These abilities are attached to what we believe to be a new NPC team pet:

This ability is not currently attached to an NPC pet, or a player pet:

## 4. Flock & Black Claw Numbers

The below numbers were provided by Lazey:

Examples (don’t blame me for Blizzard math and rounding weirdness *g*):

Round 1: 3x 51 damage (153 total)

Round 2: 3x 128 damage (51+34 = 85*1.5 = 128 = 384 total)

Round 3: 3x 179 damage (51+34+34 = 119*1.5 = 179 = 539 total)

A pure Flock attack does 1076 in total in Shadowlands.

Round 1: 3x 51 damage (153 total)

Round 2: 3x 102 damage (51*2,0 = 102 = 308 total)

Round 3: 3x 102 damage (51*2.0 = 102 = 308 total)

769 total damage (without racial multipliers, crits, flat damage increase etc.)

So far it looks like we’ll see a damage increase of Swarm abilities when not using other damage modifiers.

Round 1: 3x 188 damage (51+136 = 188x3 = 564 total)

Round 2: 3x 265 damage (51+34 = 85*1.5 = 128+136 = 265x3 = 795 total)

Round 3: 3x 316 damage (51+34+34 = 119*1.5 = 179+136 = 316x3 = 948 total)

So we have 2307 damage in total in Shadowlands.

Round 1: 3x 188 damage (51+136 = 188x3 = 564 total)

Round 2: 3x 376 damage (51+136 = 188*2.0 = 376x3 = 1128 total)

Round 3: 3x 376 damage (51+136 = 188*2.0 = 376x3 = 1128 total)

2820 total damage (without racial multipliers, crits, etc.)

Round 1: 3x 188 damage (51+136 = 188x3 = 564 total)

Round 2: 3x 332 damage (51+34+136 = 221*1.5 = 332x3 = 996 total)

Round 3: 3x 316 damage (51+34+34 = 255*1.5 = 383x3 = 1149 total)

Shadowlands:

Round 1: 3x 69 damage (51-119+136 = 69x3 = 207 total)

Round 2: 3x 146 damage (51+34 = 85*1.5 = 128-119+136 = 146x3 = 438 total)

Round 3: 3x 197 damage (51+34+34 = 119*1.5 = 179-119+136 = 197x3 = 591 total)

Round 3: 3x 315 damage (51+34+34 = 119*1.5 = 179+136 = 315x3 = 945 total)

1236 / 1590 total damage

Live servers:

Round 1: 3x 69 damage (51-119+136 = 69x3 = 207 total)

Round 3: 3x 138 damage (51-119+136 = 69*2.0 = 138x3 = 414 total)

Round 3: 3x 376 damage (51+136 = 188*2.0 = 376x3 = 1128 total)

1034 / 1749 total damage

Shadowlands:

Round 1: 3x blocked (51-226+136 = 0x3 = 0 total, no SD applied)

Round 2: 3x blocked (51+34-226+136 = 0x3 = 0 total, no SD applied)

Round 3: 3x 29 damage (51+34+34-226+136 = 29x3 = 87 total)

Round 3: 3x 249 damage (51+34+34 = 119*1.5 = 179-66+136 = 249x3 = 747 total)

Round 3: 3x 315 damage (51+34+34 = 119*1.5 = 179+136 = 315x3 = 945 total)

1704 / 1902 total damage

Live servers:

Round 1: 3x 121 damage (51-66+136 = 121x3 = 363 total)

Round 2: 3x 138 damage (51-66+136 = 121*2.0 = 242x3 = 726 total)

Round 3: 3x 138 damage (51-66+136 = 121*2.0 = 242x3 = 726 total)

Round 3: 3x 376 damage (51+136 = 188*2.0 = 376x3 = 1128 total)

1815 / 2217 total damage

## 5. New Pets

### 5.1 Potential New Player Pets

So, the Pocket Colossus was replaced by the Pocket PHA7-YNX on the Alpha. However, their models are incredibly different, and they have different flavor text, so we might see the Colossus come back.

Pocket Colossus replaced by:

*We hope you're all doing well, and until next time: happy battling!*

Before we get into those, though, we have our obligatory spoiler warning:

These abilities are attached to what we believe to be a new NPC team pet:

This ability is not currently attached to an NPC pet, or a player pet:

The below numbers were provided by Lazey:

Examples (don’t blame me for Blizzard math and rounding weirdness *g*):

- Ikkys’ Flock base damage in the journal is 153 so one of the three hits does 51 damage, ⅔ of that is 34. I will use multipliers 2.0/1.5 for Shattered Defenses pre/post nerf.

Round 1: 3x 51 damage (153 total)

Round 2: 3x 128 damage (51+34 = 85*1.5 = 128 = 384 total)

Round 3: 3x 179 damage (51+34+34 = 119*1.5 = 179 = 539 total)

A pure Flock attack does 1076 in total in Shadowlands.

- On live servers you see this:

Round 1: 3x 51 damage (153 total)

Round 2: 3x 102 damage (51*2,0 = 102 = 308 total)

Round 3: 3x 102 damage (51*2.0 = 102 = 308 total)

769 total damage (without racial multipliers, crits, flat damage increase etc.)

So far it looks like we’ll see a damage increase of Swarm abilities when not using other damage modifiers.

- Now let’s take these examples and add Ikkys’ yet unchanged Black Claw flat 136 damage increase:

Round 1: 3x 188 damage (51+136 = 188x3 = 564 total)

Round 2: 3x 265 damage (51+34 = 85*1.5 = 128+136 = 265x3 = 795 total)

Round 3: 3x 316 damage (51+34+34 = 119*1.5 = 179+136 = 316x3 = 948 total)

So we have 2307 damage in total in Shadowlands.

- On live servers we see:

Round 1: 3x 188 damage (51+136 = 188x3 = 564 total)

Round 2: 3x 376 damage (51+136 = 188*2.0 = 376x3 = 1128 total)

Round 3: 3x 376 damage (51+136 = 188*2.0 = 376x3 = 1128 total)

2820 total damage (without racial multipliers, crits, etc.)

- Ikkys’ Shadowlands Flock with live server Black Claw calculation would be 2709 total damage (probably we will never experience that):

Round 1: 3x 188 damage (51+136 = 188x3 = 564 total)

Round 2: 3x 332 damage (51+34+136 = 221*1.5 = 332x3 = 996 total)

Round 3: 3x 316 damage (51+34+34 = 255*1.5 = 383x3 = 1149 total)

- Now looking into Ikkys' Black Claw + Flock vs. a fictional shield that reduces 119 damage from every attack (one time assuming it being active all the time, second time assuming it’s gone in round 3 of Flock)

Shadowlands:

Round 1: 3x 69 damage (51-119+136 = 69x3 = 207 total)

Round 2: 3x 146 damage (51+34 = 85*1.5 = 128-119+136 = 146x3 = 438 total)

Round 3: 3x 197 damage (51+34+34 = 119*1.5 = 179-119+136 = 197x3 = 591 total)

Round 3: 3x 315 damage (51+34+34 = 119*1.5 = 179+136 = 315x3 = 945 total)

1236 / 1590 total damage

Live servers:

Round 1: 3x 69 damage (51-119+136 = 69x3 = 207 total)

Round 2: 3x 138 damage (51-119+136 = 69*2.0 = 138x3 = 414 total)

Round 3: 3x 138 damage (51-119+136 = 69*2.0 = 138x3 = 414 total)

Round 3: 3x 376 damage (51+136 = 188*2.0 = 376x3 = 1128 total)

1034 / 1749 total damage

- Checking Ikkys' Black Claw + Flock vs. a stronger fictional shield that reduces 226 damage from every attack (one time assuming it being active all the time, second time assuming it’s gone in round 3 of Flock)

Shadowlands:

Round 1: 3x blocked (51-226+136 = 0x3 = 0 total, no SD applied)

Round 2: 3x blocked (51+34-226+136 = 0x3 = 0 total, no SD applied)

Round 3: 3x 29 damage (51+34+34-226+136 = 29x3 = 87 total)

Round 3: 3x 255 damage (51+34+34+136 = 255x3 = 765 total)

87 / 852 total damage

Live servers:

Round 1: 3x blocked damage (51-226+136 = 0x3 = 0 total, no SD applied)

Round 2: 3x blocked damage (51-226+136 = 0x3 = 0 total, no SD applied)

Round 3: 3x blocked damage (51-226+136 = 0x3 = 0 total, no SD applied)

Round 3: 3x 188 damage (51+136 = 188x3 = 564 total)

0 / 564 total damage

- And another Ikkys' Black Claw + Flock vs. a weaker fictional shield that reduces 66 damage from every attack (one time assuming it being active all the time, second time assuming it’s gone in round 3 of Flock)

Shadowlands:

Round 1: 3x 121 damage (51-66+136 = 121x3 = 363 total)

Round 2: 3x 198 damage (51+34 = 85*1.5 = 128-66+136 = 198x3 = 594 total)

Round 3: 3x 249 damage (51+34+34 = 119*1.5 = 179-66+136 = 249x3 = 747 total)

Round 3: 3x 315 damage (51+34+34 = 119*1.5 = 179+136 = 315x3 = 945 total)

1704 / 1902 total damage

Live servers:

Round 1: 3x 121 damage (51-66+136 = 121x3 = 363 total)

Round 2: 3x 138 damage (51-66+136 = 121*2.0 = 242x3 = 726 total)

Round 3: 3x 138 damage (51-66+136 = 121*2.0 = 242x3 = 726 total)

Round 3: 3x 376 damage (51+136 = 188*2.0 = 376x3 = 1128 total)

1815 / 2217 total damage

So, the Pocket Colossus was replaced by the Pocket PHA7-YNX on the Alpha. However, their models are incredibly different, and they have different flavor text, so we might see the Colossus come back.

The last 4 Battle Pets you have listed, I wonder if maybe those might be 2021 Shadowlands Children's Week rewards?
