Pet of the Day--Firewing

Today's pet of the day is the Firewing (or Sunbird or firebird if you like to call it that). This pet is FLAPPY! oh my goodness it's almost worse than the lightning bat. If you don't look at the pet's wings and just its body going up and down and up and down, it's hilarious!

Check out this amazing concept art for the firewing!


Look how cool those palette spots are on that! (Nicely painted my friends at KI!)

At the end of the day, I do have to cry foul (or fowl as the case may be) on the so called firewing that supposedly has a card associated with it. What? WHAT?! I made a special trip in to the War Oni today with the specific goal of farming up a firewing, and I got one for Bailey through the second chance chest, yay! However, much to my dismay, there was no card on this firewing pet. Thomas got his firewing a long time ago from Everburn, and it also had no card on it. Is the firewing with a card just a nasty rumor, an artifact of the past, or does the war oni actually drop BOTH? Is the wrong firewing pet in the loot table for the chest?


Mysterious! I may have to summon the powers of Greyrose to see if this is a glitch or working as intended! GASP!

**UPDATE** ME DUMB! War Oni drops the firewing with the card. Everburn drops the firewing without the card **UPDATE**

Either way though, it's a really fun and unusual pet that you don't see that often, and the Firewing just happens to be today's PET OF THE DAY!

Happy Dueling!

Friendly...you deleted a post?!?! o_O That is so un-Friendly-like...lol.

I was going to tell that person that posted in your comments that he needs to fight and defeat the Oni again to get the quest to come up again to go see Merle Ambrose to get on his way to DS. But hopefully you saw his comment and took care of it...

Anyhow; isn't that some of the coolest concept art for the Sunbird/Firewing? It's very Oriental looking...I love it! I got that Firewing a while back from the War Oni too.

I had heard at one time that they were not dropping the pets with cards anymore for some reason or another. BUT that makes no sense because I know, and you know that there are still pet drops with cards attached to them, and not just the Crowns pets either! So I think that must have been some weird rumor. It would be nice to know what is up with that...AND was there ever really a Sunbird/Firewing pet with a card?

Hope you will post when you find out what's up with all that :)

I know, I saw that he deleted a post too... that was weird.

Johnist said...

Yo, Friendly, I thought Oakheart dropped the Sunbird w/ Card. To my knowledge Oakheart is supposed to drop Sunbird (w/ card) and Treant (No Card).

Just something that came across my mind, from your neighborly Heal Tank.

Heather Emeraldflame said...

@Johnist: According to Central Oakheart only drops the Treant. Also according to them the War Oni IS SUPPOSED TO drop the Firewing with Sunbird card. But maybe it's all very outdated too.

Johnist said...

@Heather - yeah, it looks that way, but I could have sworn my trusted friend told me they got the Firewing w/ card from Oakheart. They were surprised to wee him drop it too.

Bailey said...

Hey sorry about the deleted post everybody... that was Mrs. Friendly (the level 48 pyromancer's) doing.... oops.

Johnist said...

Does anyone know why they changed the Battle XP formula?

The old Formula seemed fine, although it did favor those who used Minions...

Shadowstalker said...

LOL Bailey! Wondered why it got deleted so fast...

Heather Emeraldflame said...

@Bailey: Ah, I see now, Mrs. Friendly :)

@Johnist: Yeah, IDK. Be nice to know what happened to the one with a card though.

I have a Firewing with a card! I usually wear it on my Death (it matches the red outfits she likes to wear).

I believe that it was Oakheart who dropped it for me, but it was about a year ago, so I'm not 100% certain about that. I do remember getting it in Mooshu, though.

the sorcerer supreme said...

Johnist said...

@ Edward - Pet Master, He said he had farmed War Oni and got the one Without the card!

Are you absolutely certain that Firewing wasn't moved?

stingite said...

Oh oh ... Just confirmed with Greyrose, everburn now drops the firewing with the card NOT War Oni.

I will farm a bit tonight to verify, but as far as I'm concerned: mystery solved.

Heather Emeraldflame said...

Thanks for the update Friendly & Edward! :D

Johnist said...

Thanks Friendly!

T.S.S. said...

So basically they switched who drops the one with the card and the one without? Weird and why would that anyways?

Cheats and Crackers said...

@T.S.S

Probably because Everburn is a lot easier to farm than the Oni.

Johnist said...

@ Cheats -
Then by that logic Prince Gobblestone should have Arctic Serpent and Krokhotep should have Snow Serpent.

if you remember the raffle what was that old pinch grey rose prank

stingite said...

LOL . . . honestly, the worst day for misinformation from the friendly necromancer ever . . . making a post to explain.

Edward, you were right all along. I suck. You are extremely handsome. I am kind of a pig face. You are amazing. I am a drooler.

WAR ONI DOES IN FACT DROP A FIREWING PET WITH A CARD.

Note to self: don't trust a wife's character's backpack . . . ever. Good to know she now has THREE firewings. two without cards . . . and guess what had overflowed into the bank? yup.

/smashes head through window

How Greyrose even got it wrong though . . . I can't explain. Maybe it's a perfect storm of stupidity for team friendly.

yup.

as you were.

I got mine first try! yay! It was unworthy, but still cool to look at!

smvb said...

Ooooh. I think I might have to play my wizard who is about to enter Chrimson Fields. I've been pretty lucky the last couple of months with pet drops. Definitely worth spending a few crowns on the second chance chest to try for it....
