The Trading Post is the new in-game rewards shop coming to Patch 10.0.5. It’s a great way to collect a heap of cosmetic items as well as some pets and mounts including the Celestial Steed. Yep, the one you probably bought for AUD$34 when it was added to the Blizzard Store in April 2010.

Celestial Steed and Celestial Dragon

Trading Post Pets

A number of pets will be added to the Trading Post when it launches on February 1st. To purchase any of the rewards, you will need to earn Trader’s Tender by completing various challenges like showing love to the Aspects or completing WQs. The rewards rotate every month and will be able to earn 1,500 Trader’s Tenders in the first month alone. From there it will be a maximum of 1,000 per month. To see your progress, open the Traveler’s Log in the Adventure Guide. The first pet to appear is a little ogre who is oddly mesmerising. Check out the video for an early preview. It looks like the pets will each cost 750x Trader’s Tenders judging by the first two months.


Garrlok – February
Ancient Gorian blood runs through Garrlok’s veins. As far as anyone knows, only his diminutive stature keeps his imperial ambitions in check.

pandaren monkPandaren Monk – March (also from the In-game Shop) see video for March’s Inventory
The pandaren monk is a fearless traveling companion, constantly training in his art… unless you offer him a drink. He considers it rude to refuse.

There will be one more pet making a move to the Trading Post when it retires from the Blizzard Shop.

Lil’ K.T. – Give the gift of diminutive undead companionship with Lil’ K.T. The mini-lich. What Lil’ K.T. lacks in size, he more than makes up for in sheer malicious intensity. Watch with misplaced pride as he randomly freezes critters and laughs maniacally at your vanquished PvP foes.

Other pets have been datamined but it will probably be some time before we see the rest. Don’t worry though, you can lock one item to keep it active or wait until it cycles through again if you missed out the first time.

His pink antlers make him the life of any party.

Lil’ Maka’jinlil'-maka'jin
Looks like Ben’jin and Maka’fon have kept busy since you last saw them. Maka’jin is ready for adventure but will settle for a large pile of leafy greens.

He has a heart of gold. Literally. These shiny good-boys are all the rage with affluent gnomes everywhere.

drazka'zet-the-wrathfulDrazka’zet the Wrathful
Fooled aeons ago by the clever loa of death into a bargain of unceasing service, this tiny ancient being carries out his duties eternally red with rage.

Some species of red bees are known to lead solitary lives. Still, this busy bee seems happy to make time for you.

Some hawkstriders are destined to be great. Others are destined to be Egbob.

Siege training begins early for kodo calflings that show a predilection for violence and a lack of inhibitions towards breaking things. Mind your shins.

Watcher of the Huntress
To its foes, this Watcher’s innocent eyes belie the lethal danger of a prowling Huntress, waiting in the shadows.

Storm’s Fury

What do you think of this new set of pets?
