Patch 9.0 PTR: Shadowlands Pre-Patch Pet

August 11, 2020
The PTR has been updated to Patch 9.0 and testing is underway. Collectors won't want to miss out on this upcoming content — there might be a battle pet tied to the limited-time event! [source]

Putrid Geist
A new pet was revealed as "prelaunch event", the Putrid Geist (pictured right).

It's still unknown how players will obtain this battle pet, but it will likely involve participating in the pre-patch in-game event. Currently, the pet is Bind On Pick Up but it can be caged.

We're heading closer and closer to Shadowlands, which means a likely visit to Northrend and the infamous Icecrown Citadel. It's the perfect time to collect more Undead pets, right? We're sure no one will miss a geist or two...

Since I have never done any beta testing for WoW before I was unsure of the events regarding keeping or losing pets. I hope I get to keep him but if not then I have a reason to LIVE..well to at least play more oftern.

The pet is on the Argent Crusade quartermaster. Cost is 50 of the currency that drops from the mobs, which doesn't seem widely out of line from the rest of the items they sell, the armor sets are 25 per piece, so 200 for a set.

The pet, I assume that is tied to pre event launch in Release version (not for play in Beta Realms). Maybe the pre event will be 15 days before October 27th.

So I am assuming that if we get this pet during Beta we will keep it when we go Live in October?

 

When have we ever kept something from a wiped beta account to retail live?
