Maybe he's so upset because he knows one day rather than cuddling him and giving him little treats we're gunna throw a saddle on him and ride him like a cowboy, yeehaw!

We know the pets are great, but how are the toys?
From a tailor's pov, awesome!
They're very detailed with not a single bit of plastic stuck on for convenience. Different fabrics are used for different details and the eyes and paw pads are embroidered appliqués. Even the windrider's tiny fangs are fully shaped cones rather than felt triangles glued on as you'd expect from a toy in this price range. Don't think of them as 25$ just for the ingame item, the physical item is well worth it.

Both the Wind Rider and the Gryphon will walk behind you, if you get too far ahead they will switch to flight. When you stop for a few seconds they return to the ground. They also seem to fly when you mount and walk when you dismount.

Reminds me of 'Sam the Eagle' from the Muppet show. (And wow, these arrived quick from the Blizzard Store.)

Chimeras: I think that you're confused with the Wildhammer Gryphon Hatchling which is sharing the same model.

With the opening of the Blizzard gear store, this guy is for sale again. I had missed out on it and quickly snatched one up and recieved it a few days after. If you're missing it, I'd suggest picking it up ASAP. as the wind rider cub sold out extremely quickly. This one may follow suit soon.

This pet and its plushy were recently removed from the Pet Store along with the horde pet and plushy ever since Blizzard changed to the new format.

Blizzard appear to have removed the Wind Rider Cub and Gryphon Hatchling completely (again!) Rather than saying "out of stock", they have been removed from the store, and the one I had in my wishlist now says "Product no longer available."


Wish I'd ordered it earlier, seems it went from not being (readily) available in Europe to unavailable worldwide. One would hope they will add the companions to the digital store, but not holding out hope. Maybe they will return...

He's back on the Blizzard Store. I just bought him today. I did buy a BlizzCon ticket, so maybe with that purchase one can see more items in the shop, so if you can't see him for sale, that might be why.

On January 11th, 2015, I was able to order this little guy when it had previously been missing from the store! It's in the Blizzard Gear store, under Collectables. I found it on page two. Good luck!

After searching all thru the available merchandise this "plushie" or the accompanying code is no longer available at the Blizzard store. You are at the mercy of unscrupulous sellers and dealers. Good luck.

Just as the Wind Rider Cub, it's available again from the US-Blizzard Store. The code also works on EU-Account.

Get it as soon as possible though, as they may be sold out again soon.

A gift from the Wildhammer dwarves to the heroes of the Alliance, these hatchlings are descendants of the same gryphons ridden by Falstad and his entourage into Grim Batol.
