That’s right Karoma ate Skoll. I was on my way to CoC(Crucible of Carnage), which btw gives good experience points for pets, to help my guildies when… I found Karoma. What karma?
_NPCscan and Silverdragon went off and I dismounted. That’s when Karoma one shot Skoll. I couldn’t believe it. I thought this must be sign. Karoma wants me to tame him and be my new spirit beast and DPS pet. He was red and aggressive to me on my Beast Tracking and crazy huge compared to Skoll. Before I could tame him I had to back off a little, Feign Death, Revive Pet, Dismiss Pet, then drop the Freezing Trap, and cast Tame Pet. I was epic fast.
Then I specced him like so…
Karoma Spec (DPS, PVE)
The spec allows your pet to get to next add after the first one dies lightning fast or get to the boss when they jump or run far away. The spec and logic behind it is awesome sauce and I take no credit. Thank you Frostheim. Karoma also moves so fast that he gets to the next boss before I can manually switch targets. How amazing is that?
Skoll used to be my DPS 5-man heroics pet and I do believe this soloing spec helps the healers with healing my pet and myself. This spec with Spirit Mend also allowed my pet to tank 3 mobs with Growl turned on, in a heroic after the tank and 2 dps died with the healer still up.
Skoll Spec (Solo, Pet Tank)
So why did Blizzard add more spirit beasts? ‘Cause they are more leet than most non-BM hunters think. It is time to re-spec you MM and SV hunters and tame one.
‘Til next time…
