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.
MC: You can run the instance as many times as you want to try to get Hatespark the Tiny & the Flames of Ragnaros enchant; no loot lockout.— WarcraftDevs (@WarcraftDevs) November 22, 2014
