Laen seems to have the RNG luck when it comes to pets. The kicker is it only happens if he doesn't get gear upgrades. Last week in Throne of Thunder he didn't get any upgrades for ret spec, but his last lucky coin roll netted him this:
Tonight's Wing Four of Siege of Orgrimmar was rather awful. It wasn't a fresh run to begin with and there were many wipes and tank departures and Laen was healing his heart out. No gear upgrades, not even those shoulders he's been coveting (partly for mog purposes I'll admit it, even if they would be an upgrade) But the paragons were nice enough to drop a friend for him.
