Wolpertinger help.

Postby Zaryna » February 16th, 2015, 10:28 pm

Hey folks. Huge lurker, but I have been beating my head against the wall to figure this one out and hope you can help. I bought a Wolpertinger off of the AH and gave it to someone and they can't add it to their collection. They don't already have it, so what am I missing? Never ran into this before.

Thanks in advance!

That's odd. If they don't already have it then it can't be because they already have the max number allowed... the only other thing I can think of is did you buy them a lvl 25? If they don't have a level 25 pet of their own already then they wouldn't be able to uncage what you bought them.

The Wolpertinger have been sold by a (world event) vendor for 50s the last 5-6 years... Why buy it from AH?

Even if it's just a level 2 pet, if they haven't leveled any pets to whatever level it is, they can't learn it. Happened when my husband got a gifted level 4 pet. (I did a few pet battles for him so he could learn it).

This pet is only available during the Brewfest event. While you can wait till it is offered again, it would be 7 months or so before you can get it. It's probably pretty cheap on AH though, since people acquire them every year and flood the AH with them. I myself have 3 or 4 on an alt not being used.

As for not adding the pet to a collection, I would say the only reason I know of is what Taerie said, if the pet level is higher than your current collection highest pet you can't add the new pet. Either pick up a level 1 or wait till they have earned an equivalent level pet in their collection. (PS if you want a level 1 I can give you one, just let me know)

  • Morlïs Horde Madoran 100 Beast Master Hunter (main account)
  • Vandì Horde Madoran 100 Arcane Mage (alt account)
  • Lots more alts though not near what Doob has... haha

Yeah, but one would think, that semi-serious pet collectors had obtained the Wolpertinger years ago, since it's so easily available (two weeks a year)..

Eh, not everyone has started collecting pets at the same time. Maybe they're new to it so that's why they haven't gotten it yet. :D

They could be a new player with a new account. It might be that they are just now getting interested in pet collecting and battles. Perhaps this person didn't play years ago. Perhaps they weren't active during Brewfest. These things happen often - we didn't all start collecting pets at the same time and we didn't all start playing WoW at the same time.

As for the Wolpertinger that you kindly purchased for your friend - I'd suggest the same thing others are saying here. Maybe the Wolpertinger is higher level than the other pets their own and therefore they aren't able to learn it yet. If you need a level 1 to try I have one you are welcome to.

I have played since beta on and off but have only just got into battles and collecting (because of the garrison), Never heard of the Wolpertinger until the other day and saw it on the AH for a few gold so bought it as it looked unusual and didnt want to await brewfest.

Yea, that. Why would you wait a whole year for a pet, when you can pick it up for next to nothing from the AH? :)

This is pretty cynical and rather rude, to be honest. Personally only started playing WoW at all in the past two years, and over various small breaks, have never even seen the Brewfest active. It happens. Especially when people have lives. I never picked up the Creepy Crate this past Halloween event, but I collect pets quite seriously. Old time collectors with 650+ pets are still acquiring newer type 'easy' pets all the time, evident by the wall posts on this site daily. Don't assume things about other players around the world just because you personally have accomplished it.
