Legion Alpha: Preview of Legion Pet Battle Quests

February 06, 2016
New Pet Battle Quests
In conjunction with the many pet NPCs and boss pets coming in Legion,
there will be new Pet Battle quests to complete.

Here's an early overview of the new quests. Keep in mind that these might be a work in progress, and more could be planned for the future.

  • 6 new daily quests
  • 1 new weekly quest
  • 5 new undefined quests

NPC offering weekly quest in Legion
The daily quests and weekly all reward four (4) Pet Charms each. These quests are account-wide, which could indicate that they're trainer dailies.

Oddly enough, Battle Pet Tamers: Warlords
is still offered by the Menagerie NPC (pictured right), who has moved to Breanni's shop in Dalaran.

We'll have to wait and see if this is just temporary, or if this quest will receive an appropriate update for the expansion.

It's not entirely clear what the five remaining undefined Pet Battle quests are, however one particular quest might provide some insight.

Hungry Like the Wolf
Hungry Icefang bonus objective
A Wowhead comment revealed that one of the undefined quests, Wildlife Protection Force, is a Bonus Objective found in Highmountain.

Hungry Icefang bonus objective
Approaching the Hungry Icefang will automatically trigger and accept the world quest (pictured right).

To complete it and save the adorable elderhorn calf, you'll need to defeat the Hungry Icefang in a Pet Battle.

The wolf is an epic quality elite NPC, accompanied by two random wild pets of varying breed and quality.

The Hungry Icefang is not always available to battle. When it spawns is seemingly random, and what causes it to appear is still a mystery.

Hungry Icefang and elderhorn calf
This quest, along with the four other undefined Pet Battle quests, are all set to reward a Common Bag of Loot, gold, and Highmountain Tribe reputation.

You can enter battle with the Hungry Icefang repeatedly, however defeating it doesn't yield any reward at the moment. We'd love to adopt the elderhorn calf though!

Hopefully these five Pet Battle Bonus Objectives plus new trainer dailies will keep us busy in the expansion. We can only hope that these quests are just the beginning of the Pet Battle adventures in Legion.

WOD was my first experience with a huge, new expansion.  So, this is most likely a reallly dumb question, but will we not be going back to our garrisons at all?  We will just move on to whatever Legion is and abandon everything in WOD?  If so, whatever is the point?  

I LOVE my garrison!  =(

awesome that theyre keeping the pet charms.  I'm wondering though if theyll let us keep the pet charms we have from the dailies in the garrisons.  Anyone have any idea?

That will be cool if they'll actually start implementing quest / pet battles.

Well, that is good news! I wasn't too sure we'd be able to get one of those lovely calves -and still am not- but seeing them in pet-related content sparks a renewed hope:)

That calf is absolutely adorable. I can't wait to see all of the new pets that will be available in Legion.
