Patch 6.2 Pet Battle Preview

Recommended Posts

12312-patch-62-pet-battle-preview.jpg

 

New pet battle content is coming to World of Warcraft in Patch 6.2, and Blizzard has posted an overview of the new pets, quests, and more. The complete post is included here, along with some additional details.

 

Blizzard's original post is as follows:

 

As we continue to explore new territory in Draenor, it should come as no surprise that new battle pets and new battle pet rewards will be found. Thus far, Draenor has contained a great deal of diversity for pet battlers, and Patch 6.2 will be no different. Let’s take a look at some of what’s in store for your collection.

 

Please note: Spoilers are ahead! If you want to discover the new battle pets and rewards for yourself, don’t read any further!

 

 

Tanaan Stop Action

 

First and foremost, Tanaan Jungle is where the action can be found on all fronts. You will find battle pets of all types dotting the landscape, four of which are new and just waiting to be caught for the first time:

  • Bloodbeak
  • Cerulean Moth
  • Violet Firefly
  • Fen Crab

Keep an eye out for the new quest “A Fel Puppy of My Own”, through which you can acquire the delightful new Fel Pup.

Just delightful.

 

But the jungle doesn’t only provide garden-variety battle pets. If you look carefully, you’ll find that there are 15 fel-corrupted legendary pets scattered throughout Tanaan. Your Pet Battle Master in your garrison will have some new information for you to get started. You can only defeat any of these legendaries once per day, and when you do, you’ll receive a container of Fel-Touched Pet Supplies, which will include:

  • Gold
  • Pet Charms
  • Pet Bandages

And has a small chance to include:

  • A Fel-Touched Battle-Training Stone (single use, grants +5 pet levels)
  • One of these rare pets:
    • Periwinkle Calf
    • Zangar Spore
    • Seaborne Spore
    • Nightmare Bell

You can ring my Nightmare Bell. Ring my Bell.

 

We’ve also got a new achievement for you when you defeat all 15 legendary opponents in Tanaan Jungle.

 

 

You’re Too Charming

 

Patch 6.2 is going to introduce a new vendor to your level 3 Garrison Menagerie. Tiffy Trapspring and Giada Goldleash have been attracted to your impressive stash of Pet Charms, and want to take them off your hands in exchange for the following pets:

  • Dusty Sporewing
  • Bloodthorn Hatchling
  • Glowing Sporebat
  • Lost Netherpup

And the following toys:

  • Magic Pet Mirror
  • Indestructible Bone
  • Spirit Wand

 

And the Hunt Continues

 

A number of new battle pets coming to World of Warcraft with patch 6.2 can be found all over the worlds. Back home in Azeroth, adventurers will cheer when they find the non-combative Nethaera’s Light glowing in Dalaran. Meanwhile, two new fishing pets are turning up at the Darkmoon Faire. One is called Blorp (also a non-combat pet), and the other is the wondrous Ghostshell Crab.

Their shells are made of ghosts.

 

Even more pets have found their way to the fields of battle on Draenor. Look carefully, and you may find:

  • Crimsonwing Moth -- A rare spawn in Talador with many spawn points, and only one ever appearing in the zone at a time.
  • Sapphire Firefly – A rare spawn in Spires of Arak who also has many spawn points and appears only once at a time.
  • Cinder Pup – Available from a new Garrison mission in patch 6.2.
  • Corrupted Nest Guardian – Dropped by Shadow Lord Iskar in the new Hellfire Citadel raid.

 

Get a first look at all of the above by testing Patch 6.2 with us on the PTR. Please note that availability to test some PTR content may be limited to certain time frames. Learn more about the upcoming Patch 6.2 and how to participate on the PTR in our 6.2 PTR Patch Notes.

 

 

If you're thinking about getting started collecting, take a look at our Top 10 Must Have WoW Battle Pets list to make sure you have the right tools to get out there and collect these new critters.

 

Are there other pet battle features you're looking forward to in 6.2?

      We're previewing Gargan mounts coming in the Shadowlands expansion.
      Shadowlands Alpha game files contain two types of Gargan mounts. The first version is without armor, whereas the second one has armor and looks like an upgrade of the first one. We have no clue where to get these mounts right now, as no mount sources have been added yet on Alpha. The Gargan mounts come in four tints: black, purple, red, and white.
      Black


      Purple


      Red


      White

      The unusual raid compositions are hardly surprising this late in the expansion cycle, and we're looking at the Fire Mage raid that burned Dresta'gath in 22 seconds in more detail.
      Method cleared Heroic Ny'alotha with 29 Mages and it took them 87 minutes to kill all bosses including N'Zoth. It's worth noting that they also brought a Demon Hunter for Chaos Brand that increases magic damage taken by 5%. The raid was lead by Scripe.
      Logs
      The raid group was super quick to blast through Ny'alotha. They managed to defeat 5 bosses in under a minute. The longest fight was N'Zoth and it took them a little over 6 minutes to kill him. After that, they decided to kill Wrathion again on Normal difficulty. Full logs are available here.

      Next, we're looking at all boss encounters in more detail, with VOD always starting at the beginning of the fights.

      Wrathion Kill
      Wrathion died in just 31 seconds, but the raid experienced lags during the encounter, possibly because of all the Pyroblasts hitting the boss.
      Wrathion Logs

      Maut Kill
      It took the group 37 seconds to burn down Maut with continued lags throughout the encounter.

      Prophet Skitra Kill
      The lags have finally stopped with Prophet Skitra and the boss was defeated in 1 minute and 6 seconds.

      Dark Inquisitor Xanesh Kill
      Xanesh took almost two minutes.

      Vexiona Kill
      The raid killed Vexiona in under 1 minute.

      The Hivemind Kill
      Tek'ris and Ka'zir were defeated in 42 seconds.

      Ra-den Kill
      Ra-den was defeated in 1 minute and 26 seconds.
      Ra-den Logs
      Shad'har Kill
      Shad'har caused some health drops, as the swirlies on the ground that you need to look out for were not visible through all the Pyroblasts. The boss was killed in 1 minute and 32 seconds.
      Shad'har Logs
      Dresta'gath
      The raid zerged Dresta'gath in under 22 seconds. This is the video we posted yesterday.
      Dresta'gath Logs

      Il'gynoth Kill
      With two dead raid members, Il'gynoth died in 2 minutes and 47 seconds.
      Il'gynoth Logs

      Carapace of N'Zoth Kill
      Next, they went to deal with Carapace of N'Zoth, and the boss took 3 minutes and 35 seconds with all its phases.
      Carapace Logs

      N'Zoth Kill
      The strategy for N'Zoth was to have the Demon Hunter and 9 other Mages (Groups 1&2) go in first while the remaining 20 Mages nuked the Psychus. Other groups went in without a tank. The final boss took 6 minutes and 8 seconds.
      N'Zoth Logs
      Wrathion (Normal) Kill
      Finally, the group switched to Normal difficulty and defeated Wrathion again, but with style, as this time, there were no lags. Oddly enough, Normal Wrathion lasted 3 seconds longer than the Heroic version.

      WoWToken.info, a site used for tracking WoW Token prices across all regions since April 2015, today announced they are shutting down.
      Placeholder for tweet 1265771780553216000 The closure is completely voluntary, as traffic and revenue went significantly down while prices remained quite stable. The creator of WoWToken.info recommends players using different sites that serve the same purpose, but are still working, like WoWTokenPrices.com.
      Placeholder for tweet 1266031823236333569 Thanks to everyone who participated in the project! I've used the site since forever.

      DesMephisto is back (or, more accurately, he never left, as he constantly strives to improve his leveling speeds), and he's gotten his speed record for 10-50 Shadowlands leveling significantly down from his last attempt! 3 hours and 56 minutes (or 3 h 37 min, if you remove the "screwing around" parts) is all it took to get to the equivalent of today's level 120, using Chromie time in Warlords of Draenor, beating the previous best we reported by over an hour and a half.

      Now, it's important to mention that Blizzard have stated in interviews that the current XP rates and leveling speeds on Alpha aren't final and are very rough at the moment, but it's till great to see players going for these speed records nonetheless.
      And here's the last minute or so of the leveling process, and you can check out the whole thing below as well:


      You can also check out our recent interview with the man himself, where he goes into all the many recent achievements he's had, from the 46 max level warriors, to the speed leveling, Autism charity, Guinness World Record and more.

      Method ran Ny'alotha on Heroic difficulty with a raid comprised of 29 Mages and one Demon Hunter, and while they downed all the bosses including N'Zoth, the clear highlight is Dresta'gath that has been defeated in just 22 seconds.
      You can watch the Pyroblast shower and Dresta'gath's decreasing health bar in the following video:
