A reward from Brewfest. a Wolpertinger is a small, rabbit creature with antlers and wings.
the tiny pet it summons is invisible to everyone but yourself...
except if they're really, really drunk.
Wolpertingers are mythical animals from the forests of Bavaria in Germany. They typically have the body of a rabbit with an owl's wings, small antlers like those of a stag and fangs like a wolf's.
The Wolpertinger is a ficticious animal that only the player sees while drunk. If you have full screen glow effects on, the Wolpertinger will appear only as a
, making the player seem as if they are "seeing things." This is why other players cannot see it.
Try to click on it. It will make some cute sounds!
Could you stop making these rumors (hmm... or maybe Blizzard changed something in new patch?)? I just have been with Warlock in Outlands who had this pet and I could see it with no problem. Also, I am 100% sure than I was sober, I didn`t drink any alcohol that session.
I can confirm that, while it is invisible to others, anyone in a group with you in either a party or raid can see it.
If you're shrunken as a gnome (transporter debuff, noggenfogger, world enlarger, etc) this thing is relatively large enough to be a flying mount :P
Anyone else think they sound like tribles (those things from star trek)? I've never really heard a Trible before (seeing as I'm no treky), but I can only imagine that this is how they would sound.
You CAN see it in raids, drunk or not. Buddy had one out tonight and I could see, no drinking at all.
JACKALOPE with WINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wub this lil'guy!
So if u see an enemy rogue going into stealth be sure to drink a lot: who knows, maybe you will see his pet =)
this was a surprise since most festival pets are temporary, but its so cool nonetheless!
How long will it keep for?
And surely you can see it if your not drunk? I learnt about this after seeing someone elses and i was definately not drunk, not even tipsy.
i looked it up, apparently wolpertingers are the German version of a jackalope, just with with fangs and wings.
visible even if you are not drunk
This is how they look like:
See big version
See big version
Wolpertingers are SO ADORABLE! I love running around in moonkin form with mine because we're both hairy, feathered, antlered abominations. ;)
The in-game tooltip mentions this pet as "imaginary." Just as the quest to obtain this pet requires you to be drunk to find them, you must also be drunk to see
Wolpertingers. You will be able to see your own whether sober or otherwise.
Will the wolpertingers still be ours after the Brewfest is over (on the 18th)? Or have we all gotten smashed and acquired a cute little companion for keeps? Anyone know?
i seriously doubt that blizz will take TEH BEST PET EVAH (in my "professional opinion"). there's no timer on the pet sayin when it will expire like with some of the other from brewfest, so im pretty dang sure u keep it.
-This pet is Got trough the quest:
Catch the Wild Wolpertinger!
-It will stay with you even after the Brewfest.
-Only you, people in your Party/Raid and drunk people can see it. So it will be invisible to all other people.
-Makes cute noises when you click on it.
-The "real" Wolpertinger is a "monster" from Germany: (
Its extremely easy to get and very well worth it, the brewfest lasts to the 16th October so get it while you can!
this thing rocks its so cute but it will take forever to get it on all my alts lol
wolpertingers pwn so hard..fck yea!
So does this pet have anything special about it? Like how sleepy willy has his eye-beam-critter-nuker.
That would be cool.
lol im not drunk but i can still see mine but everyone else cant
looks like a bad paint job of the rabbit skin, 10/10 for originality, antlers and fangs? come on.....
Would be funny if it could attack. Fly for the throat with it's fangs gnashing. Kinda like the "Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog" from Monty Python and The Holy Grail. Vorpal Bunny.. ATTACK!
The thing will follow you every where. Even if your on a mount.
Since the brewfest is "finished", I can't "complete" mine, rofl.
I still love my Panda Cub & Netherwelp :D xDD
to throw the holy hand grenade, first pull the holy pin from said grenade, then hold it for 3 seconds, not 1, or 2, or 5,3!, then thrwo the grenade at said foe...
1, 2, 5... three my lord,... oh sorry, 3!
bye bye bunny lol!
This guy is so cute...That bunny is worth more than the brown rabbit from Netherstorm!
Other players can't see it unless they're drunk or in your party/raid.
It would've been otherwise very nice to show off in a few months for people who haven't been in Brewfest ^_^
Would be nice to get another next year like the groundhog in caddyshack
It must be with you forever, cuz I still have mine. Can't confirm that others can't see it (w/o being drunk). Haven't tried that yet.
Reminds me of the redneck "jackalope" :)
The quest is no longer required to get the Wolpertinger's Tankard, in fact, the quest doesn't appear to even be in the game anymore (at least, I can't find it). You just buy Wolpertinger's Tankard from a Brewfest vendor for 50s now. I'm not sure why this change was made, and I don't really know how to feel about it, but it is what it is.
