Maps/waypoints of all master pet tamers.

Pet Battles
Now that the daily pet battles have finally been fixed this Tuesday, you should now be able to challenge each and every master pet tamer every day. Since this is a great way to powerlevel low level pets, I whipped up Tomtom waypoints with descriptions, including levels, names, and pet classes and just plain old Wowhead maps for those who prefer not to use addons. The waypoints require installing the very useful AddOn, Tomtom. :)

Wowhead Maps:

Kalimdor + Uldum/Mt Hyjal

Eastern Kingdoms + Twilight Highlands




(Unfortunately it seems like Wowhead doesn't have the Pandaria continent map up yet, so I had to use Azeroth)

Hope this helped any other avid pet battlers out there!
I ran out of textspace up above, but in case people wanted to know more:

Why bother with the maps?
After you complete the initial "Battle Pet Masters: XYZ" quest, objectives and handy arrows no longer show up on your minimap or map. Having an awful memory, I personally wanted visual representation of tamers without having to tab to Wowhead, search by name, for each individual tamer.

Why bother with battling NPC tamers?
Only the grand master dailies provide bags that have a chance of Porcupette/bandages. However, all tamers provide about 4x more XP than a random pet battle and since their class compositions are always fixed, you can swap out different pets each time to counter each tamer. Thus it becomes very easy to powerlevel lower level pets by dropping the last pet's health as low as it possibly can go, passing until your high level pet dies, swapping out your low level pet, and using one or two attacks to gain full XP as if your low pet had beaten all 3 pets itself. Instant full level (or more) :)

To expand on that thought, I've noticed Undead pets are incredibly useful for this tactic. I start with the lower level pet first, let it swing once, swap out to my Undead, bring the last enemy pet to as low as it possibly can, and pass until my Undead dies and the 1 round of immortality procs. In that 1 round, I kill the enemy pet. However, immediately after that the Undead pet dies as well - and boom, all the XP goes to the initial low level pet.

The Undead pet tactic simply helps reduce RNG that can happen with low level pets missing that last hit or getting unluckily crit or whatever nonsense. :) It's simply a bit less risky.

TL;DR: NPC tamers are useful for people who already have high-level pets and are trying to level others as fast as possible for whatever reason (the class, the achievement for 75 lvl 10 or lvl 25 pets, etc.).

Personally I greatly prefer battling tamers to grinding multiple random pets, but maybe you feel the opposite. Either way, I hope I was able to help anyone out there who felt the same way as me.
Super, thanks!
What Undead do you favor for your Undead leveling technique?

How high a pet tamer can you successfully use your Undead technique? I doubt even two level 25 Undead could beat the level 24 pets of Bloodknight Antari in Shadowmoon Valley.
Yes, the undead tip is not for the level 24+ tamers - it's more for the pushovers in Kalimdor/Eastern Kingdom that you can plow through and then mash pass until their pets get your higher level pet to die.

For the level 25 tamers, I wouldn't recommend PLing anything lower than 23. It definitely gets harder at that point, basically for the max level tamers you need to exactly counter their classes as hard as you can.

Certain level 25 tamers are easier to PL off than others. Antari is one of the ones that is difficult unless the pet you are PLing happens to be strong against his comp.

Easier tamers for example would be the ones in Northrend, they grant level 25XP but because they're mostly undead, you can just use a 25 Toad with critter abilities and steamroll your way through most of the tamers there.

For tamers like Antari, if you really want to do it, my recommendation would be to counter their classes exactly and specifically. For example use L25 Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling against his Magic pet, and a L25 Aquatic or a Critter (a snail is decent) against his Elemental, and hope that your first 2 high level pets were strong enough to wreck through their matched pet and do about 50% hp of the next pet's health before dying.

When I'm countering tamers pet for pet in this way, it might be worth mentioning that there will always be 1 specific pet that goes last, and the pet that starts first is between the other 2 pets. On some tamers I've found it to be fairly consistent which pet they choose to go first (Antari will send out his Magic pet first 80% of the time) but on other tamers it's more 50/50. I simply forfeit and restart the battle over and over until the pet I have starting is matched up with the pet I want it to counter.

For my favored Undead, any will work as long as it's max/higher level than the tamer you are battling. I personally use Scourged Whelpling just because it's my 25. However, for some of the lower level tamers (e.g. the 3-9 bracket) I might pick a random pet that's not max level simply because it takes ages for them to kill the pet due to the misses and dodges.
I think you forgot the tamer in Durotar, Kunta i think is his name, level 2 pets.
OP, I don't understand. I just tracked down a pet tamer, and I can't battle him again. (The one in Westfalls). I fought him ages ago, and when I seen this post about grinding your pets faster. I obviously jumped at it.
As I understand it, you're only supposed to be able to battle the final trainer for each continent more than once.
There were two bugs here. One that let people battle trainers more than once, and another one that kept some people from getting the dailies.
Dailies only unlock once you have defeated all the Battle Masters of that continent. Not by defeating one Master. You need to plow through Eastern Kingdoms, Kalimador, Outland, Northrend, and Pandaria to unlock all the dailies.
Ahh, I know why now. I didn't finish the quest, that's why. heehee:)
IDK, unless I happen to be right by a trainer I don't bother. The travel time and fight difficulties make the dailies not worth it.
great post, ty

Keep in mind, due to them being account quests, you can just park alts at them. Log on, battle a pet and log out. Although I will say I haven't done this personally but plan too, although I don't see why it wouldn't work.
I would really like them to add xp to all the daily quest to help encourage people(I mean me) to go out and do them. The first three either give xp at 89 or lower or double gold. The rest give the same one level of gold which should be doubled/have xp added depending on level.
Howdy , thanks for the great list

one thing tho! Zangarmarsh has two r's.

/way Zangarmash 17.2 50.4 L21 Ras'an (magic/flying/humanoid)
love this post
Thank you for this post!
Actually, as of this year, your lower pet can perform ONE action and even if it misses still counts and get full exp. You don't have to put it into battle after your other pet is finishing the opposing team.
