Players must complete the initial quest chain offered upon discovering the Mount Hyjal zone to unlock the quests at the Shrine of Aviana. If far enough along the chain, players will be sent to the shrine with the quest Wings Over Mount Hyjal. Alternatively, players may visit the shrine at a later time to begin the pet quest chain.
The Gold Mini Jouster is one of two companion pet rewards for completing the quest chain started at the Shrine of Aviana in Mount Hyjal. The other pet that is offered is the Blue Mini Jouster.
While players may only choose one or the other at the end of the quest, as of Patch 4.2 it is possible to obtain the second jouster companion.
After completing Egg Wave, a jousting daily will become available. Upon mastering the achievement The 'Unbeatable?' Pterodactyl: BEATEN, players will be mailed a chirping box which contains the jouster pet that was not chosen at the end of the initial quest chain.
When summoning this pet, players will do a /cheer emote and a spark of yellow lightning will flash as the pet appears.
While I love all of my companions, I have a hard time summoning these mini jousters. They remind me too much of long hours spent jousting at the Argent Tournament. Frankly, anything that reminds me of those tedious, grueling times is too much to to bear. I'd rather face Deathwing solo than do any more jousting.
