Battle For Azeroth Adds 100+ Pets!

August 13, 2018
Battle For Azeroth is live

Battle For Azeroth is live this week, and adventures on Kul Tiras and Zandalar await — there are new battle pets to discover and collect!

New Pets In Battle For Azeroth
BFA adds 116 new pets! This is one of the largest number of pets available at the start of an expansion, coming in second only to Mists of Pandaria.

BFA achievement pets

Some highlights include:

  • 27 wild pets to capture
  • 7 profession crafted pets
  • 3 pets rewarded from achievements (pictured above)
  • 8 reputation pets
  • 32 pets from BFA vendors (includes the reputation pets)
  • ...and more!

With so many new pets, it's now possible to obtain Hearthy (reward from Master of Minions - collect 1000 pets).

Check out all BFA pets!

We're working on updating many pre-BFA pet profiles with images of the new models, plus updating the Pet Achievements Guide to include newer achievements. We plan on rolling out these updates in batches in the near future; thank you for your patience.

New Pet Battle Features In Battle For Azeroth
This expansion brings not only new pets, but also some interesting features. [source]

  • BFA Pet Battle World Quests (unlocked at level 120) scale to the highest level pet on a player's active pet team. It's unclear if this tech will be applied to pre-BFA content.
  • BFA Pet Battle encounters have new mechanics, such as "A powerful spell that summons a random Weather effect; Several additions to suite of Heals that will have increased effects based on your pet’s health; Aura effects that heal your pet (or damage the enemy pet) based on the last hit dealt".
  • Polished Pet Charm is a brand new currency that is used to buy consumables from the Pet Battle vendor, plus new pets and toys.
  • In case you missed out on it, the Pocket Pet Portal is now available on a BFA vendor for Polished Pet Charms.
  • There are 3 new fun companion pet toys in BFA - Laser Pointer for completing Battle on Zandalar and Kul Tiras achievement, plus Tiny Mechanical Mouse and Imaginary Gun which can both be purchased from BFA vendors for Polished Pet Charms.
  • Last but not least, a new cosmetic consumable, Ghostly Pet Biscuit (requires Honored with Order of Embers).

Notably missing at BFA's launch are the next Pet Battle Dungeon or Raiding With Leashes VI achievement. However, developer Jeremy Feasel noted in an interview with Forbes that there are plans for a new pet dungeon, the next Raiding With Leashes, as well as Family Familiar-style challenges. There's currently no specific date or patch set for these features. We can't wait to learn more as the expansion moves forward!

Thank you to Weena and Vephriel for volunteering their time to help update the WarcraftPets database with over 100 new pets and many revamped images. Thank you for your all of your hard work.

And a big, heartfelt thank you to all WarcraftPets users for your continued support. WarcraftPets wouldn't be possible without you.

We'll see you on Kul Tiras and Zandalar — happy collecting and battling!

Arji, yes, that was my error - I did not consider that they'd only unlock as World Quests.


I'm just a tiny bit disappointed that I've caught all the wild pets already, and so many are vendored instead.  It's going to take me ages, which I suspect was the intent, but everybody else has already stampeded to get to 120 and my rankings here will get stomped on. [/pout]

@Sffcorgi are you already lvl 120?


afaik they only offer fights when you're lvl 120, not?

The ones I came past had the title "Master Tamer .." and there was no fight to be seen.

Pity that everything is great in theory but in practice you can not collect more than 1000 pets !


Already 2 patches since released and no fix for this.

I found a Master Tamer while questing last night, but she had no battle for me.  Was it War Mode, or are they just not 'up and running yet', might anyone know?

Thank you for all your dedication to this site. Very much appreciated, as always. I'm really excited about a lot of the new pets to be acquired in BfA! Have 6 wild pets, so far... 


My favorite, so farrr, is the Honey Bee. Sooo cute :) Love how it falls asleep every once in a while lol.

That seems...a friggin huge number of pet charms. Unless quests are rewarding like 50 per that seems a tad excessive. The number of vendor pets to wild pets is also rather annoying. I'm fine with vendor pets, but we got 32 gated behind  pet charm/rep grinds and only 27 that we can actually go out and tame on our own?

@Telepatra: You'll need 5100 charms for the new vendor pets, and 750 charms for the new toys. Total is 5850 Polished Pet Charms for everything.

The only reason I might come back for BfA is the pets -- nothing else I've seen makes me interested in the game anymore.

Thanks for all your work! I just wanted to double check, is the correct amount of pet charms to get all the new ones 4650? That was my napkin math from last night.
