Re: Polished Pet Charm Spending

Pretty good analysis. I think 8.2 will show us a lot of their intention. If there are no new pets available for purchase with Polished Pet Charms in 8.2, then I'd put my money on there being no more this expansion and that PPCs will be devalued at the end of the expansion for a new currency. I don'...

Re: CE pets as achievements?

I missed out on the original CE pets... it was hard enough to find ANY copy of the game at launch and way back then, you couldn't just buy a digital copy! But I have bought every CE (physical or digital) since then. I, like most of us who are posting here, get bitten by the collecting bug in a lot o...

Re: How do you level your pets?

I did "Super Squirt" once to plow through a massive amount of pet leveling. I won't be doing that again, partly because my backlog for leveling is always short but mostly because it was tedious. I much prefer to periodically do a WoD & MoP loop. Good XP for pets and good XP for alts. I basically "ac...

Re: Polished Pet Charm Spending

I know none of us know for certain - but what do you think the odds are of them adding more pets to buy with Polished Pet Charms? In this expansion? Maybe, possibly? In future expansion? Probably not, right? I don't recall precisely when the old Pet Charms (now Shiny Pet Charms) were introduced, but...

Must have duplicates with different breeds?

My initial goal in Battle Pets was just to collect all the unique pets I could. So when I started my collection, duplicates weren't really important to me and paying attention to breed didn't matter too much. Lately I've been trying more battle pet PvP, and doing more of the battle family achievemen...

Ah yes, good catch. I meant Nov 10th :) What is the optimal mix of XP buffs to use with Squirt battles? I have plenty of lesser treats. I have the Safari Hat. Should i get the bigger treats & some darkmoon xp buff hats? I don't want to overkill it with buffs if the extra xp is just going to waste on...

Just a reminder, per the schedule in the first post Squirt is going to be up for US realms on Saturday Dec 10th and this will be during the Battle Pet Weekly Bonus! I've never power leveled using Squirt before but plan to Saturday - so I've got a clarifying question about how to run it multiple time...

Re: Polished Pet Charms

It looks like you'll be able to get these from new follower missions in BfA. I cannot find anything that confirms it yet, but I assume there will be max level bet battle WQ that also give a chance at them. You can see some sources of the new charms [url=https://www.wowhead.com/item=163036/polished-p...

It bothers me more than you lose HP when you forfeit, I've already captured all the battle pets, now I only hunt for better upgrades even on common pets....Ive gone through many extra band-aids since patch day. What I've started doing is only healing after I've found an upgrade to fight. I just go ...

Re: CONTEST: Pet Tips for Mini Tyrael!

Terrible Turnip - This is the best pet to have on your team when looking for new captures. His Weakening Blow attack will never take an opponent below 1 health, so just be mindful to not have any DoTs up on the target and you won't have to worry about killing a rare by accident.

Re: Earning battle stones?

I got a bit more serious about doing the dailies, particularly the Pandaria and while I'm not swimming in stones, I've seen many more in the last two weeks than I ever did before. The dailies seem to be the way to do it. If you want to get a bit more serious about farming the dailies for stones I hi...

Re: Raiding with Leashes

Being a rogue I found soloing Razorgore pretty painful. I second this. I was able to eventually get it though, on my fourth attempt. I found that if I would run Razorgore close enough to me, the adds would peel off him and start attacking me. Then it was just a matter of dropping the MC a few times...

Re: Simply THE BEST server to pet collect

Thanks to the original poster for the great tip on this server.

I just parked my DK there... when...

Re: Earning battle stones?

Supposedly the higher the level of the pet you are battling the higher your chances, regardless of your pets level. Also the stone that drops from the battle is supposed to match the type of the primary pet (the one you clicked on). RNG does play a factor in this and it can be of a different type. ...

Earning battle stones?

One way to supposedly get more stones to drop is by going up against higher level opponents. Does anyone know the specifics on what is considered higher level opponents? For example: Lets say I have two level 10 pets and one level 25 on a team. If I go up against higher level pets only using 1 or 2 ...

Re: Chance of Rare

You should look at your total pet battles, not just what you've captured, to determine how frequently you encounter rares. I've won 253 pet battles. So far I've caught 20 rares. I've accidently killed a few rares, and the # of battles doesn't reflect multi-wild-pet battles I'm pretty sure. But rough...
