Another Blizzcon has come and gone, and a great many exciting announcements have been made. For the pet community, this included two new pets: the Anima Wyrmling & Dottie!
The Anima Wyrmling is the pet players will receive as part of the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands pre-order in the 'Epic Edition', or the highest tier of pre-order.
- Slot 1: Siphon Life / Gale Slash
- Slot 2: Amplify Magic / Arcane Storm
- Slot 3: Portal / Phase Shift
Dottie the baby alpaca will be this year's charity pet, and her sales will contribute to two charities: Make-A-Wish Foundation & WE.org
Though we don't know any of Dottie's particulars, like her abilities or family (Probably Critter, maybe Beast), we do know from Jeremy Feasel, a.k.a. Muffinus, that she has an adorable animation where she bounces in a circle
Hopefully they'll continue the pet & plushie trend, that way we can add an adorable alpaca in-game and IRL.
On top of that, we got a glimpse into some of the Shadowlands zones and Covenants, and there are exciting new models that could translate very well into pets for us in the next expansion. Only time will tell, but I'm looking forward to what Shadowlands will bring to us pet-wise.
Well, that's all for now! We hope you all had a great Blizzcon, either in Anaheim or from the comfort of your home, and until next time: Happy Battling!
