The 20 Days of World of Warcraft: Day Seven

Favorite companion non-combat pet?

Again, another one that is no contest. My favorite non-combat pet is definitely the Pandaren Monk. I actually only got this pet a few days ago (thank you, Spellpower), but I already knew it would be my favorite just from seeing others with them. The karate moves and the little Hee-yah's make him really unique.

If I got to pick the next playable race and class I would definitely pick the Pandaren for race and the Monk for class. I know that it will never happen though, since China will not allow sales of the game if it includes pandas.

If we exclude the pets that can be bought at the Blizzard Store, then next on my list would be the Sprite Darter Hatchling, which apparently is no longer obtainable since the quest is gone.


  1. I always loved the sprite darters. Also because a lot of people hadn't discovered that questline to get it :) so it made the pet rather unique.

  2. I'm not in game til Cataclysm, but oh noes, they removed the sprite darter questline? Darn I still have a couple of alts without it..

    I wonder if it's still available to horde as a tiny drop chance pet?

  3. Exactly, Antlergirl. It's beautiful and unique!

    To be honest, Issy. I haven't actually been over there to see for myself yet, but this is the rumor I have heard.

  4. Oh no, the sprite darter may be gone? I don't know if I have it on my warlock yet.. I hope I do, or I won't forgive myself if I missed getting it! I know I have it on a couple of other characters, but would be a shame not to have it on my now-main.

    The pandaren monk looks adorable. I don't have any of the pets from the store, but there's several I'm definitely drooling over :)

  5. Per Wowhead, the quest is definitely gone. For you Hordies out there, it also no longer drops from Sprite Darter mobs, per Wowhead again.

    RIP Sprite Darter Hatchling. You will be missed.

  6. I love the Pandaren Monk maybe I'll put him on my Christmas wish list. In game pets my favorite would be between Sprite Darter and Worg Pup, I'm fond of him as he was my first and the closest thing I could get to a dog at the time!

  7. Awww. I hope you Santa brings you one. I've actually never gotten the Worg Pup. I'll have to see if I can go get him.
