How to unlock your World of Warcraft Menagerie

There’s a feature sitting right in your Garrison in World of Warcraft that you might have barely used, but it’s something that pet battle enthusiasts really do want. If you’ve never even tried out pet battles, you might not even realize it’s there. It’s the Menagerie, and a new development post provides a quick guide to unlocking and using the Menagerie for players who haven’t really thought about it from the start of the expansion to the present.

Unlocking the Menagerie requires a level 3 Garrison, a level 100 character, and somewhere between five and 10 max-level rare-quality pets. You have to defeat three particularly nasty pets roaming your Garrison in order to unlock it, something that requires a bit of planning ahead but can be handled with a variety of different configurations. Then you’ll unlock the ability to step into the Menagerie ring for daily opponents, earning battle stones to upgrade your pet’s quality when you win – a fine reward for all the pet-slinging you’ve done up until now.

Several millions I think (although I’m not one of them, gave it up after Pandaland).

First time I did the menagerie I only had one level 25 pet, and I managed to use just that one pet to beat all three of the quest mobs to unlock the menagerie.  The article is a bit misleading as the quest is easily done if you have Chrominius (I might have spelled that wrong) or a Hydra pet.  I would defeat one pet, heal my pet, and then move on to the next.  The menagerie is also a good way to get several level 25 pet’s fast if you have many level 100 alts.

“Unlocking the Menagerie requires a level 3 Garrison, a level 100 character, and somewhere between five and 10 max-level rare-quality pets.”

And that, my friends, is where I lost interest in reading what Blizzard had to say about this. I’m a fan of Pokemon and all, but that battle pet grind is, imo, atrocious, and… no. Just, no. =/

I did it with 3 level 25 pets and two level 23 pets.  It’s safe to say, it took me a few tries.  It was a struggle to unlock and when I did I found out it offers even harder daily fights, which was greatly disappointing.  I think they offer more newb friendly fights now, which is good.  I could do a few of the pet battle dailies found around WoD, but not all of them, so the menagerie offered me very little.  It was a very disappointing garrison addition, I hope they changed this and made it even more pet battle newb friendly.

agemyth Pet battles are available at low level, just not the menagerie. Check in with pet battle representatives in Orgrimmar and Stormwind to get started. :)

I accidentally bought a WoW Token with gold when I launched the client to see what people were saying about it on my F2P level 20 character. I figured since I don’t have WoD that pet battles might be a fun thing to finally get to focus on instead of LEVELLEVELLEVEL REPREPREP and all that. Makes me kinda sad this is level 100 only, but I suppose they have to try to upsell me on that expansion in any way possible :P
