How to get the Lil’XT companion pet for WoW through Amazon Prime Gaming
WoW pet collectors now have a chance to get the retired Lil’XT companion pet for free through Amazon Prime Gaming. This battle pet was originally available through the store but was retired back in January 2019 so until now you were out of luck if you wanted one. But through May 25, Amazon Prime subscribers (including anyone on the free trial) can claim this robot through Prime Gaming at no additional cost.
This is the second of many big Warcraft rewards this year, with something new each month. There’s no hint of what else might be coming, but if we see more TCG or retired store loot, there are lots of great options.
As long as you’re paying for Prime membership, you can automatically claim free rewards in the gaming program. Occasionally those rewards include extras like the Big Battle Bear, Hearthstone card packs, or Overwatch 2 skins, but to find out what the current rewards are, you can head straight to the Prime Gaming website. It lists all of the month’s free bonuses under the Games & Loot tab, including the in-game content and the completely free titles. Or, if you’re already watching Twitch on a browser, you can click on the crown tab at the top right of the screen. That will show you an entire menu of the current rewards. Clicking the “claim” button anywhere in that menu will send you to the Prime Gaming website.
Let’s take a look at what’s available on Prime Gaming and how to claim it.
How to claim the Lil’XT companion and other Prime Gaming rewards
Subscribe to Amazon Prime. First, to claim these rewards you need to be an Amazon Prime subscriber. If you aren’t already a subscriber, but really want the loot, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial or, if you aren’t eligible for the trial, sign up for a month’s subscription. Subscriptions cost $140 per year or $15 per month, though sometimes Amazon offers discounts for new subscribers — currently there’s an offer to get your first three months at $7.49 per month. University students can get a six-month free trial and a discounted $69 per year annual membership after that. If you’ll use Prime’s other benefits or have to have the latest rewards, it could be worth it.
Link your Twitch and Battle.net accounts. You need to have your Twitch account linked to your Battle.net account, just like you need to get Twitch drops. Fortunately, linking your accounts is very simple:
- Login to your Twitch account.
- Go to the Battle.net Connections page. If you’re not already logged into your Battle.net account, you’ll be prompted to do so.
- Scroll until you find the Twitch option, and click +Connectand follow the instructions.
Claim your rewards on Prime Gaming. Log on to your Amazon account and go to the Prime Gaming page to find your rewards. Select your rewards and click “Get in-game content” to claim it. If you aren’t a Prime member or haven’t yet linked your Battle.net account, you’ll be prompted to do so.
The rewards should appear in-game once they’ve been claimed. Even if you’re in Prime on a free trial, the rewards you claim during that trial will be permanently connected to your account. And not just in one place; Prime rewards will go everywhere you play with your Battle.net account. Once your Prime membership ends, either because the free phase ends or because you end your time with the Amazon program, you won’t be able to keep claiming rewards, but anything you’ve already claimed is yours to keep.
Blizzard rewards available in Prime Gaming right now
The rewards in Prime Gaming will rotate regularly, changing over every month or sometimes every few weeks. Blizzard Entertainment titles regularly make appearances in the roster of rewards. Here’s what you can currently get for those games:
- World of Warcraft: Get the Lil’XT companion pet through May 25, 2023 — but be aware, this is only useable in retail WoW and isn’t available in Classic.
- Overwatch: Get 5 tier skips on the battle pass through May 17, 2023.
- Hearthstone: Get three standard packs through May 16, 2023. This reward cycles through Prime Gaming regularly, so if you miss out this time around, there will likely be another random card or pack for you to collect soon.
