Generally available

The following companions are generally available to any player and, unless noted, the item from which they are learned is not soulbound. Once the item is used (to learn how to summon the companion), it is destroyed. Beforehand, however, the item may be freely traded to other players. Companions from world events and companions created by professions are excluded from this list, even though some of these may be traded freely to other players. Most of the companions on this list are the result of quests or random drops.

Some of the following companions are only sold by vendors from one faction, but they may be traded to the other faction via the Neutral AH if they are BoE.

No longer available

The following companions are no longer available in the game, except to those who received them previously. Common examples are rewards for purchasing the collector's edition of a game or participating in a real life event.

Collector's Editions

These companions are only available to players who bought the Collector's Edition of the game. They are not tradeable in any way. Players may only choose one companion, but each character on the same account can choose a different companion. As the item is bound to your account, it is now possible to have all three on one character.

These companions are only available to players that purchase the Collector's Edition of the Burning Crusade expansion pack. Only European players are able to obtain both companions for each character.

This companion is only available to players that purchase the Collector's Edition of the Wrath of the Lich King expansion pack.

This companion is only available to players that purchase the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty Collector's Edition.

This companion is only available to players who purchase the Collector's Edition of the Cataclysm expansion pack.

The Murky companion is only available to people who attended the BlizzCon event and worked on both US and European realms. Another baby murloc was made available to European players through conventions and competitions.

Arena Tournament

The Murkimus the Gladiator pet was given to all players who entered the 2009, 2010, or 2011 Arena Tournament and played at least 50 (or 200 for 2009) rated arena matches with a 3v3 arena team.
