7/27 new stuff

Postby Duerma » July 27th, 2012, 11:56 pm

  • Wild pet spawning conditions are listed for some pets (ie, rain, night, summer, etc.)
  • Pets are "weakened by capture" - eg, I fought a level 23 frog, and he was knocked down to level 19 when I caught him.
  • Stats have been nerfed across the board again - if you'r using PetBattleRarity everything will show up as a gray name.
  • Can't cage most pets anymore.
  • Jade Forest is open so you can gather up the critters there now.

Bad things that I noticed in this patch:

1. You can attack and kill wild pets.
2. Hostile mobs can attack you in the middle of a battle, instantly ending it.
3. There's a bug with Leap that will freeze a battle (just like Volcano did/does)
4. There's a bug where most attacks will apply "Aquatic" to a pet (not sure if it actually works like a buff or is just a shell)

Oh yes, I noticed the aquatic thing.

Another obnoxious note - I started a pet battle by water, and it ran me into the water to do the battle - pushing my toon under the water just enough that I started drowning. I did not finish the pet battle before I died. But GOOD NEWS everyone, apparently if you drown you can finish the battle, because I still captured my pet! :lol:

Great finds everyone!

There's another new wild pet that snuck in the Pet Journal: Wanderer's Festival Hatchling. Requires the event, Wanderer's Festival.

Loving that developers are listing the special spawning conditionals. Makes updating the pet database for WarcraftPets so much easier for me! XD

Here's an example of the Pet Journal listing the spawning condition -

Yeah, now we just need to work out what "night" actually means in this context :P

The Volcano bug has been fixed! Feel free to return to Searing Gorge/Burning Steppes and capture ad nausium.

Several other abilities seem to be creating errors every once-n-a-while. Leap and Death Coil are two that I can pull off the top of my head. (What they were doing on the top of my head, I have no idea... :lol: )

The Sack of Pet Supplies now contain a junk item along with the pet supplies. The big ticket junk item appears to be the Exquisite Murloc Collar which is good for 50g (but, sadly, doesn't appear to be useable, even on Murlocs).

While I don't know what the exact conditions that cause this are, higher-level pets that you capture are "leveled-down" to the highest level of pet on your team. (i.e. you have a team with 2 level 10 pets and 1 level 9 pet. You manage to capture a level 12 pet. The level 12 pet will be "leveled down" to level 10 in your pet journal.) This is intended as there were new functions included this.

It has been my experience that each pet I capture loses 4 levels upon capture. I have a 25 and two 23s on my team and when I capture 23s they drop to 19s and when I capture 22s they drop to 18s. I have not battled in a couple of days now since I can't get battles in Pandaria to work this morning, so has something changed with the levels pets lose upon capture?

Edit: Pet battles are not working for me at all this morning. Anybody else having the same issue?

I wasn't able to get pet battles to work yesterday, either.
