Pet battle turn changes!?!?!?

Post by Aerozia » July 9th, 2021, 4:35 am

so in 9.1 pvp pet battles i am experiencing something new. now if a pet is swapped, the turn is completely started over. meaning if an undead pet is on its death round, you key up an ability, the next pet is swapped in, and you just lose the turn. now the turn is started over and its between you and the new pet. so now, if you want to cheat, all you need to do is swap a faster(higher speed) pet than your opponent, and you get an extra turn.

edit: i did my 5 pvp wins for the quest. so easy to cheese it if you know you have faster pets, you can swap without penalty. i just creamed a guy by swapping pets and using strong abilties across my team as the cds came up, i got three attacks in at once.

so if your pet gets stunned, swap pets, makes the stun pointless.

speaking of stuns, theres no stun DR, my pet was stunned while immune.

Don't worry about this. There are active bugs. Blizzard seems to have made a partial attempt at a fix, which wasn't entirely successful.

It will get fixed in time. All we can do is wait.

There's some really serious problems that are still around for PvP. Major exploits (which I won't describe) because Patch really screwed up Swap mechanics.

Yeah, it's really screwing up the battle sequence for Super Squirt Day today. Still able to trounce her, but it's taking more rounds.
