Lot’s of changes coming to pet battles. I haven’t had time myself but I believe the changes can be tested right now on the beta or PTR. Personally I’m really interested in how we’ll be handling these changes especially for to the Pandaren Water Spirit. Whirlpool and Geyser will now share the same ability slot. SO no more Howl Bomb /cries.
You can read the up coming on the changes yourself in the blue post on the official World of Warcraft forums “Legion Pet Battle Tuning “.
What are you going to miss the most?
I’m super bummed about the changes to Graves as well. I only recently managed to get my Graves pet, free once you hit level 20 playing Heroes of the Storm. I had been told he was awesome in PVP pet battles which I had not had much luck winning at all!! So if like me, your still working on your PVP pet battle achievements I suggest taking advantage of Graves while you can! I’ve found I win 2 outta 3 battles using the following strategy.
Fiendish Imp: Burn then Nether Gate.
Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling: Thunderbolt then Decoy.
Graves: Grave Destruction, Bonestorm, IF the current opponents pets is low health use Scull Toss till it dies. Rinse & Repeat.
FYI: Doing PVP pet battles currently counts towards the Draenor pet battle monument achievement too!
What PVP team have you found successful quite often?
One more thing, the Pet Charms awarded from completing the Draenor pet battle dailies are being reduced to roughly HALF of what’s being awarded now.
