I've been out of the game for a few months. I have a lot of catching up to do...

The lore of this pet is a reference to the short story "The Monkey's Paw" by William Wymark Jacobs, though it was likely also inspired by Thing from The Addams Family. It has a similar finger-walking animation too.

The dance is a /command you can give him. Also, he'll occasionally cast a spell and make nature grow! Taking after his namesake, he's the most eco-friendly pet so far.

I'm convinced Blizzard reads my comments, because every time I mention my love of miniaturized raid bosses, they give me a new one.

Did I mention he also serves as a cooking fire? Awesome!

A diamond in the rough. A hidden, bonus pet for those dedicated enough to quest themselves into unconsciousness. Luckily, I've never been the sharpest hammer in the drawer, so I'll be grinding out this lil' guy in short order.

A pet I actually have to work for?! Blizzard, you sly dog, you.

Poor Withers. He's so thirsty yet incapable of retaining water.

...

A lesser person would make a constipation joke out of that, but not me.

I worked my fingers to the bone, labored day in and day out, walked up hill (in the snow) both ways, just to get this pet. Now that I have him, I find myself missing the journey; the end result is awesome but uneventful. Blizzard, give me another impossible pet, please. I live for the road.

This smelly little snot ate my cat. :(

Re: Deathy
This is my first BlizzCon-exclusive pet, and what a way to kick it off. Of course, I regret every pet I've missed, but some more than others. This is one that I'd probably be kicking myself if I wasn't able to add to my collection, if only because I wouldn't be able to participate in those late night Dalaran showcases.

Though he's the original, I don't find Mini Diablo quite on the same level as Mini Tyrael on the epic scale. Amazing what a few years and a higher polygon count can do, huh?

Mini Tyrael stands apart as one of those pets that isn't just some goofy time sink that others look down upon. Many a hardened troll have paused at the sight and asked where they could acquire one.

Regrettably, I'm one of those on the outside looking in; my best chance at snatching a piece of awesomeness is throwing $900.00 at eBay. Or maybe we'll see a reemergence with the upcoming Diablo 3 collector's edition? Make it happen, Blizz.

I am happy for those lucky few who have this glorious pet, and appreciative of what pets I've received in exchange. With luck, we'll see it on western shores someday soon...

Or we'll all wallow in misery at the notion that it'll remain tentatively out of reach forever...

... That last one sounds better.

I'll probably buy this lil' guy next. Hell, I already dropped $100 on Mini-Thor, what's another $20 between friends?

... I'm gonna need a second job.

Is it odd that I purchased the special edition version of StarCraft 2 exclusively for this pet? I don't regret it - my bank account does.

Re: Willy
Children's Week is coming up again soon, and I can't wait to play with my little Willy.

...Heh.

I greatly prefer the wind rider cub over the gryphon hatchling, and not just because I'm Horde. My adorable bundle of lion-esque fluff hearkens back to a more innocent time of my childhood, when I used to come home from school and watch Tiny Toons.

Hopefully from now on, everyone will see Buster whenever they look at their wind rider cub. I know I do.

A recent hotfix just issued the gag order to my most outspoken pet. I understand that some other players might find Lil' XT annoying, but they should realize that I call him out for their amusement! Not mine! I can listen to him anytime I want!

I received this little bundle of love yesterday after five grueling days of cross-realm insanity. Was it worth it? I must admit, it was hard, but when I summoned him for the first time, I found him inexPUGnable.

...What? Breanni used that one too? Sonofa -

Once again, my heart melts for a miniaturized version of a raid boss. Oh Blizzard, how many more tiny (fiery) bundles of love must you drop into my lap? My romantic soul cannot handle having so many adorable critters in my stores yet being able to use only one at a time. It's cruel, I tell you! CRUEL!

Finding a dwarf rogue to complete the meta achievement was fantastically frustrating, but ultimately worth it. New pets are always worth the hassle in the end, but this one goes the extra mile by having it mailed to you by the delightfully diminutive Breanni. One of only four such pets, I think?

I'm happier than a kobold with a candle that this pet is on its way out. Onyxia has always been a favorite encounter of mine and re-releasing the dungeon for the new expansion was a wonderful bit of fan appreciation on Blizzard's part. This goes the extra mile, however, by giving every player a piece of that nostalgia that they can carry around with them.

Did I mention it deep breathes?! EPIC!

The Rocket Chicken is the first step in a elaborate world domination plot orchestrated by a group of gnomes and goblins that have put aside their differences and decided to combine their mechanical expertise. The Rocket Chicken itself isn't that frightening, sure, but when they reveal the Rocket Bear, oh-ho-ho! The world will tremble!

I like this pet solely because I like the Gorlocs. They're my top favorite WoW race for a number of reasons, though their overall likability and personable attitudes are the main reason. Of course, this also means that my least favorite WoW race are the Wolvar, especially the blasphemous Frenzyheart Tribe. The Oracles just want to be left alone, you jerks! Stop attacking their patrols and destroying their altars!

Stupid puppy-men...

Re: Frosty
Frosty is another pet I regret I'll never own. I didn't feel bad about missing out on the Netherwing Whelp from Burning Crusade but my lack of Frosty brings a single chilly tear to my eye...

Re: Grunty
I have half a mind to actually spend the $60 or so bucks to buy Grunty. Sure that sounds ridiculous and I agree, it is, but I still want one. I'm a huge Starcraft geek and I know that I have a much smaller chance of getting the Zergling pet, so I figure burning the cash on Grunty would be a worthwhile investment in the long run.

Maybe they'll add a Protoss pet to the game some day...

It breaks my heart knowing I'll never be able to get Murkimus. Sure he's adorable (as all murloc infants are), but that's not why I want him. I want him because he's a Spartan, and my PvP performance could only be bolstered with him in my ranks. He brings centuries of combat experience to the field, after all.

This lil' guy was what motivated me to make an account here, THAT'S how much I love Lil' K.T. Everything about him is flawless, down to the inherent humor involved in carting around a miniature version of Kel'Thuzad, to his assorted evil laughs, to his penchant for blasting errant critters with magic ice. Why would anyone not want to add Lil' K.T. to their collection?
