What’s adorable and reeks of fish?

If you guessed a pet baby murloc, then you’re right. For the lucky folks who attended BlizzCon (or the few willing to shell out $600 on eBay), there were a limited number of gift cards available. When you scratch off the gunk on the back, you get a code number which can then be brought to NPC’s in Ironforge or Orgrimmar. Upon entry of the code, you are rewarded with a lively and well-behaved little gurgler.

Pardon me for saying so, but they’re freaking precious. As someone who has acquired a menagerie of pets (horned owls, tabby cats, parrots) not counting my hunter’s actual pet, I’ve found little Murky to be my favorite. He sings, he dances, and you’ve never heard anything so cute as his little baby murloc sounds.

And thus, I have reinforced every stereotype about women who play hunters. *sigh*

    Lovely. Unfortunately, the number of people in Europe who attend E3, surprisingly enough isn’t very many.

    In fact, I know of one.

    Given the choice of:
    a) Spending $600 on plane tickets to attend E3.
    b) Spending $600 on eBay.

    … I’ll think I’ll go for:
    c) Spending $600 on my PS3.

    I of course mean Blizzcon … Not E3. It’s early, I haven’t had any coffee yet.

    There are three people on my server (alliance side) with a murky, two of which are in my guild. (I’m one of them).
    Murky is usually the only vanity pet you can get away with taking out in MC. He’s just too fun.

    Now why can’t my mechanical chicken sing and dance? What is it with that lame gnomish programing anyway?

    I’m so glad to hear that other people think they’re adorable too. I don’t feel nearly so bad anymore. :)
