What "Homage" pet would you like to see in the game?

Postby Livingdeath » April 24th, 2013, 10:06 pm

Let's play a game!

Last week it was announced that Blizzard was putting in an homage pet for JJ Abram's "Bad Robot" productions. I really liked that idea!

What other "homage" pet would you like to see in game? Regardless of licensing and copyright infringement, what would you love to see? And if you want, you can make up skills for it. Be as nerdy as you'd like!

For example, I would love to see a Doctor Who TARDIS pet. I designed skills that were similar to other pets abilities so the idea was kind of comparable.

Image

SKILLS

- Untempered Schism - Massive AOE that opens up a tear in the Time Vortex beneath the enemy team dealing damage to all pets.
- Time Spin - Lunges forward, spinning around at the enemy team and dealing damage to all pets
- Dematerialize - Fades out one round and fades back in the next round doing damage
- Chameleon Arch - Zaps the target pet and turning it into a generic human pet for a few rounds
- Bigger on the Inside - The door opens and a group of 11 Murlocs in different Doctor outfits stampede out and and deal damage.
- Regeneration - Glowing energy envelopes the team performing a self heal

Now, it's your turn, what would you like to see?

I'd like to see some guys from The Binding of Isaac. Mainly, I'm thinking Duke of Flies, Monstro and Larry Jr.

I think it would be awesome if 6.0 took us back the stars, something to do with the Draenni.

Then I could justify wanting a Skutter and a Talkie Toaster pet.

6.0 might also have us take the fight to the Legion, which would definitely lead to some interstellar action. In that case, in a nod to 2001, can we get a little space baby fetus pet?

I only have 2 words to say STAR WARS :)

But instead of R2D2 or C3PO I'd like to see a few of the other droids. My top 2 picks would be the red squarish top droid from A New Hope (it blew it's top and was only onscreen for 2 minutes) and a Destroyer Droid from the prequels.

:twisted:

See, I would have gone Star Wars as well, but a different pet:

If I don't see a pet Falcor in my time, I'll shed tears :cry:

If it's not white (as in off-white), flies, and has a deep laugh, I'll mourn Blizzard's lost childhood.

I'll even take it as a mount. Actually, I would give a thousand childhood dreams to have that as a mount.

The model's already in the game. Just need to give it a new skin! :D

I was just thinking about a mini TARDIS pet today, this makes me laugh!

I think it might be a bit too weird to make a pet out of though.

A mini-Dalak battle pet though...that spells mechanical all over :D
