Through December 31, 2015 all proceeds of this pet will be donated to the Make-a-Wish Foundation, a non-profit organization.

Whether you're adopting Brightpaw for yourself, gifting one to a family member or friend, or doing both, know that your purchase will be going to a charitable cause.

Note that you only need the WoW Battlechest to complete the process for the RAF rewards; the Warlords of Draenor license is not necessary on the RAF accounts. Also, it's possible to gift the WoW Battlechest to someone else, or to yourself for use at a later date.

Fjord Worg Pup — Pet of the Month: December 2015

December 16, 2015
Fjord Worg Pup - Pet of the Month: December 2015

Don't let the cold winter weather ruin your Winter Veil holiday — keep warm and snuggle up with a fiercely loyal, fluffy pup. This month we're covering the Fjord Worg Pup!

Collecting the Fjord Worg Pup
Fjord Worg Pup
The Fjord Worg Pup is a wild pet that can be found in Howling Fjord, Northrend. Located on the Isle of Spears, west of the mainland, their territory covers only a small fraction of the entire zone.

Despite their isolated home, these canines are quite prolific. With many spawn points, sometimes the area will be blanketed with these wild pets.

The Fjord Worg Pup spawns in only as a primary pet and has a relatively quick respawn rate. You might need to kill the Fjord Worg Pup's larger counterpart, the Spearfang Worg (level 70-71), should they get too close.

Finding the right quality and breed might take some time, but it's still one of the easier wild pets to come by. Which is good news for pet battlers since the Fjord Worg Pup is a prized beast in battles. And for collectors? It's a ferocious-looking yet lovable pup that's great for cuddling during colder months!

Battling with the Fjord Worg Pup
The Fjord Worg Pup is a high-damage Beast in more ways than one. It has a single defensive move, the relatively lackluster Crouch. In any case most tamers won't want to choose that move because it shares a slot with that game-ending powerhouse, Howl.

A multiplicative buff, Howl is an excellent choice in any situation you'd like to pack a big punch. It's also a bit easier to use than most other multiplicative buffs, making it a favorite, and part of why this pet is so favored.

The third slot of the Fjord Worg Pup heavily influences your first slot choice. Leap and Dazzling Dance both increase your pet's speed. Leap increases only your pet's speed, but by 100%. With the exception of some very strong PVE encounters and the odd Flying opponent, Leap will always make you faster than your opponent. The drawback is that it only lasts a single round, so you may find yourself drastically lowering your DPS if this is your choice.

Fjord Worg Pup using Dazzling Dance
The more popular choice is Dazzling Dance, which increases your entire team's speed by 25% with an extremely long duration of nine turns. In most cases this is going to be the best choice, because that 25% is going to make not only your Pup, but the whole team, faster than most opponents.

That leads us to your first slot which contains the only real DPS the Fjord Worg Pup brings to the table. Flurry is better throughput if you don't necessarily mind the Critter damage, and that 25% boost can assure you hit an additional time every time. Bite is a safer choice if the opponent is an unknown, but the Worg Pup's sheer power still makes this a scary proposition, even before that hard-hitting Howl comes in to play.

Special Limited Time Sale: WoD Digital Deluxe Bonus Items

December 18, 2015
The Warlords of Draenor Digital Deluxe was removed without warning from the Blizzard store a few months ago, making the bonus items unavailable for those still looking to collect them.

However, Blizzard has brought back those items for a limited time sale. [source]

Bonus Item Bundle
Dread Hatchling
You can now purchase the WoD Digital Deluxe bonus items in a special bundle for $20 (USD).

This bundle includes the Dread Hatchling pet as well as other bonus items for other Blizzard game titles. These collectibles only come with the Digital Deluxe or Collector's Edition of WoD.

To be eligible to purchase the Digital Deluxe bonus items bundle you must have an active WoW subscription and a WoD Standard Edition license attached to your account.

The bonus item sale will end prior to the Legion pre-patch (date currently unknown), so better not delay. This could be your last chance to collect the Dread Hatchling pet!
