Dragonflight Alpha: New Pets, Achievements & More

July 15, 2022
UPDATE: The change to the Pet Battle Bonus Event is only a tooltip update. Bonus pet experience was changed in Patch 9.1.5, and the tooltip will be receiving an update to reflect that change.

Dragonflight Alpha is finally underway. New battle pets have been datamined, plus new collecting achievements, and changes to the Pet Battle Bonus Event. Keep in mind that all things are subject to change over the course of Alpha and Beta testing.

New Pets
103 battle pets have been datamined so far! 40 non-tradeable (includes 13 wild, 4 achievement rewards), and 62 cageable. [source]

Six of the wild battle pets (pictured above) found in Dragonflight will come in multiple skins (not pictured). Choose your favorite color or collect them all!

New Achievements
Dragonflight will have four new pet collecting achievements that reward a new pet each (pictured below). [source]

There are currently 1522 battle pets in-game (this number includes pets that are no longer available) so it might be some time before players can earn all of these newest achievements.

Bonus Event Changes
UPDATE: This is only a tooltip change. Pet experience during the Pet Battle Bonus Event was updated in Patch 9.1.5, and the tooltip is being adjusted to reflect those changes.

Has anyone seen any indication that they might change the pet charm currency for DF? I haven't yet so I'm hoping they won't

Only 13 wild pets so far that sounds rather low, I want to fight pets to collect them not farm some zone so I can feed parts into a machine to "build" them.

Update: The noted changed to the Pet Battle Bonus Event is only a tooltip update. Pet experience was already adjusted in Patch 9.1.5 (I even wrote about it but completely forgot lol), and the description for the event is just being updated to properly reflect that change.


Thanks to everyone that pointed it out to me, and sorry for any confusion!

In comparison to toys and mounts, the numbers for pet achievements are unusually high. It's the same sort of unrealistic number as the two pets for PVP Honor.  I have 1501 pets. Will Dragonflight have 500 new pets for me to reach the ultimate goal or is this another one of those wait-years-for-completion achievements. 

I think we should do a "letter" writing campaign similar to the outcry over the hideous award for collecting 500 mounts.  It worked for mounts so why not pets?

Why on earth are they nerfing the event? Seems rather short-sighted.
