Battle For Azeroth Beta: Keeping Track

Pet Journal was heavily updated in the latest Beta patch. So much new information! But, as always, things could change, and everything datamined/discovered might not be the final result.

In addition to Pet Journal updates, there were other things, but keep an eye on WarcraftPets' front page for more information on that stuff (I'll have something up in the next few days).

Instead, I wanted to focus on breaking down what pets are coming in BFA. The full list of upcoming expansion pets and their sources can be found on WarcraftPets.

Here's a more in-depth look at what we'll be collecting in the near future:

  • Current BFA battle pet total: 88 120 (as of May 31) 122 (as of June 7)
  • Vendor: 32
  • Drop: 40
  • Wild and Pet Battle: 28
  • Achievement: 8
  • Quest: 5
  • Profession: 7
  • Unknown: 2

FAMILIES (updated June 7)
  • Aquatic: 30
  • Beast: 24
  • Critter: 8
  • Dragonkin: 1
  • Elemental: 12
  • Flying: 19
  • Humanoid: 3
  • Magic: 9
  • Mechanical: 8
  • Undead: 8
Note: There might be a handful of pets listed under the incorrect family type. Waiting on a future Beta patch to check for updates.

The second list might be especially important for collectors. There are significant Pet Charm changes coming, and those that want to dump a large quantity of them into battlestones (like myself) might need/want some direction on what to buy. Hopefully this list helps a little in that department.

I'll try to keep this list updated, but aaahhh so many pets! XD


  1. Just wondering if you have a break down of which pets (other than wild) come in a quality less than rare? Trying to work out how to spend my pet charms.

    1. @Anonymous: At the moment, no. I don't have the ability to determine base quality of non-wild pets without collecting them first.

      I'm pretty sure achievement pets are always rare quality. The others aren't as predictable and can come in different qualities.
