Today I have a small update on the current development of wow-petguide.com.
- Displaying strategies is certainly the key aspect of the page. Yet all new features of the last year were accessories to that. Cool ones, like the collection viewer, but not hitting the core ... continue reading
Yesterday my web space provider performed a scheduled maintenance on wow-petguide.com. Some might have noticed the downtime of a few hours. It was indeed scheduled, but I messed up the times and thought it's next week.
- Sorry for the lack of information about it, but ... continue reading
Today is the last day of 2017 and oh boy, what a year it has been! So much new content for us pet battlers. We saw the first pet battle dungeons with the Wailing Caverns and Deadmines, dozens of new pets throughout the year, and a whole new set of family challenges with the ... continue reading
If you ever considered one of those shop pets, now might be a good time to revive those thoughts.
- Blizzard activated a large Winter Veil sale that will last until January 3rd with many pets and also mounts reduced by to 50%!
- <a href="continue reading
For a short time only - since November - it is possible to register an account with Xu-Fu. And now, less than two months later, a first milestone is reached: please join me in congratulating Tovenaar for being user number 1000!
- It happened much faster than I expected. ... continue reading
As written, it's broken. You don't need to burn round 3 bringing in your Corrupted Blood, it's automatically there at the start of round 3 because the recluse died on round 2.
- So starting with the Ooze Touch that's currently written for round 4, ... [continue reading]
This does not require fast frogs. I just did this with three frogs that were all slower breeds. I did go for Power breeds as much as possible, e.g. the second one was a P/P Yellow Bellied Bullfrog. Even though the first one ate the Antaen Cannon on the first round, the second ... [continue reading]
Agreed. I tried with a B/B Cogblade Raptor and it failed. Replaced it with a S/S raptor, and it worked first time. The reason for this is that S/S is the only breed that's faster than Shadeflicker, and can therefore actually connect with Batter. If you're slower, ... [continue reading]
I used the Darkmoon Hatchling this time around (to get the chieve) with abilities Trample, Screech, Flock...start with Screech, then Trample, and then Flock, (dies during)...swap to Lucky Quilen Cub and use Bite twice Lucky dies), bring in Locust use Hiss, then Scratch...took a ... [continue reading]
Not sure if this quest changed or not but on a different WQ I didn't get credit having my Bloodgazer in the third slot. Quest reads "Must be at your side before you begin the fight and must be the first to enter battle."
- With it first didn't have any luck ... [continue reading]
Ha, after getting back around to this WQ, I realized what I did wrong....using the "Find Similar" in Rematch, I failed to notice the type change...oops :P Would explain why the achievement wasn't credited...lol
Like Zarria wrote fight didn't go as advertised. Thornclaw didn't survive to Gnaw but Mudcalf easily finished the fight. Didn't get quest credit though. Don't know if Bloodgazer has to actually fight or not. Just reread quest. Says Bloodgazer has to be by ... [continue reading]
Neben den ganzen netten Sachen die gesagt wurde und den ich mich anschließen kann würde ich mir über eine ganze Rematch datei freuen vor allem für die Haustier Instanzen.
Ich erstelle mir die alle einzeln und dann mit den Notizen von der Seite aber das dauert sehr lange und ist mühsam.
Gratulation zum Erfolg! Schön zu lesen, dass die Seite dabei helfen konnte.
Wir versuchen möglichst auf die Notwendigkeit bestimmter Breeds zu verzichten. Da das nicht immer möglich ist, findet man in den Notizen über dem Ablauf meist einen Hinweis darauf, wenn doch ein bestimmter Breed notwendig sein sollte.
Aranesh arbeitet aber auch schon an einer übersichtlicheren Darstellung. :)
ich möchte die Gelegenheit nutzen und mich auf diesem Wege vielmals für diese schöne Seite bedanken. Besonders die automatischen Checklisten und der Turnier-Planer gefallen mir sehr. Bei mir ist die Seite fast täglich im Einsatz.
Hallo Jilanra! Danke für das sehr liebe Feedback :-)
Die alten Trainer planen wir derzeit nicht einzufügen, da man sie mit so ziemlich jedem Stufe 25 Team sehr einfach besiegen kann. Dank der Garnison bekommt man auch super schnell das erste Stufe 25 Haustier und kann mit ein, zwei Einkäufen im Auktionshaus das erste Team aufbauen.
Hallo liebes Xu-Fu's Pet Guide´s - Team danke für die Vielfalt an Strategien und Kämpfen, die Guides haben mir sehr sehr oft aus der Patsche geholfen Respekt an jeden der hier schweiß und Blut hinein investiert hat macht weiter so.
ich bin neu hier und möchte mich ganz herzlich für die tolle Webseite bedanken, welche mir sehr geholfen hat. Vor allem, wie oben schon gesagt, endlich mal ne Seite auf deutsch. Ohne viel weitere Worte: vielen Dank
auch von mir ein riesiges Danke für diese Seite.
Sie hat mir auch auf Englisch schon geholfen (mit einem weiteren Fenster auf, um zu gucken wie die Casts und Pets denn nun auf Deutsch heissen), aber so ist es doch deutlich angenehmer.
Und ja: ich mag das Design sehr; sowohl die Farben als auch die Navigation.
Ganz grosses Kino.
Macht bitte genau so weiter.
vielen Dank für eure ganzen Mühen die Webseite auch ins Deutsche zu übersetzen. Ich kenn die Webseite schon länger (allerdings tu ich mir als ältere Generation nicht so einfach manchmal...) und bin nun überglücklich über diese Erweiterung.
Allgemein find ich die Webseite super handlich und übersichtlich gestaltet. Wenn ihr das in eurer Freizeit macht, bzw. diese dafür opfert, Hut ab, ihr habt meinen tiefsten Respekt das so kontinuierlich durchzuziehen und dann auch noch nebenher zu erweitern.
Macht bitte immer weiter so, die Haustierkämpfer auf der ganzen Welt danken es euch. :-)
vielen Dank für deinen Kommentar. Es freut mich sehr zu lesen, dass dir die deutsche Version der Seite gefällt und hilft. Genau aus diesem Grund ist die investierte Zeit ein Hobby und keine Arbeit, denn solche Kommentare zeigen am Ende, dass es sich gelohnt hat.
I wanted to say thank you to Aranesh, the development team, and all the kind contributors at Xu Fu for these amazing strategies. Pet battling became so complicated and frustrating solo. There is no way I could have accomplished what I did without your efforts.
It saddens me that people such as yourselves, who receive no money for your work, have done more for my success in WoW pet ventures than the Blizzard company itself. Blizzard takes in $12-15 US each month, and has received hundreds of dollars from me over the years. Yet after years of financial and personal commitment to their products, Blizzard cares nothing about my success in their world, particularly when it comes to pet battles and pet collections. Low drop rates, unspoken pet spawning times, and useless customer service help ticket responses pushed me away from the game. If Blizzard had even 20% of the passion for WoW fans that Xu Fu staff demonstrates, I might have stayed. They do not, and I doubt they ever will. As a result of this, I am leaving WoW with no plans to return.
Xu Fu was one of the pest parts of my WoW journey. You all listened to the community, took feedback under advisement, and constantly sought to improve both the user interface and site content. You linked with other sites and we're not threatened by criticism. Cheers to you, Aranesh, and all the other staff. All the best to you in your current and future ventures. Thank you.
I was very moved by your words, and it took me a while to find the right words. I hope I found them now: Thank you. Thank you for your immense praise towards me and all Xu-Fu contributors. You are right, passion for WoW and all its pets is the driving force behind this page.
Your words for Blizzard are quite harsh, and I do not intend to defend them, that's not my place and not my task ^^ I met a number of their employees over time, and for those individuals, I can vouch that their passion for this game is at least equal to my own.
If that were not the case, most likely I would not invest my own passion into this project myself.
Be that how it may, I am glad to have been part of the positive side for you, and wish you also all the best for yourself!
Minor addition suggestion though: Since the site has my pet collection info AND needed pets/levels for strategies, I'd love if it suggested which pets I should level, increase quality of and/or obtain next based on which is used the most in strategies.
Like just from my browsing, it seems the recommended pet for me to obtain would be the Zandalari Anklebiter.
That will come. Not too soon I'm afraid. The collection import is quite young and was the last big feature I added. Next up the battle tables will use it as well and show you which strategy you have the pets for and which not. Your suggestion will come afterwards :-)
The page was never designed for mobile :S Just recently I edited the menu to be more mobile friendly. You should see a "Menu" button that expands into the actual menu when tapping on it.
Can you please tell me what device you are using?
I only came across this site in legion, but I wanted to say a massive thank you! Your site is amazing and thanks to your info, I have been able to get my family familiar and family fighter achievements. Highly recommend!
I just recently stumbled upon this site and I'm legitimately miserable that I didn't know about it sooner. I normally just default to WoWhead, but not anymore! I love this site so much. It's so crisp and clean and well put together. There's so much love put into this site it really makes me happy! Thank you to everyone who put so much into it. I hope I have the funds to donate one day to help support it. You guys deserve all that and more!
- Sincerely; a super appreciative user :P
I really like the upvote option for posts. It should save a lot of, "Me, too" and "You're right" posts (yep, I'm as guilty as anyone). I'm wondering however, if you've considered offering the option to upvote the Strategy Alternatives themselves. Most of the strategies have worked wonderfully for me, and I'd like to share that with other site users without cluttering up things with a "worked well" post. Now, I'm sure that you don't need any more projects on your plate, but it's something that popped into my mind and thought I'd throw it out there. Loving the new site more each day. Thanks again for all of your hard work.
In fact, votes for the individual strategies are already on the roadmap :D There's a few smaller things I want to get done before that. The next update (pretty soon, I'm more than halfway done with that) will add the legion ready checker functionality to all pages. When you are logged in and go to any section, the tables there will automatically check against your collection and tell you what pets you're missing. After that I will do some really smaller stuff, but then I want to rework the battle tables to include more info. Mainly what breeds are required, what pets the enemy has, upvote option (^^) and some more stuff.
Love the new features. The upvote thing especially. =D one thing though - when a new comment it posted it seems to upvote it automatically. While I AM always right - it feels kinda weird having that happen. =P <3 keep up the great work fellow battlers and collectors. =)
Hey thanks a lot ! :D
The initial upvote is intended, it's your own! I went with the assumption that you (as the poster of a comment) are indeed right, and would of course upvote your own comment. Wouldn't have posted it otherwise, right? ^^
I just read another user's post about donations vs. advertisements, and I'm wondering if it would it be possible to put your "Donate" button in the header of your site as part of the menu? If folks arrive here from a search engine and land on the tamers' pages or in another area of the site, they won't see the button unless they go exploring and happen upon the homepage.
In the header/menu, It would be more visible and easily accessible, but I don't think that most of us would find it obtrusive or offensive. Most of us understand that it takes money as well as an incredible amount of time to support a website, especially one as diverse and dynamic as Xu-Fu's Pet Guide. Just my two-coppers' worth.
Thank you for a great site catering to all of us pet-battle lovers. Looking forward to Xu-Fu 2.0!
Thank you so much for your encouraging words :-)
I'm having a lot of fun working on Xu-Fu and the little ad at the bottom is covering the server costs, there's no direct need in making some profit or putting the donation button on a more prominent place. But you're right of course, it would be way more effective on the top menu or somewhere visible from everywhere.
Something to consider later on, and I do have a couple of ideas ;-)
A possible idea for the site... I do like the basic common-pet strategies, but I'd also like to see alternative strats that cater more to leveling and/or speed. I was thinking perhaps your format would work well for this, with tags added - how reliable users found it, average number of rounds, useful for leveling or not, requires rare pets... that kind of thing.
Nonetheless, I do very much appreciate this site :)
Thanks for your comment :-) It's a very good idea. Something similar to this is on my feature plan already but I like the idea of tags. There are many things that need to be done first, though. It will take a good while before I can jump onto this. In time it will come :-)
