Is it just for the top 1000 teams? Or is it similar to Murkimus the Gladiator, and you only need to participate in a certain number of matches to be eligible?

If it's a new pet for the Arena Pass, I would hope that it's the latter scenario (same as Murkimus the Gladiator). But then that would mean Murkimus the Gladiator would no longer be available once Murkimus Tyrannicus is released. Meep.

Hopefully there will be more info soon.

Mmm, I wouldn't say the pet needs your team to be in top 1000 necessarily:

Another FoS is added too:
Tournament Participation 2013 (New) Participated in the 2013 Tournament Arena Realm Account Wide.
While Gendou posted the other mail string, he didn't post this one:
Automated In-game Mail #385 - Congratulations, Vanquisher!: On behalf of the Steamwheedle Fighting Circuit, we congratulate you upon your successes in the latest Arena Tournament.$B$BIn recognition of your skill and savagery, we hereby bestow upon you the title of Vanquisher. May you wear it proudly.
Sooooo what I'm seeing (and hoping) this there will be two (separate) rewards from the tournament, a title and a pet.

The title is Vanquisher, and both e-mails are directed to 'Vanquisher.'
To me, that suggests that Murkimus will continue to be available for participation, while 'Murkimus Tyrannicus' will be for the top 1000 teams.

Yes, it's hard to say at this point. Both letters use 'Vanquisher', but the pet letter says 'your participation' and the title letter says 'your successes'.

If it's a new pet then I'd be inrerested in signing up to the arena to play enough games to get it. Maybe some others are interested in making teams for it?

mmo-champ database indicates it will be an entirely new pet, with new moves and name. i hope it will have a new and more "injured" model than murkimus the gladiator

It's a new color, with white eyes. Take from the latest PTR. Hopefully it is just a replacement for Murkimus and not just for top 1k or else I have my work cut out for me!

Dear Blizz,

If the new pet is for being in the top 1000 forget it. If it's for competing, count me in!! Do you want my 50$ or not??

Yours faithfully,
Gwenolyn

I hear that. Every year, the people in my Arena team get bored before I get all of my games in. :(
