I came in to post some of this stuff :)

I also noticed two very interesting items now in the database:

http://beta.wowdb.com/items/112325-trai ... of-testing
http://beta.wowdb.com/items/112267-trai ... of-testing

Now, they could be only for Alpha/Beta testing and won't make it to Live. But I'm drooling at the mere prospect of these being in the game.

I'm seriously considering buying 2 extra Vengeful Porcs right now in case that goes live, then I can rehome them with friends afterwards I suppose.

@Peanutty - that sounds like a good idea. Especially since they can be found relatively cheap for a level 1.

Maybe not so cheap anymore... I just checked several servers and there weren't any in the AH! Managed to snag one on a lower pop server but looks like other people are thinking the same as me.

They must be the leveling stones that were given as a teaser a while back from a twitter. Thank god it's only one level and not all the way to 25.

I kind of wish it was more than one level. Even though all my pets are level 25, I think having an epic stone grant 5 levels would be nice. For me, one level really is not very exciting.

Isn't it likely that the "of Testing" bit means it's for test purposes only? Can't honestly see the purpose of a levelling stone that grants one level, when you can gain 7-8 levels from a single trainer battle.

Blizzard often does silly things in alpha builds. If the achievement is implemented it won't be 3 Vengeful Porcupette but something more reasonable. That's why it's labeled [TEST].

It probably isn´t a bad investment to buy two veng porcs now anyway. TI will probably be getting cross-realmed next expansion, but I still dont´think many people will be grinding these things out. Even if they don´t add this achievement, you will still be able to make a profit, and if they do add this achieve, you will be able to get it, and make a huge profit selling your lvl 25s afterwards.

Also, just a quick personal opinion. this is exactly the wrong thing to do. I think one of the biggest problems with pet battles is that they allow you to use 2 or 3 of the same pet. It makes slightly OP pets even more OP if you can have 2 of them on your team.

Exactly my thinking. I finally did pick up 2 more at a decent price, and have already handed one off as a gift with the understanding that I may need to borrow it next xpac. :) The spare should sell easily once players come back for MoP.
