Battle Pet Tamer Guide: Locations, Quests, and Rewards
2013/04/06 at 12:34 PM
Battle Pet Tamers are a great way to level up pets and get battle pet rewards, but they're sometimes hard to track down since they're scattered all over the place. 5.1 also added the
Taming the World
, which boosts battle pet experience gained by 10%.
This guide covers the locations of all the battle pet tamers, as well as the tamer quests and rewards. We've also included maps and screenshots to the pet tamers, and if you'd like to see the exact stats and breeds of their pets, you can easily find them on the
trainer pet pages
, now flagged as Untameable!

5.3 PTR: Valley of Spirits Shut Down, Pet Battle Accuracy Changes
2013/04/05 at 12:03 PM
Today's newspost covers two very different types of battles on the PTR--Battlefield: Barrens and pet battle changes. Since our
post last week on the Horde Rebellion
, we've found a few more signs of strife in the area and it's now been included in the
official 5.3 PTR Patch Notes
. Most notably, the Valley of Spirits has been shut down in 5.3 under Kor'kron surveillance.
And if you prefer lighter combat, pet battles are getting some accuracy changes in 5.3 to keep combat from feeling repetitive.
Valley of Spirits Shut Down
The first time we previewed Orgrimmar on the PTR, Kor'kron guards were keeping the troll section of Orgrimmar on lockdown. But things have gotten even worse--they've terrified the NPCs to the point where the Valley of Spirits has been shut down. Players cannot access the Auction House, Banks, class trainers, profession trainers, and all vendors. (Suddenly, those pet snakes from
may be rare...)
In addition, the portal to Blasted Lands has been removed, and

News Round Up: Pet Battle Experience Updates, 12/13 Hotfixes
2012/12/14 at 5:08 PM
We'll be putting up our
Feast of Winter Veil
guide later today, but there's also been some blue posts we want to share with you! Most importantly, pet battlers will be happy to learn that it will be easier to power level low-level pets due to an upcoming hotfix in which level 25 pets don't leech experience.
Also posted this afternoon: several hotfixes pertaining to battle pets,

's heroic loot table, and
We’ve been receiving a few inquiries over Twitter and through email regarding
, so we thought we’d share our thoughts on Pet Battle experience gains with you.
We will soon be applying a hotfix that causes level-25 pets to no longer “steal” experience from your lower-level pets. Previously, if you had a level-3 and level-25 pet grouped together for a battle, the XP earned would be shared between the two at the end. This resulted in some players doing what they could to kill off their level-25 pet so the level-3 pet would get all of the experience. You no longer need to worry about this as the level-3 pet will now receive 100% of the XP that’s earned, so long as it has participated in at least one round

News Round Up: Weapon Enchant Changes, Heart of the Wild, WoWkemon
2012/10/15 at 2:07 PM
Blizzard posted a ton of information today on several enchants that players have been puzzled about--
was underwhelming for several classes before, and now it works quite differently.
Recent blue posts have also addressed Heart of the Wild Changes, misconceptions about
Gara'jal the Spiritbinder
, and how players feel compelled to do
the dailies now that the 25-per-day limit has been removed.
On a lighter note, our friends at WoW Insider wrote a great article on
how to make your pet battles look like Pokemon
with the help of
. which you can get over at WoWInterface!
We recently hotfixed the
weapon enchants to improve their performance for many users. The important part for most players is that
is now is a useful enchant for all classes and specs, since it will trigger on all damage or healing, be it spell, melee, or ranged, and direct or periodic.
