Patch 7.2 - 11 new pets, Pet Battle Dungeon, New Trainers
Patch 7.2 is live this week! There are new pets to collect, a Pet Battle Dungeon, and new trainers to challenge. [source]

New Pets
Are you ready to do some collecting? 7.2 is bringing 11 new pets!

Blood Whelpling, Frost Whelpling, Unholy Whelpling

  • 2 new pets from the new zone, Broken Shore
  • 3 new pets that have a chance to drop from the Pet Battle Dungeon challenge-mode reward bag
  • An achievement pet for completing the challenge version of the Pet Battle Dungeon
  • 5 new class-exclusive pets — three Death Knight companions (pictured above), one Monk pet, and one Rogue pet


Note that the Death Knight and Monk battle pets will not be available at the start of the patch. Unlocking these pets will require completion of the class mount quests.

It was clarified during the Developer 7.2 Q&A that the class mount quests will only be available after an 11 week campaign new to 7.2, and after you've earned Exalted reputation with Armies of Legionfall.

The Rogue class pet will also be unavailable until three weeks into the patch when the continuation of class campaigns unlocks.

Learn more about all 11 new pets!

It's Not A Pet But...
There's one more class-exclusive pet-related item that deserves an honorable mention. It's not a new pet, but it will certainly give your new pets a 'leg up', so to speak!

Following similar requirements and progression path as Death Knights and Monks, Mages can eventually unlock and purchase the Magical Saucer toy which allows your summoned battle pet to follow you even while you're on a flying mount. You'll never have to leave your pets behind again!

Mystery Inside the Pet Battle Dungeon
Something is amiss in the Wailing Caverns, and level 110 players with at least one level 25 battle pet can head over to Breanni's shop in Dalaran (Broken Isles) to start a new adventure.

Wailing Critters scenario
The follow up quest, Wailing Critters, sends you into a special Pet Battle Dungeon scenario. It only requires one max level pet, however it's recommended to have at least three.

Inside, you'll experience 6 Stages that include 8 standard battles and 3 Boss pet encounters.

For more detailed information on the Wailing Caverns Pet Battle Dungeon, check out our PTR overview.

Pet Battle Dungeon Overview

Turning in Wailing Critters will reward an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone, and unlock a Pet Battle Dungeon weekly quest.

The account-wide weekly quest, Pet Battle Challenge: Wailing Caverns, has the same objectives as its predecessor, however it requires at least 15 max level pets and you cannot heal or revive while inside the scenario.

Note: You do not need to complete the normal version of the Pet Battle Dungeon in order to access the challenge version each week.

Son of Skum
Conquering the challenge version of the Pet Battle Dungeon the first time will award an achievement and Son of Skum (pictured left)! The weekly quest also yields a new reward bag, Damp Pet Supplies, which has a chance to drop 3 new pets.

The conclusion to this short Pet Battle Dungeon quest chain leaves us wondering if there will be more similar content in the future. During the Developer 7.2 Q&A it was mentioned that future pet-dungeons will depend on player feedback and participation.

So are you ready to take on the challenge? Gather up your best battlers and help investigate the mystery inside the Wailing Caverns — your efforts will not go unrewarded!

New Broken Shore Trainers
If the Pet Battle Dungeon isn't enough to satisfy your battling needs, there are 3 new trainers on the Broken Shore.

Broken Shore trainers

These trainers are unlocked as World Quests on the new zone after completing the Broken Shore introductory scenario and quests.

All trainers have three epic level 25 pets each, and their associated World Quest rewards Pet Charms.



At this time, it does not appear that these new trainer encounters will award progress toward Family Familiar.

There's no shortage of activities in Patch 7.2 — what do you plan on tackling first? We certainly hope it's pet-related!

@Mahgra: There are currently two difficulties of the dungeon.

 

Normal - The initial quest/dungeon you'll complete. Requires at least one max level pet. You can heal and revive your pets while inside.

 

Challenge - The second version of the quest/dungeon. You'll only be offered the Challenge version if you have at least 15 level 25 pets. You cannot heal or revive your pets while inside.

Able to heal/revive while in the dungeon the first time, but then after that can't heal :(

@Mkh …wow. :(

 

Also, Weebominations are darker and smaller now, perhaps as a result of remodelling all abomination models.

I thoroughly enjoyed the dungeon! I didn't get a pet from the Damp Supplies, but the challenge was fun. :)

Anyone else notice that the Nether Faerie graphics changed with patch 7.2. It's no longer translucent and the wings are like the sprite darter now.

I *could* be wrong, but I am also suspecting pet XP may have been raised. Where at full buff, it took three battles with Squirt for level 25 before (even during Pet weekend), it's only taking 2 now. Battle 1 to level 19, 2 to 25.

 

Feel free to correct my memory on how much XP pets get from Squirt during a weekend if I'm wrong; I wouldn't want to get people's hopes up. However, nearly 14k pet XP, even during a pet weekend, definitely seems like more than she used to give!

Defeated Sissix almost first thing. I leveled a pet up to 25 in the process.

 

Ran the dungeon at both difficulty levels - and got the Young Venomfang pet in addition to Son of Skum! I used the leveling stone from the 1st quest to level up Corgnelius, just because he's so adorably cute. :)

 

That's pretty good for the first day, especially since the patch just went live about 7 hours ago!
