I'm posting this here since this guy is more relevant to pets than anything else...

I just got back from LA, where I managed to meet up with the very cool (developer) guy who has been lurking around our forums and making all the new skin and rare changes. He's been going beyond the call of duty of ensure we get as many new looks as possible before Cata release (and some more even after release). As I've mentioned before, he's been in contact with Mania and me for a short while now. While many of my findings on the beta have been luck / hours of searching, quite a few recent ones have been because I've been able to give him suggestions directly and he's let me know when they've been added, which has helped me a lot ;)

Anyway, he very generously gave me a tour of Blizzard HQ. For anyone who is interested, and with his permission, I thought I'd post a photo. Unfortunately I'm in the photo as well, sorry. And also it's a bit blurry in the dim light :P He's the cute blond one in the bowling shirt on the left. I'm the dorky one in the t-shirt on the right:

AND, ladies, he's handsome, funny and a WoW developer. I'm not sure of his star sign or favourite drink, but need I say more?! And he can't defend himself from this and still remain anonymous. Hah ;D

And since I was geeking out at Blizzard HQ, I had to get a pic of me at the famous orc statue:

Whoah thats awesome. Big thanks for getting in MORE dead things/parrots I've been gleeing at it's great! I notice tho Wain you have eye lasers, dare I ask if you had a big geek out while there?

If he does manage to sneak in the lavander owl come in he's totally earned a big e-hug from me!

Oooooooooh! That explains a LOT! :D Does he have a name so we can thank him properly? "Thank you Mr. Blizzard Developer Guy" doesn't quite have a good ring to it... (Or perhaps it does? Depends on your preference, I suppose. ;))

You guys - Mania, Mr. Blizzard Developer Guy, and you Wain - have done amazing work. Back when I first rolled a hunter (my first proper toon on my own account, and still my main) I had this vision of a hunter as someone who bonded with whatever beast she came across. Although it didn't stop me from playing her (and loving it) I was definitely disappointed to see the limitations put on the hunter-beast relationship. You three have brought the class very much in line with that vision. :) Thank you very, very much. <3

Hello Anonymous Blonde Dev!

I wonder, is he an animal lover in real life? So much dedication to our cause! :lol:

Also, I love both your shirts... Is yours a Tim Burton or is it just really similar >.<

Guy on the right is way more sexy. The Dev needs to shave!

Good to see that we have the ear of the PTB at Blizzard!

Wain, Mania and Mysterious Helper - Awesome job! You're making it hard for me not to make another three Hunters! :D

I'll have to disagree on the first part, he looks hot with the stubble. But yeah, Wain is smoking!

I want to give "Mr. Blonde Blizzard Developer" a massive hug for all the pet changes!

Thank you sir for listening to us here at Petopia. I can't think of any expansion where we had so many new tameable pets, especially using old skins that have been in the MPQ files since vanilla.

SO TRUE.

Hm. If straight people complain about cute people being gay and the inverse is true...what's going on? D:

*Starts googling*
