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!
