This pet was available for a limited time to players in Taiwan when they prepay for a certain amount of World of Warcraft game time prior to March 4, 2010.


As of Patch 5.4.1, this pet is now a reward from the Recruit-A-Friend system in regions outside of Asia.

*Update* recently acquired this pet, he is larger and more vocal/higher pitch than his sapphire cub relative 

Anyone else seriously amused by the accuracy of these retroactive comments?

 

"I'd prepay for a lot of game time for a chance at this guy. I think Blizz is missing a serious cash-generating opportunity by not offering the promotion elsewhere!"

"ugh, it's so pretty! i hope one day they let JCs make stuff like this, i would kill for that little guy!" (sapphire cub)

For so long, I've felt like Ralphie in the Christmas Story: looking in awe through the store window at the Red Rider BB Gun. With RAF, I can finally have one of the coveted tigers! Please advise me which you think is better: the Jade or Zipao Tiger? I'm torn! The Zipao Tiger is Breed 6, but has the same abilities as the Feline Familiar. The Jade Tiger is Breed 3, but has Jade Claw (+5% hit chance than Onyx Bite). Both of those abilities are fantastic against most other pets. What do you think?

Uncommon quality when learned....slightly disappointed there tbh. As a RaF reward I had expected it to be rare quality, but oh well.

This was my first reward choice, the new mount will have to wait.  He lvl'd to 19 twice, don't know if he is buggy or not as I have never had that happen before.  What should have taken 6 battles, took 7 with this guy, he is finally 25 now.

Looking at some of the mobs roaming Pandaria I cannot help but think this will be with us in the new expansion

I am happy for those lucky few who have this glorious pet, and appreciative of what pets I've received in exchange. With luck, we'll see it on western shores someday soon...

Or we'll all wallow in misery at the notion that it'll remain tentatively out of reach forever...

... That last one sounds better.

I hope the US gets a model of one of these someday. As Breanni suggested, I'm curious if it makes sounds and what it would sound like. I still believe they should've put tribal carvings on its sides or something, it is stone after all!

When are they going to bring in an Australian pet? A kangaroo maybe?

Bit of a bug on the site, this pet doesn't exclude itself when you check "Non-US Servers" on the excluded section.

It's a beautiful beastie, congratulations to the Taiwan players! There's a lot of stuff we're jealous of on both sides of the fence, I know, but we're all pet lovers in the end and a shame not all of the pets from any of the country specific servers are available to all!

Gratz on a great pet you deserve, and here's wishing we'll get a neat gem pet at some point! :D

Remember everyone -- just because most of us are unable to get this pet doesn't mean we shouldn't be happy for those who are. Players in Taiwan are unable to get many of the pets we take for granted.

A rarely seen family of tigers, many believe (perhaps incorrectly) that some residual magic or other event is responsible for the unique color.
