As far as high quality goes, the pheonix hatchling is the last high quality pet released that I can remember pre pet store. The game has been increasing in quality steadily since release everywhere from pet models, mount models, gear models, areas etc... Yes vanilla pets were low quality but everything was low quality in vanilla by todays standards. While pet quality has gone up with the rest of the game, that only applies to pets acquired via the pet store. It doesn't bother me terribly, but it is fairly obvious to see why it bothers other people.
lame...introduce the new inks first greedy ass blizzard.
so... damn... ADORABLE! I will pay for it if i have to!
We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.
Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?
maybe just maybe they decided to give us something for wow 8 anniversary?
To all those saying 'maybe its the anniversary pet this year' i really hate to put a damper on that but... First they said 'Adoption details coming soon' if it were a 'mail to all toons who log in this week' i doubt they would word it as adoption. More then likely it will be pet store bought. They have also said before they did not want to get in the habit of handing out pets for things like random anniversaries(other then milestone years, like 5-10-...), doubt i could find the blue post about it cause its a few years old now, though im sure a few other people remember it.
99% chance it will be pet store.
.5% chance it will be anniversary
.5% chance its something else no one has thought of, perhaps comes with some other merchandise, some 'real life' store deal, maybe even something with the megablocks, who knows.
of course now that ive said this, its 100% chance it will be for the anniversary just so i have to eat my own words, yay me.
You know, if part of it were going to charity like the pet that was made as support for the Earthquake/Tsunami for Japan, then that would be okay in my book. But if all profits are going to Blizz like some of their mounts and other pets, then that really pisses me off because ppl are already paying $15/month. If the game is F2P then have at it and charge ppl for whatever, but $15 a month and more if you a pet/mount collector? Screw u Blizz

I may actually have to pay for this... it's... irresistibly cute...
Who needs working ink vendors when you can pay money on top of your sub fee for a pet?
