5.2 patchnotes time! 


  • Many new Battle Pets and Battle Pet abilities have been added.
    • First look over here!
      • isle of giants (5) Spectral porcupette, Zalandari anklerender, Zalandari footslasher, Zalandari Kneebender, Zalandari toenibbler. All of the Zalandari dinos are beasts, we aren’t 100% on the spectal procupette, but we are betting undead.
      • The elite battle pet quest has 4 new pets Red Panda, mountain panda, snowy panda, and the sunfur panda. All of these guys are also beasts.
      • 4 new fishing pets! Tiny blue carp, tiny green carp, tiny red carp, tiny white carp. All aquatic pets!
      • Isle of thundar has 5 new pets! The sunreaver micro sentry (mechanical), electrified razortooth (elemental), Elder python (beast and wicked cool snake!), Swamp croaker (aquatic awesome frog), Thundertail flapper (elemental)
      • Throne of Thunder Raid has 3, the living sandling (elemental) dropps from throne of thunder. Son of Animus (mechanical) Dropps from animus. Ji-kun hatchling (flying) Dropps from Ji-kun
      • Finally there are 3 other pets! The gusting Grimore from the latest TCG expansion, G’nathus dropps from a new elete spawn in townlong steppes with the same name, and pierre the cookpot pet who is basically a living oven! He’s made by engineers but so far there is no word on how to get the recipe.  
  • Master Trainers in Northrend, Cataclysm, and Courageous Yon will no longer field pets with higher than intended stats.
  • Pets that had been affected by a crowd-control ability will now be granted Resilience, making them immune to crowd control for a short while.
  • Battle Pet Bandages now stack to 25 and are BOA.
  • Battle-Stones now have a chance to be awarded from PvP Pet Battles.
  • Pets whose color schemes change each time they are summoned have returned. Older pets with this behavior now have it back, as well as some newcomers.
  • Taming the World now lists its reward correctly in the Achievements pane.
  • Level capped players will now have a chance to earn Lesser Charms of Good Fortune after winning a pet battle versus a pet within 5 levels of the highest level pet on their team. Higher-level pets will offer a better chance to earn a charm.
  • Winning a pet battle versus a team within 5 levels of the player's highest-level pet will now award player experience.
  • Fleeing a pet battle will no longer despawn the pet that was being battled, but doing so will now inflict some damage on the fleeing pet battle team.
  • Disconnecting from a pet battle will once again respawn the pets you were fighting.
  • Any wild pet that has been killed in a pet battle will now never respawn.
  • A number of new pets can be found on the Isle of Lightning, including rare spawn drops, wild pets, and raid boss drops.
  • Elite Battle Pets have been added to the game world. These rare pets will spawn alone against an entire team. The Beasts of Fable taming quest will now become available from Gentle San or Sara Finkleswitch once Aki the Chosen has been defeated. Defeating all of the fabled beasts will award the new Red Panda pet, while completing the associated daily quest has a chance to award the rare brown, white, and orange variants.
