I already have it from the very first year, when you had to play 200 games.
I am no PvP Player at all. You don't really have to. All you have to do is play the fights. Not quit them. Not just stand there. Doesn't matter if you loose or win. Just try. ^_^
[I remember having much fun with this back then when I played with two guys from GB ( I hardly understood their English on Teamspeak, but it was so much fun). ]@Doire
it doesn't matter what race you play it. All your current and future chars will have the pet no matter the race. @all
It might be important to put wheter you're on a American or on a European Client. (Lot's of international folks here on the site)@Shamalock
Don't worry about your gear. You will create a new char** for the tournament. Then you have a ton of Vendors with all kind of stuff to gear you up. including gems, enchants, dungeon wear. the only thing that wasn't there were things from professions (like roket boots or the like)
** Alliance/Horde doesn't matter. You chose what you like. It will be instantly boosted to max Level with Starting Gear for all it's Speccs in the backpack. And lot's of Money to spend on the vendors.
If you're really, really out of luck finding someone for the European Server, send me a message, I might find you one.
