Re: Drustvar Piglet

Vendor in Anyport that sells the chocolates you need to find Nigel is neutral, Horde can buy from Nigel too.

Haven't tried it myself but looks like the quests that unlock additional Nigel pets can also be done by either Alliance or Horde.

Re: Honor 400 for a pet is insane..

Keep in mind that Activision/Blizzard makes a lot of money with content that keeps subscribers coming back month after month, which means it's quite deliberate to make things take a long time.

Re: Arctic Fox Kit - help?

One thing to watch out for, the "snow" effect can be really subtle. Hard to see, especially with so much background there being bright white. So just because it doesn't seem to be snowing, still might see a fox kit. I've heard suggestions that you crank your graphics up as high as you can get away w...

Re: Kun-Lai Runt Impossible to Find

The Kun-Lai Runt is one of those pets that spawns in batches with long respawn time. Since Blizzard has started combining lots and lots of realms in these older areas competition is fierce, especially with the clowns just looking for a rare killing any other rarity in hopes of a respawn (it won't ha...

Re: Emerald Proto-Whelp Issues

Yes, they're still spawning, problem is the competition. With way Blizzard is distributing workload on their servers, you may now be sharing Northrend with players from over 50 other realms. Pets like Nexus Whelpling and Emerald Proto-whelp seem to only spawn occasionally, in bunches in a limited ar...

Re: Carry Pet Experience Reference

Something I just caught onto with this being Darkmoon Faire week, the 10% buff you get from Carousel is applied to the base XP you'd get from encounters. If you have heirlooms like so many of us do don't get another 10% from those. Hypothetical case, something gonna give you 2,000 XP. With all 5 XP ...

Re: Class Pets - How to's? Add on's?

Bitter old man here, but need to add in. The Class pets part of what killed enjoyment of pet collecting for me. Pre-Legion we could get most everything with combination of patiently working at it and having gold for the AH. I already had toons of all the classes, but they each gotta go through the s...

Re: How to get Permanent Polymorphed / Hexed Battle Pets!

It's posts like this that keep me checking WarCraftPets forum daily.

Never would've thought to polymorph a battle pet myself, and now have four in my journal that are such fun to parade around Dalaran. Yeah, pretty sure Blizz will eventually fix, but till then ......


Thanks !

Re: Upgrade for Argent Squire/Gruntling

I forget the exact mechanic, but WarCraftPets compensates for the change so that it doesn't penalize you for not stoning the Squire back when it was possible. A Rare and a non-Rare Squire affect your Pet Score by exactly the same amount.

Re: Picking Up After A Hiatus

Wondering why people agonize over the Prestige pets. Sure, Prestige 1 not too bad. just takes a while, but the others ? Blizzard loves you, means you're going to keep sending them money every month. They've done a big hit on the the gotta-catch-'em-all crowd with Legion, so many that mean leveling b...

Re: Prestige Pet Calculation

Still grumbling a bit after Blizz cut honor requirement in half AFTER I grinded 90% of the way for Prestige 1.

Slowly, painfully, doing my daily towers. HATE PvP so that's my only recourse. Still working on it though. Cannot believe what these people suck us into.

Re: Too many pets

They're tapping into basic Collector urge so many of us have. And also the gotta-catch-'em-all that came with Pokémon. We all have OCD-lite and want to collect stuff. Mine has been helped by Legion, and all of the pets that are way too hard or time-consuming for me to even think about getting. Suspe...

Re: LF Feedback: PetScore & non-combat companions

1.) Count non-combat companions as level 25 by default, and calculate them into the PetScore as such. Seems to me to be the cleanest fix. Admit I'm a bit biased, never saw any point in raising non-combat pets to 25 back when we could do it so now my rating suffers a bit in comparison to a pet colle...

Wowhead is probably best place to look to answer questions like this. Their info not always totally accurate or up to date but at least gives some numbers.

The pet is tied to Battle.net account, not WoW account. In my case I have two WoW accounts, both of which are under a single Battle.net logon.

Re: soft foam sword of pets?

Grumpy, with his Superbark ability, easy to get. Just need to dodge flames in a burning house near Bradensbrook and rescue the poor pup.

He's upstairs, and stairway is flame-free so you can stop and get your bearings there.
