Wild pets can no longer be auctioned in World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

Thinking of spending your days capturing wild animals, taming them, and then flogging them on the auction house, condemning them to a life of perpetual combat? And in World of Warcraft? Well, you can’t. In a post to the World of Warcraft forums, Blizzard developer Cory Stockton has noted that players will no longer be able to trade wild pets for the forthcoming World of Warcraft Pet Battles.

In the post Corey explains that “we just finished a pass making all pets that are caught via pet battles in the world non-tradeable. This means these pets cannot be put in cages for trading or posting on the AH. We felt that the option to buy these pets on the AH would take away from the exploration/collection gameplay of the system.”

It was only yesterday I was worried about the very same thing.

I do love the pet battles though. My Mr Chilly is kicking critter backside right now.
