It may look like I have the pet summoned and in front of me, but that's actually a herb node in one of the soil plots on my farm. The Ominous Seed that was once there actually turned into the Terrible Turnip even before harvesting! And obviously it dropped the pet for me after I looted it. :P
I'm so happy that I get to preview this little veggie before MoP. Honestly, my hopes weren't very high that I would get to see this one while on the beta since the droprate seems pretty random. RNG and I have never really gotten along lol.
The Terrible Turnip is adorable. :) It's summoning and idle animations are very similar if not identical to Lil' Ragnaros, though. That's kind of a bummer since this pet is so unique. Was kind of hoping for a unique idle animation too. I could see this pet doing a small dance for some reason haha.
Anyway, the Terrible Turnip is awesome regardless. I just hope I get this lucky with my Tillers farm once MoP goes live!
PS: I don't actually think turnips taste bitter, but I know some people do. ;)
