6.2 PTR Info

Patch 6.2 will be bringing a lot of new battle pet-related content and a lot of it is pretty exciting and interesting!

New Wild Battle Pets:

Bloodbeak – Tanaan Jungle
Cerulean Moth – Tanaan Jungle
Crimsonwing Moth* – Talador
Fen Crab – Tanaan Jungle
Sapphire Firefly* – Spires of Arak
Violet Firefly – Tanaan Jungle

*These pets follow a kind of Unborn Val’kyr-esque spawning style in that only one of these pets will spawn at a time in each zone. This is going to make things interesting on PvP realms where people will be fighting over capturing these pets.

New Vendor Pets:

Bloodthorn Hatchling – Bought from Giada Goldleash (H) / Tiffy Trapspring (A) for 50 Pet Charms
Blorp** – Bought from Galissa Sundew for 50 Darkmoon Daggermaw
Crusher – Bought from Trader Araanda (A) / Trader Darakk (H) for 1,000 gold
Dusty Sporewing – Bought from Giada Goldleash (H) / Tiffy Trapspring (A) for 50 Pet Charms
Ghostshell Crab*** – Bought from Galissa Sundew for 100 Darkmoon Daggermaw
Glowing Sporebat – Bought from Giada Goldleash (H) / Tiffy Trapspring (A) for 100 Pet Charms
Lost Netherpup – Bought from Giada Goldleash (H) / Tiffy Trapspring (A) for 200 Pet Charms

**When you buy this pet, you need to purchase Blorp’s Bubble, which will teach you Blorp. In addition, Blorp is a vanity pet, not a battle pet.
***When you buy this pet, you need to purchase the Translucent Shell, which will teach you Ghostshell Crab.

Other New Battle Pets:

6.2 Pet Toys:

  • Magic Pet Mirror – Using this toy makes your character take on the appearance of whatever battle pet you use it on. (Note: You can only use this toy on pets that can battle, so no vanity pets allowed.) This toy is bought from Giada Goldleash (H) / Tiffy Trapspring (A) for 500 Pet Charms
  • Spirit Wand – Using this toy makes your pet take on a spectral look (like Ghastly Kid or Frostwolf Ghostpup). This toy is bought from Giada Goldleash (H) / Tiffy Trapspring (A) for 100 Pet Charms
  • The Perfect Blossom – Using this toy gives you Fel Petals that you can use to give your battle pets that fel touch. This “toy” is a treasure in Tanaan Jungle.

Battle Pet Rewards:

Fel-Touched Pet Supplies – Awarded by defeating the new legendary pets that are located around Tanaan Jungle. Each bag has a chance to award Pet Charms, gold, pet bandages, the Nightmare Bell pet, the Periwinkle Calf pet, the Seaborn Spore pet, the Zangar Spore pet, or a Fel-Touched Battle-Training Stone.

Fel-Touched Battle-Training Stone – Adds 5 levels to any battle pet.

New Battle Pet Achievements:

Tiny Terrors in Tanaan – This achievement requires you to defeat the following pets:

Skrillix
Tainted Maulclaw
Vile Blood of Draenor

New Pet Battle Event:

Blizzard will be introducing new weekend events and one of them is a Pet Battle weekend! During these weekend events, all of your battle pets will earn an extra 200% experience! This will be a very good (and fast!) way to level up your battle pets. I do not know if this experience boost will stack with other items that increase battle pet experience (Safari Hat, Lesser Pet Treat, etc.), but I would assume that it does. If that’s true, you can potentially earn up to +295% battle pet experience during this weekend! (As long as the Darkmoon Faire is in town.)

During this weekend event, you can also have a chance at earning yet another Ultimate Battle-Training Stone! To earn this pet, you will need to complete The Very Best, where you have to win 5 PvP pet battles with teams of level 25 pets.
