ZZ02 new pet on PTR

Does anybody have any idea what this pet could be? It got added to PTR just now, at the same time as the Blizzcon pet, and it has a model/sounds/moveset, but I have no idea where it might come from. And the moveset/stats are absolutely insane...

Intriguing. My first thought its some kind of undead construct since it have the vodoo figurine sounds

But cleave and grave destruction, insane smart aoe damage. Plus it wipes out objects! No more decoys, traps nor turrets.

Though Guldan is infamous for his necromantic antics in creating the first death knights. Perhaps this is one of his lesser results.. And I would honestly not be suprised if Guldan ends up making use of a recently dead and quite angry orc from our timeline, due to him foiling his plot for demonizing the orcish tribes.

Here's a link that shows the model, it's the same as the Ancient Nest Guardian which is a sort of avian robot that comes from Archeology: http://wod.wowhead.com/petspecies?filter=na=ZZ02

So UD construct makes total sense, and maybe there's an Arakkoa connection?

The reason I care is the moveset. It's just bonkers. Fantastic AoE damage and the 3rd slot can be UA or a cleanse+heal. And the base stats are incredibly charitable toward health: if it's PP it will be 1725H/309P/211S; if it's HH it will be 2050H/244P/211S.

Humm. Perhaps its something Terokk and his cursed budies have been doing. a mockery of true arrakoa. Though the birdbot model is most likely a placeholder.

Given the B/B stats and the insane moveset, this might not be a player-obtainable pet.
It might just be a new tamer pet or one of the BoF-type pets you can battle out in the world.

Wowhead always lists breeds as B/B in the start.

No, tamer/BoF pets have the 'untameable' tag and only 3 abilities. This is clearly a player-obtainable pet. I just have no idea where it comes from. For example the blizzcon pet is currently 'BC01', so I assumed the ZZ would mean something, but it may not.

Apparently the cursed Arakkoa are a big deal in WoD, and they have some connection with Sethe (which is some Hakkar-like deity thing, and Son of Sethe is UD). So UD Arakkoa construct is my best guess, similar to Voodoo Figurine being a UD Troll construct. But it's clearly being held back for a later patch despite being developed so early, and it's got crazy base stats and a unique ability, which makes me think it's going to be a marquee-type pet. This is the type of treatment that only Valk and Blizzcon/CE pets have gotten in the past.

That moveset also looks similar to the old mini patchwerk pet moveset LeCraft revealed on Twitter so many months ago if I remember right.

EDIT: It is slightly different, but:

mini-Patchwerk is Weebomination, who has a complete moveset now, and he comes from the newest 'big bag of pet supplies' from the daily quest 'Mastering the Menagerie': link here http://wod.wowhead.com/npc=78421

He's cool too, but this ZZ02 guy is different (and way cooler).
