This pet was formerly known as 'Tiny Walking Bomb'. As of patch 3.3.3, this previously-BoP pet is now BoU, meaning you no longer need to be an engineer to obtain it. As of patch 3.1, the BoP schematic has a 100% chance to drop from [28+]Mekgineer Thermaplugg in Gnomeregan, enabling both goblin and gnomish engineers to obtain the schematic.

As others have said, this little guy is pretty nice for a PvE team against a boss with backline pets.

Minefield + Stun (and enemy switch) is a hard hitting combo.

It is faster than the average Mechanical pet, aside from S/S breeds.


I only wish it had a Boombot ability like Lil' XT, instead of Batter / Zap, it would have been fun to place a bomb too, making little copies of itself like a selfcontained Bombsquad.

The only pet with Minefield that can also force a tamer pet swap at the same time (Screeching Gears). 


Example use: Jeremy Feasel starts with a magic pet. Lay Minefield, spam Screeching Gears until the stun triggers. Swap to an elemental pet with Stun Seed and beat the tonk without using it. Apply Stun Seed on the magic pet, swap back to Pet BomblingMinefieldStun Seed triggers and he'll swap in his beast pet. Easy win.

This guy pairs great with a Call Lightning user to take out Zao in the Celestial Tournament. Go Batter/Toxic Smoke/Explode, and you can tear chunks out of the big ox, just before exploding in his face. This also works for Lil' Oondasta, though the other Legendary beasts are too fast for Batter to get its maximum effect (save Gorespine, but Spiked Skin shuts this strategy down just as hard).

I love this little guy, throw down a mine field when you are about to finish off an enemy and the next one coming in is going to be a beast pet, he will hit the minefield upon entering. Boooom you can sometimes kill them in one shot before they even get started.  Very effective pet if used correctly.

This pet will be made Bind on Use soon, and won't be limited to engineers only. Assuming the materials won't change here is what you will need to have an engineer make one for you:

6 Copper Bars

Bring them to a jewelcrafter and have them make you
3 Delicate Copper Wires. Bring the wires to an engineer along with

2 Essences of Fire
6 Mithril Bars
3 Iron Bars
1 Silver Bar
3 Heavy Stones
1 Heart of Fire

You can use Fused Wirings left over to make Lil' Smoky.

Back in my day, this little guy was a tough one to get. First you had to pick goblin engineering. This would mean that you could never obtain Lil' Smoky. After wards, you had to destroy your goblin membership card and pay 2g to renew it. You would be sent a letter in the mail 24 hours later, confirming your membership and a box. Inside the box would be some cool stuff, including the schematic for this guy, though it was VERY low. I was lucky to get it on my first renewal. =)

He clanks up a storm as he walks! Blizz should mute his footsteps, and maybe make him kamikaze himself on critters? The Genocide of the Scorchling, combined with the suicide of the Rocket Chicken!

Not to be confused with the Bob-omb from Super Mario Brothers.

This pet doesn't require high engineering so it's easy to drop gathering profession to level up engineering, go get the schematic, make pet, drop engineering and level gathering profession back up again. More tricky though if you only have crafting professions and you would loose all your recipes/plans etc.

I dropped herbalism which was easy to level back up and as a reward for a few hours work I now have Pet Bombling and Lil'Smoky :)

It's awsome because you can yell " I HAVE A BOMB " when you summon it, and people do /point and /scared at it. Now you can get it in Gnomer, but before you had to pay tons on gold to recive it via mail. Yea, you had to pay to recive bombs in your mailbox.

Possibly explosive, definitely adorable. Keep away from open flame.
