So a lot has happened since my last update. The PTR has gotten a new update, so fingers crossed that once it downloads, my PTR account still works. If not, I don’t anticipate the PTR lasting *too* much longer, so whatever new information that comes out, I’ll just mine from other websites (or wait until the new patch hits). As for the legendary pet strats, if my PTR account no longer works, they will have to wait until the new patch hits so I can get those to you.
We’ve had a lot of information about the new pets that can be found in patch 6.2. Left Shark (from Katy Perry’s Super Bowl show) will make an appearance in a new Shipyard mission. So if you’re not interested in farming lunkers for Nat Pagle to get the Land Shark, this is an opportunity to have a shark pet without the hassle of collecting lunkers (and reputation, for that matter). We have also heard about the method we will need to use to earn the Graves pet from Heroes of the Storm. I have listed that information for you on the 6.2 PTR page.
In the past few days we’ve heard about 2 new pets that follow an Unborn Val’kyr-esque spawning technique – Sapphire Firefly and Crimsonwing Moth. Both of these pets can be found in Spires of Arak and Talador, respectively. Each pet, however, will only spawn 1 at a time in the entire zone. Needless to say, there are many players who are less than happy about this spawning condition-decision.
The most exciting news (in my opinion, anyway) is the addition of a Pet Battle themed weekend event that will boost the experience your pets earn by 200%! Not each event weekend will be a pet battle weekend, but it does give hope to those who have tons of pets to level and not much time to level them.
