Wailing Critters
Patch 7.2 brought one of the most anticipated features in the pet battling world: a new pet battle dungeon!

To enter the dungeon you only need one level 25 pet in your collection (although it is recommended to have a few more ^^). Head over to Dalaran above the Broken Isles and visit the pet shop. Either Serr'ah or Lio the Lioness will offer you a breadcrumb quest to fly all the way over to the Wailing Caverns in the Barrens.
When you arrive, visit Muyani on top of the entrance and you will be offered the quest Wailing Critters. Muyani will also start the scenario for you.

Inside the dungeon, you will have to beat six waves of enemy pets. In your very first run, you can heal your pets in between each fight. This is the normal mode.
In the respective section here (green skull) you will find some strategies that work well. While having more pets is recommended to be done faster, most of the individual combinations will even work for the whole dungeon (with the help of a lot of healing).
Beating the dungeon on normal mode will reward you with one Ultimate Battle Training Stone.

It also unlocks the Challenge Mode, during which you cannot heal or revive your pets, much like the Celestial Tournament. If you also beat this additional challenge, you get an achievement and two rewards, the pet Son of Skum and a new satchel, the Damp Pet Supplies which has a chance for one of these:

Young Venomfang
Cavern Moccasin
Everliving Spore

The main challenge is not in the individual fights (like it was with the Celestial Touranment), because the fights are not very hard. The difficult part is the amount of fights that will slowly drain the number of full-health pets in your collection.
If you have a large collection of pets at your disposal, the challenge mode won't be hard for you.

Does anyone have a rematch link that will copy all the teams at once?

So for most of the fights in here I've just substituted anything with Nature's Ward for the Teroclaw and only used the Teroclaw for Vilefang. I've got 4 or 5 pets with Nature's Ward and they seem to do the trick just fine. Autumnal Sproutling is a good MVP for this w/Nature's Ward + Sons of the Root which avoids damage and let's nature's ward heal back up.

Teroclaw Hatchling is nerfed. Have to choose Dodge or Nature's Ward.

You will have to update several pet duels where "Teroclaw Hatchling" is used, since in BFA they changed the combination of their powers.

Mine did pretty well using Ravage in the third slot and making sure to use it for the killing blow on each pet for the heal.

I used a moth for one of the "any pet" slots. There's a lot of aquatic pets in the backline, and the moth chews through them easily without having to use an important pet.

I agree! Moths are great as 2nd and 3rd slot fillers, they can dodge stuff with cocoon when timed properly (Blood in the water, Slicing winds) and have a chance to put opponent to sleep with dust throw :)

Start looking for a replacesment for your Teroclaw. In Battle for Azeroth it's Dodge and Nature's Wardwill share a talent spot.

Throughout this dungeon, you will see Teroclaw Hatchling and Anypet as your 2nd and 3rd options. Pick pets with Wish as your 3rd option. I prefer the Hyjal Wisp with Evasion and Wish. The evasion allows you a round of freedom to cast wish if when need it. It also allows you to dodge things like Whirlpool. Also remember, park your Teroclaw on low health but with Nature's Ward active. NW still heals it on the bench. Between Wish and NW, you should never lose your Hatchling.

Other pets with Wish, Celestial Calf, Magic Lamp, Magical Crawdad and Zao

Thank you so much for the guide. I don't have all the pets, so I cheated and brought 2 Iron Starlettes and 2 Super Chickens (Terohawk Hatchlings). Can the challenge mode be run weekly to get more rewards?

Scripts are now up for all the WC fights, but please note than any strat that has you using a random pet will require you to manually select abilities during those portions, unless you're using multiple Emerald Proto-Whelps, or a Dream Whelpling, in which case, the script will handle the ability selections for you :)
