Graves — Pet of the Month: June 2015

June 18, 2015
Graves - Pet of the Month: June 2015

Straight from the Haunted Mines and into our hearts, we're featuring Graves for this Pet of the Month!

Collecting Graves
Graves
Collecting Graves requires a bit of time investment in Blizzard's new game, Heroes of the Storm.

Earn account level 20 (not to be confused with hero level) and Graves will appear in your collection in WoW.

Heroes of the Storm is free-to-play and part of the MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) genre. It's a team-based game, but completing objectives is just as important as the team fights. You can choose to play against other players or against computer-controlled NPCs.

There are three game-modes available to all players initially — Training, Versus A.I., and Quick Match. These three modes are the primary ways to earn levels.

Training and Versus A.I. are almost the same, except your team is comprised of other actual players by default in Versus A.I. You can choose to play with all computer-controlled teammates, however.

There is a daily experience cap for both of these game-modes. Once you've reached the daily limit, you will not earn anymore experience until it's reset (24 hours).

Quick Match is an entirely PVP version of the former two. Objectives and team fighting remain the same, but you'll be interacting with other players who may behave differently than A.I. Quick Match games may take longer to complete, but can reward more experience.

Unlike Training and Versus A.I., there is no daily experience cap in Quick Match.

Once your account reaches level 10, you're granted a free 7 Day Stimpack. This increases the amount of experience earned per match by 100%. Be sure to make the most of this boost; it only lasts seven days!

You can also purchase Stimpacks for real-world money. The in-game Heroes of the Storm shop has two options available — 7 Day Stimpack and 30 Day Stimpack. Both provide the same experience (and gold) bonus.

Friend Bonus activated
To ramp up your experience yield even further, inviting a friend to your party and playing matches with them grants 50% more experience per game. This stacks with the Stimpack bonus.

Last but not least, as part of Heroes of the Storm launch celebration, there is a limited time event for players in the Americas region. From June 16th through June 24th, players will receive a 100% experience boost.

In the end, earning account experience comes down to simply playing Heroes of the Storm. Win or lose, you earn experience just by participating and finishing a match in any game-mode. Winning yields more, of course.

Check out our forum thread dedicated to discussion on collecting Graves for more helpful leveling tips and tricks.

During your journey through the various battlefield maps, you might even come across a familiar creature in the Haunted Mines. Although Graves is mostly harmless, his larger counterpart can be quite formidable. Good luck!

Battling with Graves
Graves is a little Undead golem who packs a big punch. This comes in the form of two deadly AOE spells. Grave Destruction is a split spell which deals damage to the whole team. The overall damage dealt stays the same, but is split among the pets left alive, so as pets start dying the hits get bigger. It also destroys objects, shaking up the existing PVP meta.

BONESTORM deals a lot of damage, but at the expense of health, and it deals a static amount of damage to each opponent, making it deal gradually less DPS as you mow down your opposition.

Luckily, Graves has a built-in way to deal with that BONESTORM health loss, with Consume. The catch is, if you choose Consume in the first slot, you'll frequently have a 'down' turn or two, because all your abilities will have cooldowns.

Graves using Skull Toss
The other slot one choice, Skull Toss (pictured above), is the only ability Graves has without a cooldown. It deals a bit more than double the damage as Consume, but without the useful healing kicker. Depending on how you'd like to play with Grave Destruction and the teammates you choose, Consume Corpse may be a more solid choice in your second slot.

The last ability Graves has is Clobber. It shares a slot with Grave Destruction. Because Grave Destruction is such a big deal in the PVP meta, and because stuns tend to be relatively useless in PVE, it's going to be a rainy day in the Haunted Mines before you choose that Clobber.

Pet Score Increase, Search Improved and Other Updates

June 05, 2015
We're kicking off the summer at WarcraftPets with a handful of site changes and improvements — one of which should make many of you OCD-types very, very pleased. So let's start there...

Pet Score Increase for Noncombat Pets
There have always been nine pets that have been a thorn in the side of our most accomplished pet collectors. If you fall into that category, you already know which pets they are:

Pet Score Increase for Noncombat Pets

  • Alliance Balloon
  • Chi-Ji Kite
  • Guild Herald (alliance)
  • Guild Herald (horde)
  • Guild Page (alliance)
  • Guild Page (horde)
  • Horde Balloon
  • Sky Lantern
  • Yu'lon Kite


These nine noncombat pets have a base quality of uncommon. The problem is that even if you use a stone to upgrade them, the WoW Armory still reads them as uncommon when you update your collection. This has been a bug in the Armory for years, and a fix does not appear to be coming any time soon.

Therefore, we decided to do something about it on our end. We've changed the base quality of these nine pets to rare. This means that the next time you update your collection, you'll earn some additional points and finally see these pets disappear from your 'uncommon' stats.

True — everyone enjoys this increase, whether they used stones on these pets or not. But this was the only way we could address the bug on our end, and we think most of you will agree that it's a welcome change.

Smart Pet Search: Community Rating
Our Smart Pet Search now includes new parameters to find pets according to their community ratings. This includes both Battle Rating and Appearance Rating.

Smart Pet Search: Community Rating

This simple addition makes it possible to zero in on the best possible pet (as deemed by our users) for any situation.

Other Updates
This round of updates includes a couple more changes to improve your use of our site.

  • Home Page Forum Groupings
    Our home page now separates the most recent posts on our trading forums from our other forums. This will make it easier to quickly find the posts that interest you most right from our front page.
  • New Ability Tag: Transformation
    We've added a new tag to our database of pet abilities. You can now filter abilities that have a transformation effect, i.e., the ability causes the pet to transform from one battle type to another. You'll find this new filter under 'Combat Effects.'


Our Thanks to You!
The feedback and ongoing support you give us make updates like these possible. As always, thank you for helping us to help you!

Patch 6.2 PTR: Blazing Firehawk and Savage Cub

May 28, 2015
Two new pets were added to the 6.2 PTR in the recent patch. [source]

New Faction Pets
Z'tenga the Walker
Two new pets will be available from two new factions in 6.2. Both pets will require a reputation grind, but it will be worth it!

The first pet is the Blazing Firehawk, which will be available from Dawn-Seeker Krisek for 2000 Apexis Crystals.

You'll need quite a bit of esteem with the Order of the Awakened before you can purchase this pet though. The vendor will only sell this pet to players who are Exalted with the faction.

The second pet is the Savage Cub. Once Revered with The Saberstalkers, Z'tenga the Walker will sell you this pet for a unique currency — 200 Blackfang Claws.

These claws can be looted from the saberon at Fang'rila in Tanaan Jungle. Be careful though, the saberon are fierce enemies who would much rather keep their claws than hand them over to you.

Patch 6.2 is shaping up to be full of pets from various sources. Currently there are 26 new companions just waiting to be collected!

Junglebeak — Pet of the Month: May 2015

May 22, 2015
Junglebeak - Pet of the Month: May 2015

Its feathers are flashy, but its beak and talons are sharp. Don't let its looks fool you; this pet can hold its own. A savage pet from a savage land — this month we're featuring the Junglebeak!

Collecting a Junglebeak
Junglebeak
This brightly colored bird is a wild pet that can be found in Gorgrond, Draenor.

The Junglebeak can spawn in as a primary and secondary pet in the dense jungle areas. You won't need to look for very long before coming across one. Be sure to look up, since this bird has a habit of flying high, closer to the canopy than to the ground.

It's fellow flying friend, the Axebeak Hatchling, can also be seen flying in and around the trees in Gorgrond, but in fewer areas than the Junglebeak.

Both pets have the identical abilities and breeds, so collecting either will provide you with the same battling capability. And if you have trouble deciding which one to favor, you can always toss a coin or simply pick the one with the most appealing plumage.

Battling with a Junglebeak
Junglebeaks have a whole lot going for them. Not only do they have that wild, colorful skin, but they have a good amount of versatility and good offense.

As with many bird-type Flying pets, sharing the first slot is the multi-hitting Slicing Wind and the single-hitting Peck. Slicing Wind is the better choice if your opponent doesn't have shields and you can ensure that you're going to be the fastest. Otherwise Peck is your best pick.

Your DPS option seems like it would be Flyby in the second slot, which adds a 25% damage multiplier, plus the heavy-hitting, but low baseline accuracy, Nocturnal Strike in the third slot. This is partially true, if you can introduce a buddy for your Junglebeak with a Blind effect.

Junglebeak using Rain Dance
However, the second slot also hosts Rain Dance (pictured above), which gives a substantial heal and 50% accuracy boost, which means Nocturnal Strike then has a 100% chance to hit. Even disregarding the additional 25% boost to critical chance, this strong self-synergy which is very difficult to negate is a very valid choice both in PVE and PVP.

The last slot also hosts Lift-Off. If your stable is relatively small, Lift-Off and Rain Dance healing makes for a Flying pet with some longevity, which can be difficult to find. A pet that can swing from a damage dealing dynamo to a turtling terror with just one small change in its moveset? Well, that's why the Junglebeak is pet of the month.

Blizzard released a preview of the pets coming in Patch 6.2. [source]

Fel Pup from Blizzard's Preview 6.2 – Pets Galore
It should be noted that some pets are not mentioned, such as Crusher, Left Shark and a few others. However, these pets are expected to make an appearance in the upcoming patch.

List of all 6.2 PTR pets

Two Ultra-Rare Pets?
New in Blizzard's 6.2 Pet Preview are the Crimsonwing Moth and the Sapphire Firefly. According to Blizzard these two wild pets will have a unique spawn pattern, similar to that of the Unborn Val'kyr.

  • Crimsonwing Moth -- A rare spawn in Talador with many spawn points, and only one ever appearing in the zone at a time.
  • Sapphire Firefly – A rare spawn in Spires of Arak who also has many spawn points and appears only once at a time.


The location of these pets and how often they will appear is still unknown.

Currently the Crimsonwing Moth and Sapphire Firefly have yet to be added to the Pet Journal on the PTR, but we will announce any updates so stay tuned for more information.

Patch 6.2 PTR: Pet Battle Bonus Event

May 17, 2015
An update was added to the official 6.2 PTR Patch Notes that included additional information on the Bonus Event for Pet Battles. [source]

During Pet Battle Bonus Events, you’ll be able to take your pets out for a little exercise and earn triple pet experience from battles. Winning several PvP Pet Battles as a part of a quest during the event awards the player with an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone that instantly levels a pet to 25.

Pet Battle Bonus Event PVP quest
In addition to the triple pet experience buff, an account-wide, weekly pet PVP quest will be available during the Pet Battle Bonus Event.

The quest, The Very Best, can be obtained from an NPC located outside of your Town Hall during the event. Win five queued pet PVP matches against other level 25 teams and you'll be awarded with an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone.

If PVP isn't your cup of tea, you can still benefit from the Bonus Event. During the event all players receive a buff, Sign of the Critter. This bonus pet experience stacks with the Safari Hat, pet treats, and Darkmoon Top Hat.

The Pet Battle Bonus Event is scheduled to last for four days each month. That isn't a lot of time to take advantage of the experience buff, so better have all of your pet leveling accessories ready!

Patch 6.2 PTR: Two New Pets and Crusher Update

May 06, 2015
Two New Pets
Two new pets were added in the latest 6.2 PTR build — Cinder Pup and Shard of Cyrukh. [source]

Cinder Pup
The Cinder Pup (pictured right) will be a reward from a follower mission, Fiery Friends.

"A group of tiny fiery puppies was spotted deep within Blackrock Foundry. If we save them, we may be able to raise them."

We hope the Cinder Pup will get along well with the Cinder Kitten!

List of all 6.2 PTR datamined pets

Shard of Cyrukh
The second pet, Shard of Cyrukh (pictured left), will require a fair amount of questing in Tanaan Jungle before gaining access to the area in which the treasure spawns.

According to Twitter user @Mononic1, the treasure containing the Shard of Cyrukh is located south-east of Throne of Kil'jaeden. Once this area is unlocked for you, keep an eye out for a glowing yellow crystal jutting out of the ground (pictured below).



Update On Crusher
Crusher with pickaxe
Crusher, a pet inspired by the ideas of a seven year old aspiring developer, was added to the PTR.

This pet will be available from Trader Araanda (A) and Trader Darakk (H), found inside the Town Hall in your garrison. Crusher will cost 1000 gold and is Bind on Use.

True to the boy's original concept art, Crusher wields a little pickaxe when summoned out (pictured right).
