there is no need to comment the locations below every strat. - if you click on the little arrow right above the turns you'll see we already added that information

Hey all, I like levelling lv1s at Vale of Eternal Blossoms on the Aquatics there (listed above as Dancing Water Skimmer) It's right outside both horde and alliance shrines/towns so easy to access and safe for low level characters. - - Three spots fairly close with 3/4 pets each so you can use treats and not run out of pets to fight. - - Spots: - /way 74, 57 - /way 87, 46 - /way 73, 27 - - Team: - 1.

This is the only strat that worked for me and worked on the first try.

Thank you :)
Thank you for this substitution, Depenik! Made the fight much easier :)

Well, for someone new to setting strats, you did good! Now youre in, try looking for a few more. :) - - You'll have to learn to shrug off the unregistered anonymous types who say "That doesn't work" without taking the trouble to give any details to help anyone find any potential problems, or even a reason to believe there are any. Usually, they're wrong; their issue is PEBCAK.

Thanks so much! Totally new to the world of TD script so I wouldn't have known where to start. Thanks for giving this a try and sharing a scrip. I made sure to add it! <3
Tiffany#1468 wrote today on: Tasha Riley
Thank Grainne. While not new to pet battling, I am VERY VERY new to actually writing out a strat or scrips ect and this was my first. So I know this is a bit rough around the edged. But it definitely helped me in a pinch when I realised I hadnt found and lvled all the new pets yet since coming back from a break from the game. So I appreciate someone looking into its viability.
Tiffany#1468 wrote today on: Tasha Riley
Thanks so much! I know it's not a good at the top strat, but I was In a pinch and went in there not realising I missing what I needed for this one. So it definitely can help in a pinch or as a backup haha
Tiffany#1468 wrote today on: Tasha Riley
And I am really sorry if anything I said came off as ungrateful or annoyed because that's honestly not the case. Even in spite of it failing so many times for me I definitely appreciate the strat, as my own strat even has has a chance of RNG with crits causing a failure at times too. So once I finally got these pets I wanted to give the better/higher rated strat a go. I had just thought my observation about the auto play might help the others i saw saying they had issues, so hence my ... [weiter lesen]

PET NEWS - BY DRAGONSAFTERDARK
2020-02-18 20:15:48
The Bronze Dragonflight is once again calling on the heroes of Azeroth to help repair the timestreams, and prevent catastrophic changes from happening. Of course, that doesn’t mean we can’t collect a few pets along the way!

It may not seem obvious at a glance, but the Burning Crusade timewalking vendor does sell pets, or rather the chance for pets to drop. When you visit Cupri in the middle of Shattrath on the second floor of the Terrace of Light, you’ll see she has Bag of Fishing Treasure for 150 Timewarped Badges. This bag has the chance for four adorable baby crocolisks to drop:

  • Chuck
  • Muckbreath
  • Snarly
  • Toothy


Now, if you’re looking to save your Timewarped Badges for other items, these pets can still be collected in two other ways: the auction house, and a fishing daily from the Burning Crusade expansion.

If you also want to keep your gold in pocket, you can park an alt next to Old Man Barlo and keep an eye out for the daily quest: Crocolisks in the City. Old Man Barlo can be found northeast of Shattrath at the Slimyr Lake in Terrokar Forest, at the coordinates 38.6, 12.8 . As far as can be seen, this is the only daily of his five that contains the crocolisks as part of the loot table.


Of course, the timewalking pets don’t stop there!

The heroic dungeon Magisters’ Terrace also has a chance for the Phoenix Hatchling pet to drop from Kael’thas Sunstrider.

And the Black Temple timewalking raid will also drop pets from all their respective bosses.

  • High Warlord Naj'entus -- Leviathan Hatchling

  • Supremus -- Abyssius

  • Reliquary of the Lost -- Fragment of Anger, Fragment of Desire, or the Fragment of Suffering

  • Mother Shahraz -- Sister of Temptation



As a lovely little bonus, all the raid pets count toward the pet collection achievement – Raiding with Leashes III : Drinkin’ from the Sunwell, which rewards the non-battling pet K’ute.

Every pet listed above—aside from K’ute—is also cageable. So, if you don't want to add a duplicate to your collection you can put them up on your Auction House, or gift them to a friend in need. It’s entirely up to you!

We hope your timewalking adventures are successful, and happy pet battling to you all!

PAGE UPDATE - BY ARANESH
2020-02-15 16:51:27
A little update made it to the frontpage right now with a couple of changes and new additions:

  • No more split between "small" and "large" news. There are just news. Right here in this column.
  • The side panels or menu items can be rearranged to your liking now! Only if you are logged in though. Just use the little arrows and push the ones you use the most often to the top :-)
  • A few new side panels appeared! Among them a leaderboard showing the Xu-Fu users with the top 25 collections for each region (based on unique pets collected).


Any ideas for other panels? Leave a comment :-)

PET NEWS - BY DRAGONSAFTERDARK
2020-02-08 12:11:43
You walk into the capital then stop dead in your tracks. Hearts of pink, red, and white litter every possible surface of the buildings, and a not so subtle aroma clings to the air with a persistence that leaves you lightheaded. Coy glances and breathy laughter follow you through the city as you go about your errands, while you try not to think too hard about what force in nature decided it was a good idea to give a goblin wings, and the power to bestow love on unsuspecting passerby. Business complete, you manage to dodge not one, but two well-meaning celebrants who espouse their eternal love for you, and avoid eye contact with Kwee Q. Peddlefeet. Once you make it out of the city you breathe a sigh of relief. You'd rather face down a horde of murlocs than go through that again, because there's one thing you know for sure: love is many things, and terrifying is one of them.



Ah, Love is in the Air, both literally and figuratively, as Azeroth's version of Valentine's Day has made its appearance in the capital cities! This is a two week event that comes at the end of the Lunar Festival, and offers three holiday pets for those of us in the pet community: Lovebird Hatchling, Peddlefeet, & Toxic Wasteling.


Vendor

The Lovebird Hatchling and the Peddlefeet can be purchased from the Lovely Merchant for 40 Love Tokens each. Love Tokens are the Love is in the Air holiday currency, and can be collected through holiday event dailies offered in the capital cities.





Dungeon Drop

The third pet, Toxic Wasteling, is a drop from the Heart-Shaped Box, which you get for killing the boss Apothecary Hummel in the holiday dungeon The Crown Chemical Co.. This box is only available once per day, on (currently) players 110 or higher.





If you don't have the time to farm up tokens, or you're just not getting that dungeon drop, not to worry! All three of these pets are cageable, so keep an eye on your AH for these lovely additions to your roster.


Happy battling!

For some reason, none of the new 8.3 strategies are loading into Rematch with a target. Thus, they don't autoload when interacting with the target.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bedlam

Just thought I'd introduce those who are unaware to the root meaning of the word that is going to hit this site when Shadowlands launches.

There are so many changes coming that a massive amount of strategies are going to need to be changed. I would like to offer the - at least temporary - solution (I'm not a mod/admin so I don't know if it has already been put forward) of adding tags back to strategies, specifically a tag to denote whether or not the strategy is viable in Shadowlands content (bearing in mind; some people may not have purchased the xpac). (edited)

Hey!
Yeah, we're aware. A tag for Shadowlands already exists and once we know more details about the exact changes coming and what will be affected, we will tag all strategies affected by it. Might be a big clean-up process that will happen with Shadowlands.

By the way, there will also be a Patch 8.3. tag appearing soon on about 200 strategies due to the changes in some weather effects.

been having a problem for a few days with updating my pet collection. I don't see my server in the drop down list, I tried using another server and character. It updated the collection but When i try to use Magpie it doesn't recognize that I have any pets.

I know the issue isn't here as it also happens at warcraftpets as well.

Please stop make the page re-posting comments when reloding the page!

Learned this today: posted a comment, came back later to see if there was any feedback, reloaded the page: the page posted a copy of my comment. That was not what I wanted. I just wanted to check if my comment was posted and if there were some responses. I did not want to post a copy of my comment from 5 hours ago. And, a humble guess, I think the majority of the users are not expecting such behavior either.

Thanks, and, as said, I love your (this) site.

And your browser didn’t warn you about „sending data again“? I haven’t checked but would assume that comments are using POST, and I don’t know any browser silently sending a POST again on refresh?

Nope, it didn’t. Otherwise I wouldn’t mention it. Using current Safari on macOS, haven’t checked it with FF. Sorry for the late reply; turned out that the site had logged me out silently, so I didn’t see any notifications.

That's.. Bad. I'm currently not having much time to work on this stuff, but I guess I'll add it to the list.. :/

I tested
- start page
- a strategy comment
and both triggered Safari to ask for confirmation..

OK. I’ll try it again with this comment reply. I’ll leave the page open and come back in a couple of hours to reload the page. (This was the scenario, IIRC. Though I’m not sure if the problematic comment was a real comment or a reply to a comment, like this one.) Anyway, I’ll report back then.

OK, have reloaded the page now (3 or 4 hours after posting) and… everything fine this time (that is, I got the confirmation dialog). So, no idea what did provoke the faulty behaviour the other day. The state of the cache? Or maybe I had some setting activated in the Develop menu that prevented the sheet from coming up?
When/if it occurs again, I’ll post it here.

Hey! I used to have my Pet Collection imported onto the website, but it was deleted once I reconnected my battle.net account to set a character icon. Now when I try to import my collection again (even after removing the original connection), it reloads to a blank screen with "ssdfsds" in the corner.
I love the website and this is the only issue that I've ever encountered. I just wanted to bring it up! Thanks for all the wonderful work you do <3

Ehm, here I am again, complaining … ;-)

It would be nice if we wouldn’t have the limit of 990 chars in the Info box of a strat.
I’ve only posted 3 strats so far, but already run into that space problem. See my EnvBert strat with Squashling (https://www.wow-petguide.com/index.php?Strategy=4315).

In that Info box I only could squeeze-in the content by shortening many things, down to the gramatical limits, and by omitting some info. I know, I could continue in a comment in the comment section, but this doesn’t feel right. The essential infos should be in one place.

I’m also aware that 990 chars should be more than sufficient in most cases. But there are cases where more info is useful (like the above example), and unless there is a technical 990-characters-hard-limit, please give us more room. If someone really is misusing that box (what for?) you could always edit the post or/and contact the author.

Thanks for considering.

I think we had a much stricter limit 2 weeks ago and I personally don't think this infobox needs more characters because it's there for SHORT creator comments to strategy basics or pet choices and IMHO not to explain every single RNG situation players can experience.

If you can reduce RNG with breed restrictions... then maybe it's better to add them to the pets and not explain what can go wrong with other breeds. Also, I don't see the need to comment on the level pets because that is something that belongs to your pet team (or Rematch strings if you like to add your specific ones).

Most people come here not to read walls of text, they look for the better-rated strategies that match their pet collections, copy&paste stuff they need to import into their addons and only come back if something goes horribly wrong and then mostly to find help in other peoples' comments who also struggled or to find a different team/strategy: I don't think many people wanna read about stuff that already happened to them, they mostly want to see solutions and it's the best way to have them in a well-optimized strategy&team already.

Be honest, does it help when I struggle with this specific strategy and then come back and find something like "if this is happening you are screwed" or "if this is happening and you want pet XP restart, otherwise you win without rewards for your level pet" in your creator comments? I don't think so.

This is not a basic forum so maybe it's better to continue with keeping things short ;-)

To me, certain character limits tend to be problematic not because of the length of actual content, but because of formatting tags and embedding taking up a lot of characters. This is something I experience on most of websites, not just this one, but the most aggravating issue over here is linking to user profiiles and other sources of strategies, which could be alleviated with internalisation of link paths and @mentions.

About the tooltips themselves… I don't have any clear conclusions one way or the other. Put an effort into it? It's ignored. Leave it alone to keep it tidy? You come out as oblivious and heartless.
Same goes for strategies, a new one? Ignored on behalf of ones that took the spotlight first. And when it's actually noticed? It seems to outweigh another with 300+ flawless executions which somehow stays in the shadow. Therefore, I'm not sure one can account for every visitor upon creating the environment. :-)
The cycle of (tamer) strife can be cruel, and I believe something needs to be done with it nevertheless – but sadly, enough of the philosophy, for at the moment the engineering of more basic aspects has to come first!

@Lazey, Part I (Sorry, the page freaks out when I’m trying to post my reply as one. So, I’ll try it in two steps ;)

First and foremost, thanks for your reply and for your opinion. But I don’t agree with all of your points…‌

> I personally don't think this infobox needs more characters because it's there for SHORT creator comments to strategy basics or pet choices and IMHO not to explain every single RNG situation players can experience.

IMO the part that really should be kept short and precise is the description (the steps). The Info box, I agree with you, should also be short, but if there is a need for more information, it should be dumped into the Info box. (Not into the description, not into the comments section, for two different reasons, but I think both are obvious.)

Another possibilty would be to squeeze any meta info into the description before “Turn 1”. But this would be a cheap second Info box, and I don’t like the idea to abuse the form that way.

> If you can reduce RNG with breed restrictions... then maybe it's better to add them to the pets and not explain what can go wrong with other breeds.

I think you are referring to the Env Bert strat I have linked. Basically I agree. But you might have noticed that I already had added min power to pet #2, in order to exclude some of the substitutes. Though, I didn’t wan’t to do the same with the Blazehaound (pet #1), because I think the strat is doable also with a suboptimal breed. But maybe you are right and I should just exclude any non-P/P breeds.

@Lazey, Part II

> Also, I don't see the need to comment on the level pets because that is something that belongs to your pet team (or Rematch strings if you like to add your specific ones).

You are right here. The Rematch string is part of the Info box, and as such it should be parsed correctly. (The string that contains the correct and breed/damage-specific min health requirements). This should be enough, but, I think there are also folks that aren’t using Rematch. They also should know of the type-specific min health requirements. Unfortunatly the default forms of the page don’t offer any detailed entries for the min health. They only offer one entry (for all damage types), and I always put the worst-case min health there (for pets that are weak against the expected damage type)

> Most people come here not to read walls of text, […]

Well, I think, a “wall of of text” is not defined by the amount of characters. To create a wall of text you need two things: lots of characters, and lots of missing line breaks / paragraphs. I’m completely aware of that, and I’m always trying to section and format my texts in a manner that makes it usable for readers ;) I think the limit of 990 chars is not contributing to avoid walls of text. (It’s easy to build a a wall of text with only 500 chars, but I think you got what I mean…)

> Be honest, does it help when I struggle with this specific strategy and then come back and find something like "if this is happening you are screwed" or "if this is happening and you want pet XP restart, otherwise you win without rewards for your level pet" in your creator comments? I don't think so.

Good question. Me personally, when I use a new strat from somebody else, I always read thru the strat, and in the case I really need to level some pet, I then (likely) exclude strats that are mentioning things like “RNG”, “risk”, etc. But: I’m always happy (when using a new strat) when I see some detailed infos, so that I can estimate what is going to happen. But YMMV.

Welcome to battling :)

A lot depends on your roster - what pets you currently have, at what levels, and what breeds. More pets, fully levelled and made Blue, of the right breeds, makes everything easier. Since you haven't linked to a WoW character here, I can't see that, and it's hard to make specific suggestions.

I wrote a forum post here suggesting a development path for a battler. You'll have to decide what stage you're at:
https://eu.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/17623632232#post-3

The general directions of development people pursue are:

1. Collecting. Some people collect pets with not a lot of regard for their battling capabilities. However, since some pets are achieved only by battling, for example Wicker Wraith and Stunted Direhorn, even collectors need to pay some attantion to battling.

2. Achieving. There are many pet battling achievements in game, and following the natural trail through the Taming [Continent] achievements up to Pandaria, and then on to the Spirit Tamers, Beasts of Fable and the Celestial Tournament was an epic journey for me and for many others. It's well worth doing. The Celestial Tournament is still, IMO, the pinnacle of PvE pet battling. However, WoD and Legion and BfA have added more battling achievements.

3. Roster development. Distinct from collecting, this is finding the right pets for your toolbox in the right breeds and levelling and if necessary making them Rare with stones, so that you have the right specialist pet for any possible challenge.

4. PvP. Only a small minority of pet battlers spend a lot of time in PvP, but those who do really enjoy it.

Apart from Xu-Fu's here, you can read and join resources like the official Blizzard forums for pet battles, WarcraftPets.com website, or the WarcraftPets Discord, where like-minded addic.... er, battlers ... and more than delighted to answer any questions you might have.

Please ask again if you have any more specific questions!

+1 for the Celestial Tourney comment alone.

Only really to expand on Gráinne's comment as regards the 'collecting' and 'roster development' sections - which are, as said 'distinct' although they are intrinsically linked - I would like to point you in the direction of the in-game Achievements > Battle Pets > Collect tab. There are a series of achievements called Raiding With Leashes, pretty much all of which can be completed via the auction house - if you have the gold/inclination - or by completing old raids.
In this content-starved expansion (and it is, it's making people want to do pet battling, isn't it? XD), it's been some small relief to run (short) old content knowing there's a possibility of a worthwhile reward beyond the vague chance of some 75kG pants dropping.

Thanks so much for the replies. I think I am somewhat of a collector/roster builder. I go around doing the dailies but I also like buying pets just for their looks. I watched hazelnutty on youtube last night. I think I will focus on doing the expeditions when I have time to get all the pets that come from that. Then I will go back and do old raids like Eekwibble suggested.

Hey Mot!

That's because the page is a hobby project by one person who is not a professional web developer or programmer at all. Many of the quirks won't be worked on as long as there are bigger topics open. You can read through the list of tasks and bugs in the devnotes:
https://www.wow-petguide.com/index.php?m=DevLog

Regarding the versions, I don't really want to do that right now. There's already a mention of the last update time (use the downwards arrow on a strategy below the pets to open additional details)

OK, sorry for my complaints then. Regarding the really good overall design of the site, I indeed thought that there were professional web developers envolved, and the little glitches were oversights.

There seems to be a parsing error in the site’s script:

Input via posting form:

`[spell=Immolate] / [ spell=Flame Jet] until won or your pet dies. In the latter case clean up with your starting pets, which should be at pretty good health.`

Output (as displayed):

Immolate / [ spell=Flame Jet] until won or your pet dies. In the latter case clean up with your starting pets, which should be at pretty good health.

As you see the second spell is not interpreted (displayed) properly. It is displayed in its tag form (source form) instead.

The new Gnomeregan dungeon

Right now I’m in the middle of that dungeon (and I have done already several runs since 8.1) and I find that this dungeon is underwhelming.

It seems the way to go with at least two thirds of the battles is using an absorbent pet (Emperor and the like). There are only some battles that require some creativity (the Rat and the final one, for example).

For my taste this is pretty poor design. Going thru the most part of the dungeon with an absorbent pet (Emperor Crab, e.g.) is time-consuming and just plain annoying.

They had chances to script some interesting battles, requiring creativity (like in the final battle). No clue why they failed. (As they did with the designs of many WQs, dungeons and other stuff in 8.0/8.1) Negligence? Incapacity?

This was critics, not a rant. (Maybe except the very last part ;)

If I’m missing something, please enlighten me.

They seem to have expected some things, though, see adding pets with aquatic damage (gun and ooze) aswell as a resistant cockroach to stop us from cheesing everything with elementals. Yet, a fact their damage output is low combined with shields not checking for racial damage means this mechanic prevents a lot as you mentioned. The last boss has got an ability to remove basic shields so perhaps that was not in oblivion either… unlike the reactive damage. Also, an ability that forces swap altogether with an ability which prevents from being swapped, including critters? I can't say I like it.
