Re: Duplicate Pets

There was a time when I used to keep various breeds of pets. I briefly considered collecting different color variants of the same pet. And when there were rumors of pet breeding being introduced, I kept M/F versions of some pets. But eventually, I realized it really doesn't matter. There are a coupl...

Re: Lucky Quillen Cub available at Shop

I understand the sentiment and agree on some level. I have been tempted to splurge on some older CE for the pets. But I always come to the conclusion that it's not worth the money. I originally started playing during Burning Crusade, but quit before WOTLK came out. I came back at the start of MOP. N...

Lucky Quillen Cub available at Shop

The lucky-quilen-cub and the mount that were previously only available when you bought the MOP collectors edition are now on sale at the shop. $5 for the pet.

Lost all my Rematch info

Had one of those minor disasters happen. Basically I kicked the electric cord out of the socket while playing. It wiped everything from Rematch in the process. I thought I had backed things up. But when I started reading the tooltip, it merely copies the info and you have to paste it somewhere and s...

Re: A rant... About the online pb

That's when I try to figure out how many ways I can beat them. If you are using the same team over and over, you're being boring too.

Re: TCG duping ?

Duping has largely been disproved. Care to site your source on that? During MOP, there were a lot of accusations about duping. As I recall, a dev came to the pet battle forums to debunk it. Unfortunately, those forums aren't available any longer, so you may believe what you wish. The upshot of what...

Re: TCG duping ?

It is also possible that everyone who wants one already has one. And the price is sticky even if the demand isn't.

Duping has largely been disproved. No reason to beat this dead horse again.

Re: Current Hardest Pet To Collect?

FWIW, I just got the Wondrous Wisdomball to drop. After 3 years of doing these quests, I am finally done. For the longest time I was afraid it was something I had deleted from my inventory. But when I opened up the cache, the quest auto-launched. Killed the chumps as quick as I could and seized the ...

Wanderers Festival up today

If you can't stay up late and have never caught the Wanderers Festival Hatchling, today is your day! It would appear that the Festival is up all day. Take a nip from the keg, listen to Lorewalker Cho sing and wait patiently for the hatchlings to appear. It may take a minute. But this is your best ch...

Re: Less trivial: two literally OP new pets

You will get your wish. One of the things listed on upcoming pet battle changes was "Hermit Crab".

Maybe they can take the nerf bat to the Fiendish Imp while they're at it.

Re: New Pet / Anima Wyrmling / World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Epic Edition

Also looks like Covenants will have exclusive pets.

Uuna will have some new story line in Shadowlands - makes sense.

And this year's charity pet will be Dotty - a baby Alpaca.

Brightpaw can have an instakill with Prowl>Arcane Dash. You just need to make sure the opponent can't dodge or block it.

Re: Pet Battles feeling quite balanced?

A lot of it depends on what server/group you are in. Last week I queued to a consistent diet of triple Nexus whelplings or triple Frostfur Rats. Not too hard if you are ready for them, but not much fun for average teams. Last night I went to a low pop server and ran into a bunch of different teams. ...

Re: Gnomeregan last boss change?

I ran into the same problem. Went back to Xu-Fu's and read the text. It called for a Highlands Mouse, but it had to be S/S or S/B.

Re: How do you level your pets?

It has really changed over the course of time. Initially, it was just leveling pets in the wild. But that was long ago. For a long time, I used to do the Pandaria circuit. But eventually that was too time consuming. WOD was the real breakthrough. With the Menagerie and the ability to buy upgrade sto...

Re: Honor 400 for a pet is insane..

The thing is, Legion pets DID NOT get easier to acquire. This is not true. All during legion, I looked at P7 as a goal I would never get to so I gave up trying. When BFA launched, they merged all your character's PvP level into one giant pool. At that point I magically had a high enough level to bu...

Well, 2 of the top 5 collectors already have it, so we know it's attainable. Seems like it would be hard, but I'm not a PVP guy so what do I know.

Re: Should I try Per Battle PvP?

I have a love/hate relationship with pet battle PvP. I go through stretches where I do it a lot. Sometimes I go weeks without it. It can be incredibly frustrating at times. But there's nothing better than beating "that guy". There are some rewards for it up to 1000 wins. After that, you get an achie...

I hesitate to call it OP, since that is a little hard for me to imagine. But that is a very high Hea...

Re: 3 unborn valk team

Don't think I have ever seen that. Not really sure what it would bring to the table.

I used to think it would be cool to run 3 Minfernals back in the days when they were hard to get. But other than for the novelty, it wouldn't make a lot of sense.
