It’s time to marshal your menagerie and put your best battle pets forward in the volcanic labyrinth of Blackrock Depths, a new Pet Battle Dungeon with Normal and Challenge difficulties available with the release of Visions of N’Zoth.

At long last, we’ve discovered the secret headquarters of the sinister group that has been conducting vile experiments on critters across Azeroth. Soon, Pet Battle Dungeon challengers will be able to embark on the final fight to stop their machinations and reveal the truth behind this shadowy organization.

To get started on your journey, you’ll need to have completed the four previous Pet Battle Dungeon quests: “Wailing Critters,” “The Deadmines Strike Back,” “Gnomeregan’s New Guardians,” and “Tiny Terrors of Stratholme.” Once all four quest lines have been completed at Normal or Challenge difficulty, you’ll be able to accept a new quest from Tizzy Gearjolt in Boralus or Radek Fuselock in Dazar’alor and begin your Blackrock Depths pet battle journey.

TIP: If you have not finished all of the Pet Battle Dungeons, or if this is your first foray into Pet Battle Dungeons, you might find these strategy guides helpful to get you ready for the newest Pet Battle Dungeon.

Wailing Critters | The Deadmines | Gnomeregan | Stratholme.

Pets from just about every family will stand against you in Blackrock Depths, so you’ll need to come prepared with a variety of your own to succeed. You’ll be able to heal and revive your pets between each of the 9 stages in Normal difficulty, but not in Challenge difficulty.

Defeating the dungeon on Normal difficulty will earn players an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone Ultimate Battle-Training Stone and unlock Challenge difficulty. You’ll also be able to avail yourself of Manapoof’s aid to teleport directly to Blackrock Depths’ dungeon entrance as a part of the quest reward.

Those who prove themselves to be the very best on Challenge difficulty will earn the achievementPet Battle Challenge: Blackrock Depths Pet Battle Challenge: Blackrock Depths along with Shadowy Disguise Shadowy Disguise, a toy that disguises you as a shadowy figure for 15 seconds.

Completing Challenge difficulty will count toward a weekly quest that rewards Shadowy Gem Shadowy Gems, an account-bound currency that you redeem for an Unopened Blackrock Supply Crate Unopened Blackrock Supply Crate filled with pet supplies, or for three new pets—Wailing Lasher Wailing Lasher, Experiment 13 Experiment 13, and Tinyclaw Tinyclaw. Speak with Burt Macklyn at the entrance of the dungeon to add one of these powerful fiends to your ranks.

Completing all five Pet Battle Dungeons (Wailing Caverns, The Deadmines, Gnomeregan, Stratholme, and Blackrock Depths) on Challenge difficulty will reward you with The Shadows Revealed The Shadows Revealed achievement and the Mayhem Mind Melder Mayhem Mind Melder toy which lets you take control of your companion pet for 30 seconds.

Whether you’re new to pet battle dungeons or a companion-combat veteran, you’ll want to get in on the ongoing story as it unfolds. Who are the shadowy figures that keep appearing in each pet battle dungeon? What exactly have they been building with all of the parts they’ve collected from Pet Battle Dungeons over the years?

Discover what awaits your critter pals next in Blackrock Depths!

"People sure seem to spend a lot of time in BRD in Classic, let's give them something to go that same place in retail" - Design team, probably.

I'm all for more content, but this seems like a really strange time to plug this in.

I really don't care for the pet battle system and pretty much ignore the feature all together.  Mostly just collect pets and move onto different areas of PvE farming for select mounts/xmog.

      Here comes the 4th installment of Sturmbart's mapping of Azeroth! After Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms and Northrend, we head to Pandaria and the parted mists, as the topographic map with estimated population values based on real-world continent sizes gives us a lot of info. The watermark is present once again, after some unfortunate cases of the maps being taken and resold by some shady people.

      And, speaking of Pandaria, here's a recent meme for ya, because why not:

      Redditor BurnInOblivion noticed that you can get from Hated to Exalted with the Sons of Hodir just by completing the quest chain during Wrath Timewalking.
      Wrath Timewalking is here until July 7 and the event comes with the Sign of the Scourge buff that increases Wrath of the Lich King reputation gains from combat and quests by 50%.
      BurnInOblivion pointed out that finishing Mending Fences and A Spark of Hope was enough for him to reach Exalted, as each quest gives 28,600 reputation with the faction, but later added that he achieved the +160% bonus reputation on a Human with Diplomacy which adds another 10%.
      Nevertheless, a total of 84,000 reputation is required to reach Exalted from Hated and quests leading up to that point should still give you ample reputation (85,800) to reach Exalted.
      Thanks to this method, you can completely skip grinding Relic of Ulduar for additional reputation.
      You can start the Sons of Hodir intro quest by going to K3 in Storm Peaks and talking to Gretchen Fizzlespark (They Took Our Men!).
      You can buy Reins of the Ice Mammoth (Alliance) / Reins of the Ice Mammoth (Horde) for 1,000 Gold at Revered and Reins of the Grand Ice Mammoth (Alliance) / Reins of the Grand Ice Mammot (Horde) for 10,000 Gold at Exalted with the Sons of Hodir. Reputation discounts apply.

      Very little is known about the Path of Ascension coming in Shadowlands, so we're looking at what we found in the game files.
      The Bastion Arena that we though was initially designed for PvP is known in the game files as "9.0 Bastion Arena - Path of Ascension". Another field calls it "The Robodrone".
      The loading screen gives us a very a rough idea about the new zone's appearance, but what is the Scenario really about?

      Through datamining we found multiple achievements tied to the Path of Ascension progression that include 39 encounter and defeating each boss unlocks more, so it's safe to assume that this could be the Brawler's Guild of Shadowlands.
      The Path Towards Ascension 1 - Defeat a boss in the Path of Ascension. Reward: Unlock more challenges in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 3  - Defeat three bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 5 - Defeat three bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 7 - Defeat seven bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 12 - Defeat 12 bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 16 - Defeat 16 bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 20 - Defeat 20 bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 24 - Defeat 24 bosses in the Path of Ascension. The Path Towards Ascension 39 - Defeat 39 bosses in the Path of Ascension. Some spells reveal additional unlockable opponents, hinting at a Brawler's Guild-style system.
      Trial: Mad Mortimer - Unlocks Mad Mortimer as an opponent in the Path of Ascension. Trial: Athanos - Unlocks Athanos as an opponent in the Path of Ascension. Furthermore, datamining revealed more about Path of Ascension training and your Soulbind will help you during the encounters.
      It seems there will be some sort of Training Dummy implemented to practice for the Path of Ascension and your Soulbind will assist you during the encounter.
      Soul Mirror - Used to capture a memory of a target for training purposes in the Path of Ascension. Extracting Memory - Channel on a Path of Ascension capture target, containing a memory of them within the Soul Mirror to be trained against. [DNT] Start Encounter - Are you ready to face the Path of Ascension with your current selections? Charms
      Buffs that empower your Soulbind in different ways. Charms are crafted through Ascended Crafting. Some of the buffs are still incomplete.
      Charm of Fortitude - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, increasing their Health by 10% for their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Alacrity - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, increasing their Movement Speed by 10% for their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Persistence - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, causing them to regenerate 1% health every 5 seconds during their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Buff 4 - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, causing them to Buff 4 during their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Buff 5 - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, causing Buff 5 during their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Buff 6 - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, causing Buff 6 during their next Path of Ascension encounter. Charm of Buff 7 - Pin this charm on your Soulbind, causing Buff 7 during their next Path of Ascension encounter. Path of Ascension is a Scenario which means you can just queue up for it and there is no need to wait for your turn!

      The new Alliance and Horde Intro Experience of Shadowlands is suppose to introduce completely new players to the game and we learned that Area looting is a feature learned at level 8.
      Back in May, we posted about the option to disable AoE Loot in the game, now why would you want that? It turns out this feature is intended for new players that go through Exile's Reach and unlock Area looting at level 8.
      For an odd reason, AoE looting was available on Alpha even before level 8 as depicted in the image below and we did not have to loot all corpses separately.

      Upon reaching level 8, you unlock Area Looting which allows you to loot all nearby corpses.

      Thanks to u/Grayvves for the tip.
