so far the newest updates to already announced pets are as follows:
- Dark Phoenix Hatchling (guild achievement required: Guild Cataclysm Dungeon Hero); 100g + X guild reputationjust to refresh your memory, a "guild group" under blizzard's terms is 4 guildies out of 5 people in a dungeon party. unfortunately, this means those who are in very intimate guilds but would like the dark phoenix hatchling will either need to recruit more to meet the 4/5 or join a larger guild.
- Armadillo Pup (guild achievement required: Critter Kill Squad); 40s + X guild reputation
another confirmed pet with (previously) very little information on was the Rustberg Seagull. WarcraftPets has discovered that upon the most recent beta patches, players will now need to be honored with their respective Tol Barad faction. the seagull will cost 60 Tol Barad Commendations.
and last but not least, the cataclysm engineering pets (personal world destroyer and de-weaponized mechanical companion) are learned at 475 from the engineering trainer. at this time these companions are still bind on pick up, meaning you must be an engineer to acquire/learn them. according to wowhead's cataclysm site, the mats for the two engineering pets are as follows:
- personal world destroyer: Cut Obsidian x2, Handful of Obsidian Bolts x2, Volatile Energy Convertermuch of this could change since cataclysm is still in beta. but just in case.... i think i'm going to start saving up mats to power level engineering again! x_x
- de-weaponized mechanical companion: Cut Obsidian x2, Handful of Obsidian Bolts x2, Volatile Energy Converter
