MoP Beta: Pet Battles Music and New Achievement

June 05, 2012
Pet Battles Music
Pet Battles is turning out to be quite a sophisticated feature. Not only will it have its own unique UI and combat system, Blizzard is even adding pet battles music! [source]

Mathew McCurley from WoW Insider commented on the newly datamined musical pieces and how they seem to touch on the faction songs in the original Warcraft games.

Take a listen and you be the judge!



New Leveling Achievement
MMO-Champion also datamined a new pet leveling achievement, Newbie, which requires players to raise a pet to level 3. [source]

This achievement is not yet tied into the main achievement tier, but it would not be a surprise if it became part of the pet leveling progression.

MoP CE Pet and Terrible Turnip Preview

June 12, 2012
Terrible Turnip - is he really so terrible?
Collector's Edition Pet
A new beta build will be deployed shortly. Datamined from the latest patch are hints of what the MoP Collector's Edition pet will be — a Lucky Quilen Cub! [source]

The Quilen creature is a lion-like creature, as seen here, that can be found on the island of Pandaria.

In addition to a companion, a mount version of this intriguing creature was discovered as well. The Imperial Quilen is also labeled as a Collector's Edition item.

This is the first instance in which a CE mount was discovered along with a companion pet. It's not clear if players will receive both the pet and the mount after attaching a CE version of the expansion to their account, or if players will have to choose between one or the other.

The Terrible Turnip
Ever wondered what an unusually large turnip minipet would look like?

Well, look up top!

In addition, MMO-Champion has two more screenshots of what appear to be a turnip and a carrot; the former being appropriately named "turnippet"!

Stats Preference Extends to Top 50 Lists

June 16, 2012
We've made a slight change to the way WarcraftPets members are displayed on our Top 50 lists. If you've been ranked in one of these lists, this change could affect your standing.

In the past, if you collected enough pets to place on both the Top 50 - Characters list and the Top 50 - Accounts, our system automatically placed you on the characters list. This was true even if your rank was higher on the accounts list.

The change we made gives YOU control over which list you'll appear on. The setting is tied to your community stats preference (which shows how many pets you've collected underneath your comments). You can change this setting on your account management page under "My Collection."

Stats Preference Extends to Top 50 Lists

You can change this setting to show pets collected for either your main character or all characters. If you opt for "main," you'll appear on the Top 50 - Characters list. Conversely, if you choose "all," you'll appear on the Top 50 - Accounts list.

Note that this setting has no bearing on where you rank on our realm lists.

MoP Beta: Achievement Updates

June 20, 2012
A new patch will be deployed on the beta servers in the near future. Here are some of the more notable updates and additions that we've found!

New Achievement
The Feral Vermling was originally discovered as the reward for completing the achievement Mater Pet Hunter, however a new achievement tier was added, Zen Pet Hunter (Capture 150 battle pets). This newest achievement will award the vermling companion instead. [source]

It's a (Better) Trap!
Two new rewards were also datamined for pet battle achievements. A Strong Trap will be the reward for Going to Need More Traps (Capture 50 battle pets), while a Pristine Trap will be the reward for Pro Pet Group (Raise 15 pets to level 25). [source]

Currently these rewards aren't showing up in either Wowhead or MMO-Champion's databases, so this might indicate spell changes rather than actual items. We will have to wait to find out what exactly these upgraded traps are.

Is Three The Magic Number?
According to the updated client strings (PET_BATTLE_TRAP_ERR_5), it appears as though players will only be allowed to have 3 of the same companion at the same time in their pet journal in MoP. [source]

If this is true, players who have 3 deer pets for example, would need to release or cage at least one to be able to capture another wild deer.

Hopefully Blizzard's official blog post (coming "soon") about Pet Battles will have more details on how this will work.
