Just to confirm: You CAN receive loot on the same toon more than once per day, but if you have the uniques already, you will see no loot?

Was beginning to wonder, so have moved all my alts over there and killed the big bugger 12+ times (to count him killing me well over 5 times per fight ><) and was starting to get dis-heartened to see all these silly pelts :(

Regarding unique loot: If you have Moonfang's paw and theres another one on corpse, you cant loot it because you already have it. But it will get sent to you in the mail, and you cant take it before you destroy your first one.

If theres no loot on moonfang, then you were just unlucky and no loot was rolled for you. Think of it as getting gold in lfr.

Are you on a low pop server or was it just a slow time of the day?

I'm somewhat concerned about how the whole Moonfang event will go once the novelty of it dies down. Unlike the Timeless Isle rares, you can't solo the DMF world boss even if it spawns like clockwork.

If turn out and participation becomes an issue in the next expansion, it may not be as bad since we'll be higher level and have more gear. But if there's already a slow down in the number or players trying for it, then it might be something to keep an eye on over the next few DMFs.

I've already noticed a little bit of a slow down on interest on it. A lot of people are discouraged because they keep dying on it (hint: if you're dying to the leap, that's completely on you, stop thinking it's from lack of heals) and others have all the items already so don't want to keep doing it. I've gotten everything but am still doing it when I can.

The good news is if you have a decent group of players, you don't need a large group. A tank, a healer or two, and two or three competent hunters or locks could kill it. Pets can tank the boss very easily as long as they get some additional heals, and the tank picks up adds and keep them off the rest of the group.

What do you guys think is a reasonable price for a P/P (level 1) Moon Moon, right now? I've gotten two, a S/S which I've started to level, and now a P/P. It'd be good against a raven/crow team, I suppose, but I'd rather get a couple pets I don't have yet.

There are two P/P level 1s up for 29 and 30k on Illidan, which seems pretty overpriced to me. I guess I'm asking, does a P/P Moon Moon have any shot at selling that high?

If anyone is interested in trading, lemme know. I'd trade for a Droplet of Y'Sharrj, Rascal-Bot, or Pierre, or any 2 of Ruby Droplet, Gooey Sha-ling, Ji-Kun Hatchling, and Ashleaf Spriteling. (assuming it hasn't sold)

Yeah, Moon Moon is already down to 10K on Illidan. Expect that to drop to 2-3K before the end of the week as supply increases.

There was a P/P 25 for sale on Illidan for around 12k all day yesterday. I was undercutting with a P/S with the hope of buying the P/P with the gold. By late last night, neither had sold and more undercut us. Don't see it on there now, so it either finally sold or was taken down. I think the vast majority of players who sell the pet don't even know they have breeds.

Breeds is one of the most poorly explained mechanics ingame. You get -NO- info about it.

For a very long time, there was little to no info on a very large number of things through the default UI (dungeon/raid mechanics, rotations, quests, hell even the rarity of pets wasn't a part of it on MoP launch!). I fully expect Breed IDs to be part of the UI in the future, but these things Blizzard some time to get around to. Thankfully, there's more than enough information on breeds on this site and others like petsear.ch

I kind of like it like that, it does so there is more to devle into later, instead being overwhelmed early with chosing breeds for every rare you are trying to farm, when it will probaly not be relevant for most of them.
I know i would have been a lot more confused and probaly having less fun when i played pokemon as a kid, if i understood how stats worked in that. (i understand its a lot more complex there, but still :D )

This is all off-topic, but there's not -no- information on breed ingame. The default UI shows you speed and power and health and gives you a little icon roughly indicating what that particular pet is oriented to (pretty sure that's all in the default UI).

It's not telling you what's available, but a naive but observant pet battler could come to the conclusion "Hey, I'd really like that move to go first, but this particular minipet seems to be invested in power; perhaps I could try to find a fast one". Or "This pet is fast but it's always going to get in the last move since it's undead; maybe I should find one with more health to get an extra turn."

I agree it's obtuse in-game, but I think that's OK. It's a mini-game, doesn't need all the intricacies thrown at you up-front. When people get more into it, if they want to go back and find a different breed of something, that's normal.

Brand new pets are hard for the various tools to parse. I know when I got my Ruby Droplet, my UI said it was P/S. When it leveled off the first tamer, it changed to B/B. I think it sometimes just doesn't know the breed until its first "ding."

Eh, breeds are supposed to be something more advanced that your average collector (or even battler) shouldn't worry too much about. Its intentionally not advertised very much. I think the fact that pets on the AH generally sell for about the same regardless of breed is a pretty good sign that that's pretty much how it works out -- people just want the pet, no matter its stats.

I think they just check the stats and make an assumtion from that, but since not all pets have the same base stats it cant say for certain on the breeds at lower level, the further you level the clearer it gets :)

About 1 hour, assuming the smaller wolfs gets killed off.

New hotfix for Moonfang:

Moonfang should now always drop something when defeated.
