April Fool's Breeds

Postby Mykro9 » April 1st, 2014, 12:25 pm

I know it is all in fun, but I REALLY want a 'Rainbow Ombre', 'Steel Panther', 'Stinging Sunflower', and 'Carpnado' :cry:

Anyway, share which of the 'breeding' pets you liked.

Totally agree, these are way more awesome than anything I expect from WoD. Fantastic job; companion cube and carpnado are especially hilarious. The photoshopping is superb as well.

I'd have to collect them all! :D

But I would be happiest to see the Rainbow Ombre & the Stinging Sunflower. :lol:

*deep breath*

So let me see if I understand this correctly.

The info & news shared in the article titled "Pets Getting Busy in WoD" is all an April's Fool joke?

None of it is real or even going to happen or be implemented in any way?

Would appreciate it if the caretakers or reliable sources answer this question please. :(

It is an April Fool's joke. Look back in time and you will see that this site offers jokes every year.

I thought it was great because it started off believable with the Huijin Hatchling and Rainbow Ombre but by the carpnado was clearly a joke.

They're all good. Like the photoshop work on Rainbow Ombre and Steel Panther especially. :)

Arma N'Leg made me laugh out loud. :lol:

WTB Carpnadoooooo! And the Companion Cube (sadly that'll never happen).

What would happen if you then bred Carpnado and the C.Cube? Companion-Cubenado? A cube of carp?

I for one was frightened by it!!! The thought of collecting some of the harder pets again....Then when I saw Carpnado I sighed relief at April 1st.

Depressingly, I knew it was an april fool from the beginning, because there's no way Bliz is going to put as much effort into breeding as was put into this.

I was well aware of the date when I read this, but some of these look really good. I liked the Huijin Hatchling, Rainbow Ombre, Steel Panther, and Dinocroc the best (Dino Croc reminded me of Yoshi a little).

Who knows, we might actually get these as legit pets once day from rare drops and whatnot (A collector can dream).

All that I could think of was, "Good luck breeding two calico cats!"

Fishsticks, but of course.

My favorites were the Rainbow Ombre and the Steel Panther. ;)

I started WarcraftPets a while back, and I was genuinely fooled by the multiple pet one, where the more pets you have out, the lower resolution each pet got. Of course, then I realized that by the 8-bit versions it was a joke, but the first couple of photoshopped images were very believeable.

I actually came to the site just to see what joke they had this year. Always well done. I'm just glad they never implemented the one where we had to clean up our pet's poop.

We all know Blizz likes poop... hehe :mrgreen:

I thought they did an awesome job w/ the pets, artwork and description and fooled many in the process ( though there were hints that I picked up on ) It gave me a great laugh. Just loved the imagination and images. Great work folks and greatly appreciated :)) :lol:
