*insert inaudible squeeing here* FINALLY! A bronze whelpling to collect! In addition to this teaser screenshot, LeCraft provided another bit of trivia concerning the last little dragon.
Fun fact: the bronze whelpling and its summon spell were created in 2004, but never made it into the game.— Jonathan LeCraft (@TheCrafticus) August 11, 2014
I'm curious about the reason why this pet was put on hold for such a long time, but a large part of me thinks that it doesn't really matter that much. It's better to focus on the fact that we'll FINALLY have a bronze whelpling to round out the rest of the dragon aspect family.
"Hell, it's about time" is 100% right. Even whelplings that don't necessarily fit into the dragon aspect group made it into the game as collectible pets before the bronze. That's nuts.
