Are there some pets or animals that would be considered hard to get or rare, this is a question mostly for people who have a ranger or have an idea.
I just recently found an Eagle and it was just randomly flying around alone and I ran after it a good amount of time until I caught it, I consider it to be pretty rare to get it as I have yet to see more of them anywhere... --- Silent Hill:The Missing Link (Fan-Made Movie) - Part 1: http://youtu.be/Qpp3MT4P0co - Part 2: http://youtu.be/WLHkghr8IXs - Part 3: http://youtu.be/_BIGrkntc3A
The plain wolf was a pain in the ass for me to get. I had to go into World vs World to get it and have not seen them in the main world yet. I have seen the Juvi Eagle twice now but only when on my warrior and not my ranger.
The Shark might be rare, I only know one place to get it, but if you are a human chances are you will be spending quite some time in that area anyways so it may be more common then I think.
I'm sure at a certain level, none of them are really rare anymore, but you have to go pretty far out of your way and high-tail it past a lot of higher-level enemies to pick up some like the Murrelow or Snow Owl early on. Shark was kinda hard to pick up too. Anything surrounded by archers 3x your Lv is rough, lol.
I know they all have some strengths and weaknesses.....some have better damage, some last longer...but are any must haves?
It seemed to me that the early pets were super weak, but now (on my Norn Ranger) I got a White Moa bird and an Ice Drake and both of them can solo a mob of the same level just fine. Idk if it's the pets themselves or if they are just particularly durable.
