WoD Beta: 8 New Pets, A Guild Pet, Spacegoats and Grommlocs

August 22, 2014
A second patch was deployed to the WoD Beta this week. There are new pets to behold, an update to an achievement, and two intriguing images that we hope are pet-related! [source]

Eight New Pets
The majority of the pets added in the latest patch are currently labeled as wild, but this could change over the course of the beta.

Bone Serpent
  • Bone Serpent (pictured above) - Wild (unique)
  • Flat-Tooth Calf - Wild (Nagrand, Draenor)
  • Glowing Sporebat - Wild
  • Kaliri Hatchling - Wild
  • Mudback Calf - Wild (Nagrand, Draenor)
  • Rubyfeather - Wild
  • Servant of Demidos - Drop (Shadowmoon Valley, Draenor)
  • Shadow Sporebat - Wild


Datamining revealed two pet items that might be related to the new pets — Kaliri Hatchling and Veilwatcher Hatchling. The first one teaches the pet of the same name, and the second teaches Rubyfeather.

We'll see what will become of these two pets, as well as others.

With the recent update to the beta, we've surpassed the 100 new pets mark. There are currently 104 possible pets coming in the expansion. That's a lot of pets!

List of all WoD Alpha datamined pets

Challenge (Mode) Accepted
Deathwatch Hatchling
The new Gold Challenge Mode guild achievement was updated to include a pet reward, a Deathwatch Hatchling (pictured right). This pet was previously named Black Ravager Hatchling and Shadeback Hatchling.

In the same fashion as the MoP Challenge Mode guild achievement that unlocks the Thundering Serpent Hatchling, to unlock the ravager pet, players will need to earn gold in all of the Draenor Challenge Modes while in a guild group.

Those successful will be able to purchase the Deathwatch Ravager from a guild vendor for 300 gold. Although the pet doesn't specify at the moment, players will probably need a guild reputation of Revered or higher to buy this pet.

Spacegoats and Grommlocs
MMO-Champion datamined a new creature model (pictured below), appropriately named "spacegoat" (or more accurately, "LiterallyASpacegoat").

Spacegoat
There's no indication if this will be a pet or not, but we can only hope. Who could resist those big eyes and ears, little hooves, and red nose?

Grommloc
Another interesting image that was datamined by Wowhead is an icon titled "grommloc" (pictured right).

There is speculation that this icon may belong to a Warlord-themed baby murloc. It certainly looks like a murloc of some kind, and if its name is any indication perhaps Grom Hellscream had some influence.

Most murloc-themed pets are associated with special events such as Blizzcon, so could this be this year's Blizzcon pet? We'll have to wait and see!

Rubyfeather and Kaliri Hatchling are actually purchsed off a vendor right now in the beta -- Vesharr, the Master Pet Tamer for Spires of Arak sells them.   The quality varies with purchase, so I just kept buying them until I got two rares.

 

This is of course all subject to change. :)

Omg that space goat is so adorable! I really hope we can collect it as a pet. I think they need to stop using murlocs for blizzcon pets; seems like they're running out of ideas for them...

I now need to pre-emptively find a WoD Gold Challenge Mode guild to join with an alt and get my rep leveled so I can be ready for that pet because he is very very cool!

Yeah, that's the Blizzcon 2014 pet.
