Strange creatures have been discovered in the old winding catacombs of the Barrens 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 the quest from Serr’ah or Lio in Patch 7.2.
Currently, the Deviate Hatchling is the only pet from the Wailing Caverns but this new pet dungeon will add four new companions.
Essentially, you’ll be battling your way through the catacombs as part of a solo scenario. 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.
Speak to Muyani located in the left eye-socket of the skull entrance to pick up the next quest and queue for the scenario. Note: leaving the scenario will reset your progress.

Defeat the Deviate Smallclaw (Beast), Deviate Flapper (Flying) and Deviate Chomper (Aquatic) – all Common including random secondary pets
Stage 2: Son the Skum
Defeat Son of Skum (Epic Beast) and 2x random secondary pets (common quality)

Final Stage: Budding Everliving Spore

The quest rewards an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone.
Requirement – Pro Pet Group raise 15 pets to level 25.
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 and pet – the first boss encounter from the scenario.
Come back next week for a shot at several new pets from the Sack of Damp Pet Supplies. This will be a weekly account-wide challenge which may contain the Cavern Moccasin, Everliving Spore or Young Venomfang.
In terms, of difficulty, it wasn’t too hard so you should be able to defeat them using some of your favourite pets. Then again, tuning may prove otherwise. If you’d like to see my first run-through, check out the video.
