Error: Can't Add Companion To Your Account

Customer Support
My character bought Rustberg Gull from vendor in Tol Barad. When right-clicking the item in the bags, I see these error messages:
Can't Add Companion To Your Account
You can't have any more pets.


How can I add the companion?
Until you can crate some up and move them around to bring you below the maximum number of companions... you can't.

Note that this won't happen until 9/25.

To add to this, if you have multiples of the same pet in your log, you can release some until you get below the 500 pet limit.

I'm at 645...
Another error message I saw on the first day, something like, cannot have any more of that type, I saw that message on over a dozen of my alts. Could I have lost some non-duplicate companions from that?

I don't believe so. That was probably triggered from trying to add Unique companions to the list, such as the Netherwhelp.

As for the pet cap, it's at 500 total and the 3 of each type will eventually be enforced. Though you can't cage pets, you can abandon them by clicking Release. Note that you cannot Release your last copy of the pet, though it seems like you will be able to cage it once it comes out.

I ran into this issue the morning when trying to add the Pandaren Monk to my collection.

I am unable to release any duplicate pets from my companion list; the option is greyed out.
On a second account, I did get a message that the Pandaren Monk was added - chat yellow text; however, then I received the same message regarding too many pets. I looked in the companion pet inventory on my 2nd account and the monk doesn't show.

Guess I'll wait a couple weeks to grab the pet from the mail on the rest of my toons.
I have 150 pets and only 1/3 of this type of pet and yet still receiving this error ...

any other options?
im haveing the same thing happen to me! help!
Have the same problem with pets I bought out of AH and I only have 83 pets total.
I am having the same error for a lvl 25 Terrible Turnip I just bought off of the AH. I only have 187 pets and none of them are duplicates.

You need to already have an equal or greater level pet to learn it.
Therefore, you will need to level one of your pets to 25 to learn it.
Also some you have to have rep to add to your collection! Look into that as well!

Usually if a pet requires a specific reputation it is also to purchase, those pets are usually Bind on Pick Up.

If the pet is later caged though, learning the pet from the cage shouldn't have a reputation requirement as far as I am aware.

To avoid confusion, since the original cap for pets has been raised to 1000 with patch 5.4 I'm going to lock this thread.
