As any of you who are familiar with me and my WoWing priorities know, I’m a bit vanity pet crazy! To say I am more excited about getting new pets in Cataclysm than anything else, probably wouldn’t be much of a stretch. All of you gold-making opportunists out there get ready to farm or craft these babies and post them on the Auction House for ridiculous prices, because I will be the sucker buying them from you for thousands of gold, lol.
I’ve been checking the Auction House in the Beta every day for pets, but so far I have only come across one of these, and I couldn’t afford the 40,000g they were asking to buy it, lol. It and the rest of these might not actually make it into Cataclysm, but I sure hope they do, as I’d be thrilled to have any of them!
Without further delay, here are the pets I found by searching Google for Cataclysm pets and then looked up in WoW Model Viewer to get good pictures to post on my blog when I wrote about them! (*takes a breath* lol)
Engineering Pets :
With any luck Blizz will stick with making Engineering pets tradeable! It seems like they just made Lil’Smokey and the Pet Bombling available to non-engineers, so I am hoping they follow this trend with all profession pets for Cataclysm!
De-Weaponized Mechanical Companion : I am going to be heartbroken if I can’t get one of these! My opinion might be swayed by the fact that I have a bunny, but I just think this is ADORABLE! And so shiny! And his big green eyes would match my Warlock’s goggles perfectly!
Archeology Pets :
Fossilized Hatchling : I’ve managed to get all of the other Raptor Hatchling Pets, so I must get one of these no matter what it takes, lol. For a skeleton, isn’t he surprisingly cute? Probably wouldn’t be very cuddly, but what raptor truly is?
Crawling Hand : This pet kind of creeps me out, lol. It looks awesome and is unlike any of the vanity pets in game so far, but the sight of a little hand scurrying after me wherever I go . . . yeah, I think I’ll save him for Hallow’s End, lol.
Enchanted Lantern : These are kind of cool! The one on the left was listed as a Blood Elf Lantern and the one on the right was listed as a Draenei Lantern. I’m not sure if only one or the other will be available to each of the factions, or if they will just be two different pets, but it sure is awesome that enchanters will finally be able to use their magics to make companions, hehe!
Mining Pet :
Elementium Geode : This is the pet that I have seen in the Beta Auction House a few times. Hopefully I can purchase it cheap early in Cataclysm when everyone is mining like crazy, as long as the drop isn’t too rare! It is mined from Elementium nodes.
Other Pets :
Armadillo Pup : Now that is a cute pet! You get him for completing the guild Achievement Critter Kill Squad, which is to kill 50,000 critters. That is going to take a long time to solo… but I’ll do it if I have to so I can get this pet, lol.
Rustberg Gull : When I first noticed the Seagulls hanging around the Harbor in Stormwind I hoped there would be a Seagull pet, and my hopes came true! He is available from the Baradin’s Wardens Quartermaster at honored reputation.
Dark Phoenix Hatchling : I just got my Phoenix Hatchling from MGT, but I’m already looking forward to getting his dark brother! This is rewarded for completing all of the Heroic Cataclysm dungeons with your guild. I better have more guildmates by then so I can actually get one of these, lol.
Those were all of the pets I could find. If any of you know of any pets coming in Cataclysm, please let me know so I can check them out and possibly add them to this post!
Thanks for Reading!
