Unique Pet Locations

Postby Jetstream » December 2nd, 2012, 3:06 pm

Hey, I've been searching about and I haven't found anything. Is there a list, somewhere, of pets that are only found in one place?

I'm rolling lowbie alliance toons, trying to collect the unique-to-starting-area pets, since they have level 95 guards and I don't wanna try to avoid them on my main. Just wanted to have a quick resource for figuring out if I"ve tapped an area out or not.

You can search by zone now in the pet journal, so what I do is type in the zone name, and then exclude all pets except pets from battles. Then it should be easy enough to look through the pets on the short list to see whether or not they also spawn elsewhere.

Here's a list of pets that are unique to a zone, including starter areas. I haven't updated it with the newest patch 5.1 companions yet, but those are also unique to their respective zones.

Much like GormanGhaste mentioned, you can search in the Pet Journal for a zone and it will show the pets in that area. Or you can do a search on WarcraftPets for zone specific companions. :)

You can also try MiniPetQ, an addon that can list in a window all pets found in your current zone or any other zone. Will list ones you have and have not found and flag ones that are only found in one zone. You can even filter it so you can see such things as which zones still have just blue upgrades, etc.

Thanks, I really like the addon (MiniPetQ)...especially since I wrote it. ;)

It originally started back in Cata as a simple way of selecting favorite pets from broker menus to display. It's grown quite a bit with MoP and pet battles, and has lots of ways to sort and see pet collections, and track what you still need. I love being able to see what zones still have rares I need to collect, and to also easily be able to see duplicates.

I've never advertised it outside my guild and friends, but it's been on curse for a while now.
