5.4 PTR: Celestial Pet Tournament and New Battle Pets
2013/07/25 at 3:37 PM
The Celestial Pet Tournament is now open for testing on the 5.4 PTR, and there's also over 20 new battle pets to collect!
Celestial Pet Tournament
To participate in the pet tournament, speak to
and pick up the weekly quest
The Celestial Tournament
You must have 30 pets at level 25 in order to be able to enter, but this requirement will most likely be tweaked in a future build.
Once zoned into the tournament, you cannot heal your pets. You must exit the tournament to heal your pets, which means you must start the tournament over from the beginning.
There are seven challenges in the tournament: three pet tamers that each have three legendary battle pets, and then four legendary elite battle pets. You must complete them all in order to win the tournament, so it does require you to have leveled a fair number of pets.
To keep things fresh, the three pet tamers will change every week--one is even
Game of Thrones
themed with a Hodor tribute pet!
On the PTR, your collection of pets doesn't copy over, but you get a random assortment of level 25 pets, including some Collector's Edition ones.[/

Today's news is all about battle pets on the PTR: the Pet Journal has been updated with over a dozen new collectible pets for 5.2 (including the adorable
), and we also have information on the new elite battle pets!
Elite Battle Pets
Elite Battle Pets are a new type of rare pet challenge in 5.2, similar to
Pandaren Spirit Tamer
in 5.1. The catch is that you'll be fighting one elite pet, instead of a team.
So far we have found at least one elite pet per zone, and defeating the Elite Battle pets completes
