Re: Battlestone Drop Rates

I usually get 1 stone (on average) per day, from the sack of pet supplies reward, after battling all the trainers that offer it. (usually the highlight of the night) Lots of travel time, though! (thank goodness for scrolls of recall) :) But all this time, I've only ever gotten one stone from a wild ...

Re: I have become a pet snob

anyone else have this problem? I don't see it as a problem, per se. There's nothing wrong with it, if you're having fun. If anything, it's a process, akin to gearing up your toon. Swap out your lesser gear (pets) poor/common/green gear for blue gear (pets) Removing the unwanted breed IDs from your ...

Clothes make the 'main'

Wondering if anyone has any suggestions for transmogrifations that would go well with the safari hat. Actually, whether or not the armor can be 'mogged' isn't an issue, my toon is a paladin and can wear anything. This is more of a RP idea. (I'm pretty much bored with WoW, with the exception of pokem...

Re: Bipartisanship

Am I the only one who - at least at times - tries to be polite and/or friendly towards players of the opposing faction? No, there are some of us still playing the game. In fact, I've named my toons Polite, Considerate and Respectful. These aren't just names, but also a reminder of what the code of ...

Re: Gilnean Raven Question?

From what I can understand about Breed IDs, sounds like your raven is Breed 3,13 (all stats level equally). If I was min/maxing this pet, I would be more in favour of Breed 10/20 (more attack), as Flyers have that passive ability - Flying creatures gain 50% extra speed while above 50% health. (But t...

Re: Any pets you hate to fight?

I hate facing a pet with the "Wish" ability (seems way too OP for my taste) or the "Shell Shield" ability, which nullifies DoTs like, Rip - even though the Rip tool tip says "to Bleed for 78 Beast damage per round for 5 rounds" - and yet, the Shell shield ability says "Reduces up to 37 damage from e...

Re: Talk about bad luck!

It sounds more like this Cross Realm Zone thing (rather than bad luck)- I've had the same thing happen flying to Whisperwind Grove, in Felwood. The flightpath takes you directly over Shatter Scar Vale, home of the elusive Minfernal. When I saw several Minfernal pets on my minimap, I could not believ...

I think it's incredibly gratifying to see a Flawless Battle-Stone appear, no question. :D

Re: Battle-stones and How You get them

I've only ever received a stone from a wild pet battle, when I captured a Snowy Owl. (level 16) Can't remember the secondaries. But I've also been battling non-stop lately, and have received nothing for defeating the opponents. :( Logically , I would think you could get a stone from defeats; the per...

http://www.wowhead.com/search?q=pet+tamer#npcs:0+2+1 might help.
(Ignore the first 3 - spirit trainers, and the one guy on Darkmoon Isle.)
That should be the complete 45 tamers list that I used for that achievement.

Re: Pet Battle bugs 5.1

The tooltip (while active in battle) for the Petability, "Repair" (or atleast on my Clockwork Gnome) doesn't list a value to be healed. Instead, it says "... then repairs DATA ERROR health."

Re: Frustrated with pvp battles

I understand your frustration, and you're not alone in this unfair matchup system. Queuing (3) level 5s, and to find out you're going to face (1) level 10, and (2) level 3s is flat out irritating. I always felt (I could be way off base here) that the system totals the levels up, and pairs you accord...

Re: List of Pet Battle Bugs

Minor visual bug with the Petability, Stampede.
If you KO the pet after it has stampeded one round, it will appear defeated behind the enemy trainer as it should,
but there's also an 'snapshot' image of it behind your team, in its alive and well animation.

"Secondary" Listing

Would it make any sense to have a listing/field for "This pet can appear as a secondary (Y/N)" ? Or is there some general rule of thumb? I know some pets can ONLY be secondaries. but I'd like to look up a pet and check to see if it can appear as a secondary, or if it's a primary only. Case in point:...
