I decided to bit the bullet and bought a Tiny Emerald Whelpling from the Auction House for 1300 gold. This is a pretty good price, probably the lowest I've ever seen. Since this pet is a pain to grind because there are few mobs that drop it in the Swamp of Sorrows, I figured it's more efficient to just buy it from the AH.
Former WoW player, current Diablo 3 fanatic, I love the finer things in life such as PC games, beer and computers. While playing a good game is a spiritual experience, blogging about it is almost equally rewarding.
