Upcoming Pet Charm Changes In Patch 8.0

June 30, 2018
UPDATE: Blizzard has announced that the pre-patch will be live on July 17th. [source]

The pre-expansion patch is just around the corner. There will be a significant change to Pet Charms that Pet Battlers and collectors will want to take note of. [source]

Reminder: Spend Your Pet Charms Soon
In upcoming Patch 8.0 Pet Charms will be renamed to Shiny Pet Charms, and the Pet Battle vendors, Lio the Lioness and Serr'ah, will stop accepting this existing currency in exchange for their wares.

Players will not lose any currency during this transition, and Shiny Pet Charms will still be used to purchase existing vendor pets and toys. Additionally, pre-Battle For Azeroth Pet Battle content will continue awarding Shiny Pet Charms.

However, a new currency, Polished Pet Charm, will be required to purchase battlestones, pet bandages, biscuits and treats, cosmetic pug hats, plus any new Battle For Azeroth pets and toys.

Pet Battle vendor requiring new currency
The price of the Ultimate Battle-Training Stone is also being increased from 45 to 60 on top of requiring Polished Pet Charms to purchase, in the pre-expansion patch. (example from PTR pictured above)

Polished Pet Charms can only be earned in the expansion, so if you need any battle pet consumables it would be wise to stock up while vendors are still accepting existing currency (Pet Charms).

The bottom line: If you want consumables from the Pet Battle vendors, either to use right now or to stock up for Battle For Azeroth, spend your Pet Charms before the pre-expansion patch! (Patch 8.0 estimated release date mid-July 2018)

We're inching closer and closer to the expansion — it's exciting and we can't wait!

Will the purchased items from today work on pets acquired in the new expansion or will they only work on pets established in the old expansions?

I have 15 of the Ultimate (lvl 25) stones, and trade in the Flawless Family stones for the Marked Flawless, now I am buying the bags with the Family Battle Stones.  I only use the lvl 25 on lvl 1 pets.  Any pets I have lvl 10+ I battle to get them to 22/23 then use the Family Stones to get them to lvl 25.

 

With 4 toons that have daily instant WQ complete, makes collecting charms and stones easy :)

So what is everyone doing with them?  I still have over 5000 and I have bought 400 level stones 50 of each pet treat, 40 blue stones.  

 

How many new pets are there?  How many blue stones should I have?

vega - buy that stuff with your current pet charms now before the pre-expansion 8.0 patch goes live... once that happens, you'll have to get the new currency to buy that stuff... and the old charms will only be used for the pets and stuff on those old vendors

 

ryu - right. that's the point. but it's not too bad. i have almost enough max-level stones for all of the new pets... so having stockpiled still pays off and cuts a lot of time down.

It's a bummer we'll have to grind all over again, since the total of all the new vendor pets is around 4k charms; but at the same time, if there was no conversion, there'd be nothing to really work for with so many people able to just buy them right out.
