Patch 8.2 Notes related to Pet Battle

– In Build 8.2.0.30262 (May 1st) we see 3 new achievements added for pet battles: Team Aquashock   Complete all of the Nazjatar and Mechagon pet battle achievements listed below. Reward: Kelpfin https://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=154822 https://ptr.wowhead.com/achievement=13695 Mecha-Safari   Catch every battle pet on Mechagon Island. https://ptr.wowhead.com/achievement=13693 Nazjatari Safari   Catch every battle pet in Nazjatar. https://ptr.wowhead.com/achievement=13694 – In Build 8.2.0.30168 (April 23rd) we’ve seen more than the usual battle pet additions datamined. Instead, we had the stages and achievement incl. reward for completing the normal version of Stratholme pet battle dungeon. So here we go… New Pet Battle Dungeon Stratholme: Pet Battle Challenge: Stratholme   Complete the Pet Battle Challenge in Stratholme Reward: Evil Wizard Hat The Evil Wizard Hat will learn you the battle pet Minimancer, in earlier builds it was called D1ZZ-E, so maybe the model (right now one of the new mechs) and abilities (12 are listed on wowhead, but these include all of the RWL6 reward pet Happiness) will see a revamp to match the undead Stratholme scenario and not Mechagon setting. (in the journal it’s now a skeleton gnome with hat) Scenario Stages: Stage 1: Did That Just Come Out of its Mouth? Defeat the Belchling that was “created” by the Sludge Belcher. Stage 2: It Just Wants to Play! Defeat the Sludge Belcher. Stage 3: Scary Ghosts and Creepy Fiends Defeat the Wandering Phantasm and Crypt Fiend guarding the Ziggaraut. Stage 4: Tormented Spirits Defeat Liz the Tormentor Stage 5: Ain’t Afraid of No Ghosts Proceed further towards Slaughter Square. Stage 6: Ambush! Defeat the plagued critters! Stage 7: No Shortage of Dead Things Defeat...

Patch 8.1 – Gnomeregan Pet Battle Dungeon

General Where does it start? In Dazar’alors “Hall of Beasts” Radek Fuselock will offer the quest https://ptr.wowhead.com/quest=54184 to players at level 120 and we’ll meet Manapoof again (for Alliance it’s Tizzy Gearjolt at Boralus’ “Ruff Waters” with her own version of Manapoof). As usual, on our first run, we have to reach that destination without Manapoof’s teleport. Horde players who don’t wanna die by entering Gnomeregan via Dun Morogh head to Grom’gol in Stranglethorn Vale and use the teleporter to Gnomeregan dungeon. You can’t leave through the dungeon entrance (you will get teleported back to Grom’gol this way), so you have to invite someone to a group and then leave it. You will get teleported out of the dungeon to the next graveyard and this right next to  Environeer Bert’s pet battle and your destination NPC Micro Zoox. Rewards: Not only is Micro Zoox the guy that takes you into the scenario, he’s also a vendor and will offer these items in exchange for the new Pristine Gizmo tokens rewarded by completing the challenge version of the Gnomeregan pet battle dungeon: https://ptr.wowhead.com/item=165839  (1x Pristine Gizmo) https://ptr.wowhead.com/item=165844  (1x Pristine Gizmo) https://ptr.wowhead.com/item=165854  (1x Pristine Gizmo) https://ptr.wowhead.com/item=165855  (2x Pristine Gizmo) https://ptr.wowhead.com/item=165857  (3x Pristine Gizmo) Before you can enter the challenge mode you have to finish the normal pet battle dungeon to complete the quest Gnomeregan’s New Guardians. When it’s done you will learn https://ptr.wowhead.com/spell=286079 and receive 1x  https://ptr.wowhead.com/item=122457. When you manage to complete the challenge version (healing & reviving pets between fights is inactive) for Pet Battle Challenge: Gnomeregan you achieve https://ptr.wowhead.com/achievement=13269 and receive the https://ptr.wowhead.com/item=165894 battle pet.   Dungeon Details Stage 1...

My 2.222 cents on Battle Pets and related stuff in Battle for Azeroth Beta (incl. bug reports)

General: Maximum battle pet level won’t be changed and we know the reasons, so I’m looking forward to see what they have in store to keep us pet battlers/collectors interested. Expectation (regarding to tweets by Jeremy Feasel) is that BfA will have a bigger number of initial obtainable battle pets than we’ve seen in August 2016 when Legion launched. Pet Charm will be renamed to Shiny Pet Charm and a new currency Polished Pet Charm will be introduced. You’ll need the new currency to buy “always useful items” like training stones, pet XP food etc. Even old vendors will see that currency change. BfA purchases need Polished Pet Charms, pre-BFA stuff will still be available for Shiny Pet Charms at the old vendors and you’ll get them from pre-BfA pet battle content. The Pocket Pet Portal will no longer be tied to Legion WQs only, there’s a second option to purchase it for the 1000 Polished Pet Charms (they don’t want to force players do go back and do Legion pet battle WQs to increase the number of collectible pets to 1500). World Quests: They have 24 pet battle WQs ready for launch, 4 of them in each of the 6 new zones on Zandalar and Kul Tiras. We’ve heard they’ll try to use the scaling mechanic of Crysa and Environeer Bert more often and they deliver! For 19 of these WQs (the ones including a tamer/trainer NPC) the enemy pets scale with the highest pet level in your team and only use the appropirate number of abilities. The other 5 WQs are tied to special pets, some of...
