    Bad Robot Pet for Everyone!

    So we finally have it officially from Blizzard, Engineers will be able to produce this little bot in homage to JJ Abrams' Bad Robot Productions.

    Haven't gotten around to getting my engineer past 525 engineering. But once I do (should be soon) I'll start making them.

    Awww, not even so they can go to good loving homes and have owners that adore them? (plus you can make a decent sum of gold from some of the engi pets!)

    No idea on that yet, probably just go train the schematic, would be nice it was something more fun though

    Maybe, but I'll really be hoping more to obtain the frigging SkyClaw. Read about it here, saved up all the mats for it, super-excited like I haven't been in a year or more... for naught.

    Yeah I feel you;/ my 2 best friends are both avid Engineers and were also looking forward to it and were sad it didn't get the go ahead for last patch, hopefully it'll come in the next or soon after

    It'll most likely be gated behind some dailies, an exalted rep, and a random drop off a last tier boss.
    At the same time.


    I'll get it.
    Eventually.

    I don't really understand. Is it just a random homage?

    Seems quite stupid to just randomly add it and say "lel it was added because we like JJ Abrams"
    Hey, remember when I dropped my keys and you thought the phone was ringing?

    I'd guess from what they say in this quote that it is them respecting another company that produces awesome entertainment. Kinda like how they put little easter eggs. Just a nice thing to do.

    Or maybe they have something in the works with the company?

    I'm really surprised. While I think its cool that they're respecting another company, I don't buy it.

    I've got a gut feeling they've bought the rights to adapt something!

    Yeah, I'd say the most likely scenario is that they're working with Bad Robot on something or another, and some of them thought it'd be cool to have it in WoW.

    If they were doing in-game advertising, it would probably be a bit more overt and closer to a release of something.

    You could well be right, not sure what it could be if thats the case though, any speculation?

    Yes, because Mechanicals are the easiest to level.

    And he'll probably sell well at first.

    I don't mind having another pet, its just kind of odd seeing what looks like a goblin body with a blocked head.
