Patch 4.1 PTR: New pet collecting, food, drink and tabard achievements

Anne Stickney

For players who have been collecting tabards and pets since the launch of the achievement system, there hasn't been a lot to look forward to. Once the Lil' Game Hunter achievement had been obtained, there were no additional achievements for collecting more pets. Along with a host of new pets and mounts, in patch 4.1, two new pet collecting achievements have been added: Petting Zoo, for collecting 100 pets, and Menagerie, for collecting 125 pets. As of right now, it doesn't look like any new pets will be given as rewards for these achievements, but as with all things on the PTR, that may change.

In addition to the pet collecting achievements, there is now an achievement for learning the Vial of the Sands mount, a new achievement called Cataclysmically Delicious for dining on 100 different kinds of food, and a new drinking achievement called Drown Your Sorrows for drinking 50 different types of beverages. To top it all off, there's even a new achievement for the tabard collectors out there called Thirty Tabards, which you complete upon equipping 30 unique tabards.

There are also some new achievements for Dungeons and Raids involving the new ZA and ZG 5-man dungeons, as well as new statistics trackers for the new Cataclysm raid bosses. All in all, it looks like achievement hunters will have a fair amount of new material to chase after and complete.
