[MoP] Pet Battles


Yorktown, VA
I've played a handful of pets to level 6/7 and just reached 10 with my favorite trio last night. This's hardly a huge amount of experience with the system, but so far it's been a lot of fun.

It's great to finally feel like you have SOMETHING to do with the mountain of pets you've collected over the last several years. If it's not you thing, no problem - don't play.

Note about addons. Haven t used any yet but looking at them. Has anyone tried them? Do anyone have their own suggestions?

Pet Battles

Pokemon Trainer: The Pet Battle Mod
Adds informations to the tooltip when hovering a Wild Pet. This informations contain a short info whether your setup is effective against that pet or not. And during a battle, Pokemon Trainer shows the possible abilities of your enemy. It also adds a short info whether the enemy pets are effective against your pets or not.

PetJournal Enhanced
Adds several additional filtering options to the Pet Journal. Also shows each pet's specialization as an icon showing their highest stat, allowing you to know at a glance if your pet is tanky, speedy, or powerful. Plus, the addon shows each pet's rarity (in its border and the pet card) for non-wild pets.

Pet Battle Quality Glow
When a Pet Battle starts, this will Print in the Chat frame the enemy's Pet Names and Quality. It also adds a colored box around the battle pet's portrait indicating its quality. Requires MoP to work.

Well, seems like Blizzard did a decent job as no one hates it. I'm finding it a lot more fun than I thought I would.

Though it is making my questing a tad longer then need be. Reason is because I stop and battle the wild critters when ever I can. Trying to increase the level of my pets. But still fun.
I had 1 player challenge me. I had a lev 1 pet out on display. I guess he thought his lev 2 and 3s would win the day. He was surprised when He saw my pets [at the time] were 5s and 6s].
Needless to say, he lost. He wanted a rematch and kept bugging me. I logged out, as I felt 1 victory was enough, and he may have had higher pets.
Is a person a failure for doing nothing? Or is he a failure for trying, and not succeeding at what he is attempting to do? What did you fail at today?.

An interesting tidbit I found out last night. You can cage some of your pets and trade/mail away to anyone you want.

If you have lots of dupes of the same pet you can also "release" them to tidy up your long list a bit.

Plus you can set pets as favorites and rename pets to whatever you want.

I'll have to name an ape "Jorge of the Jungle" or something like that....

A lot of people I know in-game are pretty excited about the Pet Battles and that's why I think it is a good idea to have a look at the addons that have been created for it.

Battle Pet Count
This is a very simple addon that will help tell you if you already own a pet and if you do, what the quality of the owned pet is. It's pretty useful since no one actually wants to catch pets that they already own especially if they are of the same quality or worse.
All the info about pets can be found in the tooltips whenever you hover your cursor over a cage, pet battle, or npc.

You can get the addon from:
Curse: »www.curse.com/addons/wow/battlepetcount
Wowinterface: »www.wowinterface.com/downloads/i···unt.html

For those using Ackis Recipe List, this is going to look extremely similar, but instead of finding the missing recipes this will help you finding the missing pets to complete your Pet Journal (You have to catch them all, right?)

This addon will add a Scan button to your Pet Journal. That button will open another window that will list all the pets you are missing. Clicking a pet on that list will tell you where/how you can get that pet. Aside from this, you can filter the pets so you can make it look however you see fit.

You can get the addon from:
Curse: »www.curse.com/addons/wow/collectinator
Wowinterface: »www.wowinterface.com/downloads/i···tor.html

Pet Journal Enhanced
Pet Journal Enhanced will change the look of your Pet Journal a bit.
The filters will gain a few more options such as sort by rarity, by specialization, or by level. This is going to be very helpful if you want to switch some pets and you find it hard to find exactly what you need.Each pet will have its specialization icon attached to it. so you wont have to click each pet to see its specialization. The names and the icon borders are colored based on the quality/rarity of the pet.

Using this addon will help you find and see things faster and easier.

You can get the addon from:
Curse: »www.curse.com/addons/wow/pet-jou···enhanced
Wowinterface: »www.wowinterface.com/downloads/i···ced.html

Pet Battle Teams
If you have multiple pet teams and if you are tired of switching between pets then this addon is exactly what you need. This will save up to 60 Pet Teams and it will allow you to switch between them very easy.

Very handy addon if you ask me, especially after you level a couple of pets.

You can get the addon from:
Curse: »www.curse.com/addons/wow/pet-battle-teams

Pet Theory
There were a few similar addons around but as far as I could find this was the only one that actually worked.
Whenever you are fighting or wandering around the world searching for pets this addon will help you a lot. Basically it will tell you the rarity/quality of the pet you encountered before catching it.
Even if you could figure it out this by yourself, by looking at the pet's health and stats, this addon will ease your work.

In my opinion this is a must-have for everyone.

You can get the addon from:
Curse: »www.curse.com/addons/wow/pet-theory

I'm pretty sure that there are more interesting addons out there that I haven’t had the chance to try, maybe some of them are better, but at least now you have an idea on how Pet Battle Addons can help you.
As a side note, even if this not an addon, do not miss the Wowhead's Battle Pet Maps.

Are you using any Pet battle addons? Which ones? Let us and the others know about your findings...
