Strong Pet Trap?

So I just got the achieve for catching 50 pets in battle, which is supposed to reward you with what I assume to be an upgraded trap? But the tooltip doesn't seem to indicate anything and, although I can't say I was paying particular attention to before and after, but the animations and graphics all seem the same. Is it bugged? Anybody else notice nothing, or am I just crazy?

The tooltip doesn't change. Allegedly your traps get better, but there's no real way to prove it.

Pretty sure it's bugged. Saw a blue post that said it's supposed to update the tooltip and graphic.

Good to know that it's a bug and not intended to be the same as the first trap we get. I was wandering about this my self. Thanks for letting me know.

they seem to have taken the reward out of the achievement with their hotfix instead of fixing it..

I was wondering that. Just got to 90 a bit ago and went to do pet battles next, but couldn't remember where this reward came from, nor find it listed in the achieves.

Yeah, it's bugged. The new "stronger trap" is supposed to look like this:

It's a picture of a pokeball, he's trying to be funny.


Oh ok. Because it wasn't even showing a pokeball. It was showing a cross with the words No Leech on it.

Does anyone know what the strond trap is supposed to look like? and the stronger trap? I hope it's not this small wooden thing I've been using to catch dragons, minfernals and onyxias brood with.

We need something with metal, and rivets, and perhaps a line of MnM's leading up to it.

I also blew through the capture quests; finished Going to Need More Traps on the first day, and got to Zen Pet Hunter on 10/1/2012. Never got a single trap upgrade. (My tool tip still says +20% per failed attempt)

My buddy, who went at a moderate pace, just finished Going to Need More Traps today, and got the Strong Trap (+25% per attempt). So it seems like they intended us to have the upgrades, but that it was bugged until recently.

Blizz... please let us know how to enable this upgrade... it's getting really hard to trap the higher lvl pets with the old starter trap!

Bump for this. Trying to catch lvl 24s is almost impossible when the starter trap misses 6 or 7 times. Especially against spiders and frogs when they keep healing as it gives them plenty of time to eat through your roster.

Yes, it is incredibly frustrating.

However, I have found my little sporling humanoid pet (a rare) was able to solo pretty much all of the lvl 23-24 mobs I've come across so far. It still sucks to have the trap fail so often, but that lil guy has enough healing spells to both burn down and out heal most any critter.

I wonder if this bug is somehow related to my pets not showing up in armory?
