•Battle Stones•

Postby Cica » November 27th, 2012, 7:25 pm

Just wondering, with the implementation of patch 5.1 today, if anyone has been able to get a Battle Stone to drop? I have been doing nothing but pet battles since the servers went up, and am beginning to question what the drop rates were.

(On a side note, I wanted to be sure I was doing it correctly, I watched a few videos and read a couple articles that said the stones were acquired by defeating wild pets in pet battles. I just want to be sure this is the case, and not something strange like from killing them with your toons and one randomly drops a stone).

I've only done around 15 battles so far but I've gotten two stones so far. A Flawless beast one from the jade forest and a Flawless critter one from the valley of the four winds.

Mrf... Pets too wussy... Need to level them more...

There a good place for Mechanical pets? I wanna upgrade my squirrel, breed IDs be damned! Unfortunately Stonetalon only has a small number of Nut Varmints, and I haven't gotten any stones so far...

Stone types are random right, we can farm any where with high level pets?

I opened 47 bags and got a human flawless and a dragon. Also will never need a stable master again...

As for the stones being random. This is the case with the bags but if you want to get a flying flawless stone you will need to battle flying pets.

Silly question, but what about the uncommon stones? I have looked at every possible vendor I can think of and have not been able to find them. I am Justice capped and just want to spend my points on something. : /

Edit : Never mind. I'm retarded. Carry on.

The uncommon stones I found at the JP vendor in Townlong at the temple near the shado-pan dailies. It should put a helmet on your map.

Battled Nishi, received ridiculously low amount of XP for my 10 lvl Ram, didn't abandon quest and received a bag of supplies after turn in. There was a stone to upgrade an undead pet.

I was very pleased after holding on to all my pet bags I got from before the patch (Although I did peak into them to make sure there were no Porcupettes). Ended up with Beast, Critter, and Humanoid stones. Although it took me awhile to figure out how to use them. Tried to use them on the Pet Journal, but realized that you have to summon the pet and use it on it then. :lol:

My Baby Blizzard Bear and Wolpertinger are very happy to have been upgraded. Not sure what I'm going to use the Humanoid stone on yet...

Imthedci,
May I suggest using it as a cheater way to get the breed ID that you want from either a Flayer Youngling or Sporeling Sprout?

Given that they have 10 potential stat combinations you could use a humanoid flawless stone as an easy way to get the exact stats you want without having to farm them for a rare combo'd with your stats of choice.

Other than that I would suggest the children's week Wolvar or Oracle pets.

I was concidering the Wolvar / Oracles pet. Will probably end up with the Oracle first (as that Wolvar likes to mouth off :lol: ).

My personal order of importance for 'stoning pets (that really doesn't sound kosher) is:
1. Non-capturable pets that cannot be caged. (e.g. Baby Blizzard Bear)
2. Non-capturable pets that can be caged. (e.g. Orphan's week pets)
3. Capturable pets.

So the epic stones do we have to catch one of the enemies or can we just beat all 3 wild pets?

I've just been beating all 3 and getting stones. But you only get the stone of the first pet.

Question: I need undead stone more than anything( need 3 of em).
How would it be most efficient to farm em?
Killing trainers daily or killing undead wilds?
And if killing wilds is effective, is it equally efficient to go around killing the level 3 undeads in tirisfal glades as killing level 12s in EPL?(If the levels of the pets I use to farm are close to the level of the pet I'm killing)

I think I can answer this question atleast, from the trainers you have a 8-12% (rough numbers, dont put too much faith in them) chance of getting any stone. You may end up doing dailies for months without seeing any undead stones. Killing undead wilds however, will not give you any other stones than just the one you need, however at a much lower rate. I guess it depends, if you have time, do both. Do the dailies, and if you got spare time, go kill undeads. This early, most people could use more than just one type of stone, so trainers would be my choice.

You could also try the auctionhouse..

There is one rare one just called flawless battle stone that is supposed to be boe, but that is it. The rest (type specific ones) are all bop. I am not sure if the boe one can come from randomly battling pets or not, it might be bag only.

Gotten a few pet supply bags, battled several wild pets (maybe 30-60 battles?)
Even gotten my first Pandaren Spirit already..

But I haven't seen a single stone yet :(

Wish I had thought of stacking up on bags before 5.1
