Sorry to disturb you all with this (possibly) trash topic, but her I stand, in the Upper Blackrock Spire, in search of the Lanticore Spawnling to my new collection of batlle pets, only to find there is no Lanticore to drop the companion, as Wowhead said there should be at my current position, so if anyone have some info about this troll, I will happily hear it. Thank you.3
What are the best pets right now?
Hey, I have a question - are there any pets who are really powerful and stronger than the others? I don't know which pets to catch, which ones too level up with 25lvl battle stone. I do pvp for fun, sometimes pve (I try to get Xu-Fu but it is so hard to kill even one npc!). Top rated pets on http://www.warcraftpets.com/wow-pets/top-twenty/ haven't really checked since last year. I have Anubisath, Unborn, Pandaren WS and Graves from that list. Wanted to get the Chrominius but most of them have been changed lately and they are not OP anymore, there are no OP combos. I think my strongest pet is Nether Faerie Dragon - his arcane attacks are strong and Evanescence/life exchange are really, really great. I've heard that Zandalari Kneebiter and Bloodgazer Hatchling are quite good - the first one does good combo with Unborn, but he's really hard to catch. Could you help me a bit?16
Invisible master, visible battle pet
Hey folks. Gameplay question, rather than pet mechanics. I was wondering if it was at all possible to stealth as a player and have the battle pet out, visible. So far, I've only found that in parties your invisible character gets the usual transparent effect going, with the battle pets entirely visible. Outside of a party, however, the master and the battle pet both disappear entirely from sight. For those people curious why I'm looking for this, is because I'm trying my hand at some transformations in RP with battle pets as the proxy transformed character, with the actual character slinking along, transparent/invisible. I'm sure this is a gameplay consideration with regards to PVP and visibility. But is there any way to somehow bypass this?0
Pet Battle Legendary Item
I've got a recommendation for a legendary item that is fairly simple - it heals all active pets for 25% of their health, can only be used once per pet battle (perhaps taking a turn) and cannot be used during the celestial tournament, "family familiar" quests or PvP. Alternatives would be boosting crit and hit chance, erasing or changing the weather, dealing damage or otherwise debuffing the enemy team. I think this would be an excellent rare drop from the pet battle dungeon - perhaps when completing the equivalent of a mythic + version of it. If not a legendary item, it could perhaps become a toy (like the safari hat) or ability button.1
Class Hall pet concerns
As some may know, 7.2 brings new Class Hall pets – for rogues, monks and maybe death knights. "Yay, more pets" or "Nay, more level grinding"? I'm closer to that second one, but I'm not a very fast player. Have they assumed we have already created a lot of alts for transmogs? Will we have to build the OH for druids in a week or two even many expansions later? Is it yet another Argent Tournament/Molten Front/The Tillers, but with no way to catch up? Do they want to make us buy character boosts? ;-) Or do they just want to give something distinct to people playing their class, like the mounts? (A company of a raven and a toucan looks a bit funny, doesn't it? Also, the mount's model would look nice on Gilnear Raven/Crow, but that's an OT.) ...~ Jeremy Feasel, when asked about the alt-friendliness of the idea.0
Pet Battle Dungeon =/= The Celestial Tournament
Dunno what else i expected from this, maybe that you played as the pet with a few other ppl, not just a new cele tournament thing in a old instance. What do you guys have to say about this ^^? (you can read about it on wowhead). Talking about pets, howcome blizz removed the ability to use the mirror from the panda in dread (pandaria zone) on yourself, after you used a pet mirror on a pet?, (just to keep the pet form in combat) i had fun running around as a pet in the world, doing world quest, or in instance. Atleast make it so the pet mirror dont break in combat then :D6
Hi! I'm new with pet battles and I'm doing great so far but I need help with breeds. Some pets have many possible breeds and I want to know what to aim at. For an example Zandalari Anklerender, I love that pet but has 4 possible breeds. Kinda have 3 of them, SS, PS, PP, but missing the 4th. Which ones should I focus on and is someone here to give some tips?3
PvP Pet Battle quest...yay or nay?
I have quite a few level 25 pets. I've never done any farming for a certain breed of a certain pet, though I only really use blue level pets anyway. I'm not a hardcore pet battler. I don't feel like researching into the pet battle meta-game, then grinding out whole new pets to make one of the desirable comps. That being said, the quest for 'win pet battle pvp' keeps tempting me. But I'm quite a sore loser and get quite frustrated when I lose a lot. In the pet battle PvP queue, is it mostly the hardcore pet battle PvPers that are about, or are there quite a few casuals like me who I could potentially beat with a semi-decent comp?2
I used to think pet battles were fun...
Then I got all my pets to level 25 and now keep getting matched up with opponents that have super-rare pets with stupidly overpowered abilities that are basically impossible to win against. When I was still leveling up, I had about a 75% win rate, now it's more like 10% and that's pretty much just when I get lucky enough to get a match-up without overpowered pets. PvP pet battles more and more seem like pure luck to me. First it's the match-up, both in terms of overpowered pets and if they are strong/weak to your pets. Then there's crits, these can make a HUGE difference. Also many pets have RNG abilities like 1-3 hits or 50% chance to hit/stun. If you try to be strategic and change your pets according to your opponents pets, you get punished for it because that's basically one free hit. I'm also starting to think that you cannot use anything but very fast pets in PvP battles because going first is such a MAJOR advantage. I was also wondering who goes first if both pets have the same speed stat, but my guess is RNG again. For the record, I'm using Onyxian Whelpling, Core Hound Pup and Jade Oozeling, all rare, because those were the best I had when I got started. EDIT: Is there no actual match-making for pet battles at all? I just lost 8 games in a row (conceded most of them) and am still getting matched up against impossible opponents. Also, what's the !@#$ing deal with mechanical/undead pets? Why do these have such a HUGE advantage over all other pet families at no cost that I can see?9
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".

Pet Battles :Bugs, Oddities & absurdness
during Pet Battles I have come across few things that I want to share and want to see what is the experience of other players and if there is any chance of a solution or suck it up and live with it. please, no ranting and No QQ, just state facts & your experience & few lines why you think something happened & didnt happen & what should have happened or not happened. for simplicity the assumption here is that both the target & your pet are same level 1. Dodge ====== this is the most obvious one. I understand that the designers must have had a hell of a time designers the algorithms to make it work but dodge doesnt seem to be affected by the following 1. Rooted 2. Dazed 3. hibernating 4. slowed down 5.Chilled 6. Blinded at least for the first 4, the logic dictates that the dodge chance should be 0% but I have still seen NPC & player pets (including mine) performing dodge while under the influence of the above 4 (and even without any self buff). its the biggest spoiler in my opinion and pretty much destroys the game strategy if you are working towards certain attacks that normally have higher chance to miss but are claimed to hit 100% if any of the above conditions are applied on the target. examples 1. I have seen hibernating bears dodging even standard attacks. Miss ==== this is another thing which I have seen not working as the tooltip suggests, for example - "focus" gives 100% hit chance but I still see targets being "missed" or attacks being "dodged". -"Blood in the water" & "Nocturnal strike" have high miss chance but tool tip has "always" chance to hit if the target is "blinded" or is "bleeding" -"Deep Freeze" to always stun the "chilled" target doesnt work as the tooltip suggests Apart from that there is a big laundry list of attacks that are almost redundant due to almost 0% chance to hit like "demolish". I once tested that for 5 consecutive moves it was missed until the pet died so its safe to conclude that miss chance for demolish is 100% and its only there to fill up a slot. I invite other players to report the oddities they have experienced where the game didnt behave the way it should have or where they find misleading tooltip again, please keep the discussion meaningful. thanks -12
