Pets becoming rare during fights

Postby Tapo » December 12th, 2012, 3:29 pm

Hi All,

With my first team, my 3 pets became rare at level 13 or 15, I do not remember, by themself. I have not gave them any stone.
Did you had the same experience with some green pet that you have up?

My first team waas:
Crimson Whelpling P/S
Disgusting Oozeling H/B
Magical Crawdad H/H
They are still displayed as "white" (but they are green) in the armory, but all are blue in my codex.

Is it automatic past a level?
maybe it depends on the number of fight, or number of fights you win?

Please, let me know.

thanks

Those three were always rares. Prior to patch 5.1, the default UI gave no indication of this. There were, however, several addons which would properly display the rarity of all pets you owned. With the release of 5.1, rarity is displayed on the border of any pet in your journal and for wild pets, it is also displayed on the pet's journal screen.

The quality shown in the armory is for the pet item, not the quality of the pet itself. Wild pets will show up on the armory as the same quality in your Pet Journal because there's no item that "teaches" you the companion. But any pet that requires an item to learn it will only show the item quality on the armory.

Example: Magical Crawdad (pet) = rare quality
Magical Crawdad Box (item) = common (white) quality

The item quality and pet quality sometimes don't match up. You could find a blue pet item, learn it, but then find out the new companion is only uncommon in your Pet Journal. An example of this inconsistency is the Darkmoon Rabbit. The item that teaches you the rabbit is epic, but the rabbit itself is only rare quality.
