Pet Battle week and Pet Treats

Post by Cynner13 » February 12th, 2019, 11:35 am

Does the 200% from the pet battle week stack up with the pet treat xp bonuses?

Yes.

Use Pet Week + Pet Treat + Lesser Pet Treat + Safari Hat and you're into amazing XP. Repeatable Legion tamers will get a pet almost to 25 in one battle this week

But its wasted as you need 2 tamers only from 1-25 anyway...

Assume level 1 pet during the pet week (which you cant turn off) and with a Safari Hat which is also free once its attained and stays on, doing 12,5x tamers (level 25) (vast majority):

- 11238 xp from level 1, puts you at level 17 and 963 xp in.

do another battle

- 13098 xp from level 17, puts you at level 25 and a total of 24336 xp gotten (11238+13098), and total of 23885xp is needed for 25. 451 xp wasted only.

Free premises, highly efficient use of XP. Couldn't be more simple.

Have you tested that this year? I think they changed it so the two treats don't stack anymore :( It would be wonderful if I was wrong though

They stack.

There was an bug discovered at one point that made treats of the same kind stack, so that you could stack multiple burgers for essentially infinite XP. When that was announced as an exploit, they disabled the ability of treats to stack. Once the bug was fixed, they went back to allowing them to stack again. :)

However, Lolfixheal is right. I just checked. With Hat + both Treats + Pet Week, you get 1->19 in one battle, and the second battle to finish the pet will waste a lot of XP. It's more economical to save your Treats if levelling from 1.

What makes you think they changed it out of curiousity? The only notable thing they have changed is BFA tamer experience gains, but haven't seen any buff changes.

Forgot to add my Safari Hat on todays route and thought I'd just add to my previous statements. You still land at level 17 from 1 with Sign of the Critter only XP-source added, land at 600XP in rather 963XP in. Second match still pops your pet to 25 without the hat.

It is idiot proof, you cannot actively fuck this up during petweek :roll: :D

Heh. We're getting old. :) It was temporary, but you were actually in the thread that discussed it when it happened.
