Lil' Ragnaros and Moonkin Hatchling pets preview


Blizzard is previewing the two pets that will be offered this month in the Blizzard Store: Lil' Ragnaros and the Moonkin Hatchling. Lil' Ragnaros, pictured above, will not be associated with a charity. As reported before, however, a portion of the proceeds from the Moonkin Hatchling will be going to a charity that has yet to be named. Blizzard has not announced when these pets will be available to purchase or for how much. If they keep the same pricing as last year, however, the pets will be $10.00 (EUR 10,00) each.

The full announcement by Blizzard and action shots of the hatchling are after the break.

They're cute, they're portable, and they're coming to the Blizzard Pet Store. But before they arrive, we wanted to give you a sneak peek of our two newest companions: Lil' Ragnaros and the Moonkin Hatchling. As announced at BlizzCon, the Moonkin Hatchling will follow in the charitable footsteps of the Pandaren Monk, with sales helping to benefit a good cause. More details, including the availability date and specific plans for the charity partnership, will be announced in the weeks ahead, so stay tuned!

It looks like the hatchling comes in different models for each faction. Here is the Alliance one.

And below is pictured the Horde hatchling.
No word yet on the animations for either pet, though it's obvious that the Moonkin Hatchling can fly at least a little bit. I'm afraid that at least one of these will have to be mine. I think the hatchling will be a better companion for my sparkle pony, and then I can rationalize the purchase as helping charity. Will you be getting one or both as well?
