Critter Kill Squad – the easy way!

Looking to bag the Critter Kill Squad and/or Crittergeddon achievements?   Deeprun Rats are easy to kill and respawn like crazy.

  • Use a hunter toon, and make sure you’re tracking the achievement so you can see your progress.
  • Get the fastest bow you can for that hunter.  At level one, that would probably be this.
  • Get that hunter to the Ironforge end of the Deeprun Tram.
  • Go to the wall opposite the doorway to Ironforge, then turn around and face the doorway.  You should be centered with the doorway.
  • Create this macro in WoW:
    /tar Deeprun
    /cast shoot
  • Drag the icon for above mentioned macro onto your hotbar and bind it to a key  (I used my F key).
  • Keep pressing the above bound key over and over, every 2 seconds or so.
  • Pretty soon you’ll have killed all the critters you need!

Now, if you absolutely need to step away from your computer for some reason but still want to keep killin’ critters, you can get AutoHotKey and use this macro.  It is set to begin when you hit Ctrl+Alt+F, and will mash your F key every 2.1 seconds.  Hit Ctrl+Alt+F again to turn off the loop.

PressKey := ! PressKey   ;Toggle PressKey True/False
Loop
{
If ! PressKey
Break         ;If PressKey is False, stop pressing key
Send f
Sleep 2100      ;Delay between keypresses
}
Return
#MaxThreadsPerHotkey 1

If your hunter is Level 1, you might want to put a cheap scope on your bow for a little added oomph.  Even though the rats have very little health, if you shoot at one and miss, he could run behind your character and start attacking.  If you’re away from your keyboard for any length of time, one of these little rodents might make a meal of your hunter.
