Great news for companion pet collectors! Some of you may have noticed that some new versions of the old Lower Blackrock Spire quest reward pets Worg Pup and Smolderweb Hatchling showed up in one of the 4.0.6 PTR builds. However, Blizzard made no note of these items being made available in their patch notes (or anywhere else, for that matter).
Many players who never completed En-Ay-Es-Tee-Why or Kibler’s Exotic Pets were disappointed to find that these quest (and the pet rewards) were removed with Cataclysm. My druid, a Bloodsail Admiral, was unable to speak to the goblin NPC and therefore was missing the spider pet herself – until now!
It appears that these “new” companion pets were indeed added in 4.0.6!
