Lil' XT Temporarily Removed

August 05, 2010
UPDATE #3: Lil' XT is (finally) back in store at the Blizzard Pet Store. Whatever the issue was has been resolved, so why wait? Grab this adorable little tantrum-thrower today!

Lil' XT

Yep. Apparently Lil' XT has gone missing from the Blizzard Pet Store. A few other collectors noticed and the questions began on the forums. It sounds like it's only temporary, but details are sketchy. So far, here's what we've got from a forum blue:

Lil' XT has been temporarily removed from the store, everyone. We plan on bringing Lil' XT back as soon as possible, though. While I don't have an ETA to provide, I encourage you to check back over the course of the next couple weeks. :)

Based on this statement, there may have been a system glitch. Or maybe more codes need to be generated. Either way, we'll keep you posted.

Crawling Hand Pet

August 06, 2010
We just got word of another potential pet coming in Cataclysm. This one was clearly inspired by Thing from The Adams Family. It's idle animation will have you playing "Rock, Paper, Scissors" until the your raid leader kicks you to the curb.

We have no idea how this pet might be obtained, but we'll let you know when we get more details.

I've got to "hand" it to Blizzard... this is one pet we'll all definitely want to get our "hands" on.

More New Cataclysm Pets
The folks at MMO Champion have uncovered more new pets that will be making their debut in Cataclysm. A few of these images have been seen before, but now we have names to go with the faces.

We'll keep you informed as more details come in surrounding these new pets. I know I can't wait to get my hands on that mini Fel Reaver!

New Dark Phoenix and Snail Pet

New Dark Phoenix and Snail Pet
It looks as though the new guild vendors in Cataclysm will be selling a wide variety of items, including pets and mounts!

The guild vendors on both the Alliance side and the Horde side carry a Baby Dark Phoenix and a Snail Pet (screenshot). Both appear to be very inexpensive at this stage of the beta. I've always wanted a snail for a pet and a "dark" phoenix sounds sweet! Cataclysm is sounding better everyday.

August 16, 2010
It looks like companions will be moving from the pets tab to a new companions tab in the spellbook. The picture below offers a preview of the new UI in Cataclysm.

Note that mounts will be moving to the spellbook as well.

Lil' Deathwing Confirmed as Cataclysm CE Pet

August 17, 2010
The latest beta patch added the Lil' Deathwing model to the build. He doesn't look nearly as dangerous in this form, does he?

UPDATE: We now have confirmation that Lil' Deathwing is indeed the Cataclysm collector's edition pet. The last two CE expansions offered the Netherwhelp and Frost Whelp (Frosty) respectively. So this makes perfect sense.

BlizzCon 2010 Pet Revealed: Deathy

August 26, 2010
Deathy, the Murloc
The BlizzCon 2010 giveaway pet has been revealed! It's none other than Deathy, a mighty new murloc pet decked out in Deathwing's classic skin! From Blizzard:

"Death will rise from the tide!" Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain once warned -- and at BlizzCon 2010, the band's dire musical prophecy will finally come to pass. Everyone who attends this year's BlizzCon or purchases the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket will receive an exclusive set of murlocalyptic in-game items for World of Warcraft and StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty.

World of Warcraft players will be joined by Deathy, a murloc companion decked out as Deathwing and doing his best to strike fear into the hearts of Azeroth's crustacean population. You'll also be able to display your tidal pride in StarCraft II with a Murloc Marine character portrait and a pair of deep-sea decals to emblazon on your units, each with a different terran, protoss, and zerg design.

One word: AWESOME!

If you're unable to attend the show this year in person (like me, sadly), order your virtual ticket today and enjoy the event (and this sweet new pet) from the comfort of your own home.
