Upgrade to rare

Postby FuxieDK » October 12th, 2018, 1:16 am

In a fit of insanity, I have stoned some wild pets, thus "wasting" the stones..
With the extreme amount of none-rare vendor/IE pets, battle stones are much sought after... The only problem, to date, there have been one or two WQs that yielded battle stones... Tons and tons of training stones, but (almost) never battle stones..

And since I spent 2000+ pre launch on level 25 stones, how the %{#{^{^ do I get all the annoying pets upgraded? It cannot be expected that I go back to previous expansions to get stones, can it?


Anyone else with the same issue?

There were a couple this pat week. Although one was in a miserable place for me to go to so I skipped it.

Two things you should do. Keep doing Crysa and Environeer Bert. Even if you don't get the unmarked stone, you may end up with the right family or you could get 3 of a kind. I just list those because they are easy. But it would work for any that you can park an alt at.

You should also take a peek at the Broken Isles from time to time. Madam Vicosia had a WQ up for a Flawless stone and I was able to get one on 8 alts. Kind of a long shot, but worth keeping in mind.

Hop in your DeLorean and go back to stop yourself from spending the charms on leveling stones instead of rarity stones. :P

I’ve never felt they are difficult to get though. Check the Legion WQs. Can do the Mists tamers too. I get stones from those bags fairly frequently.

Eventually as we go deeper into BFA polished charms will be easier to acquire and it won’t feel as much of a setback to use them for stones as well.

I have plenty of these stones because I level alts mainly thru pet battles. just plop an alt you aren't in a rush to level in front of the old battle tamers. it levels the toon, it levels your pets and it gets you plenty of stones.

Alts are an excellent way to generate a ton of charms and stones every time a WQ is available, as well as level whatever new pet I may have received recently. I just finished buying all the charm pets a couple days ago, but I'm still working on my 8th alt so I can buy the portal on 8.1 release and have a healthy stock in reserve.

Right now I see 3 world quests up for Marked Flawless Battle Stones... And this isn't the first time multiple rare stones have popped up. I know it seems few and far between when the WQ's don't give you what you need, but there are other people who aren't in the same boat as you. Those people may need to level pets vs make them rare.

I went several days with no Polished Charm WQ's, and I don't need anything else.... You have a choice, you can do old content (which will take you no time at all) to save up old charms, or use your new Polished Stones to buy rare tokens. You probably won't get enough rare stones from world quests so the reliable way is to do Legion WQ's for charms to buy the tokens. And you certainly aren't going to spend the new charms on rare stones.

Not sure why you spent all your shiny charms on leveling stones. To me, there are plenty of options to level from grinding certain areas, waiting until pet bonus weekly, doing MoP/WoD trainers, Squirt, and leveling stones. For rares, you can only hunt wilds and that is the extent of it. If it comes as a non-rare from any other source, you are forced to use a stone if you want to have it rare and stones are a lot more limited and RNG based comparatively.

And also not sure why people are so rushed for polished pet charms/flawless pet stones when we are just 2 months into the expansion. You have plenty of time to earn them over the expansion and if you want to earn more at a quicker pace, then level up more alts for that many more charms/stones.
