Patch 4.2: Diablo-themed Murkablo pet uncovered

The latest build of the patch 4.2 PTR has revealed a new item that should make you want to stay a while and listen! Murky's Little Soulstone will summon Murkablo, who appears to be a murloc-ized version of the Diablo series' main villain: err, Diablo. It's very likely that this undoubtedly fearsome fellow is this year's BlizzCon goodie bag pet, though it's also possible that he could be one of the extras for purchasing the Diablo 3 collector's edition (much like Starcraft II's Mini Thor). Given the heavy murloc theme for BlizzCon, though, it's likely the former.

There's no model quite yet, but Murkablo's icon is available over at Wowhead News.

The news is already rolling out for the upcoming WoW Patch 4.2! Preview the new Firelands raid, marvel at the new legendary staff, and get the inside scoop on new quest hubs -- plus new Tier 12 armor!
