- the argent tournament companions (both horde and alliance pets)the list is possibly quite long.
- alliance and horde favored vendor pets (such as the many cat pets sold by an alliance NPC or the cockroach sold by a horde NPC)
- rare drops from zones and mobs (such as the dragon whelpings, but minus the onyxian whelpling)
- "specialty" pets (such as boss dropped companions like the phoenix hatchling, or the giant sewer rat which is fished up from dalaran sewers)
other than the obvious questions on my mind ('are there NEW pets on this loot list?' and 'what is the average droprate of a companion through call to arms?'), another burning question is... just which pets CANNOT be found within the satchel of exotic mysteries? because right now it almost feels as if nearly all vanity pets have a chance to drop from the call to arms' goodie bag. either that or many of the comments are reporting inaccurate information (this is something that will take time to confirm/deny).
i'm all for multiple ways to obtain certain pets. this seems a bit... ridiculous, however. it's almost as if blizzard decided to just dump ALL companions that are not quest rewards, TCG-related, or otherwise no longer available into the satchel of exotic mysteries. even vanity pets that originally required a certain reputation or special currency to purchase were not spared and seem to have found their way into the call to arms goodie bag. it's really quite bewildering.
let's not jump to too many conclusions yet, though. we won't know the accuracy of all the comments left on wowhead until more data has been gathered on the drops and droprates of the companions found within the satchel.
i'm definitely taken aback by this and i don't know whether to praise it, condemn it, turn a blind eye, or simply shrug and move on.
UPDATE: april 29 official hotfix notes - "The Satchel of Exotic Mysteries given to the member(s) of a class role eligible for Dungeon Finder: Call to Arms rewards now has an increased chance of containing a non-combat pet."
