A boy and his (Winter Wolf Pup) dog
The Winter Wolf Pup is a special companion that is not available in the DDO store, and exists solely for the purpose of being swag handed out by Turbine at conventions. To get one, you had to attend Pax, Pax East, or GenCon. Or know someone who did.
Having said that, the developers gave out hundreds of them, maybe thousands, and I continue to see them everywhere in game. In fact, I wonder if there is anyone left who wants one of these but does not already have one?
Let’s find out.
I happen to have an extra code for a Winter Wolf Pup. To redeem it, you enter the code on your myaccount.turbine page. Next, you’ll find a special coupon in the inventory of each of your characters. Take the coupon to Caypenne Drop-Axe in the Harbor and she’ll exchange it for the Pup.
You also get a swag bag of greater experience and slayer boost potions, totally worthwhile even if you are ambivalent about cosmetic companions.
Only one of your characters can turn in the coupon for the Pup but all of your characters can turn in the coupon for a swag bag. Additional swag bags all contain lesser potions rather than greater ones. Still, free XP boosts, this is always a good thing.
Want to win? Just write a haiku about DDO or creature companions or this blog or anything you like that is even a little bit game-related and add it to the comments in this post.
That’s it, a simple haiku, doesn’t even have to be good (that wouldn’t be fair, none of mine are any good).
One haiku. One comment. One Winter Wolf Pup.
I will pick the winner randomly from all entries. I’ll keep the contest open till next Friday (to be precise, 7AM EST) and announce the winner that day. Expect daily reminders because I am just like that.
The whole thing expires December 31, so there’s no time to waste. Win this Pup and get it redeemed!
