For quite some time, you have been able to buy cat pets for a long time to follow you around in cat/travel form. WoW’s anniversary pet gave us a white bear, and now we get more non-combat pets in 3.1 that are similar in style to our shapeshift forms!
New in 3.1 are tree pets and bear pets announced by MMO-champion! For only 40 Champion Seal’s (each), you can have your own pet to match 2 of our shapeshifting forms (still no moonkin pet, though). As of now, it looks like both of these may only be Alliance-side pets, but that they are not currently marked as be BOP, so the horde should be able to buy them off the neutral AH.
The tree form pet is a Teldrassil Sproutling:
The bear form pet is a baby bear cub:
Aren’t they cute?
Also, for moonkin, there may be a plump turkey pet, but I’m not sure where it comes from yet. Not the same as a mini-moonkin… perhaps an owl or one of the other bird pets fits the form matching description better?
My goal for this week is to also make sure I have all the dual-spec guides (for leveling or max level) all ready to go for the new patch. At the very least, the patch is probably not coming out tomorrow, which gives us some extra time to prepare for it.
