Post-BlizzCon 2017 Wrap Up and Community Meet-Up

November 07, 2017
BlizzCon 2017 was an exciting whirlwind of previews and reveals for many Blizzard titles. We hope you enjoyed the celebration of all things Blizzard as much as we did!

Next Expansion & Pet Battles
WoW: Battle For Azeroth
The next expansion was announced during the convention, Battle For Azeroth! We can't wait to see what new battle pets await us in the new zones.

Tortollan NPCs - Tottle?
An interesting creature was shown during one of the panels — could this adolescent turtle (pictured right) be Tottle, a baby Tortollan pet that was datamined in Patch 7.3.2?

Although not much Pet Battle content was revealed during any of the WoW panels, Wowpedia had a chance to interview Developer Jeremy Feasel and touched briefly on the topic of pets.

Pet Battle?
Yes, going to keep expanding dungeons. No ideas yet, but it's definitely coming
Pet battle WQs are cool, that may keep going on too
Plenty of uprez'd pet models, including a new big fat fluffy cat gorging itself on fish

The fluffy cat?
Both big fluffy cat with a big body and big face, and also a big fluffy face with a regular cat body

We're intrigued by this new cat pet, however we'll have to wait to learn more. Once official testing/datamining begins we'll have more information and details on all of the upcoming Pet Battle content, so stay tuned.

What new pets do you think will make an appearance in the new zones?

Shadow Plushie Coming Soon
Shadow plushie coming soon
Coming soon to the Blizzard Gear Store is a plushie version of Shadow. (pictured above, image courtesy of Wowhead) From release through the end of the year, proceeds of this toy will be donated toward disaster relief efforts.

It was also announced that over years, collectors and Blizzard fans have helped generate over $15 million USD for charitable causes. What a heartwarming feat!

WarcraftPets Community Meet-Up
Once again, we'd like to thank Marzena for organizing and hosting this year's WarcraftPets Community Meet-Up. We hope everyone had a great time!

BlizzCon 2017 WarcraftPets Community Meet-Up
If you attended BlizzCon and signed the sign-in sheet at the WarcraftPets Community Meet-Up with your username, you're automatically entered into our Blizzard Store Pets giveaway!

Breanni will be conducting the raffle for 3 Store Pets this Thursday, and will contact the winners shortly after. Keep an eye on your email registered with WarcraftPets.

We look forward to the next BlizzCon and WarcraftPets gathering! And of course, thank you to ALL of our users for your continued support.

Introducing Connected Realms to Realm Leaderboards

November 11, 2017
UPDATE: Based on user feedback, we've made this new feature toggle-able.

Simply head to your Manage Account page, and click on Enabled/Disabled for the Connected Realm option (will take a moment to reload the page to save your preference).

Disabling Connected Realms will mean other users will view your rank based on your specific server on your profile page. Your default view on the Realm Leaderboards will also show rankings based on a single server, however this can be temporarily changed by checking Show Connected Realms and selecting Go to reload the Realm Leaderboards page.

Thank you to all of our users for your patience and feedback on the Connected Realms feature!

After much consideration, we're pleased to announce that the WarcraftPets Realm Leaderboards will now show Connected Realms for US and EU regions.

Example of Connected Realms listing
Realms that are grouped on a Connected Realm will be shown on the Leaderboards by default. Users part of the same Connected Realm will be listed with which server they originate from (example pictured right).

Note that the addition of Connected Realms may affect your current realm rank, as it calculates ranks based on all players across all servers in the same group. This shift in ranks will be shown on both the Realm Leaderboards page as well as the Realm & Rank section on profile pages.

Connected Realms will not change the Top 500 Pet Collections or your Site Rank listed on your profile page.

This change is a work in progress, and we're open to making additional adjustments based on community feedback. A discussion thread can be found in our Suggestions Forum.

Thank you to Weena, our Lead Website Developer, for his ongoing work on WarcraftPets. We have a few more website updates planned for the near future, so stay tuned.

And thank you to our members for your continued support!
