We’ve been receiving a few inquiries over Twitter and through email regarding Farmer Nishi, so we thought we’d share our thoughts on Pet Battle experience gains with you.
We will soon be applying a hotfix that causes level-25 pets to no longer “steal” experience from your lower-level pets. Previously, if you had a level-3 and level-25 pet grouped together for a battle, the XP earned would be shared between the two at the end. This resulted in some players doing what they could to kill off their level-25 pet so the level-3 pet would get all of the experience. You no longer need to worry about this as the level-3 pet will now receive 100% of the XP that’s earned, so long as it has participated in at least one round of combat.
With max-level master trainer dailies available for Northrend, Cataclysm, Pandaria, and the new line of Spirit Trainers, you have quite a few endgame battles in Pandaria which you can use to level up new pets. Be sure to wear your Safari Hat to get the most out of your battles! The over-arching goal is to provide a variety of content with which you can level up your pets each day.

This might be live on a few servers, but it's likely that it will take a server maintenance day for it to be fully implemented.

I just killed Nishi with a level one pet and Frosty still alive and my level 1 pet only got 2kish XP... which seemed terribly low. So I came here to see if people were complaining about it, but I guess that answers that question, lol.
Fun fact, nifty way I can tell if my server has reset... throw a pet biscuit (or the things that make them smaller) at one of the master tamer's pets. Like, in the world, surrounding them. They don't wear off because their pets are never dismissed. I threw biscuits at some of these guys days ago, and they're still there today. You can actually throw the big one and the little one at them, and they get both buffs and average out to normal size. I did that to the chick by Kara's pets on my server, and they've still had both buffs for 3 days, lol...

I have a notes section as well that I add what pets I use for that tamer and such as well but...
Maybe I could clean it up a bit and email it to one of the site admins to be added as a download?
