Patch 9.1 Live This Week: New Pets, Pet Journal Cap Removed, & More!

June 29, 2021
UPDATE: There's a new toy from Korthia that allows your battle pets to fly alongside you — Forgotten Feather!

In addition to a new toy, it's been discovered that Renown battle pets can now be summoned on any character, regardless of Covenant! Unfortunately, they can only be used in battle by the associated Covenant still.

Patch 9.1!
Patch 9.1, Chains of Domination, is live this week! Are you ready to collect new pets, a new trainer battle, and a bigger Pet Journal? [source]

New Pets
Chains of Domination includes 46 new battle pets! Here's a quick summary. Some pets won't be available until Season 2 of Shadowlands begins during the week of July 6th.

9.1 achievement pets - Mord'al Eveningstar & Sly

  • 21 pets that drop from various sources
  • 16 new wild pets from Korthia, The Maw, and Tazavesh, the Veiled Market
  • 6 vendor pets (including one pet that costs 10k Polished Pet Charms, we hope you've saved up!)
  • 2 pets from achievements (pictured above)
  • 1 created pet, similar to Carpal

Check out all 46 new pets!

A Bigger Pet Journal
The Pet Journal might be getting a bit full with all of these new battle pets. Worry not, our companion friends won't have to suffer in a cramped space anymore — the Pet Journal cap has been removed!

Pet Journal cap removed in 9.1
Patch 9.1 allows collectors to add as many battle pets to their journal as they please, however the limit of 3 duplicates for each non-unique pet still remains.

So what are you waiting for? There is a total of 1400+ battle pets to collect (note that some pets may no longer be available and/or region-locked). It's time to fill that Pet Journal up with all the pets!

New Trainer Daily
Anthea pet trainer
Anthea, the "Carefree Pet Tamer" (pictured right), can be found at at the Temple of the White Tiger in Kun-Lai Summit (south of the "W" in "White" on the map, across the bridge).

She offers an account-wide daily quest, Temple Throwdown. Her team consists of 3 epic level 25 pets (Mechanical, Flying, Beast), however they will scale to the highest level pet on your team.

Complete Anthea's quest and she'll reward you with a Grummlepouch, which has a chance to drop a new pet, a Squibbles of your very own. (Yes, we wish we could adopt Churro too.)

Why is this nightborne child alone in Kun-Lai Summit? Her parents left her in the temple's care while they went to defend the Shrines in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, or so she claims. It's a mystery what they were defending against. Anthea doesn't seem too concerned, as she only wants to Pet Battle. So bring your best team and give her a good fight!

Need some strategy ideas for this encounter? Check out Anthea's page on Xu-Fu's Pet Guides.
