I think this one is the hardest to figure out what it will look like
If you are horde (not sure about alliance) and complete the quest to obtain the horde balloon, the little orc floats up and you can see the darkmoon balloon design along with alliance and horde balloons taking her away~

OMG I can't wait to use this in pet battles, I bet it will be immune to ground type attacks, ITS GONNA PWN SO BAD!
If you want to see what this looks like, The baloon is tied to the mailbox outside Stormwind Bank and various other places to promote the Faire event.
Looks virtually the same as
which costs 9s 50c from the balloon vendor wandering around. The difference being that the flimsy version is an item that, although seems to have unlimited use, is an item and not a companion, therefore taking up a bag slot and also doesn't count towards your companion count.
Thank god I bought the Flimsy one first, I would be so mad to get the ballon for 90 tickets since you can have something similar for so little cost!
Very dissapointed that it doesn't work with my
. Balloons make bad pets.
I just noticed, this is not showing up on my armory. I have 199 pets in game, 198 per the armory. Weird bug.
anyone else noticed this pet shows up in your spellbook as well?
I was wondering the same, since the other balloon pets are in my pet tab.
I'm also annoyed that this (and any other balloon) cannot battle, yet a lantern can? It should have a high-level finishing move called Pop where it sacrifices itself for your team by blowing up the opposition. You'd have to rez it afterward but hey, you won right?
Does anyone else find it incredibly strange that it shows up not only in your pet list but also in the general tab of your spellbook?
Today's market news:
is down, and
Blizz gives you the option to name your pets. No, nothing like 'Ballooney' or 'Sir Floatsalot' for my balloon. I like to use phrases like 'Who Farted', 'I Have To Pee', or 'Helium Is Dumb'. Whatever fits my current mood. I change the phrases quite often. Give it a try. It's fun/funny... :) Makes me giggle.
I still have hope that this can become a battle pet eventaully. I agree with others; why can a lantern fight, but not a balloon? It just doesn't seem fair. Either make it cost less than 90 tickets, or allow it to battle. What's that, Blizzard? You couldn't figure out to implement a balloon? Well here's an idea, just off the top of my head:
1) "Static friction" - similar to
; rubs the target for weak dmg at first, but builds over time.
2) "Helium" - similar to
; the balloon leaks a tiny bit of helium, increasing hit chance by 10%, and vocal range by 2 octaves
3) "Carried away" -
; the balloon is temporarily carried away by a gust of wind, becoming un-attackable 1 round, then deals damage when returning
4) "Whip" - similar to
; the balloon's string whips the target 1-2 times; an extra time if faster.
5) "Darkmoon stare" - similar to
; the Darkmoon eye stares at your opponent, reducing accuracy for two rounds
6) "Pop" - similar to
; the balloon is poked with a sharp object, sacrificing it's remaining health for a % of dmg
Moves 1,2,5,6 are magic based, moves 3,4 are flying based. Darkmoon Balloon comes as a B/B breed.
Instant battle pet.
