What 2 store pets to buy?

Postby Casstheangel » February 5th, 2015, 12:59 pm

It's my birthday tomorrow and I'm thinking about getting two store pets. I already own blossoming ancient, Lil rag and brew pup. Just wondering which pets are good for battling right now :) thanks x

Pandaren Monk is an useful choice, but its NOISY!

My vote is the Pandaran Monk and Lil Rag.

I honestly do not think there are that many very truly well built Dragonkin killers out there other than Bonkers and the Monk. Sure there are pets that have maybe one ability strong against Dragonkin. But across the board strong against Dragonkin the Monk and Bonkers I have found are the best. The Monk has a 2-hit setup that can take out some of the Dragonkins over in Pandarian Tamers.

And one only needs to look at the home page and the top 5 battle pet ratings to see Lil Rag is rated #5. To pass on that for a pet that is rated lower is just crazy.

Hey thanks :) I already own Lil rag, apart from the monk are there any others you'd recommend. Not heard much about argi? Wondering how that fares? X

If it's strictly for its battle abilities I'd pick up a Lil' XT. The breed on it (H/P) is slightly better IMO than the Landro's Lil XT (P/B) and I use it for both the Uldum and Krasarang Wild tamer dailies, as well as wild battle grinding on beast types (i.e. Icespine Hatchlings in FFR).

I've always had a soft spot for the Soul of the Aspects. More from a PvP perspective than a PvE one mind you, since tamer battles are mostly 'solved' already and there are tons of optimum pets for those purposes.

Deflection, Sunlight, and Solar Beam is a pretty interesting toolkit to have on a dragonkin pet that you won't find on any other pet in the game.

It gives it a lot of unique options like Sunlight self-synergy with the dragonkin racial, and being able to kill mechanicals through their battle rez racial with a dragonkin racial boosted Solar Beam (second hit will nail them after they rez, it splits its damage like a multi-hit attack).

My S/S Flayer Hatchling does a good job of tearing apart Dragonkin, especially in PvP. With Blitz, Deflect, and Kick, it tends to take out most dragons before they know what hit them.

As far as store pets go, I have no strong opinions, but the Cinder Kitten is adorable.

Lil' XT is definitely the best store pet you can buy which you can actually use it in PVE or PVP.

Other than that, there are 2 very good "money can buy" pets if you can afford.

The CE pet of burning crusade : Nether whelp.

The CE pet of WLK : Frosty

Both are excellent PVE and very strong in PVP also.

I'm going to second both Lil' XT and Pandaren Monk.

We're talking store pets, not CE pets. ;)

I only have Argi because it was the donation pet for Ebola. He's still at level 19, The Altrac Pup is actually lower.

I don't know why I didn't get Lil KT, for some bizarre reason I thought it was Mechanical. But looking at the specs it could be a nice sub for thsoe who don't have an Unborn Val'kyr.

I know I used my Flayer for one of the early rounds for when I did my first Celestials but was not overly impressed with it in general. I personallly think powerwise that Bonkers and Pandaran Monk just pack more of a wallop than the Flayer Hatchling. But then again when I looked at the Flayer Youngling stats on this page I noticed that mine is H/H which I suspect is why I'm not overly impressed. I think if I had an S/S Flayer then it's usuability would go up in my book - getting the first hit is always a huge advantage! Guess I'm heading to Outland tonight!

Lil' XT. I'm leveling pets as I grind out the 2000 wins for the monument up in FFR. Swap to him from leveling pet and Heartbroken + Tantrum wrecks most teams up there.

If anything, Lil' XT is fabulous for getting rid of those wretched Train Sets. :D

He is, but you don't really have to worry about the train sets any more, as it seems they nerfed the "choo choo" thing anyway.

From fighting abilities stand point the ones already mentioned are good.

From a collectors standpoint I would consider Wind Rider Cub or Gryphon Hatchling, sometimes not available because the Plush part of the package runs out of stock. When it is out of stock it can take months to come back into stock. Sometimes so long that people start to look for them on Ebay and other sites like that. Of course you will pay much more for them there though.

Both plushies that came with mine still sit on my daughters bed after 3+ years.
  • Morlis Alliance Kael'Thus 100 Shadow Priest (main account)
  • 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

I was thinking of getting the Collectors ones but I'm in the uk and not sure how long they would take to come? I ordered argi just to see what he's like and for his cuteness, but I may order some more tonight :)

I am not sure about the UK, but in the US you can order within the game now and it is delivered immediately. I have bought my last couple that way and prefer it to using the web-based store now.

Get Lil X.T. That pet has been useful as ever with its tympanic tantrum!
