Having sky lantern trouble? guild pets thread too

Postby Tekulve2012 » May 21st, 2014, 8:31 am

Hey folks

So if you are in guild on both Alliance and Horde side on different realms, and you have these 'pets', does this mean a person with only 2 of them (presuming your collections are equal otherwise) will have a better pet score?

My guild pages and heralds are still showing as needing to be upgraded even though i know at least 2 are rare...maybe I'm remembering wrong and I didnt upgrade them but I have lots of stones and will check later. In the meantime, I wondered if a person had 2 of these at rare would your pet score be different than if you had 4 at rare?

The alliance and horde versions should count separately towards your score but they are one of those bugged pets where the armory doesn't show their correct quality so that affects warcraft pets too.

If you mean 2 Alliance Guild Pages and 2 Alliance Guild Heralds (both rare quality), no, a person's score would not increase versus a player with one rare quality Alliance Guild Page/Guild Herald. Duplicates aren't included in your WarcraftPets pet score (more information on pet score can be found here).

However, if you are referring to the fact that the Guild Page and Guild Herald can come in two sets, Horde and Alliance, then yes, I do believe that owning each of those companions will add a little boost to your score.

As Kpb321 mentioned though, the WoW armory still doesn't show the correct quality for pets that don't battle. Rather than showing the quality of the pet as it is listed in your Pet Journal, it shows the quality of the item that teaches the pet.

On top of that, for some reason it only recognizes the original pet quality (uncommon) for non-battling pets, so even if you've upgraded a Guild Page or Herald to rare in-game using a battlestone, it won't count in the armory. This causes all kinds of strange import behavior, leading to non-battling pets being listed as uncommon on WarcraftPets.

TLDR; The quality of the Guild Page and Guild Herald won't have any real effect on your pet score (for now).

Sidenote: We're conducting an on-going experiment of sorts with automatically upgrading everyone's Argent Squire/Grunt (non-battling companions) to rare quality. Breanni explains it here. You may not need to worry about the quality of your Guild Heralds and Guild Pages in the end. But that's still something we're working on and considering. :)

Part of the reason I asked was that I noticed in the pet stats that the % of uncommon and % of rare are listed. Consequently, in my pets to upgrade section I have 4 guild pets since i have a pair in each faction.

Those who only run guild pets in one faction would then have a "% of rares" advantage in their collection.

( I'm basing this on the % # of pets that this site's collection page tells me I still need to upgrade)

Sorry if it seems I'm being obtuse but I've set a goal to get to a pet score of 3000 and I presume every bit helps.

Having both the Alliance and Horde versions will help your score but stoning them won't matter.

I think the Sky Lantern isn't in the score anymore. Mine just dropped a little when I updated it as well!

Oh Sky Lantern, when will you be fixed? :(

You should be able to add the Sky Lantern manually to your collections now, please let us know if you still run into problems with this pet.

My Sky Lantern has disappeared from my collected list, as well. I don't see it as a manual add option. When I look it up and click "Got it", I get the Armory says you don't have it" message... even tho I logged back in, summoned it and logged totally out of game.

Interestingly, Armory does not show it in either my collected or in my uncollected lists.

I tried to repurchase it, but there is no option to release it and I am unable to have more than one... at least that's what it told me when I tried to add another one.

note: even tried renaming it to see if that might cause it to register. no soap.

Have you tried adding it to your collection on the Update Pet Collection page? Below the Reimport Pets button, there should be a section where you can manually check the Sky Lantern as collected. It's currently showing for me -- let us know if it's not appearing for you and we'll look into it.

It does not appear there for me, atm, Q. Only Dread Hatchling and Treasure Goblin appear. It should be in the same section that they are in, right?

Hello Quintessence
I have the same sky lantern addition issue. I have updated my collection a few times and no go. I have the Treasure Goblin as a possible manual add on ...but no Sky Lantern. :cry:

Thanks if the admin gets a chance to look into it 8-)

Yes, it should appear in the same section as the Dread Hatchling and Treasure Goblin. I've sent in an inquiry about the missing option for the Sky Lantern, so hopefully we'll have this resolved soon.

Try checking again now. Somehow it got retoggled as available through Armory import. But I changed it back to a manual addition. It should be available as such beneath the button to import your collection.
