Kirin Tor Familiar
(size prior to Mists of Pandaria)

Kirin Tor Familiar is a companion that is obtained by completing the  Higher Learning achievement. It is given by Neutral Archmage Vargoth, last seen in Kirin'Var Village in Outland.

Once the achievement has been earned, an item called  [The Schools of Arcane Magic - Mastery] will be given that will teleport you to the spire. The pet is not bought but rather placed into the player's inventory after speaking to Vargoth.


elemental Elemental: Ignores all negative weather effects. Enemy pets can still gain the beneficial effects from weather when facing an elemental.

The idle animations for this companion are similar to the voidwalker's with the addition of sporadic arcane explosions periodically. Unlike the laser beam from  [Sleepy Willy]'s eye, there does not appear to be an obvious trigger.
