Yay! Another non-combat pet to add to my already large collection. At least, I thought it was. It is. Kind of. It's saved to the companions tab anyway....
He comes with a banner, yielding your guild crest. Pretty cool, IMO! Not only that, but he is also a vendor. Not just any vendor, either. He is a guild vendor! So you are able to purchase guild rewards from him.
What's the catch, you ask?
Wtf. Eight hour CD and he only lasts 5 minutes? If I wanted my ex as a non-combat pet, he wouldn't be my ex, now would he?!
WTG, Blizzard. WTG.
