: The title "Tamer" has been replaced with "Zookeeper". [source
Additionally, the Cooking School Bell is unfortunately not the new Pandaren Children's Week quest item. It's part of the new cooking dailies. [source
The MoP beta is trucking along, and another build was recently released. There are some interesting changes and additions in the latest patch. [source
Achievement Title Reward
Many have been requesting for a pet collecting title to proudly sport, and this request might be fulfilled in MoP!
The achievement Time To Open a Pet Store
now rewards the title Tamer
. It also now only requires 335 Pet Battle achievement points, down from 400. The achievement points necessary will probably encompass all achievements earned in the Pet Battles tab, including the three sub-categories - Collect, Battle, and Level.
New Children's Week Orphan
New Pet Battles Item
A Cooking School Bell was added recently, and as the tooltip indicates, this item appears to be an item used to summon a new orphan for next year's Children's Week.
It's likely that the orphan NPC will be a Pandaren child, and the quest chain will start in Pandaria. We will have to wait and see what the rewards will be for completing a new Children's Week quest chain, but maybe it will include a companion pet!
Another new item was discovered from the most recent patches. Datamining revealed a Battle Pet Bandage
. It's currently unknown where this item comes from, and how the use of the pet bandage will be integrated into Pet Battles.
However, it does seem probable that pets will require healing and sometimes reviving between battles. [source
Pet Battles Still WIP
Pet Battles are still not quite ready for testing, however there have been consistent updates and changes to the UI and the battling system with each beta patch. We will have more in depth coverage and details of Pet Battles once it is fully activated on the beta.
