Considering the fact this offers one, balanced breed choice, I rate it lower than the Blue Clockwork Rocket Bot which offers a choice of three, including one that grants 325 speed at level 25 / rare. Overall, valuable for the completist, but a bench-warmer when up against other more versatile mechanicals. Sorry Clockwork Rocket Bot... you're obsolete in the era of Pet Battles!

The droprate is NOT 1 in 68 for the Clockwork Rocket Bot.  I've been doing the dailies pretty much from day 1 of this year (2012) on 12 toons, so over 80 times so far, and it's dropped 7-8 times for me.  (I'm actually trying to get either a 2nd Lumpy or the Winter's Veil dagger. *sighhh*)


That being said, I wish you all good luck with this one, & hope I get some luck for my own quests.  If not, I'll see you on WRA or on the AH!

I'm saying this, knowing a bunch of people are gonna down rate this

Yet again,Blizz bows out to the babies of this game complaining about something, I played this game in 2007 so I got this pet, and I was happy to show it off, wasnt it enough that they released the Blue-Rocket Bot,it served the same purpose, but being a different color still made the 2007 one special,I have accepted that I will never go to a Blizz-Con, nor will I get a TCG pet,but I don't cry for Murlocs to be available in game

This now drops from the 2011 Winter Veil daily! I got it and my achievement for 2007! Was pretty happy. This is one I thought I'd never get.

I used to have this one on my excluded list, but then two of my alts, a hunter and mage, got it this year, so I came back and moved it to the collecting area. I'm quite surprised and pleased by this availability, and I hope many more pets that are currently unobtainable are brought back into the game. Owlaf got her lump of coal already while the alts got this robot... guess Owl still has a lot of farming to do! Keeping my feathers crossed!

It's always nice when blizzard throws in surprises like this. I had pretty much accepted that I would never get this companion, and was confused when I saw the old achievment pop up when I got it on my main Collector. now I am going through all my 80+ characters to get this pet and Lumpy

Joined WoW the last day this pet was out, was a n00b and didn't go to IF during that time (Hence didn't know about the presents) :(

Oh well. (Update: I got it this Winter Veil, hurrah)


I don't recall people crying for wanting this one back, this was a rather unexpected thing when people found out it dropped from the daily bag. I could agree if it was the Amani Warbear or something, but not this.

I have this. But sadly on a character I haven't played in years. Wish it was BOA, dueling rocket bots was fun. (And the blue one just isn't the same)

A little persistance pays off. Even though I had the achievement for the pet, I deleted the pet item since I wasn't collecting pets at the time. My first request to have it restored got denied, however the second time round it got restored! So try again a few months later if your request got denied, you might be as lucky as I was :)

The Warbot just attacks with his fists, but Rocket Bot is packing heavy artillery! Being a Goblin Engineer, I live for this kind of explosive insanity!!!

I got this pet soon after I started playing WOW and wasn't big into collecting pets. Subsequently I ended up discarding him because i needed the slot pets used to take up in your bags. If there was anyone who did this like me. A quick report to Blizz will get him back for you. I wrote them a note explaining my situation. And had him mailed back to my toon, with a note basically saying they try to help out where they can, but don't report lost items to often.

This mechanical warrior is a favorite gift during Winter Veil. Batteries not included, but rockets definitely are!
