Re: Best of Each Type

Some quick suggestions for breeds: Flying: P/P since the flying racial adds a ton of speed above 50% health and most Flying pets have a speed buff for below 50%. Dragonkin: Most Dragonkin have Tail Sweep which gets an additional swipe if the user goes last, so avoid speed (exceptions exist, like Net...

4. Provide tags for abilities so users can backtrack through the database and find other similar abilities (i.e. tags for Arcane Storm might be: Team Damage, Weather Effects, Bonus During Arcane Winds, etc. etc.) We already do this on the ability's page -- click Arcane Storm and take a look. Is it ...

Re: wild pets with non-damage 1st attacks

i've noticed that cogblades almost always use a non-damaging first move, which makes them very good for power leveling those level 1 pets. unfortunately, there are few of them, and they are often camped. does anyone know of more common, high level, wild pets with a non-damaging first attack? Vale o...

Re: Official 2x3 Tamer Guide

Or you just use Anubisan Idol (from AQ40) and FluxFire Feline for ALL Tamers and you dont have to switch teams all the time. At the start I used different Pets for Tamers but these 2 get all Tamers down easy and quick. Unfortunately, Reflect will be removed in 5.2 and Fluxfire may not be as useful ...

Triple Blighthawk - Unbeatable?

3 Ghostly Bites, 3 Lift-Offs, regular attacks doing 300-400 damage, plus 3-6 extra attacks from the Undead racial. Am I missing something, or is this a near-impossible team to counter?

Edit: Ghostly bite does 820 damage on some breeds - ridiculous.

Re: whats your longest pet battles round

Using a stall team in conjunction with Apocalypse (cockroach ability) is one of the few legitimate PvP strategies I've seen that has the potential to win. It can be countered easily, of course, but if the enemy team doesn't have any dodge/miss/reflect/immune abilities it can be devastating. With the...

AFK in PvP, WTF?

Been happening off and on since I started battling, people will enter a battle immediately go AFK. I assume this is a tactic to rack up XXX number of wins (if players forfeit the match because it's taking too long) for the PvP achievements. Blizzard should implement an auto-forfeit feature, such tha...

Wastewalker Shu Glitch

Today I battled Wastewalker Shu and forgot to cycle in the pet I was leveling (Golden Dragonhawk Hatchling). However, the Hatchling still gained experience from the battle, as if it had attacked for one round. I assume this is due to Pounder's ability [url]http://www.wowhead.com/petability=644[/url]...

Public Service Announcement - Bandages

If you're like me, when searching for the perfect rare breed, you skip killing a lot of wild pets in an effort to save time by forfeiting the match. Unfortunately, with 5.2 coming, the mechanics of doing this are about to change. Forfeiting a match will take some health away from your pets, so stock...

Pet Leveling in the Wild - Vale of Eternal Blossoms

Initially, I overlooked Vale of Eternal Blossoms as a place for leveling pets because I wasn't satisfied with the reliability of Flying abilities (FYI, they are strong vs. Aquatic types and Vale is overwhelmingly Aquatic, but they tend to have a moderate => high chance to miss or hit 1-3 times). How...

Re: Team of triplets

I roll with triple Fel Flames sometimes. I'm 0/5 in wins/losses, but knowing you're going to lose and spamming Conflagrate is fun anyway.

A legitimate trip team is Tiny Snowman. You control the weather and stun everything in sight.

Re: Reset Pet Battles if you mess up?

If I'm not mistaken, the only way to leave a pet battle without de-summoning the pet is to become engaged in combat. Having a friend or guildie with a character of the opposing come find you and tap you into combat works, but it's a lot of hassle.

Re: Mechanical Stone?

I'm not up to date on the breeds of different pets. What is an S/S? Pets come in varieties like weapons do. A weapon with a lot of durability is like a pet with a lot of health, and the pet's breed is called H/H. A weapon that does a lot of damage is like a pet with a lot of power, and the pet's br...

Official 2x3 Tamer Guide

With so many people leveling 2x3 (2 max level pets and 1 lowbie) against pet tamers, it makes sense to have a place to go for ideal/maximized pet rosters. Against some tamers, the roster doesn't seem to matter much, but against others every move is critical. Below are listed the most challenging bat...
