Re: Right click vs. Macro?

I use one macro for targeting: /tar <pet name> /stopmacro [noexists] /cleartarget [dead] /stopmacro [dead] /run SetRaidTarget("target", 7) which I put in my BottomRight Action Button 12 slot and keybind that to Num Pad 0. I have Num Pad . bound to Interact With Target. Now when I am after a rare pet...

Why are you using Twitter to post all your useful information instead of using Blizzard's own forums?

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

In Brawler's Guild I am stuck at Blatt :( My main spec is heal (Resto Druid) so my gear is mostly heal spec (just 4 pure DPS pieces.) As a Moonkin I can't do enough instant DPS and my high DPS casts take too long and either get me killed because adds pile up or the enrage timer hits. I did get him d...

Re: CONTEST: Pet Tips for Mini Tyrael!

Mini Thor - He is my secret weapon. Attack first with Toxic Smoke which gives you a two round DoT while you get Launch Rocket wound up and fired. I love its animation too :) Another tip: Use a moth against Dor the Wall. Hit with Slicing Wind and time Cocoon Strike for when she punts you. They share...

Seconded. The only "dupes" I have are for different breeds.

Use a pet with Pump against the two healers and a mechanical against the worm.

Re: 5.2 PTR: Massive changes inbound for fan favorites

I'm sad for the reflect nerf but not because of the PvP aspect. I thought it was kinda fun to watch my idol make some of the moves of other pets (like stampede.) I guess I still have Simulcrum.

Re: Manual Update - What's Your Opinion?

The only real downside I've experienced is that you have to fully exit WoW for the armory to update the pets (vs just logging the character out to update equipment.) Otherwise I like it. It also prevents anyone from claiming to own pets that they really don't have.

This is guarenteed to give the lowbie the experience, and it won't risk taking a full hit.

Re: Couple Requests

The "Battle Info" tab will tell you the stats, breed, level and quality of your own collected pet. Will this suffice for your needs? That kinda works (lots of clicks though.) Another thing that would be nice would be to simply see your collection as a more compact list of pets (i.e. like what you s...

Re: Dark Simulacrum experiences?

Kinda hit/miss on my Crawling Claw. There are times I swear it isn't working right and other times it works nicely. One problem is that mousing over the buff icon does not show you what it "stole" so you have to look at the battle log if you care.

Re: Earning battle stones?

The dailies seem to be the way to do it. If you want to get a bit more serious about farming the dailies for stones I highly recommend Pet Battle Teams (you can find a link in the Addons section of this site). Make a team that it optimized for each trainer, name it after the trainer... and you're s...

Couple Requests

1) The "My Pet Collection" button should actually be a button that takes you to your collection (it use to work the way before the update.) Now I have to click "Manage"/"Update" to get to it. 2) Really need a search within your collection (same a Blizzard's.) Right now I have to guess which page it ...

Re: noob rare collecting question.. multiple rares of a type

Lately I too have been collecting rares in various breeds. One issue I have is that I will already have 3 of a given pet and need to drop the uncommon pet to capture the rare version. Alas you currently can't do that once you start a fight. I am looking forward to 5.2 where I can forfeit, drop the u...

Well I just tried having my low level pet in first with immediate swap and no xp was gained. Perhaps there was some AOE damage received while it was in the background and that counted?

Re: Your team

Your first pet does not need to attack, or do anything else, to get xp. Have it in your first slot and make your very first move a pet change. They get full xp for this without having to risk getting hit. This way you can take a lvl 1 into a lvl 25 battle with zero worry. Did they change this? Use ...

Re: Bleeding Hollow - trading battle stones

According to WoW forums you must be able to cage and trade the pet you want upgraded. If you can't cage it then you can have someone else upgrade it.
