Patch 4.1 has two new achievements for pet collectors: Petting Zoo for collecting 100 pets, and Menagerie for collecting 125 pets. According to devs, neither achievement will reward any new minipet, but they’ll still be nice for minipet collectors, especially those near the 100 or 125 mark.

As gold-makers in World of Warcraft, we will be more interested in these pet achievements for the opportunity to make gold from players!

One of my level 1 bank and auction house alts acts as a Pet Shop business, making a regular amount of gold from this super niche WoW business. ÂWith a guild bank full of rare pets, I use my alt to auction off the hard-to-find pets, as well as those that are cheap and easy to get.  Players are often too lazy to search for the sources of the pets themselves, and think of the mini companion pets as a treat or reward and a pleasant way to spend their extra gold.  Naturally, we want to cash in on this.

Another addition in 4.1 is the cute winterspring cub, an absolutely adorable lilac baby to match the Wintersaber mount.  I believe he is Bind on Equip so can be sold in the Auction House to other players like the other BoE minipets.  It’s one I’m going to want on all my alts.

If you want to make lots of gold with your own pet selling business please keep your eyes open for my next post, which will be quite a long one.
