Battle Pets in Battle for Azeroth

Battle for Azeroth brings a ton of new and updated models like a few new butterflies and a hi-res prairie dog but I’m especially excited about another cool addition. We’re actually getting a mummy pet! Okay, so I was hoping it’d be one of the new archaeology rewards but it turns out it will be a mythic dungeon achievement. BOO!

In BfA, we’ll have a new set of Pet Battle World Quests which means max-level content but the pets will scale down to your highest level pet on the team – like Crysa and Environeer Bert. There will also be a new type of pet currency so there’s no need to hoard your current collection any longer. A few other changes include new mechanics (on enemy pets or your own) and changes to abilities for certain pets (Bone Serpent, Crow/Gilnean Raven, Terroclaw Hatchling).

A number of companion pets (see reputation and embassy pets below) will have no stats meaning they will be unable to battle.
