- Non-Combat Pets: 8 new pets have been added (not including Argent Tournament rewards). Raptor Hatchlings can be found on rare and elite raptors throughout the game world. In addition, an Obsidian Raptor Hatchling can be purchased from Breanni in Dalaran.
- Northrend Children's Week has arrived in Dalaran! Players can find out more by visiting the Eventide District.
Looks like we might finally get pet Gorlocs and Wolvar this year after all. Better late than never. And I'm so happy they added more farmable pets. It's all part of the crazy pet-collecting fun! Plus raptors sound really cool. *squee*
In addition, more Argent Tournament content is currently Under Development, including new quest hubs, dailies, and rewards. The new items of particular interest to pet collectors are:
- New Pet: A brand-new pet, the Shimmering Wyrmling, will be available to characters of both factions who distinguish themselves.
- An Upgraded Squire: As any good squire should, this upgraded squire now has a mount and can be called forth every eight hours for three minutes of duty. The upgrade cost is 150 Champion Seals and your squire will also offer one of three services: bank, mail, or vendor access.
I'm flabbergasted about the upgraded Squire ~ a vanity pet that actually does something useful! What is this World... of Warcraft... coming to? Sorry, I couldn't resist.
We don't know yet what the new Shimmering Wyrmling will look like. Perhaps a color variant of the Mana Wyrmling. Or maybe something really cool like a mini Arcane Serpent. As always, we will keep you posted on any new information.
