WarcraftPets Needs Your Help

December 01, 2010
WarcraftPets Needs Your Help
No, It's Not Your Interwebz — It's Us
My apologies to everyone for the periodic slowdowns that have been plaguing WarcraftPets for the past week. Since The Shattering went live, we've been hammered by nearly 4 times the traffic and our site can't handle the increased load.

We're currently working with outside experts to implement upgrades in a rushed effort to help restore normal functionality. Weena and I are also making some internal changes to decrease load time. I have no ETA on when the site will be back to 100%, but our goal is before Cataclysm hits.

We have 18 more new pets ready to launch in less than a week. As high as our traffic is now, it's about to soar even higher. You should be able to use this site with ease — that's my top priority.

We Need Your Support
This is the first time we've ever needed to hire outside experts and it's a costly endeavor. Donations have always been useful to cover our expenses, but we need them now more than ever.

We'll gladly accept any amount, but if you donate $30.00 or more, your account will be upgraded to Site MVP Site MVP status. It's our way of thanking you for your contribution. MVP comments and profiles are shown in green and really stand out. Mention your username and we'll be happy to make you a full-fledged MVP.

Make a donation with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!

Goal:  $1,000
Raised:  $2,620.44
GOAL MET!!!

Thanks a million for your support. You're part of an elite few — the pet collectors, obsessive and proud. WarcraftPets wouldn't exist without you. With your help, I know we'll get through these growing pains.

Happy Collecting,

Breanni

New Pet: Fox Kit

December 12, 2010
Fox Kit
NEW Pet!
Blizzard has done it again! A hidden gem came with the release of the expansion — the Fox Kit!

This companion is a Bind on Pick Up drop from the Baradin Foxes on Tol Barad Peninsula (Note: this area is a different area than the Wintergrasp-like PVP zone, however some player-vs-player encounters may still occur.) It has the same model and color as its larger counterpart. If the mood strikes, it will even do a dance! Go Fox Kit, go!
