Home World of Warcraft Pets Battle Pets of Mechagon and Nazjatar in WoW Patch 8.2

Greetings, traveler! Welcome to Overgear’s look at the newest addition to the World of Warcraft’s collection of battle pets. Continuing exploration of the Patch 8.2 – Rise of Azshara, in this article we will cover drop sources of the new pets from Mechagone and Nazjatar. There is a ton of content in both zones, including elite rares, a new dungeon and raid, battle pets, daily quests, and world quests. If you want to learn more about Mechagone, we have got that covered in the article 8.2 Patch: Mechagon – Location, Dungeon and Outdoor Content.

Mechagon Island

Wandering around Mechagon Island, you may notice some quite common tech – chicken robots Dismantled OOX-35/MG. You can easily find them by using a target macro:

/target Dismantled OOX-35/MG

Once you find one, you can repair it with 25 Spare Parts. There are 2 outcomes:  the repaired chicken will either follow you, return to Rustbolt, and activate a self-destruction sequence or it will grant you the pet – OOX-35/MG. This pet is cageable, meaning you can buy or sell it on the Auction House. A nice nod to Oglethorp Obnoticus and his robot chickens.

Drop from Rares

A number of pets are obtained from elite rares across Mechagon Island. These rares are part of Rest In Pistons achievement and they can be looted once per day.

Wild Pets

«Doesn’t remember what it was originally programmed to do, just wants to battle other pets»

– Summarized Battle Pet collector experience.

There are several pets across Mechagone Island, and none of them can be caged. An achievement for capturing all wild pets on Mechagon Island is Mecha-Safari.

Legendary Pets

There are eight Legendary Pets that you can battle on Mechagon Island. Defeating them all grants the Mighty Minions of Mechagon achievement. First defeat of each pet also grants you an item that can be handed in for a 250 Rustbolt Resistance reputation reward. Eight pets will give you a total of 2000 reputation, allowing you to progress faster on the Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part Two achievement.

Each legendary pet also has a related world quest, which requires you to defeat that pet. World quest also rewards reputation along with battle-training stones such as Flying Battle-Training Stone and Marked Flawless Battle-Stone, Artifact Power, or Polished Pet Charm.

List of Legendary pets:

Nazjatar is a massive zone with a lot of content. It is the core of the Nazjatar Empire and ruled by Queen Azshara and it is the place where the main plot of the Patch 8.2 will unfold.
