2012/04/25 at 7:11 PM
We had a huge patch
last night and there's a lot more information to cover!
First off, in the biggest news,
achievements will be account bound
. Blizzard had hinted they really wanted to do this, but didn't know if they'd have the time. They are now mostly account bound!
Secondly, we datamined more
, and icons. We also previewed the new features in the Pet Battle system, as well as general changes such as spellbook improvements and new female Pandaren fur markings.
Do you want to be the best, that no one ever was?
Battle Pet Training
from a Master Pet Tamer such as
in Goldshire, you will be able to both capture wild pets and battle them. Both types will be tracked on your minimap. The screenshots below show a pet battle we initiated with a
in Northern Stranglethorn.
In addition, mounts and pets have been removed from the Character tab and placed in a separate one:
New Battle Pets
we datamined yesterday are new additiosn to the Pet Battle Journal, as well as some other ones from Cataclysm zones.
We found a ton of pet battle achievements yesterday, and broke them all down. If you're really diligent about chasing these achievements, you'll get

We datamined over
100 new pet battle abilities
yesterday, in addition to the
ones from past builds. There are some abilities shared between pets in the same family, but most vanity pets have unique abilities, like
And as we datamined
, each Pet Battle family has passive racial abilities:
Critters break out of crowd control effects more quickly.
Beasts deal 25% extra damage below half health.
Humanoids recover 2% of their maximum health every time they attack.
Deals 50% additional damage to targets with less than 25% health.
Flying creatures gain 50% extra speed while above 50% health.
The duration of harmful damage over time effects is reduced on Aquatic pets.
Elementals ignore all weather effects.
Undead pets return to life for one round when killed.
Magic pets cannot be dealt more than 50% of their maximum health in one attack.
Comes back to life once per battle, returning to 25% health.
Maps, Spellbook, and Female Pandaren
In general, we haven't done a recap of all the new Mists of Pandaria maps in a while--so here are the ones from the latest patch. Many of these will be familiar, but they have all been altered a bit so are worth revisiting.
New Pandaren Faces
There's several new female Pandaren fur options on the character customization screen--but they can only be accessed through the Randomize option.
The spellbook now shows handy tips by default, as well as tabs showing the abilities for your unused speciailzations. There is a page previewing Core Abilities, but they're bugged to show Warrior abilities for all classes.
