My first daily bag had a Mountain Panda and a Flawless Human Battle Stone.

Here's hoping the drop rate is decent on these pandas because I really don't want to have to kill all 10 of these things every day for months. The only challenge in them is having the time to travel to them and watch one or two of your pets destroy them.

Edit: Bag 2 - Vendor trash. This is going to be a grind. :(

Edit: Bag 3 - Sunfur Panda. Maybe I'll be done sooner than I thought!

So I'm planning on 3 flyers for the aquatics, 3 mechanicals for the beasts and 3 humanoids for the critters. Anything wrong with that?

I'll be tackling the Fabled Beasts tonight. :)

Is the daily defeating them all again or just one randomly?

You can pretty easily do each with 2 of each of the "strong" pets and then your favorite backup all-around pet. No point to having a carry pet, the xp is awful, at least if that was good it would make crisscrossing the continent do get all these every day not so bad.

Here's hoping the XP is a bug. If it's not, these will be a dead-end for most of us.
The only reason to keep doing tamers after getting the pets/stones is for the XP.

I am bummed one must defeat every fabled pet daily for one bag, was hoping for more chances and less time wasted flying all over the world for one loot bag.

Most of them aren't too far off the beaten path when you're doing the other Pandaria tamers.
Even so, without XP gains, they're not going to be worth the extended effort, even for a chance at panda pets.

Still, 10 for one bag each day is a little too much.
Worst thing is that the Battle Pet Teams addon isn't working at the moment.

I'm actually waiting until that addon starts working to start farming the pet dailies again, because its driving me absolutely mad. I've just been battling everything with my Jeremy Feasel team. Not that there isnt plenty to do on Isle of Thunder, and I collect pets when I'm out there, but manually switching for 11+ people daily is just not my thing.

The latest version of PetBattleTeams is working for me, however I had to delete my old teams and create new ones -- the old teams still appear in my journal but they don't work (it won't swap to that team when I click on it, and I can't swap pets in and out); the new teams I made last night are still working correctly today though.

I too was bummed out that I would have to kill all ten of the legendary pets for the daily- plus each was a fairly long slog and with the addons acting poorly. Was exciting the first time, not so much as a daily.

I was also disappointed that there wasn't any variety of elite pets- no humanoid, undead, or elemental. Just aquatics, beasts and critters are pretty boring! :cry:

Killed all 10 fabled pets with a singing sunflower, stunted shardhorn and harbinger of flame. Only 3 of them required a few tries before they went down.

Got a snowy panda from the bag yesterday, but nothing today.

XP is awful because you can fight them over and over.

But it is not even regular level 25 awful. I would still expect a low level carry pet to get more than 300xp.

I'd need to test it, but I think someone mentioned that subsequent fights on the same day don't get any XP.

It's not because there is only one pet in fight. Gained XP from elites follows the standard XP formula and in it the amount of pets in the opponent team adds up to the gain.

Except there is no reason to fight them more than once per day

I changed up my battle pet teams to breexe through these

I use Crow, Raven Jade owl for Aquatics - Darkmoon tonk, Zep & Clockwork for Beast - Stunted Shardhorn, Ravager, Snake for critters. All went down easy, no reason to carry pets cause XP blows

This will be totally over for me once all the pandas are received - Glad the snowy Dropped last night for me

Right, but there would be if they gave the same amount of XP as the other trainers.
Personally I'd also prefer only being able to fight them once per day, but with lots of XP.

Hi,

I think the reason you don't get as much XP is because there's only one pet.

From what I've seen on the forums each extra pet in a fight gives a multiplier, but since it's solo there none here.

Arve,
