WoW Pets Guide

Buy WoW Gold Cheap

Hello, and welcome to yet another Dianius guide! The main index to all my Guides is here.

This one has been quite heavily requested, and is all about collecting Pets.

What are Pets, you ask

Pets are my favourite part of the game. They're little creatures that you can collect, most of which simply follow you about, although a few will actually fight for you as well. Some are bought from vendors, some are the reward from a quest, some are dropped by mobs and others can be made by Engineers.

I should point out here that I'm not talking about Hunter Pets, which are beasts that the Hunter has tamed to fight for them. Those fight, level up with the Hunter, have special attacks and are an integral part of the Hunter class.

I'm only talking about the little collectable pets.

What's the point of Pets

Well, for the most part, just to follow you about and look cute 8-) Some will fight for you in a limited capacity, for a short period of time, but most don't 'do' anything as such.

Generally speaking, you can only have one Pet out at a time (not counting Hunter pets, a Hunter can have his tamed pet and a collectable pet out at the same time). However, some of the Combat Pets (those that will fight for you for a short period of time) can be taken out at the same times as a non-combat Pet.

So, what Pets are there available in the game then

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I'll answer this one with the following... 8-)

he above picture shows me (in the middle, riding the big cat (a Striped Nightsaber, just for completeness 8-) )) with all my current pets as of writing this Guide. I have, to the best of my knowledge, almost every dropped, quested or made pet I have access too. I'm missing 10 (that I can get) in total, which I'll cover separately later.

To pre-empt the obvious first question... yes, I said earlier on that you can only have one pet out at a time. So, how did I get them all out for that picture then

I didn't. What I did do was find a nice pretty spot, get each pet out in turn, get it in roughly the right place for distance and perspective while keeping it more or less the right size (some are a bit bigger than they should be so as not to lose too much detail), take a couple of dozen screenshots so I can pick the best 'pose', then cropped each one, edited out the background pixel by pixel, and pasted them into one master picture.

Why yes, I am a sad, obsessive wierdo! What, the 40+ pets weren't a big enough clue 8-)

I don't have every bought pet, although I have at least one example of everything. There are nine others that I haven't bought (so far!) simply because I was running out of room to keep them all, and really wanted the 'harder' to get ones first. However, some of the bought ones were so cute that I had to buy them 8-)

As you can see, there are quite a lot of them kicking about. Forty-two in that screenshot alone, plus twenty-one I don't have (six dropped, two quested, one made that I can get, three made that I can't get, and the nine I haven't bought yet).

There are also four pets that you can only get as a result of 'out-of-game' criteria, such as buying the Collector's Edition instead of the normal one, or having attended a convention. Or, perhaps, having written a few highly popular Guides *HINT* *HINT* 8-)

There are also four that aren't in that picture, mostly because I ran out of room, which sort of count, so I'll include them as well.

So, there are seventy-one 'Pets' (including the loose definition ones) currently in the game (as far as I know), although no one character can actually collect them all as several are mutually exclusive Engineered pets (the skill needed to get one prohibits you getting the skill needed to get the other) and three are mutually exclusive Collector's Edition pets (you can only have one of the three available on any one character).

Below is a write-up on each one. The relatively easy to get ones are all detailed in this Guide. For those that are a bit harder to get I've written up a separate Guide and linked to that.

Many pets are bought from a vendor in or near a starting city, and only characters on that side can buy them, however they are all tradable until actually used, and so can be transferred to a character on the other side using the Neutral Auction Houses in Gadgetzan, Everlook and Booty Bay. I've written a short 'How To' at the end of the Guide.

I'll start with the pets I currently own. Here's the same picture as above, except with all the pets blanked out and numbered, for easy identification...

1) Mechanical Dragonling

This one is Engineer-made, and is a combat pet, meaning it will fight for you not just follow you around.

The schematic is bought from a vendor, Gnaz Blunderflame in Stranglethorn Vale. It is a limited supply schematic, meaning that when someone buys the one he currently has in stock there is a delay before he gets another one in to sell.

You need to be level 30 and have 200 Engineering skill to make AND USE this pet, meaning you can't simply buy a pre-made one from an Engineer and use it unless you are also an Engineer. It requires the following supplies to make:-

1x Bronze Framework, 4x Iron Strut, 4x Gyrochronatom, 2x Citrine and 1x Fused Wiring.

The item you make is actually a Trinket, which needs to be equipped to summon your Dragonling. The Mechanical Dragonling is level 35, and lasts a maximum of one minute (if it doesn't die first), with a cooldown of an hour before you can summon it again. You cannot equip the trinket while fighting, it must be done before a fight, and there is a 30 second cooldown between equipping it and being able to use it.

Like most of the other Combat Pets, these cannot be commanded, and will simply follow you around until something attacks you, at which point they'll join in to defend you, so you need to wait until you're actually fighting to summon it, otherwise the minute will be up before it's had the chance to fight.

2) Mithril Mechanical Dragonling

This one is another Engineer-made combat pet, and the next model up from the Mechanical Dragonling above.

The schematic is brought from a vendor, Ruppo Zipcoil in The Hinterlands. and again is a limited supply.

You need to be level 40 and have 250 Engineering skill to make AND USE this pet. It requires the following supplies to make:-

14x Mithril Bar, 4x Heart of Fire, 4x Truesilver Bar, 2x Inlaid Mithril Cylinder, 2x Goblin Rocket Fuel and 2x Star Ruby.

Again, it's a Trinket, same rules as above. This Dragonling is level 50 though.

It's the same model as the Mechanical Dragonling above, but that's fine as they're very cute 8-) Plus that means I can re-use the same screenshot, thus saving my time and your bandwidth, isn't that nice of me!

3) Hawk Owl

This is a bought non-combat pet. It will only follow you around, it won't fight at all.

Conversely, mobs won't attack it either, so it won't get killed or 'agro' any nearby mobs (although obviously you still might 8-) ).

It is sold by Shylenai in Darnassus, and costs 50 silver (before Honoured discount).

They're quite active pets, they flap around you and do little 'diving' moves now and then, which looks good.

A word of advice to Gnomes... bird pets like owls or parrots have a somewhat annoying tendency to flap right in front of your face, obscuring your view if (like me) you play in first person.

I bought an Owl for my little Gnome Warrior, thinking she'd look like a little Gnomish Pallas, but she just ended up looking like Mad Jack McMad, flailing her arms about shouting 'Shoo, get out of it, out of my way' all the time.

Blizzard, if you're reading this, please change where birds flap for Gnomes... just by the right shoulder would be ideal! 8-)

4) Tranquil Mechanical Yeti

This is an Engineer-made non-combat pet, however is does not require any Engineering skill to use, and so can be used by anyone.

The schematic is given out for free by Umi Rumplesnicker in Everlook in Winterspring, but only to characters with 250+ Engineering skill who have previously completed her 'Are We There, Yeti ' quest. See '37) Mechanical Yeti' further down for a walkthrough of this quest.

It requires the following supplies to make:-

4x Ice Thistle E'ko, 4x Thorium Widget, 2x Globe of Water, 2x Truesilver Transformer and 1x Gold Power Core

The Ice Thistle E'ko can only be obtained by people on the Cache of Mau'ari quest from Witch Doctor Mau'ari in Everlook in Winterspring, which at the time of writing this Guide is only given out to Horde characters. I'm assuming that is an error and will be fixed later, as Witch Doctor Mau'ari was moved from Orgrimmar to Everlook with the patch that introduced this pet (1.9).

Despite being a Quest Item the Ice Thistle E'ko is tradable however (also since Patch 1.9), so it is still possible for Alliance Engineers to obtain it through the Neutral Auction Houses.

The completed Tranquil Mechanical Yeti can also be traded across factions in the same manner.

New Info: As of Patch 1.9.3, the schematic now requires 1x Cured Rugged Leather instead of 4x Ice Thistle E'ko.

5) Green Wing Macaw

This is a dropped non-combat pet.

It is a rare-ish drop from Defias Pirates on the ship at the bottom of the Deadmines, an instance found inside a building at Moonbrook in Westfall.

The Pirates themselves use these as a combat pet, and they'll merrily peck away at your head (if you're a Gnome, if you're a tall race you might want to wear a cup!) while the Pirates take a couple of swings at you and then run like cowardly dogs.

This was one of the first pets I got (the third, in fact, after the Hawk Owl above and Siamese Cat below), and it was getting this one that really put the thought of collecting them all into my head, thus radically altering the nature of the game for me...

BAD Polly! 8-)

6) Hyacinth Macaw

This is a dropped non-combat pet.

It is possibly the rarest dropped pet in the game, with a very low drop rate from the various Bloodsail pirates around Stranglethorn Vale.

I got this one fairly late compared to most of the rest. I'd been 60 for some timed before finally getting my hands on it. Only the Dark Whelpling came close to being as elusive as this!

It is very pretty though... the screenshot doesn't really do it justice, the purples and blues are very vibrant.

Well worth all the effort 8-)

7) Worg Pup

his is a quested non-combat pet. You need to be level 55 minimum to get the quest.

I have already written a Guide to getting this pet solo if you are a Druid or Rogue, which can be found here.

If you can't stealth to solo the quest for this pet, you can still do it in a single group (not a raid) using the directions in the above Guide.

Once I'd set myself on the path of collecting all the pets, this was one of the main ones that I really wanted. I've never been a fast leveller, I get far to easily distracted (e.g. going off to collect loads of pets instead!), but as I got close to 55 I suddenly found myself quite focused on that final push 8-)

Then I couldn't *quite* squeeze between two orcs at 55, and made the leap to 56 in record time, which turned out to be just barely enough 8-)

8) Mechanical Squirrel

This is an Engineer-made non-combat pet, however is does not require any Engineering skill to use, and so can be used by anyone.

The schematic is dropped, not bought from a vendor, randomly by various level 10 - 20 mobs. It requires an Engineering skill of 75 to make.

It requires the following supplies to make:-

1x Copper Modulator, 1x Handful of Copper Bolts, 1x Copper Bar and 2x Malachite

One of the main things that has impressed me with the Pets is the level of detail on them. Even though this little guy is tiny, he's beautifully detailed. Kudos to the art department!

9) Prairie Dog

This is a bought non-combat pet.

It is sold by Halpa in Thunder Bluff for 50s.

Another tiny pet, in fact this is the smallest of them all, and again he's quite detailed.

All the pets are animated, they flap about or sniff the air etc, but this is one of my favourites... he looks to either side of himself, and then licks his paws and washes his face and behind his ears. Uber cute! 8-)

The vendor for this one can be quite hard to find... From the base of the spiral totem in Thunder Bluff, go behind the building with the bridge to the Hunter Rise, and there's a path up the cliff. Head left up there, and Halpa's behind a tent.

10) Compact Harvest Reaper

This is an Engineer-made Combat pet. It cannot be used by non-Engineers.

You need to be level 30 and have 175 Engineering skill to make AND USE this pet. It requires the following supplies to make:-

2x Iron Strut, 1x Bronze Framework, 2x Gyrochronatom and 4x Heavy Leather.

It is a one-shot pet, so once summoned it will last 10 minutes (unless it dies first) and then it's used up and you have to make a new one. It is level 35.

They're not Unique though, so you can carry several around, and they stack which is handy.

I used a fairly large screenshot for this guy, because he's just such a marvellous model.

Unlike the re-usable Engineered Combat Pets like the Mechanical Dragonling line, some of the one-shot Pets can be looted once they die, and will return some of the materials used in their making, and occasionally other components too.

This guy is one such Pet, so don't just run off and leave him when he finally keels over!

11) Mechanical Greench

This is a level 58 Combat Pet.

It was obtained from the level 40 'Ticking Present' under the tree as part of the Winter's Veil celebrations.

It was Bind on Pickup, 3 charges, and 10 days duration.

Sadly, he is no longer with us, as his 10 days ran out. He might re-appear next Winter's Veil, but until then this pet cannot be obtained. If you have an unopened Ticking Present in the bank then he will last 10 days from when you take him out, but he cannot be traded to others.

12) Snowshoe Rabbit

This is a bought non-combat pet.

It is sold by Yarlyn Amberstill in Dun Morogh for 20s, and is a limited supply.

This is the cheapest bought pet in the game, but very cute 8-)

The vendor is the little girl running around at the Amberstill Ranch in Dun Morogh.

Another cute animation, this one twitches his nose and washes his face too 8-)

13) Tiny Reindeer

This is another Winter's Veil pet, this time a non-combat one.

It is summoned by the Jingling Bell, which could be found in the presents under the tree, and requires one Snowball to summon.

Although the pet itself has no limitations on when it can be used (it doesn't expire like the Mechanical Greench does), Snowballs can only be bought or picked up during the Winter's Veil period. However they are tradable, and can be made by Engineers with a Snowmaster 9000 (only one per day though), so it is still possible to obtain them throughout the year.

Although this pet can no longer be obtained from under the tree (it may be back next year though), it is Bind on Use not on Pickup, and it might therefore still be possible to obtain one from a player who has not equipped theirs.

It is the same model used for the festive reindeer mount.

14) Cockroach

This is a bought non-combat pet.

It is sold by Jeremiah Payson in Undercity for 50s.

It is one of the more active pets, flittering and flying about around you.

It's another very small pet, and was quite hard to get a usable screenshot of.

15) Prairie Chicken

This is a quested non-combat pet. It is one of two Alliance-only pet quests.

Step 1 is nice and silly... you have to find a chicken (they're all over Human-inhabited areas), target it and do the /Chicken emote at it... often many many times, so I'd recommend making a macro and just hammering away!

Eventually, your chosen chicken will stop and face you, and you'll see the words 'Chicken looks up at you quizzically. Maybe you should inspect it.' Wait a couple of seconds and the chicken's name will turn green. At this point right click the chicken and take the quest. You have to be careful here, because it doesn't stay there for long, and if you right-click it when it doesn't have the quest you will attack and kill the chicken. You meanie!
Chicken QuestOnce you've taken the quest, called 'Cluck!', you have to go and buy some Special Chicken Feed, which is only sold by Farmer Saldean at Saldean's Farm in Westfall for 25 copper.

Once you have the Special Chicken Feed, return to your befriended chicken and /cheer at him. He will then show up the 'Quest to complete' yellow . Right click him and click Complete Quest. He will lay a Chicken Egg, which you open up to get your pet.

One final note here... as you have to buy the feed from Farmer Saldean, it is a handy time-saver to do the quest at one of the many chickens that roam his farm. You can also buy the feed first and do all the at-chicken steps together.

As I mentioned, this is an Alliance-only quest. While the chickens will react to Horde characters, they change to Alliance-friendly and so won't give out the quest. If there is a nearby Horde guard (if you try a chicken in Brill, for example) the guard will see the chicken change to Alliance and rush over and kill it. The meanie!

As well as the half hour and several hundred emotes it can take to get your chicken to react, there is one other major annoyance with this quest... I can pretty much guarantee that some idiot will see you doing it, and think it's funny to come over and kill your chicken. Why Who knows...

16) Red Winter's Little Helper

Another Winter's Veil non-combat pet.

It is summoned by the Red Helper Box, which could be found in the presents under the tree.

There are two types of these, Red and Green. The Red one is a female, and the Green one is a male (see below).

Like the Tiny Reindeer, they require a Snowball to summon, otherwise have no restrictions, and are tradable until first used.

These looked particularly good when combined with the effect from the Winter Wondervolt machines that were about over the holidays, as those turned you into a Gnome in a red or green Greatfather Winter outfit just like the Helpers wear, so you could run about with your very own little Mini-Me clone 8-)

It's the little touches like that that really make me giggle, and everyone that knows me use words like 'sad' 8-)

I'm already looking forward to next year!

17) Green Winter's Little Helper

Another Winter's Veil non-combat pet.

It is summoned by the Green Helper Box, which could be found in the presents under the tree.

There are two types of these, Red and Green. The Red one is a female (see above), and the Green one is a male.

Like the Tiny Reindeer, they require a Snowball to summon, otherwise have no restrictions, and are tradable until first used.

Another example of the lovely detail even the tiniest models have on them, and the amazing effort Blizzard have put into this game, something us players all too often fail to fully appreciate.

It's easy enough to pick faults in things if you look hard enough, but next time you think 'Bah, this sucks!' just stop and look at all the fantastic little touches all around you. It won't matter where you are, they're everywhere! I find it soon restores perspective...

Of course, we'd all have even better perspective if they made Gnomes puntable! 8-)

Just something for you to mull over, Blizzard...

18) Ancona Chicken

This is a bought non-combat pet.

It is sold by Magus Tirth in Thousand Needles (at the Racetrack in Shimmering Flats) for 1g.

More expensive than the pets bought in or near the starting cities, especially when the Prairie Chicken only costs 25 copper (for the Special Chicken Feed), but I do like the grey colouring on this one.

This one is the Imperial Officer chicken, compared to the Storm Trooper of the Prairie one! 8-)

Now if only there was a Darth Chicken! Oh well, I guess the next one down comes close... 8-)

19) Mechanical Chicken

This is a quested non-combat pet.

In order to get the final quest 'An OOX Of Your Own' which results in the chicken itself, you first need to do three other quests:-

OOX-09/HL Distress Beacon, OOX-17/TN Distress Beacon and OOX-22/FE Distress Beacon.

These take place in Hinterlands, Tanaris and Ferelas respectively, as shown by the two-letter code on the end. Killing random mobs in those three zones can result in a Distress Beacon dropping, each of which leads to a quest to escort an OOX Chicken to safety.

Once you've done all three quests, Oglethorpe Obnoticus in Booty Bay in Stranglethorn Vale will give you your Mechanical Chicken.

20) Jubling

This is a quested non-combat pet.

The quest is 'Spawn of Jubjub' and is given out by Morja at the Darkmoon Faire.

In order to complete the quest, you need two mugs of Dark Iron Ale from the Bar in Blackrock Depths. These can be bought from the barman (Plugger Spazzring) or picked up from the table (WARNING: Picking up more than two mugs will agro the bar. This is Bad! 8-) ). The mugs are tradable, so if you can't get them yourself you can have another player get them for you.

Once you have the mugs, target Morja and throw one down. Her missing pet frog Jubjub will come back to drink it. At this point you can hand her the second mug and you will receive 'An Unhatched Jubling Egg'.

It takes 7 days for the egg to hatch, at which point you then have your pet. The egg becomes rather cutely named 'A Jubling's Tiny Home' 8-)

This is a fairly large pet compared to many, and makes noises when you click it.

21) Tree Frog

This is a bought non-combat pet.

It is sold by Frik at the Darkmoon Faire for 1g.

He's the little Orc boy running around chasing a frog. He can be quite hard to catch, so good luck!

All the Frog and Toad pets have rather a nice 'fly-catching' animation, where a fly will suddenly appear and buzz around them, and they'll shoot their tongue out and catch it. You can see this little chap's tongue poking out in the top screenshot of all the pets.

22) Wood Frog

This is a bought non-combat pet.

It is sold by Frik at the Darkmoon Faire for 1g, and is a limited supply.

It uses the same model as the Engineer-made 'Lifelike Mechanical Toad' below.

I still had to have both though, as my own personal collecting criteria includes all limited stock and made pets 8-)

23) Lifelike Mechanical Toad

This is an Engineer-made non-combat pet, however is does not require any Engineering skill to use, and so can be used by anyone.

The schematic is dropped, not bought from a vendor, randomly by various high 40s to low 50s mobs. It requires an Engineering skill of 265 to make.

It requires the following supplies to make:-

1x Living Essence, 4x Thorium Widget, 1x Gold Power Core and 1x Rugged Leather

It uses the same model as the Wood Frog bought from the Darkmoon Faire above.

24) Siamese Cat

This is a dropped non-combat pet.

It is a fairly common drop from Cookie on the ship at the bottom of the Deadmines, an instance found inside a building at Moonbrook in Westfall.

This is a fairly popular pet amongst my friends. Any new characters we make will usually take a trip down to see Cookie fairly early on, in the hopes of picking one of these up.

This was the first dropped pet I ever got, and I was delighted with it. It is very cute indeed, and easily my favourite of all the cat models.

25) Black Tabby

This is a dropped non-combat pet.

It is dropped fairly commonly by Dalaran Spellscribe in Ambermill in Silverpine Forest. He is a rare-ish spawn in either of the two shacks to the sides of the main building.

Dalaran Spellscribe is on Alliance faction, so only Horde players can actually kill him to get this pet, however it is tradable until first used, and so may be passed to an Alliance character via the Neutral Auction Houses.

This cat was originally called the 'Maine Coon', but the name was changed after complaints over the negative connotations the word 'coon' could have.

26) White Kitten

This is a bought non-combat pet.

It is sold by Lil Timmy in Stormwind City for 60s, and is a limited supply.

Lil Timmy wanders around the canals by Cathedral Square, and through the Square itself.

Being a kitten, this pet is slightly smaller than the other cat pets.

27) Tiny Snowman

The last of the Winter's Veil pets.

It is summoned by the Snowman Kit, which could be found under the tree, and requires a Snowball to summon.

As with the other non-combat Winter's Veil pets, it is tradable until first used, so might still be available from other players.

This pet is somewhat unique in that it won't follow you around, it will stay where you placed it.

It is, however, highly animated, and will dance and jig about, doffing his top hat and shading his eyes to peer off into the distance.

As with the Winter's Little Helpers, you could also do the Mini-Me clone trick with these, as one of the Winter's Veil quests resulted in the Winter Veil Disguise Kit, which turned you into a large snowman too 8-)

You couldn't move (although it did have a 'twist' animation if you did /dance), but still looked great sat there with your little 'baby' next to you 8-)

28) Dark Whelpling

This is a dropped non-combat pet.

It is dropped very rarely by Scalding Whelps in the Badlands and Searing Whelps in Dustwallow Marsh.

On average, it's about a 1 in 3000 drop rate.

Originally this was called the Tiny Black Whelpling, I'm not sure why the name was changed.

I spent a loooooong time looking for this. In fact, I spent the best part of 12 levels looking for it. I was level 36 when I first went to the Badlands in search of it (which made the level 43 ones a bit of a challenge, to say the least! 8-) ), and level 48 when it finally dropped. At least 50% of the XP for each level came exclusively from Scalding Whelplings, and probably 70% of the total XP for the whole range.

One quick note on Drop Rates and Statistics... I constantly see in the comments on Thottbot and Allakhazam etc people saying 'The drop rate of 1 in 10 is wrong, it took me 15 goes!' or 'This isn't rare at all, I got mine on the first kill!'
Statistics doesn't work like that. Every single kill has exactly the same chance of dropping the item (let's say 1 in 10), regardless of all the previous kills. Just because you've killed it 9 times already doesn't mean it will drop on the 10th kill, that kill still has a 1 in 10 chance. If it took 15 goes, you were just unlucky. If you got it first time, you got 1 in 10 lucky. Neither means the quoted rate is wrong, it is simply the average of a huge number of samples, and therefore pretty accurate.

29) Tiny Crimson Whelpling

This is a dropped non-combat pet.

It is dropped very rarely by Red Whelps, Crimson Whelps and Flamesnorting Whelps in Wetlands.

On average, it's about a 1 in 2000 drop rate.

I actually got pretty lucky with mine...

I'd gone off to try to get one, and I'd not been there 5 minutes when suddenly the place seemed flooded with people doing the same, and Whelps were being slaughtered by the bucketload and getting hard to come by. Then I spotted one left alive in a clump of corpses, obviously missed by the others, so I trotted over and smacked it one, and sure enough there was my pet! 8-) Only took me around 50 kills for it, obviously making up for the nightmare time with the Dark Whelpling!

BTW, still not believe me about the Drop Rates / Stats thing Toss a coin! If we assume a 1 in 2 chance at heads and tails, and you get a heads first, that means the next toss must be a tails, right Nope, wrong, because all the previous tosses have no bearing on the current one. It could take another 10 tosses to get a tails. Same thing with drop rates!

30) Tiny Emerald Whelpling

This is a dropped non-combat pet.

It is dropped very rarely by Dreaming Whelps in Swamp of Sorrows.

On average, it's about a 1 in 2000 drop rate.

Although it's only the Dreaming Whelps that can drop this pet, you still need to kill the Adolescent Whelps in the area too, because when either of them repop they can do so as either a Dreaming or an Adolescent.

It took me a fair while to get mine to drop, several days of playing, but I probably still came in just under the average drop rate, so yay me!

Overall, across all three Whelplings, I probably averaged the correct number of kills, the massive number of Scalding Whelps easily offsetting the lucky kill on the Crimson.

Again, these are pets with a nice animation. As well as flapping about, they also look behind them and spin round now and then, in a 'chasing-the-tail' kind of way.

31) Sprite Darter Hatchling

This is a quested non-combat pet.

It is the other faction-limited pet. The quests are only available to Alliance characters, there is no way for Horde characters to get this pet.

As these are a fairly complex series of quests to get this pet, I have written up a separate guide here.

This is one of the cutest pets in the game, and one of my favourite series of quests as well.

It is the only pet that you 'adopt' as opposed to buying or being given as a reward 8-)

Having helped rescue some adult Sprite Darters captured by the evil Taurens, you are given an orphaned egg to look after, and have to go through several quests in order to be ready and help it hatch into a healthy baby. The final step is even called 'Becoming A Parent' 8-)

This is the pet that is mostly responsible for my writing this guide, as every time I've posted the screenshot of all my pets someone has always asked 'What's that fairie dragon one, and how do I get it '

32) Pet Bombling

This is an Engineer-made non-combat pet. You have to be a Goblin Engineer to both make and use this pet.

The schematic is obtained as a possible reward for renewing your Goblin Engineering membership. In order to do so, you must first destroy your old membership card, then buy a new one for 2g from a Gnomish Engineer. You can do this as many times as you like. Your random reward will arrive in the mail 24 hours later, and might rarely contain the plans for this pet.

The schematic and the pet are both Bind on Pickup, so you cannot trade either. Characters that have previously chosen Gnomish Engineering cannot subsequently learn Goblin Engineering, even if you forget Engineering and start again from scratch, and so will never be able to get this pet.

It requires the following supplies to make:-

1x Big Iron Bomb, 1x Heart of Fire, 1x Fused Wiring and 6x Mithril Bar

It clanks as it follows you about, and is the little brother of the explosive 'combat pet' summoned by the Goblin Bomb Dispenser (see later).

33) Smolderweb Hatchling

Smolderweb Hatchling this is a quested non-combat pet. One of the creepier pets you can get!

I have already written a Guide to getting this pet solo if you are a Druid or Rogue, which can be found here. This is the same Guide as the Worg Pup, as they are very similar. The specific details for this quest are at the bottom.

If you can't stealth to solo the quest for this pet, you can still do it in a single group (not a raid) using the directions in the above Guide.

BTW, having previously done the quest and got this pe
