World of Warcraft – How to get Stinker the Skunk Companion Pet in WoW
Stinker is a cute skunk pet who does more than look cute in World of Warcraft. If you’ve been playing WoW for a while, you’ve probably noticed that Blizzard, the company behind this MMORPG, has put out all kinds of clues about movies, stories, and real-life people.
When you have engineering as one of your professions, you will have to speak to Zebig or Lebowsky, depending on whether your character is a member of the Horde or the Alliance. Would you like to buy the biggest bags in the game? Then head to Paris, sorry Haris Pilton. You will find this elegant blood elf vendor at the bar called “The World’s End Tavern” in Shattrath City.
A Pulp Fiction-inspired quest is called “Zedd’s Probably Dead”, and if you look around the game, you’ll find more of these subtle clues.
Stinker is no exception to this rule. It’s actually inspired by an old cartoon character by the name of Pepe Le Pew. Pepe Le Pew was a French skunk created by Warner Brothers. She always fell in love with a black cat, who had a white stripe on its back, often with paint. Pepe would then mistake the cat for another skunk.
In the game, Stinker is also known for his strange attraction to black cats.
You get Stinker as a reward for achievements
If you collect pets in WoW, you will receive various achievements. One of the first will likely be the achievement “Can I keep it?” You get it, when you get your first companion pet. The next achievement in this series is called “Lots of Pets”, and you get it for having 15 unique companions.
After that, and if you keep collecting, you will get the “Pet Plethora” for 25 non-combat pets. Right now, you can get 149 different pets, but you will get your next achievement for just a third, that is 50 pets. This achievement is called “Buy Smart, Buy Pet … Smart”, and when you have obtained it, you will receive a reward in your mailbox.
The reward is the “Stinky Pet Carrier”, and when you open it, you will find Stinker inside. In case you were wondering, yes, there are more pet achievements after this one. If you collect 75 pets, you will get “Lil ‘Game Hunter” and a cute fawn as a reward. And that should be easy now, with 149 pets available.
