I ran through this on Shurten just now (Stormwind matron). The four pets on offer are the same four as have been there for some years. Can you describe the new pets? Maybe a different city?

Yeah - there is a matron out in Boralus.  If you head west, jump over the wall by the flight master, and look west you'll see a long bridge on the map.  At the south end of the bridge is a building that is a different color on the map than the buildings around it.  That is the Boralus orphanage.  (IIRC, I don't have the game open at the moment.)

Thanks I'll go through that tonight! I'll have to figure out how to manage it for four characters...

ETA: that worked. And it turns out that the quest given by the matron is different for each matron so one character can do all of them.

Modest changes coming in 8.3, and then at some point later we can expect nerfs to some of the synergies which are super powerful against legendary pets.  Curse of doom -> unholy ascension -> black claw -> flock works against roughly 80% of the legendary pets in 8.2 (sometimes with slight variations), so this isn't a huge surprise.

Man, do you see that Kristin?  Maybe you can finally get back into pet battling.

Nice changes, particularly scaling battles to the team brought in. That will make it much easier to XP new pets. More weather effects, and nerfing damage-reduction abilities also seems good.

Today is one of those confluences of Squirt in the garrison and pet battle week, allowing for very fast pet leveling.

Argh. Wish I'd seen this in time. Oh well.
