Patch 6.1 PTR: Raiding With Leashes III — New Pets

January 11, 2015
UPDATE: PTR servers are now available!

According to the PTR Pet Journal the Race MiniZep is indeed from the Darkmoon Faire, however it's still unclear how we'll earn this pet.

Patch 6.1 will be available for testing on the PTR in the near future, however datamining on Patch 6.1 has already begun. An exciting achievement was discovered along with many new pets. [source]

New Achievement and Pets
Black Temple, Hyjal Summit, and Sunwell Plateau
In Patch 6.1 an achievement that we've been looking forward to will finally be implemented — Raiding with Leashes III: Drinkin' From the Sunwell!

This achievement is the third installment in a chain of similar pet collecting challenges. In each version, players need to travel to older raid zones and collect pets that the bosses have been secretly hiding. Who knew that some of these big baddies had a soft spot for a pet or two?

To complete this new achievement, collectors will need to venture into Black Temple, Hyjal Summit, and Sunwell Plateau. A total of 12 pets will come from these three raids.

Collecting all 12 pets listed above rewards you with yet another pet, Holy Chime which teaches K'ute. With a name like that, we can only hope that it's a cute Naaru!

Two other pets were also datamined but they are unrelated to the Raiding with Leashes achievement.

Currently there's no information on where the Race MiniZep Controller will come from, however Patch 6.1 will implement a new racing challenge at the Darkmoon Faire. Do collectors need to win a race to earn a racing pet? We'll have to wait and see if that's the case.

Last but not least, My Special Pet was also datamined. This pet appears to be incomplete or a placeholder of sorts. We can only wonder what this pet will be revealed as, and if it will be available to players.

New Battle-Stone
Ever wish you could instantly level a pet to 25? In Patch 6.1 you might be able to! The Ultimate Battle-Training Stone was datamined, but the source of this stone is still unknown.

A similar stone was implemented during the WoD Beta, the Mythical Battle-Pet Stone. Unfortunately, this particular Battle-Stone was only for testing purposes and was not released on live servers.

We still don't know if the Ultimate Battle-Training Stone will end up like the Mythical version and remain unavailable post-testing. However, there are a few notable differences between the two that indicate the new Battle-Stone could be worthy for release.

  • The Ultimate Battle-Training Stone is consumed when used
  • Has an item level of 100
  • Is not unique
  • Has a player level requirement of 90

While these details are indeed tantalizing, we'll have to wait and see what the fate of this new Battle-Stone will be.

Abbotta, the trading card game pets are still very much obtainable, they are found in the ah regularly and can appear in the black market ah also.


Also to the comment about it being all magic and undead, the wretched servant is humanoid, and I think the hydra was aquatic? Not sure of the last one though.

Maybe they should have called it Demon / Undead Edition


All but 1 (Sunblade Rune of Activation) seem to be Magic or Undead... not that I am complaining as they need some love...

I totally agree with Hyjal... Maybe if they are adding RwL, they will 'fix' some of the pain of having to get through it. Like how they made Lady Vashj solo-able, and 'tried' to make Spine of Deathwing easier to solo. The worst is the horde camp, where you have to run everywhere to kill all the adds. At least Rage Winterchill is MUCH easier to solo post 6.0. On the plus side, with 19 toons at 93 plus, and gaining every day, I will ROFLstomp all 3 raids each week for max chances at drops.

I'm not looking forward to running Hyjal again (it takes so long!), but these will be nice to have. Hopefully won't be too hard to get all three pets from the Relinquary of Souls.

So if you use that new battle stone on a level 1 pet, it will gain 25 levels and therefore become level 26?? #Math

Yay, my (now second) favorite expansion is getting raid pets. Can't wait to collect them all.

I know I am excited.  I just hit 500 pets and it will be tough for me to hit 600.  There are some pets I will never be able to obtain since they were related to events prior to my serious collecting (anniversary pets and trading cards).  These extra 13 pets will give me a chance to hit my 600 mark!
