Re: Porcupette Blues

I usually skip the tamers in Icecrown and SMV but had some extra time to kill this morning and did them. Got Porcupette out of the second of those bags.

Re: Anyone close to summoning Sumprush Rodent(H)?

I'm guessing with the changes planned for 5.2 it's going to be harder to get as many chances for rares in the 20 minute window you get. What's getting changed? Primarily: "Fleeing a pet battle will no longer despawn the pet that was being battled, but doing so will now inflict some damage on the fl...

Re: Newer player's dilemma

I just have to come to terms with the fact that I will never make the top of the lists since so many pets are no longer available. Trying to get my score up with over 100 25s and avg lvl of 13.5 so far. Not to mention rares of all available wilds, but still... Okay i'll stop whining now :/ Even tho...

Re: Anyone close to summoning Sumprush Rodent(H)?

Farming the ships worked well for me as well. I already had a few hundred commendations and it only took a couple hours to get up to 2000 from there. I split the grind up between two days so I could also make use of Helpful Wikky's Whistle while grinding them. I also highly recommend grinding them o...

Re: CONTEST: Pet Tips for Mini Tyrael!

Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling is the only mechanical pet (takes reduced damage from magic attacks) with a dragon attack (does increased damage against magic pets). This makes him especially useful in fighting challenging pets in the magic family and well worth your consideration for use of your fi...

Re: Pet Score vs Total Collected

I do wish different breeds of the same pets weren't considered duplicates, but that's picking nits. If we could, we probably would. But duplicates have been a royal pain in the butt for us from a programming standpoint. Seriously, you have no idea . How about different colors? Just kidding! ;) I've...

Re: Long road to 25

Undercity Rat shares spawn points with the other pets in Undercity, if you fly around killing anything that isn't them you'll find a lot of them fast. As to leveling pets faster, I find tamers that I can carry level 1 pets on with two 25s because the bonus XP brings a level 1 pet to level 8-11 typic...

Re: My new Battle Pets blog

Also, Enzzo, your Burning Pandaren strategy just plain does not work for me. :oops: I've no idea why it doesn't work, but I can't get Chrominius to survive the elemental spirit's dot. So if you have an alternate strategy, I look forward to seeing it. (I've been having good luck with an Anubisath Id...

Re: Pet Score vs Total Collected

How's this for another perspective? Why should you be ranked higher simply for having been introduced to the game sooner, and being willing to shell out cash, over someone who has put more effort into their collection? Two points. Firstly, the whole point of buying a CE is to have a couple items th...

Re: Best Pet to use a Flawless Battlestone on?

I would use it on a pet that is useful in battles right now but can't be captured as rare. Jade Owl would be a great choice. So would Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling or the Enchanted Broom. All of them have attacks that are strong against families that have weak attacks against them and are useful on...

Re: How much would you pay for a Minfernal?

It would also give those of us who already have the uber rare pets a reason to go farm more and make it even harder for other people to get one or just kill the spawns to reduce supply and drive up the price for the caged pet.

Re: What's the one pet you just can't seem to get?!

So far the Horned Lizard has been the most frustrating for me. I'm finding spawns, but no rares. I'm even using an alt that hasn't quested there to get the ones that phase out.

Edit: Got it.

Re: Raiding with Leashes

Twin Emps is very easy to solo as melee with decent gear (I'm in LFR and valor gear on my warrior). Clear the room before them, back yourself into a corner to minimize the knockback being an issue. You can easily out dps the heals.

Re: Pricing

I honestly don't see how a leveled pet is worth much more than a level 1. Any given day that I do Pandaland tamers I get 3-4 pets to level 25. That's minimal time investment compared to the 15-20k increase in price I see on the AH for leveled pets. Do these only sell to people who don't know they ca...

Re: Pet Score vs Total Collected

As a longtime collector with a large number of pets who also took the time to get rares of most of the new ones, I like this system. I do wish different breeds of the same pets weren't considered duplicates, but that's picking nits.

Re: Imperial silkworm and moth

They're always uncommon when learned. Any rare ones you see were converted via flawless stones. The armory displays the rarity of the item that teaches the pet, not the pet itself. Hyacinth Macaw, for instance, displays as epic in the armory.

Re: Forfeiting a match

Yeah, it's a sloppy system with an easy workaround. I'm surprised they aren't using a deserter debuff like they do for everything else, 2 minutes or something like that seems reasonable.

Regardless of what they end up with, I'm glad I already have the hard to find rares that I want.
