World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria This article concerns content exclusive to Mists of Pandaria.

Pet capture is the battle pet equivalent to Hunter Hunter's [Tame Beast], but occurs during a pet battle.


  • Pets are caught via PvE battles in the world. Most pets that you can fight, you can catch. In order to catch a pet, you need to get it to low health (below 35%; lower is better) and use your [Trap] ability. Traps upgrade ([Strong Trap] and then [Pristine Trap]) via specific achievements (Money achievement.png Going to Need More Traps, capture 50 battle pets and Money achievement.png Pro Pet Crew, raise 30 battle pets to level 25), improving your chance to catch higher level pets.
  • Your pet must reach level 3 to activate the Trap ability.
  • You can catch up to three of the same type of pet.

Pets you can't capture

  • Pets controlled by Pet tamers.
  • Pets controlled by other players.
  • Legendary pets.
  • Pets you have 3 of already.
  • Pets that would make you exceed the collected pets limit (1000).
