Cancelling tamer quests an exploit?

Postby Azrile » July 24th, 2013, 2:27 pm

Usually they say that if you need to ask the question, then it is an exploit. But here goes.

What do you think? You complete a battle against a Panda tamer, then cancel the quest, switch out a pet, and do it again with a different pet. There are a few tamers in Pandaran where I currently use a lvl 10 pet.. but I never thought of cancelling and doing it multiple times in the same day.

Once you've completed the quest, you can't abandon it anymore... I accidently completed one today without using my boosting pet... wanted to do it over, but couldn't :)

No, you abandoned the quest after you finish the fight, but before you turn in the quest.

Edit - Nevermind. You are correct... I just tried it in game.. and just ´completing´the quest makes it so you can´t abandon it.

Apparently, you were able to do that when pet battling first came out but they closed that pretty quickly. Unfortunately, I was too busy gearing up and questing to take advantage of that myself. If it was still open, I would have every pet at level 25 just doing Valley's tamer over and over again for a day.

Yes, that "clever use of mechanics" went on for a little while and as usual, it was fun while it lasted, then got fixed.

You can't get credit for a quest in a raid group. I was able to get pet XP twice from Aki when I accepted an LFR invite the same second as I won the fight. I had to redo it after the LFR because the quest wasn't completed, but the carry pet got XP for both fights.

So, yes, I think you should be able to fight a trainer multiple times while in a raid group. But I haven't tried it as I think the reward from a trainer without the bag (just pet XP) is not worth my time.

I may or may not have noted that in a corner of my head for possible future use.

I've had that happen but only when the fight was over the second I was put into LFR. If I'm just waiting in a raid group before a normal raid, I have no problem doing tamers, so pretty sure you get credit in a raid group. Its just buggy when a queue pulls you out of a battle right at the last second.

Yes, I've experienced the same with pet battle queue and BG queue.
