Patch 6.2.2 PTR: Legion Pets, Updated Holidays and More

August 13, 2015
There are some tantalizing additions in the latest PTR build — eight new pets, including Collector's Edition pets and the BlizzCon 2015 pet.

Two in-game holidays have also been updated with pets and pet toys. [source]

Blizzard Preview of New Pets
Blizzard released a small sneak peak of what's to come in the near future. [source]

Upcoming pet sneak peak
In Blizzard's preview post we can see four new pets (pictured above). Starting from the upper left pet and working clockwise:

  • Murkidan - BlizzCon 2015
  • Brightpaw - Blizzard Pet Store
  • Zeradar - Legacy of the Void Collector's Edition and Digital Deluxe
  • Nibbles - Legion Collector's Edition and Digital Deluxe

List of all 6.2.1 PTR datamined pets

But Wait, There's More!
On top of the pets listed above, datamining revealed four other new pets. These will be part of in-game holiday updates.

There will be three new pets to collect during Hallow's End.

How these pets will be obtained is still unknown. All three are currently flagged as "not cageable" on the PTR, but this could change prior to the patch's release. We'll have to wait and see.

Another holiday receiving an update is Feast of Winter Veil.

Only one new pet, the Grumpling (pictured right), will be joining other "festive" pets such as the Rotten Little Helper and Lumpy. These pets sure know how to bring holiday their own special way, of course.

In addition to a new pet, the Perky Pug will be getting a new outfit, a "Merry Munchkin" Costume.

You can also enjoy the winter weather with your battle pets in a fun new way — seat them on your Red Wooden Sled and pull them around. Pets that cannot battle don't seem interested in a sled ride, but that's their loss!

I'm so freakin tired of having to keep do the damn holiday crap every year because they throw some new collectable on it every year.

WHEE! New pets! *bounces up and down*


Is it too much to hope that Grumpling will be as noisy as Kun-Lai Runt used to be? I loved having it stomping around.

WOW! Not only is Murkidan already one of the coolest looking pets ever, but that moveset is insane! If they bump his speed up just a litte, I can def see him taking over the fiendish imp role. Immolation, nether gate and a much better option of spammable moves. And if you go the other way, you get a DMG and Crit buff, a nice DoT and a 3 round laser?! Loving the potential of this guy in PVP!!!

I thought I couldn't stand another Murloc. I was wrong. Murkidan is one of the cutest things I have ever seen ingame. And there goes the intend not to spend so much money on Blizzard goodies anymore *sigh*

It would be nice if they bundle Brightpaw with the new mount.
