Patch 2.4.2 | Posted: July 15, 2008

This pet was a free gift for attendess of the 2008 Blizzard Worldwide Invitational. A gift card may be scratched to reveal a code allowing a single character access to this pet. However, the item that teaches the pet's summon spell may be mailed to other characters on the account. The code may be redeemed at Blizzard's promotion retrieval page. The pet may be obtained in-game from Edward Cairne (Undercity) or Ian Drake (Stormwind).

Tyrael responds to the /dance emote by dancing with his owner. As of patch 3.2, he'll also occasionally fall asleep in mid air.

It is a great pet and it even has an iddle animation where he sleeps midair. You can also trigger that sleep animation with the petbed toy.

He is not showing up in the pet list anymore.  I've asked my guildies to look and no one can find him in their lists either.  Was he removed from the game?  What happened to him?

I was lucky enough to actually attend the World Wide Invitational while living in Germany and got him. This pet is amazing in battle, and I had no idea people were spending so much money on him!

That Omnislash ability is a further reference to FFVII? :)

I love Mini Tyrael, so he was one of the first pets I started using in PvE battles for the sake of aethetics mostly. But, he's very solid against critters as they're weak against him, and with his heals he can take a lot of punishment (which also makes him a good choice for when you're trying to capture). He is terrible vs. beasts, however, so I keep a mechanical on the team or my old standby Emerald Whelpling for wild pet battles. He's a dragon destroyer. I haven't tried PvP battles, so unfortunatley can't offer any comments on his performance there.

This pet is one of my most favorite pets. I was fortunate enough to obtain him in August this year off ebay for the bargin price of $600USD. I did 2days overtime at work to pay for him because I wanted him in my team so bad. My workmates said I was crazy to spend so much on just pixels in a game. But they just don't get it. Looking at the price of him now it's the best decision I ever made. Only 1.2% of members here have him adding to his rarity. Love my mini Tyrael :)

I saved money and bought him! =D A lot of women I know buy purses that are 4 times what he's priced (lucky and got him for $660!). I never spoil myself on expensive purses, shoes or anything like that. He's truly unique and cute and well worth it. He sleeps, he dances and he scratches his butt. Not to mention good in battle. Needed to make sure I make him mine while they're still some to get! XD I figure I can always make more money, but they will never make more Tyraels.

Mini Tyrael can be teamed with almost any kinda of pets to form a good team...because of his abilities like surge of light with frequent stuns, 100% stun, and heal or charge...


P.S It is good to use agianst 1vs1 Anubisath Idol. Usually wins every fight agaisnt 1vs1 Anub* most of the time.

IMO they should leave stuff like that out of the pet battle system and achievements. If it can't be legally obtained in-game it should be a pure vanity item.


And yes, he is cute, but still :).

Like a fool I sold mine before I started collecting pets. It went on eBay in 2008 for about £300 and paid for my trip to the WWI in Paris.

I kick myself every day.

Mini Tyrael stands apart as one of those pets that isn't just some goofy time sink that others look down upon. Many a hardened troll have paused at the sight and asked where they could acquire one.

Regrettably, I'm one of those on the outside looking in; my best chance at snatching a piece of awesomeness is throwing $900.00 at eBay. Or maybe we'll see a reemergence with the upcoming Diablo 3 collector's edition? Make it happen, Blizz.

Tyrael is an amazing attention getter.

Park yourself in Dalaran, give him a pet biscuit, and just watch the people flock around him.

More than any other pet ive seen in game, he really knows how to draw a crowd! (Just make sure YOU have a cool RP outfit on too so he doesn't get ALL the attention.)

I love my Tyrael, and the way he scratches his ass while asleep cracks me up every time!

It's also one of the few pets that people still whisper me, asking where I got that "awesome pet". One of my faves, for sure - and the best thing is I was given it by a colleague who went to the Invitational!

Tyrael is from Blizzard's other major fantasy game franchise, Diablo. In Diablo II, he was a major questgiver and the Archangel of Justice.
