Agreed as well! The strat has been updated ^^
Updated breeds with stats instead of toggles so alternatives will show properly.

Thanks for the strategy! It worked after 3 tries. I used a H/P NFD, and H/H Chromium. As I had neither Nightmare Whelping nor Skaley nor Infinite Whelping, I had almost no way of getting this final fight done for the achievements. Just before I almost spent over 50000g for a needed pet, I decided to try my luck today with the drop RNG. Luckily Nightmare Whelping dropped only after 4 runs:)

Barely worked with 62 HP left on my P/P, S/S, P/P team. Had to use Leap to finish it off.

Yes, I used a P/P Harbinger of Flame with Impale to finish this fight.
Worked perfectly.

Patch 10.0.7 hit the PTR today, and this is what we've found so far for pet battles: 18 new pets (some of which come from our old list of mystery pets from launch!), 8 new WQs on the main Isles (4 single targets & 4 tamers), 4 new WQs/fights in The Forbidden Reach, and 1 new achievement.

Battle on the Dragon Isles II

Patch 10.0.5 released today, and with it we get 10 new pets! Nine of these will be from the new Trading Post, and one of them is from a new Primal Storm event in the Primalist Tomorrow.

1 Pet Battle UI Fix for Hunters, Warlocks, & Death Knights

Though I couldn't find anything in the patch notes about it, I did copy over one of each of these classes and tested a pet battle with and without my addons enabled. Even with my pets summoned it appears that everything is back to normal, and your pet's action bars will no longer overlap your pet battle UI!

2 Primal Storm Pet

One Time-Lost mystery has been solved with the release of 10.0.5! When Dragonflight launched we were left with quite a long list of pets that had been datamined, and were still showing up in Blizzard's API, but were not in the journal and did not show a source. Today we can finally take one more name off that list with the Time-Lost Vorquin Foal. It will be available on the vendor Brendormi in The Primalist Future as part of the new Primal Storm event.

Time-Lost Vorquin Foal

It's quite possible this creature is aging backwards. It looks a bit younger every time you see it.

  • Family: Beast
  • Abilities: Hoof, Kick, Headbutt, Chew, Soothe, Stampede
  • Vendor: Brendormi
  • Location: The Primalist Future
  • Cost: 105 x Essence of the Storm & 1,500 Elemental Overflow

3 Trading Post Pets

The newest feature coming February 1st in Dragonflight is the Trading Post, which will offer new and returning items, mounts, and pets for the playerbase to purchase with a new currency called 'Trader's Tender'. Though only one pet was available for purchase on the PTR, the pricing will likely be similar across all the Trading Post pets. It also appears as though we'll be in for the long haul with this collecting venture, as new items only appear once a month. So strap yourselves in, and let's take a look at the new pets we'll be seeing!


His pink antlers make him the life of any party.

  • Family: Beast
  • Abilities: Trample, Deep Freeze, Stampede, Horn Gore, Tough n' Cuddly, Call of Winter

  • Cost: Trader's Tender x 750 (based on PTR price)

  • Family: Beast
  • Abilities: Charge, Headbutt, Lick, Crush, Bash, Rampage
  • Cost: Trader's Tender x ?


He has a heart of gold. Literally. These shiny good-boys are all the rage with affluent gnomes everywhere.

  • Family: Mechanical
  • Abilities: Bite, Powerball, Superbark, Haywire, Reboot, Wind-Up
  • Cost: Trader's Tender x ?

Watcher of the Huntress

Image is not yet available.

To its foes, this Watcher's innocent eyes belie the lethal danger of a prowling Huntress, waiting in the shadows.

  • Family: Flyer
  • Abilities: Savage Talon, Cyclone, Ethereal, Dark Talon, Call Darkness, Nocturnal Strike
  • Cost: Trader's Tender x ?

And that's it for patch 10.0.5! We'll be updating this article when/if any more pet information comes up.

Fireworks burst in a variety of colors across Moonglade's sky in celebration of the Burning Legion's defeat thousands of years ago. Having thwarted the same enemy on the Broken Shore and Argus, the holiday has taken on a deeper meaner for you than in years past. As you travel across Azeroth, honoring your elders and gaining their favor and wisdom, a sense of peace suffuses your being. Though you may face many trials and tribulations on the road ahead, this is a time of happiness and unity. Of course, the good fortune bestowed on those who honor the holiday wouldn't be unwelcome, given your propensity to find yourself neck-deep in all forms of trouble.

Happy Lunar Festival to all! Though this isn't the grandest of holidays celebrated on Azeroth, it does offer pet collectors & battlers two, faction-specific pets: the Lunar Lantern for the Alliance, and the Festival Lantern for the Horde.

Each pet costs 50 Coins of Ancestry, and the pets are tradeable, meaning you can hop onto your AH and purchase the opposite faction's pet (and/or your own).

Coins of Ancestry can be collected through a few quests generally found in Moonglade, as well as visiting the Elders listed in your achievement section for the holiday. If you've already done the achievement, you can check out some add-ons like Candy Buckets, HandyNotes, or TomCat's Tours that will mark your map with the Elders' locations.

So, head on out across the world to collect some venerable wisdom, coins, and a couple of handy pets!

Also, for anyone working on getting the 400 toy achievement pet, Brutus, this event has 12 toys! A big thank you to Toenail for pointing this out last year.

We at Xu-Fu's wish you all the best in your pet collecting endeavors and happy battling!

The time has come, once again, to level all your pets!

The weekly reset brings the pet battle bonus week, and The Sign of the Critter offers a 200% increase on pet experience, so it's the perfect time to tackle that queue.

1 Repeatable Tamers

If you'd like to know what repeatable trainers to look out for this week, head over to our Powerleveling Guide to find out which ones are great for maximizing the use of the bonus xp. It will also offer the top leveling strategies for each of the fights, tips & tricks, and links to non-repeatable tamers as well as other useful guides.

Our widget on the home page will let you know which repeatable Legion tamers are up for the day!

Also, keep an eye out for strategies that have the Level tags for regular, non-repeatable fights. Every little bit counts!

2 Thursday the 12th Super Squirt for European Realms!

Super Squirt is one of those magical days during pet battle bonus week where Squirt is up in your WoD garrison menagerie, and it offers a useful, repeatable battle that does very well in leveling your pets, and has a nearby free heal. Here's where you can find all our Squirt Strats.

Though much emphasis is placed on Super Squirt, there are plenty of viable leveling fights from the repeatable tamers listed in the Powerleveling Guide. If you don't have your garrison up to par for Squirt, you'll likely still get a fair few tamers that will do nicely in Squirt's stead.

We wish you the best of luck in leveling your pets, and hope you have a happy battling week!

Martial arts is a kind of Japanese martial art. It is probably the most widely practiced martial art forms world

empty open hands. In a more deeper understanding, ‘te’ signifies
that your particular body is our main weapon, as opposed to swords, guns, or any object this is certainly physically harmful.
This fighting style was employed by the Ryukyu Islands natives, and was later affected by Chinese
. when Chinese families settled on Okinawa. The karateka consists of punches, kicks and
deflection techniques. The themes of traditional karate training are both fighting and self-defence,
although the mental and moral aspects target the individuals overall improvement.
Karate was developed in Asia (India, China and Japan) over many thousands of years, having countless
martial arts variations and disciplines practiced today. The present day day karate is practiced in
Okinawa, an island situated in Japan. This is often traced returning to the late 17th century, when weapons
were banned by samurai rulers of Japan. The earliest written proof of karate was your message tode
(the Okinawan name when it comes to art). This is through the reference of a Chinese visitor who taught a
form of Kung Fu towards the island. The tode style blended using the fighting styles which have been already
cultivated from the island, known as te (hand). Te was popular in three cities: Shuri, Naha and Tamarai.
Every one of these cities had their particular method of doing fighting styles and modern day styles, including
Shotokan and Shito-ryu (mostly affected by the city of Shuri). Since way back when, experts in
Okinawan martial arts perfected a number of combat styles and forms, because of political situations. The
ruling authorities would ban peasants in using weapons every once in awhile, leaving all of them with
items for your home for protection. And also this contributes to the development of fighting techniques across Asia,
associated with how karate is practiced without weaponry.
A guy named Funakoshi Gichin is credited for carrying karate beyond its geographical roots, by
bringing the elements of Okinawan fighting styles therefore the combat process to mainland Japan, that
progressively reached all of those other world. He brought karate to Japan in 1922, and it is seen and
respected since the father of modern karate. If karate needed to be described in one single sentence, Funakoshi’s
maxim would be the most appropriate: “You never attack first in karate.”

I spent ages working to get the 1500 pets for Proven Pet Parent which I finally got 12/05/22 only to have it nerfed days later!! VERY disappointed! Since the nerf, the pet collection is no longer updating, at first it was not on Blizz but now it seems it is just xufu,


wrote on 2022-12-27 16:49:41

the site is acting weird for me, takes long time to load, then white page, and can not update anything for my pet collection or my profile. Are they in maintenance mode ? I will make a last attempt and then stop the link with my battle net until i know its safe

wrote on 2022-12-22 15:39:52

They literally must have done that within the past week or so because I was JUST working towards that over the past few weeks and I am only FIVE pets away from the 1500. I'm so mad now. (edited)

Will tdBattlePetScript Rematch and tdBattlePetScript be updated?
They seem to cause issues with the prepatch stuff :(


wrote on 2022-10-26 17:03:25

Pretty sure they will be. Usually it just takes a bit before the authors had the chance to make the necessary changes to it and release a new version


wrote on 2022-10-27 01:32:27

Indeed, a horrible experience without tdBattlePetScript. Had to do pet battles today by clicking the correct ability button each round! On top of that, BattlePetBreedID seems broken too. Guess I'll suspend my pet activities until someone fixes these ;)

wrote on 2022-11-01 20:21:00

Are you getting any actual errors with tdBattlePetScript Rematch, or is it just saying out of date? Because if it's working and you are not getting errors, I wouldn't worry about it.


wrote on 2022-11-08 16:23:45

tdBattlePetScript Rematch works fine for me.

@Shadow11, Blizz's "Outdated" check is a fake check, as it just reads a number in the addon's index file (toc). That is, if my addon is completely incompatible with a new game version because of API changes, I can make it "updated" for Blizz' check by just updating that number, even if the addon crashes your game, freezes your computer and drinks your beer.

Many addons that haven't seen updates for months or even years are still 100% compatible. Maybe they are truly abandoned (and still work or not), or maybe the author just decided to not waste his time with toc updates, if the addon is not affected by the last patch changes.


wrote on 2022-11-09 22:09:58

Note there is a new tdBattlePetScript version. It's called "Pet Battle Scripts" PBS. tdBattlePetScript Rematch is no longer needed.

Yes, it is really reassuring to know that we now have an actively developed continuation of the old addon. I've always dreaded the day when tdBattleScript stops working and no one can fix it.

Thanks !


wrote on 2022-06-10 11:31:50

Hey, yes there is!
If you go here https://www.wow-petguide.com/Profile/Collection you'll see a blue "Export to Excel" button. Download the sheet, open it in Excel (or google sheets or whichever you prefer) and you'll have a much more detailled list of all pets. It has the ownership percentages included in one of the columns towards the right and you can sort/filter to your liking.

Fair warning though, this percentage is only taking collections into account that are present here on Xu-Fu's, that means mostly people who are into pet battles. The numbers across all WoW are likely much lower.

We don't have a dedicated list for them but if you go through each Dungeon section, the pets you can get are listed in the articles. And if you hover over each of them you can see if you already have it or not :)

Thanks for looking at it. If it helps, when I checked few weeks ago (from the same computer), I think it actually said 3/24. But changed before the actual day-of. Perhaps some new code got deployed?


wrote on 2022-03-28 08:52:56

My current theory is that the server move changed it. New server appears to treat daylight savings and timezones differently. I've added a bunch of tracking and logging to it now so I can see what exactly is happening.

But in all honesty, I'll probably have to rewrite most of that widget... yay! :D

I'm happy to hear that you are recovering, and still enjoying pets. Be well! If you want more conversation with pet battlers, who are the friendliest community in WoW, you would be welcome in Xu-Fu's Discord, a link to which which ts above this on the right-hand side, or in the Warcraft Pets Discord.

Both are pretty quiet by Discord standards, but always friendly. :D

Have a look at the Elekk Great Big Adventure achievement https://www.wow-petguide.com/Section/12/An_Awfully_Big_Adventure

If you have a roster of the standard Level 25 pets, you will probably find a suitable strat in there. Not so much for Kalimdor/Eastern Kingdoms, because any Level 25 Blue will just destroy everything you face.

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.

Give it a try at a later point. The news are being loaded when you click and the server is currently a bit ... slow in responding, sometimes crashing. Could be that you clicked when exactly that was the case.

wrote on 2020-06-17 11:37:39

I think the XP tables (the tooltip XP tables on the strats) need an update. I noticed this already a while ago on another occasion, and currently I’m leveling with Sir Galveston (pet Battles Bonus Event week), and I can definitely level a level-1 pet to 25 in two goes with just the Safari Hat on.

According to your table I would have to add a Lesser Pet Trait in order to accomplish in two turns.

With only Safari Hat it goes 1 --> 17 and then 17 --> 25. Not, as suggested, 17 --> 24.

As said, I think this is not only a Pet-Battle-Week-thingy, the tables seem to be slightly off in general.

PS: Why does the “edited” in posts appear with uninterpreted formatting tags? Or is it just my browser? (edited)


wrote on 2020-06-17 16:12:45


Been a while since I tinkered with those tables ^^ Perhaps there's some other effect stacking onto it? I have to dig into it. Thanks for flagging it!
I'm currently working on another feature that I want to get out first but I've logged it as a bug:


Oh and... the reformatting of the formatting tags here is also a bug :-(


wrote on 2020-06-18 10:17:43

I can’t think of any other stacking effects I could have had. (Unless Black Iron Dwarfs have a hidden pet XP bonus racial ;) Hey, that would be a great racial!) Are there any others besides the buffs listed in your XP tables?

Will double-check today or tomorrow for any buffs.


wrote on 2020-06-18 11:50:07

Here some results from a Draenor round-trip today (all with Sign of the Critter and Safari Hat):

[The “XP” are the gained experience points according to the log.]

Ashley: 1 --> 19 with 13485 XP; table is correct
Vesharr: 1 --> 17 with 11238 XP; table is correct
Teralune: 17 --> 25 with 12647 XP; table says: 17 --> 24 with 13098 XP
Tarr the Terrible: 17 --> 25 with 12647 XP; table says: 17 --> 24 with 13098 XP
Gargra: 13 --> 23 with 14493 XP; table is correct
Cymre Brightblade: 1 --> 17 with 11238 XP; table is correct


Your tables are correct for the low-level (1; Ashley, Vesharr, Cymre) and mid-level (13; Gargra) range. But in the high-mid range (17; Teralune and Tarr) it seems Blizz has lowered the XP requirements (i.e., you gain more levels with less XP).

This would also be coherent with what I’ve seen yesterday with the Sir Galveston grind.

BTW: This was on different toon than yesterday; so, unfortunately, no Dark Iron Dwarf bonus racial ;-)


wrote on 2020-06-18 17:36:13

Tiffany Nelson (Hat and Battle Week):

17 --> 25 with 12647; table says: 17 --> 24 with 13098

I stop tracking here, since it just seems to confirm the Draenor results.

Let me know if you want more raw data.


wrote on 2020-06-27 10:54:55

wrote on 2021-06-17 15:26:08

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.

Cool! I bookmarked it. Although it would be good to see the live strat stats, too.


wrote on 2021-08-20 04:12:32

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 ...


wrote on 2021-08-20 04:15:01

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


wrote on 2021-08-26 23:47:08

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.


wrote on 2021-11-22 13:53:05

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.


wrote on 2021-11-22 18:20:06

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.


wrote on 2021-11-23 11:31:12

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.


wrote on 2021-11-24 16:30:59

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.

Hello! ive noticed in EU Super Squirt Day happens on 7th april, but thats day when pet event battle ends (its wednesday reset) anyone knows right day for it??

//edit ive researched and seems like all mess with blizz event changes cancelled super squirt for eu, would it be possible maybe to make note or change it for some random day so people wont think its soon when it wont be?

just an idea (edited)


wrote on 2021-03-29 19:58:03

Yeah I just recently checked the calendar and it seems it's just a bad overlap and the various squirt trackers are not working well with it. Squirt seems to be up on the 7th, but the problem is Squirt is up starting from the weekly reset, and the pet battle week technically still is active for a couple hours on the 7th, but BEFORE the weekly reset. The tracker doesn't seem to take the hours into account and only the day, which is why it shows the incorrect date.

Daylight savings time has changed when you need to poll blizzard to see what active legion leveling quests are active.


wrote on 2021-03-16 14:17:52

It is currently 1:15 PM CST in the US (a few hours after the Tues. reset) and Master of Pets is not active. Love the site, please don't take this as a complaint, but you may have a bug with the active Legion WQ info in the "Leveling Opportunities" section.

Three of my six pet battle accounts were just banned for no reason.

I used to multibox pet battles. I don't use any broadcast software, hacks or Bots, I used add-ons and scroll up and scroll down on my mouse. My three new characters were standing next to Sir Galveston the pet trainer WQ in Dalaran waiting for their pet heal to come off cooldown, when they were evidently reported for cheating.

Not getting my three accounts unbanned.

I've looked everywhere to answer this question but I can't find anything. Does anyone know of a webpage or add-on that shows which world quests offer Polished Pet Charms each day? I have thousands of bandages and lesser pet charms, so I don't want to do those quests. I only want to do the ones that offer PPC, but I feel like I miss some every day.

I would also like to know.

World Quest Tracker might be what you're looking for. There isn't one specifically for pet battles, as far as I'm aware, so it'll track all available WQs. However, they have different symbols next to the WQs to represent the rewards:

This is a pretty major bug that showed up at prepatch. It sems to be related to accounts that bought charactre services.

More things may have been reset than just that title, so check your various progress with pets. Also Mechagon Minis, of all things ...

I hope they will fix these problems, I contacted a GM and he only gave me back my 1500 pets option, for the missing dungeon portals/resetted quests the only response was "I can't do anything about it" I'm super upset that it has to be like this..

My tdBattlePetScript editor does not work. Last version on Twitch is quite old and seems to be incompatible with the 9.0.1 prepatch. "Write Script" option shows up in Rematch but th eeditor does not open up. Any other idea how to attach a script to a team?


wrote on 2020-10-15 04:14:54

This is not a very good solution, but one thing you can do is load the team in, make sure you note the name of the strategy so you can find it, exit the game and go search the Settings file (tsBattlePetScript.lua) in the "Drive:/World of Warcraft/_retail_/WTF/Account/<ACCOUNTID>/SavedVariables" for that name and then you can paste the script in there with the same formatting as the other scripts you have saved, replace line breaks with "/n" (except you have to use the backslash, not the forward slash but I can't write that in this message because it's a banned character and gets stripped out of the message) and save it. Then relaunch the game and you should have a script for that team.

Not an ideal solution, hopefully it will not be broken for long :p

If you're not confident that you can do it without breaking stuff then I don't know of another way to do it.

Sorry if this is a dumb question but is it possible for me to save all my td scripts and rematch teams and copy and paste them on another computer? I play on a PC but I also have a laptop that I play on sometimes and I'd like to be able to use my pet battle stuff on the laptop as well, in addition to just backing up all this info. Is there an easy way to sync this up with the laptop or at least copy and paste the files? Thanks!


wrote on 2020-06-18 10:26:05

Just copy the preference files of the add-ons.

Rematch: Rematch.lua
TDBattleScript: tdBattlePetScript.lua

The file path (on a Mac) is like this:

/Applications/World of Warcraft/_retail_/WTF/Account/428082657#1/SavedVariables/Rematch.lua

where the account number will be a different one for you, obviously.
Path structure should be similar on Windows.


wrote on 2020-06-22 11:13:25

I found the lua files and copied the rematch file into the laptop folder. The teams are all there when I launch the game! I forgot to save the td scripts lua file to my drop box because I'm a herp derp but I will get to that next. Thank you so much!


wrote on 2020-06-26 13:18:42

The TD Scripts prefs file should be in the same folder as the Rematch one (“SavedVariables”, path see above) — unless you explicitly and manually deleted it, or deleted it via Twitch Client. (Even if you never synced it to your DropBox folder, I want to say.)

What I would do in any case, is a regular and automated backup of the whole WTF folder. Ideally this is a versioned backup, so that you can go back if something got messed up.


wrote on 2020-06-26 17:24:20

I was able to put the td scripts lua file on my laptop and everything matches up now. I will look into automated backing up of the WTF folder. Thanks again :)

wrote on 2020-04-01 13:40:10

From your profile. I see that you are a new battler, and hav just captured some level 10 pets. Good start!

What would you like to know?

You should do the quests for the Tamers in Kalimdor (for Horde) or Eastern Kingdoms (for Alliance) and basically keep battling and beating the tamers as soon as you can.

This site doesn't explain the low-level tamers, because they are not hard enough. If you are having problems with one, your best bet is to get an extra level or two with your pets and try again, or capture some new pets that are good against that Tamer's pets.


wrote on 2020-04-01 16:29:35

new battler? ok then i agree with grainne: focus on getting the main quest line done first. also have a look at the most used pets in pve and try to obtain some of those (most are buyable) -> https://www.wow-petguide.com/index.php?m=MostUsedPets


wrote on 2020-02-22 19:47:57

I'm having an issue logging in on the browser I normally use (Firefox, I'm using Edge to make this post). When I try to log in with my Battlenet ID on Firefox, for some reason it logs me in on my second account and not my main account. I don't get any options as to which account to choose. I'm logged in on the proper account on blizzard.net, the launcher is logged on the proper account, but this page insists on using that other account to log in, and creates a new account. Obviously, this is a problem because all my pets are on this one (the other one is just for RAF). I've deleted the cookies, cleared the cache, quit Firefox and restarted it. I've deleted that new account that gets created, and tried logging in again and it just recreates that account with that battlenet id. I'm at my wits end trying to get logged in on the proper browser. Any ideas? (I can also log in to this account with Firefox on my Mac with no problem.)


wrote on 2020-02-24 16:56:44


That's a really, really odd one. Usually when that happens, you are logged into the other Battle.net account *on your browser* (the battle.net app has nothing to do with this).
Just as an explanation, when you hit that "Login with Battle.net" button, Xu-Fu redirects you in the background to battle.net where it checks for authorization. If there is none, it will prompt you (you did this at the very beginning, first time you logged into Xu-Fu's). And if there is already an authorization it throws you right back to Xu-Fu letting the page know which battle.net ID it is. So whichever account is logged in on battle.net, that one will be sent back to Xu-Fu.

If you go to battle.net on Firefox and log out then into the correct account, you say this still happens?
Have you perhaps tried clearing the battle.net cookies as well?

If that doesn't work, there's one more thing you could try: go to your account security settings on Battle.net and check the connected apps on both your accounts. You'll find Xu-Fu in there. Just delete the connection both times and then log out of the battle.net website.
Then go back here and click the button. It will send you to battle.net and ask you to log in - you can then log in with the *correct* bnet account and this should bring you back here.

Sorry for this being so troublesome for you. I hope it will be solved with that but do let me know if you keep having issues!

Just thought I'd introduce those who are unaware to the root meaning of the word that is going to hit this site when Shadowlands launches.

There are so many changes coming that a massive amount of strategies are going to need to be changed. I would like to offer the - at least temporary - solution (I'm not a mod/admin so I don't know if it has already been put forward) of adding tags back to strategies, specifically a tag to denote whether or not the strategy is viable in Shadowlands content (bearing in mind; some people may not have purchased the xpac). (edited)


wrote on 2020-01-07 05:01:40

Yeah, we're aware. A tag for Shadowlands already exists and once we know more details about the exact changes coming and what will be affected, we will tag all strategies affected by it. Might be a big clean-up process that will happen with Shadowlands.

By the way, there will also be a Patch 8.3. tag appearing soon on about 200 strategies due to the changes in some weather effects.

For some reason, none of the new 8.3 strategies are loading into Rematch with a target. Thus, they don't autoload when interacting with the target.

Please stop make the page re-posting comments when reloding the page!

Learned this today: posted a comment, came back later to see if there was any feedback, reloaded the page: the page posted a copy of my comment. That was not what I wanted. I just wanted to check if my comment was posted and if there were some responses. I did not want to post a copy of my comment from 5 hours ago. And, a humble guess, I think the majority of the users are not expecting such behavior either.

Thanks, and, as said, I love your (this) site.

OK. I’ll try it again with this comment reply. I’ll leave the page open and come back in a couple of hours to reload the page. (This was the scenario, IIRC. Though I’m not sure if the problematic comment was a real comment or a reply to a comment, like this one.) Anyway, I’ll report back then.


wrote on 2019-03-01 11:21:46

OK, have reloaded the page now (3 or 4 hours after posting) and… everything fine this time (that is, I got the confirmation dialog). So, no idea what did provoke the faulty behaviour the other day. The state of the cache? Or maybe I had some setting activated in the Develop menu that prevented the sheet from coming up?
When/if it occurs again, I’ll post it here.
