Shadowlands Preparations!

PET NEWS - BY ARANESH
We've got a release date! October 27th, Shadowlands will arrive.
The Pre-Patch will likely hit a couple of weeks earlier and it will bring substantial changes to pet battling. Xu-Fu's is in the middle of preparing for this upheaval of pet battle strategies, because many of them will not work anymore and will need to be changed or even removed.

To give you the best experience through this process, we are using a phased approach outlined here:

Phase 1 - Now until Shadowlands Pre-Patch



We are going through strategies on the PTR and Beta and are adding a new color code:

  • Red: This strategy has been tested on the PTR or Beta and will not work anymore. We have left a comment on the strategy explaining the problem.
  • Yellow: The strategy has not been tested, yet. It might be OK - or not.
  • Green: The strategy has been tested and perhaps slightly adjusted. It will continue to work in Shadowlands.

You will find this information at the very top of each strategy, looking like this:



If you own a strategy that has been marked red and made adjustments to it, please reply to the comment left by us so we can re-test and update the tag.
Remember that it needs to be tested on the PTR or Beta :-)

Phase 2 - Pre-Patch



Once the changes to pet battles go live with the pre-patch, we will do the following:
  • All strategy creators who own a strategy marked in yellow or red will receive a notification
  • Creators will then have the option to change the color marker of their own strategies
  • We will keep going through strategies and updating them from our side
  • All "red" strategies will be unpublished to reduce confusion and frustration


Phase 3 - Shadowlands



On or shortly after the release of Shadowlands, we will do a full reset of the ratings and favourites of strategies.
This will be a very invasive step but we feel that it is necessary to have a fresh start in the new pet battling landscape. It will ultimately make the ratings and the associated priority system more accurate than if we carried over the previous ratings that might highlight a strategy that has become less optimal.

Have a cup of Ko-fi on me, hell have 3 or 4! This site is amazing and I appreciate the vast amount of time it must take to keep improving it and the work needed to keep it relevant into Shadowlands. Way To GO!

Thanks!! Good timing that the current donation goal is going to the volunteers, strategy curators especially, who do most of the effort to get the strategies updated :-)

The link in the "Strategy Readiness" tooltip links to the wrong news: https://www.wow-petguide.com/index.php?News=256 - while actually this news is 257 :)

Would it be possible to allow the author of a strategy to manually flag it themselves? I already know both of my published strats aren't going to survive the changes in Shadowlands.

That phase will come in Shadowlands pre-patch. If you'd like it to happen before that, leave a comment on the strat that needs to be flagged and one of the curators can flag it for you.

Can we sort our strategies by shadowlands readiness?

You can now :) I've added a column at the right showing the color of each strategy. It's not super convenient - couldn't get the filters to work properly, sorry. But it's better than nothing!

Thank you. Can color codes be added to the alternatives mouse over so we don't need to load each strat to know if it's shadowlands rdy? (edited)

Threewolves, the new indicators are on the "My Strategies" page, not the mouseover. I can see that it would be really awkward to try to showhorn in the indicators on the public mouseover list.

Yes, I was very unclear in my message, sorry.
The filter option is here: https://www.wow-petguide.com/index.php?page=strategies

The "My Strategies" sorting option is fine. Works for me. My response was regarding the alternatives mouseover on ALL strategies available for each encounter. It would be useful when choosing a strategy if a tiny red, green, or yellow indicator(or border) would accompany the mouseover flyout on alternative strategies. Thank you again.

Good point, yeah. Red ones we'll definitely unpublish with the pre-patch so people don't run into this problem. For the others, I'll have to think about what to do and if it's worth it, depending on how many strategies will be left unchecked when the prepatch hits. Either way, thanks for the suggestions!

Thank you Xu-Fu Team! Without you I likely would only collect the pets. I love to battle them but I create strategies that are much too long. Your knowledge is amazing. Thanks again.
