Casting cyclone from moonkin hatchling seems to freeze the battle or pause it in place for a good 40seconds you guys aware? posted this to Zarhym on twitter and told me to mention it here.

NOT FIXED 100% if you want my opinion, it is bs to attack first round and not be able to attack again till round 11-13 or your own pet is dead because the computer/AI just wants to attack and attack and attack.

Never in BETA was I able to attack more than 2 or 3 times at the most EVER and you are telling me that this is FIXED? Yea well I got screen shots of my pet battle tab, feel free to email me and I will show you twice that you are lying or the bugs are back.

When this happens the enemy pet has over 1500 haste (hover over its tooltip). I have a couple of screenshots where this happened to prove it if it would help blizz?

When fighting a mechanopeep from that trainer at the argent tourny my gnome will not reanimate after it dies.

Lastly allot of my achievements are bugged/not recognised both ingame and in the armory.

1) Another bug, Dazzling dance is only giving a 25% team speed bonus rather than the 50% listed.

2) The Cyclone ability of pets like Tiny Twister and Sea Gull frequently bugs out and gets stuck on the active pet being attacked. It takes a few minutes before it clears and the battle can continue- even if you try to forfeit.


2) The Blighthawks in Andorhal in Western Plaguelands were at first appearing on the map but not able to be seen; now, they appear to be floating in the air in a seated position.

3) Numerous Little Black Rams in Loch Modan are placed in such a way on mountaintops that they are just not able to be engaged in battle due to terrian issues.
I've seen all of these as well.

As you continue to take on Azeroth’s ferocious critters, please don’t hesitate to let us know if you encounter any issues, specifically with inputs being skipped.

My Devouring Maggot now shows up in my pet journal... but after totaling up all of my mini-pets and comparing them to my achievements, I have come to the conclusion that it is not counted towards my total number of unique mini-pets.

We have a quick update about the Pet Battles achievements you guys have been great in reporting: Cory Stockton has just announced that they've located what was causing the issue and it has been hotfixed. They should be functioning correctly now across both factions.

Thank you for the update, Laurianna. I've just been informed that this is being looked into now.

I just tried to learn the Jade Crane Chick on my new Panda, and she can't learn it. The trainer tells me that I need to learn Pet Battle Training, but he won't teach me since I already learned it on my Druid here. If I check the "Already Known" option on the trainer, sure enough it lists the P.B.Training as already known. :( Sad panda.

same issue here. This bug exists too long, submit a ticket before and they said it would be fixed soon. well, I waited and checked every day, not fixed yet :(

This most recent hot fix seems to have caused an issue with progressing on those achievements. For example I had defeated all the Kalimdor pet trainers and once the hot fix was applied I no longer have any credit for beating any of the listed trainers. At the same time I've been working on "Taming Outland" and I find that the pet trainers listed there are not being credited either as I defeat them

A bug has been fixed that caused turn inputs to sometimes be skipped, causing only one pet to take action that turn

Thank you OMG I can do pet battles without ripping out my hair again.
You rock blizz. Now fix engineering ;D

I consistently run into "mule deer" as a secondary wild pet in my pet battles out in Stonetalon Mountains when fighting against coral snakes and rabid nut varmints.

It's always unable to be captured--more importantly, the mule deer is not listed in the pet journal at this time, either.

Edit: Not always poor quality after all. Just ran across an uncommon quality. I have screenshots if they're needed, although I think screenshots aren't allowed? Regardless, THIS IS VERY STRANGE. And also sad. If I come across a rare mule deer and can't capture... :'(

Edit2: Went to Desolace after getting bored of seeing mule deer I couldn't catch... and... now I'm getting various-quality gazelle as my secondaries!

Not gazelle fawn, mind, but gazelle. Like the mule deer, these gazelle are also not in the pet battle journals, and cannot be captured.

I'm beginning to think that this might be some strange bug with all the other critters that have yet to make it in as actual wild (capturable) pets.

My roommate says I'm being haunted by WoW's version of missingnos. I laughed.

I defeated the horde pet tamers for the achi "Taming Kalimdor" and it gave me the achievement (without having to defeat the ally ones). However when I did the same for the EK, the Taming Eastern Kingdoms wasn't rewarded.

Not sure if this has been asked - haven't read all 7 pages.

Would it be possible to either add a sort option to sort pets by level, or add a filter like level >1, level >5, etc. This would be a nice QOL improvement for those leveling multiple pets - especially for those going for different families.

Other than that thoroughly enjoying pet battles.

YES. This is really needed.

The pet battle achievements are beyond buggy. I have finished "Taming Kalimdor". However, it is not unlocked and I don't have points for having earned it. It does, however, light up under the "Taming Azeroth" meta, despite not actually being unlocked.

This is driving me crazy.

Worse, I cannot finish "Eastern Kingdoms Safari" because I'm not getting credit for catching Crimson Moth pets in Stranglethorn Vale. This particular pet was previously hotfixed for not being credited properly. I have caught the pet both before AND after the hotfix. And I still don't have credit for having caught one. This prevents me from finishing Eastern Kingdoms Safari and the World Safari meta.

Fix it. The 4+ days waiting time on tickets is absurd, btw.

When will the dailies become available? I just logged on and the eastern kingdom tamers that I've done once still aren't offering me a daily quest to do. Will it require me to wait until tomorrow's reset? I really hope this has been fixed because it's the only way I see leveling multiple sets of pets being reasonable. Thanks!

They seriously need to fix the Taming Eastern Kingdoms achievement, unless its ment to have to be completed by both factions.
