Patch 7.2 PTR: New Pets and Pet Battle Dungeon

January 21, 2017
The PTR is up and running with the next patch, ready for testing. 7.2 will bring us 8 new pets, possibly new trainers, and the long-awaited Pet Battle Dungeon! [source]

New Pets
Scraps
Currently there are 8 datamined pets coming in Patch 7.2. Here's a summary of what's to come:

  • 3 Death Knight-themed whelplings
  • 3 dropped pets from a new reward bag
  • 1 battle pet from the Rogue Order Hall
  • 1 pet (pictured right) from an unknown source


All 7.2 datamined pets

The new whelplings currently use Placeholder Pet Journal entries, and it's unclear where they (and the undead canine) will come from.

Stay tuned, we'll have more updates on these pets as PTR testing continues.

New Trainer?
Sissix
@Mononic1 on Twitter discovered a new possible trainer hiding in the Broken Isles in 7.2. [source]

This new trainer is named Sissix (pictured right). She's located near the eastern-most flightpath on the Broken Shore.

At the moment, interacting with her only brings up a short dialogue and does not start a Pet Battle.

We can only speculate what new challenge she has for us. Could there be more hidden trainers in the upcoming patch? We'll have to wait and see!

New Feature: Pet Battle Dungeon!
Very briefly mentioned during BlizzCon 2016, the Pet Battle Dungeon was (and still is) a highly anticipated feature. The good news is that it is currently up and ready for testing on the 7.2 PTR!

Keep in mind that this content is still undergoing testing and is subject to change. You can leave constructive feedback on the Pet Battle Dungeon on the Battle.net forums or in our dedicated forum thread.

The Pet Battle Dungeon begins with a quest in Dalaran (Broken Isles). Head to Breanni's shop and an NPC will offer you a new quest ("A Call From the Caverns") if you are level 110 and have at least one level 25 battle pet.

Skull entrance outside Wailing Caverns
This quest sends you to Wailing Caverns in Northern Barrens. Find Muyani above ground, outside of the dungeon; she's located in the left eye-socket of the skull entrance (pictured above).

Muyani is concerned about a growing (pet) menace inside Wailing Caverns and would like you to investigate.

Wailing Critters scenario
The follow-up quest, "Wailing Critters", sends you inside a new instanced version of the dungeon. Simply speak with her again to queue into the scenario.

There are 7 Stages in this Pet Battle Dungeon, comprised of 11 different encounters you'll need to complete. Be prepared to set aside some time for some serious Pet Battling.

All enemy pets are level 25 and have either the Elite or Boss passive. Note the opponents during Stage 1, as these 3 pet-types will be found throughout the dungeon.

Growing Ectoplasm
  • Stage 1: Defeat 3 different pets and their teams - Deviate Smallclaw (common Beast), Deviate Chomper (common Aquatic), Devaite Flapper (common Flying)
  • Stage 2: Defeat Son of Skum, an epic quality Beast
  • Stage 3: Defeat 3 different pets and their teams - Phyxia, Dreadcoil, Vilefang (all uncommon Beasts)
  • Stage 4: Defeat Hiss, an epic quality Beast
  • Stage 5: Defeat 2 different pets and their teams - Growing Ectoplasm x2 (rare Magic) (pictured right)
  • Stage 6: Confront the Shadowy Figure! (There's no battling for this objective)
  • Stage 7: Defeat Budding Everliving Spore, a legendary quality Elemental


Detailed overview of 7.2 Pet Battle Dungeon

Opponent teams are "locked" per instance. You can speak with the NPC at the start of the dungeon to teleport out, but it will reset your progress and possibly change the second and third pets on the enemy teams.

Unlike the Celestial Tournament, you can heal and revive your pets in this version of the dungeon. But rest assured, there's a challenge waiting for those seeking it!

Completing the dungeon and turning in the quest rewards an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone. We're left with a cliffhanger for now, but hopefully this hints that future Pet Battle content will continue the story of this mysterious and ominous Shadowy Figure!

After turning in "Wailing Critters", Muyani will have another quest for you. This quest will only appear if you have enough level 25 pets (possibly 15 max level pets, the same requirement as the Celestial Tournament).

Damp Pet Supplies reward bag
The next quest, "Pet Battle Challenge: Wailing Caverns", is an account-wide weekly quest similar to the Celestial Tournament: NO healing or reviving in the challenge version of the scenario.

It yields a new reward bag, Damp Pet Supplies, which has a chance to drop 3 new pets.

Patch 7.2 is shaping up to be a big patch for Pet Battlers and collectors! Are you ready for a new challenge?

Here in the Broken Isles, lots of new pets and tamers.  Working towards my team achievements, just wish they'd come up a bit more regularly but that's all just part of the fun.  Hoping everyone is really enjoying all this new pet content... at least the new shoulder enchants are helping with the loss of pet charms from the Draenor tamers.

 

I'm getting Great help from new friends here at WCP!!  Thank you everyone!!!
