Archaeology Pets

9

The following pets are available through various branches of the archaeology profession.

Dwarf

Clockwork Gnome – requires 100x Dwarf Fragments (including up to 3x Dwarf Rune Stones)

Flavour text: Mechagnomes were created by the titans, apparently as servants and caretakers, much like the earthen. This mechagnome was likely damaged because it is no longer focused on its original tasks and seems content to follow you.

Fossil

Fossilized Hatchling - requires 85x Fossil fragments

Flavour text: When you finished assembling this tiny skeleton through some eldritch magic, the little critter sprang back to life. He’s a pretty good pet. Since he’s a skeleton, he doesn’t eat much.

Fossilized Raptor + Fossilized Hatchling

As a bonus, the Fossilized Raptor may be discovered under the same branch of archaeology using another 100x Fossil fragments to complete.

Pterrordax Hatchling – requires 120x Fossil Fragments

Flavour text: It’s an adorable green baby pterrordax! Luckily, at this size, her sonic screeches won’t turn your eardrums to bloody pulps and while she’ll TRY to eat your face, it just feels like friendly little lizard-bird-thing kisses. Awww!

Troll

Voodoo Figurine – requires 100x Troll Fragments (including up to 3x Troll Tablets)

Flavour text: Voodoo figurines such as this were built and animated to assist troll witch doctors in minor, everyday tasks such as washing loincloths or scrubbing blood off the hut floor. They were often powered by flasks of mojo, troll sweat, the flesh of tribal enemies, or by DEVOURING TINY PORTIONS OF THEIR OWNERS’ SOULS. But don’t worry. Teeny, tiny little portions. You won’t even notice they’re gone. And think how clean your floors will be!

Tol’vir

Crawling Claw – requires 150x fragments (including up to 3x Tol’vir Hieroglyphic)

Flavour text: A legend among the tol’vir tells of a wicked djinn whom the Ramkahen sought to destroy.  In an attempt to prevent his own death, the djinn tried to transfer his spirit into the body of a monkey.  He was slain right in the middle of the transference, and only a fraction of his essence had moved over – only enough to possess the monkey’s paw.

Crawling Claw

I look forward to seeing more archaeology pets in Warlords of Draenor and beyond.

Winter Veil Wishlist

0

I just missed out on this by a hair so last week’s Shared Topic comes to us from Noahdear:

Winter Veil is around the corner and it’s time to sit upon Greatfather Winter’s lap and answer the important question, “What do you want for Winter Veil?” Is it that expensive grand expedition yak? a nice transmog custom outfit? or a Red Ryder carbine-action, two hundred shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock?

What is on your Winter Veil wishlist?

Funnily enough, I had started this post a few days ago as I wanted to see how my list differed from my previous one written earlier in the year. I’m happy to report that I can mark one of those off my list. :)

There have always been a number of items I’d love to have in-game, although some are more possible than others. A few I’ve even written about like the NPC of my character but in more of a Lara Croft type feel than an Indiana Jones or Tyrande one. Completing my Val’anyr will be one of those things that require time, patience and a lot of luck.

A few pets also rank high on that list with the Collector’s Edition companion pets from vanilla and BC. But the Ethereal Soul-Trader, Lil’ Tarecgosa and Tyrael’s Hilt have all been on that wish list as well. The Onyx Panther will be made one day (most likely at the end of the expansion).

However, I couldn’t finish this list without adding the three spirit pets I’ve been religiously trying to collect each day. If only I listened to my own recommendation and picked the Thundering pet as my reward that first day. Each time I fail, the drive to beat him becomes even stronger so I’ve been known to stay there for a while on some days. If only the amount of attempts (in consecutive battle moves) gave us a higher chance of getting the pet from the reward bag. I’ve had so many long battles with him that I would surely have the pet by now.

Although the Darkmoon Eye will have to wait until next month, I’m comforted by the fact that Jeremy’s team is a lot easier to defeat. Lastly, the remaining ones from the classic raids seem the most doable right now – if not for their elusive drops.

Hmm, I sensing a theme here… I may have a pet fetish. (Like you didn’t know that already…)

No matter, here’s to marking as many of these off my list.

Soul-ofthe-Aspects

Soul of the Aspects

7

Coolidge surprised me with a birthday gift today, the Soul of the Aspects pet I’ve been coveting since it came out.

When I opened my email this morning, the title read Coolidge has purchased… in the title box. I was secretly hoping that this was the gift and I was right. :D

So here I am on the Heart of the Aspects mount with matching Soul of the Aspects pet. Both available from the Blizzard Store.

But what’s a birthday without some cake – Delicious Chocolate Cake anyone? Cool was kind enough to make me one across the ocean.

Later I’ll be writing about the Dath’remar Fashion Show so stay tuned…
