Can we ever have enough battle pets in WoW? All right, maybe. But can charities have enough donations? Probably not. So it's a good thing that Blizzard officials have unveiled a new fundraiser during BlizzCon 2021. To support Doctors Without Borders, players will soon be able to reach into their wallets and secure battle pets for their heroes in the Shadowlands.
Community Goals instead of direct purchase
You won't receive a battle pet in return for your donation, but you'll be working towards a big community goal no matter how much you donate: Once a certain amount is reached, all players in WoW will receive the little monkey banana. In the past, this was only available to a small select group of players during The Burning Crusade. As soon as the community's donations reach an even higher amount after that, there will also be a cute sloth named Daisy that digital heroes can even take on wild adventures on their backs.
For comparison, in 2019, the benefit pet was Dotty, the cute baby alpaca. Back then, the charity Make- a-Wish benefited from it. Today, you can always buy Dolly in the in-game shop, but the money no longer goes to charity.
More information about the new fundraiser should be published on the official WoW website soon.
What do you think of the two pets that the community can earn this year? Do you think the principle of a Community Goal is better than buying directly from the shop?Support buffed - it only takes a minute. Thank you!
