Pet-battles

đź”’ Blizzard’s BlizzCon 2017 reveal should be a pet battle app The idea is not something new — an app for our phones that lets us battle with our WoW pets. Since pet battles were introduced with Cataclysm there has been constant talk of an app for them. Even Blizzard’s devs have said it’s a cool idea; but sadly throughout the years nothing has materialized. We’ve barely had...

Do you obsessively need to finish collections? I just downloaded Collection Shop and I’m already down 20k gold. I bought every transmog piece I could that was under 1k gold, which turned out to be quite a few old greens I never bothered with, and while I’m glad that I got those pieces, I also know full well that I’ll never use...




Patch 7.2: First look at pet battle dungeons Way back at BlizzCon, during the World of Warcraft Q&A hosted by Wowhead’s Panser, a question about the future of pet battles was asked. The answer was a pithy yet cryptic “pet battle dungeons.” When the patch 7.2 PTR hit, the blanks were filled in quite suddenly, as the first pet battle dungeon is available...

Breakfast Topic: The next transmogrification What could Blizzard add to World of Warcraft that could be a feature which you could utterly sink into, or utterly disregard? Something that could add value to the game for some players, while not being compulsory at all? Something like Pet Battles or transmogrification in terms of impact, something with a lot of depth...

Get tons of extra battle pet XP this bonus weekend As the calendar shows, this weekend in World of Warcraft is the battle pet bonus event. Every six weeks there’s triple pet XP everywhere you do battle, plus a quest to do some PVP battles. But every few months, the stars align with the Menagerie rotation in a very special event. On this magic day, which...

No epic battle pets in Legion A recent Legion build added new battle stones that would increase the maximum rarity of pets from rare to epic — and because epic pets would be a lot more powerful than rare pets, it would mean everyone would have to get them in order to do Legion pet battles. Though that would offer pet...




Epic quality battle pets a possibility in Legion The latest alpha build for Legion has brought with it a few new pet developments. In addition to new pets, some toys, and a new tamer with a whole team of corgis datamined by Wowhead, there’s an important addition for alpha testers. A special vendor has joined the alpha community with a new battle stone, unlimited leveling...

Legion Battle Pets: Vale Flitter and Terror Larva One thing I’ve noticed while leveling through Legion is that there are a lot of Battle Pets out there available through questing, by killing rares, or simply by stumbling into the right place at the right time. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t any pets to be found out in the wild — the Broken...



Upcoming Legion pet battle changes to Undead, Graves, and more Some substantial pet battle changes are on the way in the upcoming Legion expansion. Undead pets have long had one of the strongest family abilities in the game. Coming back for one round after death to wreak havoc was something lots of tamers counted on in their strategies. The dev team is working on a...

Legion Battle Pets: Nursery Spider The Legion alpha is full of plenty of new quests, zones, class halls and more — including a wide variety of new Battle Pets to fight, capture, purchase and discover. Dalaran’s return means we also get the return of the pet shop, a few familiar faces, and some new pets too. The Nursery Spider is...

Dust Bunny in Legion’s Dalaran The Warcraft team usually adds small hints and cute little touches to find here and there throughout the world. As a pet battler, I get to see many of these, but the mystery of the new Dust Bunny is one I haven’t seen just yet. The pet journal reported its location as Dalaran, but the...

Breakfast Topic: What’s the next pet battle system? One of the things I love most in World of Warcraft is the pet battle system… mostly because I’ve never once participated in it. We hear a lot of talk about optional vs optimal gameplay, but the fact remains, that of all the time I’ve been told something would be optional in WoW, from LFR...

Breakfast Topic: Are you still playing with Pet Battles? This week marks the Pet Battle Bonus Event, which I don’t usually pay too much attention to, except that the stars aligned and brought Squirt to my garrison. Battling Squirt nets you a lot of XP for your fuzzy little pals, so I figured hey, why not see how many pets I could get to...

Video guide to Legion’s new battle pet models Though World of Warcraft has received some graphical overhauls over the year, parts of the original game remain extremely polygon-y — particularly classic-era battle pets. However that’s set to change in Legion (at least for some pets), making your classic companions a lot more cuddly. To see just how our furry (and not-furry) friends will look in the next...

Legion Beta: An early look at datamined battle pets The datamining wizards at Wowhead are at it again, and this time they’ve unearthed some brand new battle pets that may turn up in the next World of Warcraft expansion, Legion. It’s a bit surprising to see progress on pets this early in the development cycle, but keep in mind that datamined information definitely isn’t set in...

Pet battles in Legion At this point, we know virtually nothing concrete about the future of pet battling when the next World of Warcraft expansion, Legion, goes live. This isn’t concerning at this point, since pets tend to be among the last things to be added in most development cycles we’ve seen since their inception. We can assume a...
