Faction-specific and Profession Pets In WoD

With WoD looming just around the corner and time flying by fast, I'm getting steadily more and more anxious about all of the pets that I'll need/want in the expansion. Currently there are over 100 new pets to collect. Meep.

I've already listed the garrison buildings that collectors will be interested in, but here are some other "to-do's".

This list is mainly to help myself organize and plan for collecting in WoD; hopefully it gives others some direction too. :)

Faction-specific pets:
Horde - Bone Wasp (Laughing Skull reputation)
Frostwolf Pup (Frostwolf reputation)

Alliance - Draenei Micro Defender (Council of Exarchs reputation)
Sky Fry (?) (Sha'tari Skyguard reputation)
Note: I'm unsure if the Sha'tari Skyguard is the same thing as the Sha'tari Defense, a new unlockable faction via the Trading Post building in your garrison. This building unlocks a horde faction (Laughing Skull) that sells a pet, so it would only make sense if there was an alliance one as well. However, the Sha'tari Skyguard is currently a faction that can be accessed by both horde and alliance (on live servers), so it's confusing that the pet is listed in the Pet Journal as something from the "Skyguard" instead of the "Defense".

Profession pets:
Archaeology - Ancient Nest Guardian, Frostwolf Ghostpup

Tailoring - Elekk Plushie

Engineering - Lifelike Mechanical Frostboar, Mechanical Scorpid, Mechanical Axebeak, Sky-Bo

Cooking - Lil' Leftovers

Herbalism - Nightshade Sproutling

Mining - Ore Eater

Blacksmithing - Soul of the Forge

Fishing - Land Shark, Sea Calf
I have the secondary professions (arch, cooking, fishing) all set and ready to go for WoD, but it looks like I'm going to need to level more toons and professions. Thankfully my toons with engineering and mining are already level capped and skill capped, so I'll just need to put some time into them in WoD. I'm still missing a tailor and blacksmith though, ugh. Perhaps I can convince my other half to dust off his alts to give me a helping hand? ;)

So much to do in the near future, ahhhh!


  1. Thanks for the write-up Quintessence :)

    As an alliance main, it looks like I'm going to need to level a hordie with a Trading Post in her garrison.

    From the way professions appear to work in WoD, I'm wondering if it may be possible to use the small garrison plots to make the profession pets. It would be very slow but better (for me) than levelling more alts.

    1. @Kintarah: You can use the plots to buy the recipes and make the pets but only if you have the profession. If you only have the plot and not the profession, you can't access the recipes/mats.

      I think it's possible to swap up your professions and start at skill level 1 for each one, though.
