Patch 4.3 - World Event Pets No Longer Bound on Pick Up
An interesting change is made to pets in Patch 4.3, all world event pets are no longer bound on pick up. Feel free to yell at me for not spotting that a week before when you could still buy the Feline Familiar to keep it and sell it after the patch. Thanks to darkquantum for the news tip!

In Patch 4.3, Guilds with inactive guild leaders can now impeach their GL and replace him with another active user.

In the event that a guild leader takes a leave of absence and remains inactive for an extended period of time, it can be difficult for some guilds to carry on as normal. To help assist with these situations, we're introducing a new system in patch 4.3 known as "inactive guild leader replacement" that will allow players of the appropriate rank to take over leadership of a guild from an inactive guild leader via the Guild tab.

The way inactive guild leader replacement works is pretty straightforward. If a guild leader’s character is inactive for 30 days, a notification will appear in the Guild News & Events feed which can only be seen by guild members who are eligible to become the new guild leader. To determine eligibility, the game will look for the highest ranked character in the guild that's logged on in the past week, and any guild member from that rank will be able to request guild leadership simply by clicking on the notification.

As with many actions in World of Warcraft, clicking on the notification will open up a confirmation window which, once accepted, will transition leadership from the inactive guild leader to the first player to request leadership. If guild leadership is changed, the old guild leader will be notified via email to his or her registered Battle.net address. While some players may need to log out and back in before their Guild tab will visually update, the change in leadership will be immediate, with all ranks and permissions remaining in-tact.

Please note that if you're an active leader of a guild, this system should not affect you or your guild. The goal of inactive guild leader replacement is simply to allow guilds which have found themselves without leadership for a long period of time to resolve the situation on their own without the need to contact our In-Game Support department.

Inactive guild leader replacement is currently live on the PTR, but keep in mind that it may be difficult to test, as a guild leader will need to be inactive for a full 30 days before the option to transition leadership will become available.

    Man... It sure would have been nice to know the seasonal pets will no longer be bound... I had so many of those Squashlings and deleted them all... Now, if they'd just make the epics from the seasonal dungeons account bound or something...

    You can purchase snowballs en masse during Winter Veil, and then keep them e.g. on a bank char.

    I approve of this post.

    I would have rather seen the gear loot from the event bags become BoA instead of the pet change. For instance the Hallow's End plate helm. It was an upgrade for one of my alts, but only dropped on my shaman, who can't use it.

    No other pets that come to mind immediately have such a requirement.

    The wolpertinger does not require hops
    the spring rabbit does not require an egg


    Tiny snowman requires a snow ball to summon.
    Winter's helper (the gnome) requires a snow ball to summon

    There's a daily quest in which u get snowballs, is located in Northrend

    If you would, you'd only get 1 copper each for them on the AH (minus AH fees) since everyone would have 5000000 Squashlings as well :P

    Yep. Someone might want to confirm the date on that. It would kill the point of the PTR if nobody shows up or everyone shows up and there is no testing.

    HAH! Good thing I kept all of those Sinister Squashlings! I'm still gonna wait til after 5.0 to use em tho, just incase the merge of all character pets don't stack same pets and I lose em all, I'm gonna level the crap out of a Sinister Squashling, sell it, then do it again with another!

    Dethroning a guild leader should grant a new title "the Usurper".

    *anxiously awaits for Brewfest mounts to become unbound...I still have 2 kodos on one character and a kodo or a ram on another*

    I'm really happy about what their doing with the pets even though I deleted all my world event pets . Hopefully they make children's week pets not BoP, I would love to use sleepy willy in the pet battle system.
