Maybe Celetial Dragon is just like last year's Spirit of Competition, for the Olympics.

I was thinking the same thing, actually.
Possibly, but the patch isnt due for a few more weeks in my guess and this pet really has nothing to do with the winter Olympics, but time will tell though. Looks awesome anyway!

This was my first reaction.It has the same model as the Olympic pet, and the stars possibly being in reference to the opening ceromony of the 2010 Winter Olympics.It may seem like a long shot, but I wouldn't say it wasn't possible.

It says "Essence of Competition" on mmo champion if you click on it. So I am thinking its an Olympic pet

@Creese5704: If you click the MMO Champion Steed link, it says the value is "Headless Horseman Mount"... So I don't know if the pet's 'value' indicator is really much to go on.

Yeah, it only makes sense as an Olympic pet because the Summer Olympics were in China, which, if you ask me, is a pretty poor reason.

"Maybe Celetial Dragon is just like LAST YEAR'S Spirit of Competition, for the Olympics."The Spirit of Competition was from the Beijing Summer Olympics, which was held in 2008, not 2009.

@Mike it could very well be an updated mount for headless horseman or a new mount that drops.@Mattimus not really, they could have did another dragon since they are cooler than making a pet moose or a moose mount.Either way regardless of how you get the pet I really hope its a reward of some kind or a purchase pet for the store and not a TCG pet that we will never get to see since they quit production of the TCG

Yeah I noticed that when I reread, but was too lazy to correct myself. So weird to think my Warlock's been max lvl that long, so I thought it was last year.
@ mike I would assume by the Headless Horsemen value it means it is a mount that functions in the same way. As in it changes its type depending on location.

@Creese I disagree about the moose being less cool than the celestial dragon. Put it in a Wassamatta U shirt and I'd have it out all the time. Of course, if you want a more violent pet, we could always go with a wolverine which makes a distinct *snikt* sound every now and then. :)

@Creese"@Mattimus not really, they could have did another dragon since they are cooler than making a pet moose or a moose mount."That statement is entirely subjective. I, for one, would LOVE a Mini-Moose. In fact, Mini-Moose was with me the whoooole time. Yep.

If that pet's for the olympics, well, I was hoping for something better.But I guess it'll make a nice constellation prize.

Complete LFD with 100 random people get a Perky Pug.In 3.3.3 there is a new random battleground tool, so I'm thinking something like complete 50/win 25 random battlegrounds get a reskinned "Spirit of Competition" pet achievement (and title?)
