BlizzCon 2011: Pet battles introduced in Pandaria

Pet Battle Team

Mists of Pandaria will be introducing Pet Battles. You will be able to use your companion pets to battle against each other. There will be leveling, items, teams and better ways to acquire your pets. Here are some highlights:

  • The companion pets can attack wild pets and capture them to add to your collection.
  • The battles will be turn-based.
  • You will be able to customize your pets with names, items and builds.
  • There will be Masters that you can fight and gain a Master Ability for your pet.
  • As you collect pets, you can form them into teams to take into battle.
  • Pets will be account-wide, including levels and customizations.
  • Pets will be tradeable. You will be able to put them on the AH or give as gifts. So you can build up to high-level pets and sell them for high prices.
  • All players will be able to access pet battles.
  • You will be able to use almost all pets.

Looks like we will no longer be able to call our companions “non-combat” pets. Of course, all of these things are subject to change without notice. But this looks like a fun sub-game that many people will want to spend most of their time playing.

The news is out — we’ll be playing Mists of Pandaria! Find out what’s in store with an all-new talent system, peek over our shoulder at our Pandaren hands-on, and get ready to battle your companion pets against others. It’s all here right at WoW Insider!
