There are over 100 new pets to collect including the Anima Wyrmling from the Epic Edition of Shadowlands. I’m excited to see so many new models and look forward to collecting all the Shadowlands battle pets.
In some exciting news, there will be no new pet currency this expansion. Whoo-hoo! Guess I should probably start doing some WQs again because I’m only completing the odd pet mission. To read up on the changes to pet mechanics, new abilities and nerfs, check out the article. You will need 3,000 Polished Pet Charms to purchase the Shadowlands 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.
Once you’ve joined your chosen Covenant, you’ll be able to begin undertaking Adventures from the dedicated table within your Sanctum. Through the interface, you’ll be able to view available Adventures, the associated rewards, the cost to undertake them, the state of your units, and how challenging the enemies are within that Adventure. You’ll want to choose a solid mix from your Adventurers, Soulbinds, and troops to create a party of up to 5 units to deal with the various threats.
