It was just a quick sentence that went by almost completely unnoticed, flew totally under the radar. But in an interview which WoW
lead designer Jeff Kaplan
gave to WoW Vault
, he mentioned a heretofore unknown achievement reward coming up in Wrath
that will definitely pass the smell test.
Current Wrath beta testers
may have been able to peruse the approximately 500 achievements
in the current build, but Kaplan has indicated that by the final release there will be 600-700 achievements
for players to attempt. One of these achievements, Kaplan
said, can be acquired by collecting pets. It seems that if you collect all the available pets in the game -- and I'm not sure if he meant tameable pets
or collectible/vanity pets or both -- you will be granted a unique pet in the form of a skunk called Stinker. For my two "scents," I do love me some cute vanity pets
, but I'm really glad that WoW
doesn't come in a scratch-n-sniff version or with smell-o-vision.
So now it's time for you to earn a WoW Insider
achievement! Anyone under the age of thirty who can guess the name of the character in the picture will get this achievement: "Le kittee quel terriblay odeur!!"
