Gráinne wrote today on: Nefarious Terry
I'm confused by your comment. Nefarious Terry doesn't have any other pets. Nefarious Terry IS a Level 25 Legendary pet. And this strat doesn't name any other pet? - - What other strats have you found this problem on, exactly? - - I don't know this strat myself, but it seems coherent. It might be helpful to add a "Bring in Chrominius" line where appropriate, but that doesn't seem confusing.

Thanks for trying but this script didnt work for me. Kepts using Snap when the enemy had burrowed and didnt seem to cast Renewing Mists (maybe once at the start?). My team died without taking out a single enemy.

Took 5 or 6 tries but finally worked. Thanks -

these strategies don't seem to match what pets really come up in this dungeon; is this guide outdated? I had the same problem in multiple fights ... pets on enemy team are totally differently named than what was in the guide. i'm confused. These guides have always worked for me in every other pet battle. Not this time.
Maritan wrote today on: Ruinhoof (Magic)
Brilliant. Thank you!
I didn't have any of the listed Slot #1 pets, so I ended up using Inky with Tentacle Stab, Bubble, and Dive, and was able make this work. -
THIS WORKS, engage battle with your tiny twister first, PASS, FORFEIT MATCH. This will lower your tiny twisters HP to make this strat work. Switch back positions to this strat and do it, itll work!

Some of these updates are just adding in images of the rares or item the pets drop from, or the vendors they can be purchased from.

However! There are a couple of new pet models, and one pet whose name was changed a little and fleshed out some.

As Always:

Blizzard has launched its summer sale, and a select number of pets have been marked at 50% off.

What's exciting, though, is that the Pandaria Collector's Edition pet, Lucky Quilen Cub, is included in this sale!

1. Pets for Sale




Lucky Quilen Cub




This charming pet from Pandaria is back!

Although Lucky Quilen Cubs resemble animated statues, their hard-as-stone skin conceals an affectionate heart. These trusted companions will look up to you and faithfully follow your every step—and might even bring some good fortune along the way.


Alterac Brew Pup




Descended from a long pedigree of champion rescue hounds, the Alterac Brew Pup has a nose for finding travelers in distress in the high altitudes of the Alterac Mountains. However, it’s the massive pup’s ability to reignite your soul with its "warm spirits" on a cold night that will make this furry friend your most trusted and treasured companion.


Cinder Kitten




Combining the cuteness of a newborn cat with the searing magma of the Elemental Plane of Fire, the Cinder Kitten arrives on scene as the hottest companion pet. Get each of your guildmates to get one of their own, and turn every raid night into a fiery feline frenzy.


Lil' Ragnaros




Get your guildmates fired up with Lil' Ragnaros, the mini-elemental lord. Not only can he serve as a cooking fire, but he'll also sporadically ignite nearby critters that wander too close to his burning form. As a being of pure elemental fire, he will even submerge into the world's molten core when you start moving and then reemerge next to you wherever you stop.


Soul of the Aspects




As your faithful companion pet, the Soul of the Aspects flies by your side through the skies of Azeroth, celebrating your adventures together with aerial somersaults and twisting corkscrews.


Twilight




This cuddlesome little critter can’t wait to curl up by the campfire after your latest campaign. She’ll captivate your comrades with her chromatic color-changing coat and climb her way into the core of your collection…and she’s especially cunning in combat. Adopt this cute little creature today!


This sale is good through 19 July, so get 'em while it's hot!

Happy Battling!

Jenafur




Today brought us another clue, as Jenafur, one of the longest-running secrets of WoW, is still eluding the Secret Finders among us:

Finally you'll just need to set the tune, to find the pattern take a top-down zoom

  • Clue on 16 May 20:

Only one thing gets a kitty into the right mood, when you open up a can of just the right food
  • Clue on 23 March 20:

kibbles of 4, sets the time, of a 4/4 beat, and defines the lines
  • Clue on 8 January 20:

Four Kibbles bounce in time,
Four Kibbles count the time

Super from the secret Finder discord also had this to say:
I have also been told that this, as well as the previous 2 hints, are related. This results in the following:

Kibbles of 4, sets the time, of a 4/4 beat, and defines the lines
Only one thing gets a kitty into the right mood, when you open up a can of just the right food
Finally you'll just need to set the tune, to find the pattern take a top-down zoom

I don't know the significance of combining the hints, but have included it in this pin as I was explicitly told it

Here's a review of everything that's been confirmed so far in the pins:

  • Exploits, such as cache sniffing, are not needed, expected, or useful.

  • Exploiting around having to solve the puzzles is a bannable offense, and easily detectable. Even if it were possible, it's not worth it. I'd [Celestalon] advise you don't even try.

  • The secret is working as intended, is solvable and does not require a group (confirmed for the current step).

  • The first step was to talk to Amara. The second step was the CCL's (Crazy Cat Lady's) house. The third step is Kara. It is unknown if going from step 1 -> 3 was a bug, or if it was just designed to find CCL first. CCL does not have anything to do with the solution to the current step.

  • The intended solution to go from CCL to Kara was the direction of the 2 kibbles when connected with a line.

  • Amara is the IRL name of someone & they worked on the secret. This means that the name of the initial NPC has nothing to do with the secret. Please continue to avoid discussing any topics relating to IRL topics, they will not be part of the secret.

  • From Jeremy Feasel: I can confirm that this (and probably all of the secrets that will be made) are friendly to the deaf and hard of hearing, accessibility is important!

  • Someone asked if this secret is colour-blind friendly. Yes it is.

  • Not time gated/rep gated or requires anything with a low drop %.

  • Someone asked if you have to be max level. There is no level requirement per say, but you will probably want to be able to high enough level to do kara. You can't complete it on a lvl 1.

  • Doesn't require a previous secret.

  • Can confirm death zone was a bug related to the secret

  • Have your music on sound on, cool stuff happens upon solving the secret :P (nothing to do with the current step, I was just told that upon completion you will want your sounds on)

  • Any items from the Toy Box or the Pet Journal are not required

  • From the guy with Jenafur: He was given it - it was not "solved" by him. He also does not know the solution and therefore cannot comment on its complexity/difficulty. He is in this Discord and wishes to remain anonymous. This is further proof Jenafur is in the game and is obtainable.



If you'd like to try your hand at the secret, head over to the Jenafur Secret Finder page, and the Discord link will be at the top of the page.

If you join the Discord, remember to read the pins! They'll have all the information I've posted above, as well as docs on what's been tried, theories, and so on.

Wowhead also has a guide that can be found here.


What say you? Do you think the Secret Finders have met their match? Or will they persevere?


Uuna




In a hotfix released by Blizzard on 23 June, Uuna's World Tour should be good to go!

Creatures and NPCs

Players can once again embark on their world tour with Uuna and show her the impressiveness of the Gate of the Setting Sun.



That's everything for now!

Best of luck to everyone searching for Jenafur, as well as those trying to upgrade the Uuna to get Baa'l.

Happy battling!

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.

Best guess is, the programming script didn't account for the extra day in a leap year.

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.

Thanks for all the details! Had an insanely busy week at work :/ I'll spend some time this weekend on my current project and hopefully will have time after to look into these numbers and the formula!

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.

I'm having an issue logging in on the browser I normally use (Firefox, I'm using Edge to make this post). When I try to log in with my Battlenet ID on Firefox, for some reason it logs me in on my second account and not my main account. I don't get any options as to which account to choose. I'm logged in on the proper account on blizzard.net, the launcher is logged on the proper account, but this page insists on using that other account to log in, and creates a new account. Obviously, this is a problem because all my pets are on this one (the other one is just for RAF). I've deleted the cookies, cleared the cache, quit Firefox and restarted it. I've deleted that new account that gets created, and tried logging in again and it just recreates that account with that battlenet id. I'm at my wits end trying to get logged in on the proper browser. Any ideas? (I can also log in to this account with Firefox on my Mac with no problem.)

Hey!

That's a really, really odd one. Usually when that happens, you are logged into the other Battle.net account *on your browser* (the battle.net app has nothing to do with this).
Just as an explanation, when you hit that "Login with Battle.net" button, Xu-Fu redirects you in the background to battle.net where it checks for authorization. If there is none, it will prompt you (you did this at the very beginning, first time you logged into Xu-Fu's). And if there is already an authorization it throws you right back to Xu-Fu letting the page know which battle.net ID it is. So whichever account is logged in on battle.net, that one will be sent back to Xu-Fu.

If you go to battle.net on Firefox and log out then into the correct account, you say this still happens?
Have you perhaps tried clearing the battle.net cookies as well?

If that doesn't work, there's one more thing you could try: go to your account security settings on Battle.net and check the connected apps on both your accounts. You'll find Xu-Fu in there. Just delete the connection both times and then log out of the battle.net website.
Then go back here and click the button. It will send you to battle.net and ask you to log in - you can then log in with the *correct* bnet account and this should bring you back here.

Sorry for this being so troublesome for you. I hope it will be solved with that but do let me know if you keep having issues!

For some reason, none of the new 8.3 strategies are loading into Rematch with a target. Thus, they don't autoload when interacting with the target.

Just thought I'd introduce those who are unaware to the root meaning of the word that is going to hit this site when Shadowlands launches.

There are so many changes coming that a massive amount of strategies are going to need to be changed. I would like to offer the - at least temporary - solution (I'm not a mod/admin so I don't know if it has already been put forward) of adding tags back to strategies, specifically a tag to denote whether or not the strategy is viable in Shadowlands content (bearing in mind; some people may not have purchased the xpac). (edited)

Hey!
Yeah, we're aware. A tag for Shadowlands already exists and once we know more details about the exact changes coming and what will be affected, we will tag all strategies affected by it. Might be a big clean-up process that will happen with Shadowlands.

By the way, there will also be a Patch 8.3. tag appearing soon on about 200 strategies due to the changes in some weather effects.

been having a problem for a few days with updating my pet collection. I don't see my server in the drop down list, I tried using another server and character. It updated the collection but When i try to use Magpie it doesn't recognize that I have any pets.

I know the issue isn't here as it also happens at warcraftpets as well.
