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!)16
New to pet battles
New to pet battles, I have got 3 level 25 pets now, a green quality frog, a green otter fella and a blue PP emperor crab. Now I've been trying to catch a blue quality Emerald Proto-Whelp PP, I have a Blue HH, and a green PP, just struggling to get the one I need. Been trying for a while. I have a Anubisath Idol at 19 now, and a mechanical panerian drogonlin at 16, both blue quality. Next on my list to get is a turnip. Any suggestions as to what else I should look for next that would be good. I've been doing the quest line for eastern kingdom, kaladam, outlands, and northrend (can't beat the final boss fight major Payne), I've got a level 2 megarerie at my level 3 garrison but can't beat the gromli and kromli I have a level 102 horde and a 73 alliance. Any advice would be appreciated.4
Battle on the Broken Isles
Hi all, I have been stuck now for several days at 29 out of the 37 available quests to complete the Pet Battle achievement "Battle on the Broken Isles". I understand that the World Quest Pet Battles are on some sort of RNG based rotation system... But... Some people are receiving World Pet Battles in Suramar City, but I am not. I thought I had done all of the Suramar City quests which appears to have opened other World Quests to show up in Suramar City, but no pet battles. For example, yesterday a guild mate had two pet battles in Suramar City that I did not and again today, they have another Pet Battle that does not show up on my maps? I have not completed any of these Pet Battles that show up for my guild mate, but don't show up for me. Can someone please tell me how to unlock these World Quest Pet Battles in Suramar City or explain why I can't see these quests? Many thanks and have fun out there.6
Phantoms and monsters of Hallow's End
Surely the undead creatures have already dominated PvP, but since this Sunday they might invade whole Azeroth and more. The Hallow's End shall begin causing spooky things to happen and revealing ghastly beings, including our beloved companions! Sinister Squashling (Elemental, cageable) can come from the Headless Horseman, both from the Loot-Filled Pumpkin at the Scarlet Monastery and from Crudely Wrapped Gift gotten after the village event. Can also appear within Handful of Treats. You can spend 150 Tricky Treats on it too but it seems to be redundant. Over these years there are already quite a lot of them and you can buy one @ AH, but keep in mind that you need to use an original item (not caged pet) during the event to fulfill a criterium for Sinister Calling achievement. Creepy Crate (Undead, not cageable, uncommon) is needed to be found by you during the special quest chain. When it hangs out with you, it devours critters using its mysterious powers. Nobody knows what happens if an Unborn Val'kyr decides to save the victims… Feline Familiar (Beast, cageable) can be purchased from the event vendors for 150 treats. It's probably the most iconic pet of this event because of its witch hat and floating broom. It does account towards your Crazy for Cats achievement. Cursed Birman (Undead, cageable) can be purchased from the event vendors for 150 treats. Looks like a Mr. Bigglesworth's relative – maybe it might take away his Naxxtraumas? Otherwise, he can still bring quite a nice amount of gold as he's been on live (what?) for just one year. Being an undead with beast attacks, he can take revenge on normally advantageous critters. Sadly it doesn't account towards CfC. Widget the Departed (Undead, cageable) can be purchased from the event vendors for 150 treats. Like the previous undead kitty, it's been brought here in 2014. It can surprise critters too. In the German client it's called Schrödinger's Cat. If only it had 50% chance to start an encounter with dodge… Sadly it doesn't account towards CfC either. And does. Ghastly Rat (Undead, not cageable) came from the 6.2.2 patch notes without any complementary item. A Warcraft Pets poster @Squeeky called some days ago that they are battled at the garrison when the Creepy Crawlers are used. Has some advantages of Blighted Squirrels with both Crouch and Rabid Strike. "By far the best way to spread the plague of undeath." Ghost Maggot (Undead, not cageable) is from that 6.2.2 patch note too. An undead with Survival can have 3 rounds of ease regardless on its speed! "If a live maggot eats the dead, what does an undead maggot eat?" Spectral Spinner (Undead, not cageable) is also from that patch note. If it gets that 325 speed he might become a new PotQ. I'm not even going to post why for the security reasons. :P "As if a mine full of non-ghost spiders wasn't scary enough." That's all, I think. I wanted to say about the toys and other vanities too for the sake of treats collecting, but this post is already long and too bit colourful for a such gloomy time. Good luck! Hehehe…12
No Broken Isles World Quest Pet Battles today?
Hi, I am currently working on the "Pet Battles, Battle" achievement "Battle on the Broken Isles" and noticed that today, there are simply No World Quest Pet Battles to do at all. I only have a few more battles to go for the achievement and understand that some days there are only duplicates of what I have already completed... But... Are there some days where no, none, not one World Quest Pet Battle is available on the Broken Isles? Thanks and have fun out there.5
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?2
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.14

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.6
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
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
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
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
