WoW Companion Pets

(Sorry about all the WoW related posts for the non-players who read this)

One of the things I like best about WoW is all the companion pets. These are pets that follow you around and are just for looks. Some of these are easier to get than others. There are ones that you buy from the vendors and ones that are quest rewards and ones that drop from mobs and so on. The best site on these pets is Warcraft Pets. Blizzard even put a pet items vendor in the game that is the same as the site’s creator’s character.

Right now I have about 41 pets. After collecting 50 pets, you get a skunk pet from the collect 50 pets achievement. I have all of the non-reputation-required vendor pets, and several dropped pets and quest reward pets. You can see my collection at the Warcraft Pets site.

My rarest pet is the Dark Whelping. It’s a 1 in 1,000 drop rate. I didn’t actually acquire this myself…Joe did and gave it to me as a surprise gift.
