Patch 7.2 PTR: New Pets and Pet Battle Dungeon

January 21, 2017
Nameless Mystic
UPDATE: Site Director of Wowhead, @perculia, discovered another new trainer on the 7.2 PTR — Nameless Mystic (pictured right)!

This NPC can be found on the Broken Shore, and is located on the hill above the area where Drak'thul is (south-west of Deliverance Point in southern Broken Shore).

Similar to Sissix, interacting with this NPC currently does not start a Pet Battle.

The PTR is up and running with the next patch, ready for testing. 7.2 will bring us 8 new pets, possibly new trainers, and the long-awaited Pet Battle Dungeon! [source]

New Pets
Currently there are 8 datamined pets coming in Patch 7.2. Here's a summary of what's to come:

  • 3 Death Knight-themed whelplings
  • 3 dropped pets from a new reward bag
  • 1 battle pet from the Rogue Order Hall
  • 1 pet (pictured right) from an unknown source

All 7.2 datamined pets

The new whelplings currently use Placeholder Pet Journal entries, and it's unclear where they (and the undead canine) will come from.

A Hearthstone-themed battle pet model was also datamined by Wowhead, however it does not currently appear in the PTR Pet Journal.

Stay tuned, we'll have more updates on these pets as PTR testing continues.

New Trainer?
@Mononic1 on Twitter discovered a new possible trainer hiding in the Broken Isles in 7.2. [source]

This new trainer is named Sissix (pictured right). She's located near the eastern-most flightpath on the Broken Shore.

At the moment, interacting with her only brings up a short dialogue and does not start a Pet Battle.

We can only speculate what new challenge she has for us. Could there be more hidden trainers in the upcoming patch? We'll have to wait and see!

New Feature: Pet Battle Dungeon!
Very briefly mentioned during BlizzCon 2016, the Pet Battle Dungeon was (and still is) a highly anticipated feature. The good news is that it is currently up and ready for testing on the 7.2 PTR!

Keep in mind that this content is still undergoing testing and is subject to change. You can leave constructive feedback on the Pet Battle Dungeon on the forums or in our dedicated forum thread.

The Pet Battle Dungeon begins with a quest in Dalaran (Broken Isles). Head to Breanni's shop and an NPC will offer you a new quest (A Call From the Caverns) if you are level 110 and have at least one level 25 battle pet.

Skull entrance outside Wailing Caverns
This quest sends you to Wailing Caverns in Northern Barrens. Find Muyani above ground, outside of the dungeon; she's located in the left eye-socket of the skull entrance (pictured above).

Muyani is concerned about a growing (pet) menace inside Wailing Caverns and would like you to investigate.

Wailing Critters scenario
The follow-up quest, Wailing Critters, sends you inside a new instanced version of the dungeon. Simply speak with her again to queue into the scenario.

There are 7 Stages in this Pet Battle Dungeon, comprised of 11 different encounters you'll need to complete. Be prepared to set aside some time for some serious Pet Battling.

All enemy pets are level 25 and have either the Elite or Boss passive. Note the opponents during Stage 1, as these 3 pet-types will be found throughout the dungeon.

Growing Ectoplasm

Detailed overview of 7.2 Pet Battle Dungeon

Opponent teams are "locked" per instance. You can speak with the NPC at the start of the dungeon to teleport out, but it will reset your progress and possibly change the second and third pets on the enemy teams.

Unlike the Celestial Tournament, you can heal and revive your pets in this version of the dungeon. But rest assured, there's a challenge waiting for those seeking it!

Completing the dungeon and turning in the quest rewards an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone. We're left with a cliffhanger for now, but hopefully this hints that future Pet Battle content will continue the story of this mysterious and ominous Shadowy Figure!

After turning in Wailing Critters, Muyani will have another quest for you. This quest will only appear if you have enough level 25 pets (possibly 15 max level pets, the same requirement as the Celestial Tournament).

Damp Pet Supplies reward bag
The next quest, Pet Battle Challenge: Wailing Caverns, is an account-wide weekly quest similar to the Celestial Tournament: NO healing or reviving in the challenge version of the scenario.

It yields a new reward bag, Damp Pet Supplies, which has a chance to drop 3 new pets.

Patch 7.2 is shaping up to be a big patch for Pet Battlers and collectors! Are you ready for a new challenge?

I'm looking forward to Pet Dungeon.  They could expand on this idea with rare drops and rewards.  Like upgrading stones, toys, a cool mount, rare cagable pets, etc.

I love the pet battles and I can honestly say I have so many favourites, and am looking forward to collecting the new pets.

Yay! Glad they are adding more class specific pets. Just wish I was able to sell/trade my extra Broots.

Saw there was a new rogue pet until I saw the name.

It's gonna be a freakin parrot and that is totally lame. So tired of parrots.

Loving this but wished it was a token system like the celestial tournament for the new pets; hate RNG bags!

I'm sure I'm not alone when I get excited every time a new ptr build drops to see the new pets.
