Patch 4.3 PTR: New pets and mounts from Darkmoon Island

As you saw in our Darkmoon Faire video tour, the revamped Faire is now active on the PTR. It brings a batch of new companion pets and mounts for you to collect, including the Darkmoon Dancing Bear, the Swift Forest Strider, and seven brand new companion pets. Each of these mounts and pets must be purchased with game tickets, which are earned by winning the game attractions once per day.

Hop past the jump for all of the new pets and mounts and their ticket costs.

It's going to take you a number of trips to the Faire in order to collect everything available, including all of the mounts, pets, heirlooms, replica items, and more that the Faire offers.
