Although pet battling hasn’t engaged me very deeply — my lead trio hasn’t even made it to level 25 yet, making the accomplishment of my very minimal pet battle goals of acquiring that stylish Safari Hat and leveling at least one pet of each family to 25 still a long way off — I do like a good lists meme.
I’m going to do a bit of a twist on the topic; choosing my ten favorites of the pets I’ve already collected was too hard, so I’m going to list the ten pet models I don’t have yet that I’m most interested in acquiring instead.
1) Dragon Whelps — these little guys are so cute that I think they should be the next plushie in the Blizzard store. That hasn’t happened yet, so I’ve made my own.
4) Bucktooth Flapper/Thundertail Flapper
5) Hedgehog — I don’t plan to tame a large porcupine with my hunter, but I’d like to have a little one as part of my battle pet menagerie
6) Red Panda
7) Anubisath Idol
8) Qiraji Guardling
9) Unborn Val’kyr
10) Direhorn Runt — the minis of the other BIG creatures like the clefthoof, shardhorn, and direhorn are so adorable that I wonder, Why Oh Why isn’t there a mini kodo battle pet yet, eh? I’m not that excited about Gahz’rooki, but I’d totally be out there farming Kor’kron supplies for a mini kodo! I’d also love a mini zhevra battle pet, especially because the regular zhevras can’t be tamed as hunter pets.
