Scroll down to Battle Pets:

Of particular note is a MAJOR buff to Apocalypse! Its a real danger now, as it only will take 2 turns to land.

Something tells me that apocalypse teams will be how to win with the elekk plushie.

All abilities with variable damage had a buff. - Edit - just bad datamining to not show crush. I looked at the wowhead summary and that one lists crush.

Curiously enough, Nimbus now gives +20% chance to hit. Up from 10%. Seems kinda pointless now..

Dreadful Breath got buffed, splitting its damage evenly between enemy targets. So its no longer terribly weak on less than 3 targets.


And one new pet, A Draenei Micro Defender.

That just seems insane to me. I mean, I know that attack was pretty useless before. I don't think I ever had one cast that went off before the opposing pet died. But still, this is nuts, 2 turns?!?!? :o

It still retains its 15round cd tho. A single dodge at the right time would amputate it pretty good. Anubisath Idol would have no problems handling it. Or just a random bunny.

Some other interesting ones in there.

Superbark - Another attack that can't kill your target. Should mean something else to compliment or replace our good old turnip.

Inferno herding - Force the lowest health pet to swap in.
Puppies of flame - what you'd expect
Those both sound like they could be for the recently announced puppy.


Two turns does seem pretty powerful. If you think about it, unless you happen to have an avoidance pet already in you are forced to swap and use a big cd. That's pretty powerful and if you happened to have a team with out any avoidance moves you are at a major disadvantage.

Yes, Apocalypse have the potential to be meta-changing. Requiring an avoidance move in the lineup. Most likely Anubisath will become even more of a go-to pet. Critters tends to be the main apoc user, whom will be weak against humanoids. And those critters will most likely be using scratch as sandstorm will utterly amputate the multihitting flank.

Hrm. Unborn Valkyr with Haunt could probably also be a viable avoider, since youd be dead before the apocalypse lands if you use it on the turn its going to pop. Though youd still be quite vulnerable as the last pet remaining, then it have no defense against apocalpyse. Plus another con is being undead and taking extra damage from critter attacks.

Yes, it's insane. I predict 0% chance it goes live in that form.

You're correct, the wowhead link has movesets for the three new pets:

http://wod.wowhead.com/npc=84915
http://wod.wowhead.com/npc=84885

Corgi has some potential if it's fast; Giant's Blood + Dreadful Breath could be fun on the gronnling -- that would be 530 every turn split among the enemy team, assuming you have Cleansing Rain and a BB gronnling (293 power).

I wouldn't get two excited about apocolypse just yet:
