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?

      Similar to the Blood of Sargeras vendor in Dalaran, a new vendor has been added to the Vindicaar in Patch 7.3.2. He offers various items in exchange for Primal Sargerite.
      Maras can be found aboard the Vindicaar on Argus. For 1 Primal Sargerite, you can get one of the following:
      10x Astral Glory 10x Empyrium 10x Fiendish Leather 10x Lightweave Cloth Uncut Argus epic gems cost 10 Primal Sargerite each.
      Argulite Chemirine Florid Malachite Hesselian Labradorite Lightsphene Screenshots

      Patch 7.3 added new crafting materials and recipes. The issue that Blizzard somehow forgot to solve was Primal Sargerite. You can't really do anything with it. It's not needed to craft gems and only a handful of recipes require it. 10 Primal Sargerite for a single Hesselian, Florid Malachite or Labradorite is a bit off, especially because they are the least prominent gems and can't be cut into epic gems. Make some gold while you still can and don't forget to check out our post about Jewelcrafting and epic gems.

      New sound files have been added in Patch 7.3.2 and they are full of heavy spoilers revolving around Illidan and the fate of Azeroth after Argus the Unmaker has been defeated.
      Our friends over at MMO-Champion have uploaded new voicovers for Aggramar, Aman'thul, Eonar the Life-Binder, Illidan, Khadgar, Malfurion and Tyrande that contain major spoilers, proceed with caution!
      From the recently added Dungeon Journal entry of Argus, we learn that the Pantheon will be aiding us in the final battle against Argus. Eonar provides Gift of the Lifebinder, allowing players to resurrect during the encounter. Other perks in the encounter are  Gift of the Sea or Gift of the Sky.
      Aman'thul VO
      Aggramar VO
      Eonar VO
      Illidan VO
      Illidan asks you to put some final matters to rest and deliver Alor'idal Crystal on his behalf. It holds messages for his brother Malfurion, Tyrande and you. After that you're supposed to place it atop Mount Hyjal upon the shores of the Well of Eternity. If you don't know what happens to Illidan after Argus is defeated, you can find more information here. Illidan, Malfurion and Tyrande received young models in Patch 7.3.2 that may be part of a flashback.
      Malfurion VO
      Tyrande VO
      Khadgar VO
      Now comes the real deal. Khadgar's new sound files reveal what's going on with Azeroth.
      "The Legion is defeated, its master imprisoned, but in his final spiteful act, Sargeras may have doomed us all. Our world is wounded champion. Its life essence seeps out into the sands just as Magni foresaw. This mere drop of Argus' blood surges with incredible power, the might of a titan. If the blood of Azeroth also proves to be a source of such strength, those who seek to rule this world will stop at nothing to possess it. The days ahead may be dark indeed. For now, go to Silithus. Gaze upon the wound in the world with your own eyes. We will find a way to save Azeroth, I know it."
      Remember Il'gynoth's quote "The king of diamonds has been made a pawn?" It all started with the Whispers of a Frightened World scenario.  From the transcript it is obvious that the final titan is wounded. There's a new map with a giant wound (hole) in Silithus. 
      Silithus Wound
      Below is a map of the Silithus Wound scenario (Phase 1).

      A set of titan-themed Antorus trinkets seems to have some pretty spectacular endboss-only secondary procs!
      With 7.3.2 on the PTR there's been a lot of new discoveries, and the trinkets coming with Antorus: The Burning Throne are certainly among the most interesting. They are all titan themed and all have a standard proc and then an additional unique proc. While it's unclear when exactly this "Empowered by the Pantheon" effect occurs, it seems likely it's connected to a particular part of the Argus the Unmaker encounter (as per the Encounter Journal). Since these secondary procs are pretty insane stat wise (at least for now, you never know with PTR numbers) it seems very likely they will only be present during a part of the Argus fight, perhaps acting as a soft nerf over time for guilds, but they could also be present in the rest of the raid, we'll just have to wait and find out.
      But enough fluff, let's take a look at the actual items!
       Aggramar's Conviction
         Aman'Thul's Wisdom
          Eonar's Compassion
        Golganneth's Vitality
        Khaz'goroth's Courage
        Norgannon's Prowess
      So, what do you think about these pretty crazy trinkets and their potential use as tools to make the endboss easier?

      Public Test Realms have been updated with Patch 7.3.2. The patch contains adjustments in preparation for the release of Antorus the Burning Throne raid.
      The development notes are really short. There's no new content or features and Blizzard doesn't plan to post further development notes for future builds.
      It's needless to say that there's a lot going on! Primal Sargerite can now be exchanged for various goods, Argus the Unmaker now has a Dungeon Journal entry, Legendary items can be upgraded to 1,000.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve updated the 7.3 PTR with a new patch, labeled as 7.3.2. This patch is very minor, focused around updating a few of our backend systems as well as making some final adjustments in preparation for the release of the Antorus raid zone. There’s no new content or features in this update, and any other changes will be extremely light (in most cases limited to simply correcting tooltips to reflect hotfixes that are already live).

      As such, we’re not planning to post regular development notes with future builds, but will post updates regarding raid testing as that process continues. Thanks, and happy testing!

      Awoken Titan Essence allows upgrading of Legendary items to item level 1,000 when Antorus opens.
      In July, we spotted Legendary items of item level 1,000. Players have been reporting the bug on live realms, but in Patch 7.3.2 a new item appeared that can upgrade Legendary items to Legion's max cap - ilvl 1,000.
      The upgrade process is similar to how Legendaries have been upgraded throughout Legion (in Patch 7.2.5 with Stabilized Titan Essence, or Distilled Titan Essence in Patch 7.1.5).
      In Patch 7.3.2, you'll need to collect 50 essences to receive Awoken Titan Essence and upgrade a single Legendary item to item level 1,000. Essences will likely drop in Antorus, the weekly Order Hall cache, emissary chests or Mythic Keystone caches. Crafted items should be of item level 1,000 by default when Antorus the Burning Throne opens.
