Last updated 2021-02-21

As is tradition at this point, a selection of pet battling world quests in Shadowlands are required for the achievement Family Exorcist.

You will need to defeat at least 9 of the 11 tamers repeatedly, each time with pets from only one family. The reward for doing so is the cute Spriggan Trickster
Xu-Fu can scan this section for the most suitable strategies according to your preferences and show the required pets.
Pick a family below to check which pets you need.

I just made a macro for family exorcist and hotkeyed it. Couple of clicks to get info you need but didn't need an extra addon

As noted Family Familar also covers this. If you use ATT (all the things!) then this too has tracking not only for the pet battle achievments but missing pets in zone etc.

Guys, i read somewhere that there's an option to have multiple teams for one target? could someone explain to me how to do that cause that would help with the achievement.

Thx

Alex

Just an FYI that you don't have to beat all 11 trainers per family for the achievement. Like in BFA you can skip a couple that have heavy RNG and are punishing to certain families.

It is confirmed multiple times that the Pet Battles are repeatable after the WQ has gone away. A good way to get your achievement faster ^_^ (edited)

I think he was talking about potentially mass exporting scripts, as well. You have to enter them all manually as far as I am aware.

Rotgut and Maximillian are ridiculous on this set of family achieves. They are truly OP. This would be a massive turn off to the average pet battler which sucks because Blizz need to be encouraging people to pet battle, not making it distastefully hard.

Something weird that I haven't seen before but I am sure it is part of rematch maybe?

I imported the entire team list, it said importing 102 teams when I copied the string into rematch. However, it is ONLY showing the mechanical teams in the tab. What am I missing?

I have a suspicion what might cause this bug. But I'd need to know which strategy exactly it's breaking at. Could you please send me the entire rematch string with the 102 strategies you're using? Per email please ^^ [email protected]

Thank you!

There's a Rematch option to override Teams for the same Trainer instead of adding new ones. Maybe check your import?

After more testing it's pretty clear this problem is within Rematch. If this happens to you, try deleting the 11 imported ones, then import the full 110 again. For some people it worked on the second try.
Also make sure the tickbox to override Teams is not on. Rematch can only match 1 team to 1 tamer. If you tell it to override, it will just create 11 (one for each tamer), then for the other families that come after write over the existing ones, ending with Mechanic because they are last in the list.

With the tickbox off, copies will be created but only the first (Humanoid) will be linked to the Tamer.

Yes. On Beta they can, and I believe that is continuing into Shadowlands proper.

I really love that you can fight them multiple times so I can't finish my achievement earlier.

On my end, it's failing to detect my level 25 rare Tiny Direhorn, Scrapyard Tunnler, Sneaky Marmot, Parasitic Boarfly, Oasis Void-Duster, Rabbit, Elfin Rabbit, Chitterspine Deepstalker, Chitterspine Skitterling, Inland Croaker and Bilescourge.

Those sound suspiciously like the set of strats that use two of a species. See Butters' comment belos.

Great tool, but there is some bug where it doesn't register some of my pets, and claim I don't have them. Not just unlevelled or wrong breed, but not at all.

I'm sure Aranesh will want to look into that.

What would halp is you specifying EXACTLY what species you believe the table omitted that you have.

Keep in mind that in many cases, especially for Exorcist, breed must match. For example, you might have a H/P Nether Faerie Dragon, but if the strategy needs an S/S breed, your H/P cannot fill that slot.

Also remember that the scan will not cover substitutes, so even if you have an S/S Sprite Darter Hatchling that could substitute for the S/S Nether Faerie Dragon, that will not show in the table either.

In a few cases, strategies require more than one of a pet. For example, one strat requires three Sneaky Marmots. If you have only one Sneaky Marmot, the table will show that you are missing two of them, because .... well, you are!

When you see a strat showing that you have a pet missing, right-click on the battle name, and check the detail of the requirements themselves.

When you have made a list of the species you believe the table has made a mistake on, do post it here, to help get to the bottom of the query. (edited)

I had a similar sort of confusion, when I looked closer it was just that some fights required two of the same pet, and I owned just 1 of that pet. The table doesn't really identify when multiple of a pet is needed for the same fight. (e.g. The Mind Games of Addius (Dragonkin),
Airborne Defense Force (Elemental))

Just went through the list, and it seems all the cases are simply because I don't have enough. I didn't spot that last time, because it said it was needed in 1 fight, and I didn't think about the possibilities of needing the same pet more than once per battle. :D

So disregard my post above, but maybe add a feature that highlights that you need X amount of a pet, and you only have Y amount, to help prevent others from making the same mistake as me. :D

Late reply sorry. What you describe usually only happens if the same pet is required multiple times in the same strategy, yes. There's a couple things that can help, although it's a bit more manual process:

- Consider substitutes. The table here does not take them into account (for good reasons) but if a strategy asks for 3x the same snail, check the strategy, check if you can use other snails, for example :-)
- Use favourites. There might be a different alternative that you can use instead of the one shown here initially. Check the tamer and if there's one that's better suited for you, give it a heart. The table here will then always pick that strategy over any others.

Hope that helps :-)
