Patch 6.2 PTR: Pet Battle Bonus Event and Left Shark Update

April 29, 2015
Get ready for a new bonus event just for Pet Battlers! Plus, the source for Left Shark was revealed in the latest 6.2 PTR patch. [source]

New Pet Battle Bonus Event
Pet Battle Bonus Event
The PTR in-game calendar was updated to include bonus events. Out of the six new events, one might interest Pet Battlers — Pet Battle Bonus Event.

For a short period each month, pets will be awarded triple the normal experience. It's unknown if this will stack with other experience buffs, such as the Safari Hat and Pet Treat.

Keep in mind that this event is still undergoing testing, and its duration and scheduling could change.

It's currently unclear how often the Pet Battle Bonus Event will pop up each month, but hopefully it won't occur too infrequently.

Left Shark Sighted!
We recently reported that the Left Shark was datamined as a possible pet, but it looks as though we'll be seeing this pet in 6.2! Wowhead datamined the upcoming naval missions and discovered a pet hiding among the rewards.

Left Shark
In 6.2 you'll be able to build your own shipyard and once you've acquired a ship or two, send them out on "Ship-Combat" missions (similar to Follower missions).

Currently the Left Shark pet is a reward from Orphaned Aquatic Animal. The mission description reads as follows:

"A young shark has been abandoned in a storm off the coast of Nagrand. Defend it from the Iron Horde and it will likely follow you home."

There are three Threats that must be countered, so better make sure your ship is ready for battle. You definitely don't want to let this little shark slip away!
