Hello A3ers!

The A3 Team is going to be taking their seasonal break between October 14th through October 20th. During this time adoptions will be closed and there will be no regular newsletter. Member invitations will still be open but may be slower than usual. Responses to questions and events may also come slower than usual. If you need assistance during this time, though, you can still reach out to Wakamaru via Private Message on the forum or Direct Message on Discord, post in the #support channel on Discord, or post in the Questions and Answers subforum. A3ers in the official A3 Discord are always helpful as well. If you haven't joined yet, now is a great time to check it out! Server: https://discord.gg/cEvrX4a

Thank you,
Waka.

BREWFEST DONATION DRIVE

The Brewfest has begun in WoW and so has A3's Donation Drive for Brewfest pets! Sadly there were no new goodies for this years festivities. Brewfest donation drive pets include: Stout Alemental. The A3 Brewfest Donation Drive also includes some non-event brew-themed pets so that members can participate if they don't have the time to farm a ton of currency. Bonus donation drive pets include: Skunky Alemental, Lil' Leftovers, and Enchanted Cauldron.

Tiers for this donation drive are 0, 10, and 20. Members who contribute at least 2 pets to the drive will also have the option of choosing a Ghost Shark as their prize!

Although you are welcome to send us Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm and Wolpertinger pets from Brewfest, they are not part of the donation drive. We are very well stocked on Pachyderms and overstocked on Wolpertingers.

You have until 11:59pm October 10, 2017 to submit your entries!
Wild Pet Capture Service
Above all else... A3 loves collecting pets! Collection doesn't just stop at pets that can be traded and adopted though - there are a few worlds' worth of wild pets out there waiting for collectors, too! A few of us would like to offer our love of hunting wild pets to A3 members to help them also round out their wild pet needs.

Each week (sometimes a few times each week!) we will comb zones to help members find the wild pets they are still after. We will turn a zone upside-down and inside-out looking for your pet(s) and message you once we've found them. You will then come and capture it! If you would like to take advantage of this service, but aren't available during our typical times, please don't hesitate to contact us and ask about alternative days and times.

Specifications Allowed

✔ Both Factions
✔ All Zones
✔ All Pets
✔ Any Quality
✔ Any Breed
✔ Any Specifics (color, size, etc.)

Pet Suppliers
Do you want to help supply pets for adoption that A3 needs? We have a Pet Suppliers thread where members can sign up to sponsor certain pets they are willing to supply. When the supply of certain pets starts to run low or we have an upcoming project where we’ll need more of a certain pet – we’ll send out a notification about that pet to our suppliers! There is no guess work and no 24/7 farming because we’ll let you know when we’re in need of the pets.

There are no quotas to meet when supplying the pets that you signed up for. You can provide whatever amount you are comfortable with.

New supply options were recently added! New options include common vendor and non-Legion pets.


There are 100's of supply options available, but below you will find the newest options added to the supply request sign-up sheet. These options are especially in need of suppliers right now.

Please note that the sign-up sheet is organized according to which expansion each pet was introduced in, not the expansion "zone" that they are found in.

Adoptions
Whether entering a one-time competition or requesting your weekly pets, please remember these essential tips so your requests and entries aren't disqualified.

  •   Remember to keep an active level 20+ character attached to your site profile. It is a good idea to log in to this character before posting adoption requests to refresh your armory information.

      Please remember to check what pets you have before submitting requests! Add-ons don't always display things accurately.

      Please remember to report your request list if you acquire a pet you have requested. We've modified our system so that even if your post has already been flagged you can still report and make changes.

Connecting A3ers through Discord
Image
A3 is always looking for new and interesting ways to connect with its members. One of our greatest hurdles, though, is connecting members to each other. With everyone playing on different servers, different factions, and the limitations of the friends list – many of you have probably never had a chance to connect. We hope to use the Discord App to help solve that!

The major perk of an app like Discord is that communication is live. Meaning – you can see it on the fly (assuming you are logged in). This will be an advantage over the forum or twitter where you need to check in throughout the day. It will be especially helpful with organizing groups, sharing rare spawn information with others, or just getting to know your fellow A3ers!

Help Support A3
Did you know that A3 has bills? It’s true! A3 has monthly and yearly bills related to the cost of operating the Agency. Operating costs are the costs required to run the community – these do not include the costs of sponsoring giveaways.

A3 is a volunteer operated project and we need the help of our members to keep the site online. Currently, about 4% of our members contribute to the to these operating costs and around 1% have contributed more than once.

A few spare dollars here and there can go a long way! Donations are accepted through PayPal and Patreon.
For more information about donating financially please visit our Supporter's Page.
