Gilnean raven is one i use every day. You can still occasionally find an old s/s on the AH, but it's getting rarer. The new versions are all b/b.
As for a comprehensive list ...I'm sure someone has compiled one, but I've not seen it anywhere.

Breeds... Gilnean Raven breeds other than B/B are retired. Shore Crawler other than B/B, retired. Firefly other than S/S, retired. And...

Oh good, someone linked a MMO Champ post under Jade Crane Chick for this! ... News-Recap - "Brilliant Kaliri, Jade Tentacle, Tirisfal Batling, Firefly, Jade Crane Chick, Gilnean Raven, and Shore Crawler are no longer available in multiple breeds."

Off the top of my head I don't know what the other retired breeds are per pet, other than the 3 I listed above.

Wasn't there a Dragon Kite breed other than the current? I believe both SS and BB exists but one isn't obtainable anymore.

Also theres a pet-collecting achievement that rewards a pet that can roll multiple breeds but since its an accwide achievement, you can pick and chose. Dunno if its on the list of pets mentioned in the patchnotes linked earlier.

Oh, that's nice to know. Didn't even know they changed some pets.
It's strange they did not change the already existing pets.
I think my Firefly is H/S or something like that.

And for the pets themselves you have [url=;crs=2;crv=0;eb=1=]a Wowhead filter[/url].

Note that these are just items. Smolderweb Carrier was a quest reward and the pet still exists looted from the boss herself.

Some of pets are available via Recruit a Friend.

I have compiled community knowledge & data about pet battle abilities!
