Family Familiar
The achievement Family Familiar is the largest and toughest addition to the pet battling world in a long time. It might even beat the Celestial Tournament in required effort!
To complete it you need to earn 10 individual achievements, each asking you to defeat 12 tamers in the Broken Isles with only pets from one specific pet family.

But how hard can it be? Well, you're in for quite a ride. Every day there is only three active pet quests out of a total of 37 different ones.
So first off, one of the tamers in question has to be active.
Then you need to beat him or her with a certain pet family only, but you cannot repeat the fight with the same character!.
This means you will have to wait for every tamer to be up 10 times! And on top of it all, some of the tamers are extremely hard - if not impossible - to beat with certain families. Looking at you there, Flummox!

Unless you go at it with multiple characters, it will most likely take several months before you can finish this particular achievement.
But once you do, you will get your very own tiny, corrupted, adorable Nightmare Treant :-)

As usual, below table will list all pets required to use the main strategies listed here. Due to the nature of the achievement, the list is quite long this time.
Best sort by family to get a better overview over each families difficulty level.

Something I didn't see in the notes or comments. If the world quest is up you can actually battle them as many times as you want. Meaning you could knock out all of the family's in one shot for that quest.

It seems that Durian Strongfruit is not repeatable however.

Durian is repeatable by different characters though, each time that Durian is up I ran any character that I had above 110 out there and battled him, so I could get all of the families done.

I read in another comment section that Family Familiar should have an export all option if you click the "red skull". I'm probably being ridiculously dense but for the life of me, I can't find the red skull lol

Hey! That's my bad. I upgraded the rematch strings to be better (including steps now!) and the export-all button broke due to that. So I had to remove it.... it'll come back though, eventually. No idea when though, sorry!

Having alts who also have world quests open can make these achievements go much faster. Especially if there's more than one trainer up that week. While the achievements and such are account wide, the world quests are not.

Can you please update this guide to NOT use Minfernal? It is simply unreasonable to expect someone to have this pet, unless you have been extremely lucky. I have spent months at the location, logging in from time to time, and all I see are other players mindlessly flying around. And I have a LOW population server group, so I can't imagine the high population servers.

Thanks! :) Minfernal is only used against Flummox. You can easily do this achievement without that particular fight.
