Same with Minfernals.

And all it takes is a tactically calculated "for the Horde" rallying the troops to make them all think "OMG she really does care!"

After 4 nights, I finally found a rare restless shadeling.

Found out I had three uncommon ones, and thus couldn't catch a fourth.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.

Why would you catch pets that aren't rare?

I'm currently comparing the saber cubs. Cheetahs are the fastest, but also the weakest and less healthy of all. Panthers are just as strong as the average Snow and Darkmoon Cub, but slightly less healthy and a bit faster. Snow Cubs are the healthiest, are able to be as fast as a panther (while losing some of their power which could make the panther a better choice if you favor speed), and can be the strongest amongst all saber cubs. Why is choosing pets so darn difficult? I guess I'll stick with my lashtail hatchling as my beast pet... I can't compare that one to other rare raptors due to not owning them.

My team consists of Tootsiepops the Core Hound Pup, Katrana the Onyxian Whelpling and Mojo, all at level 17. I haven't gotten past the Kalimdor-quests yet, and I take it slow, but it's the best shit ever.

Sorry for the double post. Anyways, I found this incredibly useful site that allows you to see your pet's breed (or nature if you prefer pokémon terms) and the stats it will have at level 25. Many/most non-capture pets are also confirmed to be worse stats wise due to their unfavorable/worse breeds.

Most of them are common quality too.

Also that's a really cool tool with the IDs and stuff

EDIT:Battle stone will be used to upgrade the Pet quality if i ever get to play again i guess i will prioritise upgrading uncapturable pets

5.1 notes:
Pet Battles
  • A new item has been introduced that can be used to upgrade the quality of Battle Pets: Battle-stones.
  • Battle-stones are available in two basic types, general purpose Battle-stones that can be used to upgrade the quality of any pet, and family specific
  • Battle-stones, which can only be used to upgrade pets of a specific pet family.
  • Battle-stones are available in two qualities: Flawless Battle-stones can upgrade pets directly to Rare quality, while Polished Battle-stones will upgrade a pet to Uncommon quality.
  • Players will have a very small chance to obtain a general purpose Flawless Battle-stone after winning a match against wild pets; defeating higher level opponents increases the chances of obtaining a stone. These valuable items are not soulbound, and can be sold on the Auction House.
  • Family specific Flawless Battle-stones can be found in the Sack of Pet Supplies obtained from performing Pet Trainer quests, and are Bind on Pickup.
  • General purpose Polished Battle-stones can be purchased for 1000 Justice Points.

Pet Journal
  • The quality of each pet is now visible in its slot in the Pet Journal.
  • Pets can now be filtered by name, type, rarity and level, and filters will remain in place each time the Pet Journal is viewed.
  • It is now possible to search locations in the Pet Journal. For example, searching “Westfall” will display all the Battle Pets that can be found in Westfall.
  • Right clicking a pet's portrait will now offer the option to look it up in the Pet Journal.
  • Players can now keep up to 650 pets.
  • Battle Pet tooltips will now display whether a pet is owned, and how many pets of that type are owned.
  • Pet Quality is now displayed in battles, and will be visible on portraits, names and tooltips.
  • The level of battle pets in a zone can now be seen on the map, and it’s now possible to see the strength of wild pets relative to your team at a glance.
  • Backline pets now display debuffs affecting them as well as the remaining duration of these effects.
  • The experience multiplier obtained by all seven Grand Master pet trainers in Pandaria has been increased to x5 from x3.5.
  • The experience multiplier obtained by defeating Pet Trainers Julia Stevens, Old Macdonald, Zunta, and Dagra the Fierce has been reduced to x2.5 from x3.5.
  • Macros have been added that allow for summoning random pets and random favorite pets.
  • The achievement Taming the World now awards the Safari Hat, which increases pet experience gained from Pet Battles by 10%.
  • The I Choose You achievement has been added for defeating Zen Master Aki. The reward for this achievement is 3000 gold.
  • A new Master Pet Tamer offering daily quests has been added to the Darkmoon Faire. Completing quests for the new trainer will offer the chance to acquire a new pet: the Darkmoon Eye.
  • Two new Battle Pets now roam Darkmoon Island waiting to be caught.
  • Fixed a bug where the Gazelle would join pet battles.


Sooo glad they are bumping up the pet limit. I keep hitting it.

I wish they'd also release a way to change the breed/nature of a pet.

You mean changing a pet into a different type while keeping its moveset and/or stats? That'd kinda fuck balance.

Nah, with nature/breed I mean the stat distribution. Like in pokémon with things like bold, impish, adamant, etc. One of my favorite pets, the Lashtail hatchling, has the breed 3 which isn't one of the best breeds. If possible I would like to change his breed to 5 or 15, which would be more beneficial for his move set. That might seem like cheating, but, since some pets can't be caught, there's no other way to get them exactly like you'd like them to be.

Warcraft BattlePets can come in various breeds and quality.

Also, not all kind of breeds have the same amount of bonus spread.

The best in slot breeds 4/14, 5/15, 6/16 have the maximum of 2 points. 7/17, 8/18 and 9/19, focusing on 2 equally spread bonuses, are the second best breeds points wise. 10/20, 11/21 and 12/22 are a little bit worse points wise because they spread the points across all 3 stats. And the worst of all breeds is the default, perfectly equally balanced, breed 3/13 with only 1.5 points (0.5 in each).
This.

Didn't you know that pokémon have natures that raise one stat while decreasing another? That's basically what the pet breeds are.

It is the Pokemons personality traits which, if i remember correctly, alters the stats the pokemon. For a (made-up)example a Bold Ratata pokemon would normally have more attack than a Impish Ratata.

Actually bold pokémon have less attack and both of those natures raise defense.
List of natures.
