Patch 8.2 PTR: Mechagon & Nazjatar Pet Achievements and Battles

June 06, 2019
UPDATE: The secret of "slimy" pets has been discovered! Read more in its section toward the end of the post.

Collect, Battle, Achieve!
In addition to the upcoming Stratholme Pet Dungeon, there will be lots of pet-related activities to complete in the 2 new zones, Mechagon and Nazjatar in Patch 8.2.

Collectors will have their hands full with a total of 23 new wild pets found in the two new zones — 11 from Nazjatar and 12 from Mechagon (examples pictured below).

2 new wild Nazjatar pets, 2 new wild Mechagon pets

A few of these pets from each of the zones are either especially difficult to find (very low spawn chance) or single-spawns (only one up at a time). All wild pets on Nazjatar and Mechagon spawn in as level 25.

Rarer wild spawns (Nazjatar)

  • Bloodseeker
  • Hissing Chitterspine
  • Sandclaw Sunshell

Rarer wild spawns (Mechagon)

  • Experimental Roach
  • Duskytooth Snooter
  • Specimen 97
  • Yellow Junkhopper

Additionally, many Nazjatar and Mechagon wild pets come in multiple colors and breeds.

Wild pet from The Eternal Palace
A few of wild pets from Mechagon will also have a chance to spawn inside the megadungeon, Operation: Mechagon. The dungeon has an outdoor area where wild pets can (rarely) appear. There are additional wild pets to capture further inside the dungeon, however they are not required for any achievement.

Likewise, there are more wild battle pets to collect from inside the upcoming raid (example pictured right), The Eternal Palace, but these are not part of any achievement.

Collecting one of each from Nazjatar will reward Nazjatari Safari, and capturing one of each wild pet from Mechagon will reward the achievement Mecha-Safari. Both of these achievements are part of a meta-achievement, more on this down below.

Nazjatar legendary boss pet
Battlers will find new challenges on both Nazjatar and Mechagon.

Defeat 12 legendary level 25 "boss" pets on Nazjatar to earn Nautical Nuisances of Nazjatar. Each of these NPCs can be battled at any time and are repeatable, however there will also be a World Quest associated with one each day. Each one will drop a one-time quest item (rewards a nice chunk of reputation) after they've been defeated for the first time.

Mechagon legendary boss pet
Meanwhile, earn Mighty Minions of Mechagon by defeating all 8 legendary level 25 "boss" pets on Mechagon. These NPCs share the same properties as the Nazjatar pets; repeatable, can be battled at any time, and drops a one-time quest.

Earning all 4 achievements listed above will complete the meta-achievement, Team Aquashock, which rewards an adorable baby naga pet, Kelpfin!

Looking for more? On top of new wild battle pets to capture and boss pets to defeat, there are many more pets to find and collect in both zones!

Slimy Pets?
Last but not least, there is one more collecting achievement specifically for Nazjatar, however it's unclear how we'll complete it at this time.

Obtain 1 of 7 possible "slimy battle pets to earn the From The Belly Of The Jelly achievement.

Slimy Darkhunter
  • Slimy Darkhunter (pictured right)
  • Slimy Eel
  • Slimy Fangtooth
  • Slimy Hermit Crab
  • Slimy Octopode
  • Slimy Otter
  • Slimy Sea Slug

The Pet Journal lists these pets as from "Treasure: Slimy Cocoon". It's unclear where or how we'll come across this item or object, so we'll have to wait for more information on these pets.

Update: @patf0rd on Twitter figured out how collectors will get their sticky hands on "slimy" pets!

  • Collect Prismatic Crystals (lootable crystals on Nazjatar)
  • Use crystal to charm a Nazjatar critter
  • "Feed" a Ravenous Slime (total of 4 different slimes) with charmed critter
  • Repeat for 5-6 days and the final day should spawn a lootable cocoon with a slimy pet inside!

Yeah I'm looking at breed options as well, base stat is different and breed selection varies. The odd thing is the same movement, yet different models. With 7 of these, I'm thinking spreading breeds out, like 2x SS, 2x PP and some HP / HH / PB.



Wowhead has a good starter list of waypoints but its far from complete. Playing 3 days into the patch I've added 12 more waypoints, essentially in the same areas, but different node spawn. You want to look for waterfalls and the small rivers that follow these.

Farm Crystals at waterfalls until you get 20. To find them look at the top and bottom of the falls. They respawn quickly so keep looking.


Feed a non-aquatic pet a crystal by clicking on the pet, then the crystal. Get close to the slime and it will grab the bug. You can do 4 a day at these different slims.

Here are the coordinates of 4 slims:


/way 54,48

/way 32,39

/way 45,24

/way 71,25

@FuxieDK: The pet that's looted from a slimy cocoon is indeed a random one out of possible 7.


However, there are 4 different slimes that can all be "cycled" during the same week. So 4 slimy cocoons = 4 chances each week. If you're lucky and get a different pet from each one every time, you only need ~2 weeks' worth of slimy cocoons to collect all 7 'slimy pets'. RNG is RNG, as always though!

So, a week of work for "a slimy pet". Does that mean random? And we'll need to repeat next week for a new random pet? For a total of 7 weeks? Or mor weeks because of duplicates?
