THEN WHY DID YOU EVEN SPAWN HERE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Blizzard, can we please get a fix for this. It's just frustrating looking for pets and being unable to battle one just because it spawned too close to a tree, or a couple of rocks, or a wall.

Agree this is very annoying.

A few tricks I learned that often helps:

Bind a key to "interact" and run circles around the pet while spamming the key. Sometimes this works on its own.

Perform a hostile effect or taunt that does 0 damage (I use fairie fire on a druid) and chase it around until the combat drops (or shadowmeld), then spam interact before it runs back to the obstructed area.

Certainly not foolproof but I'd estimate I have 70-75% success.

I noticed this for the first time last night :O I just figured I was doing it wrong since I'm still a pet battle noobie ;p I just ran around the Frog in circles spamming the guy. He eventually let me fight him :)

I try that but, oy, it's just such a hassle. Granted, it's not as bad as it was on the Beta (in Elwynn Forest there was a rat that spawned in a barn on one of the farms, in the middle, with plenty of room, and it STILL came up with Pet Battle Area is Obstructed) but it's still annoying. Especially when it's a pet I don't have.

Rather creative solution.

So has anyone even successfully initiated a pet battle in the UC throne room?

As far as I've noticed the entire hall + room is a "no-battle" zone.

I just kill the pet in the obstructed area. They will battle my pets, or they will face me! There is no obstructed arena that can protect them from my wrath.

The Summit Kids were an especially annoying pet to battle and capture. Seemed that better than half of them were on a slope with no room to accommodate a pet battle.

Then there's the fact that the blood knight pet-battle master in Outland stands under a rock where I can't initiate combat with him. It's like Blizzard's trolling me.

This has happened to me a grand total of 1 time, and I moved over a little and then it was fine... Clearly, this is a major problem.

You've met the problem once. Congrats.

The rest of us aren't so lucky. Spawning pets in areas where it's impossible to initiate battles with them happens to be an actual problem. But I thank you for your wonderful contribution to the thread.

First off as a player why do I have to figure out which way to point to have a battle. Why place pet in locations that you can't access in a battle pet mode. Why not when you select the pet to fight/battle move it to an arena location or something...solves obstruction. How much do I get paid for that because obviously the programers aren't worth it.

As if they always show pretty pet battles when they're unobstructed. You're allowed to clip through a tree or whatever, i don't mind.

"I do one of two things, when this happens. get right on top of the pet I am trying to battle. If that fails, I just kill it, and let it re-spawn at another spot."

Two years on, and it's the same old crap.

"The Pet Battle Area is Obstructed"

Really frustrating, in some cases, Blizzard.

I manage to encounter this every time I do the Erris daily. I inevitably try to initiate the battle while slightly to the side of her, and it always gives me this message. Move 1/2 an inch to the left and it's good. Mildly annoying.
