To unlock the Pet Menagerie, you will first need to defeat 3x rare pests wreaking havoc within your garrison walls. Doing this will open up the daily to battle a series of 15x round robin challengers.

Pets vs Pests

Gorefu (Aquatic)
Deep Bite, Mudslide, Feed

Carrotus Maximus
Carrotus Maximus (Elemental)
Ironbark, Aged Yolk, Leech Seed

Gnawface (Critter)
Sneaky Bite, Crouch, Call Darkness

All 3 pests can be soloed (as shown in this video).

Daily Challenge Post

The daily challenges reward 8x Pet Charms which is a new type of currency used to purchase upgrade stones, pet treats, bandages and pug costumes from the Menagerie NPC.  There’s also a new levelling-stone which adds 1 level to any pet. Alliance players may get a kick out of Lio the Lioness who is a tribute to Lio, a fellow pet battle enthusiast and blogger.

Once the menagerie is fully upgraded (after 150x Draenor battles), the daily converts to Mastering the Menagerie which rewards a Big Bag of Pet Supplies. This has a chance to contain one of 7x challengers you’ll be facing in the pit. I mean, who wouldn’t want their own Quintessence  or Eleanor battle pet?
