meh, I hate the whole ´lvl 25 pvp´ thing. To me the fun is collecting pets, leveling pets and finding rares. I don´t hate pvp pet battles while leveling, but there is little reason to do pet battles with a full team of 25s.The real problem is that is the ´bracket´ where all the idiocy takes place that we have to deal with. People making teams of 3 of the same pet, and all with turtle and healing abilities, and just prolonging a match for an hour hoping you quit ( ie, and taking max time to pick their ability).I was hoping the whole pet battle system was going to be more carefree... but here we go.. let´s make a team of 25s that you can´t kill.. The entire system is not balanced around being so competitive.would be much more fun if it were just to win 10 pvp matches per week, at least then it could be used to level pets.
Since pets are shared across all characters and multiple realms, what exactly is the point of species-specific flawless battlestones being BoA? How is that any different from BoP? I mean, great, I can mail my Flawless Elemental Battlestone to my alt... who has the same Elemental pets I do... so really it's just a way I can squander 30c?
It's certainly great to see an increase in pet models. However, it would be lovely if they took some time to develop the idea of pet battling a little bit more. I worry this will wind up going the way of archaeology...
For those complaining about the need to raid to get pets (I am assuming you mean current raids, because if you are complaining about doing old content, I simply cannot fathom why), keep in mind that all of the raid drop pets are cage-able (current and otherwise), so if you have a friend that raids, no issue.Also, very happy with the changes to the supply bag 'bad luck streak', since I know some people go weeks without stones.The addition of spirit's dropping stones in their bags is odd to me, personally, but kewl for more stone chances!And tyty blizz for splitting Fabled quest into smaller parts, that circuit was a little insane.
If we are to do more old raid content how about making some raid pieces bind on accountThis would be awesome. Let it apply to just the tokens, and restrict it to, say, 2 xpacs back ( so currently vanilla and BC raids).
little minds working for blizzard right now..hope this change soon...
So the new raid pets are Bind on Pickup?Drat. I'll have to head to Karazhan again.
So the new raid pets are Bind on Pickup?Drat. I'll have to head to Karazhan again.All of the raid pets are BoP.. even the ones we have now. But they can be caged after you learn them. I only figured that out this week because I got a drop in Naxx that I already had. I went to mail it to my bank alt to sell, it I couldn´t mail it because it was soulbound. Then I realized that I had to learn the pet, then cage it on my alt.
In less happy news, pet battles against wild and player pets are now viewable by others in the world. Not so great for PvP servers.I'm confused as to how this is different than before. I've been getting knocked out of pet battles by raging e-peens for months (which means they land the first blow, so you're screwed). When you're pet battling it just looks like you're standing there.
"Players can see the battling player as well. " Haven't they always been able to see players while they're battling pets?
is Pierre coming in 5.3?
Did the Seasoned Soldier change get reverted? I was looking forward to a cheaper WW while going TG.
Sooo lame... Blizz is making people do old content...How is this them holding a gun to your head?
Good news! You can stop saving for your Mini-Tyrael and now get the Vykrul pet or whatever its name is! :)P
Has there been any word yet on the drop rates of these pets?
Has anyone figured out how to defeat Gorespine? I have tried aquatic, flying, mechanical, dragonkin and combos of rare pets to no avail. He hits like a truck and his shield does 3 times the damage to your attack. Impossible to beat him.
More Blizzard lies"Bad luck protection has been implemented for Pet Supply rewards, and some quests have more rewards now.'got 24 bags today and only one stone. geting tired of all Blizzard bs.
Sooo lame... Blizz is making people do old content...Ah yes, another comment from a 12-year-old (or could be trolling). There is a huge difference between the word 'to make' and the word 'to encourage'. Blizzard is trying to do the latter.
Almost finished with 'The Longest Day', having already won every battle that awards a pet bag, and have only received one stone. So much for 'bad luck protection'. But then again, my luck is probably hard to protect against.
