Engineering pet changes mean Pierre can be caged

Patch 52 Engineering gets new battle pet
Everyone's favorite pug, Blizzard Community Manager Crithto, posted this morning about some long-awaited changes to several pets. This included our beloved Pierre, the engineering cooking stove of legend. While, in the past, he was not cageable or tradeable, and was also BoP and unique, you can now have as many Pierres as your heart desires. As long as your heart desires no more than three. He's also tradeable, which is great news, and as Crithto adds, this also applies to Rascal-Bot. He fades into insignificance next to Pierre, though.

We have a few hotfixes to share with you and these changes should be in game now, or will take effect once the realms have been restarted:
  • Pierre and Rascal-Bot are no longer Bind on Pickup; they can now be caged and you can collect up to 3 of each.
  • Rascal-Bot's Phaser spell is now a one-round ability. The tooltip still erroneously states that it is a two-round ability which we plan to correct at a later date.
  • Jadefire Spirit's Fade ability now has an eight-round cooldown.

There are already reports on Wowhead of the hotfix having come into action, so get on and get crafting! The world needs more Pierre.

Patch 5.4 PTR: Jard and his amazing engineering journal

Patch 54 PTR Jard and his amazing engineering journal
For those of us who have picked the best profession (that would be engineering), we've finally got some new schematics in patch 5.4 to mess around with! Fortunately, there are no reputations to grind, no insane amount of gold or obscure items we have to pay to obtain these new schematics. In fact, in a departure from the usual, all engineers have to obtain is one item to learn all new schematics for patch 5.4: Chief Engineer Jard's Journal. At the present time, the journal drops from any mob in the Vale -- I got mine from the first sha I killed.

Reading the journal will teach you Jard's secrets. Apparently, he really wasn't into explosives at all. Patch 54 PTR Jard and his amazing engineering journal You'll get the schematics for Pierre, the Rascal Bot, the Advanced Refrigeration Unit, and the Sky Claw when you learn the journal, as well as the item you'll need to make all of them -- Jard's Peculiar Energy Source. And this is where it gets a little frustrating, to say the least. Creating the energy source is easy, you only need 10 Ghost Iron Bars. What's frustrating is the cooldown -- you can only make one energy source per day. It's very much like the cooldown for Imperial Silk, except that there isn't an option to use Spirits of Harmony to bypass the cooldown at the present time.

Patch 5.4 PTR: New pets, pet battle tournament, and more

Patch 54 PTR New wild pets, pet battle tournament, and more
In addition to Moon Moon, the dire wolf pet dropped by the new Darkmoon Faire boss mentioned earlier today, patch 5.4 already seems full of new content for pet battle aficionados.

First is a datamined scenario currently titled The Celestial Tournament. As of now, the achievement for this tournament is listed under the Pet Battles subcategory, so it's very likely the pet battle tournament mentioned in the patch 5.4 patch notes. A new battle pet named Essence of Xuen provides some hint as to the rewards possible.
