Pet Perks

Last year, I debated whether I should buy StarCraft II: the Complete Trilogy for the 2 pets I didn’t have. Namely, Mini Thor from Wings of Liberty and the Archon pet from the new expansion. At the time, I couldn’t justify buying the whole collection when I’d already paid half so paying another AUD$129.95 when I’d already paid $64.90 seemed a bit extreme. A few days ago, they introduced a saving of up to 50% on...

Baby Winston

Players who pre-purchased Overwatch: Origins, were rewarded with a cute little version of Winston – one of the heroes in Overwatch today. Baby Winston has many of the abilities his counterpart has – only more adorable. His idle animations are similar to his pet abilities but he will also adjust his glasses and scratch his backside.  Adorably cuddly and highly intellectual, the Baby Winston pet will be at your side as you...

No Epic Battle Stones

Great news everyone! Blizzard have decided not to introduce epic battle stones in Legion and I have to say, it’s definitely a relief for all the reasons mentioned below. Having over 700 unique pets would have been an overwhelming task for anyone who felt they needed to upgrade their whole collection to stay competitive or at least have a distinct advantage against other players or even tamers. Here’s how Kaivax explained...

Terky Hunt

Terky was only available to Taiwanese players for a short time but a White Murloc Egg has recently been discovered in an abandoned cave in the Borean Tundra. First, you’ll need to head towards that high tower in Riplash Ruins (56, 88) and dive when you get to the small rock jutting out of the far left corner. You only need to dive a short distance to see a few strands of long green seaweed and then a couple of purple outgrowths...

Pet Additions – 6.2.2

As you take to the skies, be sure to head to Nagrand as the patch adds three new rares to the non-instanced version of Highmaul. The best part is, they each drop a pet but you may need to kill them more than once for your little manafiend. To make it easier, bring a friend as these rares can be quite tough to kill. Apart from their identical run-of-the-mill abilities between levels 1 and 15, it’s their level 20 ability which...

The Price of a Pet

Digital goodies are nothing new when it comes to Collector’s Editions and when pets are involved, that’s a pretty huge draw for me. However, that wasn’t always the case. I remember lining up for the midnight launch of the Burning Crusade with Navimie when they asked if we’d like to buy the Collector’s Edition. When we asked what the difference was, he said some stuff (which I can’t remember) and a...
