8.1.5 PTR: New Pets From Raiding With Leashes VI, Children's Week, DMF


DMF balloon companions cannot battle and are not cageable.

We're kicking off 2019 with a new PTR cycle. Patch 8.1.5 PTR is up and new Pet Battle content was added.

At least 20 new pets so far:
- 11 dropped pets and 1 meta-achievement reward
  • Children's Week updates
- 4 new pets
  • Darkmoon Faire additions
- 3 new pets
  • Last but not least, 1 pet from "A Quest"


Some of my personal favorites/highlights of the RWL6 set.

Full list of 8.1.5 datamined pets can be found here.

The Pet Journal doesn't list specific bosses for the RWLVI pets yet. It's interesting that there are only 3 MoP raids listed for the achievement too. The last raids, Throne of Thunder and Siege of Ogrimmar are missing from this set of RWL pets. Will these 2 raids get their own RWL treatment? Or will they simply not be included? There are a number of pets that already drop from these raids, but we'll have to wait and see if they'll be grandfathered into RWL or if they'll stay as separate, standalone drops. Whatever Blizzard decides it may set precedence for future similar situations where pets are released as drops from raid bosses ahead of that particular raid's corresponding RWL achievement.

List of existing MoP-raid dropped pets (Throne of Thunder & Siege of Orgimmar):


The Brawler's Guild will also be making its return. No new pets from there so far, but the 2 previously released pets (Clock'em and Tylarr Gronnden) will be available again. Same requirements as before.

That's it for now. They only announced the return of the Brawler's Guild and Children's Week updates during last year's BlizzCon preview of 8.1.5, but it's possible more Pet Battle content (even more than RWL6?!) could be added in this upcoming patch. We'll have to wait and see.

Island Expedition Pet Trading

Here is a list of duplicate Island Expedition pets that I'd be willing to exchange for other Island Expedition pets. I could just sell these on the AH, but I have little to no patience for the AH.

I'd prefer to trade 1 for 1, but if you feel your offer is worth significantly more than just one of the duplicate pets I have, let me know and maybe we can work out a deal.

You can contact me on Twitter or send me an in-game message/mail (Quintessence on US-Proudmoore, Alliance).

Last updated January 12, 2019

Pets I have available to trade:
  • Giggling Flame x2
  • Playful Frostkin x2
  • Mischievous Zephyr x3
  • Captain Nibs x2
  • Snapper x4
  • Sandshell Chitterer x3
  • Thistlebrush Bud x2
  • Sunscale Hatchling
  • Inky
  • Kunchong Hatchling
  • Bloodstone Tunneler
  • Snort
  • Laughing Stonekin

Save the Dates - Battle of Dazar'alor Raid Pets

There are 4 new battle pets from the Battle of Dazar'alor raid:
- January 22 Normal and Heroic
- February 12 LFR wing 2
- January 29 Mythic
- January 22 Normal and Heroic
- February 12 LFR wing 2

It's unclear if the non-mythic pets will drop on all difficulties, and if the Enchanted Tiki Mask enchanting recipe will drop on all difficulties. We'll have to wait and see.
