Sneaking into Durotar (on a PvP server) as my level 13 nightelf hunter. My goal was to tame the (then) fast-attacking, rare spawn scorpid. I recall actually taking a nap beforehand so i could get up at 1am to avoid the masses of horde that would be running about the zone. Upon first reaching Ashenvale i ACTUALLY paused at the Darkshore border. I had NEVER entered a contested zone before and was looking at a level 21 wolf off in the distance with apprehension. Still, i managed to cross the zone with only one death (damn bears!) and reach the large river that runs down past Orgimmar and the Barrens. I took a screenshot of the massive Org bridge as i snuck under it, hid in a tree as a lvl ?? flew over me (yes, even though the hordie was on an fp, i felt like he was going to jump out of nowhere in a few seconds and GET me). Finally, near the riverbank at the edge of a mountain i found the black and red scorpid i sought. I'll be honest, i hearthed out of there like a madman as soon as my taming succeeded. But it was a grand adventure and more than a few guildie's jaws hit the floor the following day when they realized where my new pet had come from.And i still have that scorpid!

Good choice.I always found the corrupted Scorpid to look incredibly neat.I have mine still too from when I started to play.http://www.wow-petopia.com/html/mobs/mob_corruptedscorpid.html

I love the scorpids too. My hunter is BM and just hit Northrend, so I just grabbed a rhino and a worm, but my scorpid is still my fave! Had him since like lvl 22ish. I have the kind of mint green skinned one. It was a total pain taming him though! The area where they are is very difficult because it's hard to pull just one thing, one thing usually comes with 3 little bug friends and the mobs are really close together etc.I also love their animations. The swim one is really cute and the one where he randomly raises his claws in the air trips me out constantly.
