Patch 7.2 PTR: New Pet & Toy, Plus Pet Battle Dungeon Update

March 02, 2017
The latest 7.2 PTR patch included a new pet and fun toy, plus a Pet Battle Dungeon update. [source]

Going Batty
Orphaned Felbat
A new pet was added to the 7.2 PTR — Orphaned Felbat! (pictured right)

The Pet Journal currently lists this little bat as from a Legionfall Chest.

It's unclear if this chest will be a reward from the new Armies of Legionfall reputation emissary, or some other lootable item/object.

This pet is Bind On Pick Up, but is cageable.

We'll have more information on how to collect this pet as it becomes available. Hopefully this bat will get along with its cousins, the Firebat Pup and Felbat Pup.

Fly My Pretties!
Mages will have a fun new battle pet toy to look forward to in 7.2.

Magical Saucer toy
Upon completing the achievement Power Ascended (empower an artifact weapon and unlock every trait), Mages will be able to purchase a Magical Saucer for 10k 1k Order Resources (pictured right, image courtesy of @Mononic1).

This toy allows battle pets that are usually grounded to fly alongside you while on your flying mount. Now all of your companions can accompany you on all of your adventures!

We have to wonder, will this toy work with all battle pets? Some companions already have the ability to fly with players, so perhaps the Magical Saucer will just provide those pets with a much needed break.

It's unclear if all classes will be able to use this toy once added to your collection, but we speculate that this will be the case.

We look forward to discovering how this neat toy will interact with different pets.

Pet Battle Dungeon Update
We recently previewed the Wailing Caverns Pet Battle Dungeon, however it's received a small update since then.

All encounters within the scenario are accompanied by two additional enemy pets.

Boss pet team Pet Battle Dungeon
However, this now also includes the "boss" battles (example pictured left) which were previously single pet fights.

Note: The two backline pets do not have the Boss passive.

In addition to this change, all non-boss encounters are now on the same level as your average, everyday wild battle. The enemy pets on these teams no longer have the Elite passive.

We can't wait to hop into the Pet Battle Dungeon, but how about you? Are your pets ready for a new adventure?

The bat looks great, but I'm rather sad that I now need to add a Mage to the list of classes that I need to level up for this patch. That toy is just way too awesome.

Ah I saw the felbat already but for some reason I thought it was a hunter pet.  Nice to see we have another one to hunt for!  Can't wait for the pet battle dungeons
