Pet worth buying from Blizzard Store

Postby Droodics » November 4th, 2013, 8:19 am

I was planning to buy a Pandaren Monk from Blizzard Store. I mainly wanted to buy him because I love Humanoids, more specific, the passive heal.
Now, I read a lot about pets from Blizzard Store and I don't know which one to get.
I saw that some pets can be bought from E-Bay asswel, such as the Pandaren Monk for 5$, but idk how safe it is.
Some pets can be bought from Auction House, as I've seen. I am on EU Sylvanas, and I got Guardian Cub for 5k gold, not that much for that pet, but affordable for me, and I say, a good deal as I've seen it for 10 euros on Blizzard Store.
I am not that wealthy in game to afford Lil XT or smth else that costs 20k or more.
Which pets you reccomend from Blizzard Store and why?

Your main reason should be: this pet is so freaking cool, I want it!

We could give you reasons why this battlepet is stronger, or this one swings his weapon or does a little dance, but in the end, it needs to appeal to you :)

That being said:

- Pandaren monk is offered along with some NVidia video cards, and thus can be obtained through ebay or other ways.
If you're going after him, you can save yourself a fiver and get him this way, win-win.

- Guardian Cub is the only pet from the store that's tradable ingame. People use it to turn cash into gold, thus it's affordable quite cheap on most servers.

The blossoming ancient is quite a cool, tough, tanky / healy pet that can take on many foes. His fights take long, but he usually wins against all 3 opponents if they don't pull fancy tricks.

Lil' Ragnaros has some cool unique skills aswell

Take your pick, any pick is right =)

I personally can't wait to buy Lil' Ragnaros - not only does he look incredibly cool but he's one of the more powerful battle pets in the game.

Lil' Rag is one of the cooler ones.

But the Cinder Kitten is so cute, it should be illegal.

Plus Cinder Kitten counts towards the Crazy for Cats achievement! :)

Ok, I made a plan to buy one pet a month from blizzard store.
I will buy a Pandaren Monk first, I just love him.
Then I shall buy them in order: Lil Ragnaros>Blossoming Ancient>Moonkin Hatchling >Cinder Kitten>others.
I dont really like Cinder Kitten, but for the Crazy Lady achievement is very good. I dont have many kittens, until I get it maybe I will get more.
Thanks for input, more is allways welcome.

The Guardian Cub is cageable so you can find that particular Store pet on the AH.

I don't have Cinder Kitten and I have the crazy cat lady achievement. There are 24-25 possible cats in-game, most of which are tradeable.

[edit]: Buying Pet Store pet codes for code is against the Terms of Service as I have just found out.

Also so you know the Moonkin Hatchling gets you 2 pets for one. A horde and ally pet. All you have to do is login to the game one a toon from each faction and check a mailbox.

That is good to know. Is there some limitation on the ally or horde pet, such as: You can only play/summon your Alliance moonkin on ally chars?

Just to point out that it is technically possible to purchase Pet Store pets with gold instead.
You should only do this if you trust the seller or are willing to lose gold.
The Guardian Cub is cageable so you can find that particular Store pet on the AH too.

I got the Guardian Cub for about 2.5k on my server. It's addorable.
I've seen that for achievement you need to have 20 cats from 25. 4 of those 25 are out of reach for me.
I've checked my achievements and for Crazy Cat Lady achievement all I need now are free-to-get pets in game.
I will get later on Cinder Kitten just for his/her cuteness.

Yeah, only ally can summon the ally one and only horde can summon the horde one.

Ok, so you can only summon one into the world, but can you battle them?
And another thing: What about Alterac Brew-Pup ? It is worth buying it as soon as it appears on store?
Or should I wait for a promotion. I've seen Blizzard giving certain pets for reduced price sometimes.

You can only use the Moonkin Hatchlings in a battle on the appropriate faction. So to level your horde hatchling, you'd need to play on your horde toon. Alliance hatchling has to be leveled by an alliance toon.

This is against the ToS (except for the guardian cub which is fine), and should not be encouraged. The other pet store pets are obtained from out of game codes, which cannot be purchased with gold.

Its just not safe, not worth it, and Blizzard will not help if something goes wrong.

You can however set up trades via WCP trade forum. There's a number of folks who will gift store pets, especially for newer or harder to get pets, i.e. raid pets, TCG pets. It's not a Blizzard supported transaction so you should always do your research before trading to make sure that both you and your trade partner get what's agreed upon out of the deal!

Sure, but it's not possible to get Crazy for Cats without at least one store, promotion, or TCG cat - or Xu'fu, Cub of Xuen, which requires a very strong team to beat the Celestial Tournament.
