The majority of these models will come in multiple colors, so this is just an example of the types of battle pets you'll encounter in 9.2. Which pet are you looking forward to collecting the most?

Sources and Pet Families
Collecting pets in 9.2 seems to be fairly straightforward, although we don't know enough about the new profession (Protoform Synthesis) yet.

  • Profession - 27
  • Wild - 22
  • Achievement - 1
  • Quest - 1
  • Drop (treasure) - 1

And last but not least, the current family breakdown of upcoming collectible pets is as follows:

  • Aquatic - 11
  • Beast - 12
  • Critter - 12
  • Dragonkin - 0
  • Elemental - 3
  • Flying - 9
  • Humanoid - 1
  • Magic - 4
  • Mehcanical - 0
  • Unead - 0

It's understandable that Dragonkin wouldn't be found in the new zone of Zereth Mortis - the setting doesn't quite fit the pet family. However, it's a little strange to miss out on Mechanical battle pets considering the otherworldly technological themes of 9.2.

We'll just have to wait and see if anything changes over the course of the PTR.

Is Trub'ul In Trouble?
Trub'ul (pictured right) was first datamined during the 9.1.5 PTR, but it was confirmed that this green feline was added prematurely and intended for a future patch. Interestingly, this pet can no longer be found in the Pet Journal on both live and the PTR. It's possible Trub'ul will reappear in a future PTR build, but is it safe to say this pet seems to be quite the troublemaker so far?

Although specific battle pets weren't named, some creatures were teased that have pet-potential (or at least, we think so).

Even more "proto"-creatures can be spotted in the 9.2 Developer Preview video. What type of creature are you hopeful to see as a collectible pet in 9.2?

A release date for Patch 9.2 has not been announced yet. Once the PTR opens up for testing, we'll be sure to hop right in to check out all the upcoming battle pets, so stay tuned!

New 9.1.5 Murloc Pet — Gurgl

November 09, 2021
Collectors have discovered an adorable new murloc pet in Patch 9.1.5. Meet the cool, blue baby Gurgl! (pictured right)

To collect this pet, simply head over to Breanni's shop in Dalaran (Broken Isles, Legion) and speak with her. She'll have a quest, Pets Detective, that will send you on a short adventure in the uninstanced Eye of Azshara zone. The final quest involves a Pet Battle, so make sure you have a team of 3 ready!

For a full walk-through, check out Wowhead's Gurgl guide. Happy collecting and battling, everyone!

Patch 9.1.5 Live This Week: Updates to Battlestones & Pet Leveling

November 02, 2021
UPDATE: According to Lead Game Designer Jeremy Feasel, Trub'ul was added to the Pet Journal prematurely and is intended for future content. [source]

Patch 9.1.5!
Patch 9.1.5 brings changes to how battlestones fuction, reduced Ultimate battlestone price, and pet leveling updates. [source]

Battle-Training Stone Changes
Upcoming changed Flawless Battle-Training Stone
Flawless, family-specific, and Fel-Touched Battle-Training Stones will now grant a flat experience amount to battle pets.

  • Flawless and family-specific Battle-Training Stones now provide a flat 2,000 experience (was the amount required to gain one level).
  • Fel-Touched Battle-Training Stones now provide a flat 10,000 experience (was the amount required to gain five levels).

Unfortunately, the Safari Hat and pet treats do not stack or impact experience rewarded from battlestones.

Additionally, the price of the Ultimate Battle-Training Stone has been reduced.

  • Ultimate Battle-Training Stones now cost 35 Polished Pet Charms (was 60).

These updates mean it will take fewer battle-training stones to level a pet from 1 to 25 (compared to pre-9.1.5), however it will still be ever-so slightly cheaper to purchase one Ultimate Battle-Training Stone to level a pet to max instantly.

Pet Experience From Battles
Good news for those that prefer to gain pet experience from battling — more experience (if certain requirements are met)!

  • Battling wild pets with a team of comparable-level pets now provides double experience. Pets on your team are eligible for this bonus if no pet on your team is more than two levels higher than any pet in the wild team.
  • The experience penalty for a pet dying has been reduced to 50% (was 100%). Pets still need to be active for at least one round to be eligible to earn experience from a battle.
  • All pet experience earned in battles is increased by 50%.
    To compensate, the Pet Battle Bonus Event buff Sign of the Critter has been reduced to 100% (was 200%). The net effect of this is that pet experience gained during the Pet Battle Bonus Event will remain unchanged from current values.

Don't forget to put on your Safari Hat and give your companions a Pet Treat and Lesser Pet Treat. These items stack with the wild pet battle changes!

No "Trouble" Here
We previously reported a new pet discovered on the 9.1.5 PTR, Trub'ul (formerly known as Trouble, pictured right), but it seems this pet is either still a Work In Progress (WIP), a secret that must be discovered, or currently unavailable to players. We'll have to wait and see if this little green feline makes an appearance in the future. We certainly hope so!
