Shadowlands Alpha Battle Pet Roundup - PvP Battle Pet Power, New Pets and Abilities



It’s been a few weeks since our last battle pet roundup, so here’s another update on pet battles in Shadowlands!

We have quite a few new updates since the last one, including a bunch of new battle pet models, new abilities, and some news for PvP pet battles. As we’re starting to see more battle pet content added to Alpha, we’ve created a dedicated guide to keep track of all these new pets and updates.

Early Look at Shadowlands Alpha Battle Pet ChangesOverview of Collectable Battle Pets and Updates in Shadowlands

PvP Pet Battle Power

PvP pet battling may seem like its getting a bit of a shakeup, potentially receiving some new mechanics.

NEW 9.0 Pet Battle PvP Power – Your pet’s abilities have a high chance to trigger Fluffy Victory, increasing their damage by 88 against other players’ pets for 15 sec.

Covenant Pets

It seems like once we obtain a pet from a Covenant, we may not be able to summon this pet. This is unlike previous gated pets, such as the class order hall ones.

You are not the correct Covenant for this companion.
