Version 6.0.0a up! I actually apologize for Version 1, there were large glaring mistakes in it that meant it did not live up the promises set by this guide at all. I implore you find it in yourself to give this another go if you tried it already and were not impressed. Thank you.
Currently Under Construction, bless this mess! Sweeping changes coming to the text, once PetExp week is over!
If you're an administrator and about to edit something could you drop me a quick message on discord (same name) I edit up to 200 times a day (no joke) and this way i can close down my edit before you begin yours, Sorry and Thank you in advance!
Terrace's World battlers. sustained levelling and rare capture with TD
- Extremely low barrier for entry, just two level 25 pets instead of hundreds for other activities!
- Travel the World to Level pets instead of visiting the same trainers like a zombie!
- Automatically capture Blue Quality pets you battle to increase your Roster!
- Battle pets whilst you play normally, instead of making it into a separate "Job". It really is fun like this!
- Works along side your Trainer TD scripts, it's not like you have to pick just one!
- Aims for continuous play without spamming bandages or flying around for a Stable Master unlike other TD scripts that suicide 2/3 of your pets and expect YOU to clean up the blood, sweat and tears!
Hello and welcome to the guide! Have you used TD scripts for specific trainer battles and wished you could use some TD scripts out in the open world to battle, level and collect pets? This might really ring true if you spot a Trainer needs a pet you didn't capture yet!
Or have you never even considered pet battles at all because of all the daunting manual work at the start? There's something like 1300 pets out there at the time of writing, can you image opening up 1300 WoWhead tabs to check if "that" pet can be obtained a blue out in the wild before you use a "Quality Changing Battle Stone."
Perhaps you like the play the trainers yourself as interesting content, but find levelling the roster the boring part? No one else has you covered because everyone else has TD working for them the other way around
Then I have good news, you've landed on a great forum page! I've made an incredibly detailed script for almost continuous play in the open world (For example Nazjatar and Mechagon that just released! Even if you have everything right now 8.3 and 9.0 will happen sometime! and I for one will be using my script! )
I'll be providing all the information you need from just telling you what to copy and paste to get going, to de-constructing all the steps in plain English (Under construction again, the script really changed with my patches!) , I have no background in coding, I just love setting up a series of commands in a logical order, it can even be quite fun to troubleshoot what steps should be before and after each other. We're going to make our team up of:
A levelling pet, The Top Slot in the Rematch Window hereby referred to as Slot #1
A Damage pet to make the fights go quickly the middle slot in the Rematch Window hereby referred to as Slot #2
A Healer pet to fall back on if that blue just won't crate for a while hereby referred to as Slot #3
After-battle-heals from victories will rest everyone who participated slightly.
Also don't worry if the import looks like it's all greyed out, this just means you don't own Anubisath Idol and Emerald Proto Whelp, the default choices, You have to drag and drop your own choices

The Team and The ScriptConfused by Pet Battle Zone Levels? Don't worry we were all new once:
These are at the bottom of the page to make sure you read a little of what I needed to say, sorry! You can go there now though if you want, but I promise there is more to know if you stick around.
Whether you don't want to know how it works at all and you just want to use it, or if you're on the first step towards customizing it first you need the script. How to use the addons to import teams and import scripts is outside of the scope of this guide, but hopefully the pictures provided will get you started.
Beginner Difficulty: Tips to get the most out of this
So in addition to the script and what it's all about there's actually a whole bunch of things we can do to make life easier:
Macro Pet Revive into a spell that your WoW character uses all the time, Pet Revive is off the global cooldown and one way to get good use out of it is to use it off of cooldown if you're worried about remembering to use it, sitting on the cooldown when you could have refreshed the team to full.Here's the one I use on my priest, as you can level with pet battles use it on something you get at low level and use frequently in combat, I.E don't just put it on your paladins bubble as you might not even press that key every 10 minutes. To be clear you don't need this, if you are against using Battle Pet Revive like this but it will occasionally res an unlucky battle pet up to every 10 minutes and stop your main pets using swaps / heals for a few rounds
Code: Select all
#showtooltip Mind Blast /cast Revive Battle Pets /cast Mind Blast
If AoE's kill you levelling pet either do the battle again and hope there isn't as much AoE cast, or hope the next pet in your auto queue has more health or kill the critter that starts the battle if you're battling a lot in that area. There's nothing really wrong with the script here, can't account for everything.Use Rematches Leveling Queue! you can click these buttons To make a Queue of pets to automatically swap between and put in the leveling slot we made, the automatic part can get rid of pets that have died or finished leveling for example, it's very dynamic!
Click Fill Queue, Then Descending Level, then Rares First in my opinion.
If a Snare/Root happens in turn one and kills your levelling pet either do the battle again and hope there isn't a snare cast in turn 1, or hope the next pet in your auto queue has more health or kill the critter that starts the battle if you're battling a lot in that area. There's nothing really wrong with the script here, can't account for everything.
If your #2 or #3 pet die use the Revive Battle Pets or change pets if you can to something that isn't racial damage weak to the pets in this area. There's nothing really wrong with the script here, can't account for everything.
Use the Pandaria's Master Tamers, Pandaren Spirit Tamers, Draenor's Master Tamers, Squirtin addition to the Legion World Quests that are up and repeatable to make a fleet of level 4+ pets you can use with this guides team. (Higher Level Pets have less "accidents" along their journey and there's some real safe teams you can use to always level up level 1's without incident garenteed!
Use Rematches ability to set Level Caps on saved EXP Trainers Setting these to level your pets from minimum 1 and maximum level 3 will create a fleet of pets (Level 1 Pets you buy from vendors comes to mind) that can hadle one turn on slot #1 for this script.
If this huge tip helped you then please visit the "how to thank me" sectionYou can set the Scripts auto button to be Mousewheel Scroll UP instead of the default "A", now why would you do this specifically? Well the Warcraft window can read a mouse wheel scroll up / scroll down even if you are not clicked on World of Warcraft this means you can browse awesome websties like Warcraftpets for example without needing an "Always on top" Browser or program. Most of this guide and the script were written whilst pet battling!
I suggest mouse wheel up instead of down so you can zoom out during a pet battle, mouse wheel up to scroll in as a default key is locked until the pet battle is over like this which isn't so bad and zoom out being locked out but it's up to you. Please note that no matter what you are clicked on the scroll up must be pressed whilst mousing over WoW. If the game looks "laggy" you have "Max FPS in background" ticked in WoW > Systems > Advanced. Just turn it off or to a frame rate that looks better.
If during a battle you see that you have 3/3 of a pet you can press Enter to bring up the chat and type /Rematch take a look at that pet and can release / cage pets even during a battle, but I'm unsure if this allows you to capture that pet during this same battle but it's better to do any house cleaning whist you can see the problem right?
In Rematches Options window (bottom right) you can tell rematch to auto load pet teams, "show after loading", "show on injured" and "always show when targeting" this will help you make sure you don't accidentally use my team on a Trainer, brings up a helpful window where you can remember to heal and even equip the Safari Hat, just remember to swap back to Terrace's World Battlers once you are done with the Trainer!
You can use pet battles to level as long as enemy pets are around your top level pets level range Your character also gets exp just like the leveling pet! Here's an example of what a mob gives with rested exp, what exp picking up a herb gives and finally what exp I get after a pet battle on my character! note that this exp doesn't even use up your rested exp. So you have to kill 10 enemies with rested exp in order to get the same exp you get from a pet battle without using up that rested exp. Not bad at all!
Remember the Rematch window does not work in combat and you'll see the blizzard default UI, save checking your pet info for when you are safe! (There's nothing wrong with the mod, the window is just a protected function, even the most popular addons have problems with this, I.E their Config menu will auto hide if you get into combat)Along the same vein as the last tip there are a lot of places in WoW with infinity pet battles, you could if you wanted level from 64 to 120 at this spot in Zul'Drak, I'm not saying you should, it's just an example
Other places include: Rustbolt, Town of Mechagon
North West Shore Drustvar
If you need to go AFK for a second with Warmode off and you don't want mobs to kill you, a pet battle is a great way to do it, and with Terrace's World Battlers out you don't even have to quit the pet battle afterwards! Just make sure you don't have a Darkmoon Faire buff running down, you might be better off logging out after 20 seconds instead!
The script is set up to Capture Blues to save you stones and because generally in pet battling anything less than Blue is useless for the tactic you want to do, blue or broke! For achievements where you just want to capture things for the rewards you can always change the settings or manually intervene!
The Script defaultly has Max Level for the levelling pet as 22, so once it hits 23 with a battle you can use two pet battle stones on it. If you don't like it this way to can change the mix and max level any time outside of a battleYou can remove the line to quit if a levelling pet dies! You might not want to lose that blue in a crate just because a low level pet you could level any other time died.... PFFFT!
You can save multiple copies of the team with diffrent pets if you're a "rich 'mon" and then swap between them as your pets get too injured!
8.0.1 Tip The wild pet Boghopper (Nazmir) Can never be encountered as a Blue Quality pet, so my script will default-ly never capture it (You can edit the script if you are feeling brave or just throw that crate manually!)
8.2 Tip Blizzard added a twilight whelp to Twilight Highlands that always seems to be green quality locked in a pet battle, normally Blizzard do not mess with the quality of a pet in a pet battle but be aware that my script by default will actually never capture this pet (you can always manually throw the crate though!)
Beginner Difficulty F.A.Q.
How you can thank me
Youtube took away the Partner Program for anyone under 1000 subs and now I can't use important tools (that should be available to everyone) such as their checker to see if someone else has uploaded your video and slapped their logo in front of it. I have you click a random video and let it play out muted so it doesn't look weird having a bunch of people all visit the same video and sub without watching anything.Visit my Youtube Page. Click on any Video, click Subscribe on notifications off and then mute the video and let it play in a tab you aren't using. close it later. If you subscribe now while you remember and then unsubscribe later if you dislike it, that works out best for both of us!
Eventually I want a 50 minute video time lapsed to 5 minutes showing the script kicking every pet battles butt without using revive battle pets, but I wanted to release this during pet battle exp week and didn't find the time!
You can also write a line for the script if you think i'm missing something that makes it functionally different and you solemnly swear it isn't just a way to reduce characters and lines
How you shouldn't thank me
Statement: "You're script is huge, I mean really it's massive"
Answer: Yes, Thank you, all the ladies love it.
Statement: "I cn mke ur scrpt shrtr!"
Answer: Plz D'nt.
Statement "This is awesome, but some of the same lines are written different ways, I'm not thanking you, you clearly stole parts of it written by other people!"
Answer: This is a teaching script, I tried to write it out in all the possible ways so that when you take it apart you can write it back how you want it if you so choose, but I can prove I wrote it with two simple lines:
Code: Select all
enemy.type = 10 enemy.type = Mechanical
I also know i wrote it by hand because of all the times I broke the damn thing! I have no background in scripting and troubleshooting was a pain in the butt!
