April 11, 2019
Blizzard released a preview of what's coming in Patch 8.2, Rise of Azshara. Hosted by Senior Game Designer Jeremy Feasel, the livestream covered many new upcoming features, including a brief glimpse of new pets! [source]

Pet Battles In 8.2
We're looking forward to tons of new collectible pets and Pet Battle content in the next major content patch.

Patch 8.2 - new gnome-bot pet and slug pet plus other loot
Here is some pet-related content that was mentioned in today's preview.

  • 2 new zones with new rewards, drops, and Timeless Isle-style rarespawns (longer timers, some with unique spawn mechanics, a few very rare)
  • New Pet Dungeon - Stratholme!
  • 2 new Island Expeditions with new rewards
  • A new mechanical 'alarm-o-bot' pet from Mechagon, and a slug pet from Nazjatar (pictured above)
  • Holiday updates, including Brewfest
  • ...and more?!

Patch 8.2 PTR begins next week
Note that a few features previewed may not directly tie into Pet Battles, however there's a possibility it's related. There is likely even more content and pets to be discovered as the PTR progresses.

Speaking of the PTR... Patch 8.2 PTR begins next week! We can't wait to get a firsthand look at all of the upcoming pets and Pet Battle adventures, so stay tuned.

Patch 8.1.5 Live This Week: Raiding With Leashes VI & More!

March 12, 2019
Patch 8.1.5 - New pets and more!
Patch 8.1.5 is live this week. There are many new pets to collect from Raiding With Leashes VI, the Darkmoon Faire, and more. [source]

New Pets
8.1.5 offers 20 new pets. A handful will not be collectible right away, and collectors will need to wait for the next associated in-game event.

  • 12 new Raiding With Leashes VI pets
  • 3 new Darkmoon Faire pets
  • 4 new Children's Week pets
  • 1 new quest reward

Check out all 20 new pets!

Raiding With Leashes VI
The next set of Raiding With Leashes pets is here! Defeat bosses in the following Pandaria raids for a chance to collect new pets:

  • Mogu'shan Vaults
  • Terrace of Endless Spring
  • Heart of Fear

There are 11 dropped pets that are Bind On Pick Up but cageable, and can drop from LFR raid difficulty and higher.

Collecting all of these pets will complete the achievement Raiding with Leashes VI: Pets of Pandaria, which awards the adorable and unique Happiness pet (pictured right)!

Darkmoon Faire
The Darkmoon Faire has already come and gone for this month, however starting next month there will be 3 new companions to collect. Enjoy the faire in style with fun balloons!

3 new Darkmoon Faire balloons

Each balloon companion (pictured above) will cost 90 Darkmoon Faire tickets each, is Bind On Pick Up, cannot be caged, and cannot battle.

Children's Week
The denizens of Kul Tiras and Zandalar will be celebrating Children's Week this year. There will be 4 new battle pets (one pictured left) to collect during the event in May.

Level 110+ characters can earn these pets by completing the Battle For Azeroth Children's Week quest chain. This can be done on both Alliance and Horde. The quests are not account-wide so they should be doable on multiple characters, making collecting all four pets during the same event possible.

Max level characters can complete a short quest chain to earn the neat mechanical parrot, Feathers (pictured right).

To begin the quest, pick up the breadcrumb quest from an NPC on the main boat at each faction's main hub in Battle For Azeroth. This quest should lead to Kelsey Steelspark (Alliance) or Trade Prince Gallywix (Horde). Players will need to have completed the 8.0, 8.1, and 8.1.5 War Campaign storylines first.

The quests continue the story of two particular characters that appeared in the Before the Storm book. For a full walk-through (spoiler alert!), check out Wowhead's Alliance and Horde overview of the quest chain.

Return of the Brawler's Guild
Last but not least, the Brawler's Guild is back. Tylarr Gronnden and Clock'em can be purchased after meeting the requirements (Brawler's Guild - Rank 3).

As with all content patches, there may be a number of undocumented and/or unintended adjustments. We'll have updates should we discover any additional changes, so stay tuned.

A few pet profiles may be incomplete and missing images — we're working on updating those as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience. If you find any other bugs, please report it via our Contact page or Site Bugs and Suggestions forum.

Pet Battle Strategies: Xu-Fu's Pet Guides

February 27, 2019
Battling NPCs and trainers is often inevitable when collecting battle pets. Sometimes it's fairly easy to come up with a winning team and strategy, but other times it can become a challenge.

Xu-Fu's Pet Guides
Xu-Fu's Pet Guides is an excellent resource for those extra-tough battles.

Created by Aranesh, the site is maintained by a few members in the Pet Battle community. Their passion for Pet Battles means only the best information and guides for fellow battlers!

Learn how to defeat NPCs in zones dating back to Pandaria, how to complete Pet Battle Dungeons, earn Pet Battle achievements, or learn more about which pets are good in Pet PVP.

Example of Xu-Fu's guides
Detailed guides are explained on a turn-by-turn basis (example pictured right). In the event you might be missing a pet in one of the strategies, there are often multiple possible strategies for any given battle.

Strategies are user-created and tested, and they range from matches using the least number of moves to carrying a low level pet in a trainer encounter. Many guides also include comments and notes that might be useful in especially tough battles.

In addition to guides and strategies, it provides additional features such as TD Scripts and even collection stats.

If you're stumped on a particular trainer battle, look no further than Xu-Fu's Pet Guides. It has a wealth of knowledge that can help in almost any pet encounter!

Patch 8.1.5 PTR: Updated RWL VI Pets & Feathers

January 31, 2019
A new build was released onto the PTR this week. It included updates to the upcoming Raiding With Leashes VI pets, plus a cute storyline that rewards the Feathers battle pet! [source]

Updated RWL VI Pets
The PTR Pet Journal was updated to include sources for the 11 Raiding with Leashes VI: Pets of Pandaria pets.

Here is a quick summary:

  • 5 pets come from Heart of Fear bosses
  • 4 pets drop off of Mogu'shan Vaults bosses
  • 2 pets come from Terrace of Endless Spring bosses

There are also reports that these pets are now dropping from raid bosses on the PTR.

Learn more about which bosses drop each RWL VI pet!

It's unknown if any of the RWL VI pets will require a specific raid difficulty for it to drop, similar to the Drudge Ghoul and Wicked Soul situation. Despite difficulty not being specified in the Pet Journal, the former pet drops only from Normal Lich King, while latter comes only from Heroic Lich King in Icecrown Citadel.

A New Mechanical 'Feathery' Friend
In Patch 8.1.5 players will be able to complete a short quest chain that rewards a new mechanical parrot, Feathers! (pictured right)

Wowhead has a quest walk-through, which wraps up 2 character story arcs from the Before the Storm book. The Wowhead guide includes SPOILERS, so read at your own discretion.

There are a couple prerequisites for the quest chain that rewards Feathers. The quests require player level 120, and Kelsey Steelspark as a follower (recruited during the Alliance War Campaign). It's currently unknown where/how the Horde version starts.

Once collected, Feathers will need an upgrade battlestone, as its base quality is uncommon (green). It is Bind On Pick Up, however it's cageable. If you don't have a character at max level it might be possible to find this pet on the Auction House in 8.1.5.

There are currently 20 new pets coming soon. Which one are you looking forward to the most?

Upcoming Battle of Dazar'alor Raid Pets

January 22, 2019
UPDATE: The Battle of Dazar'alor raid is live, and two pets plus the enchanting-crafted pet are now obtainable! The final dropped pet from the raid will be available next week.

Blizzard recently released an official preview and schedule for the upcoming raid, Battle of Dazar'alor. [source]

Battle of Dazar'alor Raid-Dropped Pets
There are 4 new battle pets (pictured below) that will come from this raid. Collectors will want to keep in mind the following pets and corresponding release dates.

4 new Battle of Dazar'alor Raid-Dropped Pets

Child of Pa'ku - drops from Conclave of the Chosen encounter

  • January 22 Normal and Heroic difficulties
  • February 12 LFR wing 2

Enchanted Tiki Mask - Enchanting recipe drops from King Rastakhan encounter

  • January 22 Normal and Heroic difficulties
  • February 12 LFR wing 2

Spawn of Krag'wa (Mythic only) - drops from Conclave of the Chosen encounter

  • January 29 Mythic difficulty

Thunder Lizard Runt - drops from Conclave of the Chosen encounter

  • January 22 Normal and Heroic difficulties
  • February 12 LFR wing 2

The majority of these pets are Bind on Pick Up but they can be caged. The Enchanted Tiki Mask enchanting recipe is BoP, however the pet it creates is Bind on Use.

It's unclear if the recipe and these pets, excluding Spawn of Krag'wa, will drop from all difficulties. We'll have to wait and see. May RNG be in your favor!

Patch 8.1.5 PTR: New Raiding With Leashes Pets and More

January 11, 2019
A new PTR cycle began earlier this week. Patch 8.1.5 PTR includes the next Raiding With Leashes installment, more Darkmoon Faire pets, and an update to the Children's Week in-game event. [source]

New Pets
New Darkmoon Faire balloon pets

There are currently 20 new pets on the PTR.

  • 12 Raiding With Leashes VI pets
  • 4 Children's Week pets
  • 3 Darkmoon Faire pets (pictured above)
  • 1 mysterious pet from an unknown source ("A Quest")

Check out 20 new 8.1.5 pets

Pets of Pandaria
The next Raiding With Leashes will include Mists of Pandaria raids.

Raiding with Leashes VI: Pets of Pandaria features 11 pet drops from Mogu'shan Vaults, Terrace of Endless Spring, and Heart of Fear raids. The PTR Pet Journal does not include additional details, such as which boss drops which pet yet, but it will likely be updated with this information in the near future.

Completing the meta-achievement will reward Happiness (pictured right), an adorable (and very upbeat!) sha. This perky little pet is very likely a nod to @Shaofhappiness, a popular online personality during Mists of Pandaria.

The upcoming Raiding With Leashes installment does not include the later MoP raids, Throne of Thunder and Siege of Orgrimmar. There are 10 pets that already drop from these two raids, but it's unknown if they will eventually be included in Raiding With Leashes, or if they'll remain as separate, standalone drops.

Darkmoon Faire, Children's Week, and More
As noted above, the Darkmoon Faire will include 3 new pets in Patch 8.1.5. These balloon companions will be purchasable for 90 faire tickets each. The pets cannot battle and cannot be caged or traded.

Children's Week will also be receiving an update à la Battle For Azeroth. 4 new pets were datamined, although it's still unclear which quest will reward them.

Last but not least, the Brawler's Guild will be making a return. So far there are no new pets included in the upcoming 'season', however Clock'em and Tylarr Gronnden will be available once again. Requirements for these two pets seem to be the same as previous seasons.

Will there be even more Pet Battle content in 8.1.5? We'll have to wait and see. Stay tuned — we'll have more updates and previews of upcoming 8.1.5 pet content!
