which of pre-MoP pets are rare?

Post by Imzocrazy » September 30th, 2012, 11:13 am

was just reading the guide and it said that some non wild pets like some of the world drops are considered rare even though they arent flagged as such...like the whelplings....

anyone have a list of pre-MoP pets that fall in this category?

This information will hopefully come in patch 5.1 when they add labels to the pre-MoP pets in the Pet Journal stating their quality. For now, we can only guess by looking at their health and stats.

There's a list from beta, posted by a Blue back in July. Here it is:

I just hope they update this in-game so we don't have to rely on external addons to tell us which ones are rare without having to alt+tab out to check a browser window.
Unfortunately that list is [url=http://wowpetaddiction.blogspot.com/2012/09/non-wild-pet-quality.html]outdated and inaccurate[/url], and we'll have to wait for an update.

You can know the quality of your pre-MOP pets with the addon battle pet quality glow

When in combat you see if it's uncommon or rare :)

I'm using an addon called PetJournal Enhanced, which colours all the pets in your journal with rarity. From looking at the rarity of the pets that can be caged it seems accurate enough so far.

The addon also lets you sort by rarity, level, highest-stat, etc. which I found very useful.

According to this addon, generally:
- Pets from the collection achievements are Rare e.g. Feral Vermling;
- Pets from Feats of Strengths are Rare e.g. Onyxian Whelpling;
- Pets from Trading Card Games are Rare;
- World drops are Rare e.g. Crimson Whelpling, Terrible Turnip;
- Argent Tournament pets are Uncommon; and
- Pets crafted from professions are Uncommon e.g. Personal World Destroyer

Another way would be to pet battle duel a friend and ask them to use the macro to determine rarity during that battle to figure out the rarity of each of your pets.

Hope that helps,
Qooh
