Nov 16 Which Pets to Level to Complete Achievements EDIT: I have added a list of "very good pets I did not use" based on other posts. I also added some info on optimized breeds where applicable, but these optimized breeds are not required for someone just looking to finish off the achieves. This is a pet list for anyone looking to complete all of the pet battle achievements efficiently (i.e. do the bare minimum). There are a million ways to do this, but this was how I, after wasting time on many useless pets, did it. I hope it is helpful for all the beginners out there. No TCG or store pets are needed, and while some of these aren't easy to obtain (as some have commented), you will need to do an equal amount of work to get by without them IMO. With this list, it is possible to complete all of the major "PVE" pet battle achievements - there is no simple formula for PVP, but many of these pets are excellent in PVP as well. I will not go into detail on what each pet is used for, but if you follow many of the popular guides out there, you will find that most pets on those lists can be substituted for those on my list. First, a few helpful tips: All of the pet trainers in Pandaria can be defeated with only an Emeral Proto-Whelp and Anubisath Idol, making this route very efficient for leveling pets - even if you have minimal level 25's. Someone has posted the details for each fight to wowhead. Always complete your garrison menagerie dailies. These will provide you with a constant stream of tokens to increase the quality/levels on pets you need. Start running old raids to get "raiding with leashes" achievement asap - you will need Anubisath Idol and Chrominius for many reasons, and it may take several weeks to get the drops. Howl Bomb: It is a method of killing extremely high-hp single enemies. It can be implemented several ways (and most guides will help you with this), but the core pets are a Pandaren Water Spirit and Chrominius, supplemented by either the Darkmoon Zepplin (celestial tournament) or Unborn Val'kyr (outside tournament).The List: So here is the list, sorted by: 1) what I consider to be my go-to pets (used daily), 2) which ones I use regularly (~weekly) and 3) others I used infrequently or for gimmicky fights (e.g. to complete "An Awfully Big Adventure"). 1) Core Pets (9 total) Anubisath Idol Emerald Proto-Whelp Chrominius Pandaren Water Spirit Clockwork Gnome Darkmoon Zepplin Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling Any Snail (Rapana Whelk is best) Terrible Turnip (weakening blow cannot kill, so it's perfect for collecting low-level pets)2) Used Often (9 total) Any Moth w/ alpha strike, cocoon strike, and moth dust (P/P Yellow Moth is best) Eternal Strider (or equivalent, P/S breed best) Darkmoon Tonk Any Spider w/ strike, brittle webbing, and leech life Any Frog w/ water jet, cleansing rain, swarm of flies, and frog kiss (S/S Leopard Tree Frog or a P/P Yellow-Bellied Bullfrog are best) Nexus Whelpling Scourged Whelpling Stinker (used to heal in celestial tournament) Unborn Val'kyr3) Used Infrequently (17 total) Adder (this is a great first lvl25 - high speed + counters critters) Amethyst Shale Hatching Blighthawk Chi-chi Core Hound Pup Elekk Plushie Fel Flame Flayer Youngling Kun-Lai Runt Lofty Libram Mud Jumper/Swamp Croaker Nether Faerie Dragon Prairie Dog Sea Gull Spawn of Onyxia Sporeling Sprout Tiny Snowman A second Moth (I've even used 3) A second Frog (I've even used 3) A second Spider4) Other very strong pets (that I never needed): Gilnean Raven Crow Xu-Fu Iron Starlette Feline Familiar S/S Rabbit P/P Emporer Crab H/H Spirit Crab Teroclaw Hatchling Alpine Foxling Lil' Bling Ghostly Skull Ghastly Kid Zalandari Raptors Electrified RazortoothJeack22 Nov 16

1h Change minimap to show only missing pets I am currently using Pet Tracker and being able to filter the world map to show only missing battle pets is very convenient. it's an awesome mod btw, good job dev. I've been unable to find a way to make Pet Tracker or another mod do the same thing for the minimap. If I track pets on the minimap it will show all pets that are within range on my minimap but I'd like to change it to only pets i'm missing - anyone know of a mod that will do that?Zulraka4 1h
1h Minfernal For all those wanting a minfernal, there is 1 up on Tichondrius. It's just south of Whisperwind Grove.Missymøø0 1h
6h Duel funsies To whomever is participating in the healing duel with me right now, I hope you're having as much fun as I am. :DAlkavar4 6h
6h Pet Battlestones drop rate Seems like every other time i do a pet battle, a stone drops that lets me increase quality of the pet. I don't remember ever getting these before--what changed?Shendralar3 6h
6h Thank you pet people Without you guys buying my pets for obscene amounts of gold, I would have to pay actual money for my sub. Thanks!Paagan2 6h
6h DK and Monk pets in 7.2 Please take a look at this post in the 7.2 forums in regard to these new class pets. If we speak out now the devs. might realize how excessive the requirements for these new pets are. As a collector it makes me cringe. Pet battle people are usually pretty polite and don't say a lot but this time I think it would help to let Blizzard know our feeling and ideas about this subject. Take a few minutes or even less to leave your feedback on that post. Thank you for your time.Rexann24 6h
14h Azsuna Specimens - Needs more specimens Every time I try to do this WQ there are never any battleable felspiders around. There are somehow plenty of non-battleable ones (I've seen at least a dozen in the past few minutes here), but I can never find any that can be fought. This is the only WQ I've seen so far that has this problem, plz halp!Mjollner1 14h
14h Falcosaur quest chains Just found out that my other level 110 alts can pick up the "Next" quest so you can bypass the time gate with multiple charactersZunde97 14h
1d Members of the 800+ Unique pets club!!! Post if you have 800+ Unique pets! *you can verify the amount of unique one you have in your armory* I'm at 810 so far with about 160x that are lv25! P.S.: If Blizzard could add a new 800+ pets achievement (and maybe a 100+ lv25 one) that would be awesome! 600 pets achiv is so yesterday :PLillybow55 1d
1d Master pet trainers..legion well, I wanted to start doing all those pet battles in legion. (the ones that you have to fight 12 master trainers with all the same pets.) But you cant just go up to them and initiate a battle right? wont let you talk to them, unless its a world quest? and if that's the case...that's 120 random different battles that could appear anywhere...wont that take like a year? if not longer? because of the random chances of many repeats? its not like you cant just to up each master trainer and do 12 fights in an afternoon...right? or am I way wrong in how this works? I have to wait until the trainer becomes a world quest to attempt to fight him/her again?Neflan11 1d
1d No Falcosaur Credit This is beyond annoying. Do WQ pet battle with Snowfeather and/or Direbeak Hatchling. Win! No credit. Do same with fighting pet summoned. Win! No credit. Switch alts (per suggestion in another post) but no credit shows. I think I have tried with the falcosaur as first pet (and also soloing). No credit. Am I missing something or is this a buggy as all get out?Queuequeue5 1d
2d Where are the Pet Masters of Legion? In every region so far there was an achievement 'Taming Kalimdor'' ''Taming Eastern Kingdoms'' etc where you had to defeat the pet masters but in Broken Isles i dont see any achievement of that kind and i also dont see any pet master marks on the map does it mean that there are are not pet masters in Broken Isles?Spongebobt6 2d
2d Snowblind in peril, millitary action needed To: Stormpike General Vanndar From: Field Marshal Tifany Not that I'm a pet collector or a Pet Battle specialist, in fact I prefer the battlefield, the pets I have are not very strong and my sweet one is my Lifelike Toad because it was a gift from a friend I met on the battlefield. Still, since a very long time I'm looking forward to adopt a harpy from the Alterac Valley, but here's the problem, to this day no Snowblind youngling has been seen. I have two theory on this matter: The first is that the youngling are too small to fish, these innocent little winged being are dragged in the bottom of the lake by the savage beast known as ''salmon'' and die drown, but not before an unspeakable pain due to the extremely cold water. The second theory isn't pretty, here I need all your attention, Drek must have hired some goblin engineer to build a submarine which is patrolling the lake, that could explain the reason why there's no harpy flying over the water I got a Witchwing youngling in the northern area of the Barrens but it's not the same thing. This matriarchy is doing good things, like showing their generosity to the Horde's caravan supplies, breeding with their guest male orcs who have the opportunity to feed the nest to return the favor. The Snowblind harpy from Alterac Valley is a great candidate to add in a pet collection, their unmatched kindness knows no equal. Over the years, alliance members who went fishing to the unfrozen lake have shared a particular relationship with these harpies, if they don't want to talk about their experience it's because... just because (sometimes things can be that simple) Masters in the fishing pole crafting, their generous nature push them to put their piece of art close from their cavern's entrance and around the lake, they might be too shy to open a store, and either, too generous to sell them. Orphan, lost or maybe just very friendly, the Snowblind youngling live to cause harmony and harpiness. This is as a ''Conservationist'' that I urge the Stormpike administration to send a expedition to the unfrozen lake south of Dun Baldar in order to save these adorable winged babies from a horrible death. As an officer and a soldier, I'm forced to ask you to mobilize some veteran dwarven demolition squad with a massive amount of gunpowder to blow up the lake. Note: I already contracted a talentuous Gilnean scribe to map the area, he drew it while in worgen form and the lake looks already exploded, a pure beauty. Awaiting command, Field Marshal TifanyTifany2 2d
2d PVP Counter Thread Just a wee bit a help for people new to the PVP scene and who find themselves constantly running headlong into tough, stalwart teams who appear, from a novice's perspective, to have no weaknesses or flaws. Whether it's the pet battle weekly, leveling an alt thru pet PVP, the 250 win achievement or even the vaunted 5k. (Though this "guide" isn't for you latter folk) Don't give up! Although not always an easy task, even with a counter, EVERY team can be beaten. There are a plethora of threads/guides out there giving outstanding advice on how exactly to hand a trainer his own !@#$. And thank you to everyone who takes the time to put those together. (Jere is a genius btw) But when it comes to PVP and surmounting the "top tier" mountain we run into frequently, there seems to be a bit of a void for people in search of answers or direction. Disco and others have shared some amazing teams in the past years and you can find people like him and Hiru doing their thing on youtube anytime, which I recommend. This, however, is more of a simpler thread. I jotted down the "best" (I know that's subjective) PVP pets in the game right now and then gave three or four of the best counters to said pet. Again, pretty simple. I just wish dearly I would've had something like this when I first started down the 5k road. The headache it would've saved me. I know the feeling of grasping at straws and losing 5-6 battles straight before giving up and logging out back in those early days. I want to help those people out. The more people in the queue and the more people having fun battling each other, the better. Full disclosure: I'm no pro. That's the truth. I'm not even at 4K wins and I skipped MoP entirely. But I love PVPing, hold a steady 75% win rate and know which rocks beat which scissors handily. Lastly, I want to keep this list updated. The meta is always changing and I want this list to reflect that. So, with that being said, input and (respectful) opinions are very much desired!Brawler3 2d
3d Giraffe Calf spawn-rate intended? It appears that it sometimes spawn with packs of roaming Barrens Giraffes, which are pretty rare to begin with because they seem to share spawn points with other wild life. With cross-realm zone added on top of that, it makes the little guy unusually rare. In 3 days, I've seen one in total and it... well, it didn't go the way I had hoped. I've heard plenty of people saying you should look for it immediately after a reset, but that strikes me as a terribly specific way of farming a battle pet. Is it intentional for this pet to be such a rare and unpredictable spawn, and if so why this one in particular? Every other area I've visited so far seems to have a good amount of every battle pet so you can hunt for an uncommon/rare quality, but with this one it's a challenge to even see one.Fabulo36 3d
4d Fluxfire Feline Anyone seen a Fluxfire Feline lately? I've been looking for a while and haven't found any.Vailyn5 4d
5d Green Paw icon missing Hello, I cannot figure out how to pet battle any more. I'm trying to battle pets in the wild but when I hover over them, the green paw icon is missing. I've turned the mini map option on too. I've also disabled all addons and the problem persists. What am I missing? Thanks!Bacstab3 5d
6d Mana Tap battle pets I haven't seen any useful info on this but anyone know if the essence/seed/font of mana battle pets are actually obtainable? They are listed as obtainable battle pets from "achievement" on wowhead but no idea what that really means... I have battled them in suramar whenever they are up wondering if it is a rare drop after the fight (like a rare battle stone) but no luck. Just curious, haven't seen any info that they are, or are not yet, obtainable. Perhaps I am just bored after finishing FF, and I dont feel like leveling the rest of my lowbie pets (knock out a few dozen at a time when squirt appears).Dyngdawng4 6d

Feb 20 Minfernals Blizzard, I have a job, I come home, I have stuff I have to do with my Character, I'd like to be able to fly in the Broken Isle, etc.. I don't want to wait for ever and ever and ever and ever for a Minfernal to spawn. It sounds like the re-spawn on Tuesdays after you've restarted the realms. I get home from work and the Minfernals are all ready farmed out by other people. It's ridiculous to spend an inordinate amount of time waiting, hoping that a pet will spawn. Please acknowledge that you have people who pay to play this game who don't have access to it during the work week and allow you game mechanisms to take that into account.Lincöln16 Feb 20
Feb 20 Basset Hound Just thought this should be a pet in the game. A dopy pet that drools on target for X damage.Bullrita6 Feb 20
Feb 19 Triple Elekk Plushie teams I keep seeing triple Elekk Plushie teams. Do people do this hoping people will just quit for the no time to heal achieve? Shouldn't be allowed.Rhonstifor19 Feb 19
Feb 17 All Draenor tamers with only these 2 pets! 2 Pets, 1 Carry A Sprite Darter Hatchling and Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling are all you need to consistently beat each of the 6 Draenor Grand Master Pet Tamers and carry a pet through each of the fights for leveling purposes. Yes, I know there are some faster strategies with other pets on some fights. I did this for my own amusement as I enjoy challenging myself with such trivial things. It DOES however provide a fantastic starting point for any new battle pet trainers to level their first couple of pets that will allow them to accomplish a whole lot. Whether you enjoy brainlessly flying to each tamer without having to edit your pet team or you're looking for that great first team, look no further. You will need rare, level 25 versions of each of the two pets. The Dragonling should be cheap-ish and is crafted by engineers. The Darter might cost you a pretty penny on the AH but she is worth it... this is your Draenor superstar pet. If you are starting your carry pet from level 1, I strongly suggest you tackle them in the order below as they consistently need to soak up more damage in each case. Only Tarr and Cymre will put real stress on your carry pet but with a little planning, it should work out. A pet being carried from level 1 through all 6 tamers will be level 25 when you are finished, providing you are wearing your Safari Hat buff the entire time. Crits from either your team or the enemy team could put the rotation out of whack, be prepared to restart some fights due to RNG, sorry. Taralune's moths in particular seem to be crit-happy.Madmartigan86 Feb 17
Feb 17 Ironbound Proto Whelp Bugged/Broken Ironbound Proto Whelp's ability "Ironskin", at level 25, is supposed to block up to 70 damage from each attack. I've just battled 3 of these in a row, and this ability is actually blocking upwards of 210 damage. PLEASE FIX.Emille3 Feb 17
Feb 17 Token Change and Primal Flamesaber The token change and HoTS mount If you don't peruse the general forums, the change where wow tokens can either buy game time or battle net balance went through today. Currently tokens are selling as fast as people list them so the price is spiking. Also, there's a pretty sweet new mount, Primal Flamesaber) being offered on HoTS for playing 15 games with a friend. I figure most of us probably have heros from getting Graves ;) Edit: better linkVhale13 Feb 17
Feb 17 Deathwatch Hatchling Are there any guild's out there from Dentarg/Whisperwind that have completed the Challenges Warlords: Gold achievement and are willing to throw a guild invite to one of my alts? I will pay you back by tossing a bunch of random pets in your guild bank as a thank you. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. Please whisper "Grayworm" in-game or leave a post here and I will contact you.Grayworm4 Feb 17

Feb 16 Paradox Spirit When will this pet be available? I just noticed it in the pet journal. It appears to be sold for 2200 Timewalking Badges; but the Timewalking Cataclysm vendor, Kiatke, isn't selling it at this time.Elunatic3 Feb 16
Feb 16 Howl..... Issue? The tool tip states it last two rounds, but it does not. 1). NPC Pet turn. 2). I cast Howl. Buff shows (Increase damage by 100% - 2 Rounds. 3) NPC Pet turn. 4). My Turn, doesn't matter what move I use, once it is completed the Howl buff is removed from the NPC pet. Am I missing something?Fenril5 Feb 16
Feb 16 Forbidden names So... it is forbidden to call my pet Nintendo but I may call it Apple..... why? Joke apart, there are many many many forbidden names.... I can't name my pet because most of the names I think of are forbidden... (and they do not contain mature language)Sãcajawea10 Feb 16
Feb 15 Why anonymous? I've never seen a good reason why pvp pet battles are anonymous. If someone harasses you over a pet battle, you can report them and/or ignore them. It could be a great opportunity to make a friend in game or even in real life. These are just my thoughts. Some assembly required. Offers may vary. Consult your doctor if you have a pet battle that lasts more than 100 rounds. EDIT: Downvotes for asking an honest question. Gotta love this community. Thanks for all the sincere replies. Those are appreciated.Volkard25 Feb 15
Feb 15 Journey to 5K Achievement Where are you at on your journey to 5K achievement? I am at 3015 wins. My biggest joy in the achievement quest (besides winning) is making my own successful teams. My meta is varied, some days it is triple Ironstarrlets, triple Nexus Whelps, T-Claws, F. Imps, Disco's Teams , and Sunny Day teams. My win percentage is a few points over 500, so every battle is epic. I don't use T-Claws, F. Imps or Graves, but I do use Bone Serpent and Ore Eater. The last time I used Magic Crawdad was on 4/17/16. I went 396 rounds (not proud of this) against a Puddle Terror, Son of Sethe and Ruby Droplet. It would be fun to hear where you are at and any stories you want to share.Senatorjones9 Feb 15
Feb 15 Ranked/Achievemnt Pet Menagerie Can we have a ranked system and rating for our pet battle skills. Rewards like a pet menagerie for those who have collected a certain number of pets done a certain amount of the pet battles/quest achivements or those who have a high rated play. Something cool like a spa for your pets a place to Lounge. :DPaincakes3 Feb 15

Feb 14 Battle Pet Mobile App. simple question, what would a mobile app for your phone or pad have to include to make it worth a download, in your opinion, even to pay a minimum for the app.?Latree32 Feb 14
Feb 14 No Bonus XP!!! I played several games on a server in which it was Tuesday 1:30am and received no bonus (triple) XP for my pet battles. I then switched to an alt with a server time of Monday 10:30pm and still received bonus XP for those pet battles. The calendar shows that the event should go to Tuesday 4:00 am.Rosnia0 Feb 14
Feb 13 Looking to offload lots of battle pets Sorry if this isn't the right forum for this but I'm looking to sell the majority, if not all, of my pets. If the price is right I can do business on any server but I'd prefer to sell them on the following realms -Illidan -Aerie Peak -Blackhand If you're interested post ITT or contact me in game, my btag is Real#1331Donnie0 Feb 13
Feb 13 Opinion Dump on Pet Battles Let me preface this by saying I've never really visited the forums, and I just wanted to post some opinions that I've been developing about pet battles since MoP. Before that though, I want to say how excited I am for the upcoming pet dungeon. I feel like this is definitely a step in the right direction, and nothing has been nearly as interesting as this since the celestial tournament. Now what I want to do here is express some of my feelings about the current state of pet battles and some of the changes/improvements that I feel would address those feelings. My first feeling is that pet battles tend to be a little stagnant, and they do little to bring the community together that enjoys them. Other aspects of wow have no problems like this. For instance, it's not hard to get people together for dungeons, bgs, raids, and the premade groups function can pretty much find a group for anything you desire. We as pet battlers don't have this. The only resources we have are outside the game, like these forums. Now I understand that pet battles are mostly a solo experience at this point in time, but I feel like there should be events that bring us together, which would greatly encourage us to want to pet battle more. Some solutions to this would of course involve coop pet battles. With the upcoming pet dungeon, we can expand on that, and perhaps have 2v2 pet battles that we can queue up for, or pet dungeons where multiple people can be present. I also think we should have something akin to the battle system in Pokemon. By that I mean that at the end of each generation of Pokemon, they have a battle area (Battle Frontier, Battle Maison, Battle Tree, etc.) where you go in and you fight increasingly difficult battles with your chosen team of three. There are even options for 2v2 battles as well. I think this would be the greatest form of challenge in pet battles right now, because you are limiting yourself to three pets, and will have to think carefully on what you would use, whereas the issue with events like the celestial tournament can easily be brute forced down by having enough pets. This battle place would also alleviate the aforementioned problem of not being able to enjoy pet battles with other people by implementing the 2v2 part of it. Another suggestion(and this is mostly just to bring pet battles in line with pvp) would be to have a rated system for pet battles. I don't feel as strongly about this one, but it would be a neat concept to have rated and unrated pet battles where unrated pet battles could function as they do now, and rated pet battles could be something akin to arenas, where your team of three can have it's own rating and winning consecutively could aware bags, sort of like champion strongboxes we get from winning bgs, and these bags will have pet supplies, charms, stones, and a little AP. This could be a new way to get exclusive pets, or perhaps toys, such as a toy that allows you to transform your battle pet into a mount temporarily and use it like a traditional mount. This system would also work well with what we've already seen pet battles utilize in the past; achievements. A lot of the most fun stuff we've done in pet battles revolves around achievements and a rated battle system could give us additional achievements to obtain. Now, I mentioned at the beginning that pet battles tend to become stagnant. What I mean by that is the max level pet battles don't offer much at the moment. I don't do them a lot currently, because there aren't many rewards for this. I actually really enjoy pet battles with my lower level pets to level them up, because you generally are facing a lot of varied pets at lower levels, and it tends to be more challenging, especially when you want to overcome a level disadvantage. I find this to be a lot more fun. Another issue is the meta. Now I'm not complaining about this, because I don't necessarily lose to these teams, but I find it perplexing that probably half the pet battles at max level that I've done since Legion came out has had either Ghastly Kid, Fiendish Imp, or Teroclaw Hatchling. When I play at max level a lot of my battles will be against two of these three. Now what this suggests to me is that we need more balancing in pet battles. We of course see balancing in other aspects of the game, so some pet balancing once in a while would be great. We have a ridiculous amount of pets already, and more to come, so it would be exciting to see a lot more of those represented in max level battles.Magicbeard37 Feb 13
Feb 12 Mount So far, I've met quite a lot of angry and ticked off people who complain they have to pet battle in order to get the Falcosaur mounts. The main reason is because they haven't even tried out pet battles, so they have to start from level 1. As for me, I'm a avid pet battler and collector and easily received 2 Falcosaur mounts. I just laugh in their face for complaining. Does that make me a bad person?Ylenaris48 Feb 12
Feb 12 I'm new: Poor quality pets? Should I keep or let go of poor quality pets that I catch? Should I even be trying to catch them? Hypothetically, would a level 1 poor pet leveled to 25 and then converted to rare end with the same stats as the same pet were one to be found at level 25 rare or even a level 1 rare pet brought to 25?Feridius20 Feb 12
Feb 11 Teroclaw Hatchling with 390 speed? Ok... a quick look in the forums and I don't see any mention of this. How is it possible that there are Teroclaw Hatchlings in PvP with 390 speed at level 25? Everything I read has it with only one breed and a maximum speed of 260. Every time I come up against the 390 version... the other team almost solos mine. :-(Trønder8 Feb 11
Feb 11 Pet Battle Dungeon... Any overviews? I'm not looking for a walkthrough (I want to go through the dungeon on my own and defeat it myself), but I've been doing a lot of googling and can't find much on it. I've found a few brief write-ups... but has anyone seen anything to the point that overviews the dynamics of it and the bosses. More specifically all of the bosses in the dungeon and the comps of the pets they are running? (Maybe even with moves?) It might be to early for some of this information, but I would like to start planning ahead (although I feel I will be fine). Thanks!Ashief14 Feb 11
Feb 11 So I had just gotten the Anubisath Idol... Which pets synergize well with this pet? My current lineup is Anubisath Idol, Chrominius, and Crusher. The Idol and Chrominius are level 5, whereas Crusher is level 4. I plan to get this team to max level because I've heard these pets are awesome for PvP battles, but I'm not sure if they go well with the the Idol.Bamboohunts3 Feb 11
Feb 11 Celestial Tournament - so depressed After years of off and on WoW and pet battling and finally collecting over 600 pets and getting all the safaris I finally sat down to go to the Celestial Tournament. I'm more into collecting than battling so I kinda avoided it. I looked up strats, levelled all necessary pets and entered........only to find all the basic mechanics for defeating celestials have been nerfed in Legion. I am so depressed. All i need is one more cat pet and that only one is xu-fu and now I can't be a crazy cat lady. Does anyone have any CURRENT legion guide to defeating the celestials? I am so depressed that all the time I put in this week to leveling pets was wasted cuz of some random nerfs. thanksOtravez44 Feb 11
Feb 10 Pet Battle World Quests Gone Finished family familiar a few weeks back and I've noticed I haven't seen a single pet battle world quest since! It's just toon specific though, and when I log to another 110 I can see them all again. I just wonder if anyone else has had this problem?Alinadice1 Feb 10
Feb 10 Traded, thank you! Hello all, if this isn't permitted, please lock/delete the post. (I saw selling codes wasn't ok, but what about trading?) I'm super interested in the Feldrake TCG mount (but that's if someone was feeling very generous haha). Willing to make a toon on your server for trade (learnable at lvl 20 isn't bad!~). For other offers (I love mounts?), I'm Horde side on Durotan! My battletag is Patromeris#1889, message me anytime, thanks much. :) *For context; I just so happened to find an unopened Cataclysm CE in Wal-Mart yesterday for $20 and snatched it up!Scox8 Feb 10
Feb 10 Dutiful Squire/Dutiful Gruntling Suggestion For many of us avid pet collectors, the prospect of grinding to PVP prestige 7 on a character of each faction to obtain both the Dutiful Squire and the Dutiful Gruntling is both daunting and extremely off-putting. I have already personally grinded to prestige 7 on Alliance and prestige 1 on Horde, but I'm out of steam. It is my suggestion and hope that Blizzard grant both sets of faction prestige pets to a character that has reached the appropriate prestige level. I submitted an in-game suggestion via the Help menu earlier, and I'm encouraging others to do the same. With 7.2, Blizzard is allowing prestige mounts to be shared across alts, so there may be hope for cross-faction pvp pets at some point. My whole gripe is that I don't mind working hard over an extended period of time for something, but I don't want to do the exact same grind for essentially the exact same reward. The prestige grind is partially redundant already, since the mounts are the same for both factions.Octarine6 Feb 10
