Patch 5.0.1 | Posted: October 27, 2009

This pet was available for a limited time to all players on China servers if they log in with a character between October 19th and November 24th 2009. This gift is given out via an in-game mail to welcome players back to Azeroth after Chinese servers had been offline for several months. In addition to receiving this pet, logging in also also earns eligible characters the Jade Tiger achievement.

As of Patch 5.4.1, this pet is now a reward from the Recruit-A-Friend system in regions outside of Asia.

As of June 11, 2019, the Recruit-A-Friend program was put on hiatus, making this pet unavailable. It's unknown if and when this pet will be made available again.

I found out last Sunday (April 12, 2015) that, Danish people can perform a RaF in-game and that way get this pet.


Note: Only down side is that you have to wait 7 days for the Reward.

For so long, I've felt like Ralphie in the Christmas Story: looking in awe through the store window at the Red Rider BB Gun. With RAF, I can finally have one of the coveted tigers! Please advise me which you think is better: the Jade or Zipao Tiger? I'm torn! The Zipao Tiger is Breed 6, but has the same abilities as the Feline Familiar. The Jade Tiger is Breed 3, but has Jade Claw (+5% hit chance than Onyx Bite). Both of those abilities are fantastic against most other pets. What do you think?

Very confusing  pet for me...So many different posts on many different websites. Some say was restricted for China, other say it's possible ti get according to the pet journal that shows no restrictions at all. Anyone has an answerr about that pet or is it still a huge mystery ?

Apparently, this little bugger will be back in MoP, as a random pet that joins your battles, he can be captured. He'll even give a FoS, too it seems!

Cool pet, but I don't think those folks in china are lucky.

Oh hes beautiful! Those in China are somewhat lucky to have him however unlucky to have missed out on some other pets and not to mention the time! I dont know how people survived, Id certainly suffer and feel upset if I couldn't get my hands on Wolk when it arrived! (I was one of those people who bought it at midnight!)

Well played all around and well deserved to those who have him! Id love to see some pictures and some idle movements if people have time :)

There was a Feat of Strength for an Onyx Tiger put in at the same time as this one. No idea when or where we'll see it, though, alas. I had hoped this model would be a tamable (non-spirit beast) hunter pet one day, so this is as close as I'm likely to get.

I think that perhaps Blizzard should make it where all the different realms (EU/China/US...etc) get the same pet (even if they have to use it for different promos.... then people wouldn't be complaining). ....just a thought! =)

I'd like to see some video of this little guy in action! If anyone has any links to a Youtube (or any other site's) movie of him, please share with Breanni so we can finally see him at play. ^_^

Hmm, looks like something I would keep on my nick-nack shelf. Wait a minute... *Glares suspiciously at jade tiger figurine*

I wonder... *Pokes figurine, and jumps back when it snarls ferociously* AAAGH! D:

I know many of you are upset about pets that are limited to certain regions, like this one. While I understand your frustration, please try to keep your comments regarding this pet constructive. Telling everyone that you think its unfair that you can't get it or degrading another country is not helpful to anyone. Thanks!

Considered to be lucky, tigers carved of jade are prized, but taming a jade tiger itself is an even greater prize.
