Is there a way to search pets by attack type?

Post by Crump1970 » April 23rd, 2019, 9:53 pm

I would like to easily search my pet database for type of attack (Not certain ones like "bleed")
for example I would like to fight using a beast that has magic attacks. I use a few popular add ones but
None have this ability. I have to mouse over every beast and their attacks looking for a magic attack.
I saw some posts referencing the family battle achievements, "beast mode", "critters.." etc... I do not need
A predetermined list of what pets to choose per battle, I like to choose my own teams and being able to
Quickly find the pet that has certain attack types would save me lots of time!

Not to dissuade your search or any others' suggestion, but Rematch's "strong vs" filter is intended to filter all pets that have a specific attack type, albeit less directly than you're after.

Magic attacks are "strong" (do more damage) against Flyers. So if you filter "type" Beasts and "strong vs" Flyers, you'll get a list of all beasts with magic attacks. Note that this excludes utility magic effects like Moon Dance in the picture below (the attacks that meet the filter have a gold border) and only searches for damaging magic attacks. And in a few instances Blizzard has tagged an ability to not be a utility spell, so there are some rare false positives.
