Landro's Lil' XT has confirmed that landro's lil' xt will indeed be a loot card from the upcoming TCG expansion: worldbreaker (releases mid-december). not only will it be available soon, wowtcgloot also states:
- [Landro's Lil' XT] 1/3

"This means for the first time ever there will be a permanent pet in the common loot position in an expansion."
so unlike many of the other TCG redeemable vanity pets, this particular one will be more common and probably less expensive. perhaps this is due to the fact that it's pretty much a copy of an already existing companion (lil' xt) that's available from the official PetStore? it certainly wouldn't make sense to me to make it a rare (and therefore pricier) loot card when you could just buy a very, very similar and likely cheaper version from the PetStore.

landro's lil' xt does have something that lil' xt doesn't have; flavor text!
"Use: A near-perfect, goblin-manufactured knockoff of the Wonderworks original."
it's quite rare to see anything outside of the usual "use: teaches you how to summon this companion" or "right click to summon and dismiss your (insert pet here)" now that all vanity pets are learnable spells.

so in terms of uniqueness, the TCG version of lil' xt does have something over most other pets, even if it's just a semi-renamed version of an existing companion. and who knows? maybe blizzard decided to add some new animation to it or different vocalizations. i could imagine the TCG version falling apart when attempting to imitate lil' xt's animations due to its "knockoff" qualities. how fun would that be? :)


  1. I doubt it'll be a complete copy. Perhaps it can explode, since it's a goblin creation. At least they're going to make it cheap, I suppose. I can't say I'm not disappointed with this pet though.

    On the topic of flavor text, I remember way back when the Firefly had a flavor text on it.

  2. @Harval: cryptozoic's saying that it will be a recolored copy, but my hope is that it'll have at least one unique animation.

    i got the firefly for exactly that reason! :)
