October 18, 2018

Preview of New Pets
11 new pets (plus Feathers was renamed to Proper Parrot) were included in the recent PTR patch. This brings the current 8.1 battle pet count to 23!

7 new Battle for Darkshore Warfront pets

Here's a quick summary of what was added:

  • 7 pets from Battle for Darkshore Warfront pets (pictured above)
  • 4 raptor pets from "Pet Battle" (wild? see below)

Updated Smoochums appearance
Check out all 8.1 battle pets

Smoochums, although not a new pet to 8.1, is receiving an updated appearance (pictured right).

Our graphic artist is currently unavailable, so we hope this quick preview will suffice! Stay tuned for the release of 8.1 and new WarcraftPets pet profiles, complete with better quality images.

Raptor Hatchling Speculation
Where will we find these 4 new adorable bundles of teeth, claws, and feathers? It's unclear at the moment, but one possibility is that they could be from a feature similar to the falcosaur hatchling storyline. Keep in mind that this is unconfirmed and the following is purely speculation!

4 new raptor hatchlings

The raptor pets are currently flagged as "Pet Battle" which usually indicates that they are wild or they must be defeated in a Pet Battle to receive the pet. However, the only known NPC battle pets coming in 8.1 are in the Gnomeregan Pet Battle Dungeon. Are there hidden raptor NPCs out there, similar to the orphaned falcosaur hatchlings, waiting to be found?

These pets are currently cageable, except for the Baby Zandalari Raptor. This is uncharacteristic for wild, captured pets. Could this simply be an oversight, or could it indicate more?

It should be noted that additional ravasaurs will be coming in Patch 8.1, and there are a few that match the same colors as the pets. And last but not least, there's a Baby Zandalari Raptor NPC (same name as one of the new pets), however it is not a battle-able pet.

All of these tidbits paint an interesting picture so far, however it's far from complete. The PTR is a Work In Progress and things could change. It's fun to speculate but we'll have to wait and see how we'll obtain these pets. We can't wait to learn more!

Patch 8.1 PTR: New Pets & Achievements, Gnomeregan Pet Dungeon Update

October 05, 2018
This week's PTR build added new pets and achievements, and Gnomeregan Pet Dungeon updates. [source]

New Pets
The PTR was updated with 6 new pets!

  • Alarm-O-Dog (pictured right) - Gnomeregan Pet Dungeon vendor
  • Leper Rat - Gnomeregan Pet Dungeon vendor
  • Mechanical Cockroach - Gnomeregan Pet Dungeon vendor
  • Mechantula - Engineering
  • Mini Spider Tank - Achievement reward
  • Wicker Wraith - Achievement reward

Check out all 8.1 pets

This brings the current total number of upcoming pets to 12! We'll have to wait and see if this is the final count, or if there will be even more waiting for us.

New Achievements
Mini Spider Tank
Patch 8.1 will add the new achievement, Pet Battle Challenge: Gnomeregan. Completing the Challenge version of the Pet Dungeon (cannot heal or revive pets while inside the scenario) will award the Mini Spider Tank! (pictured right)

The next set of "Family" achievements will also be available in Patch 8.1.

Similar to Legion's Family Familiar, the new achievement requires players to defeat 15 trainers on Kul Tiras or Zandalar with a full team of the same pet family. There is a total of 19 possible pet trainers in BFA, so you can pick and choose which encounters to use for this achievement.

Unlike Family Familiar at the beginning of Legion, the BFA pet trainers can be battled multiple times, even when the associated World Quest is not active. You won't have to wait for a specific trainer to pop up — complete this challenge at your own pace!

The meta-achievement, Family Battler, rewards a spooky looking pet, the Wicker Wraith.

Gnomeregan Pet Dungeon Updates
There were multiple updates to the upcoming Gnomeregan Pet Dungeon, including the opening of the scenario, ready for testing.

Shadowy Figure inside Gnomeregan Pet Dungeon
Max level players can begin their adventure into the Gnomeregan Pet Dungeon by speaking with Rachel Kurall Tizzy Gearjolt (Alliance, outside of Dana Pull's store) or Tanzil Radek Fuselock (Horde, inside Happy Haloaua's residence). Pick up the breadcrumb quest, Trouble in Gnomeregan, and you're ready to go!

It's likely there will be prerequisites for the newest Pet Dungeon. While we can't say with certainty at this time, possible requirements may include having completed the previous 2 Pet Dungeons (Wailing Caverns and Deadmines), and/or having a certain number of max level battle pets.

Once inside, players will need to complete 9 stages, with a total of 12 different Pet Battle encounters. Enemy pets include max level Mechanical, Elemental, Critter, and Undead pet types, ranging from rare quality to epic.

  • Stage 1: One epic Mechanical
  • Stage 2: 3 encounters with 3 rare Elementals and their teams
  • Stage 3: One encounter with 3 epic Elementals
  • Stage 4: N/A
  • Stage 5: 2 encounters with 1 Undead and 1 Critter, plus their teams
  • Stage 6: One epic Undead
  • Stage 7: 3 encounters with 3 rare Mechanicals
  • Stage 8: N/A
  • Stage 9: One epic Mechanical

Completing the Pet Dungeon will award an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone, plus the ability to teleport directly to Micro Zoox by speaking to Manapoof in Boralus or Dazar'alor. It also unlocks the weekly quest, Pet Battle Challenge: Gnomeregan, which is necessary to earn the achievement of the same name.

Micro Zoox's inventory
The dungeon's vendor, Micro Zoox, had his inventory updated to include 3 new pets, the Engineering schematic for the new pet Mechantula, plus the standard Supply Bag. All items cost Pristine Gizmos. This new currency is earned by completing the weekly challenge version of the Gnomeregan Pet Dungeon.

We can't wait for this content to come in Patch 8.1! The mystery of the "Shadowy Figure" found inside these Pet Dungeons goes on — will we ever discover these NPCs' identities?

Import Bug and Incorrect Collection Count

October 02, 2018
UPDATE: Blizzard believes they have fixed the API issue.

Please contact us if you are still experiencing errors when importing your collection to WarcraftPets.

Users have been reporting errors when trying to update their WarcraftPets collection.

After looking into this, we've found that there is currently an issue with the Blizzard API handler that is causing imports to time out and only register partial portions of collections. In some cases, it does not update at all. [source]

This seems to be mainly affecting the EU-region, however some US/NA players may also experience some errors or incorrect collection counts when re-importing to WarcraftPets.

Blizzard is aware of this issue and are investigating; hopefully it can be resolved in the near future.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.

Patch 8.1 PTR: New Pets, Pet Dungeon, & New Pet Portal

September 29, 2018
UPDATE: Community Manager Kaivax clarified that purchasing the Interdimensional Pet Portal will require already having used the Pocket Pet Portal.

Additionally, it's possible we'll see other ways to earn Polished Pet Charms in the future.

The latest PTR build added new pets, a few details regarding the upcoming Gnomeregan Pet Battle Dungeon, plus an item to increase the size of your Pet Journal even further. [source]

New Pets
At least 5 new pets (pictured below) will be coming in Patch 8.1. (But we're sure there will be more!)

5 New 8.1 Pets

  • Enchanted Tiki Mask (see below for more information)
  • Child of Pa'ku
  • Feathers
  • Redridge Tarantula
  • Spawn of Krag'wa
  • Thunder Lizard Runt

Check out all 8.1 pets

Enchanted Tiki Mask
It should be noted that the Enchanted Tiki Mask (pictured right) is not actually new. It was added to the database at BFA's release. The recipe to craft it and its Pet Journal entry were not yet implemented at the time, but Enchanters will finally have a way to create this neat companion in Patch 8.1.

The Pet Journal entries for most of these pets seem to be somewhat incomplete, so it's not entirely clear how we'll obtain each one.

There is also an interesting schematic for Engineers, Schematic: Mechantula. The recipe itself says it creates a follower equipment item, however a pet named Mechantula (not included in the PTR Pet Journal at the time of this article) was datamined. We'll have to wait for a future PTR build to see if this schematic will teach Engineers how to craft this pet.

We'll have more updates as the PTR continues, so stay tuned!

Gnomeregan Pet Dungeon
It was previously announced that the Gnomeregan Pet Battle Dungeon would be coming in Patch 8.1. We now have an early preview of what this dungeon will have in store for battlers. (The dungeon is not open for testing yet on the PTR.)

There appears to be 9 stages while in the scenario. [source]
1. Automated Defenses - The automated defenses of Gnomeregan have been activated!

2. Out of Control Elementals - Defeat the Living Elementals.

3. Pull the Correct Levers - Use the correct sequence of levers to activate the Door Control Console.

4. Bypass the Mine Field - Ride the Bomb Stomper 5000 through the deadly field of Bomb Bots.

5. Resilient Critters - Defeat the critters that somehow survive in this place.

6. You Dirty Rat - There's a Leper Rat of unusual size guarding that door. It looks mean.

7. Gnomeregan Defense Force, Activate! - Defeat the Gnomeregan Defense Force.

8. Shadowy Figure - Someone has telepoted into the room. Confront them!

9. Thermaplugg's Latest Invention - Mekgineer Thermaplugg has left his latest invention here as the last bastion of defense for Gnomeregan. Smash it!

Micro Zoox
Datamining also revealed that there will be a new currency tied to the Gnomeregan Pet Dungeon, Pristine Gizmo.

A new vendor, Micro Zoox (pictured right), can be found at the entrance of the Gnomeregan dungeon.

He currently sells Unopened Gnomeregan Supply Box and Schematic: Mechantula. It's possible that new pets will appear in his inventory, and players will be able to purchase them in exchange for Gizmos. We'll have to wait and see!

Bigger Is Better!
If you're having trouble finding space for all of BFA's new pets, this one's for you! Last but not least, the recent PTR update added a new item, Interdimensional Pet Portal.

Interdimensional Pet Portal
This item upgrades the Pet Journal to allow 2,000 total pets! Currently, it is sold on the PTR by the same BFA vendors that sell the new pet toys, and costs 1,000 Polished Pet Charms. It does not require having learned the previous journal upgrade, Pocket Pet Portal, at this time. No other requirements are necessary to learn the new Pet Portal. Keep in mind this might be subject to change.

It is still fairly early on in the PTR phase, so we expect to see changes, updates, and hopefully even more pet additions in future builds.

New Blizzard Store Pet Now Available: Cap'n Crackers

September 19, 2018
UPDATE: Blizzard recently released a hotfix that gives Cap'n Crackers to ability to respond to the /whistle. He will now sit on your character's shoulder if you target and use this emote! [source]

Unfortunately, Cap'n Crackers doesn't get along with Crackers. If you already have either one on your shoulder, summoning the other will result in the one sitting on your shoulder to despawn. They don't like sharing their perch, it would seem.

Cap'n Crackers
Just in time for "Talk Like A Pirate Day", a new battle pet was added to the Blizzard Store. Meet Cap'n Crackers! [source]

Cap'n Crackers (pictured right) costs $10 (USD), and can be purchased from either the In-Game Shop or the online Blizzard Store.

We'll have this pet's profile added to the database as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

So ye goin' to take thee plunge and adopt this adorable pirate parrot? Yarr, Cap'n Crackers is ready to go on some epic adventures. If ye show him a good time, maybe he'll even make ye his first mate!

New Pet Battle Dungeon Coming Soon!

September 18, 2018
Coming soon to the PTR is the next major content patch, Tides of Vengeance. Blizzard gave us a brief preview today, and yes, there's Pet Battle content! [source]

New Pet Battle Dungeon
The Gnomeregan Pet Battle Dungeon will be coming in the next content patch!

BFA achievement pets

You can view the full WoW Developer stream on Twitch.

No other details are available at this time, but we won't have to wait too long to learn more. Players might begin testing Tides of Vengeance on the PTR as early as the end of this week. Keep in mind that new Pet Battle content may not be available at the start of the testing cycle.

We can't wait to check out the Gnomeregan Pet Battle Dungeon. Will there be additional Pet Battle content or pets to collect? We'll have to wait and see. Stay tuned for more updates and news as testing on the PTR progresses!
