Dancing Fox!

Posted: by Frostheim

Note: okay, replaced the music and reuploaded again — hopefully we’re now working.

The fox pet has, in addition to it’s standard special ability, a spell called “Play.” This is totally awesome. I wish all pets had a version of this.

    Youtube won’t let me play video “This video contains content from WMG, who has blocked it in your county on copyright grounds.”

    I live in California, fyi.

  2. dpoyesac says:

    Who is WMG, what content do they own, and why are they blocking me from watching this video?

    This is ‘merica, dammit! I thot this wuz a free country, huh?

  3. Juniez says:

    AWSOMESAUCE! Cant wait to get my own dancing fox! :D

  4. Barrah says:

    Ugh, Warner Music Group has blocked it.

  5. Anansi says:

    I liked the music, who is that Frost?

  6. Frostheim says:

    The music is Vittrad by Garmarna. I originally had the snoopy song on there (Linus & Lucy) but that was entirely blocked : (

  7. QueenOfBlades says:

    Warner Music Group? WTF.

    Anyway, I really hope they add more of this type of stuff it’s LONG overdue. When I dance I want my pet to dance dammit. Oh, and I want my pet back by my side when I mount up, I miss that.

  8. Kokiri says:

    How bout we get a non music version so we can see the cool effect? <3

  9. Anansi says:

    Garmarna, that’d explain why I liked it!

  10. Akshrahl says:

    @QueenOfBlades: Aye. I feel so… empty when I mount up and don’t see my buddy behind me. I’ll even mount up on the PvP Wolf Mount specifically because it looks just like my pet.

    boo and hiss to WMG

  12. Frostheim says:

    I’m very curious that people aren’t able to see it at all — the worst thing that should happen is it has no audio. But, in the US, I can see and hear it. I have no idea what’s going on with YouTube at the moment. : (

  13. Moofius says:

    The video works for me, and it looks so cute :)

    I hope every pet will be able to dance.

  14. Dianth says:

    First it was the WMG message, then it was private and now YT is saying it’s been removed.

  15. Dianth says:

    Working a-okay now!

  16. Kokiri says:

    Looks fixed to me! MOAWR hunter pet dances!!

  17. Ryshat says:

    LOL! I hope he’s dosed with Pappa Hummel biscuits, cause he’s HUGE.

  18. Strizer says:

    That is just the cutest thing. I love it. I hope it’s implemented in other pets too, would be hilarious to bring a gorilla out with Play =D

  20. Bindura says:

    Cry don’t have play on my bear…

  21. Spinifex says:

    same thing as the wolf dance, hopefully other pets (besides cats and bears) will be able to dance or something similar to that

  22. anon says:

    whats the song where it says ” ima beast stalker, giant stalker…” etc at the start?

  23. Valacia says:

    oh baby I hope they do this for more pets, I’ve wanted something like this forever!!

  24. Wirelez - Crushridge says:

    There is one other pet that dances My Grimtotem Spirit Wolf dances if it has party grenades thrown at it.

  25. Qumquat says:

    That is all kinds of awesome!

  26. kayoon says:

    rofl that is awesomesauce!

  27. windgard says:

    Did you change the music again? When I play it the background music is the outro from the album version of The Boatman by The Levellers, not Vittrad by Garrmarna. If that’s the levellers covering Vittrad then it’s been adapted and altered so much that it’s become a differnt tune, but hey, thats the folk process. Anyway, very cool video, lets hope there are more similar fun pet spells to come.

  28. DarkDragoon says:

    too cool for words…i wanted a fox before. now i HAVE to have one.

  29. Gossamer says:

    Nice! I’ve been hoping for pet dances since they added them fro Druid bear and cat forms. This is a step in the right direction!

  30. Hayley says:

    Awesome. I did feel your toon should have joined in though ;-)

  31. Ruth says:

    Actually I do not like it :-(

    I looked forward to tame a fox because they look very good, but I want a !combat! pet not a little idiot standing on its hind legs.

  32. Dr. Cynicism says:

    I want to see this feature combined with tamable druids! Can you imagine it?! Oh I can… I certainly can my friends. Taming a druid against their will, and then making them “play” like idiots = total WIN.

  33. Enthis says:

    DO. WANT.

    This is just so totally awesome!

    /Wants cataclysm 100% more now

  34. KT says:

    Well…if someone has the party grenade and you have a cat tamed, the cat will do the druid cat dance..

    I wish all pets could “play” that’s just awesome.

  35. Frostheim says:

    @Windgard Yup, had to change the music again, since apparently putting Garmarna on blocks the entire video in the US. So we started off with the snoopy dance music (Linus & Lucy), then Vittrad, and finally the Boatman outro.

  36. Hulder says:

    This is SO awesome :-D

    P.S. I’m in Ireland, and at least with the current music it’s working fine over here.

  37. Phypa says:

    And now, every Cataclysm guild kill pic will feature a dancing fox…

  38. Chacha says:

    OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!! Kawaii KAWAII!!! ^^
    It’s so adorably unbelievably cute! :D

  39. Jindrax says:

    I slap thee in the face, new dances! I’ll roll BM and command a RP event involving a circus.

  40. Alethiia says:

    This actually made me laugh out loud. Repeatedly. Love it : D

  41. Sofeladese says:

    In the words of the girliest girl I know:


  42. rev says:

    Thats clearly the best thing on beta, screw focus or chimera shot heals! :)

  43. Alixana says:

    @Ruth: You did notice the intro text says “The fox pet has, in addition to it’s standard special ability, a spell called ‘Play.’” IN ADDITON TO, not instead of. The fox family will have a normal combat ability, just like every other pet family. It just also has this extra, non-combat, fun ability called “Play.” Why on earth the fact that a pet has an extra ability on top of its combat ability should make you no longer want it is beyond me. If you don’t like the dance, don’t use it.

  44. Undra says:

    That is friggin awesome how you managed to time the dancing to the music. Or at least found something with the right beat. Well done!

  45. Brucey_MM says:

    That’s like the most awesome thing ever :)

  46. Aldrong says:

    THAT…. IS…. AWESOME!!, can u imagine what the devilasour play would be? very amusing probably

  47. Jamz2k says:

    What was cool with the video is the music matched the dance fairly well. Looks interesting. Looking for ward to it.

  48. Stoop of Hakkar says:

    I am so easily, happily amused.

  49. Forresst says:

    Did you do your own remix of the Boatman? I’m looking for it on iTunes but all I can find is the slower, more acoustic, original.

  50. Shaelynia says:

    I’ve been saying for a long time I would love it if my cats had the druid cat dancing animation, which I think is totally adorable. Maybe that will actually happen now? I didn’t foresee this being given to us, so I’m excited about it!

  51. Diggler says:

    Reminds me of this video:

  52. Ardor says:

    I am SO glad pets can dance now, and sleep. So important to the game.
