This is an achievement I’ve been wanting to do for a while, I just needed to wait until I found a day where I wouldn’t be interrupted.
I set the game stop watch and it took me 4hr 49min. I was doing this on one toon though; I was a bit worried that swapping between alliance and horde toons might cause a conflict so I decided just to do it all on the horde druid. She has her hearth set to Pandaria with all the portals and can use the cataclysm portals in Orgrimmar as well as teleport to Moonglade so she’s pretty much got every continent covered with the minimum of fuss.
I started with Kalimdor and then moved in order of expansion; Outland, Northrend, Cataclysm and then Pandaria. It wasn’t too bad, but I was finding myself getting a tad cranky with the RNG on the Flowing Pandarian Spirit. He kept killing my team that I use to beat him with every day, so I ended up giving up on him in disgust and came back to him last. I had a moments worry when I finished and I didn’t get the achievement until I realised somehow I had over looked a Northrend tamer so a quick trip back there was needed.
It gave quite a good amount of rewards. I got 3 battles stones from the bags; undead, humanoid and a beast. You also get a non-family specific stone as the achievement reward (still bugged; I had to submit a ticket to get the stone sent to me). Selling the junk from the bags netted 976g and a ton of bandages along with magical mini-treats, biscuits and grooming kits. It was definitely a good achievement to do but I don’t know if I’d want to do it again in one stretch like that again.
I made a printable checklist of all the tamers which made it easier to just tick off the ones I had done. You can download it here: Tamer checklist.
