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
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
A Wowhead comment revealed that one of the undefined quests, Wildlife Protection Force, is a Bonus Objective found in Highmountain.
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.
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.
