We have been able to collect companion pets since the Vanilla years of WoW. One of the things I have always found sad was the vast differences in the quality of design that went into our little friends.
This is what some of our oldest companions look like: (there are many more, not pictured here, that suffer this same design style)
|Don't laugh...you'll hurt their feelings...|
This is what some of our other oldest companions look like:
|So much more detailed don't you think?|
Now, compare them to their newer versions, in as close of comparison I could find:
|Details on steroids!|
See what I mean? Those poor dears just look so FUNNY compared to other companion pets we have.
Please Blizz, fix our pointy headed, flat faced friends soon. They deserve some love.
