Pet Menagerie

Postby Belpha » November 27th, 2014, 8:37 pm

So, as an avid pet collector and altoholic, I thought the pet menagerie would be an awesome building, but was alittle disappointed to see that the displayed pets were based on your favorites, thus I'm only able to display the one set of pets. My alts aren't able to display their own pet collections.

Has anyone found an addon or some such way to make this possible? I did find an addon that made favorite mounts per character, so I'd think it's possible. But I've yet to find something on my own, so I'm turning to my fellow pet collectors!

I have pets that aren't on my favorites pop up all the time! I think it just heavily favors your favorites.

For gameplay reasons, I have only two pets on my favorite so pets spawn in a random fashion.

I wish the system worked differently though, I was so looking forward to be able to select a thematic family of pets for each of my alts depending on their class/proffession/race combination.

I don't have the menagerie yet, but I wonder how it will work for me. I have almost every unique pet "favourited" in my journal, because I like sometimes getting a little surprise when pressing my /rfp hotkey. It'll just display a selection of a very few out of the hundreds of favourites I guess.

It always picks from Favorites first. If you have more than the limit for favorites, I think it is 10, then it will just randomly pick from those favorite pets. If you don't have the favorites at the max then it will take all your favorites and add random pets from the rest of your collection.

  • Lots more alts though not near what Doob has... haha

I have a lvl 2 storehouse as well in my mains garrison, along with the lvl 2 menagerie, and it may increase the number of pets wandering about as I seem to have hordes of pets patrolling my garrison ever since i upgraded the storehouse.

I was really looking forward to this as well! Not to mention, my daughter is seriously miffed over it as, since we share a Battlenet account, we're stuck with the same favourites list ... I'm a human pally and she's an undead rogue and she REALLY objects to all my "cute and fluffy" pets in her garrison! :lol:

Could I have the name of that addon please?! For the reasons above I'd love to have it.
