Battle For Azeroth Adds 100+ Pets!

August 13, 2018
Battle For Azeroth is live

Battle For Azeroth is live this week, and adventures on Kul Tiras and Zandalar await — there are new battle pets to discover and collect!

New Pets In Battle For Azeroth
BFA adds 116 new pets! This is one of the largest number of pets available at the start of an expansion, coming in second only to Mists of Pandaria.

BFA achievement pets

Some highlights include:

  • 27 wild pets to capture
  • 7 profession crafted pets
  • 3 pets rewarded from achievements (pictured above)
  • 8 reputation pets
  • 32 pets from BFA vendors (includes the reputation pets)
  • ...and more!

With so many new pets, it's now possible to obtain Hearthy (reward from Master of Minions - collect 1000 pets).

Check out all BFA pets!

We're working on updating many pre-BFA pet profiles with images of the new models, plus updating the Pet Achievements Guide to include newer achievements. We plan on rolling out these updates in batches in the near future; thank you for your patience.

New Pet Battle Features In Battle For Azeroth

  • BFA Pet Battle World Quests (unlocked at level 120) scale to the highest level pet on a player's active pet team. It's unclear if this tech will be applied to pre-BFA content.
  • BFA Pet Battle encounters have new mechanics, such as "A powerful spell that summons a random Weather effect; Several additions to suite of Heals that will have increased effects based on your pet’s health; Aura effects that heal your pet (or damage the enemy pet) based on the last hit dealt".
  • Polished Pet Charm is a brand new currency that is used to buy consumables from the Pet Battle vendor, plus new pets and toys.
  • In case you missed out on it, the Pocket Pet Portal is now available on a BFA vendor for Polished Pet Charms.
  • There are 3 new fun companion pet toys in BFA - Laser Pointer for completing Battle on Zandalar and Kul Tiras achievement, plus Tiny Mechanical Mouse and Imaginary Gun which can both be purchased from BFA vendors for Polished Pet Charms.
  • Last but not least, a new cosmetic consumable, Ghostly Pet Biscuit (requires Honored with Order of Embers).

Notably missing at BFA's launch are the next Pet Battle Dungeon or Raiding With Leashes VI achievement. However, developer Jeremy Feasel noted in an interview with Forbes that there are plans for a new pet dungeon, the next Raiding With Leashes, as well as Family Familiar-style challenges. There's currently no specific date or patch set for these features. We can't wait to learn more as the expansion moves forward!

Thank you to Weena and Vephriel for volunteering their time to help update the WarcraftPets database with over 100 new pets and many revamped images. Thank you for your all of your hard work.

And a big, heartfelt thank you to all WarcraftPets users for your continued support. WarcraftPets wouldn't be possible without you.

We'll see you on Kul Tiras and Zandalar — happy collecting and battling!

Baa'l Found!

August 22, 2018
Baa'l is a pet added in Battle for Azeroth that came from an unknown Pet Battle encounter. It was a mystery...until now!

Thanks to the WoW Secret Finding Community, we now know how players can collect this little demon goat.

It's a lengthy 14 step process to collect 13 hidden pebbles located across Kul Tiras and Zandalar. Some are in very difficult to reach locations (be ready to use some consumables).

Check out Warcraft Secrets Community Guide to Baa'l

The final step is to find Baa'l and beat him in a Pet Battle. This NPC is a Legendary pet and has an overpowered ability, Murder the Innocent.

However, if anyone nearby summons out Uuna (and has completed her continued story) she will have an interaction with him and weaken Baa'l's stats and abilities significantly, making it possible to defeat him. For a non-combat companion, Uuna sure packs a punch with her wand!

Upon summoning this pet for the first time, Baa'l has something really ominous to say. The Secrets Finding Community speculates that this could be a hint at another mystery to solve, as the letters in Baa'l's foreboding statement create the anagram, "SEEK KNOWLEDGE". We'll have to see if this leads to anything.
