Next TCG Expansion Pet

"News has started trickling in on the next WoW TCG expansion, War of the Elements. This second expansion of the "WorldBreaker" block is due for release late March and as usual we have loot information to report. As promised by Cryptozoic, the common loot is another re-skinned pet, this time the Lil' Phylactory is getting a makeover < The Black Flame > style..." - WoWTCG Loot
interesting. it would seem that the next common TCG loot card will be yet another copy of a pre-existing blizzard pet store companion (the phylactory teaches lil' k.t.). we'll have to wait and see whether or not it will be reskinned, changed, or follow in the same vein as the whole landro's lil' xt / lil' xt situation.

it would seem that the days of unique and highly sought after TCG pets are over. at least for the time being. being that they're the new common loot card, though, it wouldn't surprise me if this trend of mini-pet cloning continues.

is this a good thing? bad thing? only time will tell. for now, we'll just have to sit back and wait for the upcoming expansion and its lil'... to be announced pet. :P


  1. Hmm... maybe this is an effort on blizzard's part to curve the insane price on exclusive tcg cards. To me, the pet cards were always supposed to be a kind of fun/cool bonus for playing the tcg not something that was supposed to be sold to WoW players.

  2. Even though I only have a few TCG pets, I always enjoyed the fact they were unique even if they were very expensive to obtain. I'd rather that than "reskinning" the pet store pets. I'll reserve judgment until I see it, but Landro's XT does not leave me hopeful.
