Get the Zipao Tiger pet for World of Warcraft from Amazon Prime Gaming!

World of Warcraft pet enthusiasts can now pick up the Zipao Tiger pet for free through Amazon Prime Gaming. The Zipao Tiger pet is available through October 24. This pet was originally only available via promotions in Asia, and then was an updated reward through the Recruit-a-Friend program until the 2019 revamp. Now everyone can get one for their collection for the next four weeks.

Diablo 4 fans can also pick up two new weapon appearances for free from Amazon Prime Gaming: the Vermilion Dark Tome and Vermilion Bolt Thrower, which are available through October 19. Note however that the Dark Tome is restricted to Necromancers and Sorcerers to transmog, and the Bolt Thrower is exclusively for Rogues. Hopefully Druids and Barbarians won’t have to wait long to get their own Vermilion weapons.

And if transmog isn’t your thing, don’t worry — there’s something new each month with rewards for Diablo 4, Hearthstone, Overwatch 2, and World of Warcraft. There’s no hint of what else might be coming in the future, but most of the offerings so far have either been older paid mounts, old TCG items, hero skins, or things like card packs and currency for the games which feature those.

As long as you’re paying for Prime membership, you can claim free rewards in the gaming program, so let’s take a look at what’s available on Prime Gaming and how to claim it.

How to claim the Tabard of Brilliance, Diablo 4 transmog, and more from Prime Gaming

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:

  1. Login to your Twitch account.
  2. 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.
  3. 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:

  • Diablo 4: Get the Vermilion Dark Tome and Vermilion Bolt Thrower through October 12, 2023.
  • World of Warcraft: Get the Zipao Tiger pet through October 24, 2023.
  • Hearthstone: Get one random standard Epic card through October 18, 2023. Rewards for packs or cards cycle through Prime Gaming regularly, so if you miss out this time around, there will likely be another for you to collect soon.
  • Overwatch 2Get the Owl Guardian Mercy Epic Skin through October 19, 2023.
