Phat Loot Phriday: Lil' Ragnaros


"You know what really burns my butt, Throgg?" Lolegolas said, massaging his backside as if he were in pain.

Throgg tilted his head to the side. His mouth hung open and his tongue dangled loosely. He looked like nothing so much as a happy labrador retriever. "What, little elf?"

"Waist-high fire gods," Lolegolas answered as he danced to the side. A small fire elemental stood where the blood elf had been, shaking a miniature hammer in the air. It would have been threatening if the tiny deity were larger than a trash can. "What is this thing?"

"It's Lil' Ragnaros!" Throgg exclaimed. "He's cute."

Lolegolas got down on one knee and poked toward the flaming creature with an arrow shaft. "It is kind of adorable." Lolegolas giggled. "Who's a cute little fire demon? Who's a cute little fire demon?"

"Lolegolas, don't taunt the fire demon."

"Why, can it hurt me?" the blood elf asked.

"No. That's just tacky," Throgg answered.

Lil' Ragnaros
What it is: A non-combat pet for sale through the Blizzard pet store.
How do you get it: Lil' Ragnaros will be on sale in the Blizzard pet store.
How do you get rid of it: Bucket of water? Honestly, as a learned non-combat pet, Lil' Ragnaros isn't really something you delete.
