Battle-stones and How u get them

Postby Kithcanon » December 2nd, 2012, 6:54 am

I am trying to figure out how to get upgrade battle stones. I did too many pet battles to count since the patch and got nothing. Then when i captured a rare strider in VEB i got a Flawless Aquatic Battle-Stone. So do I need to capture a pet in order to have a chance of getting one? If not then will the type be determined buy the first pet in the battle or buy a random chance of the 3 enemy pets? Do the Flawless Battle-Stone's only drop from the bags of pet supplies or is there a chance at those from any battle?
So If you post a reply then I would like to know how you got a battle-stone, if you needed to capture a pet or not and what type of stone you got vs what pets you fought.

*Yes I have read all the patch notes on this subject but some of them are vague. So I am trying to collect some info on this

- Flawless Aquatic Battle-Stone
- Battle vs lvl 24 Rare Eternal Strider,i don't remember the back line pets
- captured the strider
- Used on Sea Pony

You know, this is an extremely small sample size but I've also done many battles and the only stone I got was from capturing an ooze in borean tundra. Wonder if there's anything to this theory about having to capture a pet in order to receive a stone. I guess as more data comes in it will be easier to tell.

to clear things up:

i got stones from pet supply sac (2x), killing (1x) and capturing (1x) pets.

i got a flawless battle stone from killing a pet, was higher level than mine tho.
i got a class specific battle stone from capturing a pet.
and two class specific stones from the pet supply sacs.

hope that helps.

I've only ever received a stone from a wild pet battle, when I captured a Snowy Owl. (level 16) Can't remember the secondaries.
But I've also been battling non-stop lately, and have received nothing for defeating the opponents. :(

Logically, I would think you could get a stone from defeats; the per-requisite for capturing one seems a bit odd, because that would rely on players having enough space to capture (even though the limit is 650 now).
But it's not happened to me yet, so I can't really say. ;)

I hope people screenshot some looting of stones, might clear things up. :!:

well there is not much to screenshot, after killing or capturing wild pets, you hear a coin sound and see the stone in your loot chat.

then, similar to a captured pet, you see the stone icon popping up on your screen. tho the last part could be part of my countless battle pet addons. :)

I've gotten four stones from just defeating wild battle pets and two from daily bags so far. Three were dragon stones from the wild cloud serpent hatchlings in Jade Forest and one was a flawless general stone from the oily slimelings in Borean Tundra. The daily bags gave me an undead and an aquatic stone.

I got 2 aquatic battle stones from killing turtles/otters in Valley of the Four Winds.

What i'm curious about is that the patch notes mentioned "defeating higher level opponents increases the chances of obtaining a stone." Does that mean simply that high level pets have a higher chance of rewarding stones, or does it mean that if my pets got a difficulty bonus there's a higher chance?

that's the big question, logic would suggest it means level 25 pets have a higher chance to drop stones, otherwise everyone would farm stromwind rats, but who knows. :)

Go find out :) Station one alt near a vendor that sells a pet that could take out a lvl2 or 3 pet, buy 3 of it as lvl1, learn em, log out, log in on an alt parked the appropriate pet-farming-place-with-easy-to-kill-pets, and kill em until all 3 have dinged, remove the pets from your journal, repeat the process. ;)
