Never say Blizzard customer service does not care. They gave my Grunty on my new account after I lost control of my old account. I am a former USMC and am disabled so they took pity on me and I am so happy to have him back.

This pet is OP. I can't help but wonder if since they have done terran and zerg units if they are going to do protoss units when HotS Collectors comes out.

This little guy is by far my favorite pet. Murloc + Starcraft Marine Armor and Rifle = Massive Awesome. Love his idle animations, especially when we are just standing there together and he is checking our 12 and 6 with his rifle aimed and loaded.

All marines are crazy but Grunty is the hairiest scariest, craziest jarhead that ever scratched, kicked, and bit his way out of a zergling ambush.

I have half a mind to actually spend the $60 or so bucks to buy Grunty. Sure that sounds ridiculous and I agree, it is, but I still want one. I'm a huge Starcraft geek and I know that I have a much smaller chance of getting the Zergling pet, so I figure burning the cash on Grunty would be a worthwhile investment in the long run.

Maybe they'll add a Protoss pet to the game some day...

My raid leader always insists that I bring Grunty out for all raids, because, let's face it...Grunty is REALLY the only topping the DPS charts. If Grunty can't kill it, nobody can!

He's my favorite pet of all time, and a great good luck charm!

Be aware that Grunty can be a rather loud pet with his missile firings and gun shooting animations, which he does ALOT. While this makes him incredibly fun, it can also make him a bit distracting if you are also trying to listen to other sounds such as vent conversations or game sounds.

The gurgling he makes sounds like it's coming over a Single Side-Band (SSB) radio.

After some experimentation it was discovered that when fighting with a Zergling, proximity determines who is the victor. If the Zergling is summoned right next to Grunty then the Zergling can often win. If there is distance though then Grunty always wins. Two or more Zerglings is bad in any case. I stopped experimenting after a while because they're cute and I felt bad when they died.

This little guy is just like me. He swims like a troll, has no need for good posture, wears bulky shoulders, and has a liking for firing wildly in the air!

A great pet for troll hunters. :D

(btw, seriously check out his swim animation. So awesome seeing him put his gun on his back in the water.)

Pretty loud pet - it's hard to have it out on the raid and don't get spanked by raid leader ^_~ But it's the best mini pet for hunters - especially those using guns. *CLINK-CLANK* *KABOOM* ~_^

A great little pet! He shoots his gun and his missile off frequently, unlike most vanity pets animation specials which take an age to turn up, however, this can be a downfall where there are multiple Grunty's in one place... (We had 3 Grunty's in our 10man raid, 4hrs later, our GM was ready to return each Grunty to its owner with a quick shove where the sun doesnt shine).... and my eye's are still watering.

His so called "Vocalizations" are Murloc gurgles that sound muffled by the helmet, as they should sound, also, Teutatis is right, when you learn the pet, the icon changes from the egg to the gun.

Only the rarest of murlocs is able to successfully cross dimensional barriers. Fewer still return with the kind of advanced armor and weaponry possessed by Grunty.
