Post-BlizzCon 2013 Wrap Up and Pets in WoD

November 11, 2013
BlizzCon 2013 has come to an end, but we hope everyone had an amazing time!

The next WoW expansion was announced, and a new feature being added is garrisons. Players will be able to customize their own plot of land with upgrade-able buildings. One of these structures happens to be Pet Stables!

A BlizzCon attendee, @gloriaboboria, managed to speak briefly with developer Cory Stockton (aka: Mumper) and Tweeted more details on what the Pet Stables might entail.

Pet Breeding...?
Keep in mind that although Pet Stables within garrisons has been confirmed, the following features have not been officially announced yet, and things may change over the course of the development process.

  • Players will be able to breed pets within their garrisons. Epic pets may be the result of breeding. [source]
  • Better breeds through breeding, but the level cap will not be raised. [source]
  • The idea of "gem slots" to increase stats of pets has been replaced with the idea of breeding. [source]

Adding even more buzz to this, Mumper clarified their goal for pet breeding a little further in a Tweet.

"...current plan is you can merge two pets of the same family and pick the breed. Doing this gives chance at epic."

UPDATE: Cory Stockton Tweeted a few more details on pet breeding:

"Offspring's level will likely be an average of parent pet levels. Using battlestones in the breeding process might increase chances for an epic pet." [source]

"Breeding higher quality pets will give you a better chance for epic pets." [source]

"Players will be able to pick the breed of the offspring based on its parents' available breeds." [source]

The possibility of pet breeding is certainly intriguing, but we'll have to wait for more information and details. Warlords of Draenor is still a work in progress, so anything could happen!
