Patch 9.1 PTR: 46 New Pets, Pet Journal Cap Removed, and More

April 13, 2021
Patch 9.1 PTR - Chains of Domination
Patch 9.1 PTR opened this week, and we got our first preview of what's to come in the next major content patch, Chains of Domination. [source]

To start, there are new pets, the removal of the Pet Journal cap, and there changes to a couple of existing abilities. As this is the PTR, and we're only at the start of testing, everything is subject to change.

New Battle Pets
There are currently 46 new pets coming in Patch 9.1! Will there be more? We'll have to wait and see.

Many of the pets are still incomplete and Works In Progress, however we do know there will be new wild pets to capture from the new zone (Korthia), The Maw, and the new Mythic-only Mega-dungeon (Tazavesh, the Veiled Market). Expect some dropped pets, and there are even a few pets that will have an interesting source.

Baubleworms

A Broker in Oribos has 4 new pets for sale. One pet (pictured above, far left) has a staggering price tag of 10k Polished Pet Charms, so better start saving up!

The other three pets currently have a unique cost - grey items. It would seem this vendor is open to bartering. One of each item is required to buy all 3 of these new Baubleworms.

It's unclear if these are merely placeholder currencies, or if we'll truly be hunting for "junk" items to trade in. Game Developer Jeremy Feasel (aka: @Muffinus on Twitter) recently requested a list of players' favorite poor, common, or uncommon quality items in WoW, but that couldn't mean anything...could it?

Patch 9.1 PTR - 46 New Pets

Check out the full list of upcoming battle pets. We'll keep this list updated as more information is added to the PTR.

Pet Journal Cap Removed
Pet Journal feeling full? Stressed about having to hold off on collecting until the next journal increase? Good news, everybody!

Pet Journal cap removed in 9.1
In Patch 9.1 the Pet Journal cap will be removed. Collect as many or as few battle pets as you please! Note that there will still be a maximum of 3 duplicates per non-unique pet.

This is wonderful news for many collectors and battlers alike. Different colors, sizes, and breeds? "Gotta catch them all!" We're one step closer to realizing that statement.

Both items that previously increased the Pet Journal size will also become nonfunctional (removed), as they won't be necessary anymore. Our recommendation is to hold off on purchasing these items if you haven't already (save those Polished Pet Charms for that 10k pet), unless your Pet Journal is bursting at the seams and cannot hold out until Patch 9.1.

Ability Adjustments
Two pet abilities will be changed in 9.1, Explosive Brew and Sticky Grenade.

The updated tooltip removes the "This damage cannot be dodged, blocked, or avoided." portion, and the damage of each ability has been increased.

We're only at the beginning of the PTR, so it's possible there will be more changes in the future. Stay tuned for updates and previews of pets and Pet Battle content coming in Patch 9.1.

Charity Pet Program: Support Doctors Without Borders

March 19, 2021
UPDATE: As of March 24, 2021 we've reached the first donation goal of $500k USD!

Players can claim Bananas from the Blizzard Store (US)(EU) for free up until August 1, 2021. Those that already own Bananas will receive a second one.

The official announcement for Blizzard's Charity Pet Program was recently released. Support Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), an independent international medical humanitarian organization, and help unlock not one but two battle pets for everyone! [source]

Charity Pets: Daisy the sloth and Bananas
Details for the Charity Pet program are now available. Donate any amount to Doctors Without Borders between now and April 26, 2021, and help reach the following donation goals to unlock Bananas and Daisy the Sloth for everyone. All donations go directly to Doctors Without Borders.

  • Bananas goal: $500,000 USD
  • Daisy the Sloth goal: $1 million USD


Donate to Doctors Without Borders

Once respective donation goals are met, Bananas and Daisy will be claimable through August 1, 2021, regardless if you donated or not.

$1 million USD to unlock a new battle pet may seem like a lot, however almost all charity battle pets have raised over a million for good causes.

But if there's still some concern about meeting Daisy's donation goal, don't worry! Collectors will still be able to add this battle pet to their collection post-donation period, whether or not the $1 million donation goal has been met. According to the official post:

"Daisy will remain available for purchase in the Blizzard Shop or from the in-game shop August 2, 2021."

We can't wait to add Daisy to our collections. We'll update the WarcraftPets database with details on this pet once it becomes available.

COVID-19 Crisis Fund
Doctors Without Borders has created the COVID-19 Crisis Fund which will help provide aid in more than 70 countries to support those in dire need of relief from the effects of the pandemic.

Learn more about Doctors Without Borders' COVID-19 Crisis Fund, and donate or keep track of the donation goal progress on the Doctors Without Borders Donation Drive page.

Let's come together and help support Doctors Without Borders and their efforts to address the recent COVID-19 pandemic.

The Secret of Courage Solved!

March 11, 2021
Thanks to Deowulf-Dragonblight, Ariennelenna-Dragonblight, and Sita-Fenris, the secret of Courage has been solved! [source]

Courage
Courage is a shy larion cub, but can be coaxed out at Nemea's Retreat (slight northeast of Hero's Rest, above ground).

There are a total of 9 larion cubs at Nemea's Retreat. Gather enough players to interact with these cubs at the same time and Courage will appear.

Initially, it was believed that all 9 cubs needed to be interacted with at the same time. However, Wowhead has tested this further and found only 5 out of the 9 cubs need to be pet at the same time.

A couple of cubs are hovering and may seem out of range, but it's possible to pet them if you jump up and quickly click on them.

Pet 5 out of 9 larion cubs simultaneously and Courage will emote and appear next to Nemea for a short period of time (about 30-40 seconds). Interacting with Courage (NPC) will add the battle pet directly into your Pet journal. You don't need to have participated in the summoning to collect Courage, simply be present when the NPC spawns.

We're ecstatic that Courage has finally been found! Happy collecting!

Post-BlizzConline 2021 Wrap Up

February 20, 2021
It's a wrap for BlizzConline this year! With the current state of the world, it was a brief moment of respite watching previews of upcoming games, seeing fun community events, and reliving moments from previous BlizzCons.

There were some notable pet-related announcements, including two charity pets, plus teasers of new battle pets coming in Patch 9.1.

World of Warcraft Charity Pet Program

Unlike previous charity events, this World of Warcraft Charity Pet program will be a little different. Donate any amount directly to Blizzard's charity of choice and help reach a pre-set goal. Once that goal has been met, everyone will receive a pet! If the community manages to reach a stretch-goal, a second pet will be unlocked and awarded.

For the first Charity Pet program, players will be able to donate to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), a medical humanitarian aid organization.

Bananas
Upon reaching a to-be-announced donation goal, the pet Bananas (pictured left) will be awarded to everyone. This battle pet was initially released as part of the Through the Dark Portal WoW TCG set, which has since been discontinued. Bananas is currently obtainable in-game only through the Auction House/direct trades or rarely on the Black Market Auction House.

Daisy the Sloth
If the community reaches a stretch-goal, everyone will also receive Daisy the Sloth! This adorable sloth will have a unique interaction — she'll hang onto your back so you can carry her with you as you adventure through Azeroth, Shadowlands, and beyond. (pictured right)

Donation goals have not been announced yet, nor how players will be able to donate specifically toward each goal. We'll have to wait for a future announcement from Blizzard for details.

We're eager to learn more, and can't help but wonder what other limited-time or promotional pets might be part of this WoW Charity Pet program in the future. Which pets would you want to see made available again through this program?

Chains of Domination
What would a major content patch be without some battle pets to collect? In Patch 9.1 we'll see a number of new pets from multiple sources. [source]

The Maw
We'll be returning to The Maw for more activities, and what else? More battle pets to collect, of course! Who wouldn't want their very own Minion of Domination? (pictured below, far right)

The Maw new rewards

New Zone: Korthia
Although it wasn't explicitly stated, the new zone, Korthia, will probably have a few critters wandering around. What strange new creatures will we encounter?

Korthia, new zone

Tazavesh, the Veiled Market
Last but not least, we'll be heading into the mythic-only mega-dungeon, Tazavesh, the Veiled Market. The Brokers, seemingly collectors themselves, will have some interesting pets for us to obtain (pictured below, left).

Mega-dungeon rewards
Will these pets be wild? Or will some Brokers need some *ahem* convincing to relinquish their unique wares?

Patch 9.1 currently does not have a release date, however it's likely we'll see more information on this major content patch after Patch 9.0.5 is released (scheduled for March of this year).

Thank you to Blizzard for holding this unique virtual convention. Being able to gather together from a distance and celebrate games we all adore was a nice distraction during these turbulent times. We can't wait to learn more about the Charity Pet program as well as Patch 9.1!

BlizzConline 2021: New Netherwhelp Pet

February 01, 2021
BlizzConline 2021

Due to the ongoing pandemic, BlizzCon is being held virtually this year. The event, BlizzConline, will be on February 19th and 20th, 2021, and will be free to watch.

It was announced that the cosmetic items that normally come with the purchase of a BlizzCon ticket are available as separate bundles during this year's unique event. A new pet, the Moon-Touched Netherwhelp, is available from all 3 bundles. [source]

A New BlizzConline Pet
The Moon-Touched Netherwhelp (pictured below, right) can be obtained by purchasing one of the BlizzConline Celebration Collections.

Moon-Touched Netherwhelp
There are 3 possible tiers of rewards. The first is the least expensive and offers the minimum number of cosmetic rewards for Blizzard games, and the third tier is the most expensive but includes all possible Celebration Collection rewards.

The Moon-Touched Netherwhelp is from all 3 bundles, so take your pick!

  • First tier: Essentials Pack
  • Second tier: Heroic pack
  • Third tier: Epic pack


Check with your region's online Blizzard Store for pricing and availability. The Celebration Collections will be on sale through September 15, 2021.

We're ecstatic to welcome this new whelp to our battle pet family! There is some nostalgia as it's a second generation Netherwhelp, which was originally The Burning Crusade CE pet. Is the introduction of this whelp an indication that The Burning Crusade expansion will be coming soon to Classic WoW?

Will you be collecting this cute pet? Do you have the original Netherwhelp? And dare we ask, which of the two is your favorite? (Is it even possible to pick a favorite?)
