Trinkets can be fun and surprise you - there are quite a number of trinkets that on activation have a companion who will fight for you or... just hang around and do silly things. Here are a few that I've collected whilst redoing all the zones in Cataclysm.
Dog Whistle, which drops from Houndsmaster Locksey in Scarlet Monastery, summons this cool looking mastiff, who aggros stuff. I was reading Ancient's post about how she'd be a Dog Vendor and it reminded me of this trinket.
Horn of the Traitor, summons the Spirit of Cliffwatcher Longhorn, and forces this Grimtotem spy to fight for you. You get it as a reward from the quest of the same name.
Commander's Badge summons this Netherwing Ally to fight at your side. This is a quest reward from Hail, Commander! in Shadowmoon Valley down in the Netherwing area.
Gus' First Aid Kit (a reward from the quest Gargantapid in Tanaris) summons a Goblin Nurse. He's a funny little thing, and will say one of these things:
- Say "Ahhhhh".
- Take two potions and call me in the morning.
- Turn your head and cough twice.
- When was your last check up?
- Where does it hurt? (LOL, human medics say this in Starcraft!)
- You should consider losing some weight.
Cannonball Runner, which drops from Willey Hopebreaker in Stratholme. It shoots at enemies in front of you.
These stupid servants were misbehaving. I couldn't get them to stand properly for a picture. Very disobedient servants! These 3 servants from the House of Barov come when you use the Barov Servant Caller and are supposed to fight, cook and clean for you. Lazy bums did none of that. You get this trinket from the quest Barov Family Fortune in Scholomance.
This Windmill Lance is summoned from Toy Windmill, a quest reward from the Ballad of Maximillan in Un'goro Crater. Boy is it massive! And it does attack for you as well.
Vanquished Tentacle of C'Thun and the Vanquished Clutches of Yogg-Saron are cool trinkets summoning these giant beauties! They drop from their vanquished old gods respectively.
Those are just some of the TRINKETS that I have that summon little allies/companions. If you can think of any more (they have to be trinkets! Yes, I know the Bloodsail Admiral's hat can summon a parrot but it's not a trinket!) feel free to drop me a line or a reply. Have fun playing with your new friends!
