With Battle for Azeroth coming soon, World of Warcraft dataminers are already digging up juicy bits through the upcoming expansion for a frankly alarming rate. Another new item continues to be dug up now, though this has people wondering if it’s a promotional item, and if so, what which means for a somewhat dormant Blizzard series.
Baa’l is often a disturbingly adorable demon goat pet, with flavour text reporting “Not much will known about it otherworldly minion.” You can get a better take a look at him via Wowhead. With an allowance for apostrophes and animal punnery, Baal can be a name that certainly evokes Blizzard’s demon-focused franchise.
After years anticipating any substantial announcement, Diablo fans at the moment are clinging to little Baa’l with hope it means some form of announcement to the franchise is on how. Baa’l is actually a potential promotional item for anything from a Diablo 3 expansion with a Diablo 2 remaster or maybe Diablo 4. It could mean Baal (the Diablo character) is arriving in Heroes with the Storm. Or it might mean next to nothing.
The a very important factor we know for sure is really a demonic pet is built for WoW, and any situation that could possibly indicate can be a matter of pure speculation. Look forward to BlizzCon 2018 for the time being.
