@Dukrous"Do you need the Pandaren for melee dps? Does Lil KT give you a super buff against Naxx bosses? No. You don't need it. The day blizzard starts offering high level weapons for cash I'll riot alongside everyone here. For this? I paid my $20 happily."Just because you value raiding more than pets doesn't mean others do. You say "pets are okay but raiding gear isn't" specifically because you raid. But many of us are pet fiends, and this is $20 we have to spend to continue collecting pets in WoW. We don't love the pets because they give buffs(it doesn't always have to be about raid buffs you know), but because they look so good and are unique and unattainable in-game. And these 2 pets count for achievements, which is a $20 that achievement hunters have to buy, especially once they add a "150 pets" achievement. The guy who bought 2 pets on Blizzard's store will have a 2 pet head start on that race to 150 pets.Just imagine it from the perspective of the "pet heads". We love pets, you love raiding. What if you could buy iLevel 264 Icecrown Citadel loot that counted towards Icecrown Citadel achievements? Would you consider that fair that people could buy their way through some of the lesser achievements? Sure microtransaction stuff is okay when it doesn't affect stuff you care about, but what about if it did affect the stuff you cared about? Would it still be okay?And just to prove I'm not the big bad man here like yesterday, I will say I'd love for Blizz to sell the Collector's Edition pets on the Blizzard store. You already have to spend money to get them(buy the Collector's Edition for each pet), so why not simply put them on the Blizzard store and save us having to trying to find a copy of the Collector's Edition? I can think of a lot of late comers to WoW who would love that Zergling Pet.
