next higher healing pot, which f2p can’t use. So between the pots and Croc meat, the Geologists are better to farm (imo).
