Strangely enough, the rare pet Frosty was one of the first I obtained in World of Warcraft. Now, many people are enquiring as to how I managed to do this. It was easy at the time (November 2009), but now it’s a little trickier – though not impossible.
When I first started playing WoW, it was October 24, 2009. I knew nothing about the game back then, but really admired people who had cute little pets running after them. But I couldn’t find any shops selling them; not even in StormWind. Then I saw a level 80 warrior who had a cat at his site, and I asked him how he had obtained it. This kind person gave me a snake, but I still didn’t know how to get more pets by myself. For my birthday in November, my husband offered me the special edition of the Wrath of the Lich King extension and, to my great surprise, it included an in-game virtual pet – Frosty. Frosty is a flying skeleton dragon whelp that has a frosty look, just like it should have, since it’s related to the Lich King.
Unlike some other items, Frosty is truly account bound. All of your characters receive it, whether or not they are on the same server or faction. When you create a new character, they will automatically receive Frosty in their mailbox. You don’t have to do anything to achieve this and, best of all, you don’t have to send anything, since you can only mail items to the same realm and faction. The Wrath of the Lich King Collector’s Edition sold out in a few days, but you can still get it if you search for it on either eBay or Amazon. Just make sure that the box is un-opened.
If you already have the extension, you just have to write to Blizzard and tell them about the code you received in your Collector’s Edition, and they will tell you which papers to send them. After a few weeks, you’ll receive your pet. Also, if you already have the extension, you will not care about the language of the Collector’s Edition. We obtained one for my husband in German. Much easier to find there, than in English speaking countries. So, if you want to add the cool looking Frosty to your collection, don’t hesitate. Get it now, while it’s still available. There are only limited supplies available, and remember… unlike loot cards which normally are soul bound, you get this pet for all of your characters.
