Patch 7.2 PTR: Order Hall Pets and New Pet Battle World Quests

February 02, 2017
A new 7.2 PTR build was released this week that included updates to a few Order Hall pets, and the introduction of new Pet Battle World Quests. [source]

Order Hall Pets
Class-specific pets received a little more love in the latest PTR build.

Blood Whelpling, Frost Whelpling, Unholy Whelpling

Previously, the 3 datamined Death Knight companions had placeholder models and skins. These whelplings now have updated appearances (pictured above), one representing each of the Death Knight specializations.

We still don't know much about these whelplings or how players will collect them.

Ban-Fu, Cub of Ban-Lu
There's also a new pet coming just for Monks — Ban-Fu, Cub of Ban-Lu. (pictured right)

Much like the Death Knight pets, it's currently unclear how Monks will obtain this new cub.

All 7.2 datamined pets

It would seem more and more class-specific battle pets are being released as we progress further into the expansion.

We can only wonder if all classes will eventually receive a collectible pet from their Order Hall. And if so, which class is next?

New World Quests
Completing a short storyline and new scenario in 7.2 will unlock a new area of the Broken Isles to explore — the Broken Shore.

Unlocking this zone will also grant access to new World Quests, a few of which might be of interest to Pet Battlers.

Broken Shore trainers

Players will find 3 new trainers on the Broken Shore. (pictured above)



New Pet Battle World Quests
Each trainer has three epic quality level 25 pets. They can only be battled if the associated World Quest is active.

At the moment these quests reward standard Pet Battle items, such as Pet Charms.

It's unknown if these new Pet Battle World Quests will grant credit toward Family Familiar.

We'll have more coverage of new updates and additions as PTR testing continues, so stay tuned!
