    The timing isn't a coincidence, it will most likely be a charity pet for hurricane victims.

    However, I'm a little bit upset that even though buying pets/mounts from store is optional, we will never get such mounts or pets with this quality, cuteness and etcetera through in-game source, basically not from the in-game store. Like, do we have a colour changing mount or pet? We don't as far as I know..
    Well, I am still a huge fan of both Val'kyr pets, also, Schroedinger's Cat and Mr. Bigglesworth. And don't forget Murky. :3

    Most 7.2.5 class mounts have a different color depending on spec.

    Schroedinger's Cat ?
    Ah, I see, in english it is called Widget the Departed.
    Seems to be one of the very very very very...very few instances of the german name being better in WoW than the english one.

    It's awesome you work for free, though. How is it you pay your bills and buy food?
    It is most likely going to be a charity pet because of hurricane Irma, for example they put the cinder kitten out as a charity pet for relief funds of hurricane sandy

    1th its the most likely: it has todo with the netherlightcrusible the symbols on the forhead are just syleized.

    2nd not likely but who knows: its for blizzccon.

    3rd: its a shop item.
    4th, it will be a charity pet for hurricane Irma
    because its listed as being a shop pet in its file.

    Buy a wow token with gold, that is how you get the pet ingame, just like asny other mount/pet for gold off a vendor, this one costs about 100k if you count it that way.

    Yes, another pet to add to my collection!

    Tons of pets and mounts added in 7.3....yet people still bitch about store mounts/pets.

    Keep hating haters....I'll keep buying!

    I am kinda suprised people complain about "oh store mount" i mean... would they rather have it ingame on a vendor? if people want to buy the pet they can use gold they would buy the pet for, to buy a wow token to buy the pet with.. i mean, having it on the store with the new wow token just means its gold price changes day by dat.

    YES. Give it to me now! I will drop everything and raise this cutie-cake to 25 immediately!

    Prediction: Blizzard will reveal the pet tonight, during the telethon for Hurricane disaster relief. Not like, IN the show, but around the same time

    Hey look. Someone throwing a tantrum about an optional purchase!

    And if this is a charity pet I will buy it. Always willing to give money towards a good cause.

    I like how people are genuinely upset about a pet (that they would forget they had) being locked behind a paywall. Sad.

    Subjective opinion.
    There are store mounts/pets I like, and some I do not.
    Store does not simply equal quality for everyone.
    Sure the colour change is I think currently unique to the store, but that alone does not make a pet or mount attractive to me personally.
    In fact the last mount (can't recall the name at present) doesn't appeal to me at all in its appearance, colour changing or not.
    And that is one of several that don't.
