Binds when picked up
Use: Teaches you how to summon this companion.
Idles about. Will begin to fly whenever its owner mounts up.
A plush version of this pet is available for purchase from the Blizzard Store. Players who purchase the plush will receive a code for the in-game pet. This code may be redeemed on a single WoW account. Thus, players who have more than one WoW account bound to their Battle.net accounts must choose which account will receive this pet.
Note: The pet codes are region-specific, so be sure to order for your region. (Plushes ordered from the US store cannot be redeemed on EU servers.)
The EU Blizzard store no longer sells this plush toy. It's unknown if it will be available again in the future.
During any epic battle, I like to summon a random companion for luck. But the Wind Rider Cub brought the opposite. The "incident" happened when I participated in a faction-wide raid. As we rode into Orgrimmar, I shouted, "For the Alliance!" and out popped my Wind Rider Cub. Voice chat went dead. Everyone froze. Dozens of dwarves, humans, and night elves stared at me with mouths agape. Next thing I know, I'm kicked from the raid. I guess they were just jealous that they didn't have this cutey.
