BATTLE_PET_PUT_IN_CAGE - Put In Cage
ERR_PETBATTLE_CREATE_FAILED - Failed to create pet-battle.
ERR_PETBATTLE_DECLINED - Pet-battle invitation declined.
ERR_PETBATTLE_IN_BATTLE - Pet-battle already in progress.
ERR_PETBATTLE_NOT_A_TRAINER - Must be a battle pet trainer to pet-battle.
ERR_PETBATTLE_NOT_HERE - Cannot pet-battle here.
ERR_PETBATTLE_NOT_HERE_OBSTRUCTED - Pet-battle area is obstructed.

Perhaps we'll get to test it :) and it looks like we'll (eventually) be able to challenge other players to pet battles. thoughts?

I hope so. I can't look at that list of pets I don't have anymore. I need to start leveling my collection!

I'm really looking forward to testing out how sticking a pet in a cage will work lol. There are some wild pets that I'm dying to get a hold of, even if this is just the beta!

Oh, and where to get a cage too! I wonder if we'll need separate cages for each wild pet we try and collect. If so, that's a lot of cages we're going to have to carry... :P

Using my brilliant deductive abilities, I believe Breanni should be the one to sell us the cages from her store in Dalaran. Can't wait to try out whatever came with this patch, even if it's just updating the wild pet list.

Should be interesting if they make people go back to dalaran to learn pet battle stuff, what about the low level new players who will have to pay for a portal? O.o

All characters (that have the Wrath expansion) now have the Dalaran flight point. But perhaps Breanni will hire some assistants and open Magical Menagerie locations in all major cities!

First preview of the battle pet cage:

It's bugged and teaches the Hyacinth Macaw instead of the Albino Snake atm, though. When placing a pet into a cage, it removes it completely from your Pet Journal but NOT from your toon's spellbook.

Where did you get the cage? :O

No cage required! Just go into the Pet Journal and right click on the pet. There's an option under the rename option to "Put Pet in Cage".

I should warn you though, that it's buggy at the moment. If there's a pet you want to try and put into a cage, make sure you have an alt that can relearn it. Otherwise you won't be able to add it back into the Pet Journal. For a more detailed description: [url]http://wowpetaddiction.blogspot.com/2012/04/pet-cage-preview.html[/url]

I don't know if this has been covered already, I searched around a bit and haven't seen it, but...

I was looking through the pet journal and on my pandaren monk pet, for the ability called Fury of a Thousand Fists it says:

Deals 30 Humanoid damage and has a 25% chance to stun the target for 1 turn.
The chance to stun becomes 100% if the weather is Darkness.

I'd heard that weather could be a factor in catching pets, but I haven't heard anything about pet abilities being affected by it. Do we know which kinds of weather there will be? Any other abilities so far that take it into account?

It was posted over at mmochampion not too long ago:

here's an image with lots of skill screenshots i put together last week, it contains pretty much all known abilities in the beta (except one - "wish") including the abilities that are effected by the weather:
