I actually love this idea.I'm probably going to buy both of them :D
Blizz should make these unbound auctionable tokens ... go to the pet vendor in Dal and trade them in.Allowing a means to convert a RMT into game gold will help shut down the gold farmers.
Think I'll be getting one of those...
OMG OMG OMG must have both! d(*-*)b
Heh, I was browsing WoW Model Viewer last night and came upon the Lil' Lich. Checked Wowhead, no entry.What a coincidence!So... does this Panda mean that WoWs given up on China and their 'no panda' law?
Blizzard is actually late to the game on this. Just look at the Xbox Live Marketplace and how successful it has been. This was a very obvious path for them to take.
I so just bought Lil' KT as soon as I read this. Freaking awesome!
Payday cannot come fast enough, forget Christmas...
Note that only the Panda pet gives money to charity. The other one is just extra cash flow for Blizzard. I bought the Panda but probably won't buy any of the others they put in there.
First, the idea of having a lil KT to laugh at your PvP kills is awesome.Second.I have never understood why people complain that Blizzard tries to make money. If Blizzard didn't make money on WoW, they would stop supporting it and adding content. Blizzard is a business, not a philanthropy. Just because they charge a monthly fee doesn't mean they are "evil, money grubbing pigs" for looking for other sources of income. For example, I used to play one of those F2P online games, and to get anywhere near the perks that WoW has you had to spend much more than $15 a month. Double experience for resting $$, enchant your weapon $$, speed up your mount $$.I hope Blizzard continues to find non-core game stuff to offer to us. It makes the game more interesting and assures that Blizzard will be around to make WoW 2, "And you thought you had no life before".
I'm not really interested in either companion, but I have nothing against the practice of adding non-combat companions to the store. Maybe one of the later models will change my mind and it will be a "I must have that."I do applaud Blizzard for giving to the Make-a-Wish foundation, but for my own part if I want to donate I'll do so directly rather than buy a panda.
Here's hoping for the baby wyvern and core hound puppy.
