I assumed the PvP achev. awarding a pet was for pet battle PvP?!? Is that right? Is there another pet for just plain PvP?
I'm sure you are correct, however I was referring to the legendary quest requirements mentioned above. To finish up a segment of the quest, you have to participate in and win each of the new battlegrounds. Someone mentioned they dropped the quest because they refused to do pvp, but they are really simple - just queue in and win, don't even really have to participate with the level of gear most people have now.
I also think being upset about one pet that is tradeable is a bit silly. Think of it from the other side of the coin, the very one you are arguing - Raiders (just using as an example), have had a lot of the exclusivity of being such taken away - all of the content is easily acquired through means of lfr, there are routine nerfs on normal and heroic content as well, so less competitive players can see even those modes. Gear is now easily obtainable by any level of casual to hardcore player, you can no longer stand apart and sparkle in awe of those who will likely never see that own gear on themselves. Even mounts that were guaranteed for heroic raiders now drop out of bags or can be bought off the black market auction house.
Now there is this one pet that is a reward for those players yet again, but even then, not even exclusive since it is tradeable! And people still are upset
I just think it's a bit selfish. If it were bop and non cageable, I could understand the disappointment, but there is a high chance you all will still be able to get this pet. I know most of you don't understand the heroic raiding perspective, as you're not interested in it, or not in a capable guild, but just imagine how you feel now and apply that feeling to what hardcore raiders have felt for the last 5 or so years.
Just my 2 cents.
