Patch 4.2.0 | Posted: June 28, 2011

The NPC named Jaga that offers this quest can be found near the lake in the Valley of Wisdom in Orgrimmar. Because this is a faction specific quest, only Horde may pick it up and receive a Horde Balloon.

The alliance version of this companion is the Alliance Balloon.

When mounted, the balloon pet will disappear.



Flying creatures gain 50% extra speed while above 50% health.


Damage Taken 

50% from Magic abilities

33% from Beast abilities

Question: the entry says the base quality is Rare, but mine is Uncommon and cannot be stoned blue. Is this a mistake in the Warcraftpets database? Does this pet count against me in my "Rare Pet Score"?

Just leveling him with the stones, sadly the armory doesn't show it. :D

One thing to note, which seems kind like a no duh but I didn't even consider, is if you did the alliance balloon on a character and then do a faction change you don't get the horde balloon and you cannot do the horde quest on that character.

If you link this pet in chat, it show it as having battle pet stats... not sure if it's a bug or an odd sign of things to come?

I don't have the MoP expansion yet but i can still use some of the features that come with it like the account bound pets.


I have Alliance toons on one server and Horde toons on another and I found out by happy accident that any pet my Horde toon gets on their server my Alliance toon can get credit for on the other server and vice-versa.  


No "Death-Flopping" into opposing capitol cities to get the pets I want... YaY!!!!!

Now that patch 5.0.4. has dropped, and pets/mounts/achievements are account wide, your Alliance toons can learn this pet, and it counts towards the pet collecting achievements. However, your Alliance toon will not be able to summon this pet.

(Note: this post is accurate as of 8/29/12, the day after the new patch was released.)

As a member of the Horde I tried to get the Alliance balloon by infiltrating Stormwind. Unfortunately the quest giver is not visible at all, nor is her quest on the minimap.

I mention this here under the Horde Balloon entry because I assume this is the same for Alliance attempting to infiltrate Orgrimmar. Don't want anyone to corpse flop their way to the vendor only to find out they aren't visible!

I want to get 99 Horde members to gather together and have this pet out all at once, and then shoot an 80's music video.

This is seriously the most adorably addicting little pet. There's just something about slaughtering a whole species or zone in some relentless grind while dragging around a cheerful little balloon. I love that it's such a low-level quest... my bank alt now only spawns this companion. =)

A magical wonder, these balloons will never deflate and are traditionally created in batches of ninety-nine.
