Goodbye My Sweet Howl Bomb

PVP Pet Battle

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.

PVP Team:
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.


Pandaren Spirit Pets

Slowly but surely I’ve been collecting the Pandaren Spirit Pets available only from successfully battling the new Pandaren Spirit Tamers — of course it’s only a chance you’ll even find one of the spirit pets in your [Pandaren Spirit Pet Supplies].

Today I got the last spirit pet I needed, the Pandaren Earth Spirit, yay! I know some people are still having trouble battling the spirit tamers if that’s you be sure to check out my teams.

Patch 5.2 will be bringing some changes to Pet Battles.

– Fleeing a pet battle will no longer despawn the pet that was being battled, but doing so will now inflict some damage on the fleeing pet battle team.
Now I don’t know about you, but I’m worried – especially since I always forfeit many times to get that Thundering Spirit Tamer to lead off with Sludgey not to mention how many wild pets are forfeited in search of rares. Thoughts?

– Battle Pet Bandages now stack to 25 and are Bind to Account.
YAH, enough said on that one.

– A number of new pets can be found on the Isle of Lightning, including Rare spawn drops, wild pets, and raid boss drops.
New wild pets, I love battle pets and I am almost out of wild pets in need of hunting!

– Elite Battle Pets have been added to the game world. These rare pets will spawn alone against an entire team. A new quest has been added to track progress as these new pets are hunted down, and defeating that quest will award the new Red Panda pet.
Did someone say RED PANDA? … Awesome!!
