A new pet battle tournament is available on the Timeless Isle, more details coming soon!The pet battle tournie sounds pretty interesting, but I'm starting to have flashbacks of the Argent Tournie. Very grindy. I wonder if it will be similar to the Argent Tournament in that it's faction specific. We'll see!
Players are now able to trade in any 3 of the same family specific Flawless Battle-Stones for a single Marked Flawless Battle-Stone.
Viewable pet battles will now display working health bars.
Battle Pet levels are now only shown on the map if you are tracking Battle Pets.
Aquatic type's passive effect now reduces damage from damage-over-time effects by 50%, up from 25%.
Critter type's passive effect now makes critters immune to roots, stuns, and sleep effects.
Dragonkin type's passive effect now activates after an attack brings a target's to below 50% health, up from 25%.
Elemental type's passive effect now only affects negative direct effects of weather. (E.g. Sandstorm's accuracy reduction won't be applied, but the damage reduction will.)
Magic type's passive effect now caps damage taken at 35% of maximum health, up from 40%.
I CAN'T WAIT to trade in family-specific stones for generic ones. I'll finally clear up some bagspace and upgrade those last few pets. :D
There were other changes to pet abilities as well, and changes to pet ability positions for the Darkmoon Zeppelin and Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling. You can view all the changes here.
