Gnomeregan Pet Dungeon - Pets Used For Each Encounter

I'm pretty much done collecting the Gnomeregan Pet Dungeon pets, but I wanted to leave this here for future reference in case I decide to go back.

Pets I use for Gnomeregan Pet Dungeon:
  1. First encounter - Felclaw Marsuul, Fire Beetle, Crispin
  2. Ice elemental encounter - Lead with Shimmershell Snail
  3. Poison elemental encounter - Lead with Abyssal Eel
  4. Fire elemental encounter - Lead with Rusty Snail
  5. Console encounter - Scooter the Snail (Shell Shield), Silkbead Snail (Acidic Goo), Lost Platysaur
  6. Rat encounter - Lead with Barrier Hermit (P/S)
  7. Cockroach encounter - Lead with Saurolisk Hatchling
  8. Undead Rat “boss” - Elusive Skimmer, Infected Squirrel, Whiskers the Rat
  9. Mechanical wolf encounter - Lead with Enchanted Cauldron
  10. Mechanostrider encounter - Lead with Gooey Sha-ling
  11. Mehcanical tiger encounter - Lead with Orphaned Felbat
  12. Last boss - Servant of Demidos, Tinytron, Spawn of G’nathus (or any pet with Lightning Shield, Fire Shield, or Heat Up)

For enemy backline pets, follow a general rule of thumb:
  • Mechanical with the “turret” attack - use a pet with a ‘thorns-type’ ability (Lightning Shield, Heat Up, etc.), preferably not an Elemental pet
  • All other mechanical pets - use any pet with elemental attacks
  • Undead - use Aquatics with critter attacks (or Dust Bunny (P/S))
  • Critter - use any hard hitting Beast attacks do the trick (Fel Piglet and Thaumaturgical Piglet)

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.
