WoD Beta: Updated Pets, Mystery Bag and Hogs Removed

Updated WoD Pets
A number of wild pets was recently removed from the beta Pet Journal. These pets were set to be found in Draenor, however they were not fully implemented.

  • Bloodbeak
  • Bloodthorn Hatchling
  • Cerulean Moth
  • Crimsonwing Moth
  • Fen Crab
  • Glowing Sporebat
  • Ironclaw Scuttler
  • River Calf
  • Sapphire Firefly
  • Violet Firefly

List of all WoD Alpha datamined pets

Although it's disappointing to see any pet removed from the game, there will still be many pets to collect in the expansion. There's a total of 96 new pets so far, one of which received a light makeover.

The Karabor Kid was first introduced into the beta Pet Journal a couple of weeks ago, and has since then received a bit more flair. Renamed to Argi (pictured above), this baby blue goat is now decked out in gold jewelry and has even grown a dark blue mane. How fashionable!

What's In the Bag?
The vendor located at the Menagerie inside your garrison has updated her wares and has a new item for sale.

Mystery Bag from vendor
You can purchase a Mystery Bag for two Pet Charms. Inside the bag you'll find a random family battle-training stone. These new stones are Bind on Pick Up and grant one level when used on a pet.

If you prefer a leveling stone that is not tied to a specific pet family, the Menagerie vendor also sells Flawless Battle-Training Stones for three Pet Charms each.

Hogs Removed
A couple of weeks ago, we reported that Hogs was no longer the reward for completing the PVP achievement during WoW's 10th anniversary.

At the time it was unknown what would become of this bloodthirsty gnoll, however developer Jonathan LeCraft has shed some light on the fate of Hogs.

This is disheartening news, but we remain hopeful that Blizzard will find an appropriate situation to award this iconic pet in the future.

For the time it takes to level a pet 1 level I just dont see the point in spending marks on a random stone... would rather see one do 2-3 levels maybe, or a battlestone that does not remove levels in the process.


Will be another usless item like Polished Battlestone.

I have not yet seen the entire list of things the pet vendor is going to sell but more pet treats would be good, all the way from ones that grant extra xp during pet battles like the existing in game treats but also ones that grant other buffs like extra health or more attack power or speed buff :)

It sounds like they didn't really put much thought into buying training stones from the vendor. I cannot image any reason to ever spend three tokens instead of two for a stone specific to a family. The odds are extremely high that when buying these stones, you are going to immediately use it on a pet, and you know what family that pet belongs to. LOL


However, that is par for the course for WoW developers. The game is chock full of useless vendor items I doubt anyone has ever purchased.
