More Patch 3.3.3 News

MMO-Champion has datamined more pet goodies for us!
Lil' XT - Right Click to set down or pick up your Lil' XT action figure.
if you remember a few patches ago (pre-ulduar) there was a pet that was datamined that resembled XT-002 Deconstructor, a boss in ulduar. it never went live though. so here's hoping that this Lil' XT is the finalized version of that companion, and blizzard will be kind enough to us and release it on live servers! (i also hope it's not a random drop off of ulduar trash or the boss himself >_<... perhaps a new engineering created pet?) the tooltip makes me wonder if it will be a stationary companion though. then again.... there are plenty of moving action figures out there XD

MMO-Champ also brings us a fabulously updated version of the Celestial Dragon's model. i'm so eager to see if this pet goes live! if it does, i absolutely can't wait to get my hands on it.

hmm... both pets seem to have a connection to ulduar bosses. lil' xt being a smaller version of XT-002 Deconstructor and the celestial dragon is reminiscent of algalon. i hope neither drops off the actual boss though. it would make it a "rare" pet, but at the same time it would leave out the players who don't have groups/friends/guilds to help them in ulduar raids.

now that i think about it, both pets remind me of lil' kt (especially lil' xt). a companion designed with an end game boss encounter in mind, but instead of being an item obtained in game you would have to buy it through the PetStore.

i wouldn't be surprised if these two showed up in the store in the future. i mean... it just doesn't make much sense (lore-wise) to walk around azeroth, pick up a small version of a boss, and claim it as your pet. does anyone really think KT or XT would be ok with miniature versions of themselves submitting to the will of mortals so easily? they'd be the laughingstock amongst all the other end game bosses. lol.

buuu~ut, it does say "action figure" so it doesn't necessarily imply that it is a direct version of XT-002. i could definitely see a gnome engineer being inspired to create an action figure based on the boss. silly gnomes and their toys. :P

well, we'll just have to wait and see.
