Actually, I thought I picked up a breadcrumb for this quest line from one of the givers of the Hallow's End Dailies.

It reminds me of The Luggage from the Discworld Series by Terry Pratchett, too.

I am also glad its available at a low level.

For those doing the questing, IF you have the Traveling Tundra Mount (from Dalaran) you do not have to search for vendors or use the AH for 5 crystal vials, and 5 arcane powders. Your mount sells these items.

I tend to have this pet out all the time to count toward my Guild's "Kill 50,000" Critter achievement for the "Armadillo Pup". It is also great for people running around farming mobs for pet drops. It kills a lot of critters as you run around, a good thing considering it is passive.

I do laugh when this tiny box pulls in a much larger critter into it. I was leveling Archeology while in Arathi Highlands and saw it drag in a cow, literally laughing out loud as I saw it.

Two interesting points: Critters eaten by the Creepy Crate count towards the critter kill achievement for guilds, and if you have two creepy crates near each other, one of them will occasionally steal the other crate's meal!

Pair the Death Grip ability with the Mechanical ability Minefield, like the Pet Bombling or Darkmoon Tonk has. Then Devour. You'll see this pet in a new way.

This is a GREAT pet.  

Battle pet-it has the ability to pull an injured battle pet back into battle. Companion-it will eat/kill critters. This ability helps both you and your guild with the achievement for critter kills. WARNING: if you have a quest that requires collecting critters, put it away or else you'll be competing with the crate.

Amusing-it expels green gas, licks the rim of the crate, flips itself, & devours a cow in one gulp!

Currently only available during Hallow's Eve.

This pet is Uncommon.  The only way you can get this little guy as a rare is to use a Flawless Undead Battle Stone or a Flawless Battle Stone.

This creepy pet is truly solid. With 1725 health and undead racial you can more often than not get off two BONESTORMS, put up Curse of Doom at least once and then Chomp up the pet you are facing. This means you will have done considerable damage to back line pets, especially humaniods, and probably killed the one you are facing. Excellent starting pet. Critters will of course kill you quicker, and watch out for Prowl. Stuns are genenrally not much of an issue with such high health.

It's always nice to pop on the computer and get a pet. Do a little questing then it's yours. I didn't even know this pet existed until I finished the questline. I was very happy because it's acutully a pretty cool unique pet. Blizzard knows we love our pets so I hope they keep these suprises coming.

@Everyone, As far as I know, this pet is only offered through a questline on Halloween. As for repeatability I did get my second Crate this year but I didn't try to see if another char could take the quest as well. I am assuming that it was possible. If you missed it this year just make sure you focus on the Christmas pets coming up.

I never got this pet before and it appears the questline to obtain it is not available. Anyone know if it is only available to certain races?

This pet is one of my FAVORITE battle pets.  It eats critters.  Take him out for a stroll once. I've seen mine eat a small frog and a emerald boa.

Too bad death grip and curse of doom are the same tier, CoD then grip another pet to the front and fight it while the other dies on the back row would have been sweet. As it is you can still DoT up a pet then grip another to the front while the DoT ticks.

Reminds me of that great 1982 classic horror film Basket Case.

This has to be my new favorite pet. It's just so... creepy!

I've seen my crate spew green gas in addition to the other animations.

It fires some sort of shadow spell and snaches it, kinda like a DK's Death Grip. I also noticed a very distinct absence of rats in SW when the holiday started... :P

Bring it around a yellow creature and it will eat it from a rabbit to a dear. One of the funniest pets yet.

This Hallow's End pet is surprisingly good, nice to have as a support.

It has a wide range of attacks and 1725 health, plus the Undead immortal round makes it a good damage spunge and dealer.

You can annoy a team with Death Grip and Bonestorm, and apply DoT's or heal after a kill to last another couple of rounds.


I don't like the sound he makes, it's a bit too loud, but it is funny to see him eat critters. Luckily he doesn't makes these noises during battles.

I can't find this pet at any of the listed Stable Masters.  Is this pet only available during Hallow's End?
