Raiding With Leashes IV: Mini Pets in Wrath Raids!

#1 Unread post by Magnakilro » Thu Sep 15, 2016 11:01 am

Coming in 7.1 is the latest installment of the 'mini pets in old raids' line of achievements! This timew our teeny friends hide in Ulduar, ToC and Icc.

Pets include:

Albino Buzzard: Likely a white Wrath vulture

Giant Worm Egg: probably a Jormungar

Magnataur Hunting Horn: Snobold pet.

Nerubian Relic: Probably one of the mini Nerubians, like the ones in the Nadox encounter.

Red-Hot Coal: Likely a fire revenant, or fire golem.

Ironbound Collar: baby razorscale

Stormforged Rune: Iron golem

GLittering Ball of Yarn: baby kitty

Ominous Pile of Snow: likely a snow revenant

Blessed Seed: A lasher pet

Overcomplicated Controller: mini Leviathen tank thing most likely

Wriggling Darkness: tentacle

Fragment of Frozen Bone: mini Marrowgar

Remains of a Blood Beast: one of Saurfang's bloodbeasts

Putricide's Alchemy Supplies: Mini rotface/festergut style golems

Skull of a Frozen Whelp: baby frostwyrm or undead dragon of some sort

Drudge Remains: WotLK model ghoul

Call of the Frozen Blade: Probably one of the ghosts from Lich King P3.

Dutiful Squire/Dutiful Gruntling: High res versions of Argent Squire/Gruntling.

Collect em all to get a Celestial Invitation...inviting you to battle a Astral/Celestial foe for one last pet reward: Stardust

Not sure what Stardust actually IS other than another Algalon-0style constellation thing.

But that's everything!

There's also a new Midsummer pet: Igneous Flameling

and a new Noblegarden pet: Noblegarden Bunny....the pink rabbit.

Well, you could probably buy them off the AH if they're cageable like other raid pets.

I really want the sanctum cub and ironbound proto-whelp

Yeah but I'll be going there and farming them. I've made quite a bit of gold off the hyjal pets while they've stayed valuable so I'd imagine these will be decent gold makers for awhile too.

....I knew it.

I knew there was a reason Mimiron's Head finally dropped last week.

*laughs for days*

In truth, I'm glad to have another reason to run these again. I didn't know what I was going to do with myself not running Ulduar anymore.

Just for good measure, are they also adding a Time Lost Proto-Whelp that drops from the Time Lost Proto-Drake? Cause you know, Blizz needs to add something truly sadistic for all those OCD collectors out there ;)

So after watching a vid, I know what the Celestial thing is.

The Celestial Invitation invites you to a pet battle against Algalon. Win and you recieve Stardust, a Celestial Bunny.

Also, on the PTR, Boneshard, the mini-Marrowgar, has BONESTORM as all three of his bottom row abilities.

I'm pretty excited. I can't see what the nerubian swarmer looks like, but even if it's not one of the models I was hoping for, there's plenty of other goodies. Plus the final reward being an invitation for a pet battle is an interesting twist.

I see that Boneshard's extra BONESTORMs cost more and more health, the normal 10%, then 30% and 50%. That might keep it from being OP. In pvp, though, it could still be a nuisance to run up against a three Boneshard team. If BONESTORM debuffed the team for two turns so that BONESTORM caused increasing self-damage, that would keep the mechanic effectively the same for a one Boneshard team, but keep a three Boneshard team from being overpowered.

They're perfect intersection of grotesque and adorable. All four colors (found on npcs) are nice, I wonder if they'll be color changers or have color variants. If they were a hunter pet, I'd start using it no matter if it were silithid, spider, beetle, or whatever. I can't wait to farm up as many of those little buggers as I can.

On the subject of Mini pets in raids, Emerald Nightmare has 2 of em:

Nightmare Whelpling: Emerald Nightmare themed Legion whelp. Drop off the Dragons of Nightmare boss.

Dream Whelpling: Transparent green Legion whelp. Catchable in the Emerald Dream, which you port to after killing Xavius.
