What does it do? Nothing really.
Except exhude cute.

Remember cosmetic companions? Cute (mostly) little pets that you can purchase to follow your character around? They don’t do anything but look cute (again, mostly), tiny tamagatchi designed with the sole purpose of separating you from your Turbine Points.

But they sure are cute. Mostly.

Remember Kobolds? They remember you. tiny, (sort of) cute, very twitchy, overrunning the Stormreach sewers, dancing about and frying you with lightning. Saying crazy and (sort of) cute things in Crystal Cove. Some people really love kobolds.

And they are cute. Sort of.

Now please strap yourself in as we are about to be inundated by a squeestorm the like of which has not been seen since … well … since at least this video. Maybe worse.

Turbine is including tiny kobolds as cosmetic companions in the new patch. Blue, red, or green shamans will now dance preposterously along with you as you ply your way through Eberron and Faerun. Available now on Lamannia.

Kobolds. Companions.

The world will never be the same.

  2. See? The first comment is in and its all-caps and slams. Brace yourselves, the squeestorm is coming.

  3. Gots to love Mizz πŸ™‚ Hey, I hear she’s cute too, just like a kobold(sort of).

  4. A (“mostly”) nice post (“sort of”). hehehe

  5. Must….have….lizard-monkey….pet…..NAOW!

  6. I said before I’d buy one if they came out. In fact I think my exact words were “If they came out with a kobold pet in the DDO store I would totally buy one!” If its a shaman kobold I’m not so sure. . . “Adventurer always hate you! Adventurer remember elite lightning bolts in harbor.”

  7. Actually, it wasn’t just the lightning bolts…it was the Hold Person followed by the lightning bolts. Ouch! πŸ™‚

  8. Just to make it “official” (since no one else seems to have done it, yet)…


    (Though not so much for me…still, someone had to do it, right? RIGHT?)

  9. SQUEEEEEE! I want a kobold!


  10. Ah…the usual suspects are chiming in…or is that the unusual suspects…

  11. I dont squee! But I do go into random fits of happy dancing! And did I get called cute?! Thats just weird grampy 2. Its just weird.

  12. The purple one looks like a smurf πŸ˜€

    I WANTS A SMURF!!!!!

  13. Even if I have to say I like it more then the other pets. But I don’t think I will get one.

    But if someone can request a smurf, then I will request Squee himself or Hobbes (actually any tiger will do, love them)

  14. A smurf pet? Now, THAT might make me squee and happy dance!!! ITD BE A HAPPY OVERLOAD!!!

  15. I dunno… I’d still rather have a wee widdle Arraetrikos a la ToD. I would tickle him and give him Festivault cookies, and he would bask in my destruction every time I failed DDO! Sooo cuuuuuuute!

  16. πŸ˜€ I saw the note on Lamannia about the release of kobold pets. I’m just waiting with Turbine Points in hand to get one to follow my barbarian around. ^_^

    Eeee, and thanks for pinging my picture. ^_^

  17. Ugh! I despise kobolds almost as much as I hate orcs.

What do you think?
