Pet Spotlight: Spirit Crab
You gotta feel bad for these guys. I mean, everybody eats crabs, but do you really consider how they might feel about the situation? Well apparently they got good and pissed off; so much so that they came back from the dead to put a hurtin’ on some murlocs.
Spirit Crab quickly became one of my favorite pets when I noticed that it was an Undead with a fairly powerful Aquatic attack in the form of Whirlpool. Its ridiculously slow speed is no bother; since it’s Undead, it still gets to attack on the round it’s killed. And the round afterward, as well. This makes Spirit Crab especially useful against fast enemy pets. As you’ll see in my strategy guides, Spirit Crab makes several appearances; he’s on my Favorites list for a reason.
Getting your own Spirit Crab means you’ll have to make a trip to the Ghostlands, just south of Silvermoon City. Horde players can just port to Silvermoon and ride south, but Alliance players will have to go a different route. I recommend porting to Shattrath and taking the portal to Isle of Quel’Danas; then take the flight path down to Zul’Aman, and ride west to the coast. Note that you still can’t fly in Ghostlands. These little guys are plentiful on the coast, but since they are level 3-ish, it will probably take you a while to scare up a blue. It took me a little less than an hour, but it was well worth it. There are two breeds: Breed 6 (H/H, pictured above) and Breed 9 (H/S). The previously mentioned slowness of this pet makes Breed 6 superior.
