    What are you talking about? The preorders?

    Highest pack gets you : Panther + Wolf + spider

    Medium pack: Wolf + Spider

    Lowest pack: Spider

    You can also buy from ddo store:

    A Young kobold shaman: (comes in pinkish red, pale green and pale blue)

    An undead rat: (comes in purple with orange eyes, gray with yellow eyes, and black with whitish eyes)

    Also, if you went to PAX you could win a Winter Wolf puppy for a companion as well. Or, participate in a contest here in the forums that Cordovan started. Contest is over now though.

    Seems likely that they are talking about Druids.

    The thread title says "animal companions"

    Druids get transformations (wolves, bears, elementals)
    So far, they dont get familiars like in pnp. As far as I know.

    but according to pax interview, druid are getting animal companion like artificer.. and its known to have wolf type at least.. which is why i ask.

    p.s. the recording version of the interview can be found on ddo cast.

    I'm not sure if they've said much at all beyond that they will have companions. I hope there are a few options.

    ^^ This ^^

    Although when artificers came out there was some hinting around that other types might be in the cards for the future.

    I want a full Tarot deck, of course.

    Druids WILL have a companion similar to the artificer that will advance as the druid advances,
    Panther cub for sure, might be other choices as well.

    The druid animal summons spell at high level includes some very big cats, might be others as well.



    Druid forms - Wolf, Bear, Winter Wolf (high level), Dire Bear (high level), Fire Elemental (level ?)
    water elemental (level?)

    Casting spells in animal form - Yes ...BUT depending on the form some spells will be
    unavailable or in some cases, more powerful. Flame strike cast as a fire elemental has more mojo :-P

    It would not surprise me if the animal forms druids get will also be available as companions, afterall the animations would already be done.

    And 90% chance it starts off looking just like the cosmetic pet we got for pre-ordering that is labeled "Druid's Wolf Companion"
