I'm mostly a solo player so I don't have many frustrating group stories. By far my most frustrating moment in recent memory has been trying to tame a Spirit Beast. At least with instances you can find solace in the fact that with better communication, coordination and strategy you can improve and overcome your obstacle. Hunting the Spirit Beast is pure dumb luck. There's very little you can do to increase your chances. Strategy? Fly around Sholazar for a few hours a day for a couple of weeks. Hopefully you'll eventually be in the right place at the right time. If he spawns on the opposite of the map and someone kills/tames him there's no way for you to know and you'll keep on wasting your time flying around in circles.Blizzard, I understand what you were going for with the Spirit Beast. You want an ultra rare pet. I get it, but if you're going to do that, can you at least make the process of getting that pet a little more interesting? Flying around the same zone for dozens of hours is not interesting gameplay. Heck, at the very least you can let us know that the spirit beast was killed or tamed somehow while we're online. Something like a zone wide emote "Loque'Nahak lets out a cry as he feels his life slipping away" or something like that. At least then we can quit for the night and go do something else.

I'm pretty convinced that Loque knows when you're looking for him (and refuses to show), so I quit the hardcore hunt and would do two zone passes a day, before and after doing the Oracle dailies.I got him a little under a week ago. During my pass I saw King Krush, so I ran back to unstable my pet, killed him, got Northern Exposure achievement. Restabled pet, continued my pass for kicks, and, right at the western gorilla spawn point, there was Loque. Tamed him less than five minutes after killing Krush. O_oI'm pretty sure I used up all my good karma for the next month that day. Got Krush, Loque, the Higher Learning Achievement, Champion of the Frozen Wastes, and the critter and pest achievements. Yoinks.
