I found this mildly interesting: apparently you can make a lot of gold quickly by picking random people on your server and asking to buy their pets for less than market value.  (Aside from any potential ethical considerations, spending hours a day cold-whispering strangers isn't my idea of fun, but it's still interesting to know that it works.)

A new pet has become available: the Silithid Mini-Tank. It can drop from rares in Silithus: http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=133064/silithid-mini-tank#comments

This can only drop in the post-Antorus phase of Silithus. Fortunately for me, it can be caged. It's available on the AH at prices that (on the insane pet collector scale) are reasonable.

There is two pets in 7.3.5 the  Silithid Mini-Tank and the Mailemental.

Mailemental
Mailemental Players must first obtain the breadcrumb quest from a lootable BoP letter on the ground next to a mailbox in Dalaran (Broken Isles). The item begins the quest Lost Mail. The lootable object has respawn time of roughly 2-3 hours.

Thanks, Andius. I hadn't noticed the Mailemental: http://www.wowhead.com/postmaster-questline

Even though picking up the initial breadcrumb quest is difficult (there's already a line at the mailbox in Dalaran), once it's completed you can send a copy of the Lost Mail to someone else so they can do it. Finally, World of Warcraft has a chain letter!

Edit: Even though the Mailemental is not cageable, the Lost Mail is tradeable. It's available on the AH at the usual inflated prices.

the mailbox in Dalaran

Does that mean it only spawns at one of the Dalaran mailboxes? There are quite a lot...

The quest starts with a dropped  Lost Mail on the ground by a mailbox in Dalaran, near the stairs leading to The Violet Citadel.

Thinking on it, I wouldn't worry to much about grabbing the Lost Mail from the ground before anybody else does. At the end of the quest chain, you get a new Lost Mail. You can pass it on to another one of your characters if you want more than one to have the Postmaster title. Or can you can sell on it on the AH. What I plan to do with mine (assuming that I'm weak-willed enough to buy it on the AH, which is a safe assumption) is to offer to pass it onto one of the Poor Unfortunate Souls who joined me on the Lagan run. If we pass it on to one another, we can all get the pet.

Had to be they did this to my favorite mailbox.  (It's a quick jump out the window from the Priest Class Hall portal).  I guess I'll jump off the interior balcony to the courtyard mailbox until things calm down.

I'm curious to learn if you find any part of the Mailemental quest chain to be difficult. I'm a bit worried about the mail sorting.

If this item can indeed be passed around I'd be interested in taking a turn somewhere in the line.

Note that it's now been hotfixed to spawn in front of a random Dalaran mailbox, not always the same one.

I'll set up a thread to do this but today (Wednesday) I'm a little busy. I hope to get around to it Thursday.

The Micronax pet is a reward for completing the Glory of the Tomb Raider achievement. If you'd like this pet, but you're not part of a guild or group that's going for the achievement, I found an opportunity (referred by warcraftpets.com): There's a fellow named Neall on on OpenRaid (http://openraid.zergid.com/) who organizes a wide array of instance-related achievement runs, including Tomb.

If you create an account on OpenRaid and do a search on #Neall, you'll see a list of his raids: http://openraid.zergid.com/events/find#event_name=%23Neall

He plans his raiding schedule a couple of months in advance, and I've signed up for the Alliance-side Tomb Achievement raids as Winston. His raids are usually over-subscribed. I believe he takes the first 30 people to sign up, and I'm not among the first 30 (though I'm 31st for the June 2 raid).

But...

On the Horde side, the June 3 Tomb Achievements sign-up list has not yet reached 30. I've signed up as Grotar for Damage/Tank. (I'll tank if he asks, but I've noted that I've never tanked a raid before.)  If you've got a Horde-side alt and you'd like the pet, this may be your chance; I certainly hope it's mine: http://openraid.zergid.com/events/view/311530#roster
