Underwhelmed; a PVE battler's initial BFA thoughts.

Hey Gang, As a player who enjoys the end game PVE content (Celestial Tournament, Family Familiar, etc.), BFA appears to be a big yawnfest for me. Don't get me wrong, MANY of the new pets look very cool/cute/funny what-have-you, but I'm not even really seeing anything here that rises to the level of ...

Re: Easy to obtain affordable Pet Capture team?

Lots of good comments in this thread so far. I'm a fan of the underrated [pet]Molten Hatchling[/pet] as my primary fighter paired with [pet]Broot[/pet] or [pet]Blossoming Ancient[/pet] (admittedly, not the easiest pets to come by...) and then do your capturing via [pet]Grumpy[/pet].

Re: Kun-Lai Runt Impossible to Find

My advice for these and other low spawn pets is to simply adopt a "while I'm in the area" approach. I don't have a 3rd one yet myself, but I still find them occasionally as I fly through their zone (not yet in the particular flavor I'm looking for sadly). I stumble upon them as I battle Kafi for the...

Re: Best Place to Grind Pet Levels?

@Sto650

If you're speaking of the little ditch there beside Aki the Chosen, you can use an MPD Explode strat to level 2 pets at a time. In my experience, that will work 90% of the time and only fails if the enemy team gets a few criticals. Might save some time that way during critter week.

Re: Brace yourselves, Snowy Owl is coming.

Other than completionists, is there really any reason to get more than one? I just gave it a precursory glance and in a world of Teroclaw & Yellow Moths, I'm not seeing a home for this beautiful model. Took me about 3 complete circuits through Winterspring (Nessingwary) at various times of day yeste...

Re: Best BattleNet Store Pets for Battling?

Isn't Lil' XT in the store? If so, he's pretty phenomenal for certain PVE strats and far easier to get than the Landro version.

Re: Confused about Squirt

I leveled my pets to Lv 5 in Pandaria before starting my Squirt run. Using an MPD Explode strat in one battle (try the little ravine next to Aki the Chosen, no mobs, very predictable set of pets to battle against) you can run 2, level 1 pets up to high enough level to use the MPD + Ghost Skull strat...

Re: New collector with a few questions

You'll find that there are a couple (maybe more) strats that work best with 2 moths, so 2 P/P Yellow Moths stoned to rare will be something you'll want for MoP and WoD content. Other players keep suggesting a "Lightning Moth" but I've honestly not saw a need for one yet.

Re: search: strongest against, vs. calculated abilities

Only a few short months ago I was in your same shoes (I started playing WoW 9/16). The suggestions you've been given so far are excellent. I'd pretty much agree with Grainne's list for early leveling. I can confirm that your green P/P EPW is still a house and will wreck many things until you get a s...

I found both the Unborn Valk and Scourged Whelpling simply by flying over them on the way to some random AT quest (I'm new to the game so this content is still pretty cool to me and I have none of the mounts or pets, also, as a Hearthstone fan, I really dug the GT expac). Just make sure you have the...

Re: New collector with a few questions

I'm also a new player and collector since Sept 16. Some tips that have helped me and are not particularly difficult to accomplish: Head over to Exodar and purchase and release Yellow Moths 'til you get a couple of P/P breeds. Others may disagree, but for PVE, it's pretty much the best moth in the ga...

Re: Need advice on powerlvling pets to 25

TY, tried the Crab + Infi Whelp strat last night to great success.

New players have it rougher with Squirt. There are plenty of reliable strats, but the Broom is out of my price range as are Bronze Whelp and Widget. Not sure if there is anything as fast as those 2 strats that is viable for us Newbs.

Re: Farming Zul'Drak Need an easy to get Powerful Critter

You know I was really lucky in that spot. I pulled 2 stones (sold them for right at 12K on the AH) in about 10 days and I'm sure that is way above the curve. Maybe that was just luck, but it still seems like the best place through WoD content (other than Squirt of course). I haven't played any Legio...

Re: Need advice on powerlvling pets to 25

A couple of questions: Are you skipping Cymre Brightblade? If so is it because she's a pretty tough opponent for a carry strat? Also, I don't have Clockwork Gnome yet, did you try Lil' Bling in that spot? I suspect [ability]Make it Rain[/ability] followed by [ability]Inflation[/ability] and then [ab...

Re: Best Place to Grind Pet Levels?

That would be me that has been using Zul'drak and yes, it's very good with the right team. The round trip circuit back to the Stable Master takes about 30-ish seconds (with the right team, you only need it occasionally) and the spawns of Water Wavelings are unlike anything I've found anywhere else. ...

Re: Farming Zul'Drak Need an easy to get Powerful Critter

Currently, the Slithershock + [pet]Stinker[/pet] seems the most efficient. If the enemy setup happens to be Waveling and then Spider/Snake, the Slithershock will take both of those out with 4 successive procs of [ability]Pump[/ability]. Swap to Carry Pet if he's over Lv 10 and do anything. Stinker c...

I haven't finished leveling him up yet, but I can envision spots where he'll be a viable Capture Option to the Turnip. I stumbled onto a Blue S/S Leopard Tree Frog last night that curb-stomped my Turnip and of course got away. I'm not sure if the Corgi would have fared better, but at least he's not ...

Re: Farming Zul'Drak Need an easy to get Powerful Critter

As of now the P/P Slithershock is at Lv 22 and volleyed out a Lv 23 H/S Rare Waveling. Seriously, it feels like rolling out a Baby Iron Starlette effect. It then stunned the next pet (Snake iirc) so I could have slipped in a carry pet (the Slithershock is actually what I'm leveling right now) very e...
