Way too RNG dependent.
Not working for me either. Couldn't even kill the first pet before I was wiped out.
Totaly! Thank you! - - It is something like this: - - Turn 1: Leap - Turn 2: Leap - Turn 3: Dodge - Turn 4: Leap - Turn 5: Leap - Turn 6: Leap - - Runehoff commes in. - Turn 1: Leap - Turn 2: Dodge - Turn 3: Leap - Turn 4 Leap - Turn 5: Leap - - Bring in your Eldrich Manafiend. - Turn 1: Arcane Storm - (If stunned, restart - RNG part) - Turn 2: Surge of Power - Bring in your Arcane Eye. - Turns 3: Drain Power - - Duster comes in - Turns 1: Mana Surge
I personally replaced the eye with a Lofty Libram (1,2,2). Used curse of doom like the strat uses, then at the end when it got swapped in I used amplify magic, then arcane blast untill Chipper died (it took 2 blasts for me)
I personally replaced the nether ray with Cap'n Crackers (1,2,1). Ikky died to Chipper's Wind Buffet ability, then Cap'n Crackers came in. I used Warning Squawk (since Chipper was using Lift Off), then I just spammed Coin Toss until he died.
GCSuns wrote today on: Natural Defenders
Some script edits if you want Sunreaver to fight to the death with Laser instead of passing, and then Chrominius to skip Howl if the enemy's HP is low enough. - - if [self(#2).active] - ability(#3) [!self.aura(Supercharged:207).exists & enemy(#2).active] - ability(#2) - ability(#1) - endif - - if [self(#3).active] - ability(#2) [!enemy.aura(Howl:1725).exists & enemy(#3).hp>1110] - ability(#3) - endif
It worked flawlessly in my first try! Thank you!
Totally worked with tail sweep.
Gilraentasa wrote today on: Treasure
I am already behind as I only started today with the game, however it seems there is no competition at all with people being able to generate 3400 anima per hour and being in the top spot of all categories with over 110000 coins donated across the covenants.
Awesome strat! PS Stormborne Whelpling sometimes solos the fight, and dies to the Curse of Doom in round 10 along with enemy Delicate Moth, giving TWO level pets XP. - If the Whelpling doesn't defeat Delicate Moth, he usually leaves him with only 85hp, and most #1 abilities of the level pet can finish it off and earn the full amount of XP since the additional level pet never gets swapped in.

PET NEWS - BY DRAGONSAFTERDARK

Patch 9.2, the last major patch of Shadowland's expansion, was announced today, and with it came some interesting models and concept art that we might see in the land of the First Ones: Zereth Mortis



Crafting creatures that we have never seen before is always a challenging and creative experience. The wildlife displays a fusion of both the energies emanating within the land and the design motifs you will see throughout the biomes. This is just a small snippet of the creatures that you will see, but we wanted to make sure that our world feels like it is lived in.

















We knew we wanted to create a space that transcended the darkness that we saw in the shadowlands, a place of peace and solitude. We gravitated towards cooler tones, high-key values, and softer textures; much of our decision making was based around a desire to create a place that was inviting, yet mysterious, for everyone to explore.

Gabe Gonzalez – Environment Art Supervisor













The Progenitor jellyfish is a creature that needed to be both wild and created by higher beings. We wanted the translucency of the creature to show it’s inner working and tie it to other creatures of the same theme.



The idea for the Devourer worm was to make a horrific creature that traps its prey with its oversized mandibles and consumes its victim’s energy through its inner mouth. Just like the other devourers we wanted an other worldly look, something between deep sea creatures and also alien to Azeroth.



And we also have a Progenitor Chicken, which answers the question of; 'What came first?'.

Sara Wons -- Senior Level Designer




And that's it so far! Do you like the concept art, and the appearance of the models? We have everything from the familiar, like gulpers, bunnies, and devourers, to the downright strange like axolotls and some kind of chonky beast that's looks like it's ready to play fetch. Eternity might be ending, but if we have time to craft new sigils, we definitely have time to catch some of these delightful Zereth Mortis inhabitants, and I, personally, cannot wait to see what new pets they have in store for us in patch 9.2.

Until next time, we at Xu-Fu's wish you all the best in your pet collecting endeavors, and happy battling!

It takes up too much space, especially when there's already plenty of scrolling involved on the page. I'd use an element picker to hide it, but unfortunately I can't get it to not also hide the rest of the article news displayed here. (edited)

I see, okay! Would an expanding bar work for you? So by default there's only a small bar saying "More News" and nothing else. And if you click on it it would expand down into the longer table.

An option to collapse the section would be much appreciated, if it's possible. If not, it is what it is.

Have they nerfed Squirt? It seems that it isnt giving the old amount when leveling a pet from 1 to 25. It starts at 8,11,13,17,20,23,24 25

Hey, a weird thing is happening on Xu-Fu account. It keeps defaulting to Kr/Tw for things like the Squirt day counter on the front screen. I play in the US

i can not find how to change the default key. also when you "mass rematch export" why doesn't the TD scripts come with the teams? i have to load TD script separately.

TD is a separate addon and does not allow a mass-import, that's why it's sadly not possible to do that in one go.

Love the site! Would it be possible to add a CSV or spreadsheet export to the "ready" lists? I would like to import it into LibreOffice Calc so I can track which pets I need to obtain, level and rarify. I tried copy/paste from 3 different browsers and also the text import tool, but stuff was coming out in the wrong columns. Thanks!

An idea, not sure how easy it would be... allow a user to search strats by pet? When I upgrade a pet to max, I wish I knew if there were strats using that pet that might be better than the ones I was already using.

I like this idea... it would help me figure out what breed would be best to catch, too!

That is not as simple as it sounds. In some cases, a strat may specify one or more breeds, like P/S and S/S but in many others will specify absolute stats, like Speed > 305. And then there are substitutes ...

Anyway, Solitha, you can seatch strats by pet.

Go to the Search box at the top, type in Iron Starlette, hit Search, choose Strategies tab: https://www.wow-petguide.com/Pet/77221/Iron_Starlette/Strategies

Ah, thanks. I tried that, but apparently with the wrong pet. If there are no strats for the pet the tab doesn't appear... so I didn't know there even was one.

While I love that list, and consult it often when deciding on missing assorted pets, it's from 2019. Many new pets, new fights, new reasons to have other breeds of old pets. Still chuckle at the idea few would be interested. My husband won't bother catching a wild pet until I've discussed how I've used it recently-ish, and what the percentages are of the breeds on the list. This included the Silithid Hatchling, during the darn sandstorm! Would be awesome if this was a regular updated survey, or something. Probably difficult, getting the top battlers to update such a thing per new expansion, and then compile it though.

Ugh. I did start to update it for 2021. I never finished. So sad that so many of the Old Reliables have gone, or at least are not getting new pets. I should get back to it tho.

You can look at the ratio of breeds among users of Xu-Fu in the new Pet Statistics, but I wouldn't trust those, I'm afraid. The 2019 Survey has Fiendish Imp at S/S(76%),P/S(13%),P/B(11%), which is sane, while the Statistics show that among Xu-Fu users the numbers are S/S(37%),P/S(32%),P/B(31%) https://www.wow-petguide.com/Pet/71033/Fiendish_Imp/Stats and the vast superiority of the S/S doesn't show up at all.

One problem, though, is that so many of the new pets just don't matter for battling. I've largely stopped caring about Deathroach-ish breeds myself.

Ah, yeah. I keep reading all that about battlers, and new pets. Fingers crossed something good emerges. Eventually.

We had a WoW break during the time the new exp came out, so playing catch up. (We weren't thrilled about how the general game lore was going.) Loving the new wild pet battle exp. Found out when I was working down my "Go sort out..." list. Usually toss as many similar level queue pets in a capture team as reasonable, for what used to be almost pointless exp. Shocked about the dead leveling 50% deal too, although, would rather never 'enjoy' that if possible during tamer leveling. Still may make the occasional rng or bug issue less of a time waster. Not looking forward to seeing what changed with flurry, etc. One of my favorite things included finding sets of wild pets to use in somewhat reliable strats. Hope that's not broken all of those up.

Too bad the statistics wouldn't use something like max level win results 2 or more to count as a 'battle pet' breed held by the player. Which would still be off, but at least it means the pet of that breed was used in an actual pet battle by at least that player.

I just upgraded to Shadowlands (Black Friday deals) for myself and my 2 kids. I'm not too thrilled about all of the death and afterlife lore coming out of it. I played "Classic" and Burning Crusade back when they weren't classic and then took a break. More like quit... instead of writing LUA for addons I learned/started writing Visual Basic and C# for actual work :)

It's normal in that we know about it, but it's likely a bug that will go unfixed.
