In news that may interest people who struggle to comprehend their partners’ immersion in MMORPGsWorld of Warcraft is set to unleash man’s new best friend: a “Molten Corgi.”

The pup is just one part of the November festivities planned for WoW’s 10th anniversary, which will include nostalgia-based rematches and one-time raiding opportunities. It’s also obviously the best:

Anyone who logs in during the 10-year anniversary event will also be able to claim a feisty, fiery new pet: the Molten Corgi! Just think of the corgi-parade potential when you and your friends summon these wee waddling balls of fire for a walk.


I don’t know what’s more amazing: that it took a full decade for Blizzard Entertainment to conceive this delightful in-game companion, or that people were willing to play all those years without one.
