More Easy To Get Battle Pets (Warlords of Draenor Edition)

Posted in WoW with tags , , , , , , on January 13, 2015 by diablo343

A new expansion means there are a lot of new easy to get battle pets. Here’s a few to get you started.

Fruit HunterFruit Hunter – Follow your nose to this easy to get battle pet. Located around 64,65 in Frostfire Ridge. A Mysterious Egg can be collected in Grom’Gar just to the west of the daily pet battle tamer, Gargra. Inside this Mysterious Egg is your Fruit Hunter. Unfortunately you have to wait three days for the egg to hatch. It’s in an area with a bunch of level 90 enemies, so it’s obtainable by anyone who can get to the zone.

Brilliant Spore – This spikey ball is a drop off of Rotcap, who is located south/west of Veil Akraz in Spires of Arak, right around 38,27. He’s a level 97 rare mob, so plan accordingly depending on your level and skill.

Meadowstomper Calf – This little guy is a reward from the quest New Babies in Nagrand. You have to coax 5 Tenderhoof Meadowstompers back to Digrem Orebar, the quest giver. This quest is started at 79,52 in Nagrand, outside of the Ring of Trails. You’ll probably come across it while leveling.

Royal Peacock

Royal Peacock – The Royal Peacock is a reward from Draenor Safari, the achievement for collecting all the new wild pets introduced in Warlords of Draenor. It’s automatically added to your journal upon collecting the final pet.


Soloing (or carrying a pet) On The Burning Pandaren Spirit

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 12, 2013 by diablo343

The Anubisath Idol is probably one of the best pets for PvE battles. It can be used to solo a couple tamers and is very usable to take down one or two pets on others. This time I’m going to walk you through soloing the Burning Pandaren Spirit with him in patch 5.4.

To get one of your own, head to the Temple of Ahn’Qiraj in southern Silithus. It’s a drop off Emperor Vek’lor. He’s part of the Twim Emperors boss, one of the more difficult battles in AQ, but is soloable with some persistence.

WoWScrnShot_111213_110040For my set up I take the Anubisath Idol with Crush, Stoneskin and Deflection in my first slot, a pet I’m carrying second and a third pet that’s strong against Fliers, in this case a Nordrassil Wisp. This third pet could also be a carry pet, but I like the security of having a pet that can take down BPS’s third pet, Glowy, in case of emergency. Any carry pets need to be able to take around 800 damage because Crimson’s Cyclone ability will hit them a couple times and BPS’s Immolate will deal an additional 300 or so.

Starting with your Anubisath Idol, cast Crush, Stoneskin, Deflection, Crush and repeat Crush until Crimson is dead. Ideally, you will miss on one of your attacks. This will take Deflection off cooldown for the first round of the Burning Pandaren Spirit. If not, don’t worry, you’ll still be fine. Don’t purposely pass a turn because if you miss after passing, you’ll screw up the plan.

If Deflection is off cooldown, cast it in the first round against the BPS, if not, just hit him with Crush. He always starts the battle with Conflagrate. Next, bring in your carry pet. BPS use your swap turn to heal then hit you with Immolate. Cast anything with your carry pet and swap back to your Anubisath Idol. For the next two rounds BPS will be casting nothing, so recast Stoneskin and wait for Conflagrate to be off cooldown so you can block it with Deflection, otherwise hit him with Crush.

If you have a second carry pet, repeat the process so this pet will only take minimal damage. When Glowy comes in you won’t need to dodge any of it’s attacks, just make sure you keep Stoneskin up and keep spamming Crush and you’ll finish him off with about half health.

And there you are, one more tamer you can carry a pet on.

Battle Pets You Probably Won’t Get

Now it’s time to make you jealous. These are some nice combat pets that you either can’t get anymore or are really hard to get. Also, some easier-to-get replacements.

Baby Blizzard Bear – A small polar bear that was given away to all players who logged in during Blizzard’s 4th anniversary week. Great for pet battles because of it’s Hibernate ability, which restores a lot of health for three straight rounds. He also has a Call Blizzard ability, which causes elemental damage for 9 rounds and chills enemies. Unfortunately, the only pet with identical abilities is Poley, who was only given away in China during 2006. Most of the pet bears have the hibernate ability, except the Robo one. I recommend using your first Flawless Beast Battle-Stone on him if you do have him.

Sprite Darter Hatchling – This cute little fairy-dragon used to be a reward from an Alliance only quest. Now it’s a very rare drop from mobs in Feralas, about 1 in 8000. The Life Exchange ability is what makes him stand out. It equalizes the health between you and your enemy, even if they have 2000 health and you have 1. Only two east-to-get pets have this ability: Nether Fairy Dragon and Mini Mindslayer. Ethereal Soul-Trader also has it, but he’s from the Trading Card Game and if you REALLY want it you can buy it off eBay for like $180.

Lumpy – Lumpy is a possible quest reward from You’re A Mean One…, a quest during Winter’s Veil. You get about a 1 in 65 chance it’ll be included in your quest reward and it’s only available 14 days a year. Lumpy’s best ability is Quake, a strong damage over time attack that also hits underground enemies. Similar and slightly easier to get pets are Pebble and Grinder. Both take some work, but are easier to get.

Mini Diablo – One of three pets included in the original collector’s edition of World of Warcraft, Mini Diablo can only be acquired if you’re lucky enough to find a copy that hasn’t already been activated. I think his best ability is Weakness which deals damage, slows your enemy for one round and decreases their damage for one round. Another strength is his range of abilities, he can be strong against Mechanical, Dragonkin, Humanoid and Flying depending on what attacks you choose. No pets have the exact same abilities, but Infinite Whelpling in The Cavern of Time and Viscidus Globule from Viscidus in AQ, each have Weakness.

Easy-To-Get Battle Pets You Might Not Have

Posted in WoW with tags , , , , on December 31, 2012 by diablo343

A lot of Warcraft players have been experimenting with pet battles lately. And since you found this post, I’m guessing you’re someone who wants to expand their collection. Here are a number of pets you might not have that won’t take a few thousand gold on the auction house to get.

Phoenix Hatchling – Looted off Kael’thas Sunstrider in Magister’s Terrace. It’s about a 1 in 16 drop off him in both normal and heroic mode dungeons. I recommend running it on heroic first, then normal over and over until it drops because there are some nice drops in here (mount, cosmetic items, transmog pieces) that only fall off heroic mode. This dungeon is easily soloable by anyone above level 80 or so.

Raiding With Leashes Pets – There are 12 pets that drop off of old raid bosses, a lot of them can be easily killed by a poorly geared max level character. All three in Molten Core bosses are basically tank and spanks and the first boss in the Temple of Ahn’Qiraj will go down pretty easily. So that’s four you can get with very little work. The rest you might need to look up a strategy first.

Kirin Tor Familiar – This one is obtainable after you complete the “Higher Learning” achievement. You have to click on 8 different books scattered around Dalaran. Each book despawns a few minutes after someone reads it and doesn’t respawn for like three or four hours. It may take few days or weeks to finally get all the books because of the merged servers, but the act of actually acquiring it is pretty easy. Warcraft Pets does a pretty good write up on the book locations.

Leaping Hatchling, Darting Hatchling, Ravasaur Hatchling and Razormaw Hatchling – These guys used to be drops from elder rare spawn raptors but now they come from nests and are a 100% drop rate. You get them in Northern Barrens, Dustwallow Marsh, Un’goro Crater and Wetlands. The nest are located among the raptors in these zones.
