Patch 4.0.6 Changes and Core Hound Pup Contest

February 08, 2011
UPDATE: The Moonkin Hatchling can now fly along side its owner's flying mount and/or flight form!

Also, there is a bug where Withers and the Teldrassil Sproutling are sharing the model of the old Restoration Druid Tree of Life form. Blizzard devs are aware of the issue and hope to resolve this issue in the future.

Guild Herald
Patch 4.0.6 Is Here!
The Cataclysm patch that many pet collectors have been waiting for has finally arrived! With this latest patch come some changes to two of the guild-rewarded companions, the Armadillo Pup and the Guild Herald. Both of these pets now only required Revered guild rep, down from Exalted.

Congratulations to all those who will have two new pets to add to their collection today, and good luck to those who are still working on building the guild reputation to acquire these two companions! Thanks to the change, there's one less level of reputation to grind. Go, go, go!

Here are a couple of extra vanity pet-related changes to note as detailed in the patch notes listed on MMO-Champion:

  • Additional animations have been added to the Armadillo Pet guild reward.
  • The Disgusting Oozeling no longer applies a debuff which reduces defense, a deprecated stat.


The Return of Two Pets
Blizzard added in two little surprises with this patch, as this change went undocumented in the official patch notes. The Smolderweb Hatchling and Worg Pup have been found! They are now drops from Lower Blackrock Spire!
