A few new achievements were for added pet collectors
in the latest PTR patch today, according to Wowhead
. The small patch on the test realms contains three new achievements for players who collect 100, 125, and 150 non-combat pets.
Just as with previous pet collecting achievements (Shop Smart, Shop Pet...Smart
, Lil' Game Hunter
), our obsessive efforts will once again be rewarded with a unique pet. We've seen Nuts' Acorn
in the patch 4.2 game files before, and the Celestial Dragon (pictured above) appeared in game files back in Wrath of the Lich King
, but the Brilliant Kaliri is a new addition. Currently, there aren't any datamined pictures of the pet, but I can only assume it will be very similar to the Kaliri
mobs found in Skettis
and other zones from The Burning Crusade
One thing I'm curious about with these pets is if they'll have any special animations or Easter eggs like previous pets have. If you remember, the skunk pet
from the 50-pet achievement pays tribute to Pepé Le Pew from Looney Tunes by chasing nearby Black Tabby
