Battle For Azeroth Beta: Over 50 New Pets, New Achievements & More

May 17, 2018
UPDATE: The existing companions earned from PVP Prestige will be available in BFA. They will require Honor Rank 5 (Dutiful companions) and Honor Rank 20 (Wyrmtongue companions). Those that have already collected these four pets will get to keep them regardless of Honor Rank in BFA. [source]

This week's Battle For Azeroth Beta patch included a plethora of Pet Battle content! Many new pets, including 27 wild pets, collecting achievements, and more. [source]

Over 50 New Pets
The Beta Pet Journal was recently updated with over 50 new pets, bringing the current total of new BFA battle pets to 73! Note that this may not be the final count.

New BFA wild pets

Lost Platysaur
Summary of what was added:

  • 27 wild pets (six pictured above)
  • 1 vendor pet (Lost Platysaur, pictured right)
  • 4 achievement rewards (see below for more information)
  • 6 reputation pets
  • Many more from unknown sources

Check out over 70 new Battle For Azeroth battle pets!

Many of the new Pet Journal entries are incomplete, so there's still some mystery behind a handful of the upcoming pets. There are lots of new pet models, here's just a preview.

We're sure to learn more in future updates, so stay tuned.

New Achievements
Collectors will be rewarded for their efforts in BFA — 4 new achievement pets! We also now know where a previously datamined companion, Hearthy, will come from.


A new achievement, Battle on Zandalar and Kul Tiras, was also added. It requires the completion of 20 Pet Battle WQs (out of a total of 24 possible) on Zandalar and Kul Tiras.

Currently, the BFA WQs have similar spawning to Broken Isles WQs. There are 4 random active Tamer NPCs each day, with one of those possibly on a different timer than the other three. Players must be max level (120) to see and challenge the Tamers. Check out this handy list of possible BFA Pet Tamers and their locations on Zandalar and Kul Tiras.

Pet Charm Changes
As noted last month, there will be a new Pet Battle currency in the expansion. It's still unknown how we'll gather Polished Pet Charms, and what rewards will be available for purchase. A new achievement to collect 500 Polished Charms was also added.

Shiny Pet Charms accepted by BFA vendors
The existing Pet Charms appear to have had a slight update — they were renamed to Shiny Pet Charm. The existing Pet Charmer achievement name was also changed to Shiny Pet Charmer.

Before you go on a spending-spree to use up existing charms, there is strong evidence that Shiny Pet Charms will not be a new currency. It's likely this is simply a name change, and current Pet Charms will still be usable to purchase rewards from the Dalaran and garrison Pet Battle vendors in BFA. Note that Blizzard has yet to confirm this. We'll announce any updates or clarification on this topic.

Which battle pet are you most excited for? What type of new rewards would you like to purchase with Polished Pet Charms?

Still trying for the ever elusive Knockoff Blingtron and Albino Buzzard. Those are my main focus. Whether by gold or luck. Hopefully luck. My Druid is still trying to grow Broot. He’s already grown two Nightmare Lashers. I also need to find a guild in Kael’thas that has Deathwatch Hatchling so hmu if you know of one. 


Happy hunting all! 


Edit: Just got the Albino Buzzard after 36 attempts.

Starting to panic that I have too little time left this expac to get everything done that I want to do! o.O Serves me right for being a "collector of everything"!


I'm still chipping away at the Prestige levels.  Also still working on transmog sets, mounts, general achieves and now toys (especially now that I know there is a pet coming for a future 400 toy achieve!). Alt class mounts (and toys) still in progress too.


Need more time . . .




Working on:

Grinding PvP 

Collecting transmog sets

Getting class mounts for alts

General achievements


Newest Pets:

Fetish Shaman


Most Wanted List:

Dutiful Gruntling

Dutiful Squire



Mini Tyrael

Running out of stuff to do on my main, so finally turning to the alts: got a DH to 105 and parked him at the summoning spot for a daily shot at a Hateful Eye, and making slow but steady progress on lvling a druid and shaman for their various class hall pets (after which there's still monk and rogue left, which... isn't realistically going to happen but WE'LL SEE).



Other than that, I guess just waiting for BfA? Got into the beta but don't really want to entirely spoil the story for myself so I mostly just log on to stare longingly at the pet journal every now and then (Dinosaurs! Butterflies! Bees!! A bunch of new crabs I suppose SOMEONE might be excited about!!)
