    This is a rather bullshit statement. The thread was started with regards to purchasing rep pets with the charms. Some people like to collect pets without battling them. I enjoy having different pets for the sake of having the pets and having them out. I get little to no enjoyment from pet battles. The ability to not buy reputation rewards with gold (even if they are pets) is annoying to me, as now I will need to grind pet WQs (which at least isn't as bad if they scale to lvl 1, which makes things easier) just to buy the rep rewards.

    I am not thrilled about it. And it does matter. The thread wasn't about pet battles themselves, but the rewards as they relate. Your nonsense idea that players who aren't into pet battles don't matter is, frankly, stupid.

    This keeps them valuable (gold-wise).

    Some pets were still locked behind charms in Legion though. So you still had to do pet battles even if you just wanted to collect. Also you can buy any rep reward pet off of the AH as they can be caged. So you can still buy for gold if you absolutely don't want to do relatively easy world quests. If you really are just about collecting then you would get the basic pets for World Quests anyways because you would have a ton of charms by the end of expansion to get any reward you want.

    Ugg - being one of those "Not a big pet battle person but I love collected pets!" - I too really dislike this currency change. And Don't get the point, at all.

    I did miss the announcement during Legion that this would change, so now I have both currencies in my bank, but good to read I can get rid of the one.

    Or can I? I remember going to the pet vendors in Dalaran at the Pet Shop like a month ago and it still having pets obtainable ONLY with the OLD currency.

    I went checking prices (as I got none in Legion since I don't really do pet battles) on them and that's when I noticed it.

    Am I just mistaken in my memory? Or are there pets that are still available for the old currency at Ye'Olde Dalaran Pet Shop?

    And - yes it is stupid that ANY rewards already locked behind rep - is also having to be bought with a secondary currency! We should be able to buy rep rewards - ALL of them - with gold!

    It was very disheartening and demoralizing to look at the rep vendors and see I would get zippo nothing on some of them for raising them up (except for exalted mount) - without also having enough pet charms to buy the pets.

    Dirty tricksies Blizz... dirty tricksies. And serves no real point other than to force a purpose for grinding the tokens on people who don't normally pet battle. Because, as others have pointed out here, if we did pet battles we'd "have plenty soon enough."

    But YES there are those of us out here that just really like little pets - and don't like the pokemon stuff! *hrumps*

    (And yes, I'm using the mission table missions as often as they pop..which is maybe once a week...for about 30-50 if you get the bonus too. Joy.)

    Toys and Pets that required charms in Legion still require the old charms. It was only the upgrade stones and the pocket portal that were moved to require the new stones.

    You should also be fine with not collecting everything then. You wouldn't have any of the Celestial Tourney pets or Deadmines. Those took a lot more leveling and strategies to finish (at least Celestial Tourney). Doing World Quests even as someone who doesn't like pet battles is relatively easy. It only requires a dozen or so pets at 25 and you can find strategies on wowhead of Xu-Fu for all of the battles.

    It really is not a big deal that 6 pets for a Faction are locked behind both rep and charms. You can buy those pets off the AH if you really want to. It is six pets out of the all the pets they added. No complaints about having to grind island expeditions for pets? Out of all the things to complain about as a collector having to use charms for 6-12 pets is dumb.

    No complaint about achievements in dungeons? 1 million gold? etc. Don't pull the collector card when the effort to collect what you are complaining about is miniscule compared to all the other requirements to collect them all.

    I never pulled the collector card. I never said I needed them all. I don't. I have like..less than 300 pets. None of them higher than level 6. (And only three level 6s...)

    I never had an issue with pets as rewards from achievements, dungeons, etc. Because it wasn't/isn't "get this achievement and come up with 200 tokens too!"

    I do have issues with IE - the RNG upon RNG means I'm not touching that content for any reason until I can solo it next expansion . Because no I'm not gonna grind hours in a pug for the chance that a pet will one day drop - much less all the other stuff to get in there. Ugg. Hate grinding . But that's not what this thread is about.

    I am glad to hear old tokens work for the older content - I was very confused by the Dalaran pet shop. Course also means I gotta go back to Legion (no biggy though) to get a few more tokens as I don't have enough yet. So yeaa! Means I can still use them! *whew*

    I ONLY have a problem with rep + charms - because the rewards for rep grind are suppose to be the rewards for THAT grind. We don't have to have upteen other currencies to buy the mount, tabard, gear, etc. that are rep rewards (as they have always been - just for gold too). But for no good reason at all, now the pets require an additional currency. They aren't extra special pets with special abilities. The work has been done to unlock the reward - so just fricken give us the reward (as it has been in the past).

    Because for a pet battler - sure "a dozen or so" level 25 pets may be easy - but as I don't even have one, that is not easy. I have one level 25-pet-token and I've saved it because I don't know what the best "single" pet is to have at level 25!

    Yea, I can buy IE pets on the AH - I looked last night - most of them over 100K in gold. I'm not a rich player. And this thread isn't about that. Are the rep pets not BOP? Or don't require the rep to have them out? I'll look into that - though I doubt they're affordable (yet!)

    So no, I have no issue not having all the pets. I'm not trying to collect every single one of them. So I am fine with ones I have always chosen not to pursue due to RNG/Dungeon grind/whatever.

    I just want the rep reward pets to be REP rewards, like they always have been. So I can get a *few* of the new pets.

    Because there's plenty of us players who like pets for pets sake, since day one - but who don't care to play pokemon.

    There was *no* reason to put these six/12/whatever pets behind another grind wall (no matter how easy someone thinks the grind is, its still grind) - when the vast majority of pets in game already require pet battles (of some sort) to obtain (as they are only tameable). It was nice for hte rest of us to just be able to buy a pet, with gold, once we got to that rep level.

    So taking it away sucks. It wont' change and I'll keep doing mission tables until I have enough tokens for the ones I want to bother with and I'll skip over the rest as I always have. But it still sucks and they had no real reason to change it other than to force more grind for grind's sake. Changing the tokens to a new one along with now having token costs on things that are already unlocked with other activities- no purpose than to force more grind for grind's sake.

    And /that/ always sucks.

    Put the pets on a charm vendor (like the pet store) where you have to unlock nothing else but have the charms. Great!
    Put the rep rewards on the rep vendor - and rep rewards shouldn't have anything else to to get them but meeting the rep goal. Also great!

    Rep Requirements + Charm Requirements - booooo....

    It is definitely a bit annoying that a bunch of pets are locked behind reps and you need pet charms to buy them. This makes reputations feel worse. If such a thing is possible.

    This certainly isn't in my top.... thirty?... things that are wrong with the game right now, and I wouldn't make a thread about it, but I respect that your mileage varies.

    I find the complaint about reputation a bit ridiculous. You didn't grind exalted so you could buy pets, it was simply a side effect. At least on your main character, getting exalted isn't something you can realisticly avoid even if you tried.
