squirky battle pet

Postby Cubcho » July 26th, 2016, 1:32 am

was looking at the pets i don't have yet, and found squirky, a murloc pet that says it's obtainable from pet battle in "the great sea". i guess he's being added in legion?! sounds exciting, a new murloc pet you can just find and catch! :D

What???

It is a wild pet?!

Something you wouldn't expect from a named pet…

Do they tease us or is he, in fact, like Terky?!

Ha! :D

The odd thing about Squirky is that although he's listed as wild in the Pet Journal, there's a BoA item (Odd Murloc Egg) that teaches the pet.

Wild pets don't require items to add them to collections, so what does this mean? Squirky might not be wild and may come from another source. We'll have to wait and see I guess.

hmm, i wasn't aware of that item. the text for this pet reads: "during November a secretive clan of murlocs often sends young tadpoles out to explore, adventure and begin their tale"
it could be somehow related to Blizzcon since that's in November, maybe even just a placeholder for the Blizzcon pet since the item you mentioned was BoA.

Yes, so there's a contradiction.

But a murloc for Blizzcon seems pretty logical. Though it seems pretty normal except the new model?

There was a nice suggestion that it relates to the Traveler.

ooh that sounds like a really interesting theory! "Tadpoles starting their adventure" sure sounds like the Traveler!

Sorry, for this kind of necro-post, but since we still don't know much about Squirky, I think it is okay. :ugeek:

During my exploration of the Broken Isles I visited a place called "Seabreak Isle" in Azsuna that is home to the elite 110 Squigglefin murlocs that look like the grown up version of Squirky.

After a little bit of sneaking around in the water on my level 100 Outlaw rogue, I decided to visit the murloc village. Of course my little Dwarf died almost instantly. To my own surprise there is a spirit healer directly located at the murloc island! The island doesn't include much besides a bunch of anrgy murlocs and three of their captives. Interestingly enough there aren't any Tadpoles around, only some eggs that can't be interacted with. I went on for a while to explore the village and the shipwrecks as a ghost, but nothing interesting came up, so I decided to take a look at wowhead.

It seems that there are Squigglefin Tadpoles (critter & humanoids) and some spells referring to Squirky in the spell name in the game files since patch 7.0.3, but yet unknown or unused! Looking at the spells didn't give any hints about Squirky's location, but my educated guess would be that his egg is most likely a quest reward or at least related to a quest chain.

A quick internet search returned a promotional picture where a murloc that looks like Squirky can be seen with Malfurion in Teldrassil. One of the spells related to Squirky also includes a reference to a hidden mob that uses the sounds of Ancient Protectors that can be found in Val'sharah and Teldrassil.

Maybe I'm just a bit impressed by Blizzard and the "hidden" Kosumoth quest chain that doesn't really fit into the picture of post-Cataclysm WoW, but could it be that Squirky is the new Terky just waiting to be discovered?
Oh and by the way Terky's egg also binds to account according to the pet journal.

but both are empty

Actually, I suspect this isn't Malfurion. Or rather, if it *is* Malfurion, he's going by a different name in the book: the character is named Thalyss Greyoak. He is specifically described as having antlers.

just noticed the pre-patch datamined stuff on wowhead, and I saw a micro holiday called march of the tadpoles, and the description was "March of the Tadpoles (April 5): "Today, the baby Winterfin murlocs of Borean Tundra complete their trip across the Westrift." and it made me think this could have something to do with squirky since the description for the battle pet was very similar too

One of the things Watcher said about micro-holidays in the Q&A was that the devs didn't want people to regret missing them. That makes it a bit less likely that they would make a unique pet available just for that day.
