Pets that you would just get from the AH
Hello, Which pets did you decide to buy from the AH rather than try to collect, and why. For example I've bought these: * Terrible Turnip -- don't fancy grinding for it, too useful not to get as soon as possible because of weakening blow for catching other pets * Lil Timmy's white kitten -- too much waiting time for the spawn and if someone else collects it before I do, I'd probably deskflip. I realise it is just opinion and people have different frustration thresholds, but I am curious whether there any which are generally considered a boring grind or too difficult to get by chance ^_^6
Battle pet maximum cap still not increased?
Hey, I was hoping that with the release of Legion, the maximum 1000 pets that you can have in your pet collection would be increased. However I just tried adding pets to my collection and it still seems to have that ~1000 cap. So the question is: When will the cap be raised? And to how much; 1000-9999 pets in the pet journal? I'm asking because I've been stuck with so many pets that I want to keep, including many other serious pet tamers have been asking around and we still seem to be struggling with this problem. I really hope there are plans for increasing the cap at least, because with Legion we got naturally more pets to collect, but it's going to be difficult for us with over 1k pets. If anyone knows something, please let me know here.12
What happens if it's a draw?
I was wondering what happens when the battle results in a draw, i.e both pets dying at the same time. I have just battled the same person twice in a row. In the first battle, he had an undead pet at the end, which I killed, and the undead pet racial brings it back for one turn, then on his next turn he killed my final pet and his died straight after. In the second battle the same happened but the other way round, I had an undead pet at the end, which he killed, after it ressed I finished off his pet then mine promptly died. So in the first case, all my pets died a moment earlier, but the second all his were the first to die. So are they both losses/draws? or should one be a win? In the statistics panel, is there a section for pet battles that counts wins and draws? I've looked but can't find one. Thanks, Del2
Pet Battle Guild???
I've been considering setting up a guild for battle pet enthusiasts like myself. One issue I've found is that its very hard to find fellow pet battlers to share this feature with. I would imagine that it would be more of a casual/social guild with the battle pet focus. Of course also attempting raiding etc as well. I had ideas about some events that we could run, things like tournaments (1v1, same type, loads of ideas for different types), best pet competitions. Before I actually go and make it however I wanted to gauge the potential interest that there may be. Clearly there would be a few issues with regards to what server it should be on, horde or alliance, however this shouldn't be a massive problem as pets are account bound. Any thoughts?3
Pet Charms in Legion?
So, since they nerfed the Pet Charms rewards for a bunch of WoD stuff, you'd assume it's so current Legion content don't feel bad in comparison... but why is it then that not even one in ten world quest pet battles actually reward any Pet Charms? And there don't seem to be any other source for them? I want to get all those new pets, but the total cost of them is many hundred Pet Charms, and I've been literally stuck on the same amount for quite a while now (since I do other stuff for reputation instead of go chasing nerfed amounts of them in WoD). What's the deal here really? Shouldn't have to do WoD content to buy the Legion pets when they've nerfed that content to say "this isn't what you should do anymore", right? I'm pretty confused and fairly annoyed about this. :S (And it's beside the fact that getting the extended pet inventory will take agesssssss!)7
Master Tamer Flummox bug
Beating this boss with only one type of pets does currently not award progress in the achievement list. I beat him with 3 beast pets today and I did not get credit for the Best of the Beasts achievement. Also, beating him with 3 aquatic pets for Aquatic Acquiescence is, I dare say, impossible. There are no aquatic pets that give any kind of damage increase debuff and any pets that have some kind of burst are too slow and get two turns of -50%dmg. It's all mostly fish, crabs, turtles or frogs that deal too low damage for him to barely go under 50% of his HP. You can't waste turns speeding up or trying to heal because you have like 3 turns to live with most pets. Thinking of using undead abilities? Nope! The only pets with any kind of usable undead ability are the Shattrath crocs with Absorb that has a 1 turn cooldown. The lowest I have gotten him to is like 980hp and after checking every aquatic pet in the Pet Journal I can't think of a way this could be done.5
Would a level 25 stone work for "Overstuffed"?
Level 25 stone = Ultimate Battle-Traning stone (couldn't fit it in the title). Just wondering so I don't waste it.1
Design a pet!
There has been a topic where we designed certain pet abilities. Shall we dare to design pets themselves too? My example: Name: Rustleling – I'm not good at names, you're welcome to suggest another one. :P Type: Elemental Possible appearance: http://www.wowhead.com/npc=63027/tumbleweed#modelviewer:10+0 Source: Quest reward (a quest being a Westfall/Barrens reminder, I believe, besides they aren't in these zones :P) Pet journal flavour text: "Riverpaw gnolls believe that these stalks are an omen of incoming changes." Unique: No Cageable: IDK :P Rarity: Uncommon Breeds: P/S (I wanted to include more, but quests rewards are usually monobred) Abilities:... Too much of a hurry, I know. Also noticed that someone on US forums has already had another plan, so… ;)27
PvP pet battle APP
Just like wow armory app but just for pvp pet battling. This could even be set up in the armory app. Would have: -No 3D enviroments/arenas -No long 3D animations -Left (ours) and right (opponent) side pets -The UI could remain the same, it works, bars on top, spells below. -Option to browse pet library with same options as wow (like set/remove favorite), just copy past the pet journal!!! -Create/save team set ups for quick access (maybe a 10 team limit) -Online PvP matchmaking (possible and best to be linked to ingame match making) Would not have: -Achievements, most likely it could be exploited for free achieves. -No leveling pets, u do that in the WoW -No trading/collecting pets, u do that in WoW Keeping it simple, this would be a fun no reward no cost PvP matchmaker, much like HS, that you can play on "the throne", on the bus stop/ride, in line for government services and/or just in the park. Thoughts? suggestions? would you play it?1
Can't start pet battles
I dinged 110 a few days ago and started doing world quests when I realized I couldn't engage into any kind of pet battles. I have previously done them on my rogue back in WoD but on my new demon hunter it doesn't seem to work. That means I can attack those open world battle pets, but with my weapons instead of my ripoff pokemon. there are also no symbols on the mini map. A dedicated pet battle ability is also missing in my passiv skill list. The only pet battle related skill is the resurrection thingy, so I tried talking to the NPCs that could teach you the pet battle ability, but they don't offer anything like that. The only thing they do is give me quests for battling guys in Azeroth. tl;dr can't do pet battles, missing passive, npc doesn't give me anything3
PvP in The Underbelly VS. pet battles
So, I've dinged 110 and am excited to catch the new pets Legion offers. I was excited to see that I could get a few from a drop from a rare boss while I quested in several areas, and I am excited to catch the other ones... but I'm also frustrated, with the PvP area in The Underbelly in Dalaran. While I like the concept in itself in a way, the PvP in that area, and while I am more than happy for the people who do like it, unlike me, I'm not too happy with the execution. I know that you can ask Raethan, the NPC near the entrance, for a guard that allows you to go look for pets and do quests. While a really great option for those who hate the PvP, while the 5 gold cost is not the problem, it is kind of an issue that the guards don't stay very long. I didn't even have time to capture 1 pet. It is maddening to have a pet in your trap, only to lose it just before the added pets die because the guard has disappeared and you're dead before you can say 'damn it', particularly when the pet (for instance: Blind Rat) can't be captured in another spot now... The guards take a break VERY OFTEN, so The Underbelly IS PvP at least 95% of the time. To wait for it not to be doesn't appear to be a solution at all.4
Tiny Terrors and Beasts of Fable with 1 Team
The famous "Howl-Bomb" strategy is gone, but I developed a new one, I call "Doombird", which can be used to defeat all "Tiny Terrors" and "Beats of Fable" with one team. You need "Unborn Val'kyr", "Ikky" and an "Emerald Proto-Whelp" for the "Tiny Terrors" and the "Unborn Val'kyr", "Ikky" and a "Moth" for the "Beasts of Fable".

Do Pets Still Drop in MoP LFR? (6.0-7.0)
I have been farming Kovok in the last wing of SoO LFR, for the whole year, on two characters every week, and as of the 7.0 patch, a few more characters are able to solo it so I am up to five characters each week now. 95% of the time I have used bonus rolls, so I should be around 100 kills + ~100 bonus rolls, though I don't remember if the pets only drop from bonus rolls? I'm not too sure about the drop rate either, according to Wowhead it's around 1%? If it's indeed that low, then I can understand that's it's just unlucky RNG. Have you had any pets drop in ToT or SoO LFR during WoD or later?1
Faster pet battle speed?
You need to give us a option to speed up the pet battles. Put a quantity cap per hour on how many fights we can win, or some other mechanic to avoid the abuse of just farming pet battles for char exp etc... But you really have to speed them up. There's so much to do all the time, a million other things, and sitting there watching these pets battle it out with their SLOOOOW ANIMAATIONS makes me wanna rip out my hair... I'm not retarded, don't force me to wait 4-6 secs between every turn and action taken. Turns shouldn't take more than 2 sec, wam pow DONE!! Next move... This slow speed is extremely frustrating when fighting high level pets which all come in a full 3 pet party, and when they heal making everything last even longer... And when a dungeon or BG queue calls you in the middle of a fight, THAT is also enfuriating.2
