Crafted JC pets aren't rare quality

Pet Battles
For some reason when I crafted my Jade Owl it came out uncommon and my sapphire cub cam poor quality. Is this intended or are they going to be buffed at some point , are the crafted pets random quality as well or are they given this quality just cause?

The only reason to even craft these pets is for aesthetic purposes otherwise don't bother.
That's truly sad. Try crafting more, maybe they have random quality.

I just wish Blizz never introduced qualities, it only adds an element of grind, not reward for finding a blue.
I created 3-4 Enchanted Lanterns before the patch and I'm pretty sure they were all the same stats.

I think they might come out the same quality every time. I'm not sure but I want someone to especially double check on Sapphire cub because it's b.s. that it even came out poor quality.
Whaaaat? That's horrible! I expected my sapphire cub to be rare:(
I don't think any crafted pets have a quality. None of my engie ones have one. Same as the promo/holiday/achieve ones. Only wild pets have quality apparently.

yeah it came out poor quality 3 times in a row. I noticed the pattern and said "awesome this is completely stupid." I'm hoping it gets hot fixed so these crafted pets become rare quality.
All crafted pets thus far are of an Uncommon quality. Not rare. Just as most bought pets are of Uncommon quality. However, the Sapphire Cub has been coming out Poor. Just send in bug reports and start a bug thread. The same thing happened to me today. On the bright side, they announced they will be upgrading the pet battle systems, and implementing a way to increase obtained pets rarity level. Not sure how yet, but it is something to look forward to none the less. I'm going to assume the sapphire cub will be hot fixed as soon as possible.

All pets have a quality. It's just without an addon you don't know the quality of pets unless they're were wild pets.
I just made a Sapphire Cub and my addon says it's rare.
I was lucky with a rare saphire cub...

Worse is the Red Cricket... there i wasnt lucky and got a garbage poor one

The Red Cricket truly is the worst, because not only is it random quality, but you can only try once per character. Ever. That's asinine.
I crafted six sapphire cubs: uncommon, poor, common, poor, rare, common, in that order.

I've crafted two jade owls, both came out uncommon although one was balanced and the other was bred for speed.

For three freaking spirits of harmony, I'm pretty ticked that they have a good chance to be poor.
AFAIK, Jade Owls should always be Uncommon. Sapphire Cubs are random quality. Which does indeed, suxxor.

Not sure if they are gonna change it with 5.1 but according to the pet tracker add-on my celestial dragon (achieve pet) is rare, my lil rag is rare, my onyixian whelpling (anniversary pet) is rare, my monk is rare, but my personal world destroyer is uncommon.

The Grassland Hoppers in Townlong Steppes are pretty much exactly the same as the Red Cricket and easy to farm for rares.
I didn't expect rare, but I expected at least uncommon for something costing 3 spirits of harmony.
For three motes of harmony they should be rare. Esp seeing as how if they're not in order to battle with them we'd need three motes of harmony plus a stone to upgrade them. That's excessive IMO.
Unfortunately the Jade Owl is always uncommon and has 3 breeds. The Sapphire Cub can be all 4 qualities and has only one breed. The Mechanical Pandaran Dragonling is always uncommon and has one breed.

I am still irritated that I have yet to get better than common for my Sapphire Cubs.
on the armory the sapphire cub i have is showing as a blue

1075
260
390

in the game, the pet shows as a grey

although the pet has a high speed, it's HP and POWER drasticly suffer.

along with stone rush and prowl talents being JUNK for a pet with low HP as this one has.
