Pet Menagerie

To unlock the Pet Menagerie, you’ll first need to defeat three rare pets located around your garrison. Completing the quest unlocks the plot which will open up a series of round robin challengers. Winning 1,000 pet battles in Draenor will reward the level 3 blueprint.

I was really surprised to see all these pets in my garrison today, especially when I only expected the daily but I found them all to be very doable. It really helps when you have your full collection unlike the PTR for the Celestial Tournament but expect this post to expand as I complete all the challenges.

As usual, you can check out my strategies on YouTube.

Treasure Goblin’s Pack

The Treasure Goblin was added as part of the Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Collector‘s or Digital Edition. I had a chance to collect mine from the in-game mail earlier along with the following letter:

From the writings of Abd Al-Hazir:

“Some devious little goblins have been
robbing our merchants! When pursued,
they simply open portals and disappear
with a most aggravating chuckle. The
peasantry seem to believe that the
Goblins serve a great demon lord
known as Greed and furthermore, that
their portals lead to Greed’s domain! A
ludicrous notion, truly.”

Watch your coin purse, adventurer.

Treasure Goblin

I wasn’t sure what to expect from his abilities or animations but when you summon him, you can hear gold jingling. He will also throw handfuls of gold every now and then (which can’t be picked up) and got a real kick out of his death animation. It’s just what you’d expect if you’ve killed one in D3 (as seen towards the end of the video).

As usual, you can see all his abilities (Coin Toss, Wild Magic, Dodge, Magic Sword, Sear Magic and Portal) over my usual circuit of tamers in Pandaria. I forgot to change one of my teams during the Flowing battle but it still worked out – the result of not levelling any pets for several weeks, I guess.

Having both Wild Magic and Dodge seems pretty OP (especially during that one fight) but if you don’t mind his constant cackle, he’s a pretty fun pet to have around.

Just remember, keep and eye on your coin purse.


Just look at what I found in my mailbox today, Murkalot’s Flail was waiting with the accompanying Feat of Strength. Not surprisingly, I spent the next hour levelling him up but not before I used a Celestial Coin to buy a Pet Treat from Master Li. These days I do up to six tamers and spirits (whenever I’m in the mood to level a pet) but today I only needed five.


Murkalot has some really cool animations although I didn’t see him in person until I was standing in front of Aki. Generally my usual circuit follows this route – Aki > Nishi > Flowing > Shu > Burning > Yon.

With the pet treat I didn’t need to battle Yon so once he was fully levelled, I took him out to see what other things he could do. You can check all the animations and battle highlights in the video.

Now how cool is that?

I wonder if this will convince anyone to buy a virtual ticket now? :)
