Log Your Vote!

November 04, 2008
Log Your Vote
It's Election Day 2008 and there's no better time for you to log your vote! According to our numbers, only 26% of registered site members have voted for one or more of their favorite pets. Voting gives you a chance to share your opinion about which pets you like and which pets you don't. And as an added incentive, members who take the time to rate every pet enjoy the Top Rater Site MVP title. So if you're one of those 74% who have yet to weigh in on your faves, be sure to vote today!

Also, we don't want to get too political here (WoW and politics don't mix), but if you're living in America and are 18 years or older, we encourage you to take the time to vote in today's election. Every vote can make a difference, so hit the polls and feel good about supporting your candidate of choice.

Win a Gurky

November 09, 2008
Gurky
To celebrate the official launch of Wrath of the Lich King in Europe, Blizzard is holding a picture-taking contest. Participants in Paris, Rotterdam, Madrid, London, Berlin and Stockholm are encouraged to photograph the excitement of the night of November 12th.

The Baby Murloc Adoption Committee has decided to reward the players who capture the best pictures during this fabulous evening. The winners of this contest will get the opportunity to look after the famous Gurky. Do not miss the chance to make friends with this rare game mascot…

So far, there is no word of any similar contest for U.S. players to win a Murky. But we will cross our fingers and let you know if we hear of one. Good luck to our EU members!

Wrath is Here!

November 13, 2008
Northrend or bust!
NEW Pets! After much anticipation, Wrath of the Lich King is finally here and we couldn’t be more excited! With this release, WarcraftPets is proud to welcome nine new additions to the vanity pet database:



All of these pets were previously reported in the WotLK Beta News as they were discovered, so there are no new surprises… yet. Sadly, two of the pets from the beta, Chilly and the Baby Shark, did not make it into the final release. Hopefully, they will debut in a future patch.

For those of you fortunate enough to snag a WotLK Collector's Edition, congratulations on your new Frosty! And to everyone, good luck on the many challenges and adventures that await you in Northrend. May your spirits be high and your latency low! Oh, and don't forget to bundle up.

Thirteen1 Interviews Breanni

November 15, 2008
Thirteen1 Gaming E-zine
Paddy, games reviewer for the free MMO e-zine, Thirteen1, recently contacted me for an interview to get my take on the success of the Wrath of the Lich King beta and the final product. Excerpts of the original interview appear throughout his review of Wrath in issue #8 (pages 20-29). Thirteen1's reviewing system is, not surprisingly, based on a scale of 1 to 13. WotLK garnered a very respectable 11.5 / 13. Check out the full review—it was definitely an interesting read. If you'd like to read their full interview with me, click below:

What's in that Disgusting Jar?

November 21, 2008
No, this isn't a reference to my messy refrigerator. Salsa is supposed to be blue and fuzzy, right?

Many of us have been speculating what might pop out of the [Disgusting Jar] sold by the Frenzyheart Tribe (the faction of Wolvar opposing The Oracles, whose [Mysterious Egg] has a chance to give one of four vanity pets). Unfortunately, there is no evidence to suggest that the jar has any chance to give a pet. So far, the only confirmed reward is Frenzyheart Brew, which reportedly turns you into a Wolvar for a short period of time. Rest assured that if some slimy creature does crawl out of one of these jars, we will let you know.

New Pet: Baby Blizzard Bear

November 22, 2008
Baby Blizzard Bear
NEW Pet! To celebrate the fourth year of Warcraft, simply log on starting November 23. Doing so will earn you the feat of strength, WoW's 4th Anniversary. As a reward for this feat, you will receive a Baby Blizzard Bear in the mail. This is like a dream come true for many collectors (myself included) who love little Poley so much but, until now, had no hope of getting such a fwuffy, wittle, huggable ball of white fuzz. Be sure to act soon, as we do not know how long the event will last, possibly just one day. Enjoy this wonderful surprise!
