Shadowlands Alpha: Datamining Begins!

April 09, 2020
Shadowlands Alpha
Datamining of Shadowlands has begun, and there are loads of fun and exciting new models.

We hope to be able to show everyone the new battle pet content ourselves soon, but for now we're grateful for previews from Wowhead's datamining.

Shadowlands Pet Previews
Although we don't have concrete confirmation that the following datamined models will be collectible companions, it seems very likely.

baby unicorns
There are new baby unicorns horse2* (examples pictured right, courtesy of Wowhead) and foxes (examples pictured above, courtesy of Wowhead)!

If you're searching for a spookier pet, the Sin Stone Golem might be for you.

Have you ever wondered what the Crawling Claw would look like if it traveled to Shadowlands? You're in luck! A new skeletal hand pet was datamined.

To top off this initial preview, there's even a... skeletal spine... battle pet? We'll have to wait and see how that one works out.

Check out Wowhead's page to view all datamined new models (including the golem and skeletal pets mentioned above). There are many more fox and unicorn colors pictured on their page. [source]

Also notable are new Shadowlands icons. It's interesting to speculate which ones will belong to yet-to-be-previewed battle pets! [source]

Which new model or creature do you hope to collect in the upcoming expansion?

Covenant Rewards
Blizzard recently released an overview of Bastion and the Kyrian Covenant. [source]

Pet collectors will note that one of the cosmetic rewards for earning enough esteem with the Kyrian Covenant is a pet.

Kyrian Covenant Spoils

For your contributions to the Kyrian Covenant’s cause, you’ll be rewarded with several cosmetic rewards including: a mount, a pet, Kyrian-forged armor, and back attachments that rival the beauty of Kyrian wings.

As mentioned at BlizzCon 2019, each Covenant will have its own themed pet. There's currently no preview of what the Kyrian pet will be, but we can't wait to learn more.

Any idea yet if there will be new pet charms for Shadowlands or is it safe to stockpile my Polished Pet Charms?

Thanks for the tip. Very happy I can do Worldquest petbattles on 7 chars, 647 polished now, one or two days more and I'll be able to have 2000 pets. Think I'll get there till Shadowlands Alpha. A lot of new pets to look out for.

Yeah @Trotinette account data copy didn't include my 2000 pets limit -.- Think you'll need to grind your 1000 Polished Charms on Alpha to get all slots and better do it before they (maybe) change the rewards of BfA content to Shiny Pet Charms ;-)

Thanks for keeping us updated. Somehow, my alpha invite got lost in the mail :)


I wonder if the unicorn is a hue changer like Shadow?


I'm interested to see how things evolve. Hard to imagine we'll get as many pets as we have in this Xpac.

Looking forward to it. Hope that we will be able to collect more than 1500 pets, I have two of some pets I use most.
