If you are interested in making a Belly Slide Bomb team then Pengu is the best balanced Penguin. The Tundra penguin has 244 speed so the ability to hopefully go first makes this little guy more viable. I would recommend going Tiny Snowman-Blizz-Stun then swapping to either Terky or Mr Wiggles for their 50% 4 turn hit chance. That will give you 3 turns of massive damage from Pengu.

My Pengu does nothing when I emote /sexy at him. He just stands there. Is he broken?

Fastest penguin available, with slightly above avarage power and health. Just watch out for birds, partner with Tiny Snowman can be great. Penguins are a bit random dependant with only defence coming from 20% hit reduction of Slippery Ice. Belly Slide hits really hard but with 50% hit you have to gamble. Slippery Ice buffed Ice Lance hurts alot, especially mechanicals. Surge is very nice to be able to throw in when you got the need for speed. All in all very nice aquatic.

I wonder if maybe Pengu doing the slide animation when you /sexy at him is a Fight Club reference. Anybody else think so?

Breanni you might want to update your thought on this pet since he lost his red eyes. He is no longer a demon Pengu.

I strongly recommend you all think Pengu is sexy and here's why:

/sexy at Pengu

He'll slide on his belly and a frost cloud appears! It's a pretty cool little animation! :D

Pengu just looks WRONG now... all wrong... he doesn't even want to come out to play any more... you can see it in his EYES. It's like he's been taken over by some blue-eyed demon :'(

Did Blizz ever even give a reason for the change?

(added Jan 5, 2010) Please put the old pic of Pengu back in Breanni... give him his red-eyed justice in at least one place in this tired old world of pc boringness (is there still no reason from Blizz for this travesty?). Revive the Pengu Revolution!

I agree -- Pengu's eyes should remain red so that he continues to be unique (and evil). Instead of posting your distaste for this change here, I urge you to add your support to the suggestion thread on the official WoW forums. If enough people post, they may yet change our beloved little Pengu back to his demonic self.

UPDATE: Kinda sad to see a blue-eyed Pengu after the launch of 3.3. :-(

If we're getting Mr. Chilly with his baby blue eyes, do we really need to change my oh-so-loved Pengu? Sure he's a little demonic, but so is every Warlock in the game. Does that mean we need to change them to make them fit in? No. Shame on Blizzard for saying that possessed penguins can't be loved.

I'm in agreement to PLEASE KEEP PENGU UNCHANGED! I have been working to get him for a while now and think he looks great with his red eyes. I was shocked to hear rumour that he will change to look almost identical to Mr Chilly. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT.

I am so very glad they changed Pengu's eyes back, as rockhopper penguins have orange/red eyes! Now he is anatomically correct in addition to being different from Mr. Chilly! A proper rockhopper :). A pic:

I agree with Nanalady, I like pengu's current eyes. I don;t understand why they need to change them, since we are gonna get cute non-demonic penguin soon, but such is life I guess.

I actually like Pengu's red eyes and I'm kind of upset they are being changed. On MMO where they show the comparison pics they just look way too similar. 8/29/12 Omg! Just realized with 5.4 that they fixed his eye yay!

Apparently, according to the rumours from PTR 3.3. Pengu has successfully undergone an exorcism. Either that, or he got some eye drops. Apparently his eyes are no longer red. So make sure you take all the demonic penguin screenshots now, before the patch goes live.

I think Breanni is right about this pet.
Helping some friends through Blood Furnace and showing the place to Pengu, Magtheridon cried out: "The master has come."
Briefly i saw Pengu's eyes sparkle.

The dailies are very simple, i was exalted with the kalu'ak before i even got to lv 78, i simply did all the quests they had to offer and did the dailies for a couple of weeks.
