New Pet Families Coming In Battle For Azeroth?

April 01, 2018
We recently gained access to the Battle For Azeroth Alpha, and datamining has revealed some intriguing Pet Battle content... new pet families?!

5 New Sub-Categories & A Brand New Family
We've uncovered a handful of BFA pets that belong to a new set of sub-family categories. These pets still belong to the "main" pet family (Magic and the new sub-family Dark Magic, for example), however the new families seem to be unique and have an additional passive on top of their existing passive.

There are 5 of these new families so far. It's unclear if all 10 pet families will receive sub-categories. There is also a brand new family of pets, "Antlered"!

All pets appear to be Works In Progress, as their stats, movesets, and bonus family passives are missing or labeled as "PH" (placeholder).

What's for sure is that these new pets and families look interesting so far!

Those are good...lol

 

I could actually see the Bio Mechanical and Dark Magic familes, becasue they would fit with what is in game already, but the others, not so much.  Though the "Nekkid Humanoid" family would fit in well over on Moon Guard lol :)

I kinda actually want a "Dark Magic" category, especially if they have that black aura like the two examples do. :3

Aw man, if only Locatus would actually be in WoW, I'd love a Trekkie pet. We'd have to defeat a Borg cube, obviously, in order to get it.

*shakes fist in anger at April 1st*
