For those of us who like a little more grind to obtaining pets, Patch 5.2 has introduced a slew of pets available only as drops from various places around the world.
The Ji-Kun Hatchling is one of those pets that
is so ugly that it is actually cute. To make this ball of ugly
adorableness your very own you will need to defeat Ji-Kun inside the
Throne of Thunder and then cross your fingers that one of these pets
drops. This pet has the chance to drops in all variations of the Throne of
Thunder (LFR, Heroic, and Normal). The Ji-Kun Hatchling can be used as a
Battle Pet, can be traded, and is available to both Horde and Alliance
Perhaps unsurprisingly this tiny little robot
comes from a boss called the Dark Animus located in the brand new Throne
of Thunder. The Son of Animus can drop on all versions of this raid and is
also able to be traded and used in Pet Battles.
Much like the Son of Animus, the Spawn of
G'nathus comes from its namesake; a giant purple eel called G'nathus. The
eel and his spawn can be found around Shan'ze Dao in the Townlong Steppes.
This mob can be quite difficult to defeat, so you may want to bring some
friends. The Spawn of G'nathus can be used as a Battle Pet, can be traded,
and is available for both factions.
If you've ever wanted one of those cool robot Sunwell guards for your very own, now is your chance. The Sunreaver Micro-Sentry drops from Haywire Sunreaver Constructs on the Isle of Thunder. These mobs are rare spawns and can pack quite a punch. The Sunreaver Micro-Sentry can be used as a Battle Pet and can be traded.
These super cute little dinosaurs are random
drops from high level Zandalari Dinomancers found on the Isle of Giants.
These mobs also have the chance to drop three other models; the Zandalari
Footlasher, Kneebiter, and Toenibbler. All models can be used as Battle
Pets and can be traded.
Not much is known about the Living Sandling as of yet, however, we do know that he drops somewhere in the Throne of Thunder. It seems likely that the Living Sandling will be able to be used as a Battle Pet and be traded with other players.
The Gusting Grimoire is the brand new pet
introduced into the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game. While we aren't
sure exactly what this pet is supposed to be, it can be used in Pet
Battles and also can be traded to other players once obtained.
World of Warcraft Patch 5.2 has introduced a variety of pets that can only be obtained by finding them in the wild and subduing them in a Pet Battle. All these pets can be found on the Isle of Thunder and are sure to enhance your pet collection. The new wild pets available include:
