Worked perfect with SL pre-patch.

Thank you for your comment this did the trick - I used PP Giant Sewer Rat (breed doesn't really matter in the first slot), PP Gleamhoof Fawn and HP Shimmershell Snail
Does not seem to work in 9.0.1 prepatch, Summit Kit does not do enough damage due to stampede nerf, and gets killed by Marshmallow. Also, Rocket's abilities may deal a lot of damage to your pets due to bad RNG.

Worked in SL pre-patch, but Feline Familiar didn't manage to kill Ticker, so a third pet was need to finish him off (Ticker was at ~50% HP)

Wins 21 to 5 losses so far.
Just did it in SL pre-patch and worked very good for me, I did need Hatchling for the last hit on Ticker, but Magma Rageling was still alive too

It’s that time of year again! Pumpkins are glowing, fingers are sticky from candy, and the Headless Horseman is setting everything on fire. Hallow’s End went live today, and with it comes the opportunity for all those wonderful holiday pets. Though we haven’t gotten any new ones to add to our roster this year, this is the perfect opportunity to farm for the ones you might be missing, or perhaps to sell on the auction house.

Hallow’s End boasts a whopping 9 pets that come from a variety of sources. Below, we’ll give you some pictures and details on how to complete your spooky menagerie.


  • Creepy Crate




Cageable: No

Breed: H/H

This pet is obtainable only through an 8-part quest chain.

Horde players will need to speak with Zidormi to revert Tirisfal Glades to before the Battle for Lordaeron. Then, head over to the Ruins of Lordaeron above Undercity and speak with Candace Fenlow. She’s in a tent, tending to her cauldron to the right of the Orphan Matron.

Alliance players need only stroll out to the front gates of Stormwind to find Gretchen Fenlow, who is also tending a cauldron.

The starting quest for both factions will be called: A Friend in Need


  • Cursed Birman




Cageable: Yes

Breed: P/S

This pet can be bought with 150 Tricky Treats from the pet vendors: Woim & Pippi.

Woim can be found in the Ruins of Lordaeron for Horde players, and Pippi can be found outside the gates of Stormwind for Alliance players.


  • Feline Familiar




Cageable: Yes

Breed: P/B

This pet can be bought with 150 Tricky Treats from the pet vendors: Woim & Pippi.

Woim can be found in the Ruins of Lordaeron for Horde players, and Pippi can be found outside the gates of Stormwind for Alliance players.

**The Feline Familiar is a pet that counts toward your Crazy for Cats Achievement!**


  • Ghastly Rat




Cageable: No

Breeds: H/S, P/B, S/B, H/B

For this pet, you’ll need to head out to your garrisons in Lunarfall (Alliance) or Frostwall (Horde). You’ll also need to be at least level 40 and have a level 3 garrison. Once there, you’ll find a goblin vendor named Izzy Hollyfizzle who sells a wide variety of items.

However, to cage this pet you’ll need to purchase the item Creepy Crawlers for 5 Spooky Supplies. Spooky Supplies are obtained by completing daily quests offered by the orc Orukan, who can be found next to Izzy Hollyfizzle.

Once you get your five Spooky Supplies, purchase the Creepy Crawlers from Izzy and use the item. It will be consumed on use, and after that you should see pets have now spawned in your garrison for catching!

Another way to do this is to find someone who already has the decorations in their garrison, and see if they’ll let you pop in for a visit and some pet battling!


  • Ghost Maggot




Cageable: No

Breeds: B/B, S/S, P/S, P/B

For this pet, you’ll need to head out to your garrisons in Lunarfall (Alliance) or Frostwall (Horde). You’ll also need to be at least level 40 and have a level 3 garrison. Once there, you’ll find a goblin vendor named Izzy Hollyfizzle who sells a wide variety of items.

However, to cage this pet you’ll need to purchase the item Creepy Crawlers for 5 Spooky Supplies. Spooky Supplies are obtained by completing daily quests offered by the orc Orukan, who can be found next to Izzy Hollyfizzle.

  • Naxxy




Cageable: Yes

Breed: H/H

This pet can be bought with 150 Tricky Treats from the pet vendors: Woim & Pippi.

Woim can be found in the Ruins of Lordaeron for Horde players, and Pippi can be found outside the gates of Stormwind for Alliance players.


  • Sinister Squashling




Cageable: Yes

Breed: P/B

This pet actually has three sources you can obtain it from:

-- The Loot-Filled Pumpkin that spawns for 45-50 level players after the defeat of the Headless Horseman

-- Handful of Treats obtained from Candy Buckets around the world

-- It can also be bought with 150 Tricky Treats from the pet vendors: Woim & Pippi.

Woim can be found in the Ruins of Lordaeron for Horde players, and Pippi can be found outside the gates of Stormwind for Alliance players.


  • Spectral Spinner




Cageable: No

Breeds: S/S, P/S, H/S, P/B, S/B

For this pet, you’ll need to head out to your garrisons in Lunarfall (Alliance) or Frostwall (Horde). You’ll also need to be at least level 40 and have a level 3 garrison. Once there, you’ll find a goblin vendor named Izzy Hollyfizzle who sells a wide variety of items.

  • Widget the Departed




Cageable: Yes

Breed: S/S

This pet can be bought with 150 Tricky Treats from the pet vendors: Woim & Pippi.

Woim can be found in the Ruins of Lordaeron for Horde players, and Pippi can be found outside the gates of Stormwind for Alliance players.



And that’s it – you’ve gotten all your holiday pets! Congratulations!

We at Xu-Fu’s wish you all the best in your battle pet endeavors, and we hope you have a happy Hallow’s End!

The Prepatch is here! And it brought some substantial changes to WoW Pet Battling. Oof size: Large

A very brief overview of the changes:

  • Black Claw and similar abilities changed in the way they work
  • Flock and similar abilities appliying Shattered Defenses have been significantly nerfed
  • Many healing abilities have been changed to heal flat amounts instead of a variance
  • Many, many, abilities have been slightly changed
  • Many tamer fights have been changed as well to work better with the above changes


You can read much more about all the changes in our full compendium of Shadowlands changes.

These changes affect almost every single strategy hosted on Xu-Fu's and that's why we did some drastic changes:

1. Two new tags: Caution (SL) and Broken (SL)


Pre-Shadowlands strategies will have the tag Caution (SL), also marked prominently on top of the strategy. This tag only shows that the strategy might not work anymore and has not been tested, yet.
If we find one that the strategy is actually broken thanks to Shadowlands, we will add the tag Broken (SL) and unpublish it.
If you are the owner of such a strategy, you can modify the tags yourself and republish.

=> Please be truthful and don't remove the tag without testing your strategy first!

2. Reset of all favourites and ratings


Very large Oof. Over the last 2 years, strategies have been tested, rated and favourited by many of you and they gave the page a lot of additional value. With the above changes, much of those will have lost their value entirely because many strategies simply won't work the same anymore. We discussed this internally and decided that it would be misleading to keep these ratings around and the only sensible step going forward is a full reset.

=> This will be very disruptive for casual visitors and pet battlers and we sincerely apologise for that!

Yet, we found it to be the better alternative than having strategies that don't work anymore high up in the priorities for a long time.
Thank you for your understanding!

Just after the server move the donation goal over at Ko-Fi was reached and I've just made the payment to my chosen charity: www.panthera.org

After looking at more than 2 dozen charities around tigers and wild cats, Panthera seemed the most fitting and trustworthy. They are fully dedicated to big cats and their entire focus is on their conservation. Their efforts are widespread, from supporting shelters to fighting poachers all the way to influencing legislation in countries where endangered big cats are at home.

Here's the donation confirmation :-)

2020-09-28 17:15:13
Edit on September 29th

Because of a very unfortunate mistake on my end (timezones are difficult sometimes -.-) the server move happened a day early. My apologies for that.
On top of that, it caused a lot of issues, some small some large. Large meaning something like: not possible to login through Battle.net, error when writing comments, not possible to browse strategies. Issues with which it would be impossible to browse the page. I kept it offline for that reason.

In the meanwhile, I went through the biggest issues and repaired them, going through every function of the page as detailed as possible. There are still numerous smaller issues around, for example sending password reset emails is still broken. I will fix all of those as well asap but I won't keep the page hidden any longer.
If you encounter any errors, please let me know!





In the last few days, the page has been running a bit unstable. It's a combination of more complexity - user accounts, collections, pet comparisons etc. - and more people browsing the page. And the odd little coding mistake but let's not talk about that :)
To help with that, I've requested the entire hosting account Xu-Fu is running on to be moved to a new server with better hardware and settings that give us more computing power.

  • This is going to happen in the night from September 29th to September 30th at around 02:00 UTC


The process should be automatic and seamless but there are lot of smaller things changing that might need manual updating.
I can't guarantee a smooth transition and the page might be down for a few hours. Fingers crossed! :D

It's time to tap some kegs and bust some heads, because it's Brewfest on Azeroth!

This in-game event lasts just over two weeks, and offers many things for just about any kind of collector: mounts, transmogs, toys, and last but not least pets!

Brewfest offers three pets, all of which can be purchased from a vendor. For Alliance, you'll need to head outside Ironforge to find Belbi Quikswitch, and for Horde it will be outside Orgrimmar with Blix Fixwidget.

The currency you'll need for the pets is Brewfest Prize Tokens, and you'll get this by completing various dailies and quests in the Brewfest areas, as well as the daily holiday dungeon.

For all three pets you'll need a total of 500 tokens. Or, since they're cageable, you can head to your nearest Auction House and purchase them there!


1. Pets



1.1 Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm -- 100 Brewfest Prize Tokens





1.2 Stout Alemental -- 200 Brewfest Prize Tokens





1.3 Wolpertinger -- 200 Brewfest Prize Tokens & Quest: Catch the Wild Wolpertinger!



This pet is available from the vendor, as well as a quest called Catch the Wild Wolpertinger!

The Horde can receive this quest from Goldrak Huntsniper.

The Alliance can receive this quest from Goldark Snipehunter

**NOTE** Catch the Wild Wolpertinger! is NOT available for EU players.





And that's all of them!

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

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?

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.

The new ad banners on this site are breaking the formatting badly - can barely read the page because all of the content is overlayed on itself.

Hey! Sorry for the trouble, it's a bug. It was never intended to show these ads.
They controlled by a company and I told them that I dont want these takeover ads. I already informed them and they promised to fix it asap.

Can someone recommend an AddOn to track the enemy team's abilities and cooldowns?
I've been using PetTracker up until this point, but sadly it's been broken for a long time.
I looked everywhere and can't seem to find anything which does the same. It's really weird that such a basic thing is not in the game by default.

There is a discrepancy between the Squirt dates on the front page and the powerleveling guide page; the latter shows the Squirt date occurring one day later than the front page Squirt date. Can you please clarify and correct this so we can update our calendars?

Seems like the dates are one day early each time for the "Next Squirt Day" on homepage, it's one day off from the guide, not sure why, and has been one day early for the last one and the one starting tomorrow for some reason.

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)

Hey!

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:

https://trello.com/c/aDc8S9Zt/64-pet-xp-calculation-in-strategies-is-incorrect

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

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.

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 ;-)

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
