----------
Traveling the world of Azeroth is always more enjoyable with a little friend by your side. Thus, World of Warcraft allows players to summon a vanity pet (also called a non-combat (NC) pet) for a little extra company. This critter will cheerfully follow you wherever your travels take you.

This guide answers common questions for those new to NC pets. It also provides a complete bestiary (a work-in-progress) for all of the pet enthusiasts out there. So if you're looking for the perfect traveling companion to accentuate your character, you've come to the right place!

III. AUTHOR'S NOTE



I. Q & A


Q: What do vanity pets actually do?
A: Vanity pets will loyally follow you around while you are traveling by foot or mount, regardless of your speed. They'll follow you anywhere, indoors or out, dangerous or otherwise, but they retreat to their cages when you hop a flight (even if the pet can fly).

At this time, only one vanity pet provides a small buff (or in this case, a debuff) when summoned. See Disgusting Oozling for details.

Q: Where can I get a vanity pet?
A: Vendors, drops, quest rewards, engineering recipes, auction houses, and through special promotions by Blizzard. This guide provides the location of drops and vendors for every known vanity pet. It also explains which pets can be obtained through what quests. Many vanity pets can be purchased through the auction house (AH), but prices greatly vary.

Q: Is there a level requirement for owning a vanity pet?
A: No, however some quests with NC pet rewards will be unavailable to you until you reach an appropriate level.

Q: Can I sell my vanity pet to another player?
A: Many vanity pets are BoP (soulbound on pickup). Others are BoU (soulbound when used). If you haven't summoned the pet, you can sell it or trade it to other players (assuming it was not a BoP item). Most unwanted soulbound pets can be sold to a vendor.

Q: How many vanity pets can I own?
A: You can own as many vanity pets as you wish, but you may only have one active at a time.

Q: Can warlocks and hunters have a non-combat pet active while their combat pet is summoned?
A: Yes. This allows hunters and warlocks to travel the world with their own little posse in tow. Fo' shizzle.

Q: Can I name my vanity pet?
A: Not at this time. But maybe someday... (pretty please Blizzard?)

Q: Do I have to feed my vanity pet?
A: No. Amazingly, these little guys keep on trucking without a drop of water or an ounce of food. They are the envy of all hunters.

Q: Are vanity pets class or faction specific?
A: For the most part, no. Any class or faction can summon any pet. However, some BoP quest reward vanity pets are only available to one faction or another, preventing the opposing faction from ever obtaining that pet. Furthermore, certain mechanical pets are BoP and can only be used by the engineers who build them.

Q: Can my vanity pet be killed?
A: Yes and no. They can't be killed by other players and mobs directly, but they can be fried by some area-of-effect spells and effects. You want that whelpling regular or extra crispy?

----------

AUTHOR'S NOTE

In real life, I love all kinds of animals. I'm thrilled that the developers of WoW have provided a way for players to enjoy some fantastic and wonderful pets in-game. No, they don't do anything extraordinary. But they do provide ambiance and fun. A rogue with a snake in tow; a moonkin with an owl close behind; a female warlock accompanied by a black cat; a hunter with his trusty "hunting" worg pup. When coupled with certain races, classes or genders, many pets provide a "coolness" factor that can't be reproduced by any other means.

So if you have yet to embrace a little critter of your own, check out the bestiary and discover the perfect pet for your toon!
