Recruit-A-Friend Returns: Rikki Now Available, Plus Pet Score Changes!

October 22, 2019

Players that recruit a friend (or themselves) can earn Rikki once their recruit adds at least one month of game time to the RAF account.

To get started, simply head to the Social window in-game and select the Recruit tab. Generate a recruitment link (link does not expire until a listed date) that you can send to friends or even yourself. Once eligible for your reward, head back to the Recruit tab in the Social window to claim Rikki.

Unlike the previous version of the RAF program, recruiters don't have to wait to collect this pet. Rikki can be redeemed as soon as the appropriate amount of game time is applied. (Note that his may not apply to additional RAF rewards, as game time seems to be added on a monthly basis.) This pet is then added directly to your Pet Journal.

With his safari hat, vest, and trusty banana, Rikki looks ready to join you on your adventures — will you be recruiting him to your team?

Pet Score Changes
You may have noticed a shift in realm and site rankings. Don't worry, you're not seeing things!

We've recently adjusted how the Pet Score is calculated. Each level 25 pet in your collection is now worth more, and non-combat pets have been given a small score boost.

Note that these changes are not retroactive, so you'll need to re-import your collection to see an updated Pet Score.

Patch 8.3 PTR: New Pets & Pet Dungeon

October 07, 2019
Patch 8.3 - Visions of N'zoth

Additionally, the 8.3 PTR is now up and running, and datamining has begun. Good news for Pet Battlers: a new Pet Dungeon and more pets to collect!

New Pets
There are currently 2 new pets coming in 8.3.

  • Void-Scarred Pup - Drop: Visions of N'zoth - Orgrimmar
  • Void-Scarred Toad - Drop: Visions of N'zoth - Orgrimmar

Check out 8.3 PTR datamined pets

The Visions of N'zoth is solo and group content where players experience an alternate Orgrimmar and Stormwind. Learn more about Visions of N'zoth here.

New Pet Dungeon
Battlers will have 2 new achievements to aim for in 8.3. Both revolve around Pet Dungeons, including a new one, Blackrock Depths! [source]

Shadow Stopper meta-achievement

The latter is a meta-achievement and requires the completion of all previously implemented Pet Battle Dungeons. It's likely the reward is only a placeholder.

We can only wonder what this meta-achievement will mean for the future of Pet Dungeons. Will we finally discover who the 'Shadowy Figures' are, and perhaps see a conclusion to the Pet Dungeon storyline? Will the meta-achievement serve as a wrap-up and Blackrock Depths will be the last dungeon adventure with our critter friends?

The Blackrock Depths Pet Dungeon is not yet available for testing on the PTR, so we'll have to wait and see. Stay tuned for a preview of what to expect inside.

We can't wait to see what else Patch 8.3 has in store for us! With this being an 'old god' patch, what kind of spooky battle pets are you hoping to collect?

BlizzCon 2019: Two New Murloc Pets

October 01, 2019
2019 BlizzCon in-game WoW rewards
BlizzCon 2019 attendees and Virtual Ticket holders can now collect two new murloc battle pets! [source]

Finduin and Gillvanas (pictured above) are now available to add to your collection. Simply purchase the 2019 Virtual Ticket and then check your Pet Journal in-game. (BlizzCon attendees will receive a code via email.) Go to your journal and click on the gift icons in the journal preview window to unwrap your new friends!

Although players will obtain both pets, these murlocs are faction-specific. Only Horde can summon Gillvanas, and Finduin is Alliance-only.

Both pets have some fun and interesting idle animations. Gillvanas will occasionally turn into a banshee and wail, while Finduin is equipped with his very own Power Word: Barrier animation. Each also summons their very own companion (Pets... for Your Pets?!, anyone?) — Finduin summons a wolf pup named Genji, and Gillvanas will call for an undead named Kevinos. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that the two murlocs interact with each other.

We'll be adding Finduin and Gillvanas to our database in the near future. Thanks for your patience.

Patch 8.2.5 Live This Week: 6 New Pets

September 24, 2019
Patch 8.2.5 - 6 new pets!
New pets were added with the latest patch, plus three fun cosmetic items for your bee battle pets! [source]

New Pets
Patch 8.2.5 included 6 new pets, however a few won't be collectible right away.

Flutter By Butterflies
3 new butterfly companions can be found in Stormsong Valley.

3 new butterfly pets

All three are drops from rares related to a new reputation, Honeyback Hive. Although the reptuation is Alliance-only, both factions can participate in the rare events that drop the battle pets.

Head to Tidebreak Summit in Stormsong Valley and look for a gold star on the minimap. The Honeyback Harvester event can spawn in multiple locations around the Summit, while the rare elite, Honey Smasher, appears along the northern coast.

A Nefarious Anniversary
Lil' Nefarian
This year marks 15 years of questing, adventuring, and of course, pet collecting in WoW!

Players that log in starting November 15th will receive a gift package from the in-game mail containing Lil' Nefarian (pictured right).

With this new addition, plus Lil' Deathwing, Onyxian Whelpling and Spawn of Onyxia, our very own Lil' Black Dragonflight is growing!

Recruit-A-Friend Returns
The Recruit-A-Friend program will be relaunched some time in Patch 8.2.5, but an official date hasn't been announced yet.

With the revamped RAF comes a new pet, Rikki (pictured left). Recruited friends (or yourself) that add at least one month of game time to their account will unlock this battle pet for the recruiter.

Learn more about the updated RAF program

Rikki is currently not listed in the Pet Journal at the time of this writing, however we expect this battle pet to show up once RAF has been updated on live servers. We'll add this pet to our database as soon as the data is available to us.

A Fibbing Feline?
Last but not least is Jenafur (pictured right), a cat battle pet with unknown origins. It's unclear how players will collect this pet; the Pet Journal only lists it as a drop from an NPC of the same name.

Jenafur has some interesting flavor text:
"This cat is known for her lies, ignore her sweet meows."

Is this another secret we need to uncover? We'll be sure to update once we learn more about this companion, so stay tuned!

New Cosmetic Items

3 new on-use items are now available for your bee companions.

These items drop from Jelly Deposits that spawn in Stormsong Valley. Only Alliance players that have unlocked the Honeyback Hive reputation can loot these objects. Players will need to have acquired Bumbles or Seabreeze Bumblebee to get started on this buzzing adventure.

Recruit-A-Friend Returning Soon: New Pet Reward

September 10, 2019
Blizzard recently announced that a revamped Recruit-A-Friend program will be returning. It's unclear when as an official date was not announced, but we'll likely see it appear in the near future. [source]

What's New?
The updated Recruit-A-Friend program will feature some new rewards. One of these is a fun battle pet, Rikki (pictured right).

Not much is known yet about this little monkey, however Wowhead has datamined its Pet Journal description:

"Rikki has a talent for sneaking in and out of all manner of small spaces, if bribed properly with figs."

To earn this battle pet, players will need to recruit a new friend, or recruit an account that has not had game time added to it in the past 2 years. After this recruit adds 1 month of game time or more to their account, Rikki should be claimable.

Other rewards include a new title, weapon enchant, tabard, cosmetic gear, and two 2-seater mounts. Learn more about these rewards in Blizzard's preview of the updated Recruit-A-Friend program.

What About Previous Rewards?
Unfortunately, it's unknown if the previous Recruit-A-Friend battle pets will be made available to collectors ever again.

4 Recruit-A-Friend pets

No information was provided regarding these pets, so at this time we can only speculate that they have been retired either temporarily or permanently. We certainly hope that it's the former and we'll see them again in the future.

New Pet Filter: WoW Classic

September 04, 2019
World of Warcraft Classic
We're happy to announce that we've added a new pet filter to help adventurers find and collect all of the fun and cute Classic vanity pets!

Simply head to our Filter Pets By... page and select the 'World of Warcraft Classic' filter, Include, and then Apply Filters. Browse through 46 49 collectible companion pets found in Classic. (We've added the original CE companions to the list.)

Check out the Classic pets filter

Note that the 'Classic' filter is separate from the 'Vanilla' filter, as shown in different tooltips. Sources for pets have changed over the years — the 'Vanilla' filter will reflect current Retail (BFA) pet sources. Meanwhile, the 'Classic' filter will have tooltips with information relevant to Classic WoW.

The Classic filter does not include Promotional pets, as many of these companions are no longer available. However, you can still view this list by searching using the 'Vanilla' and 'Promotional' filters.

Additionally, we've updated each Classic companion pet's profile page to include a new section listing the pet's 'Classic Source' plus original item tooltip. It can be found toward the bottom of each pet profile, just above the Notes.

For a quick overview of collectible Classic pets, you can also check out our Classic Vanity Pets Guide.

We hope everyone is enjoying WoW Classic and the adorable companions it has to offer. What better way to relive old memories and create some new ones than with a cute critter by your side!
