Good news, though! Cory Stockton, aka Mumper, hinted that pet collectors might see this pet in the future. :D
"it’s not for launch. We have some good plans for it in a patch."Which patch? In what context will this pet show up? How will players obtain it?
Wowhead has it listed as a refundable item with a sell price. Could this indicate some sort of vendor pet? If so, will the vendor require unlocking? There are so many possibilities!
We'll just have to keep playing to see. ;)
