Smallpets

Companions (a.k.a. small pets, non-combat pets, mini-pets, or vanity pets) are small creatures (or mechanical replicas thereof) that follow your player character around. They are mainly for show. Several of these companions have their own characteristic behaviors (see individual descriptions).

Companions cannot attack or be attacked in the normal sense, however, [Sleepy Willy] will kill critters, [Clockwork Rocket Bots] will battle each other, and [Crashin' Thrashin' Robots] "will fight other fighting robot companions", a PvP game within the game. Companions have a small hidden amount of health and can be killed by the pet swimming in lava, standing on fires, or other environmental means of damage.

You can own as many companions as you like. Each one you acquire is added to the pets section of your character sheet.

The Blood Parrot, spawned from the [Bloodsail Admiral's Hat], and the Coyote Spirit, spawned from [Don Carlos' Famous Hat], are exceptions and are summoned from the corresponding item. These are both items of apparel of some value in their own right, and having the item of apparel disappear when the pet is spawned would not be a welcome change. Because these two pets spawn differently than the other companions, they are not currently counted toward the pet achievements.

Peddlefeet, when spawned by being shot with a [Silver Shafted Arrow], is also an exception and does not count toward the pet achievements.

You can only have one companion out at a time, and summoning another one replaces the one that's already out.

Once summoned, companions will attempt to accompany your player character as you move about the game world. Some appear to be better at this than others. Jumping down from an elevated location will often send a companion off on a circuitous route to reach your new location. If your companion gets left behind, it may catch up and reappear, but may have to be re-summoned. There is no penalty for re-summoning. (The Tiny Snowman is stationary, and will not follow you.)

If you are teleported or use any form of transportation that reloads the environment your companion disappears and has to be re-summoned. The only ship or zeppelin that doesn't is the ship between Teldrassil and Darkshore. If you log out your companion disappears and has to be re-summoned during your next session.

While some companions can only be purchased by certain factions, most vended companions and many dropped companions can be traded at Auction Houses. Companions obtained through quests are bind on pickup and cannot be sold. Pets you learn how to summon cannot be learned again, so you are prevented from owning duplicate pets.

Game considerations Edit

Though intended to be a cosmetic accessory, companions have some impact on the game.

A [Disgusting Oozeling] projects a "Disgusting Aura" when it accompanies its owner. The aura reduces the owner's defense and all resistances by 20, and colors its owner green as if the owner were poisoned.

Companions do not stealth. If your character uses stealth, your companion will reveal your presence.

  • In PvP, companions will reveal your location to opponents.
  • In PvE, mobs do not notice companions, so having one can be useful to indicate your location to party members.

Flying pets of any sort can sometimes interfere with clicking to target. This affects the pet owner, PvP opponents, and even party members desiring to buff or heal the pet owner. This is not normally a significant problem, but in the midst of frantic PvP combat, the interference can be noticeable.

The [Ethereal Soul-Trader] will vend several items to its owner. One of these, [Diluted Ethereum Essence], is designed for being used in combat (but see [Elixir of Detect Lesser Invisibility], the impact is minor). The other items are a set of costume items with no stats that allow you to dress up as an ethereal, a ball that can be played with in-game (there are others, such as [Heavy Leather Ball]), [Ethereal Mutagen], which will transform a non-combat pet into a fleshbeast, and [Ethereal Liqueur], a conjured alcoholic beverage.

Achievements Edit

Money achievement Can I Keep Him? grants 10 achievement points when you obtain a vanity pet.

Money achievement Plenty of Pets grants 20 achievement points when you Collect 15 unique vanity pets.

Money achievement Plethora of Pets grants 30 achievement points when you Collect 25 unique vanity pets.

Money achievement Shop Smart, Shop Pet...Smart grants 40 achievement points and a [Reeking Pet Carrier] is mailed to you when you Collect 50 unique vanity pets.

Money achievement Lil' Game Hunter grants 50 achievement points and a [Little Fawn's Salt Lick] is mailed to you when you Collect 75 unique vanity pets (Added in Patch 3.0.8)

As noted above, the Blood Parrot (see [Bloodsail Admiral's Hat]) and the Coyote Spirit (see [Don Carlos' Famous Hat]) are spawned from items rather than learned, and are not currently counted toward the pet achievements. Similarly, the [Crashin' Thrashin' Robot] created by engineers remains an item due to its cooldown characteristics.

Temporary companions Edit

There are companions that can be acquired for a time that aren't normally regarded as companions, but pretty much do the same thing as permanent companions. Many of these are in the context of a quest. Some examples are the orphans for Children's Week, Peddlefeet from the [Silver Shafted Arrow], Nass from Neutral 15 [75] Kickin' Nass and Takin' Manes. None of these count toward the pet count achievements. When a temporary companion is spawned your current companion is despawned.

Feast of Winter VeilEdit

These companions are available as gifts during the Feast of Winter Veil event, and can be kept and traded all year round.

Love is in the AirEdit

This companion is available as a received item during the Love is in the Air event.

  • Truesilver Shafted Arrow – BoP Event Reward - permanent training to summon, but cannot be traded to other characters.
  • Inv ammo arrow 02 [Peddlefeet] – BoP Event Reward - creates a Peddlefeet companion for another player, once per consumable arrow.
    • The companion is the same, by either method.
    • Receiving Peddlefeet by the second method does not count toward the pet achievements, since the skill to summon Peddlefeet is not learned.
      • Giving ten Peddlefeet companions to other players by shooting them with the Silver Shafted Arrows has its own event achievement, Shafted!.
    • This second method of obtaining Peddlefeet is limited to around two weeks after the Love is in the Air event, depending on when the Silver Shafted Arrow (duration of 10 days) is looted from the container.
      • Most of the arrows are used up quickly, so a more realistic limit is "while the event is in progress".

There were samples of this companion in the Ironforge and Orgrimmar battle rooms during the 2008 Summer Olympics.

Mailed to all players on Nov. 23, 2008 as a gift for WoW's 4th anniversary, one to every character you own.

BugsEdit

Patch 3.0.2, Oct 14, 2008, introduced the companion inventory item, the container, as a charged item with a single charge that spawns the companion in your pets section. After the patch was introduced, all existing pet items (i.e. those in the mail, in your bags, in the bank, etc.) were disallowed from being put up for auction. The auction system would see the pet items as "an item with charges used" and would not post them. These items are still usable, but simply may not be auctioned. New pet items created after the patch, by purchasing from a vendor or receiving as loot, may be auctioned as before.

APIEdit

As of patch 3.0.2, a number of companion-related functions have been added to the World of Warcraft API, chief among them GetNumCompanions() and CallCompanion().

Patch changesEdit

Patch 3.1.0 (2009-04-14): Several new companions added: Murkimus the Gladiator, Plump Turkey, Spring Rabbit, and Strand Crawler.
