Lurking Owl Kitten — Pet of the Month: September 2016

September 23, 2016
Lurking Owl Kitten - Pet of the Month September 2016

Is it a cat or is it an owl? Either way, it is absolutely adorable! This month we're covering the Lurking Owl Kitten.

Collecting the Lurking Owl Kitten
Lurking Owl Kitten
The Lurking Owl Kitten has the best of both worlds — part feather and part furry fluff, plus 100% cuteness.

To collect this pet, you will need to be level 110 and complete the initial storyline that unlocks access to Suramar. This quest chain starts in Dalaran, and satisfies the Nightfallen objective in the meta-achievement Nightfallen But Not Forgotten.

Once this group of quests is complete, head north along the main road. NPCs at a small camp northeast of Falanaar (near the northern-most Suramar flightpath) will have a few tasks for you, one of which is herding nearby owl kittens.

Getting your targets to move can be tricky, and it's easier to "push" the owl kittens while dismounted. Simply stand behind them and slowly direct them toward the quest giver. But this pet definitely takes after its finicky feline relatives, and the Lurking Owl Kitten may not be so easily convinced to go in the direction you'd like them to.

Once you've completed You've Got to Be Kitten Me Right Meow, it rewards the pet. This quest is part of the Eminent Grow-main section of the meta-achievement Good Suramaritan.

The Lurking Owl Kitten is a one of a kind companion, one that collectors don't want to miss out on. It can be caged and traded/sold, but the quest is worth trying out just to see how well you can herd owl kittens!

Battling with the Lurking Owl Kitten
The Lurking Owl Kitten combines some of the best parts of Owls and Kittens into one squeezable cute package. In terms of battling, it's a bit heavier on the Kitten than the Owl, sharing four abilities and the Beast family type with cats.

First, they share the straightforward damage ability Claw. The Owl Kitten has the same second slot abilities as cats. Screech decreases your opponent's speed, while Rake decreases the damage dealt by their next attack. Lastly is Prowl, a powerful third slot ability which increases damage done by the Owl Kitten's next attack.

The trade off here is, no Devour, which is central to any longevity a cat may have in battle. The other cat ability, Prowl, does have a higher throughput than Claw. In their place, the Owl Kitten gains a couple of Flying moves. There's Quills, which is a relatively straightforward multi-hit DPS move.

Lurking Owl Kitten using Feathered Frenzy
Lastly is Feathered Frenzy (example above), which you may remember from Vesharr in Spires of Arak. This makes the Lurking Owl Kitten take damage as though it were a Flying pet for one round, in addition to a damage multiplier. It's an interesting move which may be used tactically to great effect, both from the multiplier and the family swap.

The Lurking Owl Kitten ends up being a unique pet, both in moves and with its adorable model? Did I mention it's cute?
