Anyone know how to complete this achievement as Alliance? I can't get the horde tamers on the list to fight me. Should I try calling them a dirty name? Please help.

Since Pet battles are account bound, you might want to try rolling a horde (gross, I know). I suggest just making a DK.

Yes, it's designed for players to use characters on both sides. Almost impossible for an Alliance character to do Big City Pet Brawlin' - Horde. Trivial for a Horde character.
And, as you pointed out, totally impossible for an Alliance character to battle the Horde Tamers.

I just switched over trying to do them there and my horde already had them done, back to alliance... nothing there.

I had no problems just be aware of what your doing find pets that are behind buildings and things like that.

... but that being said, Taming Kalimdor you HAVE to have a horde toon. I made a DK and it took me all of maybe three hours the longest part was the starting zone quests and thats with me goofing off. Dont do a low level toon you wont have the flight points and it will take forever.

what if weve already MAXED our toons, and our DK IS ally.... this systems is hosed! I am on an RP SERVER, i play ALLIANCE for a reason. i shouldnt have to make a horde toon just to complete an acheive like this. Not to mention, it wouldnt work anyways, my level 6 horde toon that i DID have for AH pet transfers, shows it as complete, so i CANT pick up the quests anyways! And this is the same case for MANY people.... soooooooo frustrating.

did you get the acheivement Taming The Eastern Kingdoms and Taming Kalimdor....that is what is in question.

ive been playing since vanilla, and have ONE lvl 85 toon (yes ill level her eventually) and NO OTHERS.... i found what i enjoy and do it well. Everyone plays differently. I have many low level bank alts, and i do a LOT on the AH..... but when it comes to the acheivements for this Pet Battle system, it shouldnt matter WHAT someones playstyle is.

Diddnt they say over and over again that they wanted to appeal to a wider audience and make things simpler? HOW does this make things appealing for those of us who have been with them ALL ALONG.

You have to pick up the quest as horde, and grab each quest with the same character. I used one of my twinks, and just switched to my main for the completion (I wanted her to get the goodie bags :D) It's a pain in the butt, but it worked, which was good enough for me.

You can make the DK on a random server. It doesn't have to be your main server.

Of course, that doesn't actually help with the bugs. I'm having a slightly different issue.

I completed the Kalemdor achievement on this character, and also did the EK trainers I had access to. I got the Kalemdor acheivement, but not the EK one, which makes sense.

So, I hop onto an Alliance toon to do the lower level EK trainers. The trainer in stormwind has the starting quest for me (yay!) Strangly enough, the Outland quest is also available, despite being currently in my quest log. Huh? (I don't pick it up.)

So, I'm going through the quests to fight the trainers and decide to check my achievement progress. I'm not seeing the EK one in my incomplete list, but I am seeing the Kalimdor one as incomplete. (Looking at the tracking shows all of the objectives complete.)

Okay, I then find the EK achievement with my completed achievements, despite still needing ~3 trainers. However, all of the progress shows as complete, showing trainers complete that I most definitely have not done. I'm still able to continue the training quest chain, and so I finish it up. The trainer in Stormwind now offers both the higher level EK and Kalimdor quests (as well as the previously mentioned Outland quest) despite the fact they've been completed on this character.

Logging back onto this character and the achievement situation is reversed. Both show all objectives as complete, but only the Kalimdor is listed as complete, not the EK.

Needless to say, things are a bit wonky right now.
