Penguins in the Wild – Pixel Penguin Edition

Penguins of Azeroth

It’s the weekend, y’all! It was a long week for me, what about you? I started riding the Metro into downtown. While it’s saving me money and time, it is a lot of people for me to deal with in an enclosed space. I think I’ll need this weekend to recharge my be-pleasant-to-people module. On to this week’s “Penguin in the Wild!”

There’s a little game that I play called World of Warcraft. I definitely don’t spend as much time in the game as I used to, but I still get in a few hours a week. The majority of my game time I spend raiding with my guild, Foederati of Aggramar.

Back in November of 2008, Blizzard Entertainment released an expansion of World of Warcraft called Wrath of the Lich King. This expansion introduced a land called Northrend, and do y’all know what I was most excited about? That’s right, Northrend had penguins!

Glacier Penguin

These cute little fellows are in Icecrown. They have bluish-green eyes and a nice crest. In fact, all the penguins featured today have crests, because they are all pretty much the same model. They have slight differences in pixels here and there. Let’s just enjoy the nice screenshots.

Fjord Penguin

Another awesome penguin found in the Howling Fjord.

Tundra Penguin

These guys are in the Borean Tundra. They have red eyes.

Pengu is a penguin that you can buy from a couple of vendors in Northrend. You can then summon him at any time and he will follow you around. These are companion pets of which there are hundreds of varieties available to collect. Gotta catch ’em all!


Mr. Chilly

Blizzard handed Mr. Chilly out back in 2009. He was an incentive given to players to merge their World of Warcraft accounts with a account. He has blue eyes and is my favorite penguin in the game.

Penguins I’m not going to look for

King Ping – a rare penguin in the Howling Fjord. I flew around for a bit, but I’m not waiting around all day for a penguin to spawn.

Darkmoon Penguin – a penguin on the shores of Darkmoon Island. You can only get to this island when the Darkmoon Faire is active. I’m not going to wait for that to include it in this post. (He looks a lot like the Fjord penguin.)

Doopy – an elite battle pet in Icecrown. Battle pets are Blizzard’s version of Pokémon. I did not catch them all, and I don’t do elite pet battles.

Hungry Penguin – a penguin in Zul’Drak that looks like all the others!

I hope y’all enjoyed this digital version of Penguins in the Wild. I’ll be back Monday with a PenguinCraft post. Now I need to figure out what kind of penguin to create!
