Best idea for a new pet with the Pocket Lint

Postby Abbotta » March 18th, 2015, 7:39 am

So today I had both Harrison Jones and Kura in my garrison. I always found it's entertaining to open up the garrison to full raid level while doing my garrison chores. Great way to meet folks have some great chat.

So we got to chatting about the Pocket Lint which seems everyone got today with Kura (except one Talbuk did drop). My comment was that WoW should have a pet for anyone who saves up 1000 Pocket Lint that they could be turned in for a 'Lintonator' (like the Draenic Seeds with the Herb Garden).

One of my guests in the Garrison came up with a better idea.

Save up enough Pocket Lint - you could turn it in for a DUST BUNNY pet

Woohoo!

I love the dust bunny idea - I was just thinking that this morning, that of course it would have to be a dust bunny!

Except I've been vendoring all my lint. :/ Bunny fluff takes up bag space.

We all have - WoW would have to make it stackable like the seeds. But still it would be so cute. I wonder if I could make a suggestion to WoW about it for an upcoming release?

OMG thats an awesome idea. A Dust Bunny pet you trade lint in for. Even if they may it 5k in lint I'd do it. Lintinator is good but the dust bunny just cracks me up.

Vote 1 Dust Bunny, too good an idea to be wasted.

Heh, cute idea. Not 1000 lint though, that'd take almost a whole year of doing the quest every single day. The person suggesting 5000 lint, above, must be a real masochist. ;)

I'd want it to be easily gotten (since many people have vendored their lint), like maybe 10 lint and a small amount of gold. The actual pet could be a normal bunny in a dusty color (light gray? tan?) with a little dust effect around it like the Filthling or Living Sandling.

I saved up 1000 Draenic seeds forgoing any work orders with my Herbal Merchant just for the dang Crazy Carrot. (My highest level herbalist is level 27). So let's not make the Dust Bunny toooooo easy.

I think 1000 would be too hard because when you think about it we only get 2 pocket lint a day which means for someone like me with one level 100 character it would take OMG way too long to get a Dust Bunny.

But maybe 100 Pocket Lint and perhaps a small reasonable quest to show your dedication to cleaning out your garrison and earn the right to the bunny! I don't want to turn this into a Darkmoon Rabbit but let's not make this a Senegal either.

It could have a dusty aura, too. Suggested abilities:
Instead of it burrowing underground like the ability Burrow, it would hide under a carpet.
Dodge would turn into Dust Cloud. "Hides in a blanket of dust. Increase dodge by 100% for one round"
Adrenaline Rush would be Dust in the Wind.
Stampede would be Dust Tumble. The Dust Bunny would turn into balls of lint that stampede the opponent.
Flurry would be Lint Licker. It would look like a frog's Tongue Lash.
Just some fun ideas. hehe

I was thinking that instead of being a critter it would be an elemental pet because let's face it - it's dust or particles so basically it's an element. So it would be an Elemental that has properties of a critter.

And I have to do this

*** clears her throat and sings at the top of her lungs***

Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

Dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind

Abbotta just made my day!!

As being one of the few in Warcraftpets.com old enough to have been a teen when "that song" came out it was great seeing it referenced here.

Heck I am older than "Blue"; You my boy Blue!!"

Carry on

Anytime. I still have my vinyl copy of 'Point of Know Return' from Kansas that my brother had won off the local Radio Station. I'm a big fan of 70s Prog Rock!

I want to figure out how to submit the Dust Bunny as an idea for a battle pet. I think we have a great pet idea and makes a good use of that Pocket Lint.

Edit to say I just got the 'Old School' reference - awesome movie!
