Pet Battles Hotfixes - Updated 10/11/12
I'm fighting a Desert Spider with an Alpine Chipmunk. I used Nut Barrage (Hurls nuts at the enemy, dealing 116 Critter damage.) but in the combat log it says "Nut Barrage dealt 36 damage ... missed ... dealt 40 damage" all in the same round. The tooltip should read "Hurls 3 nuts at the enemy, dealing 36 Critter damage each. This ability has a high chance to miss."
I'm fighting a Toad with a Chicken. I used Egg Barrage (Hurls eggs at the enemy, dealing 63 Critter damage.) but in the combat log it says "Egg Barrage missed ... missed ... missed ... dealt 56 damage" all in the same round. The tooltip should read "Hurls 4 eggs at the enemy, dealing 63 Critter damage each. This ability has a high chance to miss."
Interestingly, Nut Barrage and Egg Barrage use a different system than Moth Ball (I think that's what it's called) in that the speed reduction of the Moth Ball attack is calculated like a regular attack, but the round over round Nut/Egg Barrage is not, it just is automatically applied. I feel that Moth Ball should automatically apply their round over round effect, just like Nut/Egg Barrage does.
If you're fighting a wild pet battle, but get interrupted by a mob attacking you, your pets health remain at whatever damaged state they were when you were forced out of the battle, but the wild pets health goes back to full. I know this is just like in regular combat, but in regular combat you can heal / bandage / etc. while in pet battles Revive Battle Pets is on an 8 minute cooldown (or you have to fly to the local 'healer' or use a Battle Pet Bandage). It should return your pets to the health they were at the start of combat (or fully heal them) if you get interrupted by a mob attacking you.
I'm trying to capture a level 12 Rare Snake. In round 7 I used Strong Trap (failed). In round 9 I used Strong Trap (failed). In round 10 I used Strong Trap (failed). In round 11 I used Strong Trap (failed). In round 12 I used Strong Trap (success). Does that mean that the base was 0%? Having an idea of the base chance of whether or not a trap would work would be nice. Further, if a target burrows, puts up a cocoon, gets a 100% dodge buff, does that count into whether or not they will be captured?
I'm using Warbot and I used Extra Plating (The user equips additional plating reducing all damage taken by 50% for 2 turns.) which applied Extra Plating in round 2. Extra Plating faded in round 5 (so it was active for 4 turns from round 2 through round 5).
I'm fighting a Rattlesnake with a Snake. In round 6 the rattlesnake used Burrow to apply Underground. In round 7 I used Burrow to apply Underground to my snake. Despite the description "Burrow under the ground, becoming unattackable for one round" the rattlesnake did 178 damage to my snake before Underground faded from my snake.
I believe that is intended on PvP servers, but I thought they mentioned that if you were in a Pet Battle you would come out of it with a shield for several seconds to let you get your bearings. I agree, though, that having Pet Battles interruptible by randomly wandering PvE Mobs or drected PvP toons are both irritating.11/07/2012 05:33 PMPosted by Quinzapthis may have been mentioned but i hate it when i do pet battles my toon is out in the open and i had hordes just gank me when i do my battles just really annoyin

Q: Is there going to be a noticeable difference in the experience for players earning Pet Battles levels and finding new pets on PvP realms, as opposed to normal realms?
CS: You’re definitely more vulnerable to attack while doing Pet Battles on a PvP realm, but we’ve accounted for that. If you’re in the Pet Battles UI when an enemy player hits you, you get a shield that absorbs damage for three seconds. You have time to come out of the Pet Battle and take care of business with the other player, and we respawn your pet for you, so you don’t lose it. On PvP realms, we made sure that you can get attacked during Pet Battles, because we didn’t want the system to be an escape from that vulnerability.
The Pet Bombling's mine field doesn't go off if the Bombling dies. No where does it say that it should.
It sure stays up for the entirety of the fight even after he's dead but it never goes off even when the opponent switches mid-battle. It SHOULD go off.
Focus Chi really needs another round cooldown for the Monk. As it is now, It's Focus Chi...Jab...and you're pretty much dead if not really really dead. Then it's just rinse and repeat with your others. To beat him you have to be lucky with a stun or two. I'm not looking to gut him, just either add a round cooldown or have the bonus damage smaller. It's too nuk-ey.
Also have issues with pet bombing, sometimes it doesn't go off. Putting multiple bombs onto the field just breaks existing bombs.

The frog is an Aquatic, which take 25% less damage from damage over time attacks.
Good catch, thank you.11/15/2012 09:37 AMPosted by UngorojoeThe frog is an Aquatic, which take 25% less damage from damage over time attacks.
I am fighting a Mei Li Sparkler with a Rock Viper. I used Poison Fang (Instantly deals 141 Beast damage and deals 71 additional Elemental damage per round for 5 rounds) but the applied Poisoned is only lasting two rounds (the round it is applied and the round following that). I then switched to a Bandicoon Kit and used that Poison Fang and it had the same effect (2 round duration). I killed the Sparkler then an Amethyst Spiderling then swapped in and the same thing happened (2 round duration on Poison Fang). I finished that battle and started a new one and the same thing happened. Using a Crunchy Scorpion, I used Sting and its duration was normal.
When a PVE Pet Battle pet is the last one alive and dies while killing your active pet, you are ported out of your battle and not awarded a win.
Example. I had a DoT on an opponent pet, it went first in the turn, killed my active pet (with two pets remaining alive), died from the DoT and then POOF! I was out in the world with no exp, a dead pet and 2 pets with low health.
11/22/2012 12:21 AMPosted by ZhüI'm i the only one who noticed some pet i caugh does not show up in my achievement list? i saw people with Pandaria Safari, so i know it's possible, but i got Feverbite Hatchling, Shrine Fly and Emperor Carb (all uncommon quality and up) and they still say i don't have them....any clue what i'm doing wrong?
Nothing - it's a UI display glitch. When you get the rest of the pets for Pandaria Safari, you'll get the achievement.
11/10/2012 10:24 AMPosted by MisteltoeAs of today after the reset, all of my pet achievements that were in progress reset. I was close to the achievement for 400 unique pets. Now I am at zero. I have no credit for pets caught in various zones. Anything that was partially completed is now reset at zero. Is anyone else experiencing this?
i have been but it seems to fix itself after exiting the game and logging back in
I have tried deleting my WTF, Cache and Interface. Tried to capture pets with a fresh interface (no addons at all) I have tried in Hyjel and Valley of the four winds, and always get the same thing.
I have followed directions given to me by the blizzard team when they responded to my ticket. This issue is not resolved. Any word on if anyone else is having this issue and when it might be fixed?
