So, this happened.
I’ve been embroiled in a lot of real life stuff, meaning that the blog has fallen a bit by the wayside, so this is relatively old news, but I still have to devote a post to the NPC bearing my name in the Warlords beta. There’s an NPC with my name on it! It’s very strange and surreal, but also so, so awesome.
Of course, I’m going to get to make another post to talk about it, because Lio seems to be a boss-style pet along the lines of the Beasts of Fable. There are a few others in already too, all nods to the pet battle community. Eleanor is named after a pet blogger and frequent battling comrade of mine on twitter, and her handle, @undeadgoat, is revealing of her NPC: an Undead Goat boss. Cymre Jones is the name of a blogger, and also a new tamer, whose team has yet to be revealed.
The pet battling community is tight-knit and welcoming, and everyone I know who creates content for this teeny niche does so because they really love pets or battling. I hope (maybe slightly assume) that other battlers will also be highlighted as more tamers and encounters in Draenor are revealed. And of course, this is all beta, so anything could change tomorrow.
But, to be selfish, this is a post about me. So now, thank you so much for reading, and letting me tell you how to make fuzzy little companions fight to the death. I can’t wait to help you through Draenor. Though I may tell you something totally wrong to beat my NPC. I mean, come on. You don’t really want to beat this adorable face, do you?
