Just finished Beware of the "Unbeatable?" Pterodactyl and it made me motion sick  :-[ Wow I was glad to have that done.  I am going back and trying to finish Coming Down the Mountain.

I just finished Redridge with my hunter. Bravo Company was awesome. Shame they all died. I kind'a feel responsible. If only I'd finished that dragon off quicker.
 
One thing I don't get as a hunter...you have your pet's action bar with buttons for stuff like bite and growl but I can never click on them. It always tells me "that action is not ready" or some shit like that. Do you ever click on them or are they automatic? They're always glowing like they're active but I've never once been able to click on them and have anything happen.
 
I also occasionally get the message that I have a new pet talent point available but I can't find any pet talent tree. Where's that?

Ok I figured out the pet talents. The reason I wasn't seeing it is I was looking when I didn't have my pet summoned, like when I'm on horseback or on the griffon. If your pet's not there you don't have the pet tab on your talent screen.
 
Still can't figure out that pet action bar, though.

I found the pet action bar a bit confusing too! I never ran a hunter until now. My wife's main is a hunter so, her input helped.

I've never clicked on it but I still have the baby seal button. Isn't that "passive?"
 
I just keep my pet set to not attack anything until it attacks me or I give the attack command.

nope... no baby seal option here... don't know if its an 80+ thing... but it was really great to use to pull a mob out of a group... or saving your pet when you have to bail... I've been rezzing my pet more now than ever...

tho hunter replenish "focus" ALOT quicker than we ever did with mana... and we shoot quicker out of the gate...

Killed Blazewing in Hyjal by my lonesome last night lvl81 silver drops a rare lvl85 leather kilt with 2 slots... Lets see who bites at my price on the AH...

Then I'll feel ok about buying master flying...

Hhhmmm...my hunter is only 45 and I have the baby seal button. I'll have to jump on tonight and check it out.
 
I use the "follow" command when I have to bail. Pet usually makes it but not always. If he's being attacked by 4 or 5 baddies he'll usually die. It makes me feel bad that I abandoned him to save my own ass.

My 80 Rogue main (who I still haven't touched since I came back) still just has the slow-ass griffon you first got when you hit 70. I've never been able to afford the epic mount. I got exalted with the Wyrmrest Accord so I can get the epic drake, I'm just a few G's short of the flight training.

I have the albino drake as well...

I do really want a hippogryph... Personally there should be racial flying mounts as well as land mounts... A Pterradrax for trolls, a mechano drake for gnomes, etc...

I love that we can fly in cities now, but they REALLY have to put a no fly zone around banks and AHs...

LOL totally, I hate running Winter Grasp because of that, I usually go farm and come back after the fact and turn in.

You know D, if you and that lovely Wife of yours are looking for more toons on another server you can come play with me on Lightbringer

I HATE that too but since the expansion installation I noticed that the exclamation/question mark hovers above whoever is sitting on top of the quest giver. If your camera is zoomed in, it's easy to miss. I usually play with the camera zoomed all the way out and a couple of times I still had to move the camera up to target the quest giver. PAy attention to that. I might be wrong. Maybe I just got lucky? These were situations where people were being obvious dicks and crowding around the quest givers.

Heh, I'm at 104 mounts so far... the most important mount for me won't be along until April or May... I'm working on "What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been"... can't complete it until sometime just before summer fire festival (whatever the last world event is before then)... All that for the violet protodrake (and the free 310 flying skill)... I just refuse to spend 5k gold on that right now....

Also, upgraded my vid card from the onboard that came with my 3 year old computer to an Nvidia GeForce GTS250 from PNY... went from 15fps on low graphic setting in Stormwind (when nobody was around) to 60fps on High setting at peak hours... the difference is AMAZING....

Here's a screenshot of my Hunter showing the passive button. I have it on the far right of the pet action bar.
 

 
Here's another with me mousing over the button.
