Legendary Challenges With New Rewards
Blizzard recently updated the official 6.2 Patch Notes with an interesting addition to Draenor Pet Battles — Legendary Pet NPCs!
"Fel-corrupted legendary pets have been spotted in Tanaan Jungle! Each pet can be defeated once per day for a bag of Fel-Touched Pet Supplies, which can contain pet charms, Battle-Training stones to increase a battle pet's level, and even rare pets." [source]
@Mononic1 on Twitter came across one of the new legendary pets named Dreadwalker on the Tanaan coast.
In addition to Dreadwalker, 13 other "boss pets" can be found on the southern coast of Tanaan Jungle. It's likely that they are still works in progress, and changes may be made. We'll provide more updates on these encounters as testing on the PTR progresses.
Completing each of the daily quests will reward Fel-Touched Pet Supplies, which can contain Fel-Touched Battle-Training Stones and one of four new pets noted below.
Five New Pets
As mentioned above, the legendary pet dailies will have a chance to drop new pets. Currently there are four possible pets (pictured below).
- Nightmare Bell
- Periwinkle Calf
- Seaborne Spore
- Zangar Spore
The fifth newest pet is the Corrupted Nest Guardian, which looks like a fel-touched Ancient Nest Guardian. This pet will drop from Shadow-Lord Iskar, a boss in the new level 100 Hellfire Citadel raid zone.

A Fel-Pet of Your Own
If you enjoy the fel-look, in Patch 6.2 you'll be able to apply it to your battle pets!
Looting the The Perfect Blossom in Zorammarsh, Tanaan Jungle will drop a toy of the same name. It has a one day cooldown and gives 2-4 Fel Petals on use.
Feeding these petals to your companion pet will give them a temporary translucent green appearance (example pictured right). Fel-pets without the threat of fel-corruption — neat!
