THANKS WAIN

Gusting Grimoire

Flavor Text: Deadly offspring of the ancient mother, Ji-Kun Hatchlings are considered sacred treasures in many cultures.

Living Sandling

Son Of Animus

Flavor Text: Forged in the Throne Of Thunder, these tiny creatures are servents (sic) of the great Dark Animus.

Spawn Of G'nathus
Type: Beast

Thundertail Flapper

The sand elemental certainly intrigues me. I hope we see more of that in the future (I'd like to turn my shaman's earth elemental totem into a sand elemental!)

Both the family type and the abilities may just be placeholders at this point.

For the record, while I was on the Isle of the Thunder King, I had battle pets tracking on but never found anything. Of course I wouldnt expect the electro-beaver to be just wandering around willy nilly. Perhaps I missed it though.

A number of new pets can be found on the Isle of Lightning, including rare spawn drops, wild pets, and raid boss drops.


1. "A number" =/= 2 pets.
2. There are usually 5-8 unique wild pets to be found in each Pandaria Zone. Currently, we have one.
3. There will be raid boss drops from the new raid, and possibly BC raids as well. Currently, we have one.
4. There will be rare spawn pets, and currently we have none.

So don't give up yet! (I certainly haven't!)

My hopes of a mini-Dire Horn or Devilsaur or Pterrorwing may not go unfulfulled!

Agreed. I'm just being overly dramatic. I was so happy to get the Wooly White Rhino for 150k in trade to have my mount/pet/mini pet combo, I hope to do he same with my dire horn.

And I'm a Tauren... That's a lot of horns poking about. :-p

Technically, there's only 1 new pet on the isle atm and the patch notes states new PETS, so it's pretty obvious more are coming.

The raid boss pets will only be in Isle of the Thunder King. I'm not searching mumper's twitter, but a few weeks ago he stated 5.2 would only feature pets from the new raid, but 5.3 would bring more pets to old raids.

For rare spawn pets... where has that been confirmed? It's possible they took the feedback for the new pets in 5.1 and the MInfernal/scourged whelpling to heart and decided not to put rare spawn pets in 5.2.

I understand the rare spawns here as the legendary boss-pets we have to find and defeat to get that cute red panda cub chap. So far we have just one - a thunder beaver...
Patience, grasshopper :)

It's confirmed in the patch note I quoted. I must have worded it wrong... not "rare spawn pets," but "rare spawn drops," as the note says.
Battle pets with long spawn timers still count as wild pets... these are pets that drop from the elite rare spawns in the new zones. (Think Aqua Strider or Grinder)

Methinks it's just one of the robo guards.
Oh, but now I want a pocket elf butler too.
