@Meheandtheeis3, everything you did is just fine, but it will not change the fact of updates to the website. It's a matter of time. It can take 24 hours of wait time to reflect a change of just 1 battle pet leveling from 1 to 25.

 

Other than that, Lil' Benfon is super cute. He's a basic beast vs critter.

 

He's a tiny dinasaur that you just want to pet.

@Gershuun: You cannot cage a pet that is in your battle area. Most likely that is your problem. Open your Pet Journal and make sure none of the 3 pets on your battlefield are not him. Then you should be able to right click on Laughing Stonekin and choose "put in cage".

 

 

Other than that, nothing special to me about this Panderian elemental vs mechanical pet except I like the idea of mudslide in slot 3.

Other than that, nothing special to me about this bird, other than Ancient Knowledge which only 3 pets have so far. Looks like Ancient Blessing which gives 5/9 but only gives 5/5.

Rip followed by black claw will hurt very bad to any critter. Hard to do because a faster critter with dodge will avoid 2 attacks.

 

@Cynner13, Another way is to use an addon like "Battle Pet BreedID".

 

@Tricephelos, All of the main zandalari have 374 speed with S/S breed, not just this guy. I like your comment very much and I agree with you, but you can't say "it is the fastest non-Flying pet with Black Claw". Anklerender, Kneebiter, Toenibbler S/S all have the same speed and all have Black Claw.

With two alchemists working dilligently, it took me about 15 tries to finally get this from meat to pet. He is pure beast vs critter, all 6 movesets. Currently, only 4 pets have Huge Sharp Teeth and only 3 pets have Impale. Weak attack to flyers, strong against critters, vulnerable to mechanicals, and protected versus humans.

 

But most of all ... he's sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cute.

This is your elemental vs elemental pet. Do not use this pet vs aquatic, they will hurt you bad. Equally don't use this pet vs mechanicals, you can't hurt them like you normally can with an elemental.

 

Healing Stream only benefits the backline if they are aquatic. Bubble is good unless you get hit more than once in a single round. Stick with Water Jet instead of Pump unless you can time it to hit with with something like howl or shattered defenses.

This mech will badly hurt a critter using extra plating, sticky web, and spiderling swarm. If the critter is faster (it usually is) maybe use a speed buff like dazzling dance.

 

Otherwise this pet is just a basic mech vs beast.

This pet is the answer to undead vs critter. He could probably kill a rabbit under the right circumstances. Rabbits love to kill undead using dodge, burrow, and sratch/flurry. The problem is speed. You would need to pair him with a fox or someone that could dazzling dance in order to out speed the rabbit.

This is the only pet (so far) with Unstable Engineering. I have a problem with it because a 25% chance to miss your target completely (in my mind) is not worth 1.5 damage at a 75% chance. Maybe if you had curse of doom, howl, shattered defenses, whirlpool, launch rocket, or something strong in the works, it would be a deal changer. But on it's own, it seems like a poor gamble.

 

Sile9 makes some very good points about this pet as well.

I was hoping that this guy would have the Warning! ability. Only three pets have it to date (the old Alarm-o-Bot and the other 2 new Gnomeregan pets).

 

He does have the Alert! ability which only 2 pets have (him and the Alarm-o-Bot), but it's not so special. In my opinion Alert! should either shatter armor for 1 round or "always go first", otherwise it's just a mundane attack.

 

I will have to say I love the way he looks, but as far as battles go, he's a H/H basic mechanical "good vs beast" pet.

Speaking for the B/B breed, Amplify Magic followed by Arcane Storm ... during an arcane storm ... does 599 split evenly amongst the enemy team. That is 199 per team member for 3 enemies! This 599 translates to 899 versus flying pets.

 

Once Arcane Blast is maxed out (after 2 uses), Amplify Magic followed by Arcane Blast does 555.

So far (11/25/19) only Lil' Tika and Zandalari Shinchomper have the Aura of Gonk ability.

 

Once the aura takes effect, a triple damage ability (like Build Turret) will do a triple heal to the front line pet. The aura lasts 4 rounds and takes 4 more rounds to cool down.

 

Humanoids can get thier racial passive benefit on top of this aura, meaning a lot of healing to a human pet in the front line with a triple damage ability in place.

So far (11/25/19) only Lil' Tika and Zandalari Shinchomper have the Aura of Gonk ability.

 

As Unknownhand points out, you can't even use it until 8 rounds into a battle. For this reason, I doubt you would ever begin a battle with this guy out front.

 

Once the aura takes effect, a triple damage ability (like Build Turret) will do a triple heal to the front line pet.

 

The aura lasts 4 rounds and takes 4 more rounds to cool down. This ability adds new dimension to pet battles.

This pet is very interesting because it can create two different 

weather conditions in slot 3. Sandstorm or Call Lightning.

 

Swarm of Flies will suffer from Sandstorm, but will greatly benefit

from Call Lightning when it comes to damage. However, Swarm of Flies can benefit from the self healing due to the racial benefit of being a humanoid.

 

To date (12/1/2018) this pet's Sandstorm reduces more damage (92) than any other pet that has it.

Whomper is 1 of only 3 battle pets to have Flash Freeze and 1 of only 5 pets to have Deep Freeze. He is the only pet to have both Flash Freeze and Deep Freeze in different slots. Playful Frostkin has both abilities, but in the same slot and cannot be used as a combo.

 

When used in combination, Flash Freeze followed by Deep Freeze, Whomper averages 770 damage to non critters, slows, and stuns the target.

 

Versus mechanical, Flash Freeze-> Deep Freeze -> Snowball averages 1575.

It seems that you cannot use this horde pet with your alliance toon. Dissapointing, but no big deal I guess.

For me, it dropped from a "Verdant Wilds" expidition (normal). Might be related to killing a rare elite Pandaren elemental, because we killed at least one.

 

Too bad slot 2 has both Flash Freeze and Deep Freeze. Ideally, you would want those two abilities in different slots so you could take advantage of Deep Freeze having a 100% chance to stun the target if it is chilled. To date, only three pets have Flash Freeze, but there are several other pets that can chill a target.

Ragepeep is by far my favorite of any battle pet when it comes to summoning him as a companion. I normally am only concerned about the battle abilities and not the cosmetics for battle pets, but this guy is an exception. He follows me around like a real pal. Is he a bird or a beast? I don't know, you decide. S/S at 325 speed, wow, nice.

Battlewise, the Sprite Darter Hatchling is identical to a S/S version of a Nether Faerie Dragon (which is much easier to get). That won't help your collection, but it will help you in battle until you obtain the elusive Sprite Darter Hatchling.

Demolish should have a way to hit in the similar way that Nocturnal Strike always hits when the weather is darkness. Demolish has a 50% chance to hit without modifiers, but wouldn't it be nice if there was a pet that could cast "Plasma Storm", a weather condition that persists for 5 rounds during which Demolish has an 85% chance to hit instead of 50%. Currently, only 13 pets have Demolish.

 

My only problem with this pet is the 2 move mandantory setup for slot 1.
