Baby murloc companionsEdit
- contains Murky, a blue baby murloc.
- contains Gurky, a pink baby murloc.
- contains Lurky, a white baby murloc.
(There are also green, orange and purple skins for baby murlocs in the game files.)
As companions, they do not aid you in battle. They occasionally burst into dance, complete with top hat and cane, in an amusing tribute to the character Michigan J. Frog. To listen to the baby murloc singing download this MP3.
Both factions have a sample of the blue baby murloc small pet, Murky (labeled Murky), available. The Alliance sample is near the pond in The Forlorn Cavern section in Ironforge, and the Horde sample is on the dock in the fishing pond in the Valley of Honor section in Orgrimmar.
During BlizzCon 2005, cards with special codes were given out to attendees to obtain the Blue Murloc Egg in-game. This pet is only available to them, and the code is redeemable only once for a single character.
AllianceHow to obtain: (Alliance)
- To obtain Murky, head to The Forlorn Cavern section in Ironforge in the dwarven area, Dun Morogh.
- Head to the shore of the pond where Ransin Donner, a dwarf stands with Murky, the blue baby murloc small pet.
- Talk to him to enter your code.
HordeHow to obtain: (Horde)
From Blizzcon 2007 through sometime in the first half of 2008 both Ransin Donner and Zas'Tysh wore a murloc costume.
- Many would say that the Murlocs are filthy, slimy creatures with no greater purpose in life than to serve as expendable sparring partners for aspiring heroes. Do you believe this? Think again! Mindless killings and raids on their homes have left thousands upon thousands of Murlocs dead or wounded, and each day the slaughter continues.
- Have you ever invaded a Murloc settlement and drenched your blade in their green blood? Have you ever ended the life of one of these poor, defenseless creatures as it was desperately trying to escape back into the safety of a nearby river or the sea, the Murloc's true home? Yes? Then it is time you made up for the pain and suffering you have caused these gentle animals!
- Through the Murloc adoption program you will have a chance to get to know these fascinating and playful creatures from a whole new perspective. Many young Murlocs are left without their parents as pillaging gangs of so-called heroes eradicate entire tribes, leaving the unhatched Murloc eggs without protection against hungry crocolisks, raptors, and other dangers that threaten a young Murloc's life. Many kind souls have saved abandoned eggs from ravaged Murloc settlements, and you can help us hatch these eggs and care for your very own baby Murloc. If you have been given a special code that certifies you as a qualified Murloc handler, please follow the instructions below to turn in your code and to receive your new best friend in the World of Warcraft.
On September, 12th 2006 it was announced on the US forums that BlizzCon gift cards which were given on BlizzCon 2005 were going to expire on October, 28th 2006 at 12:01 AM PDT, though after many requests it was announced that all the murloc codes will be still active till further announcement and only the beta keys have been expired on October, 28th 2006.
In dialog, both Ransin Donner and Zas'Tysh both still offer to redeem the code for Murky as of June 6, 2008 (talked to them in-character).
