Re: Darkmoon Rabbit

You absolutely can join someone on another realm and kill the rabbit there. At the very beginning of the faire when all realms have the rabbit up, I have gotten as many as 7 kills within the hour. When the daylight savings glitch happened (and the faire didn't close when it was supposed to), All rea...

Re: Killing pets after checking rarity.

I've often wondered what others think of this practice. For me, I would hope that someone hunting for rares in an area would kill the ones that are not rare so that I don't also have to engage the same lesser pets. Of course this doesn't apply to the ones you're likely to stone anyway ([pet]Minferna...

Re: Share your best Wild Pets farming spot!

But the best area is the very west of Dread wastes killing the beasts that are around the legendary beast out there. There are 5 of 6 of them lined up perfectly so you never have to wait for respawns. The only minor problem is that you should be using mechanical pets as your 2 25s, and they might g...

Re: No more battlestones?

Try saving up the bags and opening them all together, or keeping a record of the stones you get. I bet you'll find it's more than you thought. ;) Not sure I'd recommend storing bags. In patch 5.3 they changed the way they drop stones: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/9135374/#pet "Protection for ba...

Re: Not a fan at all

The way I like to think of the ranking system is that it rewards one's efforts improving their pet collection. Everything that makes up a great pet collection is a function of time and focused effort. Amassing a large quantity of pets takes time. Time to capture all of the available wild pets, time ...

Re: Sorting By Name Fails - Instead Sorts By Battle Rating

For what it's worth, I'm experiencing the same behavior using either Chrome or IE. Any activity on the page (add or remove filters, navigate pages, etc) makes the sorting change to battle rating (even when the highlighted selection remains "Name"). Clicking Battle or Appearance correctly highlights ...

Re: Pet Score bugged?

Thanks Breanni, I love the site and really appreciate the work that goes into it. One final thought on the subject of scoring (I do love to beat a dead horse). If I were starting fresh, I would try to make the minimum contribution to the calculation 1 and everything else a whole number multiple of t...

Re: Pet Score bugged?

Good Points, Jerebear. Assuming the next expac gives us Epic pets/stones, the total percentage contribution from leveling would drop from 1/6 (16.66%) to 1/8 (12.5%), or even 1/13 (7.69%) if we eventually get Legendary pets. This all seems reasonable to me. Weighting could be debated ad nauseam, But...

Re: Pet Score bugged?

I almost completely agree with you. The exception being that 1 point for 25 levels seems high. At around 400 pets I start thinking of my score in terms of hours spent for each point. I can go out and find a rare wild pet to replace the uncommon one I have and in many cases that will take about an ho...

Re: Pet Score bugged?

Certainly, currently I have 508 pets with an average level of 14.5. So, my total pet level is about 508 * 14.5 = 7366 or the sum of the levels of each of my unique pets. Currently I receive 14.5 * 4 = 58 points for the level portion of my score. If I had 20 pets or 20,000 pets, this would not change...

Re: Pet Score bugged?

BTW, wrote this before seeing Dargno's post above (basically the same method stated slightly different) I think part of the problem is that the number IS a multiplier of an average. As Blizz adds pets, that number (and the hours spent leveling) has less and less impact on your score. For instance, i...
