WoW Patch 7.3 Guide: How to Defeat the Legendary Battle Pets and Get the Felclaw Marsuul Pet

Another patch, another bunch of pet battle achievements to work through so let us help you with that!

As with all major patches to World of Warcraft, the latest patch 7.3: Shadow of Argus has unveiled a whole host of new battle pets to fight and collect, as well as achievements that are geared towards to testing your pet battle prowess.

One such achievement is the Family Fighter which, once completed, will reward players with a cool new pet called the Felclaw Marsuul. But how to you complete this achievement? First of all, you need to defeat all the legendary boss pets scattered throughout Argus. You know the kind I'm talking about? Those tough critters with gold nameplates that show as gold paw prints on the mini map.

In this guide, we are going to tell you where to find all the legendary battle pet bosses and give you are break down on how to complete the Family Fighter achievement to get the Felclaw Marsuul pet.

Legendary Pet Abilities

Patch 7.3 also introduces some new, really powerful abilities that only these legendary pets possess -- and they can be quite tricky to work around. Here's what you can expect to encounter.

Greater Apocalypse

This ability calls down three meteors, which will fall 20 rounds from when the ability is used -- and they will instantly kill your team. Luckily, the ability has a 20-round cooldown as well, so it's likely that your opponent will play this one first -- forcing you to defeat the boss as quickly as possible.

It is vital to pay attention to what type of pet it is so that you can use ones that are powerful against it. The attack itself is weak again humanoid pets, but annihilates undead ones.

Antaen Cannon

This ability instantly deals 3105 Mechanical damage, but forces the user to recharge for two rounds afterward -- rendering it unable to move.

If you come across one of the pets with this ability, you might want to consider using an elemental-type pet with a big health pool to attempt to soak the damage this inflicts. It is incredibly strong against beast pets.

Void Gate

This ability deals 564 Magic damage and forces the opponent's highest health pet to swap into battle. Apart from the big magic damage this attack causes, (although it is weaker against mechanical-type pets), you can see where this ability causes problems. Part of beating some of the tougher battle pets is all about which pets you are using to combat them and in which order.

Void Gate has the potential to mess up your order/attack sequence so be prepared! It is particularly strong against flying pets.

Where to Find Legendary Pet Battle Bosses

The planet of Argus is divided into three new zones -- Krokuun, Antoran Wastes, and Mac'Aree. And the 18 creatures you need to find for this achievement are spread all over the planet, so it's going to take a bit of time to find them all.

Upon defeating all the corrupt pet battle bosses in Argus, you will receive the 10-point achievement, Anomalous Animals of Argus. So far you have been able to battle all the creatures with any team you want from the menagerie in your pet journal -- but if you want the main achievement, you are going to have to work a lot harder.

The Family Fighter achievement is made up of ten other achievements that all require you to defeat each creature multiple times. But each time you do it, you need to defeat them using a team made up of the same pet family. These meta achievements are called:

  • Aquatic Assault 
  • Critical Critters
  • Elemental Escalation
  • Humanoid Havoc
  • Mechanical Melee
  • Beast Blitz
  • Draconic Destruction
  • Fierce Flyers
  • Magical Mayhem
  • Unstoppable Undead

Once you have completed all of those achievements, you'll be able to welcome the cute little Felclaw Marsuul into your menagerie. 


There you have it! You now know where to find all the legendary pet battle bosses and their abilities -- but you are going to have to find out the teams that work in order to complete each battle successfully and nail this achievement.
