According to the PTR Pet Journal the Race MiniZep is indeed from the Darkmoon Faire, however it's still unclear how we'll earn this pet.
New Achievement and Pets
In Patch 6.1 an achievement that we've been looking forward to will finally be implemented — Raiding with Leashes III: Drinkin' From the Sunwell!
This achievement is the third installment in a chain of similar pet collecting challenges. In each version, players need to travel to older raid zones and collect pets that the bosses have been secretly hiding. Who knew that some of these big baddies had a soft spot for a pet or two?
To complete this new achievement, collectors will need to venture into Black Temple, Hyjal Summit, and Sunwell Plateau. A total of 12 pets will come from these three raids.
- Fragment of Anger
- Fragment of Desire
- Fragment of Suffering
- Grotesque Statue
- Hyjal Wisp
- Leviathan Egg
- Servant's Bell
- Shard of Supremus
- Smelly Gravestone
- Sultry Grimoire
- Sunblade Rune of Activation
- Void Collar
Collecting all 12 pets listed above rewards you with yet another pet, Holy Chime which teaches K'ute. With a name like that, we can only hope that it's a cute Naaru!
Two other pets were also datamined but they are unrelated to the Raiding with Leashes achievement.
Currently there's no information on where the Race MiniZep Controller will come from, however Patch 6.1 will implement a new racing challenge at the Darkmoon Faire. Do collectors need to win a race to earn a racing pet? We'll have to wait and see if that's the case.
Last but not least, My Special Pet was also datamined. This pet appears to be incomplete or a placeholder of sorts. We can only wonder what this pet will be revealed as, and if it will be available to players.
Ever wish you could instantly level a pet to 25? In Patch 6.1 you might be able to! The Ultimate Battle-Training Stone was datamined, but the source of this stone is still unknown.
A similar stone was implemented during the WoD Beta, the Mythical Battle-Pet Stone. Unfortunately, this particular Battle-Stone was only for testing purposes and was not released on live servers.
We still don't know if the Ultimate Battle-Training Stone will end up like the Mythical version and remain unavailable post-testing. However, there are a few notable differences between the two that indicate the new Battle-Stone could be worthy for release.
- The Ultimate Battle-Training Stone is consumed when used
- Has an item level of 100
- Is not unique
- Has a player level requirement of 90
While these details are indeed tantalizing, we'll have to wait and see what the fate of this new Battle-Stone will be.
