Fights to the death with Grunty and Zeradar.

Original WoW Collector's Edition required.

April 1, 2007

Zergling, Panda Cub and Mini Diablo are now all sent to each character created in a World of Warcraft Collector's Edition account. (Formerly, each character had to choose 1 of the 3 pets, but this was changed in patch 4.0.1). The C Eedition is no longer sold in stores, adding to this pet's rarity. The item that teaches this pet's summon spell may be mailed to other characters on the account.

When this pet is in close proximity to Grunty, the two will fight to the death.

What if there were TWO zerglings for the pet? It would be even BETTER than it is now!

To get those pets you need to buy the vanilla (original) wow collector's edition from 2004. There are some on ebay, but they're very expensive.

If I purchase MoP Digital Deluxe Edition, will I receive these pets? Or do I need to buy the physical collestor's edition? Or is it only collector's editions of previous expansions?

Just to confirm that these pets are still mailed to your first character you log in as when you upgrade an "existing" standard edition to collector's edition.


You receive all three pets in the mail and get an achievement for each of the pets once you learn it.

Ridiculously fast pet. Terrible attack power. His W abilities are garbage. Novelty to have but much like the Baneling coming out, worthless in terms of an actual team comp.

One idea is to get a pet that can use Lightning Storm so that the multiple attacks from the Zerling hit for more. But if they change the weather then nevermind. Too situational.

Really cool pet to have but terrible in combat.

OK, they have a Zerg pet, and a Marine pet, now all they need to add is a Protoss pet, and the 3 way battle of fate will commence.

When fighting with Grunty, the Zergling does not always lose. From experments my bf and I have done, distance seems to be key. If far apart when summoned, Grunty has more time to shoot the zergling, whereas if close together, the zergling jumps Grunty before he can fire. (so for you zergling owners get right up next to Grunty before you summon, if you want to win! :) )

Like Doobjanka said, this lil' guy is a lot rare than Grunty. People will be happy to see you with the Zergling if you own it so they can see the fight!

If you're lucky enough to have one of these pets, whip it out and run around Dalaran picking fights with any Grunty that someone has out. You won't be disappointed, and you might even anger a few people, like I did when I had three toons with Zerglings out taking on all comers!

A small, fierce member of the Zerg swarm, the zergling is not to be trifled with. Very dangerous in high numbers.
