So the pet battle system is now up a running and many have gone out and started battling and collecting pets from all over Azeroth and beyond in the Outlands. However, if you're like me then you might have noticed some, er, bumps along the way.
Example one: Cassandra Kaboom <Master Pet Tamer>
Now when I looked at this NPC in game I saw her and the 3 pets she'd challenge me with hopping in a circle around her. They were all mechanical and according to what I could see by clicking on them
lvl 11 elites. However, when I stated the fight I soon discovered this was not so, they are in fact lvl 13. Also, the mechanical Rabbit she had seemed, well really buggy. For 4 turns it tied to attack me and missed. For 4 turns I tried to attack it and missed. I had a lvl 11 crocolisk at the time. It was, frustrating to say the least as my crocolisk had NEVER missed that many time in a fight before, much less in a row like that. She beat me 5 times before I could finally beat her. And that was with my crocolisk at lvl 14 and 2 elementals about lvl 10 (one rare, one uncommon). Even then, I was down to one pet at 10 hit points. It was crazy. The constant misses were absurd. I know she's a master and all but really, it shouldn't take me at least 2 turns to land one hit on one of her pets.
Example 2: Tiny Twister
After my horrible first defeat at the oil stained hands of Cassandra Kaboom I decided to look for some more elementals to add to my team since my Ruby Sapling
did very poorly. I found a uncommon Tiny Twister and, though it's moves were all air, liked it and decided it would be worth a shot. I soon found, however, that one of its attacks seemed a bit bugged: cyclone
. For some reason when I used this attack the twister that would form would get stuck on the opposing pet and thus I would get stuck in mid battle. I couldn't switch pets because an attack was going, nor could I forfeit the match. The first time it happened I figured it was lag and logged out. However, when I battled later and the same thing happened again. This time I waited. After about 30 seconds it finally processed the attack. I continued battling and several minutes later it did it again. This time I was frustrated and decided to experiment. I wanted to see if the game itself was freezing and clicked my character portrait at the side of the battle bar. My character info popped up and as soon as it did the twister got unstuck. I ended up doing this again several times whenever the twister looked like it was having an issue and thus far it's worked.
Example 3: The bugged wandering battle pets.
So I was in the Hinterlands lvling when I saw this little maggot crawling on the hill and wanted to battle it. But, try as I may, I couldn't get in a battle with it because the battle field was obscured. I figured maybe it was all the trees nearby so I moved away from them. Nope didn't change anything. I began circling the beast trying over and over. Finally I got it and, well, it turned out it was nowhere near where it appeared to be. It was below me, somehow. Also my character fought it backwards. It was actually pretty funny to watch my character toss a trap backwards.
Anyhow these are some of my experiences, have any of you had anything like this occur. Also where you able to find a solution like I did with clicking my character profile to get the cyclone attack to work.
