Pet Battles Announcements
There wasn't a lot of pet discussion during this year's convention, however there were a few announcements that caught our attention.
New Charity Pet Coming Soon
Brightpaw, the adorable mana kitty pictured left, is a charity pet coming December 2, 2015. All adoption proceeds through December 31, 2015 will be donated to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Legion Digital Deluxe Pet Now Available
Nibbles is now in-game. Players that purchase the Legion Digital Deluxe pre-order ($69.99) will find this pet in their inventories upon logging in. Be sure to check out Nibbles' interaction with the Illidari Felstalker mount!
Overwatch's Promotional Pet
Blizzard's newest title, Overwatch, will have a promotional pet tied to the CE and Digital Deluxe version of the game.
Players that purchase Overwatch Origins Edition ($59.99) will receive a Baby Winston pet (pictured right) in WoW.
Note that although you can currently pre-order the game, this adorable baby ape has not been released yet. It will likely be available at a later date.
New Archaeology Pets In Legion?
During the WoW Game Systems panel, it was very briefly mentioned that archaeology would receive updates and new pet additions in Legion. No further details were provided.
Baby Moose Teaser
Last but not least, a teaser image (pictured below) was released during the Game Systems panel. It features two moose and their miniature counterparts. There has yet to be any confirmation that these bundles of cuteness will be available as battle pets, but we're certainly hoping!
We look forward to Legion beta (start date still TBA), and hope to hear more information on any Pet Battle changes and new additions. Stay tuned for future updates on pets in Legion!
WarcraftPets Community Meet-Up
This year's WarcraftPets Community Meet-Up was held near Blizzard's Pet Adoption section of the Darkmoon Faire area, a happy coincidence!
We had a great attendance — 50 people stopped by to say hello. Those that signed-in are now entered into our TCG giveaway raffle.
We'll be randomly selecting the winner of a BlizzCon 2013 pet code for Murkalot shortly. The winner will be notified via email today or tomorrow.
We'd like to thank Marzena for hosting this year's WarcraftPets Meet-Up.
Not only did Marzena organize this year's gathering, she also baked some delicious pet-themed cookies (pictured right). Frostwolf Pup, Cinder Pup, Lost Netherpup, Fel Pup along with paw print and battlestone cookies — almost too cute to eat!
Here are a few thoughts that Marzena wanted to share about the event.
"This year we met up with a lot of wonderful new people and of course some wonderful regulars that have visited in the past!
It was great to meet everyone new and familiar and to discuss our favorite pets, ones we wish we had and ones we just obtained!
Indeed, a big thank you to everyone that stopped by our Community Meet-Up.
We'll be posting all of the wonderful BlizzCon 2015 Meet-Up pictures to the WarcraftPets Facebook page, so stay tuned.
We look forward to the next BlizzCon and WarcraftPets gathering! And of course, thank you to ALL of our users for your continued support.
