There are more than 100 new battle 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 them all. Many have multiple colour variations and while a lot of sources are still unknown, I’ve included some of my favourite models throughout this post.
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. 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.
In the weeks before Shadowlands, the limited-time Scourge Invasion will be happening in Northrend. The Putrid Geist will come from the event and will cost 20 Argent Commendations to purchase.
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.
