I've found PetMarket
. It searches for unknown pets and doesn't have other AH addon dependencies. It's ok, but it still doesn't meet my needs, like Darolyn described. A small "glitch" with it is if you have filtered your pet journal in some way (for example with Rematch and PJE) when the addon checks for missing pets, it will show a lot of pets you already own because it can't access the unfiltered journal. You need to /reloadui with an unfiltered journal for it to work properly again. It's not that big of an issue though.
I'd like to see an addon that would have options for searching for example quality upgrades for pets you own - if there's a rare version of a pet I only have as uncommon. Or taking that even further to a more advanced level, if I could specify it to look for specific breeds of some pets I'm interested in - for example a S/S Gilnean Raven. That could be done with some AH shopping list addon, I think, but a specialized addon for the whole thing would be better. And also probably easier to manage, if the interface was dedicated for pets.
There was some addon thread created by the author here, that was also building something like this and the author also thought that the find upgrades -feature could be good, but I checked it a couple of times after that and it hadn't gotten updates after WoD launch. It was PetShoppingList
, and based on the comments it doesn't work.
All of the above should be possible, since for example TheUndermineJournal shows all that data outside WoW. Searching for very particular things should be also possible, since every time I post pets, my auction addon fetches the price for the exact same pet (rarity/level/breed) and I need to do a name based search to actually see the lowest price for that pet.Edit.
PetMarket does search based on name and offers you the one with lowest price. I always do a manual search if there's something I might buy, since I like to see all listings before buying anything. For example for Nightshade Sproutling it would offer the unlearned pet since it's the cheapest. When doing a manual search I also see the caged pets with known breeds.
