Still waiting for a pet battle app...

It would really suck if pets gained from Covenants aren't account wide. At the moment, the only pets that aren't are the Horde/Alliance ones and you can summon your faction equivalent. I get they maybe want to shake up the pet battle meta, but arbitrarily making some pets unavailable to some characters on your account (and as such not available for battle teams) seems like a pretty cheap (I don't mean that in a good way) way to do it. It's feels like the more likely outcome will be to take Covenant pets out of consideration for battle teams - or make certain Covenants the 'go to' for PVP battlers if one of the pets proves particularly strong.
Awesome. I've been looking forward to battle pet news. Thanks
More little slime recolors! I love it. Love me some goofy little blobs.
The 'wrong covenant' thing is ok, for now. I hope they've already planned to disable it after covenants don't matter much anymore, like next expansion or during a shadowlands patch if it makes sense. Imagine if you couldn't summon a particular pet if were weren't Scryers or weren't Oracles.
most likely wont benew pet curecy if they change will be like after shadowland i guess otherwise people gone piss of loot
The pet battle pvp power in its current form seems very questionable.Players could start delaying turns to let a 15 second buff expire. It also has the potential depending on the exact mechanics of significantly buffing the already overpowered dot aoe abilities. Locking pets to be covenant specific is a bad idea and it seems to force multiple characters as the only option.
A timer in a turn-based minigame (even with the limited time between turns) is nonsense... I guess they plan to start it when both players are finished with their ability choices and the actions are performed. But even then I have no idea why they would want to use a timer... they also could do the RNG when a damage ability was chosen to apply this flat damage increase for 1 round only.Unfortunately, I think right now not many people will queue for pet PvP on Alpha to see how it works.
