A New Best Friend
Dottie
Dottie (pictured right) is now available for adoption from the Blizzard Store.

For the month of December 2019, 100% of the adoption proceeds will be donated evenly between two charities, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and WE.org.

In addition to a cute in-game battle pet there's a separate baby alpaca plushie. Proceeds from every Dottie plushie purchase up until December 31, 2019 will also be donated to the two charities noted above.

The adoption fee for Dottie (in-game battle pet) is $10 USD, while the separate toy plushie costs $29.99 USD.

Will you be making Dottie your new best friend? Adopt this little bundle of bouncy joy and help worthy charitable causes at the same time.

Don't forget to check out Dottie's adorable introduction video!


We've added Dottie to our database, however it may take a little time before collections are updated with this new pet. We'll continue to monitor things and update her pet profile in the near future. Thanks for your understanding and patience.

Patch 8.3 PTR: New Pets, Achievements & More, Upcoming Changes

November 16, 2019
The PTR was updated with lots of Pet Battle content! New pets, achievements, and World Quests.

Additionally, Blizzard released information on upcoming changes to specific pet abilities, as well as plans for post-BFA tuning.

New Pets, Achievements, World Quests
Collectors will have many new companions to adopt in Patch 8.3. Lots were added since our last PTR coverage, bringing the current total to 32 new pets! Here's a quick summary.

    Gloop from fishing
  • Drops from the Ny'alotha, the Waking City raid, treasures in Horrific Visions scenarios, two new faction Paragon caches, and from creatures/rarespawns in zones that are under N'Zoth's assault.
  • New wild pets found in zones that are under N'Zoth's assault.
  • A new pet from fishing (pictured right)
  • An achievement reward related to Horrific Visions scenarios
  • Purchasable pets from the Blackrock Depths Pet Dungeon vendor, and two new reputation vendors (latter requires Revered)


Check out all pets from 8.3 PTR

Be An Awesome Achiever
New achievements in Patch 8.3 include two new Pet Dungeon achievements, and one for completing all objectives in Horrific Visions scenarios.



World Quest It Up
There will be 8 new World Quests in the two zones under assault from N'Zoth (Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms). [source]

New WQ NPC
Battlers will face off against level 25 legendary quality (tiny) minions of N'Zoth (example pictured left). Each one has the Elite buff.

These new NPCs cannot be battled unless their associated WQ is active. We'll have to wait and see if this is intended. There are currently no Family Familiar-style achievements tied to these encounters.

There's a lot to do in Visions of N'Zoth, including a new Pet Dungeon which we'll cover in a post in the near future. What are you most looking forward to? New battling challenges? New pets to collect? Serving N'Zoth ...*ahem* Defeating N'Zoth's minions?

Patch 8.3 Changes & Beyond
Blizzard announced some upcoming buffs (and possible nerfs) to a few pet abilities and strategies. [source]

Certain weather abilities will be receiving a buff in the upcoming patch. A new weather type is also coming in 8.3.

  • Blizzard - Now also increases all elemental ability damage by 25%.
  • Mudslide - Now also increases all critical damage dealt by 25%.
  • *NEW* Toxic Fumes - Increases the duration of all hostile damage over time effects by 1 round. All pets are considered Poisoned while Toxic Fumes is active.


On top of this, some changes to previous content: Nazjatar and Mechagon Pet Battle World Quests, and WQs and wild battles in Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms will scale to the highest level pet on your active team.

In the Future
Blizzard will be looking at other abilities for balancing, however we will probably not see any changes to these until next expansion.

  • Black Claw and similar abilities that increase damage taken by a flat amount.
  • Hunting Party and similar abilities such as Flock.
  • The Shattered Defenses debuff effect from abilities such as Hunting Party or Flock.
  • Any large percent-damage-taken or percent-damage-dealt buffs or debuffs.
  • Twilight Meteorite and similar long-cooldown damage-splitting abilities.
  • The Jar of Smelly Liquid ability.


Be sure to check out Blizzard's full announcement on upcoming and possible Pet Battle buffs and nerfs.

What are your thoughts on the proposed changes? Feel free to leave your feedback on Blizzard's official post (NA or EU) or on our 8.3 Updates/Changes forum thread.

Post-BlizzCon 2019 Wrap Up

November 03, 2019
There were some amazing reveals at BlizzCon this year, and most notably for pet collectors and battlers was the announcement of the next WoW expansion, Shadowlands, plus an upcoming charity pet.

Shadowlands Epic Edition Pet
Shadowlands expansion
Our adventures post-BFA will be to unknown lands with fascinating denizens and creatures. Ready to collect and battle your way through a whole new world?

Anima Wyrmling
The next expansion, Shadowlands, is now available for pre-purchase.

Players that buy the Epic Edition of the game will receive multiple in-game goodies, including the Anima Wyrmling battle pet (pictured right). This pet is added directly to the Pet Journal after purchasing Shadowlands Epic Edition.

Be sure to check out the Blizzard Store to learn more about all editions of Shadowlands.

  • Epic Edition - $79.99 USD / EUR74.99
  • Epic Edition Complete Collection - $109.99 USD / EUR99.99


No official release date has been announced for Shadowlands, however the Epic Edition pet and other in-game rewards are available right now.

The Anima Wyrmling's pet profile is live here on WarcraftPets, however like with most newly added pets, some users might have trouble importing it from their character's armory. We'll be monitoring this pet and any potential issues that might pop up. Thank you for your patience.

Pet Content In Shadowlands?
Speaking of Shadowlands, Wowhead recently conducted an interview with Senior Game Designer Jeremy Feasel. [source]

Feasel briefly noted some intriguing news about Uuna and Covenant battle pets. Here's a quick summary. Be sure to check out the interview for his full comment.

Uuna
  • As someone that has had experience with the darkness and death, Uuna may have some interesting comments about the Shadowlands. Perhaps we should speak with her once we've entered the other world?
  • Each Shadowlands Covenant has an exclusive battle pet reward, and these pets have secret interactions with the world around them.


There will probably be more Pet Battle content coming in Shadowlands, and this is just the tip of the iceberg. New wild pets to collect, trainers to battle, challenges and achievements, maybe even the next Raiding With Leashes chapter? There are many possibilities! What kind of Pet Battle content are you hoping to see in Shadowlands?

Upcoming Charity Pet
Last but not least, a new charity pet was announced for release in the near future, Dottie the baby alpaca (pictured below)!

Dottie
Much like previous charity pets, for a limited time proceeds from Dottie's adoption fee will be donated to charity. This year the charity organizations are the Make-A-Wish Foundation and WE Charity.

An official release date has not been announced yet for this plucky alpaca, however it's likely she'll be available some time starting this December.

Feasel shared some fun trivia about Dottie: she has a specially-made animation.

Stay tuned for updates on when this companion will be available. We're so eager to meet her! "Dolly and Dot are my best friends..." ...and so is Dottie (Soon™)!

Recruit-A-Friend Returns: Rikki Now Available, Plus Pet Score Changes!

October 22, 2019
New Recruit-A-Friend Pet
Blizzard has relaunched the Recruit-A-Friend program, which means a new pet is now available: Rikki (pictured below, right). [source]

Rikki
Players that recruit a friend (or themselves) can earn Rikki once their recruit adds at least one month of game time to the RAF account.

To get started, simply head to the Social window in-game and select the Recruit tab. Generate a recruitment link (link does not expire until a listed date) that you can send to friends or even yourself. Once eligible for your reward, head back to the Recruit tab in the Social window to claim Rikki.

Unlike the previous version of the RAF program, recruiters don't have to wait to collect this pet. Rikki can be redeemed as soon as the appropriate amount of game time is applied. (Note that his may not apply to additional RAF rewards, as game time seems to be added on a monthly basis.) This pet is then added directly to your Pet Journal.

With his safari hat, vest, and trusty banana, Rikki looks ready to join you on your adventures — will you be recruiting him to your team?

Pet Score Changes
You may have noticed a shift in realm and site rankings. Don't worry, you're not seeing things!

We've recently adjusted how the Pet Score is calculated. Each level 25 pet in your collection is now worth more, and non-combat pets have been given a small score boost.

Learn more about Pet Score Changes

Note that these changes are not retroactive, so you'll need to re-import your collection to see an updated Pet Score.

Patch 8.3 PTR: New Pets & Pet Dungeon

October 07, 2019
Patch 8.3 - Visions of N'zoth
Blizzard recently released a preview of Patch 8.3, Visions of N'zoth. [source]

Additionally, the 8.3 PTR is now up and running, and datamining has begun. Good news for Pet Battlers: a new Pet Dungeon and more pets to collect!

New Pets
There are currently 2 new pets coming in 8.3.

  • Void-Scarred Pup - Drop: Visions of N'zoth - Orgrimmar
  • Void-Scarred Toad - Drop: Visions of N'zoth - Orgrimmar


Check out 8.3 PTR datamined pets

The Visions of N'zoth is solo and group content where players experience an alternate Orgrimmar and Stormwind. Learn more about Visions of N'zoth here.

New Pet Dungeon
Battlers will have 2 new achievements to aim for in 8.3. Both revolve around Pet Dungeons, including a new one, Blackrock Depths! [source]

Shadow Stopper meta-achievement


The latter is a meta-achievement and requires the completion of all previously implemented Pet Battle Dungeons. It's likely the reward is only a placeholder.

We can only wonder what this meta-achievement will mean for the future of Pet Dungeons. Will we finally discover who the 'Shadowy Figures' are, and perhaps see a conclusion to the Pet Dungeon storyline? Will the meta-achievement serve as a wrap-up and Blackrock Depths will be the last dungeon adventure with our critter friends?

The Blackrock Depths Pet Dungeon is not yet available for testing on the PTR, so we'll have to wait and see. Stay tuned for a preview of what to expect inside.

We can't wait to see what else Patch 8.3 has in store for us! With this being an 'old god' patch, what kind of spooky battle pets are you hoping to collect?

BlizzCon 2019: Two New Murloc Pets

October 01, 2019
2019 BlizzCon in-game WoW rewards
BlizzCon 2019 attendees and Virtual Ticket holders can now collect two new murloc battle pets! [source]

Finduin and Gillvanas (pictured above) are now available to add to your collection. Simply purchase the 2019 Virtual Ticket and then check your Pet Journal in-game. (BlizzCon attendees will receive a code via email.) Go to your journal and click on the gift icons in the journal preview window to unwrap your new friends!

Although players will obtain both pets, these murlocs are faction-specific. Only Horde can summon Gillvanas, and Finduin is Alliance-only.

Both pets have some fun and interesting idle animations. Gillvanas will occasionally turn into a banshee and wail, while Finduin is equipped with his very own Power Word: Barrier animation. Each also summons their very own companion (Pets... for Your Pets?!, anyone?) — Finduin summons a wolf pup named Genji, and Gillvanas will call for an undead named Kevinos. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that the two murlocs interact with each other.

We'll be adding Finduin and Gillvanas to our database in the near future. Thanks for your patience.
