Eleven New Pets
In this latest beta patch we found ten new pets in the Pet Journal, plus one that was not listed.
- Blue Axebeak Hatchling
- Brown Axebeak Hatchling
- Green Axebeak Hatchling
- Red Axebeak Hatchling
You may recognize these first four pets (pictured right), as we mentioned them previously in our preview of new pet models and colors.
The Axebeak Hatchlings are likely wild and will be found in Draenor. We're happy to see that these beautiful birds will be joining our collections in WoD!
Next, there are two holiday pets, the Lovebird Hatchling from Love is in the Air and the Bush Chicken from Pilgrim's Bounty.
The Bush Chicken is currently listed in the Pet Journal as a vendor pet from Love is in the Air, however developer Jeremy Feasel notes that this is a bug. Instead, players will "rescue it from a delicious doom during Pilgrim's Bounty".
A new Grand Master Trainer will be appearing at the Darkmoon Faire in WoD, Christoph VonFeasel. Completing his daily quest rewards Greater Darkmoon Pet Supplies, which has a chance of dropping a pet, Syd the Squid (pictured above).
The final three newly discovered pets come from varying sources according to the Pet Journal.
- Gnawtooth Rat - Pet Battle: Garrison
- Goren Youngling - Unknown drop
- Stonegrinder - Unknown drop (Draenor)
Last but not least, there is one additional pet that was not included in the Pet Journal, Mystical Spring Bouquet. Much like the balloons and most kites, the Spring Bouquet will not have stats or be able to enter a battle. It looks like it will be a lovely, colorful companion though.

New Battle-Stones and Vanity Items
Leveling hundreds of pets might be daunting for many players, however there might be some help on the way.
The latest beta patch added ten family-specific battle-training stones. Unlike the previously datamined leveling battle-stones, these grant a pet only one level and are not marked as "testing" items. It's still unknown where these new stones will come from, or how common they'll be.
Battling and leveling aside, some pets just want to have fun! Three new vanity items for the Perky Pug will be available in WoD, "Lil' Starlet" Costume (pictured right), "Mad Alchemist" Costume, and Perky Blaster.
Playing dress up with your Pug is all fine and dandy, but take care when handing your pup fireworks!
