Re: PvP for a non-PvP Pet Collector

When I saw Honor 400, I immediately gave up my goal of trying to collect every available pet that can be got in the game itself. Now I pick up things as they seem interesting, or useful for battle. I'm at Honor 70 or 80, I think, and I could maybe do it eventually, but it's not worth putting myself ...

Re: multiple breeds of pets

Yes, I was very proud of myself back in Pandaria fo having two Anubisath Idols, two Pandaren Water Spirits, and a couple more. I made the effort to level them because, unlike today, bandages didn't grow on trees, so it was very handy for the Pandaria circuit, as well as for the CT. That's not about ...

Re: magic brawler

Those teams look solid, and Rosqo's Magic Clonedance looks like it could win some. Rosqo has more on his Youtube channel under Brawler teams. Just search for Rosqo. I find that Magic's greatest weakness is its lack of strong non-Magic attacks. Compare to, say, Beasts, that have counters for everythi...

Re: Pet Battles feeling quite balanced?

No, not trolling even a little. When someone says "balance pets", I assume they mean balance pets. All pets. I don't think that's what you mean. I think you mean "Have 50 or so pets that are good for PvP without having 4 or 5 that are much better. (And the other 1000 pets don't matter at all.)" And ...

Re: Pet Battles feeling quite balanced?

See what happens when you say the B-word? :P Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more! :) I think a lot of the problem comes from the ambiguity in the word "balance". I have a long-standing challenge, for anyone who believes in it: balance 10 random pets, given the same tools the devs have...

Re: One pet not leveled in entire collection

https://wow-petguide.com/index.php?Collection=24591 but I don't see any not at level 25 that isn't marked as a duplicate. As Thadjosh76 says, it could be a faction pet, or maybe one of the unlevellable pets like the Balloons? Thing is though that Pet Score is defined as 2*(total unique pets) + .04*(...

Re: Pet Battles feeling quite balanced?

So with this encouragment, I popped back into the queue on this fine Sunday morning (in Pandaria, levelling a couple of pets) and ran into ... double-TCS.

This is why we can't have nice things.

Re: Pet Battles feeling quite balanced?

Maybe you should avoid the B-word in case someone comes hunting. :) People can certainly point out individual pets that are imba. TCS and Hermit were deliberately engineered to be overpowered. I have no idea why. I wish I had an insight into their reasons. Still, overall I agree with you. While I ha...

Re: Polished Pet Charm Spending

Followup question I suppose--what's the pet buying priority for battle pet teams? I took a long hiatus and can't really accurately judge how "valuable" a pet is for battle.

Re: Where to get stats nowadays?

Xu-Fu's has replaced the sadly departed PetSearch with a Collection Viewer.

https://wow-petguide.com/index.php?Collection=19717

but the web display doesn't show all the fields; a web page isn't wide enough. You will need to Download to Excel to see the rest, including the Base Stats.

Re: Can't enter Gnomeranian ?!?!

Have you completed it?

Have you done it this week already? Maybe on another character, and forgotten?

Is the character you are trying at level 120? Sub-120s can't take the weekly.

Othros, what exact team and strat are you using that is failing? I haven't done it since I finished getting the pets, but I can pop in and test and record. Have you tried every strat on Xu-Fu?

Messaging form confusing

I noticed a status message for a user looking for help, so I messaged them. The message form sends an email, I know, but when I press "SEND" nothing appears to happen.

Re: BfA Wild Pet discussion

Crimson Octopode? I don't have it yet, but I just took a look. The 313 of the S/S doesn't feel fast enough for a Dive/Bubble avoidance build in PvP. And if you're doing that, why wouldn't you use a Slithershock? In fact, why bother with that either when you can slot a Hermit? Just on a first look, P...

Re: Perky Pug

A very sizeable fraction - as I say, I think it's up to a third - of the playerbase never do dungeons at all, except one or two maybe in recent expansions when dungeons gate something they feel they have to do. I boosted many people through Legion Normals so they could progress their professions. An...

Re: Perky Pug

you have not queued for dungeons with a total of 50 random people? It''s 100, actually, not that that makes much difference. So 25 runs. And about 15% of people haven't done it. I think about 30% of people play solo. Of course, some of those will have done enough over the years to get the achieveme...

Re: How do you level your pets?

I don't really level many pets any more. I kind of miss it. When I do, I usually take a Pandaria circuit for old time's sake. But the current way to level pets is with the Legion Family Familiar tamers, who are infinitely repeatable when their world quest is up. They give as much XP as Squirt, and t...

Re: Should I try Per Battle PvP?

Yes. You should. You may or may not enjoy it, but you should at least give it a fair try - which probably means getting to about 50 wins to get past the initial shock. :) Pet PvP is the most anonymous thing you can do in WoW. Your opponent sees your character as a random NPC, and no character names ...
