Is that how you spell plushies? I hope so. The spell checker doesn’t recognize it. Of course, it doesn’t recognize strategery either…oh, wait… Anyway, on to the point! Being the WoW vanity pet fanatic that I am, I have to make mention of this little news item that appears on the official World of Warcraft site yesterday. At Blizzard’s online store, you can already purchase in-game vanity pets, but this time they’re shaking things up a bit and doing something different. They have a new line of plushies that will be arriving at the store soon. Each plush comes with a code for a matching in-game vanity pet, bound to whichever account you give it to.
This is kind of a nice addition to the store, however you feel about the whole “spending real money for in-game items” debate. The pets are a Wind Rider Cub and a Gryphon Hatchling. I do expect more in the future where those come from, as well. So, keep an eye on the Blizzard store and the WoW homepage to see when these items become available so you can snatch yours up. I know I will be.
