    How do You Get XP from Pet Battles?

    I've battled a few pets in Stonetalon on my new alt, and didn't seem to get any XP. Do you get from playing against other players through the queue, or am I just not noticing it?

    If you're seeing XP gains show up over your head for kills or quest turn-ins, you'll see them after you finish a pet battle that awards you some. Your team probably has to be around the same level as the enemy pets.

    you only get xp for the pets that you use in the battle. if you only use 1 out of your 3 pets then only 1 pet is going to get xp. also just like lvling a toon, the pets need to be in around the same lvl of your pets. if they are too low then you won't get much or any xp.

    You pets have to be around the level you are battling against. The XP scales by zones. Usually a bit lower then normal quests give in that zone at level.

    So if you are level 80 and doing level 1 pet battles in durotar... not really gonna do much for your XP

    Its actually based on your highest pet level. Whats the highest level of pet you've leveled? Ive brought most of my lowbies to The Heartland in Valley of the Four Wind to fight level 23-25 pets since im at the highest. I used to do it in Vale of Eternal Blossom until they blew the place up. Pretty decent around low 40s. Id get between 8-11% exp gain from per battle win.

    Try battling pets in Southern Barrens then. Try gunning for areas 2 levels above your highest level pet.

    Yes, but only if the pets you're using are roughly the same level as the critters you are fighting. Or at least 1 of them are, if the other pets are level 25. Just as a pet will only get XP if the other pets used are similar level, or 25.

    Key is, if your pet gets XP, you get XP relative to the zone's level to your own.

    Alright, thanks.

    So...XP gained is scaled based on the pet-pet ratio, not the toon-pet ratio. Got it.

    What about queued pet battles against other players? Do they yield XP?

    Yes, PvP pet battles give XP. I always do it on a lowbie if I'm doing a few matches (working towards 5k). Not sure what it is like at lower levels though.
