    My team

    Mr. Grubbs (Tank) - The greatest pet ever, can tank like champ, self heal, dot and has a speed boosting attack. My main man

    Magical Crawdad (Healer) - Mr Pinchy's son is my support, He heals, Traps, and has a quick attack.

    Dark Pheonix Hatchling (DPS) - Still low level atm but this bird will be my sweeper, I prefer him over his brother the pheonix hatching because he is all about the offence. my bird-lock

    I'm currently using Clockwork Gnome, Nether Ray Fry and Little Fawn.
    Don't have many rares yet, so this is subject to many changes, obviously.
    But liking them so far.


    Edit: By the way, I remember reading that the cost to train Pet Battles was reduced to 10g. Should update it

    Well had the same problem, tried it at 0300 AM and NOTHING.
    Hopped in next day right at midnight and BÄM there they were. It seemed they stopped spawning about 15 to 30 minutes later. In my attempt to get a blue quality one i ripped them all apart until there was just one left and this one was bugged.

    Thank you for that

    If this mini game ever gets Tiers (like pokemon's Uber, Overused, Underused, etc) then

    Celestial Dragon, Fossilized Hatchling, Clockwork gnome and those Damn Bears will be top tier pets, because of the drakes stacking Ancient Blessing - http://www.wowhead.com/petability=611, With bears with Hibernate - http://www.wowhead.com/petability=247.


    I Lost my first few PVP Pet battle against Teams of

    Celestial Dragon, Fossilized Hatchling, and Pterrordax Hatchling because of how high they buffed there HP. 3 stacks was almost + 700 HP at level 15
    Some Damn Bear, Celestial Dragon and Clockwork gnome (fuck Build Turret - http://www.wowhead.com/petability=710 and Repair - http://www.wowhead.com/petability=278)

    I'm trying to decide what pets to use for my team.

    My main pet is Winterspring Cub, as it is part of my namesake and also the ground mount I use. But for the other two slots, I'm wondering what I should use.

    I'm considering the following options:
    - Deathy
    - Lil' Ragnaros
    - Fossilized Hatchling
    - Restless Shadeling
    - Clockwork Gnome
    - Mechanical Pandaren Hatchling
    - Pandaren Monk

    The reasons I'm considering them, are either because they are cool or they seem like they'd be strong. And I heard some of them are overpowered.

    Any ideas? ^.^

    So to work around Winterspring Cub (Beast), I would go with an Elemental (like Lil' Rag) and a Dragonkin (Deathy) to cover their weakness.

    Lil' Rag (Set up and Hide)

    [Sulfuras Smash] [Magma Trap] [Sons of the Flame]

    Lil'Deathwing (Sweeper)

    [Shadowflame] [Roll] [Elementium Bolt]

    Winterspring Cub (Sweeper)

    [Pounce] [Rake] [Devour]


    Feel free to switch out Rag and Deathwing for pets with a better movesets but i think this is a solid team to start with.

    I'm thinking Pandaren Monk, Fossilized Hatchling/Lifelike Toad, Restless Shadeling/Lil' Ragnaros.

    P.Monk for burst damage, Undead/Mechanical pets with a self/team heal/buff for sustain, as well as pets with abilities that damage the whole enemy team.
    (Even though I'd have to drop my fave pet, Winterspring Cub, I'd still use him as a vanity pet.)

    Monk is an amazing sweeper and has a nice stun, fossilized hatching has that (OP as hell because it stacks) HP buff ability :

    [Claw] [Ancient Blessing] [BONESTORM]

    looks like a good moveset.

    Restless is a bitch to get a rare, I have been camping the basements (they spawn at 1200 and despawn at 7) for the last 3 days and i have not seen 1.



    I have been thinking about my B team, looking for an AOE/field damage theme with AOE healing.

    -So should I have Fossilized in Slot 1 and just Ancient Blessing/BONESTORM and swap?
    -For Monk I'm not sure if I should go burst (Focus Chi/1000 Fists) or defensive (Staggering/Blackout).
    -And for the last slot, would it be better to have a healer like Lifelike Toad, who also has a mild cc in the form of Kiss, or something with a lot of sustain like Restless Shadeling/Molten Spiderling?

    (Sorry for all the questions, I just want to be sure before I spend hours leveling them all up to 25... It sucks that some aren't Rare, but I heard Blizz is going to add a way to upgrade pets to Rare next patch.)

    No problem at all.

    I would go with a tank setup (Staggering/Blackout) if you plan to use fossil to boost, AOE then switch.
    Magical Crawdad would be a great healer/trapper if you can get one. i posted my moveset on him earlier

    looks way too complicated for me to do seriously. Sounds like a decent raid time killer though.

    Apparently... I don't have Pandaren Monk, I could have sworn I got it during the donation event. (Is it possible for it to have disappeared?) o_0

    So... Should I just replace him with a different pet, or buy him for $10 >_<

    And I don't think Ancient Blessing stacks anymore...

    Check your account history or submit a ticket if your are sure you bought one.

    You replace him if you wish. Machine types have a few really heavy hitters (clockwork gnome)

    Just started doing this, it's so much fun! Current using: Proto-Drake Whelp, Snarly and Mechanopeep for no other reason than that all three have two different types of attacks. So, combined, they have 6 different types. After reading this thread I noticed there seems to be a lot of good combos and overpowered skills. I guess I'll get to that later

    I think that on OP spreadsheet, it should say that beast takes extra damage from mechanical and does extra damage to critters, atm it is vice versa. Check in-game tooltips for proof.

    That means there is harmony beetween classes.

    EDIT: This means that I will propably start using 3 rare beasts on pvp, hoping that there are lot of people that have readed OP spreadsheet and thought that critter=masterrace
    For pve i will start using 3 first rares i get my hands on.

Following along that assumption, you likely gain 25% less experience FOR THE TRAPPED pet, which means a reduction of 12.5% in a dual-pet battle and 6.75% reduction in a three-way battle.
    I don't like to sound like nitpicker, but wouldn't 25% loss from 1/3 pets (25:3) be 8.333...% aka 8 1/3%?

    Your quite right, thanks for that. as soon as i can find a new and correct chart i will update the OP. i will check the source of this faqto see if she corrected her math.

    I said 25% not because I don't like pet battles, but because there is so damned much to do in WOW!
    @Ghostcrawler:Some advice: [My pet issue] is why there were sub losses is one of the weaker arguments players use. Players don't have that data.
