Molten Corgi — Pet of the Month: December 2014

December 17, 2014
Molten Corgi — Pet of the Month

In honor of 10 wonderful and exciting years of WoW, this Pet of the Month features a unique pet — the Molten Corgi.

Collecting the Molten Corgi
Molten Corgi
The Molten Corgi can only be obtained during the WoW 10th anniversary celebratory period.

Any character that logs into the game between November 21, 2014 through January 5, 2015 will receive this little pup in their in-game mail. A small note from the WoW Dev Team is included along with the corgi.

"Can you believe it's been ten years?

We wanted to thank you for joining us in our celebration of the tenth anniversary of World of Warcraft with this adorable fiery fellow, plucked from the Firelord's Litter."


Unfortunately, the Molten Corgi is not cageable and cannot be traded to others. It's unknown whether or not this pet will still be available even after the anniversary festivities have ended, however it seems unlikely.

You definitely don't want to miss out on adding this pet to your collection, so be sure to log into the game before January 5th!

Battling with the Molten Corgi
The Molten Corgi is a fantastic pet to highlight in the month of December, because it has all the bells you might associate with a festive Winter Veil and a couple whistles to boot. Every single one of its abilities has a useful, diverse mechanic.

The Corgi has Bark in the first slot, which is a spammable attack that decreases the power of your opponent's next attack. It also gives this Elemental pet a bit of Beast damage, which is a fairly unique attribute.

Flamethrower is the other choice in the first slot. It's an Elemental spell which puts a DoT on whichever pet is in your opponent's front row. If a heal is what you need, the Corgi can use Cauterize, a very strong single-turn heal.

Puppies of The Flame
Need an avoidance spell or a Force Swap? Sharing slot 3 is Puppies Of The Flame (pictured above), a multi-turn burrow ability similar to Sons Of The Root, and a force swap in Inferno Herding.

Best of all, the Molten Corgi has Superbark. Superbark will never bring your opponent below 1 health, making the Corgi only the second pet in the game with such a useful ability for taming wild pets. Superbark hits quite hard and has a long cooldown, which makes it even more ideal for taming than that trumped-up rutabaga in most cases. Flamethrower & Superbark can be chosen at the same time, so be careful.

The down side to all this madness is that the Corgi doesn't have any straight forward damage dealing abilities. You have to choose between abilities which are all slightly lackluster damage-wise in order to compensate for the other things they can do. This is fine, it just requires a bit of planning, and maybe a bit of babying your new Molten Corgi.

Argi Now Available In The Blizzard Store

December 03, 2014
UPDATE: The option to purchase the pet for another player is not available at this time, and it's unclear when it will be possible to gift Argi to another player. [source]

Argi coming December 3
A new pet, Argi, is now available for adoption from the Blizzard Store. This adorable little spacegoat costs $10 and is part of a limited time charity drive.

From December 3 through December 31, 100% of all Argi adoption proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross, a nonprofit organization, in an effort to help the Ebola relief efforts. [source]

Argi will certainly be a thoughtful gift for a friend or loved one (or even yourself!) this holiday season.

Celebrating 10 Years of WoW With Two New Pets

November 21, 2014
WoW's 10th Anniversary - two new pets
We're celebrating WoW's 10th anniversary this year, and what an amazing decade it's been!

From vanity pets evolving into battle pets, to the ability to store all of our pets in the Pet Journal when they previously occupied inventory slots, there have been many changes over the years.

One thing has remained constant though — a wonderful community of passionate pet collectors and battlers, and Blizzard's continued support of our beloved gameplay. Oh and of course, the unending adoration for pets!

New Limited-Time Pets
There are two new fiery pets to accompany us as we celebrate WoW's anniversary — the Molten Corgi and Hatespark the Tiny. These pets will only be available for a limited time, from now through January 5, 2015.

All players that log into the game during the anniversary event will receive the adorable Molten Corgi. This tiny pup is perfect for your travels into the revamped anniversary edition of Molten Core. And you definitely don't want to miss out on this limited time raid.

Defeating Ragnaros the Firelord in the special level 100 LFR has a chance to reward the pet Hatespark the Tiny. It's unclear if players will continue receiving rewards while repeatedly defeating Ragnaros in the same lockout, but we can only hope that the Firelord is in a festive and generous mood!

UPDATE: The official WoW developer Twitter confirmed that there is no loot lockout for the anniversary edition of Molten Core.



A Heartfelt Thank You
We would like to thank all of the hardworking developers, community managers, and Blizzard employees for bringing us this awe inspiring game, and for supporting our passion of collecting adorable critters. The past 10 years have been full of exciting adventures. We can't wait to see all of the new pets just waiting for us over the horizon.

Last but not least, a big thank you to our users for helping shape a fun, friendly, and welcoming community. Your continued support is always greatly appreciated. We look forward to sharing updates on new pets with you in the future.

Post-BlizzCon 2014 Wrap Up

November 10, 2014
Doobjanka with Hannabev
BlizzCon 2014 has ended, and we hope everyone enjoyed the celebration of all things Blizzard. We certainly did!

The Future of Pet Battles
There wasn't a lot of discussion on Pet Battles and pets in general during the convention this year. However, there was an inquiry about the future of Pet Battles during the WoW Q&A.

Developer Cory Stockton noted that they are happy with Pet Battle gameplay, and that they plan on adding depth by introducing more content such as additional NPC battles, new pets and more consumables. Their goal is to continue supporting Pet Battle gameplay in future expansions.

New Charity Pet Coming Soon!
Argi coming December 3
Blizzard revealed that a new pet will be arriving in the Battle.net Shop next month. Argi, the adorable "spacegoat" that was previously datamined during the WoD Beta, will make her debut December 3 and will cost $10 (US). [source]

It was also announced that between December 3 and December 31, 100% of the proceeds for every Argi adoption will be donated to the American Red Cross Ebola relief efforts.

Not only will this pet be a wonderful gift for a loved one this holiday season, it's heartwarming to know that collectors will be supporting the Red Cross and helping those in need. We look forward to welcoming Argi into our collections this winter.

A big thank you to user Marzena who brought delicious homemade cookies once again to the WarcraftPets Meet-and-Greet (check out the "Crazy Cat Lady" cookies from 2013). This year the tasty treats were murloc-themed (pictured right). Whether as a pet or in cookie form, who could resist acquiring a little murloc!
