MMO-Champion - New Stuff Coming to the Pet Store!
New Stuff Coming to the Pet Store!

We’ve got some new stuff coming to the Pet Store, and we wanted to give everyone a quick sneak peek. Obviously, the Pet Store has been the place where we sell pets and mounts, but we’ve come up with some new types of cosmetic goodies, including some fun new little toys and Transmogrifiables.

First up: a trio of cosmetic helms for Transmogrification. ( Jewel of the Firelord, Hood of Hungering Darkness, and Crown of Eternal Winter) When Transmog went into the game, people immediately started talking about the possibility of just buying armor looks. So we’re going ahead and forging a few helms and seeing how they fit. They don’t have any stats, they’re just for looks, and you can use them to change the appearance of the helms for any characters of any class or race (they work with all armor types). They’re great for spicing up a Transmog set—or replacing a tier head piece you hate the looks of. No need to check that ‘Hide Helm’ box any longer!




Here are a few images, but keep in mind that these are all special-effecty and animated in a really cool way. You may have even seen these models pop up on Wowhead or MMO-Champion earlier this year.

We’re also trying out something else new. A lot of people have liked the kinds of fun, limited-use items you can get from the WoW TCG—so we’re taking that idea to the Pet Store. Soon you’ll be able to snag two fun new little toys: the Seesaw and Iron Hitching Post!

You can jump on the Seesaw with a party member and relive the childhood glee of trying to slam your friend into the ground . . . or you can have a big ogre named Lunk launch them into the air. Really, though, you’ll probably just look super cute gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes. D’awwwww.


True story: Worgen are exactly the same weight as Ogres.

The Iron Hitching Post is a little different: It’s an item you set down that allows you and up to 24 of your closest raiding cohorts to each jump on your own new unearthly Iron Warhorse mount. You can use it for smaller parties too, and it’s also great for Battlegrounds. Imagine the look on your opponents’ faces when they see a unified front of ghost horses galloping toward them . . . just to ruin everything and capture Snowfall Graveyard. (STOP IT!)




Hyah ghost-steed! Later I’ll feed you some ghost-oats in the ghost-barn.

We don’t have specific release dates for any of these items yet, but you can expect to see them show up in the Pet Store in the near future.

Let us know what you think, and what other kinds of fun and cosmetic items you might like to see in the Pet Store in the comments below!

    The helm designs are straight ripoffs from Path of Exile too, makes it even funnier.

    Well at least they're offering solutions for avoiding having to wear their awful new tier gear.

    Good is very subjective.


    I think they are cool, but it's all cosmetic. I won't buy it, and my gameplay experience won't be harmed in the slightest.

    We all knew this was going to happen. And as long as it is only cosmetic stuff I'm totally OK with it.

    If you think this qualifies as good, then yes. Personally, I don't like the 3 showcased so far.

    Makes sense expanding this, I don't care myself how a company makes their money. Be it B2P, P2P, F2P with cashshop or any combination of it.
    Mount looks nice however, so might pick that one up some day ^^

    They get away with it, proven for years now. They'll implement anything they want for $$$ and people will throw it at them, on top of the sub.

    You do realize this cosmetic right? This isn't going to hurt anything.

    Oh, I'm not implying anything. I'm just doing my Ron Paul.
