I don't care what anyone thinks, these little guys are cute!

A good macro for summoning him:

/script local t="CRITTER";for i=1,GetNumCompanions(t) do local _,n,_,_,s=GetCompanionInfo(t,i);if n=="Onyxian Whelpling" then if s then DismissCompanion(t,i) else CallCompanion(t,i);SendChatMessage("Many whelps! Handle it!","YELL") end end end

It'll yell "Many whelps! Handle it!" on summon, but not on dismissal. Enjoy!

I'm happier than a kobold with a candle that this pet is on its way out. Onyxia has always been a favorite encounter of mine and re-releasing the dungeon for the new expansion was a wonderful bit of fan appreciation on Blizzard's part. This goes the extra mile, however, by giving every player a piece of that nostalgia that they can carry around with them.

Did I mention it deep breathes?! EPIC!

They really need to make Onyxia's actual whelplings look like this! And making this fly along with mounts should be a top priority!

Hmm, I wonder if I'll need to keep her separated from my Dark Whelpling, for fear of being overrun by a tiny dark brood of dragons?

It's a whelping. It's still growing..ugly animals usually (not always) grow up to be magnificent. Hm, do we really want have a million or so whelpings growing up to be the next Onyxia?

This pet is really neat. I'm glad it's Bind on Account like last years Baby Blizzard Bear, so I can send it to any future alts that I make. :)

When taken on safari this pet can easily deal with wild pets 5 levels higer than them. Really scrappy little thing.

The best part about this pet was when you went into the raid, deadly boss mods would mix up the whelps deep breath and onyxia's and would announce it everytime they both did one. so like 5 people including myself would always have it out just to mess with the raid lol

This pet is excellent for battling with just about any wild pet you wish to tame.  It can heal itself more than many other pets, and does a fair bit of damage with some spicy fire breath.  I keep this as one of my main three.

I just love my little Ony! It's my favorite pet right now and I take him everywhere with me, I even have an addon set up to make sure he's out (unless I'm in PVP that is) so that he can enjoy all the beautiful scenery the world has to offer. I wish he could actually fly when I do though, then I wouldn't have to watch the ground from above to make sure he stays out of mischief. lol

You can trigger her breathing the ring of smoke by typing /breath and waiting a bit. It will come up "You tell Onyxian whelpling to take a deep breath." Then after a bit of time passes it will go, "Onyxian Whelpling takes in a deep breath." and boom! The cute ring of smoke comes out!

Between the Proto Drake, Lil' KT and Ony Whelp, I don't know what to make as my favorite. I will say this. Setting up to take down Ony in 25 with everyone having their Whelps out was just too awesome. I will have to get a screen-shot. During loot, I bet 15 of the things blew their smoke rings at the same time. Was priceless.

It is a piy that in MoP they are no longer a completely unique model.

The color on this matches well with the Magnificent Flying Carpet, and Tattered Dreadmist Robe. Makes a nice ensemble, too bad they didn't upgrade it to be one of the flying pets.

I dont know about its cute or ugly.
Still its one of the best designed pets ingame, but only on second (lil' kt is the best designed pet ever!).
I just hate it because all players atm got it. it sucks!
Maybe 2-3 years out in the future it might be alot cooler.

Spawn of Onyxia, this young dragon has decided that it doesn't want to follow in its grandfathers' cataclysmic footsteps.
