For those of you that registered for the Mountain Dew Game Fuel website, you can now claim your Battle Bot pet. All you need to do is visit the Game Fuel site and click on the “claim your Battle Bot Pet” link, or something to that effect. I did it last night before I went to bed, so I can’t recall exactly what it said, but the link’s pretty visible.
After that, just log in to your battle.net account and you’re done. Next time you log into WoW check your mail and you’ll find a key in there which will teach you how to summon your Battle Bot pet.
Once you get your pet, you can then log in to the Mountain Dew Game Fuel site each day to claim fuel for your Battle Bot pet. You can refuel your pet each day with either Horde Red or Alliance Blue fuel. When Battle Bots with opposite color fuels encounter each other apparently they go nuts and try to destroy one another. I’m assuming they’re a little like the Clockwork Rocket Bot, but we’ll see tomorrow I suppose.
You’re only allowed to claim one item per login per day, so you can get your Battle Bot today but you can’t fuel it until 12 am tomorrow. I imagine it’s going to be bedlam in Dalaran this week once everyone get their Battle Bots fueled up and ready for battle.
If you’re into non-combat vanity pets, then you’re going to want this. If you haven’t registered for the pet yet, then just go to http://www.mountaindewgamefuel.com/ or just click the blue Mountain Dew banner that’s on this website. It only takes a few minutes to register and it doesn’t cost anything. After you’ve registered you can start earning these token thingies that you can then use as contest entries for all sorts of fun prizes. I’ve just been going all in for the Alienware Notebook, but there’s lots of other cool stuff you can win as well.
