Is anyone else tired of the family batter series of achievements?

Not really, no.

I'm definitely not! Trying to figure them out by myself is the only fun I have left in battling.

NO, especially since most teams are here. It's more points plus u get a pet. There are days (more than less lately) I don't want to go thru the hassle of drama in the *current* areas. I can just float around and do pet battles and old raids/dungeons to finish my collections..The family battler is cathartic in some sick way lol. I know it's easier if u have a massive collection. I skipped Argus because I was missing so many pets. When I got them I went back, circled through, and got the achievement. I've been working on pvp forever and the *five without healing* achievement.

@Nessahelyan, according to recent reports, including someone this week in the Discord, the No Time To Heal count doesn't reset if you flee before any of your pets dies. So try that, in combination with some especially obnoxious team. :D

oooooooh. I found out last week that u know the coins u got in legion and diff mounts in the boxes after u were exalted? Well I'm missing 2 and i don't want to do that content. BUT. I had a brainstorm. During Legion timewalking i can buy rep boxes for the area i need on all my toons and send them to the one. I got one box last time but i got 3 of the coins in it( there's some mount that takes them , not sure but its there) 2-fer grind

So what is the point of this mass import if you're going to suggest different comps than the ones that are the most popular/fastest/successful and then I have to go to the specific fights anyway?

Jeeze enough with the snark. Simply change the team , put the new script in and save (override)

is anyone managing a mass export with scripts ? only getting the teams atm


wrote on 2023-07-09 05:21:27

Unless something changed, you still have to manually import the scripts. The "With scripts" box simply means that it will choose strategies that have a script written for them.

The Mass Export doesn't seem to work properly. I think all the teams for the same boss are named the same. I only get one team per boss in the Import. And when I go to the individual boss page, the teams get overwritten when I try to Export a second one after importing one.

When you import, make sure you don't have "overwrite existing teams" checked. You want "create new copies" checked. Good luck!


wrote on 2023-05-14 17:41:46

I don't see an option to check for "overwrite existing teams'. Can you please advise where I can find it?


wrote on 2023-05-16 00:20:44

When you paste the teams in, you get options for which tab to put them in etc. The option for overwritting/copies is at the bottom.

I can't see any pets in this zone other than the daily pet, on the zone map or the local circle. Anyone have this problem and know how to resolve it? I've updated all of the pet mods as of 5/7.

make sure you have pet finding/tracking turned on in the dropdown menu near your minimap.

Mine was also bugged when i completed it but I raised a ticket and responded to the canned email saying I had tried all that. Got my Gerald via in game mail this morning.


wrote on 2023-05-04 13:32:45

it's currently bugged, i finished all fights, but it didn't give me the pet


wrote on 2023-05-05 10:47:55

Same, submitted a ticket, got the "please try this stuff first" canned response and just reopened it letting them know I can't "try this again without addons". I know they have to be swamped but I'm only two pets away from "What Can I Say, They Love Me" and was counting on this puppy for that. However, I'm good with waiting, they're busy right now and it's not stopping me from playing, just disappointing.
