Got my first battle stone (magic variety) and upgraded my beloved Enchanted Broom!

I have been grinding a lot of these over the last few days to level up a bunch of low level pets. The only rare Arcane Eye I have yet fought (and captured) was level 16 (you can see in my collection that it is still 16). All others I have seen were 17 or 18 as the database says.
Edit: Sorry, didn't realize pets in this level range lose a level when tamed.
That's exactly what I did, but it took more than 30 tries to get the rare -- I couldn't believe how many uncommons I found! They spawn at the farm fields and a new one would pop almost immediately after I killed one, so I didn't have to run around much.
On the other hand, I decided to pick up a snake while in Westfall, and the second one I battled was a rare. I swear the RNG knows which pets I really want, and teases me with the ones I don't really care about. :)
