Beating Baa'l without Uuna doesn't give pet.

Pet Battles
I just defeated Baa'l hardcore mode without Uunas help, but didn't receive the pet. Appearently you really do need Uuna to get the pet.

My team to defeating Baa'l hard mode, Mini Mindslayerx2 and Transmutant, any team of all magical pets with life exchange should work. Magic pets can't take more than 35% health from a single attack, so I just rotated them through constantly using life exchange to get them back up to full health until Baa'l was around 700hp than finished him off with mana surge.
having uuna is not the only way you can use that snail toy to kill baal then you can pet battle him and it takes 3 nexus whelping with tail sweep mana surge and arcane storm
Just did more or less the same thing you did. Transmutant and 2x Mini Mindslayers, bouncing Life Exchange then swapping to the next until the 4th did less than a full recharge. Corrosion, then Transmute: Enemy to On Fire; Amplify Magic, LIfe Exchange, Mana Surge; Then Mana Surge on final pet for the kill.

Able to do this multiple times, but it doesn't trigger the quest complete.

I've even seen some people using the Gastropod to reset him, but it doesn't appear to be doing anything anymore. Or maybe I'm missing something about what exactly is supposed to happen.

Regardless, this thing appears to be extremely broken and I suggest everyone submit a ticket if you're also having trouble.
I think/thought the gastropod shell tactic was in response to Uuna not weakening him, rather than being a way around needing her at all. It sounds like you need to have her, or be nearby when someone else does.

For a while she wouldn't weaken him and I wasn't about to farm for that stupid toy so I turned on warmode - because I'd had it off the whole time - and went back. Uuna weakened him and I was able to kill him, which granted me the pet. My brother, who doesn't have Uuna at all, was in my party and also got him.
The gastropod trick is to basically reset baa’l by “killing” him. I was on the secret finding discord for a bit and people were reporting this trick didnt work every time. Some poor soul had done it at least 5 times and didnt work.

I have an upgraded Uuna, and she didnt weaken him for a while, then early one morning I tried again and I was the only one there. She did her emote and told me to battle him now but he was still without the debuff.

Kept going back every few hours and eventually I stumbled across a tiny baa’l and was able to beat him.

War mode toggling didnt work either.

Just keep going back until you get lucky, it’s buggy as hell.
If I'm going to use a cheese strat will regular Uuna work?
if i beat Baa'l with a regular Uuna out, will the pet drop?

the answer is NO. i beat Baa'l with regular Uuna out and nothing. she HAS to be upgraded
Misinfo being spread here. If you kill Baa'l without the Uuna debuff you will not get him. Regular Uuna will not work. If you haven't finished her quest line AND done all the pebbles you won't even see Baa'l. Also, it needs to be on the toon that does the pebbles. So if you finished the pebbles on an alt and then went looking for Baa'l on your main he won't be there. I killed the strong Baa'l countless times while waiting for Uuna to get off her butt and zap him. It wasn't until she did and he shrank did I receive the pet. It is a very long and tedious breadcrumb quest that leads to the Waist of Time and hopefully The Hivemind at a later date. Happy hunting! I've done the whole questline so I'm happy to answer any questions.

P.S.

You better believe I'm going to wear this stupid belt until they shut the servers off.
Uuna needs her Star Wand to weaken B'aal, so no, she needs to be upgraded.
I never finished Uuna a dark Place. I have B'aal.
I grouped with someone who obviously had finished Uunas story.
All I can say is only battle B'aal if he is small, he is easy to beat then.
Good luck!!
I beat baa'l without the debuff on him and got no pet, if she hasn't made him small it doesn't matter if you beat him you still will not get the pet. I have tried war mode on/off and I have tried other people being around with uuna and I have had my own uuna out and reloaded ui and someone used their shell toy and nothing is working, this is super frustrating.
Uuna is not too hard to get. There are plenty of YouTube tutorials that show how to obtain her and complete her questline.

Okay, well, the Dark Place was pretty rough. I failed several times. Make a hug macro and put it on one of your action bars. As soon as you start getting overwhelmed by soul eaters, start spamming hugs (make sure you have her highlighted). After that, if you're able to summon her and she has a sparkly trail of light following her, you succeeded, even if she seemed to get consumed by the soul eaters.
I've turned off ALL add-ons. I have turned w/m on and off at least 10 times. I've reloaded, relogged, and reset everything several times. I bought 3 mini-mindslayers and have killed empowered Baa'l several times in both w/m and non-w/m. I have realm hopped. He has not reset, Uuna (who is fully upgraded) has not reset or interacted with Baa'l.

I opened a ticket, have a day wait. I'm super irked! Maybe this is what they mean by a "Waist of Time" and it's all a prank on us.
Just finished both Uuna and Baa'l in the past 2 days. My gawd, what a pain in the butt those quest lines are. So worth it though.

How would anyone know where to look for all those pebbles and know to do them in exact order?

I have heard a rumor about a hidden bumblebee mount, but can't find anything on the net. Anyone else hear this?

If any mount is going to be tied to this ridiculously long line of mysteries, it will be the Hivemind.
