    Marc Ottensmann released a Game of Thrones style intro for World of Warcraft.


    Armory Stats - Level 25 Pet Achievement
    Today we are taking a look at when players earned the All Growns Up! achievement. Keep in mind that only players active since August 1st were included in this data, so players that are inactive or quit long ago after leveling a pet to 25 are not represented.

    You can see a nice increase in the number of players after the release of Patch 6.1, which added the Ultimate Battle-Training Stone for everyone with a Tier 3 garrison. If you haven't done it on alts already, be sure to do so as each character can get one! If you already have several Level 25 pets, you can get more stones with the bonus event going on now.

    Pet Battle Bonus Event September 23-28

    Before you charge forth with your lower-level charges, make sure to pick up the quest “The Very Best”, lest you miss the chance to wrest an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone into your chest. All you need do is queue up for PvP Pet Battles with a team of three level-25 pets and obtain five wins before the event ends.

    This time around, which three pets will you take into PvP Pet Battles? Let us know in the comments below.

    Good question, we'll have to avoid confusion there. Ancient Tome is a bit of a special case, to be fair... (WatcherDev)

    Ghostcrawler Tweets
    Ghostcrawler still occasionally talks about WoW. Remember that he no longer works for or speaks for Blizzard.

    Murkalot, Blackfuse Bombling and Bonkers. Only weakness are undead teams. You open with Murkalot's Inspiration, it will pull Bombling and you will use buffed Armageddon. Rest is on S/S Bonkers - dodging, punching and stuning. Use Blessed Hammer or Falling Murloc if needed.

    Nice intro, but why did he use the GoT theme song? With all the amazing and beautiful music Blizzard has produced for Wow over the years, surely there must be something that would fit?

    Maybe because the whole point was to mimic the Game of Thrones opening? Iunno

    I leveled 3 pets during MoP since I was mainly a casual player during the small time I played during that xpac and had a lot of free time. I had been a little excited to finally do all those pet battle dailies I had seen but could never do. Immediately found out that one team of 3 level 25s was not sufficient in the slightest to do any of those dailies, since you are pretty much required to use weird strategies on the harder dailies. Was rather pissed and stopped doing any pet crap until WoD.
    And now I have probably well over 100 level 25 pets. It's ridiculous how easy it gets to level pets once you have already have a handful of 25 pets. The rich get richer. Until that instant-25 stone was introduced, getting into pet battling was incredibly tedious.

    The WotLK, Cataclysm, Pandaria and Draenor pet trainers are like the raid instances of pet battles, and the trainers prior to that represent dungeons.
    Beating the raid pet trainers with any random pets doesn't make much sense. It's like you enter a raid and expect to finish it only using the abilites Track Beasts, Mind Vision and Commanding Shout.

    Have you ever even watched Game of Thrones? He made this to be a duplicate Game of Thrones intro but with WoW. The animations were made to look like the GoT intro, which is why their music was used. That's why dude.. Lol...

    I won't be so sure about "real news" on Blizzcon it would be more accurate to said "Over hyped news" since they announce lots of things for the game that they later on changed or remove altogether.

    And elemental teams and basically all teams people are actually using, with heavy aoe dmg. And you're already giving them one death (armaggedon) for not that much dmg tradeoff.

    Yet to see this team win any battle other than against full dragon teams... they just get destroyed by Bonkers

    Meh. The pet battling system is a watered-down Pokémon, so I went into it with a Pokémon mindset. You can use pretty much any team you want in Pokémon and still succeed. Yeah, type advantages will help, and having a disadvantageous type match-up will be difficult, but it's never impossible. That's not the case in WoW, though. I'm ok with the system now, since I have so many pets. But it was rather upsetting to have put all that time in back then leveling pets up only to find out it was mostly wasted.
