skunk! In recent interview, Jeff Kaplan, the lead designer for WoW, said the following:
One fun achievement that I may go for is the one that grants a unique pet for collecting all the available pets in the game – a pet skunk called Stinker.
Originally, many of us speculated that Jeff meant we'd have to fulfill the requirements of the "Shop Smart... Shop Pet Smart" achievement, which requires collecting 75 unique vanity pets with one character. Well, in the beta, it appears that the actual requirement is collecting 50 pets on a single character to achieve the "Pandemic of Pets" achievement. This is a much more realistic objective, enabling collectors of all levels the privilege of smelling this lil' Stinker.
The best part: After hitting the 50 pet mark, the [Reeking Pet Carrier] item will appear in your mailbox, sent by none other than me!
