Re: Menagerie Speed Kills

I doubt I'm the only one, but I cannot be bothered to have more than one of each pet.. Some pets are worth having more than one. I have 3 of the Nexus Whelpling although I really do not like the P/B breed (P/P and P/S are great breeds). I have been glad I found 3 of the Kun-Lai Runts and 2 Rapana W...

Re: Menagerie Speed Kills

Maybe I'm lazy but any of those single 'fable' pets can be downed by a Howl Bomb (Unborn Val'kyr, PWS and Chrominius).

Re: I am an idiot. =_=

So.. I just did something really, horribly, incredibly stupid. I bought a Land Shark on the AH on an alt server that I had some spare gold on. Didn't think to check it. But it wasn't caged. So my alt, who is level 90 and has never set foot in Draenor, can't learn the pet. >< I was wondering if anyo...

Re: Most underrated and overrated pets.

Qiraji Guardling s/s is underrated. Sandstorm counters AoE teams, and it gets hit less than Anubisath Idol because it can stun before activating Sandstorm. Very good against what seems popular right now, even with the drawback of having to deal with undead pets. Don't talk to me about the *)#$% Qir...

Re: Most underrated and overrated pets.

Frostfur Rat is a nice mention. The only difficulty is which breed to get it in. S/S is safe but I went with P/S and generally don't regret it. 309 speed is usually sufficient. Furthermore, he's a critter so he gets used against Undead, who are generally slow with huge health pools, so this breed s...

Re: Donna's "no-bs" WoD 6.1 Pet Tamer Guide

I'm going to be honest. I tend to ignore these strategy guides for WoD tamers. Mainly because I've done the WoD enough times including the Plushie achieve and I have my teams set for doing them day in and day out that I can get it done with carry pets. Some of your strategies are similiar to mine. W...

Re: What is a fair price to pay for Land Shark and Sea Calf?

So when I saw Land Shark and Sea Calf pop up on my server (Lightning's Blade US) around the 35k price range I figured it was just someone trying to capitalize on being the first to sell it. Now a month or two later I see the price for them is still around that range and looked up the requirements t...

Re: Getting a Team

Thanks so much..I used the stones on the ones you suggested. I do have a lvl23 Unborn Valkyr rare that I can get to 25. Now comes the fun part of learning how to use them. You'll have a blast and should be able to get through most tamers with those pets. Make sure you look up some of the the great ...

Re: Rare pets

I am new to pet collecting but one thing I have noticed is when I am in battle some pets names are in gray, white, green or blue. Perhaps there is a purple but I have yet to see it. Should I not bother with pets who are gray meaning they aren't that great? Highest pet quality available for now is r...

Re: What now?

Don't fret, I know you're feeling. I'm there myself. I kinda got that way after I hit my 600th pet. But I also get restless in the springtime. Less wow, more sunshine. I will admit that battle pets have kept me playing longer than expected and if I can gather enough gold each month without having to...

Re: Most underrated and overrated pets.

I will defend the Honor of the Iron Starlette, which is probably my 2nd favorite Mechanical out there. But that is one of those pets you really do need to have the right breed and to me that is P/P. Sure it's slow as can be but Windup-Supercharge-Windup - stuff dies. Most over-rated to me are the fo...

An Add-on I would love to get, if it existed

I was working with a new Pet Collector and talking about pets I use most commonly. Made me think about a great idea for an add-on, maybe it's out there and I just haven't found it yet. I think it would be neat if there was an Add-on that tracked how many times a pet was used in Pet Battles (PVE and/...

Okay I understand in order to learn the Sky Fry I would need to be Revered with the Sha'tari Defense. My question is if I see one on the AH can I buy it and learn it without having the rep. for the Sha'tari? Some have said yes others have said you need the rep. I really don't want to have to grind ...

Re: Advice needed on which pets to level to 25.

I believe the level penalty for using a battlestone to upgrade a pet's quality was removed in 6.1. The tooltip that mentions a pet will lose levels if a battlestone is used on them was removed. You are correct! I upgraded a ton of 25s to rare once 6.1 hit. Had a ridiculous stockpile of charms, so i...

Re: what do you look for when catching insignificant pets?

When I was looking for wild pets I tried my best to find rares for one reason. Looking for wild pets was a great opportunity to level other pets. But if the pet was super rare like a Minfernal or Shadow Sporebat I took what I could find. And if I spent more than an hour or so looking for a rare I'd ...

Really? A Bouquet of Flowers? I'm going to spend an hour of my time gathering chocolates for flowers that does nothing but look pretty. Yes I'm ranting but I just have to say this. First it was K'ute and now it's this Mystical Spring Flowers. Sorry but if the pet doesn't battle it's not a battle pet...

I think what you need to consider is what are your best TEAMS for collecting pets especially if you don't have many extra bandaids and are outside Draenor where the pet heal time is 8 minutes and not 4. There are several add-ons which allows for you to setup several pet teams in your pet Journal. Ba...

Suprises me that the valkyr is still that popular, after the massive nerf to it. But I think anub is one of the most nerfed pets ingame. I think the Idol deserves it's rating but it's just such a slow killer. And I like to get things done snappy. That's why I use whelks on the Pandaria Tamers and n...
