Does anyone know if there'll be a new pet as part of the BlizzCon goodies this year? Or was the Shadow Fox that pet?

New per for Winter Veil the Globe Yeti, sounds a right pain to get from this post on Warcraftpets.com

Edit: The thing to remember the Globe Yeti spawns at level 3 so have a pet that has Weaken Blow (Terrible Turnip) or Superbark (Corgi Pup, Corgnelius, Grumpy, Molten Corgi and Scraps) already in your team.

I got the Globe Yeti tonight at 11:44PM in Ironforge. He appears to spawn about 30 minutes after his last capture. I got him on my forth attempt.

I recommend a "/tar globe yeti" macro and be ready to hit the "Interact with Target" hotkey - default is ";" but check your keybindings if you are not sure.

All four times he spawned near the large snowman in the globe.

Good luck!

One thing you could do is bind the targeting macro to mouse wheel up and interact with target to mouse  wheel down :)

I picked up my own Globe Yeti about five minutes ago. Jenilea's strategy worked perfectly for me, snatching the yeti out from under some warlock that was just running around.

Got one this morning.  One person was waiting when I showed up, so I waited until he captured it.  Foot traffic increased to ~3 other people waiting during the ensuing half-hour, but knowing when and where it would spawn, I was able to get it easily using a targeting macro and interact-with-target binding.

Disappointingly, "Globe Yeti" just means a yeti from a globe, not a yeti that floats inside a globe.

Andius, I wonder if I can ask you to check my arithmetic. (Anyone can check my arithmetic, but Andius has been through the entire grind and can spot when I've made a mistake in my assumptions.)

I'm inching my way towards the Prestige 7 battle pets. I don't have the time to do the PvP world quests, so instead I'm auto-completing the 500 Honor WQ once a day using my Horde Warrior.

He's presently at P1R33, so he's past the nerfing of Prestige Level 1. According to my own old records (maybe Blizzard has changed things), it's 46850 Honor to go from one Prestige level to another. 46850 Honor / 500 Honor/day = 94 days (rounding up). Ignoring the gap between where he is now and P2 (because I'm too lazy to add up the individual ranks), he's got 5 Prestige levels to go until 7. That comes out to 470 days.

Does this sound right to you?

Of course, BfA is probably going to come out before then, and odds are those Prestige 7 pets will vanish.

I make the total 44,000 to Prestige (1-10 800, 11-20 850, 21-30 900, 31-40 950, 41-49 1000) which would be 88 days a Prestige.

That isn't the sense I've gotten from dev interviews, although I don't have anything specific to point at.  They usually only remove the ability to get a cosmetic benefit if it demonstrates a certain level of skill, such as the mage tower challenge, and often not even then.  The prestige pets only demonstrate a certain level of time commitment to a specific area of gameplay.

(It was also clear from Blizzcon dev interviews that they hadn't decided what to do with PvP in BfA.)

Battle Standard of Coordination (Requires guild friendly) gives 15% extra honor so that 500 would become 575 which bring it down to 76.521 quests

Also remember that the Horn of War is a 18 hour cooldown, so if you did it every 18 hours that bring the number of days down to about 58 days (57.391 to be exact)

@Andius: So it appears that Blizzard reduced the rank requirements since I last recorded them a year or so ago. Good! I can't do that WQ every 18 hours, because I'm limiting myself to WoW once a day. I'll check if my Horde Guild has the Battle Standard; it's been a one-man (two-toon) Guild for over five years and I'm sure I haven't earned many perks, if any.

@Marco: Of course, I hope you're right. I'm inclined to think that they'll change the PvP currency again (Valor, Honor, Heroism, Ganker, whatever) and the entire Prestige system that goes along with it. But my inclinations have been wrong before!
