Imperial Silk Now Awards Pets Post Patch 5.1

Tailoring Pets From Silkworm Cocoon Daily

Imperial Silk's Silkworm Cocoon

The daily Tailoring cooldown, Imperial Silk, got a nice buff when we got Warcraft's Patch 5.1.  Prior to Patch 5.1, Imperial Silk was crafted and placed directly into your Tailor's bags.  After the launch of WoW Patch 5.1, Blizzard has changed the process up a bit.

Enter...The Silkworm Cocoon

The Silkworm Cocoon

The Silkworm Cocoon is a new intermediate step added into the creation of the Tailoring daily item, Imperial Silk.  Instead of just having the Imperial Silk added directly to your bag, you now get a Silkworm Cocoon.  Opening the Silkworm Cocoon you will find your single piece of Imperial Silk, but on the rare case you may also find a companion pet! 

That is correct!  When you craft your daily Imperial Silk, you also have a chance to be awarded one of two companion pets.  The 2 pets that can come from within the Silkworm Cocoon are:
  1. Imperial Silkworm (~17% chance)
  2. Imperial Moth (~2% chance)
The Imperial Silkworm is a green colored uncommon pet, while the Imperial Moth is a blue colored Rare pet.  Both of these pets are not bound to you and can be sold on the auction house.  The Silkworm Cocoon is the only source for these 2 pets, so Tailors have a unique gold making item with these 2 pets.

So make sure you don't forget to park that Tailoring alt in the Silken Fields and crank out those Silkworm Cocoons each day!

  1. Your post was the first I heard about this new pet, so I got on my tailor and dropped by Silken Fields (been neglecting it) and made some silk and got a moth! not sure how long it'll take to sell, the pet market is really fickle. Thanks for the heads up
