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.

    If its the way the old pets used to be it means that you can learn it on one toon and then send it to another toon to learn it there as well. I have several pets like that from Vanilla and some anniversary pets.

    NOOOOOOOOO…you know how many pumpkins I deleted when doing daily HH runs on my 4 85's. *breaks down crying, curling up in the fetal position rocking back and forth*

    Yes! I knew my gut feeling to keep an extra sinister squashling in my bag would be worth it somehow.
  1. Nelle's Avatar
    I knew about this after checking AH randomly on PTR some few days before the event was over and notice a pumpkin head up there and I then kept VERY quiet about it.
    I managed to collect 44 pumpkins and 11 cats on the last 3-4 days of the event by doing all the trick and treats in the world on my 10 chars

    Had hoped for this to be kept "in the dark" for just a bit longer so more people had deleted their extra pumpkins. At least I have the cats who will be VERY unique since I doubt many bothered to buy extra of those if they didnt know about the non-BOP part.



    I expect them to go up in price when 5.0 lands next spring/summer. Since people want them for their pet battle collection, and don't wanna wait for the event.

    Doubt the pets will really be worth much on my server. The ease of getting them will kill the market.

    By the way multiple pets listed werent BoP to begin with.

    Probably for pet battles, down the road. I had a feeling they might do this at some point (though I am surprised this soon) and I hoarded all my Sinister Squashlings.

    No newer pet had "Binds when Used" anymore.

    I doubt we will actually sell the whole pet, as in lose it in the process, this will only cause issues with pets that you can only acquire once (mostly, those rewarded by quests)
    I think when we sell e.g. a level 25 Sinister Squashling, we will keep a level 0 version.

    What about Frigid Frostling????
  1. Zevim's Avatar
    that guild leader replacement is just another way of Blizzard forcing people to give them money

    how about a guild leader who is in hospital anad can`t play, how about someone who takes a vacation, how about many toher posibilities why you can`t login for more than 30 days? and what happens to the old guild leader ?

    god forbid anyone contacs the "In-Game Support department"...we all know that is just a stupid excuse

    I joke about being upset about deleting them. Would have been a nice caveat, but I have my little fox kit from Tol Barad. Though he doesn't fly he stays by my side. On my other characters I have my trusty wyvern cub, which I completely adore.
  1. Tokurei's Avatar
    So why didn't they make the MOUNTS BoA? I swear I run the holiday things over and over on my main with no luck, while my rogue alt gets 3-4 of the brewfest mounts every time. IT'S PAINFUL TO DELETE THEM OKAY.
