Strange creatures have appeared in Wailing Caverns so if you’re feeling adventurous, are 110 and have at least one level 25 pet, head to Breanni’s shop in Dalaran to pick up A Call from the Caverns from Serr’ah or Lio in Patch 7.2. Once you have the quest, click Breanni’s companion Manapoof to get a quick port to the Caverns.

Speak to Muyani located in the left eye-socket of the skull entrance to pick up the next quest and queue for the solo scenario. The first time you battle your way through the catacombs, you’ll be able to heal your pets as often as you like. However, leaving the scenario without completing the dungeon will reset any progress you’ve made.

The first section contains three teams followed by a mini-boss and then escalate in difficulty until you finally confront the Budding Everliving Spore at the end of the dungeon.

RequirementPro Pet Group raise 15 pets to level 25.

Son of Skum Wailing Caverns pet reward

Once you’ve completed the initial dungeon, you can accept Muyani’s challenge to beat her best run i.e. clearing the scenario without healing or reviving your pets. Sound familiar?

Completing the challenge rewards an achievement, the Son of Skum and Sack of Damp Pet Supplies. This will be a weekly account-wide challenge which has a chance to contain the Cavern Moccasin, Everliving Spore or Young Venomfang.

If you’re interested in my strategies, the rematch strings for the above teams are available to Patreon supporters.
