Re: The Problem with Talking About the Pet Battle System

I would agree with the points here if I were the only one with these frustrations. I am not however, both here or at the WoW forums. I suppose it should be expected for this to be a "it is all great" site, but that is too bad. I did not reasons why I felt that it is not good end game content and no ...

Re: Help Me with the Celestial Tournament

There is no Magic decoder ring of pets you have to have leveled or exact sequence of attacks you have to use to beat the tournament. Yes you have to have a plan and use a strategy to beat it but there many different strategies for each fight and for many of those a large number of options for pets ...

The Problem with Talking About the Pet Battle System

I wonder if we can ever have a solid conversation on the quality of Blizzard's implementation of the pet battle system. Some of us are very frustrated. We like some aspects, so keep coming back, but many things are really annoying. Some often respond with "be better" as the solution to what we see a...

Re: Help Me with the Celestial Tournament

That is one of the frustrating things. I should have enough to do this, but it is more of a pain than something enjoyable. I will tolerate it (at some point) to get the other 3 pets, but not because I like it. I firmly believe that things in the game should be enjoyable. Pet battles have some compe...

Re: Why pet battles fail

The problem with pet battles is that failure doesn't leave the player with a great sense of success. Though hitting the many RNG-driven and other walls makes for incredible frustration. That is their failure in game design. A well-designed pet battles would have challenging elements, but ways to fig...

Re: Complete Celestial Tournament Walkthru and Pet list

Which addon do you have that shows the enemy actions and such?

BTW, I would love it if this were a write up rather than a video. I found too much going on in the Taran Zhu one to completely follow. That is my problem though.

Re: Help Me with the Celestial Tournament

The format encourages finding the decoder ring set that will win and then just repeating that. Experimenting requires a full restart and going through it once is painful enough. I managed to beat it for the second time this week, just under the wire. I seem to the magic set of pets now or at least a...

Re: Help Me with the Celestial Tournament

IDK what the problem is, I followed the guide on wowhead to a T. It has round by round guides and 9/10 times my battles go exactly as the guide said it would. Three weeks in a row now I have wrecked the tournament. The guide also doesn't use impossible to obtain pets (except the valk which I just s...

I will try that and your post even has me motivated to run the Mists leveling loop now. I managed to take out the 3 monk group already, though I don't remember what I used. I even got the "beat all trainers" achievement last time, I just got stopped cold with the Celestial. This game still has far t...

Re: Help Me with the Celestial Tournament

I got on a little while ago, but I notice my excitement for the game is not there. I just killed Ordos with a group as well as a Celestial when I got back down, but I am left with a meh feeling. Getting stomped after so much expectation really kills desire. The desire may come back or it may not. I ...

Re: Help Me with the Celestial Tournament

I tried the call lightning and then flock approach, but messed it up by not swapping right away. I tried several others of the same principle, even trying a Zandalari Kneebiter (or one of them) to do black/claw hunting party since I was running out of alternative teams. That died quick. This is too ...

Re: Help Me with the Celestial Tournament

I am getting fed up with this idiotic game. It took me several tries, but I finally beat the first 4 and 2 of the celestials only to get my rear wiped by Xu-Fu. This is stupid. Yeah, some of you wipe the floor with it, but they have added another layer of impossibility. I ran out of week since the c...

Re: Collector's edition pets

They could simply sell the older versions via a digital CE version. I can't see how I would pay for it, but some certainly would. Though I still think some of this is money grubbing a bit, as I had no chance of getting Murkalot without paying $40. I did pay for several RAF accounts to get those moun...

Re: (US) WTT TCG pets for your 25s

I sent a friend request. I would be glad to level anything I have/could get easily to trade. I tried buying a few boxes of cheap card expansions and that is NOT a profitable route. I would rather burn a couple of days leveling something to trade.

Re: Help Me with the Celestial Tournament

Thanks all. I stayed up WAY too late and tried again, combining another site's hints to sneak out a win. I will certainly be looking at these posts next week though. I do have 1 Chromius and I am leveling a second one. I only have one Whelk, but I picked up a second while looking for Wild Hatchlings...

Help Me with the Celestial Tournament

I finally decided to try the Celestial Tournament after getting wiped out when I tried it quite a while ago. I proceeded to waste too much of my evening in a vain attempt to overcome, mostly using advice from Wowhead. (I couldn't find the posts here.) I am very annoyed at Blizzard now as I think thi...

Re: I have Murkalots for trade

I wouldn't pay the $40 for it. I certainly wouldn't pay those prices. I can't imagine why anyone who wanted it that bad didn't just buy a Virtual ticket to Blizzcon.
