Shadowlands Battle Pets

Here are some of the new battle pets you can collect in Shadowlands including the Anima Wyrmling from the Epic Edition of the latest expansion. I’m excited to see so many new models and look forward to collecting them all. Many of the pets have multiple colour variations and while a lot of sources are still unknown, I’ve included some of my favourites.

In some exciting news, there is no new pet currency planned for Shadowlands. Whoo-hoo! Guess I should probably start doing some WQs again because I’m only completing the odd pet mission.

Covenant Pets

There will be at least one battle pet for each covenant but the pet(s) will only be usable by that covenant. It’s also been reported that one pet “eats up slime pools and gets you items” when brought out in Maldraxxus so it will be interesting to see which pet does what.

Bound Lightspawn – drop from Light Elementals

Burdened Soul – drop from Hidden Crypt

Crimson Dredwing Pup – drop from Dredbats

Decaying Oozewalker – Oily Invertebrate

  1. Nice summary! Your ‘three favourites’ may be the best-looking ones so far, too.

    I’m still playing catch-up on a lot of things; I hope this doesn’t get too involved up again.

    • Yep, will have to see how much effort these require. Curious about the new pet battles too.
