Hoarders: Azeroth Edition - Miscfit Pets

Welcome one and all to the final installment of Mini Pet Month! This week Hoarders: Azeroth Edition will be showcasing all of the pets that are acquired though random and not necessarily in game means.


These miscfit...err misfit...pets don't really have an epic tale to tell, unless of course you consider feats of strength, pure RNG luck, being at the right place at the right time, having the right professions in game, or having a sizable wallet to be an epic situation. Then I suppose the story of acquisition told would solely belong to the owner of the pet, and not the general populous.

Here is your list of miscellaneous pets that are acquired by means other than what was originally implemented within each expansion pack.

I'd really like to take a moment to recognize a few sites that enabled me to put together all of these companion lists, as well as point you in the direction of where you can find some of these purchasable pets (if your wallet allows you to partake in some of this RL bound collecting that is).

Warcraft Pets - The Vanity Pets index on this site was incredibly valuable with putting this together. Without it, it would have taken me months to compose a complete list. Warcraftpets.com is pretty good about keeping up to date on the latest and greatest pet editions to the game, and it allows you to keep a profile of all the pets you have/have yet to collect. I highly recommend this site for all pet collectors.
Wowhead - Not only is this my go-to site for all of the links within these lists, Wowhead's comment section is a wealth of information (usually). If you don't find the information you seek right off the bat while looking at the item in question, check the comments section. Usually you can find the answers you seek there.
MMO-Champion - This is my source for all things data-mined and PTR. If you don't already check MMO Champ on a regular basis, it may be something for you to look into.
Blizzard Store - Head on over to the Blizzard Store in order to purchase a variety of virtual pets. Some even come with plushies!
World of Warcraft Trading Card Game - This is the source for those wonderful TGC loot cards that any collector would love to get their hands on. If your luck is poor at obtaining the illusive loot cards via buying packets, you can always try your hand at getting the item of your desires through eBay.

Many thanks to these sites for all of the hard work that has been put out. Without your contributions this list would probably have never been made and all of us collectors would be left in the dark. /salute!


That is all for this month's theme. Next week we'll move onto a different collection for you all to consider getting interested in. Until then, happy hoarding hoarders!

  5. Thinking of getting rich in World of Warcraft?

    Consider Installing the TYCOON GOLD ADDON.

    The addon will automatically find the most profitable gold making methods in the game, in seconds.
