Re: Racial Rankings

You're conflating racial abilities with damage strengths and weaknesses, but really those are two different lists. What's your list look like if you only consider the racial abilities? I think the dragonkin racial is actually pretty good; lots of dragons have non-dragonkin attacks, so they're not ne...

Re: King & Queen of the Menagerie

This fight is pretty easy now that it's been nerfed. I use Legs, Jademist Dancer, and Tiny White Carp, though they're almost never all needed. Lay a whirlpool and spam pump, then Surge of Power on the turn Legs will die. Finish off the other with your other two pets. No problem!

Re: King and Queen Floret (BAH!!)

Both times I've beaten them with something like Tiny White Carp, Jademist Dancer, Legs. Just spam hard-hitting aquatic moves and let Legs soak an RI-buffed attack. I've only done them the two times, but they were both one-shots.

Re: Addon Rematch

Changing the 'Strong vs.' search from OR to AND would be a great help. When a pet dings 25 and is removed from the leveling queue, the que doesn't take the next pet in the queue, or the highest pet in the queue, it takes one specific pet every time (right now it's a Stunted Yeti for me, but I don't ...

Re: Leveling from 1 in Draenor?

There are lots of crabs on the shore just north of Karabor; that's a good spot for Alliance grinding. There are also the Draenor trainers, one in each zone. Most of them are easy and you can carry a level 1; Ashlei in Shadowmoon in particular is good for that. For getting lots of pets to level 5, th...

Re: how many "types" of teams can you think of?

A barrage team would use moves like Rock Barrage, Nut Barrage, Make it Rain, etc, usually in combination with something like Wild Magic to boost the damage of each damage tick. You can also combine them with moves like Plagued Blood for backline healing, or Stampede and its kin for bonus damage. The...

Re: Anyone else playing Darkness teams right now?

Last week I played around with a very similar team of Widget, Ghostly Skull and Dread Hatchling. It was remarkably effective. Widget is a lovely addition to the pet stable.

Re: Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling - nerf!

I haven't had much chance to pet battle the last few days, but it's probably good it was nerfed (and I say that as a regular MPD user). Bringing out a full-health mech with a huge nuke and decoy at the end of the game was quite OP.

Re: Zao in the Tournament

I start with H/H Unborn Val'kyr. Curse of Doom while Zao powers up, and then Haunt after eating the huge-damage charge.

Bring in a P/P Zandalari Kneebiter. Black Claw, Hunting Party and Zao is down on the second round of HP. 5-round, 2-pet fight, every time.

I'm really enjoying using Rematch, but I do have one problem.

Re: Weird bugs with Food Coma

You don't need to make an attack with the leveling pet if you're swapping it in like that. Just swap it right out and save a turn; it'll still get the XP.

I usually just throw level 1s against a pandaria trainer to boost them to 11, because of the annoyance of wild 25s one-shotting the babies.

Yeah, I've noticed that same problem, though not always. Most of the time it works fine with the breed module turned off. I only use PetTracker for the enemy abilities and switcher, so it'd be nice if I could get just those as a standalone mod. I like the way BattlePet Breed ID displays breeds much ...

Re: Fastest Route Around Pandaria

I don't know if my route is the fastest, but here it is anyway:

Start @ Aki -> Nishi -> Mo'ruk -> Hyuna -> Whispering -> Thundering -> Yon -> Burning -> Zusshi -> Wastewalker -> Flowing

I rarely bother with Obalis or Major Payne, but I'll do the Darkmoon if it's up.

Re: Battle with that pet

Okay, I think I want in on this thread. Feel free to call out just about any rare pet I have, I'll level it if need be. Good motivation for that too.

Nefigah, winter's almost over so why don't you try out Mr. Chilly before his ice floe melts?
