Fun With Your Pet: Saurok Disguise

Pet classes have a fun little perk to look forward to while questing on the Isle of the Thunder King in patch 5.2 - their pets get to change appearances!

Hey everyone, it's Kalliope. Now before you get all excited, let me tell you that this is not what it looks like. This video features a WoW rarity, a disguise that actually works on both you and your pet. And this isn't just for hunters, either - any pet class gets this little perk.

On the Isle of the Thunder King, two NPCs give the quest Skin of the Saurok - the Image of Archmage Vargoth for the alliance and Magistrix Saia for the horde. The quest simply involves walking into Ihgaluk Crag and turning in the quest remotely. From that point forward, you will always turn into a saurok in the Crag and your pet will turn into one of five options: a black slime; a pink grub; a tiny cockroach; a red basilisk with blue fringes, just like the sauroks'; or even a miniature saurok!

Unfortunately, this effect breaks on combat and only works in the Crag, but it is certainly fun while it lasts.

Be sure to get your favorite pet class onto the isle early - the quest seems to be phased out for late arrivals, at least on the PTR.
