Patch 8.2 Live This Week: 90 New Pets, Stratholme Pet Dungeon & More

June 25, 2019
UPDATE: We're aware of the import error afflicting users. It appears to be an issue on Blizzard's end. Until they fix the API issue, try using this workaround to get your WarcraftPets collection up-to-date. It seems to work for most users, but not all. Apologies for the inconvenience; hopefully this is addressed soon.

UPDATE #2: Blizzard has resolved this issue. Thanks for your patience.

Patch 8.2 - 90 new pets, Stratholme Pet Dungeon and more!
Patch 8.2 is live this week. There are many new pets to collect, a new Pet Dungeon to conquer, and more. [source]

Many New Pets
Rise of Azshara patch adds 90 new pets! Here's a quick summary:

  • 41 dropped
  • 31 wild
  • 7 from vendors
  • 4 from the new Pet Dungeon vendor
  • 3 achievement rewards
  • 2 crafted
  • 2 quest rewards


Check out all Patch 8.2 pets!

Pets that come from the new raid, The Eternal Palace, and the megadungeon, Operation: Mechagon, will not be available at the launch of Patch 8.2. Collectors will need to wait for both of these zones to open on July 9, 2019.

With the addition of so many new pets, we're still in the process of updating our database. We'll continue to include new images, alternate skins, breeds, updated maps and more to the site as Patch 8.2 unfolds.

Some users may experience an error when importing their collection due to issues with the Blizzard API. We're currently looking into this, however it may need to be addressed on Blizzard's end.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Stratholme Pet Dungeon
Patch 8.2 adds an all new Pet Dungeon — Stratholme! [source]

The Stratholme Pet Dungeon contains 11 stages of nostalgic scenery and spooky encounters with a mix of Undead, Magic, Dragonkin, and Beast pet families.

Complete Normal mode to unlock Challenge mode, and earn the achievement Pet Battle Challenge: Stratholme plus Minimancer upon finishing the latter.

New to this Pet Dungeon:

Burnout
  • 4 purchasable pets (up from 3) using the Stratholme Pet Dungeon currency, Cleansed Remains
  • All vendor pets are Bind On Pick Up and not cageable
  • A hidden encounter and achievement, Malowned, that rewards the pet Burnout (pictured right)
  • A World Quest (or weekly quest, it's unclear at the moment) that pops up while inside that requires battlers to defeat Fras Siabi's pet team; rewards an additional Cleansed Remains


Learn more: Stratholme Pet Dungeon Overview

UPDATE: Battlers have discovered how to collect Burnout from the Stratholme Pet Dungeon!

Find and click on a letter on the ground while inside the scenario to unlock a mailbox. Interacting with this special mailbox will summon the NPC and his team. Defeating him awards the achievement and the pet! For more details, check out this post.

Naga, Mechagnomes, and Pets!
Nazjatar legendary boss pet
There are 2 new zones for players to explore, Nazjatar and Mechagon. Both include legendary "boss pet" battles (example pictured left), plus many new pets to collect.

Earn the achievement Team Aquashock and collect the adorable baby naga, Kelpfin, by capturing one of each wild pet from Nazjatar and Mechagon on top of defeating each of the legendary "boss pet" battles found in the zones.

Nazjatar & Mechagon Pet Achievements and Battles

There are many more pets to discover from Nazjatar and Mechagon, including drops from rare mobs, reputation rewards, new vendor pets, and even pets from hidden treasures.

Whether you're interested in battling, collecting, or both, Patch 8.2 has something for everyone. Travel into Stratholme or head out to Nazjatar and Mechagon and start your next Pet Battle adventure!

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.

Collect
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
Battle
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.

Achieve
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!

Blizzard's preview of 8.2 Mounts, Pets, and Toys

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!

WoW's 15th Anniversary: Coming Soon — Lil' Nefarian

May 14, 2019
WoW 15th Anniversary
WoW will be celebrating its 15th anniversary in November of this year. Blizzard released details on what we can expect during the celebratory event, including a collectible Lil' Nefarian!

Upcoming Anniversary Rewards
Lil' Nefarian
To commemorate WoW's 15th anniversary, Blizzard will be releasing special goodies, such as an Anniversary Collector's Edition Box that comes with many physical rewards plus new in-game mounts.

In addition to physical items, the in-game Anniversary Event will also feature the Obsidian Worldbreaker mount and Lil' Nefarian battle pet (pictured right)! [source]

The mount will require the completion of an upcoming special anniversary 25-man raid, however the pet will be rewarded to all players that simply log on during the event.

More details on the in-game event will be provided in the future. Blizzard's official press release on the anniversary can be found here.

We can't wait to add Lil' Nefarian to our ever-growing battle pet family. Speaking of family... Lil' Deathwing and Onyxian Whelpling are sure to give Lil' Nefarian the warmest of welcomes.

Recruit-A-Friend Program Going On Hiatus Soon

May 10, 2019
Blizzard recently announced that they will be putting the Recruit-A-Friend program on hold, starting June 11, 2019, for an unknown amount of time. [source]

Recruit-A-Friend (RAF) is heading into the workshop! The longstanding RAF program is going on hiatus while we construct something new that makes it even more rewarding to introduce your friends to World of Warcraft. As of June 11, 2019, the current program will come to an end, and you’ll no longer be able to send new RAF invitations. Don’t worry though—the program will be back in its new form before you know it.

To take advantage of the current RAF program, your friend will need to link a qualifying WoW account to yours before June 11, and will have 90 days to purchase game time to trigger any rewards.* Check out the RAF web page for the details on the current program and the available rewards.

We look forward to sharing the details of the new RAF program with you in the future!

*Recruited friends must not already have a World of Warcraft account, or their account must be fewer than 30 days old. Link period lasts for 90 days after your friend's account was first created.


4 Recruit-A-Friend pets

There are currently 4 battle pet rewards (pictured above) from Recruit-A-Friend (plus 5 mounts). The pets are BoP and cannot be caged.



In light of the hiatus, pet enthusiasts may want to consider collecting these battle pets sooner rather than later. Check out our Community Guide on How to Recruit Yourself.

It's unclear what will become of these rewards, what changes will be made, and when the program will return. Hopefully more information will be available in the near future.

Patch 8.2 PTR: Stratholme Pet Dungeon Overview

May 02, 2019
UPDATE: Another achievement that's likely related to the Stratholme Pet Dungeon was added, Malowned. This achievement requires defeating Postmaster Malown in a pet battle, and it rewards the Burnout battle pet.

To summon Malown, players will need to find and click on a Discarded Letter. This object is small and usually hidden near boxes; there are multiple spawn locations within the dungeon. After interacting with the letter, click on the mailbox located in the area just before Stage 10, and Malown will appear shortly after.

Stratholme Pet Dungeon is finally open for testing on the 8.2 PTR! We dove right in and here are some insights on what to expect — SPOILERS ahead!

Note that due to the nature of the PTR, the following may not be final and could change prior to release.

Tiny Take-Over Of Stratholme
Word around town is that something sinister is happening in a certain ruined city in northern Eastern Plaguelands. Who or what could overtake an already diseased and Undead-overrun place like Stratholme? Let's send in our battle pets to find out!

In Patch 8.2, level 120 Horde can speak with Radek Fuselock (nearby Happy Holaua) in Dazar'alor, and level 120 Alliance can talk to Tizzy Gearjolt (outside Dana Pull's store) in Boralus to pick up the breadcrumb quest, 'Restless Dead', which leads to Argent Crusade member Sean Wilkers, just outside of backdoor Stratholme.

In addition to being a quest NPC, he is also the Stratholme Pet Dungeon vendor. Unlike previous Pet Dungeons that offered only 3 pets to purchase, Sean Wilkers sells a total of 4 new pets, plus an Unopened Stratholme Supply Crate.

4 new Stratholme pets

Each pet will require Cleansed Remains, is Bind On Pick Up, and cannot be caged. Players will need a total of 9 Cleansed Remains to buy one of each pet.



After completing 'Restless Dead', the next quest is 'Tiny Terrors of Stratholme'. Completing it will reward an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone, and the ability to teleport using Manapoof directly to backdoor Stratholme.

Minimancer
The challenge version of this Pet Dungeon is also unlocked upon turning in 'Tiny Terrors of Stratholme'. Pick up and complete the account-wide weekly quest, 'Pet Battle Challenge: Stratholme', to earn Cleansed Remains.

Same as previous Pet Dungeons, completing the Challenge version of the scenario will award an achievement of the same name and players will earn a new pet. The pet reward this time is Minimancer (pictured left)!

Inside Stratholme Pet Dungeon
The Stratholme Pet Dungeon has a total of 11 stages. Enemy pet teams are a mix of Undead, Magic, Dragonkin, and Beast families, plus a few battles have an additional twist to them!

Inside Stratholme Pet Dungeon
There are 11 pet encounters — all enemy pets are level 25. Here's a quick breakdown of each stage.


Liz the Tormentor



As noted above, a few of these battles have additional mechanics and may not be the usual, straightforward fight. Nefarious Terry and Blackmane both have passives that transform upon their 'defeat'.

We hope you're ready to help cleanse Stratholme. Get your battle pets ready; these Shadowy Figures causing critter chaos aren't going to go down without a fight.
