So, I’d heard they were releasing the Gryphon and Windrider pets in the pet store and I was a little miffed, hoping maybe they’d be achievement rewards or something, but oh well, £10 per pet is okay I guess. I’d also heard they were releasing plushie versions with the vanity pets. I thought well that’s cool for people who want the plushies. I do like plushies, don’t get me wrong, I have a few dotted around the place, but I don’t particularly like these ones. They don’t look very soft, big, I don’t really care too much about them. Not to worry I don’t need to buy them right?
When I went to log in last night to check my auctions, on the news page I saw they were now available from the EU Blizzard store. I clicked the link and had a look and.. OH WTF. The plushies are there… the pets aren’t. Looks like if you want to buy the ingame vanity pets, you have to buy the plushies. I’m sure I’m not the only one who doesn’t particularly care about the plushies but would love the vanity pets, or can’t afford them for that matter! In doing this, I’m pretty sure Blizzard have lost a few sales /golfclap. Not impressed, Blizzard.
