Ideas for combined PVP pet battle addon

With Pet Tracker down for a while now, i contemplated creating a addon that would fulfill all the needs of PVP Pet Battlers without having to install a metric ton of different addons. While i learned to love all of them, it's a hassle to reinstall all of them every time you reinstall WoW or hope tha...

Re: Do you remember your first rare wild pet?

H/B Little Fawn, left from the gate of Stormwind after unlocking pet battles just minutes prior. Didn't even know that rarities existed until the achievement popped. And yes, i still have it to this day, leveled to 25, with the name "Firstie" because i'm creative like that.

Re: Top 20 Pets

Okay, this was veeery hard to compile for me. I settled with forcing myself to include the pets i use the most. 1. S/S [pet]Alpine Foxling[/pet] Incredibly well-placed in the meta right now, and has one of the best enablers in [ability]Dazzling Dance[/ability]. This is the full package. 2. P/S [pet]...

Re: Let's Talk PvP!

I’m just hoping there will be an overhaul of the PvP quests as they aren’t really that relevant nowadays. Hey, free xp for my toons is very relevant! Nah, i'm just kidding. An overhaul would be greatly appreciated. Make it a 5 win daily and give it a 1% chance to drop a rare pet, maybe even an exis...

Re: 7.3 Breed Choices: Argus

For [pet]Skyfin Juvenile[/pet], i'm firmly in the H/S camp by now. The additional staying power seems to be way more important than hitting a bit harder on the P/S, and i think all other breeds aren't worth discussing, because if you want to run a flyer that's slower than [pet]Teroclaw Hatchling[/pe...

Re: Unloved pets appreciation thread

It has become somewhat of a joke in the discord channels, but i really love the [pet]Pygmy Owl[/pet]. It's faster than a [pet]Teroclaw Hatchling[/pet], which is always welcome, it has a good heal that doubles as a damage buff in [ability]Preen[/ability], and after the Preen, it deals more damage tha...

Re: Best pets of 7.3

About the Blazehound - yeah, my hopes also were pretty high for that one, but it just doesn't deal enough damage for the trap to be punishing. If you suddenly only do damage worth half a basic move with the trap and your basic attack hits for less than usual, they become a lot worse. Also if your pe...

Re: Best pets of 7.3

First of all, in case you haven't seen it - i am closetozero. (You can stop the dramatic music now.) I have the feeling that the discussion about your sentence is leading to nowhere. Of course one pet alone will very rarely beat a full team of pets - if that's your argument, there are no strong pets...

Re: Best pets of 7.3

Yeah, my opponent would've won with one less swap. I'm also pretty sure by now that Lil' XT is the weak spot of the team and could be replaced with another powerful aoe pet. I used Pyreclaw more over the last few weeks because Rosqo insisted that it was really powerful, and yes, by now i'd also say ...

Re: Two things

1. Currently, all reflect shields work like this on multihits, so i'd say it's not a bug per se, but more of a nonintuitive rule you have to know. Sadly, pet battles right now are full of that. 2. Of course i can't speak for your opponents here, but i will only make a game quick if it is 100% sure t...

Re: Mechanics & Formulas

I'd say that the vast majority of all trainer battles are strictly sequence-based, with the only variance coming from CCs like Rosqo correctly said, in which case they'll swap in the next pet in line and use their sequence. If the battle is not a trainer battle (per example Argus elites) that swap w...

Re: Family Fighter - FUN! ty Blizzard

I recently finished it after doing like 1 pet every few days, just because it was so time-consuming. I have a sizable collection and for most of the battles, it was just a matter of tenacity rather than a test of skill. Combine that with some battles having very specific pets you have to own to beat...

You choose[ability] Bone Barrage[/ability], [ability]Call Darkness[/ability], [ability]Nocturnal Strike[/ability]. After the battle starts, you press the buttons 1,2,3 in that order, then ...

Re: Best pets of 7.3

It works in a different setting. The Fel-Afflicted pretty much is a Haunt-Imp combo rolled into one pet, and the Juvenile is more of a synergy pet with Haunt/Rebellious Imp. Juggling doesn't really work against it, and you can often just kill a backline pet with a well-timed swap while Winds and Imm...

Re: Glory of the Tomb Raider run

I'll try to talk with one of my guild tanks about it, maybe we can make it happen.

By the way, the ilvl i posted a few weeks ago isn't up to date anymore obviously. If it still matters, i'm at 923 equipped now, but i think most regular players should outlevel normal ToS nowadays anyway.

Re: Best pets of 7.3

I agree with your choice of the top 5, although i'd say (like i said in discord before) that Skyfin Juvenile is stronger than you're giving credit. The other five are probably better, but it is a close sixth in that case. Not being completely awful without the racial makes me like it more than Fel-A...

Re: Pacing: Familiar-1 vs Familiar-2 vs Fighter

I like the "do it whenever you want"-style, but right now, it feels much more like a chore than it has to be. Among those 180 battles you do, there are MAYBE 20 in there that are interesting. Everything else just takes time rather than skill. I feel like they're currently increasing the numbers to s...

Thanks for taking the time, guys! I recorded 504 battles in Jan/Feb 2016, during the Graves meta. I put these into the same format, for comparison of how the meta has changed after the Legion nerfs and changes: 1. Bone Serpent - 128/118 (8.5 /23.4) 2. Graves - 115/115 (7.6 /22.8) 3. MPD - 77/77 (5....

Nice job, guys! And great to see the Blancient isn't that much high. Do so few of people have a Broot? I can only speak for myself, and i literally haven't seen a single Broot in any battle. Same pretty much is true for all order hall pets, i saw Ban-Fu twice and maybe one or two of the DK broodlin...
