directorygames | Cool Pet Ideas for the Pet Battle Bonus Event0
With Sign of the Critter up, this week is ideal for leveling up your pets. If you’re looking for cool pets here are some pets you can acquire.
The possibilities are endless. You can purchase pets directly from the shop with 50% discounts or from soloing old raids.
Soloing old content yields many rewards: nostalgia, gold, transmogs, achievements and pets! Older raids have been updated with various pets that drop throughout the instance. This week’s Pet Battle Bonus event greatly increases the XP gain from Pet Battles, so if you’re looking for opportunities to get some unique pets and don’t mind revisiting old content consider:
Completing Raiding with Leashes rewards Mr. Bigglesworth. Of course the achievement won’t be completed in a single week, but you will definitely see some pets drop. For this achievement, you will revisit four vanilla raids, like Ahn’Qiraj, Blackwing Lair, Molten Core and Naxxramas.
- Anubisath Idol
- Mini Mindslayer
- Viscidus Globule
- Death Talon Whelpguard
- Untamed Hatchling
- Ashstone Core
- Corefire Imp
- Harbinger of Flame
The old Naxxramas was removed and to get these pets you need to visit the WotlK version of the raid (entrance is located in Dragonblight, Northrend).
- Fungal Abomination
- Giant Bone Spider
- Stitched Pup
Raiding with Leashes II: Attunement Edition reward is Tito and various pets drop in Karazhan, Serpentshrine Cavern and Tempest Keep, home to Kael’thas Sunstrider.
Karazhan (Old Version – entrance is in Deadwing Pass through the main door)
Attumen the Huntsman will still drop Fiery Warhorse’s Reins.
- Fiendish Imp

- Menagerie Custodian
- Netherspace Abyssal
Serpentshrine Caverns (entrance in Zangarmarsh, Outland)

Tempest Keep (entrance located in Netherstorm, Outland)
The raid should definitely be in your soloing routine, because of the Ashes of Al’ar mount.

Raiding with Leashes III: Drinkin’ From the Sunwell is the third achievement and completing it rewards a nice Naaru pet, K’ute. It involves Black Temple, Hyjal and Sunwell Plateau.

- Sunblade Micro-Defender
- Wretched Servant
Raiding with Leashes IV: Wrath of the Lick King was added in Patch 7.1 and includes three Wrath raids: Icecrown Citadel, Trial of the Crusader and Ulduar. If you complete it, you will be mailed a Celestial Invitation and you have to defeat Algalon to get Stardust / Stardust.
