Blizzard unveils Pet Battles on the official MoP site — and beta

Blizzard unveils Pet Battles in the MoP Game Guide

Pet battles are one of Mists of Pandaria‘s most-anticipated features, and Blizzard’s been taking its time implementing these furry free-for-alls to get the quality just right. Today the devs have unveiled a new Pet Battle System section to the MoP website highlighting the ins and outs of the system, including how you can get new pets in the wild, what pet battle stats mean, and more.

The devs have stated in the past that pet battling is meant to be a mostly stress-free affair; you won’t see the names of the people whose pets you battle, and the game will only keep track of your wins, not your losses. Don’t expect to find bleeding-edge pet battle progression groups anytime soon. That’s the right call, though — the game needs more fun, casual stuff to do, not less.

Check out the pet battle guide here, and if you have an MoP beta account, patch it today — pet battles are playable!

It’s open warfare between Alliance and Horde in Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft’s next expansion. Jump into five new levels with new talents and class mechanics, try the new monk class, and create a pandaren character to ally with either Horde or Alliance. Look for expansion basics in our Mists FAQ, or dig into our spring press event coverage for more details!
