Improving rarity of pets

Postby Bindibear » October 5th, 2012, 6:46 pm

From the 5.1 pre-PRT notes on MMO-champion:

"Pet Battles Improvements
Several UI and other improvements will be added to the Pet Battles system, including a way to upgrade the rarity of pets that you’ve captured."

I wonder how this will be done... maybe level a pet to 25 and you can opt to drop it back to level 1 and improve it's quality level? If so that would be really cool. Anyone else have an idea how this might be achieved?

I like your idea Kalium.

In my opinion this feature should be an alternative to farming are pets but still challenging in the same way, not an easier one.

I was wondering if it'll be a drop item from the Pet Battle dallies. With a low drop chance of course.

The way it's going to be done has been confirmed to be items that drop rarely from pet battles. There will be two stones. One to upgrade up to uncommon and another to rare. It seems that they will sometimes have restrictions such as for pets in the undead family only.

Personally, I can't wait! n.n

I've been wondering, Because I captured a giraffe calf but he is only grey, and I can't ever find another one and was hoping to upgrade him! <3

A new item has been introduced that can be used to upgrade the quality of Battle Pets: Battle-stones.
◦Battle-stones are available in two basic types, general purpose Battle-stones that can be used to upgrade the quality of any pet, and family specific Battle-stones, which can only be used to upgrade pets of a specific pet family.
◦Battle-stones are available in two qualities: Flawless Battle-stones can upgrade pets directly to Rare quality, while Polished Battle-stones will upgrade a pet to Uncommon quality.
◦Players will have a very small chance to obtain a general purpose Flawless Battle-stone after winning a match against wild pets; defeating higher level opponents increases the chances of obtaining a stone. These valuable items are not soulbound, and can be sold on the Auction House.
◦Family specific Flawless Battle-stones can be found in the Sack of Pet Supplies obtained from performing Pet Trainer quests, and are Bind on Pickup.
◦General purpose Polished Battle-stones can be purchased for 1000 Justice Points.
