Pre-MoP Pet Battles

You do NOT need Mists of Pandaria to have pet battles. You just need to have the right pets.

If you have Grunty the Murloc Marine (from Blizzcon 2009) and someone else has a Zergling (from the original WoW Collector’s Edition) the two will fight to the death.

The Clockwork Rocket Bots (Blue, purchased from vendors, or the original, from Winter’s Veil 2007) will fight each other regardless of color.

Perhaps rarest of all, though, are the Warbots that were given out through a Mt. Dew promotion in 2009. I don’t recall all of the specific details, but if you visited a certain website each day and voted for your favorite faction, you received some ‘fuel’ that could be put into the tank of your bot … either red or blue. Bots of opposite colors could fight each other.

So the other night, Zug is going through his bank and finds some fuel, so he asks if anyone else has any.  I guess he wanted bank space, and instead of just deleting it, he wanted to use it up. I’m sure you will all be completely surprised to find out that Arv had some fuel in his bank as well. I mean, you know, since he throws everything away and never plays with toys.

Oh, but wait … this is Arv we’re talking about. He can’t just have a normal sized pet. I swear he must have an entire bag dedicated to nothing but pet biscuits.

And of course, we can’t stop at just pet battles. We had to dig out a full collection of toys and have a party!

Well, no one can ever accuse SR members of standing around doing nothing, that’s for sure.

    Hehe, you should have zoomed out to get Ahmule in this pic as well. He would appear to be doing nothing while dominating the AH. Of course I am just assuming he was on, but its a safe bet.

  2. repgrind Says:

    Standing in front of the AH or in front of the mailbox never counts as doing nothing … at least not in SR. I was referring more to the people who afk in the middle of Cowtown on their purple birds.

    Van once 5.0 hits my zergling vs your marine!

    Or my mini diablo vs all!

  4. Arvash Says:

    Void storage needed to be here like yesterday, I have a lot of gear/weapons/tabards to offload to make room for more toys, which in turn makes room for more space to prospect ore. I have bags of max size in every slot, but I still need moar space.

  5. Arvash Says:

    Arv’s Ethereal Soul-Trader, Rocket Chicken, Spectral Tiger Cub


    Slice’s Zergling, Mini-Diablo, Magic Lamp

  6. slice213 Says:

    psh instead of lamp would be panda cub!

  7. repgrind Says:

    Pebble, Searing Scorchling, Frigid Frostling … the elemental team!

    Elwynn Lamb, Mr. Chilly, Speedy … the polymorph team!

    Little Fawn, Stinker, Snowshoe Rabbit … the Bambi team!

    Creepy Crate, Toxic Wasteling, Lil’ KT … the critter killers!

    If the actual battles are even half as much fun as coming up with team combos, then Blizz has hit a home run.

  8. Ado Says:

    Perky pug use but wipe!

  15. Arvash Says:

    What would be really cool is the ability to summon mounts for super attacks, like Espers in Final Fantasy III.

  16. repgrind Says:

    Shady: …..

    Shady: I summon the monstrosity known as Pretty pretty Prot Barbie! AKA Arvash!

    GTL: OMG the beauty, the horror….

  20. Sorak Says:

    You all have issues.

    That is all.

  21. repgrind Says:

    ^ Says the guy who designed the site banner.

    GTL can’t summon anything until he finishes his Angry Birds level.

    And Adoe gets a TKO when his helm takes on a life of its own and becomes a pet.
