Even more new 5.4 pets

Postby Poofah » July 24th, 2013, 1:12 pm

They added another round of new pets for 5.4--you can see the short list on MMO-champ. They also updated the abilities for the last batch plus a couple of the new ones on wowdb -- http://ptr.wowdb.com/npcs/battle-pets?filter-patch=3388

And here's the others that I could find:

Bonkers
Gu'Chi Swarmling
Harmonious Porcupette
Jadefire Spirit
Rotten Little Helper
Vengeful Porcupette

Tons of new pets! It's great, but I'm starting to feel overwhelmed. This makes just about 30 new ones coming in 5.4.

Keep in mind this is probably the last heavy content patch of the expansion, so they want to load it up.

Don't feel overwhelmed. Just be excited!

Definitely getting too many new pets now. Should be easy to pass the 580 mark now.

This will push the number of unique pets well over 600 -- but no talk of raising the 650 pet limit...

We really need the max pet limit raised well above 650. 650 was added when the unique count was closer to 500.

Well, due to region-specific pets (at the moment), the actual max someone could have is actually lower. Not sure what it is for other regions, but in NA, the most unique pets you can have is still less than 600 with the 5.4 pets (and for most people, much less than that). Assuming the other regions aren't appreciably higher (I can't see that they would be), that's still plenty of room if Blizzard doesn't want to raise that cap yet.

650 was added when the unique count was closer to 500


Since it started out at 500 in 5.0, I believe it was raised to 650 in 5.1, just for reference.

i actually wish they would stagger the pets, make like 10 availible at 5.4 drop, then wait couple weeks or a month, and put in a few more, then again a month or so later, a few more. so we have time to collect a few and enjoy them first, i get all excited, collect them all, and promptly forget about then, the lesser void caller? cool, but got it and moved on, pygmy run? cute but i need the ooze! i get so focused on the next pet(especially when i see someone else with one i dont have yet!) that i dont get to enjoy the ones i current have. /sadface

I'm excited and overwhelmed all at the same time! So far there's a total of 31 possible pets coming in 5.4. I don't know whether to cheer or to cry lol.

This concerns me because I had been keeping extra wild pets when they were a good breed and the opposite sex of the breed that was rare (like a rare B/B male and a female H/H in uncommon which was never leveled past its capture). There had been some talk of pet breeding, so I was keeping them on the chance that happened. But I am at 650 pets and still need a bunch, so I will have to start deleting the extras. I think I have 483 unique pets and 166 duplicates. I know probably 5-10 duplicates are ones that I am leveling to sell or hoping to trade. I think I am going to have to do some major pet house cleaning if they don't increase the pet limit.

Not to hijack the thread, but is there still a possibility of pet breeding? Or maybe I should just delete the extras and re-capture them if it ever happens.

Right now NA can have a total of 565 unique pets. With the possibility of 31 more pets in 5.4 that would be a total of 596. With that many unique pets availible to only allow 54 total doubles is a little excessive, especially with the different breeds/colors/genders available.

With 5.4 most likely being the last major content patch I don't mind there being 31 or so new pets as we will most likely have nothing new for the next 6 months or so (after 5.4 release) until the next xpac. But with that many new pets it will be a bit overwhelming.

I hope that some of these new pets will be wild...and that they will not all be raid pets or extremely rare drops. The Raiding with Leashes II pets have been low drop rates, and the carp are elusive even with upgraded fishing gear. Rarity is, of course, a desirable characteristic. However, there does need to be something to offer incentive for those of us who are not favored by RNG.

Bliz never said anything about pet breeding: this was always just speculation on the part of the community, based on the fact that pets have genders, plus parallels to that other pet battling game. So it's always possible, but they haven't stated any plans to implement it.

Same, and it kind of irks me because the existence of multiple breeds actively encourages keeping multiples of good pets. Also, with the Celestial Tournament coming, where you can't heal between fights: if you want to use the same pet in multiple fights, you'd probably need multiples of that pet. As an example, if you had to do the 10 Beasts of Fable without ever healing, you'd probably want 3 Chrominius, 3 Val'kyr, 3 Pandaren Water Spirit, and/or multiples of whatever your favorite pets against beast/critter/aquatic happen to be.

The majority of the new pets appears to be drops from rare mobs on Timeless Isle.

650 is now too low. I currently have 642 with 552 unique. Virtually all my dupes are various breeds I would like to keep.

From what I have seen. NONE of the pets are wild pets. They are all coming from crafting, rare world drops, raid drops, or purchaseable with new currencies.

I believe the three moths (not in this update) are wild pets on the Timeless Isle.
