Argi Now Available In The Blizzard Store

December 03, 2014
UPDATE: The option to purchase the pet for another player is not available at this time, and it's unclear when it will be possible to gift Argi to another player. [source]

Argi coming December 3
A new pet, Argi, is now available for adoption from the Blizzard Store. This adorable little spacegoat costs $10 and is part of a limited time charity drive.

From December 3 through December 31, 100% of all Argi adoption proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross, a nonprofit organization, in an effort to help the Ebola relief efforts. [source]

Argi will certainly be a thoughtful gift for a friend or loved one (or even yourself!) this holiday season.

Molten Corgi — Pet of the Month: December 2014

December 17, 2014
Molten Corgi — Pet of the Month

In honor of 10 wonderful and exciting years of WoW, this Pet of the Month features a unique pet — the Molten Corgi.

Collecting the Molten Corgi
Molten Corgi
The Molten Corgi can only be obtained during the WoW 10th anniversary celebratory period.

Any character that logs into the game between November 21, 2014 through January 5, 2015 will receive this little pup in their in-game mail. A small note from the WoW Dev Team is included along with the corgi.

"Can you believe it's been ten years?

We wanted to thank you for joining us in our celebration of the tenth anniversary of World of Warcraft with this adorable fiery fellow, plucked from the Firelord's Litter."

Unfortunately, the Molten Corgi is not cageable and cannot be traded to others. It's unknown whether or not this pet will still be available even after the anniversary festivities have ended, however it seems unlikely.

You definitely don't want to miss out on adding this pet to your collection, so be sure to log into the game before January 5th!

Battling with the Molten Corgi
The Molten Corgi is a fantastic pet to highlight in the month of December, because it has all the bells you might associate with a festive Winter Veil and a couple whistles to boot. Every single one of its abilities has a useful, diverse mechanic.

The Corgi has Bark in the first slot, which is a spammable attack that decreases the power of your opponent's next attack. It also gives this Elemental pet a bit of Beast damage, which is a fairly unique attribute.

Flamethrower is the other choice in the first slot. It's an Elemental spell which puts a DoT on whichever pet is in your opponent's front row. If a heal is what you need, the Corgi can use Cauterize, a very strong single-turn heal.

Puppies of The Flame
Need an avoidance spell or a Force Swap? Sharing slot 3 is Puppies Of The Flame (pictured above), a multi-turn burrow ability similar to Sons Of The Root, and a force swap in Inferno Herding.

Best of all, the Molten Corgi has Superbark. Superbark will never bring your opponent below 1 health, making the Corgi only the second pet in the game with such a useful ability for taming wild pets. Superbark hits quite hard and has a long cooldown, which makes it even more ideal for taming than that trumped-up rutabaga in most cases. Flamethrower & Superbark can be chosen at the same time, so be careful.

The down side to all this madness is that the Corgi doesn't have any straight forward damage dealing abilities. You have to choose between abilities which are all slightly lackluster damage-wise in order to compensate for the other things they can do. This is fine, it just requires a bit of planning, and maybe a bit of babying your new Molten Corgi.

Check out our forum thread discussion on the Molten Corgi and submit your own thoughts on this pet.
