"This is a 50% chance to hit, restart if it misses" Nocturnal Strike always hits if enemy is blinded. Darkness weather effect means everyone is blinded.

Ty, I managed to swap from tdPetBattleScripts to Pet Battle Scripts with no hassle. I've got all my teams and scripts working.

Very smooth.
Seriously, don't use this strat. The fight is awful and heavily RNG based, so you do not want to use a strat that relies on you dodging sleep and crits and too many mothballs for 40+ rounds. - - Use one of the other RNG strats (or just skip this fight entirely).

At 3pm PST on 28 November, Dragonflight will launch across the world, and whatever your priority on launch is we at Xu-Fu's have all the pet battling resources you could hope for!

For the initial collecting rush, we have our Dragonflight Compilation article here. This has all the information currently available to us about battle pets, and will be updated as more information is discovered. Maybe you'll be the person to discover one of the Hidden pets!

If you're looking to collect the lovely Lady Feathersworth, we have our Family Battler of the Dragon Isles section. Whether you're looking for one strategy or the whole collection, you'll find everything you need to complete the Family Battler of the Dragon Isles achievement. While you're there, feel free to add some strategies of your own! And don't forget: if you've imported your roster to the site, you can go to the Family Battler of the Dragon Isles main page and hit the 'All Families' button. The site will match all the best strategies that match your roster, and provide you with a mass import Rematch string to load all your teams into Rematch!

For those of you who are racing to reach max level and hit that reputation grind for the faction Renown, we have our World Quest section, and just like the Family Battler section you can hit the 'Load Pet Table' button to snag all the best strategies based on your roster.

New patches and expansions breaking addons is as regular as the sunrise, and pet battle addons are no exception! However, this also ushers in the chance for improvements and some of the addon creators in the community have done just that. We used to need two addons--tdPetBattleScripts & tdPetBattleScripts Rematch--to run tdscripts in Rematch. Now they've been combined into a single addon called Pet Battle Scripts! So a big thank you to Super and all those who collaborated on this to update the addon! Note: Please read the Getting Started section on Curseforge before you download or remove addons

If you're not quite to the point where you're using level 25 strategies and you're looking to get started on your pet battle journey, you should head to Valdrakken and visit Jyhanna's Pet Battle Introduction quest chain. By the end of this chain you'll have 3 level 25 Rare battle pets, which will make it much easier for you to pick up caged 25s on the Auction House to expand your collection for more battles!

As we move into a new expansion, we at Xu-Fu's want to thank our wonderful community for all your support and contributions to the site, and we look forward to seeing you on the Dragon Isles: happy battling!

PET NEWS - BY DRAGONSAFTERDARK
2022-11-20 12:08:42
Tables groan beneath the weight of a variety of dishes, and boisterous conversation fills the air over many a tankard of drink. Stories of glory and thanks are traded like precious gold, as friends new and old take their seats. Every cook and kitchen within the capital cities tirelessly churn out platter upon platter of food, as the citizens of Azeroth make the pilgrimage from far and wide to celebrate the week of Pilgrim’s Bounty.

Just as you lean forward to take the first bite of your favorite dish, something warm lands on your head. As the conversation at your table quiets, a substance that looks suspiciously like candied sweet potatoes runs down and lands on your plate. When you look up at the person across from you, you’re met with mischievous eyes and a barely suppressed grin. You bare your teeth in return, and then grab a handful of cranberry chutney as you utter a cry of; “Food fight!”



It’s Pilgrim’s Bounty week on Azeroth, and it’s, ‘…a time to reflect upon one’s good fortune and share with all around you’. It’s one of the major holidays celebrated in-game, and it runs for just under seven full days.

2020: 11/20 10:00 a.m. – 11/27 09:00 a.m. (based on NA times and dates)

Pilgrim’s Bounty offers two: Bush Chicken & Plump Turkey. Below, we’ll detail how you can get these two holiday pets, and add these delicious—I mean adorable!—pets to your roster.


1 Bush Chicken





"Following their introduction to the mainland by the goblins, Bush Chickens have become the entre du jour for Pilgrim's Bounty due to their high deliciousness and low intelligence.

The Bush Chicken is the easiest to get of the two. This pet is cageable, so one of the ways is to purchase one off the Auction House.

The other way is to complete the dailies for Pilgrim’s Bounty:

  • Can’t Get Enough Turkey
  • Easy as Pie
  • She Says Potato
  • Don’t Forget the Stuffing!
  • We’re Out of Cranberry Chutney Again?


Each daily will require 20 of each food item.

These dailies reward an item called Pilgrim’s Bounty, and it’ll be filled with seasonal fare for the holiday. Among these items is the Frightened Bush Chicken, which will, of course, teach you the pet. Wowhead reports there’s about a 3% chance for the pet to drop.

If you’re looking to complete everything for the holiday, your best bet is to do the dailies every day, and if you don’t manage to get the drop you can purchase the pet off the AH. By the end of the holiday, the market has usually flooded with the holiday pets, so the prices should see a nice drop at that point.


2 Plump Turkey






He's humble, clairvoyant, and delicious with cranberry sauce.


The Plump Turkey is the more time-consuming of the two, since it’s one of the rewards for the meta achievement for the holiday: Pilgrim.



This pet is not tradeable, and is unique, therefore you can only learn one.

There are 9 sub-achievements for the meta achievement, and we’ll tell you how you can complete each one. It may seem a touch daunting, but most of them are fairly easy, so never fear!



2.1 Sharing is Caring, “FOOD FIGHT!”, & Pilgrim’s Paunch



These achievements are generally the easiest of the lot, and you can complete them as you make the rounds to all the capital cities doing your cooking dailies & quests. For Horde, this means starting in Undercity, and for Alliance it’ll be Stormwind.

However, none of the dailies send you out to the 4th capital needed by each faction: Silvermoon City & The Exodar. So, once you complete your cooking dailies & quests, head out to these capitals to finish Pilgrim’s Paunch.

Sharing is Caring & “FOOD FIGHT!” can be completed at about the same time, as long as there’s another player at the table with you. When you sit down, you’ll get a special interface bar, like when you’re in a vehicle, and it’ll give you the option to eat or share. If other food has been passed to that chair, it’ll be an option to eat that food, too.



For Sharing is Caring, all you have to do is share each dish (5) found at the table with another chair, doesn’t matter which one. Simple as that. If you’re looking to get the “FOOD FIGHT!” achievement, target a player/chair, and share the food until you get the achievement. It’s that simple! However, a player does need to be in the chair.



For Pilgrim’s Paunch, you need to eat 5 stacks of food from each chair to gain the Spirit of Sharing buff, and do this at all four of your faction's listed capitals.

If there aren’t any people around, I tend to pass all the food to one chair, and sit at that one to make getting your Spirit of Sharing quest a little easier. If there are people around, your best bet is to just sit at each chair individually.







2.2 Now We’re Cookin’ & Pilgrim’s Progress



These achievements require you to have a cooking skill of at least 280 in your Old World Recipes section to cook ALL the recipes, but fear not! This holiday is generally used by people to level their alts’ cooking skills, because each recipe you’re given will have enough points to get you to the next one.



There will be some traveling required to purchase ingredients, but the quest chain will lead you to each subsequent city. For the non-daily quests, make sure you have the quest before you cook the items. The dailies don’t have the cooking as part of the quest completion, but the non-dailies do.

Your dailies were mentioned in the Bush Chicken section above. The non-daily quests will send you to each capital city, in the order of the recipes that will progress you through your cooking skill. For Horde, you’ll start off in the Ruins of Lordaeron (Phased), and for Alliance it’ll be outside the gates of Stormwind.

Once you’ve picked up your cooking skill, or if you already have it, you’ll need to at least learn the Spice Bread recipe from the cooking trainer. After that, find a Pilgrim’s Bounty vendor, generally located near the Pilgrim’s Bounty tables outside the capital cities, and purchase a Bountiful Cookbook for 1 silver. This cookbook will contain all the recipes you need for this holiday:

  • Spice Bread Stuffing – Cooking Skill 1
  • Pumpkin Pie – Cooking Skill 100
  • Cranberry Chutney – Cooking Skill 160
  • Candied Sweet Potatoes – Cooking Skill 220
  • Slow-Roasted Turkey – Cooking Skill 280




Part One



For Spice Bread Stuffing, you’ll need the Spice Bread recipe and Autumnal Herbs. The herbs can be purchased from the Pilgrim’s Bounty Vendor.



Once you’ve learned this recipe, be sure to pick up the Spice Bread Stuffing quest. For Horde, this will come from Miles Standish (Undercity, Phased), and for the Alliance it’ll be from Gregory Tabor (Stormwind).

Now that you have the quest and you’ve learned the Spice Bread Stuffing recipe, you’ll need to make at least 30 of these for the first day, (20 for the daily & 10 for two different non-daily quests).

If your cooking skill is at 1, make as many as it’ll take for you to learn your next recipe: Pumpkin Pie (Cooking 100).

Now you can turn in your Spice Bread Stuffing quest. For the Horde, you’ll turn it in to William Mullins, and for Alliance it’ll be Jasper Moore. These NPCs will give you your next quest: Pumpkin Pie.

But don’t go anywhere yet!

You’ll need to purchase your Ripe Tirisfal Pumpkins from your Undercity bountiful vendor, and Ripe Elwynn Pumpkins from your Stormwind vendor. Honey can be bought off any of the vendors, but you might as well buy that while you’re here, too. You need 1 Pumpkin & 1 Honey for each Pumpkin Pie.



If your cooking skill is already maxed, you’ll need 25 Pumpkin Pies for the day. (20 Daily & 5 Non-Daily)

If your cooking skill is at 100, you’ll need to get to at least 160 for the next quest. If this is the case, I’d recommend sitting at the Stormwind/Undercity area, and making Pumpkin Pie until you hit 160 after you’ve picked up the Pumpkin Pie quest.

NOTE for ALLIANCE PLAYERS: If you already have your Old World cooking skill at 280+, head out to Elwynn Forest and hunt 25 Wild Turkeys now. Cook them up with the Slow-roasted Turkey recipe. It’ll save you the extra trip to Ironforge at the end.

With that done, Horde will need to head to Orgrimmar, and Alliance will head to Ironforge.


Part Two



Once you get to the next city, you’ll turn in your Pumpkin Pie quest and pick up Cranberry Chutney. Horde’s turn in will be with Francis Eaton, and Alliance it will be Edward Winslow.

You also need to make sure you pick up and turn in your Don’t Forget the Stuffing! daily while in these cities. For Horde this will come from Ondani Greatmill, and for Alliance it will be Caitrin Ironkettle.

You can pick up your Can’t Get Enough Turkey quests from these NPCs, too, but we’re not quite to the turkey yet. The exception here is the Alliance players who have already hunted & cooked their turkeys to save a trip.

Once you’ve picked up your Cranberry Chutney quest, find the Pilgrim’s Bounty vendor and purchase your Tangy Southfury/Wetlands Cranberries. You need 1 Tangy Cranberry & 1 Honey for each Chutney.



If your cooking skill is already maxed, you’ll need 30 Cranberry Chutney for the day. (20 Daily & 10 Non-Daily for two quests)

If your cooking skill is at 160, you’ll need to get it to at least 220 for the next quest. So, as before, sit at the vendor and make as many Cranberry Chutney as it takes to get to 220 after you’ve picked up the Cranberry Chutney quest.

With that completed, Horde will be heading to Thunder Bluff, and Alliance will go back to Stormwind.


Part Three



Once you’re in the next capital city, turn in your Cranberry Chutney quest. This is where the next quest somewhat diverges for the factions.

Horde

You’ll turn in your quest to Dokin Farplain, and pick up the Candied Sweet Potatoes quest. You’ll need to purchase Mulgore Sweet Potatoes, Honey, & Autumnal Herbs from the Pilgrim’s Bounty Vendor there.



If your cooking skill is maxed, you’ll need to make 25 Candied Sweet Potatoes for the day. (20 Daily & 5 Non-Daily)

If your cooking skill is at 220, you’ll need to get to 280 for the next recipe. So, as before, sit at the vendor and make as many Candied Sweet Potatoes as it takes to get to 280 after you’ve picked up the Candied Sweet Potatoes quest.

Also, don’t forget to pick up and turn in your Easy as Pie daily from the NPC Mahara Goldwheat.

From here, you’ll head to Orgrimmar.

Alliance

You’ll turn in your quest to Edward Winslow, and pick up the They’re Ravenous in Darnassus quest. This will require 5 Spiced Bread Stuffing and 5 Pumpkin Pie. You should already have these in your bags from cooking earlier.

Don’t forget to pick up and turn in your We’re Out of Cranberry Chutney Again? Daily from the NPC Ellen Moore.

Now, head to Darnassus (Phased).


Part Four



Horde

You’ll be heading to Francis Eaton once again, and turning in your Candied Sweet Potatoes quest. You’ll then pick up your quest Undersupplied in the Undercity. This will require 5 Spiced Bread Stuffing and 5 Pumpkin Pie. You should already have these in your bags from earlier, so head over to the Undercity.

Alliance

Once in Darnassus, you’ll turn in your quest in to Isaac Allerton, and pick up Candied Sweet Potatoes. You’ll need to purchase Teldrassil Sweet Potatoes, Honey, & Autumnal Herbs from the Pilgrim’s Bounty Vendor there.

If your cooking skill is maxed, you’ll need to make 25 Candied Sweet Potatoes for the day. (20 Daily & 5 Non-Daily)

If your cooking skill is at 220, you’ll need to get to 280 for the next recipe. So, as before, sit at the vendor and make as many Candied Sweet Potatoes as it takes to get to 280 after you’ve picked up the Candied Sweet Potatoes quest.

While here, don’t forget to pick up and turn in your Easy as Pie daily from the NPC Mary Allerton.

Now head back to Stormwind, again.


Part Five



Horde

Once in Undercity, there are a few things you need to do:

  • Turn In: Undersupplied in the Undercity
  • Pick Up: Slow-roasted Turkey
  • Pick Up & Turn In: We’re Out of Cranberry Chutney Again? With NPC Roberta Carter
  • Pick Up & Turn In: She Says Potato with NPC William Mullins



And now, we hunt…Turkey.

Head out into Tirisfal Glades. If you look around, you’ll see some Wild Turkeys strutting about. You can try to combine your farm of these delicious fowl with the achievement The Turkinator, but I wouldn’t recommend doing that during peak play hours.



For the cooking, you’ll just need to kill and loot 25 for today, and 20 each day after for the dailies.

Once you have your 25, and your Slow-roasted Turkey quest, cook them up. Then, head back to Orgrimmar.

Alliance

Once in Stormwind, you’ll need to:

  • Turn In: Candied Sweet Potatoes
  • Pick Up: Slow-roasted Turkey
  • Pick Up & Turn In: She Says Potato with NPC Jasper Moore



And now, we hunt…Turkey.

Head out into Elwynn Forest. If you look around, you’ll see some Wild Turkeys strutting about. You can try to combine your farm of these delicious fowl with the achievement The Turkinator, but I wouldn’t recommend doing that during peak play hours.

For the cooking, you’ll just need to kill and loot 25 for today, and 20 each day after for the dailies.

Once you have your 25, and your Slow-roasted Turkey quest, cook them up. Then, head back to Darnassus.


At this point, both of the factions should have earned the Now We’re Cookin’ achievement—grats!


Part Six



Horde

You’ll be turning your final quest in to Francis Eaton. Then, head over to Ondani Greatmill to pick up & turn in the Can’t Get Enough Turkey daily.

For Horde characters, this completes your achievement Pilgrim’s Progress—congrats! You’re free to move on to the other achievements now.


Alliance

You still have some travelling to do. Your quest Slow-roasted Turkey will be turned in to Isaac Allerton in Darnassus.

Then, you’ll need to head back over to Ironforge to pick up and turn in the Can’t Get Enough Turkey daily if you haven’t already.

Now you’ve completed your achievement Pilgrim’s Promise—congrats! You’re free to move on to the other achievements now.



And then there were four…achievements left.


2.3 Terokkar Turkey Time



For this achievement, you need to have a Pilgrim’s Hat, and either a Pilgrim’s Dress, Robe, or Attire.

These items drop from the Pilgrim’s Bounty item received from completing Pilgrim’s Bounty cooking dailies.

Once you have these items, it’s just a matter of going to Sethekk Halls and killing Talon King Ikiss while wearing the above clothing. Remember, it needs to be the hat AND the chest piece.



For those who are well above Outland-level dungeons, head in on heroic mode and you’ll have a chance at the Raven Lord mount. This mount only drops on heroic mode from the boss Anzu.





2.4 Pilgrim’s Peril



Once you have a Pilgrim’s Dress, Robe, or Attire, you can head to the capital cities of your opposite faction enemies, and take a seat at their tables.

These items drop from the Pilgrim’s Bounty item received from completing Pilgrim’s Bounty cooking dailies.

For Horde:

  • Darnassus (Phased)
  • The Exodar
  • Ironforge
  • Stormwind






For Alliance:

  • Orgrimmar
  • Silvermoon City
  • Thunder Bluff
  • Undercity (Phased)






All the tables will be ‘outside’ the respective cities.

For Darnassus you have to go through the city to the clear area between the Warrior’s Terrace and the Tradesman’s Terrace.

For the Exodar, you’ll need to take the portal at Rut’theran Village from the western dock.

For Undercity, it’ll be in the Ruins of Lordaeron.



2.5 Turkey Lurkey



For this, you need to blast a rogue of each race, except Pandaren and Allied Races, with your Turkey Shooter.





These items drop from the Pilgrim’s Bounty item received from completing Pilgrim’s Bounty cooking dailies. You also have the chance to receive the Silver-Plated Turkey Shooter as a toy, which will not be consumed on use like the Turkey Shooter.

DO NOT shoot a rogue who is already a turkey – it won’t count.

DO NOT shoot a rogue who is in a ‘vehicle’ type mount – it won’t count.

This achievement is obviously easier in expansions where we share a main hub, like Dalaran or Shattrath, and somewhat more difficult during expansions where we’re separate. Your best bet will still be the shared capitals.



2.6 The Turkinator



This will probably be the most difficult achievement of the lot. Not because killing turkeys is difficult, but because killing the spaced apart turkeys while everyone else is killing spaced apart turkeys can cause a person to /head desk. There were more than a few occasions where I was thwarted at 38 or 39 killed.

Essentially, you need to kill 40 Wild Turkeys within 30 seconds of each other, and achieve Turkey Triumph. For Horde this will be in Tirisfal Glades, and for the Alliance it will be in Elwynn Forest.



If you look up the achievement on Wowhead, there are plenty of scripts in the comment section you can put in Macros of your Game Menu to help out with this. The one in particular I use is this:

/tar Wild Turkey
/script if (charm == nil) or (charm < 6) then charm=9; end; charm=charm-1; if (charm==6) then SetRaidTarget("target", 0) else SetRaidTarget("target", charm); end

If you have a favorite turkey murdering macro, feel free to post it in the comments!



And that’s everything! If you’ve made it to the end and managed to get all the achievements, you should now be a proud owner of a Plump Turkey and likely a Bush Chicken. Congratulations!


From all of us at Xu-Fu’s to all the pet battling denizens of Azeroth, we’re thankful for everyone who works to make this page the best source for pet battle strategies, and we wish you a Happy Pilgrim’s Bounty!

1 tdScript Addon Update



New patches and expansions breaking addons is as regular as the sunrise, and pet battle addons are no exception!

However, this also ushers in the chance for improvements and some of the addon creators in the community have done just that. We used to need two addons--tdPetBattleScripts & tdPetBattleScripts Rematch--to run tdscripts in Rematch. Now they've been combined into a single addon called Pet Battle Scripts!

Note: You must delete the old addons directly from your addon folder, and not through an addon manager. You can also reference Skull's comment here.

So a big thank you to Super and all those who collaborated on this to update the addon!

2 Pre-Patch Only Pet: Primal Stormling



Phase Two of the pre-patch is underway, and with it we get a new pet: the Primal Stormling!

While this pet is cageable, the quest it is a reward from will only be available during pre-patch, so if you don't want to have to purchase one at a later date on the AH you'll need to log in soon!

This pet requires multiple, short quests to unlock A Primal Threat from Khadgar:

1. The Dragon Isles Await
2. Aspectral Invitation
3a. The Dark Talons (Horde) / The Obsidian Warders (Alliance)
3b. Expeditionary Coordination
4. Whispers on the Winds
5. A Primal Threat

It doesn't matter which Primal Storm you go to for the ten motes for the quest A Primal Threat.




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

PET NEWS - BY DRAGONSAFTERDARK
2022-11-08 14:01:39
The timeline is once more in danger, and the Bronze Dragonflight has called upon the heroes of Azeroth to venture into the swirling mists of Pandaria. Perhaps we'll also find a few pets hiding amidst the timeways?

This week's timewalking vendor offers two pets: the Paradox Spirit & the Infinite Hatchling, and they both cost 2200 Timewarped Badges from the vendor Mistweaver Xia on the Timeless Isle.







However, there's also an Achievement reward pet from Stormstout Brewery: the Hopling.





It's a reward from Ling-Ting's Herbal Journey





Here's a link to the comments on Wowhead for the achievement. It also offers a workaround for the one that might be bugged beneath the stairs. For that one it'd be best to wait until the instance is clear. Or, since you'll be heading out to the Timeless Isle anyway, drop by the Valley of the Four Winds on your max-level character for an easy clear, and easy pet!


Happy collecting!

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

Aranesh

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

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 ;)

Manually clicking ability buttons!? The madness.

TD script is in the works, that much I know for a fact. The others I'm sure will follow soon :)

UPDATE: Super has just confirmed it is now available on Curseforge.

Hrmph, this Younger Generation who find it too much work to click different buttons... Arrr, when I was young, we had to click ALL our buttons while trudging in the snow all the way around Pandaria , and it was uphill both ways! (Shakes stick and yells at clouds.) (edited)

No more button clicking!

Was tdBattlePetScript Rematch updated? Mine still says out of date and curse says it was last updated Dec 14 2018.

Gráinne

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.

Mot

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.

Mutanis

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.

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)

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

Summary:

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 ;-)

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 ...

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.

Gráinne

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.

Rysana

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.

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.

Not sure what's going on, but 11/28 does not seem to be squirt day in the US as you note. Oddly I think I've seen that calendar item shift between 11/28 and 11/30 at different times in the past few weeks. idk - but it's not squirt day today, after 10am reset

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 ...

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?

Viruzzz

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.

Just copy the preference files of the add-ons.

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 2020-06-26 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.

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.

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.)

Aranesh

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

Hey!

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)

Aranesh

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

Hey!
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.

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.

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.

Ehm, here I am again, complaining … ;-)

It would be nice if we wouldn’t have the limit of 990 chars in the Info box of a strat.
I’ve only posted 3 strats so far, but already run into that space problem. See my EnvBert strat with Squashling (https://www.wow-petguide.com/index.php?Strategy=4315).

In that Info box I only could squeeze-in the content by shortening many things, down to the gramatical limits, and by omitting some info. I know, I could continue in a comment in the comment section, but this doesn’t feel right. The essential infos should be in one place.

I’m also aware that 990 chars should be more than sufficient in most cases. But there are cases where more info is useful (like the above example), and unless there is a technical 990-characters-hard-limit, please give us more room. If someone really is misusing that box (what for?) you could always edit the post or/and contact the author.

Thanks for considering.


Lazey

wrote on 2019-01-12 03:18:35

I think we had a much stricter limit 2 weeks ago and I personally don't think this infobox needs more characters because it's there for SHORT creator comments to strategy basics or pet choices and IMHO not to explain every single RNG situation players can experience.

If you can reduce RNG with breed restrictions... then maybe it's better to add them to the pets and not explain what can go wrong with other breeds. Also, I don't see the need to comment on the level pets because that is something that belongs to your pet team (or Rematch strings if you like to add your specific ones).

Most people come here not to read walls of text, they look for the better-rated strategies that match their pet collections, copy&paste stuff they need to import into their addons and only come back if something goes horribly wrong and then mostly to find help in other peoples' comments who also struggled or to find a different team/strategy: I don't think many people wanna read about stuff that already happened to them, they mostly want to see solutions and it's the best way to have them in a well-optimized strategy&team already.

Be honest, does it help when I struggle with this specific strategy and then come back and find something like "if this is happening you are screwed" or "if this is happening and you want pet XP restart, otherwise you win without rewards for your level pet" in your creator comments? I don't think so.

This is not a basic forum so maybe it's better to continue with keeping things short ;-)

Remte

wrote on 2019-01-14 05:12:15

To me, certain character limits tend to be problematic not because of the length of actual content, but because of formatting tags and embedding taking up a lot of characters. This is something I experience on most of websites, not just this one, but the most aggravating issue over here is linking to user profiiles and other sources of strategies, which could be alleviated with internalisation of link paths and @mentions.

About the tooltips themselves… I don't have any clear conclusions one way or the other. Put an effort into it? It's ignored. Leave it alone to keep it tidy? You come out as oblivious and heartless.
Same goes for strategies, a new one? Ignored on behalf of ones that took the spotlight first. And when it's actually noticed? It seems to outweigh another with 300+ flawless executions which somehow stays in the shadow. Therefore, I'm not sure one can account for every visitor upon creating the environment. :-)
The cycle of (tamer) strife can be cruel, and I believe something needs to be done with it nevertheless – but sadly, enough of the philosophy, for at the moment the engineering of more basic aspects has to come first!

@Lazey, Part I (Sorry, the page freaks out when I’m trying to post my reply as one. So, I’ll try it in two steps ;)

First and foremost, thanks for your reply and for your opinion. But I don’t agree with all of your points…‌

> I personally don't think this infobox needs more characters because it's there for SHORT creator comments to strategy basics or pet choices and IMHO not to explain every single RNG situation players can experience.

IMO the part that really should be kept short and precise is the description (the steps). The Info box, I agree with you, should also be short, but if there is a need for more information, it should be dumped into the Info box. (Not into the description, not into the comments section, for two different reasons, but I think both are obvious.)

Another possibilty would be to squeeze any meta info into the description before “Turn 1”. But this would be a cheap second Info box, and I don’t like the idea to abuse the form that way.

> If you can reduce RNG with breed restrictions... then maybe it's better to add them to the pets and not explain what can go wrong with other breeds.

I think you are referring to the Env Bert strat I have linked. Basically I agree. But you might have noticed that I already had added min power to pet #2, in order to exclude some of the substitutes. Though, I didn’t wan’t to do the same with the Blazehaound (pet #1), because I think the strat is doable also with a suboptimal breed. But maybe you are right and I should just exclude any non-P/P breeds.

@Lazey, Part II

> Also, I don't see the need to comment on the level pets because that is something that belongs to your pet team (or Rematch strings if you like to add your specific ones).

You are right here. The Rematch string is part of the Info box, and as such it should be parsed correctly. (The string that contains the correct and breed/damage-specific min health requirements). This should be enough, but, I think there are also folks that aren’t using Rematch. They also should know of the type-specific min health requirements. Unfortunatly the default forms of the page don’t offer any detailed entries for the min health. They only offer one entry (for all damage types), and I always put the worst-case min health there (for pets that are weak against the expected damage type)

> Most people come here not to read walls of text, […]

Well, I think, a “wall of of text” is not defined by the amount of characters. To create a wall of text you need two things: lots of characters, and lots of missing line breaks / paragraphs. I’m completely aware of that, and I’m always trying to section and format my texts in a manner that makes it usable for readers ;) I think the limit of 990 chars is not contributing to avoid walls of text. (It’s easy to build a a wall of text with only 500 chars, but I think you got what I mean…)

> Be honest, does it help when I struggle with this specific strategy and then come back and find something like "if this is happening you are screwed" or "if this is happening and you want pet XP restart, otherwise you win without rewards for your level pet" in your creator comments? I don't think so.

Good question. Me personally, when I use a new strat from somebody else, I always read thru the strat, and in the case I really need to level some pet, I then (likely) exclude strats that are mentioning things like “RNG”, “risk”, etc. But: I’m always happy (when using a new strat) when I see some detailed infos, so that I can estimate what is going to happen. But YMMV.

I am a simple pet battler looking to up my rotation.
Currently I just do the garrison daily and the gnomeregan daily. As well as the pet battles from the two islands. What is the next step for me in pet battling?

Welcome to battling :)

A lot depends on your roster - what pets you currently have, at what levels, and what breeds. More pets, fully levelled and made Blue, of the right breeds, makes everything easier. Since you haven't linked to a WoW character here, I can't see that, and it's hard to make specific suggestions.

I wrote a forum post here suggesting a development path for a battler. You'll have to decide what stage you're at:
https://eu.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/17623632232#post-3

The general directions of development people pursue are:

1. Collecting. Some people collect pets with not a lot of regard for their battling capabilities. However, since some pets are achieved only by battling, for example Wicker Wraith and Stunted Direhorn, even collectors need to pay some attantion to battling.

2. Achieving. There are many pet battling achievements in game, and following the natural trail through the Taming [Continent] achievements up to Pandaria, and then on to the Spirit Tamers, Beasts of Fable and the Celestial Tournament was an epic journey for me and for many others. It's well worth doing. The Celestial Tournament is still, IMO, the pinnacle of PvE pet battling. However, WoD and Legion and BfA have added more battling achievements.

3. Roster development. Distinct from collecting, this is finding the right pets for your toolbox in the right breeds and levelling and if necessary making them Rare with stones, so that you have the right specialist pet for any possible challenge.

4. PvP. Only a small minority of pet battlers spend a lot of time in PvP, but those who do really enjoy it.

Apart from Xu-Fu's here, you can read and join resources like the official Blizzard forums for pet battles, WarcraftPets.com website, or the WarcraftPets Discord, where like-minded addic.... er, battlers ... and more than delighted to answer any questions you might have.

Please ask again if you have any more specific questions!

+1 for the Celestial Tourney comment alone.

Only really to expand on Gráinne's comment as regards the 'collecting' and 'roster development' sections - which are, as said 'distinct' although they are intrinsically linked - I would like to point you in the direction of the in-game Achievements > Battle Pets > Collect tab. There are a series of achievements called Raiding With Leashes, pretty much all of which can be completed via the auction house - if you have the gold/inclination - or by completing old raids.
In this content-starved expansion (and it is, it's making people want to do pet battling, isn't it? XD), it's been some small relief to run (short) old content knowing there's a possibility of a worthwhile reward beyond the vague chance of some 75kG pants dropping.

Thanks so much for the replies. I think I am somewhat of a collector/roster builder. I go around doing the dailies but I also like buying pets just for their looks. I watched hazelnutty on youtube last night. I think I will focus on doing the expeditions when I have time to get all the pets that come from that. Then I will go back and do old raids like Eekwibble suggested.

Yes. As the message says, this is a known issue and due to increased load. It is being looked at, and has been explained in the Discord, but won't go away in the very short term.

Please allow us to post code (or literal strings) as it should be. Would have been useful in my last example. Just to say it.

BTW: I tried to add the line above to my last post, and it was refused. As a new comment, obviously, it works. Something on this site is very fishy. Don’t get me wrong, your site is performing better than 85% of the whole internet, but there are still errors. And some of them are … a bit annoying.

Hey Mot!

That's because the page is a hobby project by one person who is not a professional web developer or programmer at all. Many of the quirks won't be worked on as long as there are bigger topics open. You can read through the list of tasks and bugs in the devnotes:
https://www.wow-petguide.com/index.php?m=DevLog

Regarding the versions, I don't really want to do that right now. There's already a mention of the last update time (use the downwards arrow on a strategy below the pets to open additional details)

Also, if you'd like to chat with us directly, feel free to join our Discord: https://discord.gg/z4dxYUq

Thanks for your feedback!

OK, sorry for my complaints then. Regarding the really good overall design of the site, I indeed thought that there were professional web developers envolved, and the little glitches were oversights.

Sorry again. I’ll shut up now ;-)
And thanks for the site!

Hey no worries :-) Hope I didn't come across as unappreciative. Feedback is good! And that you had this impression is actually a compliment, thank you very much! No need to keep silent about issues when there are issues, I just tried to explain how they came to be and why it takes so long to get stuff fixed.
Very recently an actual, professional developer has joined me and is helping out a ton, so things might become a lot better soon!

There seems to be a parsing error in the site’s script:

Input via posting form:

`Immolate / [ spell=Flame Jet] until won or your pet dies. In the latter case clean up with your starting pets, which should be at pretty good health.`

Output (as displayed):

Immolate / [ spell=Flame Jet] until won or your pet dies. In the latter case clean up with your starting pets, which should be at pretty good health.

As you see the second spell is not interpreted (displayed) properly. It is displayed in its tag form (source form) instead.
