This is the reward for logging in during the
5th Anniversary Celebration
4th Anniversary Celebration
Baby Blizzard Bear
The letter that comes with the pet states:
Wow, another year has gone by for WoW!
We wanted to thank you again for continuing to play World of Warcraft with us. In celebration of our 5th year online, we decided to bring back our first raid encounter, the black dragon Onyxia.
To help remember the event, you are now the proud owner of your very own Onyxian Whelpling. We suggest you bring the little guy out whenever you can and say,
"Many whelps! Handle it!"
Your friends won't mind. Honest.
The WoW Dev Team
Notice the "/breath" emote tells your target to take a deep breath (says you take a deep breath with no target) if you time it right your chat log might just look like this:
You tell Onyxian Whelpling to take a deep breath.
Onyxian Whelpling take a deep breath...
And watch the smoke puff.
MANY WHELPS! HANDLE IT!
These whelps set off DBM deep breath warning while in Onyxia's lair.
It's because the poor little thing is out of breath, so much flying!
Onyxian Whelpling Deep Breaths more this patch? Thanks for letting us know, Blizz!
If anyone is wondering what the deadline is for collecting your whelpling, the answer is provided via
this post from Bornakk
on the WoW forums:
Any character that logs into the game between now and
Sunday, December 6 at 11:59 p.m. (realm time)
will receive their very own Onyxian Whelpling non-combat pet
Funny thing about this pet. If you have him out in Onyxia's Lair or even outside Onyxia's Lair, the Deep Breath emote sets off the DBM warning for Onyxia's Deep Breath if you're running r2049 or older. I haven't had a chance to check since I updated.
It seems these little guys don't mind us repeatedly brutalizing their mother right in front of them.
this pet is not bount to account anymore as of patch 3.3... it now just bind on pickup and one use only
aparantly i was wrong as fantom said, i was posting this same comment on some pets that really had been changed. and have probably just glitched when looking at this pet
sorry for the confusion and missunderstanding
Interestingly, I believe this is the first non-heirloom Bind on Account item.
he's cute, and funny looking with those bugged out yellow eyes. its really funny to look at.
so.. if its a whelp when it hatches what is it when its a whelp
? premature hatching? OR SECRET CHINESE PLOT?
I just ran a test with mine and unlike some other flying pets this one does NOT fly with you when you get on your flying mount, a little disappointing.
Does it deep breath more since the patch?
I had this pet on the anniversary and taught it to my main and now I'm starting the pet achievement on a new character and I found my baby blizzard bear but my whelpling was nowhere. I saw in these comments that its BOA and can be taught to all your new characters, and I also saw someone say if you had the achievement and you took out a ticket they would send you one. So I took out a ticket and when I talked to a Gm he told me that it was a one time use and only characters that logged on during fifth anniversary could learn it so I said I had heard it was like the baby blizzard bear and you could teach it to your new characters. he told me that it was not like the blizzard bear and once used it will disappear. So I'm not sure if this is something they changed or if he was mistaken, has anyone else had this happen, or know if it was changed so that you can not teach it to multiple characters?
Yes Item remains after teaching it to your new toon, I have about 4 or 5 of these floating around my toons, you can also send them cross faction to your cross faction toons on the SAME realm Ive done this several times recently.
This is account bound and can be re-used. So if anyone saved the item you can send it to any newer toons you have. My worgens been running around with it all week after I found it still sitting in an old alts bags. :D
As of the current patch, this is considered a Unique companion pet. Once you have learned it on one character, all your characters will have access to it. So there is no need to keep it in your inventory to mail to alts. This now allows you to have it on additional realms as well!
If you know this pet on multiple characters you will not see duplicates in your Pet Journal as with many common companion pets, such as the racial cats, moths, snakes dragonhawk hatchlings, etc.
I find this to be one of the strongest battle pets available at the moment.
Anybody know what one of these might sell for now that you can sell your companions?
While this specific "type" of the companion is no longer available in game you can get the same model pet through pet battles now! This pet is a rare spawn near Onyxia's lair (obviously) and as any other pet caught in a pet battle it cannot be caged and traded.
Does anyone know if the Deep Breath battle ability (the lvl 20 one) has a higher miss chance than other abilities, or am I just incredibly unlucky? Since I strated keeping track, this ability has missed 32 out of 60 times. Nothing else has anything near that rate in the same battles.
About a week ago (during Patch 5.3) I deleted a character that had FIVE of these in it's bank - still got those five & as you can use all Battle Pets account wide, I still don't want to get rid of them - can't use them, either as the pet is unique.
You can purchase this Pet at
for 80g in Ironforge if you have the Achievement and delete this item.
