Recruit-A-Friend Returning Soon: New Pet Reward

September 10, 2019
Recruit-A-Friend
Blizzard recently announced that a revamped Recruit-A-Friend program will be returning. It's unclear when as an official date was not announced, but we'll likely see it appear in the near future. [source]

What's New?
Rikki
The updated Recruit-A-Friend program will feature some new rewards. One of these is a fun battle pet, Rikki (pictured right).

Not much is known yet about this little monkey, however Wowhead has datamined its Pet Journal description:

"Rikki has a talent for sneaking in and out of all manner of small spaces, if bribed properly with figs."

To earn this battle pet, players will need to recruit a new friend, or recruit an account that has not had game time added to it in the past 2 years. After this recruit adds 1 month of game time or more to their account, Rikki should be claimable.

Other rewards include a new title, weapon enchant, tabard, cosmetic gear, and two 2-seater mounts. Learn more about these rewards in Blizzard's preview of the updated Recruit-A-Friend program.

What About Previous Rewards?
Unfortunately, it's unknown if the previous Recruit-A-Friend battle pets will be made available to collectors ever again.

4 Recruit-A-Friend pets



No information was provided regarding these pets, so at this time we can only speculate that they have been retired either temporarily or permanently. We certainly hope that it's the former and we'll see them again in the future.

New Pet Filter: WoW Classic

September 04, 2019
World of Warcraft Classic
We're happy to announce that we've added a new pet filter to help adventurers find and collect all of the fun and cute Classic vanity pets!

Simply head to our Filter Pets By... page and select the 'World of Warcraft Classic' filter, Include, and then Apply Filters. Browse through 46 49 collectible companion pets found in Classic. (We've added the original CE companions to the list.)

Check out the Classic pets filter

Note that the 'Classic' filter is separate from the 'Vanilla' filter, as shown in different tooltips. Sources for pets have changed over the years — the 'Vanilla' filter will reflect current Retail (BFA) pet sources. Meanwhile, the 'Classic' filter will have tooltips with information relevant to Classic WoW.

The Classic filter does not include Promotional pets, as many of these companions are no longer available. However, you can still view this list by searching using the 'Vanilla' and 'Promotional' filters.

Additionally, we've updated each Classic companion pet's profile page to include a new section listing the pet's 'Classic Source' plus original item tooltip. It can be found toward the bottom of each pet profile, just above the Notes.

For a quick overview of collectible Classic pets, you can also check out our Classic Vanity Pets Guide.

We hope everyone is enjoying WoW Classic and the adorable companions it has to offer. What better way to relive old memories and create some new ones than with a cute critter by your side!

Patch 8.2 Live This Week: 90 New Pets, Stratholme Pet Dungeon & More

June 25, 2019
UPDATE: We're aware of the import error afflicting users. It appears to be an issue on Blizzard's end. Until they fix the API issue, try using this workaround to get your WarcraftPets collection up-to-date. It seems to work for most users, but not all. Apologies for the inconvenience; hopefully this is addressed soon.

UPDATE #2: Blizzard has resolved this issue. Thanks for your patience.

Patch 8.2 - 90 new pets, Stratholme Pet Dungeon and more!
Patch 8.2 is live this week. There are many new pets to collect, a new Pet Dungeon to conquer, and more. [source]

Many New Pets
Rise of Azshara patch adds 90 new pets! Here's a quick summary:

  • 41 dropped
  • 31 wild
  • 7 from vendors
  • 4 from the new Pet Dungeon vendor
  • 3 achievement rewards
  • 2 crafted
  • 2 quest rewards


Check out all Patch 8.2 pets!

Pets that come from the new raid, The Eternal Palace, and the megadungeon, Operation: Mechagon, will not be available at the launch of Patch 8.2. Collectors will need to wait for both of these zones to open on July 9, 2019.

With the addition of so many new pets, we're still in the process of updating our database. We'll continue to include new images, alternate skins, breeds, updated maps and more to the site as Patch 8.2 unfolds.

Some users may experience an error when importing their collection due to issues with the Blizzard API. We're currently looking into this, however it may need to be addressed on Blizzard's end.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Stratholme Pet Dungeon
Patch 8.2 adds an all new Pet Dungeon — Stratholme! [source]

The Stratholme Pet Dungeon contains 11 stages of nostalgic scenery and spooky encounters with a mix of Undead, Magic, Dragonkin, and Beast pet families.

Complete Normal mode to unlock Challenge mode, and earn the achievement Pet Battle Challenge: Stratholme plus Minimancer upon finishing the latter.

New to this Pet Dungeon:

Burnout
  • 4 purchasable pets (up from 3) using the Stratholme Pet Dungeon currency, Cleansed Remains
  • All vendor pets are Bind On Pick Up and not cageable
  • A hidden encounter and achievement, Malowned, that rewards the pet Burnout (pictured right)
  • A World Quest (or weekly quest, it's unclear at the moment) that pops up while inside that requires battlers to defeat Fras Siabi's pet team; rewards an additional Cleansed Remains


Learn more: Stratholme Pet Dungeon Overview

UPDATE: Battlers have discovered how to collect Burnout from the Stratholme Pet Dungeon!

Find and click on a letter on the ground while inside the scenario to unlock a mailbox. Interacting with this special mailbox will summon the NPC and his team. Defeating him awards the achievement and the pet! For more details, check out this post.

Naga, Mechagnomes, and Pets!
Nazjatar legendary boss pet
There are 2 new zones for players to explore, Nazjatar and Mechagon. Both include legendary "boss pet" battles (example pictured left), plus many new pets to collect.

Earn the achievement Team Aquashock and collect the adorable baby naga, Kelpfin, by capturing one of each wild pet from Nazjatar and Mechagon on top of defeating each of the legendary "boss pet" battles found in the zones.

Nazjatar & Mechagon Pet Achievements and Battles

There are many more pets to discover from Nazjatar and Mechagon, including drops from rare mobs, reputation rewards, new vendor pets, and even pets from hidden treasures.

Whether you're interested in battling, collecting, or both, Patch 8.2 has something for everyone. Travel into Stratholme or head out to Nazjatar and Mechagon and start your next Pet Battle adventure!

Patch 8.2 PTR: Mechagon & Nazjatar Pet Achievements and Battles

June 06, 2019
UPDATE: The secret of "slimy" pets has been discovered! Read more in its section toward the end of the post.

Collect, Battle, Achieve!
In addition to the upcoming Stratholme Pet Dungeon, there will be lots of pet-related activities to complete in the 2 new zones, Mechagon and Nazjatar in Patch 8.2.

Collect
Collectors will have their hands full with a total of 23 new wild pets found in the two new zones — 11 from Nazjatar and 12 from Mechagon (examples pictured below).

2 new wild Nazjatar pets, 2 new wild Mechagon pets

A few of these pets from each of the zones are either especially difficult to find (very low spawn chance) or single-spawns (only one up at a time). All wild pets on Nazjatar and Mechagon spawn in as level 25.

Rarer wild spawns (Nazjatar)

  • Bloodseeker
  • Hissing Chitterspine
  • Sandclaw Sunshell


Rarer wild spawns (Mechagon)

  • Experimental Roach
  • Duskytooth Snooter
  • Specimen 97
  • Yellow Junkhopper


Additionally, many Nazjatar and Mechagon wild pets come in multiple colors and breeds.

Wild pet from The Eternal Palace
A few of wild pets from Mechagon will also have a chance to spawn inside the megadungeon, Operation: Mechagon. The dungeon has an outdoor area where wild pets can (rarely) appear. There are additional wild pets to capture further inside the dungeon, however they are not required for any achievement.

Likewise, there are more wild battle pets to collect from inside the upcoming raid (example pictured right), The Eternal Palace, but these are not part of any achievement.

Collecting one of each from Nazjatar will reward Nazjatari Safari, and capturing one of each wild pet from Mechagon will reward the achievement Mecha-Safari. Both of these achievements are part of a meta-achievement, more on this down below.

Nazjatar legendary boss pet
Battle
Battlers will find new challenges on both Nazjatar and Mechagon.

Defeat 12 legendary level 25 "boss" pets on Nazjatar to earn Nautical Nuisances of Nazjatar. Each of these NPCs can be battled at any time and are repeatable, however there will also be a World Quest associated with one each day. Each one will drop a one-time quest item (rewards a nice chunk of reputation) after they've been defeated for the first time.

Mechagon legendary boss pet
Meanwhile, earn Mighty Minions of Mechagon by defeating all 8 legendary level 25 "boss" pets on Mechagon. These NPCs share the same properties as the Nazjatar pets; repeatable, can be battled at any time, and drops a one-time quest.

Achieve
Earning all 4 achievements listed above will complete the meta-achievement, Team Aquashock, which rewards an adorable baby naga pet, Kelpfin!

Looking for more? On top of new wild battle pets to capture and boss pets to defeat, there are many more pets to find and collect in both zones!

Blizzard's preview of 8.2 Mounts, Pets, and Toys

Slimy Pets?
Last but not least, there is one more collecting achievement specifically for Nazjatar, however it's unclear how we'll complete it at this time.

Obtain 1 of 7 possible "slimy battle pets to earn the From The Belly Of The Jelly achievement.

Slimy Darkhunter
  • Slimy Darkhunter (pictured right)
  • Slimy Eel
  • Slimy Fangtooth
  • Slimy Hermit Crab
  • Slimy Octopode
  • Slimy Otter
  • Slimy Sea Slug


The Pet Journal lists these pets as from "Treasure: Slimy Cocoon". It's unclear where or how we'll come across this item or object, so we'll have to wait for more information on these pets.

Update: @patf0rd on Twitter figured out how collectors will get their sticky hands on "slimy" pets!

  • Collect Prismatic Crystals (lootable crystals on Nazjatar)
  • Use crystal to charm a Nazjatar critter
  • "Feed" a Ravenous Slime (total of 4 different slimes) with charmed critter
  • Repeat for 5-6 days and the final day should spawn a lootable cocoon with a slimy pet inside!
