Where is my 2010 Winter Olympics Pet?
I am not a collector of vanity pets in-game. I have a tab or two of them, but that’s it. The one pet that I summon most often though is my Spirit of Competition.
The Spirit of Competition was a reward for engaging in battlegrounds during the course of the 2008 Summer Olympics. To me, it’s like PVP street cred. I see that little dragon and I know that there is a fellow PVP and battleground enthusiast.
So as the 2010 Winter Olympics games have been going on, I have been patiently awaiting a similar reward to add to my meager collection. Speculation has been rampant that Blizz will snub our great neighbor to the north and not recognize the Winter Olympics.
But then I saw this article on WoW.com yesterday, and I dared to hope again.
So Blizz, if you are reading this, give us our 2010 Essence of Competition!
