Patch 6.1 PTR: Preview of Raiding with Leashes Pets and More

January 16, 2015
Recent datamining revealed 14 new pets coming in Patch 6.1. The majority of the pets are part of the achievement Raiding with Leashes III: Drinkin' From the Sunwell.

We had a chance to check these pets out on the PTR, and not only do these pets look amazing, each of the 13 Raiding With Leashes III pets has a unique idle animation or interaction!

Abyssius, Chaos Pup, Grotesque

  • Abyssius (pictured above, left) - Is periodically dazed, crumbles apart, and then pulls itself back together.
  • Chaos Pup (pictured above, middle) - Runs rapidly in a circle making stomping noises as it runs.
  • Grotesque (pictured above, right) - Occasionally sits down and freezes in a perched gargoyle pose.

Fragment of Anger, Fragment of Desire, Fragment of Suffering

Hyjal Wisp, Leviathan Hatchling, Sister of Temptation

  • Hyjal Wisp (pictured above, left) - Shoots out a golden beam that causes a small, green blossom tree to grow.
  • Leviathan Hatchling (pictured above, middle) - Periodically falls over into a deep sleep.
  • Sister of Temptation (pictured above, right) - Nearby critters become temporarily infatuated with her, causing a heart to appear over their heads.

Stinkrot, Sunblade Micro-Defender, Wretched Servant

  • Stinkrot (pictured above, left) - Lets out a large audible burp which creates a gas cloud around it. Critters that wander into the gas are killed.
  • Sunblade Micro-Defender (pictured above, middle) - Shoots out fel-chain lightning at nearby critters.
  • Wretched Servant (pictured above, right) - Occasionally eats and drinks while standing.

The pet reward for collecting all 12 listed above is an especially unique pet. Peaceful and serene, K'ute (pictured right) cannot battle, but we think it would kick butt if it could!

K'ute plays a continuous wind chime-like sound when it is summoned out. Every now and then, it will have a singing animation similar to that of the Singing Sunflower. Additionally, nearby critters are sometimes blessed with Touch of the Naaru, causing a glowing blue emblem to appear over their heads.

Race MiniZep
The last pet that was recently datamined from the 6.1 PTR is the Race MiniZep (pictured left). It's not related to the Raiding With Leashes achievement, and instead comes from the Darkmoon Faire.

It's still unknown what we'll need to do to obtain this pet, but it probably has something do with the new racing mini-game coming to the faire in 6.1. Throughout the racecourse there are hostile MiniZeps dotted around, so better not confuse the racecourse version with the pet!

Latest patch just added 4 more according to Wowhead :) Can't get on to test yet, 5gig to go.


New battle pets:  Young Talbuk,  Slithershock Elver,  Bone Serpent.  Traveler's Pet Supplies is a new pet item that may contain a "special pet"--perhaps  My Special Pet?

I like the way you think. A Hyena pet would be amazing! This needs to be a thing.

Must... have... ALL THE COLORS OF MICRO-DEFENDERS! LOVE those things!



I am SUPER excited about their idle animations too! They all sound super cool! The Chaos Pup sounds adorably derpy, running around in circles. xD



I can invision the Sister of Temptation being a favorite on the AH. >.>

These new pets sound even more amazing now.  I'm so excited for 6.1.   I'm going to have a blast running these ol' raids (which I enjoy anyways)... even better with new incentives to acquire these fabulous new vanity pets.


I think I'm most anxious to get the baby Succubus, she's so teensy and adorable!

I think they missed an opportunity with K'ute. It could have been a pure support pet with no damaging abilities. Instead, it could have abilities like Accuracy, Magic Barrier, AoE heals, Celestial Blessing, Righteous Inspiration and so on. Combine it with a very low HP and moderate speed perhaps...



Oh, and I totally want the Sister of Temptation for my warlock. :3
