Inspired by Swenyola’s post on her top ten companion pets, even when I didn’t think I intended returning to WoW, I couldn’t resist drawing up a list of mine.
1. Bean – My baby Hopling, named after Mr Harpy’s rogue as they share certain characteristics.
2. Euphyley – My Cenarion Hatchling, named after Euphyley of WoW Rare Spawns fame who very kindly gifted her to me.
3. Pyewacket – My Feline Familiar. You can’t go wrong with a Cat in Hat, especially one who can fly on his very own broom.
4. Cobweb – The Giant Bone Spider
5. Ichabod – The Sinister Squashling
6. Billy – Summit Kid
7. Charming – The Swamp Croaker
8. Tattiebogle – Tiny Harvester
9. The Sea Pony – For a period pet was beginning to be my white whale. I fished and I fished and I fished but got nothing by flotsam and jetsam. Of course when I finally reeled one in, I got another one in quick succession.
10. Mataoka – The Imperial Moth
I may have gone to 11 but I couldn’t decide who to cut in order to add Cecy, so as she’s not a battle pet, I decided she could drift happily on the end.
11. Cecy – The Darkmoon Balloon
