MoP Beta: Pet Journal and Account-Wide Collections

March 30, 2012
In the latest beta patch, Blizzard released an incomplete (yet mostly functional) Pet Journal and implemented account-wide pet collections. Along with these new features, many wild pets were added to Kalimdor and even a few new ones appeared in the Eastern Kingdoms.

Pet Journal Preview
The Pet Journal lists all available companions with the ones you currently do not own greyed out. Each pet has its very own viewable stats and abilities window, as well as a preview of what the companion model looks like.

You can utilize the Pet Journal for creating and previewing your team of three battle pets by dragging and dropping your desired companions into the three slots as seen in the video below.

In addition to being an integral part of Pet Battles, the Pet Journal is also used as a "stable" for all of your companions, and you can access your pets on all characters through the new journal.

Account-Wide Pet Collections
This feature is now available for testing. Here's what we've discovered about Account-Wide Collections so far:

  • You can access all pets in your collection on any character, even those of the opposite faction. (This may or may not be intended.)
  • At the moment, you can access all pets cross server too.
  • Faction-specific pets do not automatically turn into the companion of the faction you're accessing it from. For example: An alliance balloon will not become a horde balloon. Instead you must collect and learn both to have both pets in your collection.
  • Duplicate pets across multiple toons are merged into a single instance of the pet which is accessible through the Pet Journal. For example: If you have a Perky Pug on two characters, you will not have two Perky Pugs in your collection. Only one will be available in the journal.

Wild Pets List Updated
The list of all the Eastern Kingdoms Wild Pets and their locations have been updated on our forums. A Kalimdor Wild Pets thread is also growing in size as more pets are being discovered!

There are still some zones that haven't been populated with wild companions yet, but we expect those areas to be overflowing with critters in a future beta build.

Also, don't miss out on the gigantic list of all the possible pets listed in the Pet Journal on our forums! Keep in mind that many of these listed companions will probably not make it into the release of MoP as true vanity pets. We'll have to wait and see which ones make the cut and which ones will continue to be unavailable to players.

We'll keep these threads updated as changes are made to the Pet Journal and as more wild pets are added with each beta patch. Be sure to follow WarcraftPets on Twitter and Facebook for more frequent updates, screenshots and video as we continue combing the MoP beta for new pet goodies!
