Pet battles bugged in 8.0

Post by Ergroka71 » July 18th, 2018, 2:26 pm

Has anyone noticed pet battles being bugged since 8.0 went live? I've done several battles after 8.0 went live and every time one of my pet dies, either in combat or via ability (i.e. Haunt), I get no option to put the next pet on my team into battle. In essence, being unable to continue the battle if I can't win with a single pet. I use Rematch, but it was updated for 8.0. I even tried it with rematch disabled.

So it's not just me. I submitted a couple bug reports about it last night, just thought I would ask my fellow pet aficionados.

I've done several WQ pet battles myself and haven't had any issues so far. I'll be sure to bug report any problems when they pop up and come post here again.

Maybe test without addons? People on the Discord were saying that Pet Tracker hasn't been updated and is causing problems. I suspect Rematch will be ok, since Gello is well ahead of the curve, for which we should all be thankful, but you never know when Blizzard will zig instead of zag.

Yeah, it is definitely the addon Pet Tracker. Sadly. It was updated for 7.3 but 8.0 is breaking LOTS of things. Fingers crossed we get an update for it before the expansion comes.

I am using PetTracker on Beta and never had problems, didn't test it on 8.0 Live... but maybe it's enough to uncheck the PetTracker Switcher part in addons. I did that ages ago because it was causing trouble and I liked standard pet switching more.

Had the same thing, will disable add on.

Is the xu fu site down? I tried to access last night, couldn’t pull it up.

Sleepysam, it's back up now. Aranesh posted in the Discord that the webhosting company had technical problems.

Discord had an outage yesterday as well, and so did my ISP. Every time Blizzard do an expansion or prepatch launch, the Internet breaks. :P
