WoW's 15th Anniversary: Coming Soon — Lil' Nefarian

May 14, 2019
WoW 15th Anniversary
WoW will be celebrating its 15th anniversary in November of this year. Blizzard released details on what we can expect during the celebratory event, including a collectible Lil' Nefarian!

Upcoming Anniversary Rewards
Lil' Nefarian
To commemorate WoW's 15th anniversary, Blizzard will be releasing special goodies, such as an Anniversary Collector's Edition Box that comes with many physical rewards plus new in-game mounts.

In addition to physical items, the in-game Anniversary Event will also feature the Obsidian Worldbreaker mount and Lil' Nefarian battle pet (pictured right)! [source]

The mount will require the completion of an upcoming special anniversary 25-man raid, however the pet will be rewarded to all players that simply log on during the event.

More details on the in-game event will be provided in the future. Blizzard's official press release on the anniversary can be found here.

We can't wait to add Lil' Nefarian to our ever-growing battle pet family. Speaking of family... Lil' Deathwing and Onyxian Whelpling are sure to give Lil' Nefarian the warmest of welcomes.

Recruit-A-Friend Program Going On Hiatus Soon

May 10, 2019
Blizzard recently announced that they will be putting the Recruit-A-Friend program on hold, starting June 11, 2019, for an indeterminate period of time. [source]

Recruit-A-Friend (RAF) is heading into the workshop! The longstanding RAF program is going on hiatus while we construct something new that makes it even more rewarding to introduce your friends to World of Warcraft. As of June 11, 2019, the current program will come to an end, and you’ll no longer be able to send new RAF invitations. Don’t worry though—the program will be back in its new form before you know it.

To take advantage of the current RAF program, your friend will need to link a qualifying WoW account to yours before June 11, and will have 90 days to purchase game time to trigger any rewards.* Check out the RAF web page for the details on the current program and the available rewards.

We look forward to sharing the details of the new RAF program with you in the future!

*Recruited friends must not already have a World of Warcraft account, or their account must be fewer than 30 days old. Link period lasts for 90 days after your friend's account was first created.

4 Recruit-A-Friend pets

There are currently 4 battle pet rewards (pictured above) from Recruit-A-Friend (plus 5 mounts). The pets are BoP and cannot be caged.

In light of the hiatus, pet enthusiasts may want to consider collecting these battle pets sooner rather than later. Check out our Community Guide on How to Recruit Yourself.

It's unclear what will become of these rewards, what changes will be made, and when the program will return. Hopefully more information will be available in the near future.

Patch 8.2 PTR: Stratholme Pet Dungeon Overview

May 02, 2019
Stratholme Pet Dungeon is finally open for testing on the 8.2 PTR! We dove right in and here are some insights on what to expect — SPOILERS ahead!

Note that due to the nature of the PTR, the following may not be final and could change prior to release.

Tiny Take-Over Of Stratholme
Word around town is that something sinister is happening in a certain ruined city in northern Eastern Plaguelands. Who or what could overtake an already diseased and Undead-overrun place like Stratholme? Let's send in our battle pets to find out!

In Patch 8.2, level 120 Horde can speak with Radek Fuselock (nearby Happy Holaua) in Dazar'alor, and level 120 Alliance can talk to Tizzy Gearjolt (outside Dana Pull's store) in Boralus to pick up the breadcrumb quest, 'Restless Dead', which leads to Argent Crusade member Sean Wilkers, just outside of backdoor Stratholme.

In addition to being a quest NPC, he is also the Stratholme Pet Dungeon vendor. Unlike previous Pet Dungeons that offered only 3 pets to purchase, Sean Wilkers sells a total of 4 new pets, plus an Unopened Stratholme Supply Crate.

4 new Stratholme pets

Each pet will require Cleansed Remains, is Bind On Pick Up, and cannot be caged. Players will need a total of 9 Cleansed Remains to buy one of each pet.

After completing 'Restless Dead', the next quest is 'Tiny Terrors of Stratholme'. Completing it will reward an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone, and the ability to teleport using Manapoof directly to backdoor Stratholme.

The challenge version of this Pet Dungeon is also unlocked upon turning in 'Tiny Terrors of Stratholme'. Pick up and complete the account-wide weekly quest, 'Pet Battle Challenge: Stratholme', to earn Cleansed Remains.

Same as previous Pet Dungeons, completing the Challenge version of the scenario will award an achievement of the same name and players will earn a new pet. The pet reward this time is Minimancer (pictured left)!

Inside Stratholme Pet Dungeon
The Stratholme Pet Dungeon has a total of 11 stages. Enemy pet teams are a mix of Undead, Magic, Dragonkin, and Beast families, plus a few battles have an additional twist to them!

Inside Stratholme Pet Dungeon
There are 11 pet encounters — all enemy pets are level 25. Here's a quick breakdown of each stage.

Liz the Tormentor

As noted above, a few of these battles have additional mechanics and may not be the usual, straightforward fight. Nefarious Terry and Blackmane both have passives that transform upon their 'defeat'.

We hope you're ready to help cleanse Stratholme. Get your battle pets ready; these Shadowy Figures causing critter chaos aren't going to go down without a fight.

Patch 8.2 PTR: Stratholme Pet Dungeon Preview & Development Notes

April 23, 2019
This week's PTR update included a quick look at the upcoming Stratholme Pet Dungeon. Additionally, Blizzard posted development notes regarding this week's PTR patch.

The latest PTR patch added 8 more pets, bringing us to a total of 87 datamined pets! We'll have more information on these pets once it becomes available.

Check out 8.2 PTR datamined pets

Stratholme Pet Dungeon Preview
Unfortunately the Stratholme Pet Dungeon is not quite ready for testing. However, the scenario has been datamined so here's a quick preview of what's to come. [source]

11 Stage Scenario

  • Stage 1: Did That Just Come Out of its Mouth?
  • Stage 2: It Just Wants to Play!
  • Stage 3: Scary Ghosts and Creepy Fiends
  • Stage 4: Tormented Spirits
  • Stage 5: Ain't Afraid of No Ghosts
  • Stage 6: Ambush!
  • Stage 7: No Shortage of Dead Things
  • Stage 8: Tiny In Size, Brimming With Evil
  • Stage 9: Controlled Chaos
  • Stage 10: Into the Slaughter House!
  • Stage 11: The Shadows Return

Much like previous Pet Dungeons, completing the Normal version will unlock the Challenge Mode. Completing this tougher version of the Pet Dungeon will complete the achievement Pet Battle Challenge: Stratholme, which awards Minimancer! (pictured above)

Once the Stratholme Pet Dungeon opens up for testing, we'll have a firsthand overview of what Pet Battlers will find inside, and the rewards that will be available.

8.2 PTR Development Notes
Blizzard released development notes regarding what is currently available for testing on the PTR, and what we can expect in the near future. [source]

Related to battle pets and Pet Battles:
- New Zone: Mechagon - (New April 23) Battle Pets and Pet Battle World Quests

Coming soon to the PTR:
- Pet Battle Dungeon: Stratholme

An improved Bug Report system is currently in place on the PTR, so it should be easier to report any issues and give feedback. The PTR Bug Forum is also a good place to note bugs and provide constructive feedback.

Note that there will be character wipe on the PTR in a few weeks, and testers will need to re-copy their character and account-data.

Blizzard released a preview of what's coming in Patch 8.2, Rise of Azshara. Hosted by Senior Game Designer Jeremy Feasel, the livestream covered many new upcoming features, including a brief glimpse of new pets! [source]

Pet Battles In 8.2
We're looking forward to tons of new collectible pets and Pet Battle content in the next major content patch.

Patch 8.2 - new gnome-bot pet and slug pet plus other loot
Here is some pet-related content that was mentioned in today's preview.

  • 2 new zones with new rewards, drops, and Timeless Isle-style rarespawns (longer timers, some with unique spawn mechanics, a few very rare)
  • New Pet Dungeon - Stratholme!
  • 2 new Island Expeditions with new rewards
  • A new mechanical 'alarm-o-bot' pet from Mechagon, and a slug pet from Nazjatar (pictured above)
  • Holiday updates, including Brewfest
  • ...and more?!

Patch 8.2 PTR begins next week
