Still time to get your pet bear and achievement


There's still time to get your non-combat baby polar bear pet and your achievement celebrating the 4th anniversary of the World of Warcraft. All you have to do is log into the game and open up your mail. Many folks thought that the achievement would only trigger if you logged on yesterday, however that doesn't appear to be the case.

People are calling the polar bear pet the "cutest thing in-game." The reaction of "Awwww!!!" can be heard throughout guild chats everywhere. And for those special/cool/nerdy enough, you can even have a polar bear non-combat pet next to a polar bear hunter pet next to a BlizzCon polar bear mount next to a regular polar bear mount.

If you get to have that much polar bear love in one screenshot, you get the achievement "Threat Down: Polar Bears" and are awarded the title "Colbert." The t is silent, of course.

Okay... maybe we're kidding about the title, but it's still cool to be able to do that.

Fishing up Chuck


If Mr. Pinchy didn't revive the concept of fishing for you, sending you out with your rod, your bait and your bags, then maybe Chuck will.

Aikiwoce, after completing the new fishing daily quest on the PTRs, was awarded with Chuck's Bucket. What does this odd little bucket do?

Why, it summons Chuck the baby crocolisk of course! For those of you pet collectors out there, you'd best start leveling your fishing now! Even if you're not an avid collector, Chuck is the perfect toothy reptilian companion. Besides, any pet borne from Chuck Norris is a must-have. /wink

Aikiwoce was kind enough to forward us a screenshot; thanks Aikiwoce!

Of course, Chuck isn't the only mini pet making its debut through patch 2.4. If you want something a little less slimy and a bit more fiery, then the new phoenix pet might make your "to farm" list for after the patch.

2.4: The phoenix

Non-combat pet fans thought that patch 2.3 was a blessing, bringing us the Tiny Spore Bat, for only 30 glowcaps and exalted reputation with Sporeggar, and the beautiful and rare Azure Whelpling. As it followed on the heels of Brewfest's Wolpertinger and Hallow's End's Sinister Squashling, collectors were feeling pretty peachy.

Now, as patch 2.4 lurks around the corner, two more prizes for mini pet fans loom. As we've mentioned, collectors will now have their long-awaited vanity pet bag, which Breanni of warcraftpets.com theorizes will hold between 20 and 28 mini pets!

Despite my excitement over the new bag, I have to say that I am at least equally enthused about the new phoenix mini pet. There's just something magical about the fiery little guy that I can't resist. Similar to the elusive epic flying phoenix mount, I can't help but want one.

At this time, very little is known about where this pet drops or what the drop rate could be. In fact, it might turn out to be a faction reward, much like the Tiny Spore Bat.

When patch 2.4 hits, will you be out farming reputation or mobs for your very own phoenix, or are you more excited about other aspects of the patch?
