No Boars allowed

Post by Lyssana » May 30th, 2013, 3:42 pm

Why are there no boar/swine vanity pets? Seems an obvious choice for orcs , there's farms full of them outside Org. Since day one in vanilla I've wanted one of those : (

I'm on your side. My main is a troll hunter and her #1 pet has always been a boar, the same guy she tamed waaaaaaayyy back in the beginning, the day she found him in Durotar. I love the boars and wish they had little boar mini pets too. The pink piggy is cute, but he's nowhere near as cool as the boar. I vote for boar mini pets too! :@)

Was that a pun? That was a pun...Sure they aren't glowing purple or shooting fireballs, but they are the only critter I can think of that has no minipet version. I would love to know why that is.

I think I love you for this. <3



I do love my Waddles (Mr. Wiggles) but a boar/swine pet would be really cute.

My first ever Hunter pet was a Boar named Baldrick. I still have him (on both the original toon and the second hunter I made to recreate the first one when I race/name changed my original for raiding purposes).

I'd love to have a mini-Baldrick.

Keith, Mr. Wiggles is a pig, not a boar. Which always seemed a strange choice on blizzard's part,there aren't any other regular pigs in game are there? I don't know why they didn't make that a boar to begin with.

I would really love a little baby plague boar like the pet of the evil villain in illegal danish super snacks. (man that's an old reference lol)
