As if there wasn't enough to do in the wildly popular MMORPG, World of WarCraft, Blizzard introduced pet battles.

As if there wasn't enough to do in the wildly popular MMORPG, World of WarCraft, Blizzard introduced pet battles. This fun and quirky system allows Pokemonfans and collectors alike to find new avenues of adventure within Azeroth alongside a team of trusty companions. Most original pets became battle pets along with hundreds of new ones. With so many options, how does one know what the best options are?

From vanilla to Battle for Azeroth and beyond, there are hundreds of tamable pets in the wild, lootable from dungeons and raids, or collected from special events. Each one comes with its own unique stats separated into health, power, and speed. Explore some of the best options the game has to offer and build an unbeatable team.

Updated January 9th, 2021 by Christopher Fain: As players venture into the newly released Shadowlands expansion, they eventually encounter new and dangerous battle pets. Those that want powerful teams to take them on and even tame them are going to need to know what some of the best options are.

Choosing the best pets for a team goes beyond their basic stats. It's also a study of their ability slots and deciding which abilities in each tier better compliment a team. A thorough understanding of the mechanics of each ability helps many a battle pet tamer build the perfect team to take on the new and exciting challenges in the realms of death.

10 Anubisath Idol

The Anubisath Idol is a stoic remnant of an ancient empire and a rare quality Humanoid pet from Ahn'Qiraj. At level 25, it has 1,725 health, 276 power, and 244 speed. Slot one ability options include Crush, with an advantage against Dragonkin, and Demolish, with an advantage against Beast. Slot two ability options include Sandstorm, with an advantage against Aquatic, and the Stoneskin buff. Slot three ability options include the Deflection buff as well as Rupture, with an advantage against Mechanical.

This pet also comes with the Humanoid passive ability which heals the user when it deals damage. At maximum level, the Anubisath Idol is a powerful companion that swiftly power-levels other pets and takes on most tamers with ease. It's a primarily slow attacker, but Deflection always goes first.

The number of pets in the game is huge and grows with each new patch, meaning it’s incredibly hard to keep up and find the best ones. This is not the easiest task even for experienced players, and beginners will surely get lost in this variety of pets. Overgear will help you to choose the Battle Pets worthy of your attention. Now, without further ado, hold on to your Battle Training Stones, and let’s take a look at our selection of these cute and dangerous little fighters!

Buy gold at Overgear

With enough gold you can buy a lot of pets. Overgear is ready to provide gold at every realm and for both factions in 30 minutes!

Anubisath Idol

Anubisath Idol

Those who are already familiar with the pet battles will not be surprised by the first representative of our selection. Anubisath Idol has long maintained its position as one of the strongest pets with the high defense level, which allows it to defeat most opponents including elite foes. When used in PvP, it can cause serious moral pressure on enemies; which is why other players try to counteract Anubis in every possible way, though in most cases – unsuccessfully. Having two of these guys in the team may be considered impolite by others.

Advantages of Anubisath Idol:

  • Strong defensive abilities, incredible survivability
  • Self-healing
  • Decent damage

How to get Anubisath Idol:

There is so to say a golden trio of pets that remain extremely useful and powerful throughout the last three expansions.  They allow you to win 70% of battles without preparation. We present the honorable members of this trio: Bone Serpent, Servant of Demidos, and Dread Hatchling. It’s a quite versatile setup with good synergy, and it is tearing up most of what you might meet in PvP. Here they are:

Bone Serpent

Bone Serpent

Bone Serpent – even being nerfed by moving the main combo abilities in a shared slot, this miniature Avatar of Hakkar remains to be a somewhat meta choice. Has a unique and near-exclusive Bone Barrage ability.

Advantages of Bone Serpent:

  • Set of quite powerful abilities
  • Good sustained damage through Bone Barrage/Death and Decay
  • Works well with other Call Darkness/Nocturnal Strike pets, such as another member of our chosen trio – Dread Hatchling.

How to get Bone Serpent:

Servant of Demidos

Servant of Demidos

Servant of Demidos is one of the easiest yet strongest pets to use. Don’t be deceived by the small health pool, it is not an easy breakable glass cannon – the combination of abilities allows this pet to survive the onslaught of the enemy while landing some heavy critical shots. It has only a 15% chance to drop from Demidos when he is active, so it might take you a few attempts to get one unless you go straight to the AH.

Advantages of Servant of Demidos:

  • Heavy-hitting Magic attacks
  • Exclusive spell – Magic Sword, move with a 50% crit chance.
  • Siphon Anima – reliable and useful healing ability. A life-steal from the enemy pairs well with the passive which prevents this pet from taking more than 35% of HP from any single hit.

How to get Servant of Demidos:

  • Drop from rare spawn Demidos in Shadowmoon Valley.
  • Can be bought on the AH

Dread Hatchling

Dread Hatchling

This little boy is one of the rewards from the Warlords of Draenor Collector’s Edition. However, there is a real killing machine hidden behind this cuteness. The Call Darkness and Nocturnal Strike combination can hit like a truck, often knocking down opponents before they even realize what hit them. Peck and Nocturnal Strike abilities make it an absolute aquatic killer. It is a go-to pet for many situations and is worth getting for every serious pet battler.

Advantages of Dread Hatchling:

  • Absolute domination over Aquatic family
  • Heavy-hitting combination of abilities

How to get Dread Hatchling:

  •  Purchase the Warlords of Draenor Collector’s Edition

Unborn Val’kyr

Unborn Val'kyr

Unborn Val’kyr – this beautiful undead lady is a must-have for any serious pet battler. Might take a while to get, but it is worth it. While not being overpowered as she used to be, she is still fun to play and provides some strong cards for the team, such as Curse of Doom and Unholy Ascension, the last one being a great annoyance to foes for a whole 9 rounds. Val’kyr serves you well, even in death.

Advantages of Unborn Val’kyr:

  • Can turn the battle in your favor even in death. Unholy Ascension debuffs all the pets of the opposing team for an additional 25% damage done per hit for a whopping nine rounds. Val’kyr gets the last word.
  • Deals serious damage with unavoidable, uninterruptable DoTs.

How to get Unborn Val’kyr:

  •  Encountered as a wild pet in Northrend. Only one spawns on the entire continent at a time, respawn is fast, about 5 minutes.

Molten Corgi

Molten Corgi

Molten Corgi was a limited-time pet for those who logged in the game during WoW’s 10th Anniversary. If you are among the players who obtained one, you can put his Superbark, to good use – this ability cannot take a foe below 1 HP, which is useful to capture weak wild pets, just be careful not to kill the target with the damage-over-time effects. 

Advantages of Molten Corgi:

  • Superbark/Weakening Blow should be used when you’re out collecting wild pets, because you can get them low for capture, without risking overkill.
  • Beauty and utility plus the cutest doggy animation ever

Kun-Lai Runt

Kun-Lai Runt

In short, Kun-Lai Runt is a powerhouse – resistant to Critter attacks, and with the arsenal of Beast counterattacks, it is a double counter to the vast amount of Critters all around Azeroth. Incredibly useful to have on the team against the three critter pets for the legendary daily quests – it receives almost NO damage, while its abilities do the job.

Advantages of Kun-Lai Runt:

  • Heavy-hitting abilities
  • Powerful counter against Critters
  • The synergy between all three abilities

How to get Kun-Lai Runt:

  • Encounters as a wild pet in the snowy peaks of Kun-Lai Summit.

Qiraji Guardling

Qiraji Guardling

Qiraji Guardling is a good performing and cheap alternative to the Anubisath Idol with a very similar moveset. It can be found near The Scarab Wall and The Scarab Dais in the southwest area of Silithus ONLY in Summer (Starts spawning: June 21; Stops spawning: September 23).

How to get Qiraji Guardling:

  • Encountered as a wild pet by the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj in Silithus.

Sunreaver Micro-Sentry

Sunreaver Micro-Sentry

It is a must-have pet for any intermediate pet battler. While many pets have access to Call Lightning ability, Sunreaver Micro-Sentry is the only one to have Fel Immolate at the same time. You can consider him as one of the go-to mechanical Pets, one that successfully shreds the Beasts to pieces.

Advantages of Sunreaver Micro-Sentry:

  • The strong synergy between abilities
  • Good counter against Beasts

How to get Sunreaver Micro-Sentry:

  • Drops from the rare elite Haywire Sunreaver Construct on the Isle of Thunder. The mob roams around the west side of the beach, south of Ihgaluk Crag.

Graves

Graves

Last on our list, but by no means least, Graves is a promotional pet obtained by reaching Level 20 in Heroes of the Storm. This is a very time-consuming task because your account level on HOTS goes up when your characters level up. Graves is an AoE Undead pet. Using Bonestorm or Grave Destruction, you can hit the back row multiple times in a battle, while the Consume Corpse ability also makes him synergize other Undead pets that use Haunt, such as Unborn Val’kyr.

Advantages of Graves:

  • Good AoE abilities
  • Strong against Humanoid teams

How to get Graves:

  • Reach Level 20 in Heroes of the Storm. Your best solution is to level up 20 heroes from level 1 to 2, which is going to take 20 matches. We suggest you play in a team with people against AI.

Mentioning all of the useful pets in one article is an impossible task. For example, to complete different pet-dungeons you will have to level up specific pets chosen for that single task. The main thing about gathering the combat team is to understand why are you bringing a certain pet to the collection. Once you understand this, you will be able to find cheaper and easier to obtain pets with similar abilities that will benefit your team. As for now, having collected at least these pets and leveling them up, you will be able to confidently complete most of the Pet-related events.

A lot of pets can be bought at an Auctionhouse with gold. If you need it – Overgear is always ready to provide gold at any realm!

Epic quality battle pets a possibility in Legion

The latest alpha build for Legion has brought with it a few new pet developments. In addition to new pets, some toys, and a new tamer with a whole team of corgis datamined by Wowhead, there’s an important addition for alpha testers. A special vendor has joined the alpha community with a new battle stone, unlimited leveling stones, and Pet Charm currency — all of which will help us get a feel for just how pet battles will play out in Legion.

But we expect to see these battle stones in the live game, too, and they offer a big upgrade. Like battle stones we’ve seen in the past this new stone increases the rarity of a pet, but the new Immaculate Battle-Stone raises it to epic — purple. Since the current maximum rarity is rare — blue — this has the pet community in a bit of an uproar. 

But how do you get these new battle stones? Next to the kindly test vendor is an Exotic Pet Supplier who trades in Mystery Bags that have a guaranteed chance at one of the new epic rarity upgrade stones. These bags are a whopping 200 charms a pop, and the stones that come from them are assigned to a specific pet family. When I opened ten bags worth 2,000 charms, I got one each of Immaculate Aquatic, Dragonkin, Humanoid, and Beast Battle-Stones, a whopping six Undead. And as you might guess, the stones offer considerable bonuses. I started with a common level 25 Nether Faerie Dragon:

  • Original stats: 1186 HP, 245 Speed, 245 Power
  • Rare stats: 1384 HP, 289 Speed and Power
  • Epic stats: 1482 HP, 311 Speed and Power

I’m still super excited about apparent baby theropods with feathers, but this has taken the wind out of my sails a bit. For pet battlers in Legion, this potentially means collecting a lot of battle stones — and a lot of Pet Charms to buy them. These are the same charms from Warlords, and because they’ll be used to buy other pet-related items in Legion it’s not a bad idea to start farming them now.

Will there be other ways to upgrade pets or acquire battle stones? We don’t know yet.

Thankfully, feedback can be directed to the devs about this item in this thread on the official pet battles forums. Pet dev Jeremy Feasel has also asked for feedback on Twitter on a few other ideas, like cosmetic variants rather than statistical ones.

Pet Battle Type Tier List in World of Warcraft

Guide to WoW Pet Battles

by Quintessence and Breanni

WoW Pet Battles are a new type of turn-based mini-game within World of Warcraft. Pet Battles allow players to raise their companions’ level (up to level 25), capture wild pets, and even battle other players' companions.

Contents 

Pet Battle Resources

Here some of our favorite Pet Battle resources. We're always expanding these resources, so check back often!

You can calculate the battle stats of any pet (at any level and rarity) by checking the "Battle Info" tab in the pet profiles found right here on WarcraftPets. These profiles are full of valuable information and community comments.


Contents

Getting Started with Pet Battles

Pet Battles Trainer

To get started on becoming a pet battling master, seek out a Battle Pet Trainer in one of the lower level starting zones or in Stormwind or Orgrimmar.


Trainers will teach you Battle Pet Training for 10gold, as well as how to Track Pets on your minimap.


The level requirement to receive Battle Pet Training is level 5, and once you've learned how to battle on one character, all your other characters will also receive the training.


In addition, the Battle Pet Trainer can teach you a race-specific pet if you don't already have it in your collection. However, the trainer will only offer to teach you the pet that is designated for your race.

Race-Specific Starter Pets

Here's a full list of each race's trainable companion. Note that many of these pets are also available from vendors located in or nearby faction capitals.

Although the Battle Pet Trainer will only offer to teach you your race-specific companion, it is possible to add all of these pets to your collection. You can either find them in your faction’s auction house or you can create a character of the race whose pet you would like to learn. Using your new character, you can seek out any battle pet trainer in major cities. After you learn the pet, you can delete the character; the pet you learned will not be removed from your collection.

The Basics of Pet Battles

After training the Pet Battles ability, the first slot in your Pet Battles team will unlock. To have an active pet on your team, you'll need to select a companion from the list in your Pet Journal, and drag it into the first space under Battle Pet Slots. You can unlock the other two slots by completing the achievements Newbie and Just a Pup.


But before you head off to conquer the critter and companion world, you'll need to speak with your trainer again. The trainer will start you off on a short quest chain that will teach you the ability Revive Battle Pets. This spell is essential, as it’s the most convenient way for you to heal and resurrect your wounded and fallen pets.


Once you've learned how to heal your companions, you're pretty much all set to take on the wild world of Azeroth and beyond!

Pet Tracking and General Combat

WoW Pet Tracking

The ability to track wild pets will allow you to see which critters are capturable and which aren't. If you have the tracking ability selected for your mini-map, a green paw print will show up if a wild pet is nearby. This same icon will also appear above a critter if it is a pet you can battle and catch.


When you've chosen a wild pet you would like to battle, right click on the critter and it will take you into a unique Pet Battle UI. You can't engage a Pet Battle if you are in combat, and any attack from a player or nearby creature will remove you from the Pet Battle.

TIP: Be sure that the area in which you start the battle is a fairly flat and clear spot. If there are large objects obstructing the area, such as a house or a large boulder, you won't be able to begin the battle. Likewise if there isn't enough ground space.

For the duration of the fight, creatures in the immediate area will not be visible to you (but they may still attack you if they wander too close). Keep in mind that other players will still be able to see you and attack you if you are eligible for player vs. player (PVP). Other players will also be able to view your pet battle in real time, including the pets involved as well as their health as the match progresses.

The Pet Battle UI

The Pet Battle combat UI will show you your active pet's abilities, your opponent's health, stats, quality and abilities, and there will be options for you to switch pets, pass a turn, capture a pet or forfeit the match.


Pet Battle UI

The golden border and the 'speed' mini-icon surrounding a pet's portrait indicate its initiative (i.e., whether it will be the first to use an ability or attack each round). Initiative is based on a pet's speed, and if this stat is higher than your opponent's, you will be designated to go first.

Your Pet-Powered Arsenal

Each pet has 3 abilities it can use during a battle, but a total of 6 to choose from. They will also have a total of 3 active spell slots that show which abilities can be used during a Pet Battle. The first spell slot will already be unlocked, but the second and third will only become available once the companion has reached a certain level. Other spells will also unlock after reaching higher levels.


Each slot has two spell options, and you can switch abilities in each, but only before and after your pet battles—not during. To switch an active ability, click on a pet's active slot in your Pet Journal, and a select which ability you'd like your pet to use from the drop down menu.


Battle Ability Tooltip

When hovering over an ability, the tooltip will tell you whether or not that attack is weak or strong against certain pet types. Additionally, you can hover over the opposing team's pets and view their attacks during combat. This will be important since it’s a good idea to pit a pet that's strong against the opponent's pet who's vulnerable to that type.

How Pet Battles Work

Combat is turn-based and there is no time limit on each round in a PVE Pet Battle. You can take your time to determine which spell to use next. Some pet abilities have multiple round cooldowns, while others can do extra damage if certain conditions are met. Be creative and have fun testing which combination of attacks works best against different wild pets!


If your pet's health gets too low or its attacks aren't very effective against a certain combatant, you can always switch out your current pet with another companion on your team. Only pets that are considered active (i.e., those in your three Battle Pet Slots), may be switched in and out during the battle. Once the match is over, you can always change up your active pet team, which is useful if one of your pets is low on health or dead.


Each battle that you win will yield experience for each pet that participated. However, deceased companions will not receive any experience (so make an effort to keep them alive by swaping in a different pet). Experience gains are based on your pet's level compared to the wild pet. Defeating a higher level opponent will grant more experience than a much lower level one, but be ready for a tough fight!

TIP: Your pets won’t gain as much experience when you capture an opposing battle pet rather than kill it. Keep that in mind if you’re looking to level your pets quickly.

Higher level wild pets are often accompanied by more than one critter in battle. Only after beginning the battle will you be able to see any accompanying pets on their team. To win the battle, you will need to defeat (or capture) all of the opposing battle pets, even the newly joined ones.


Contents

Healing Your Battle Pets

After each Pet Battle, any injured companion will automatically regain 50% of the damage that was taken during combat. But if any pets on your team are severely low on health, or worse... dead... you have a few options.


Revive Battle Pets spell

The Revive Battle Pets spell (icon pictured at left) will be the primary way to heal your companions and resurrect them. Clicking it heals and resurrects all of your pets in your Pet Journal, including your active team. This ability can only be used out of combat and has an 8 minute cooldown, so use it wisely.


If a companion dies during the battle, it will need to be resurrected before it can participate in another encounter or be summoned as a traveling companion. Get that pet a medic! Or in this case, a Stable Master. Stable Master NPCs can heal and revive your pets for a small fee, and there is no cooldown on the Stable Master's heal. You’ll find Stable Masters in major towns and cities across Azeroth.

FYI: Both the Revive Battle Pets ability and the Stable Master's heal are put on a 3 minute lock-out at the moment you log in. This is to prevent players from rapidly switching back and forth between characters to use these healing abilities on pets since the cooldown is not shared between characters.

Heal spell on cooldown? Can't seem to find a Stable Master? Well, you're in luck because there's yet another way to heal your companions!


The Battle Pet Bandage is the third way to heal and resurrect your pets. It's a random drop from the Sack of Pet Supplies that you can obtain by defeating NPC Pet Tamers. It functions in the same fashion as the Revive Battle Pets spell, but it doesn't have a cooldown.

TIP: Battle Pet Bandages are bind-on-account so you can move them between all your characters. Additionally, they are stored in stacks of 25.

Contents

Battle Pet Families and Abilities

Each pet is categorized into a group or family type. There are 10 pet families: Aquatic, Beast, Critter, Dragonkin, Elemental, Flying, Humanoid, Magic, Mechanical, and Undead.


Every pet family has its own strengths and weaknesses, as well as a passive bonus. This information is helpful to know so you can plan stronger attacks against pets who are vulnerable to them, and defend against pets whose attacks are strong against your pet type.

Strong vs. Weak

The table below shows which pets families are strongest or weakest versus other families. Strong attacks receive a 50% damage increase (base dmg x1.5) while weak attacks suffer a 33% damage penalty (base dmg x0.66).

The chart below (created by Khlammy) provides a make-shift "cheat sheet" that includes the info in the table above.


WoW Pet Battles: Strong vs. Weak Infographic

TIP: Get our Pet Battles Cheat Sheet, providing you with a printable version of the chart above. It's a great quick-reference while you play.

Passive Pet Family Bonuses

Each family conveys a passive bonus to pets of that type. These bonuses can have a significant impact on the outcome of a Pet Bettle under the right circumstances.

  • Aquatic: Harmful damage over time effects are reduced by 50% on Aquatic pets.
  • Beast: Beats deal 25% extra damage below half health.
  • Critter: Critters are immune to roots, stuns, and sleep effects.
  • Dragonkin: Dragons deal 50% additional damage on the next round after bringing a target's health below 50%.
  • Elemental: Elementals ignore negative weather effects.
  • Flying: Flying creatures gain 50% extra speed while above 50% health.
  • Humanoid: Humanoids recover 4% of their maximum health if they dealt damage this round.
  • Magic: Magic pets cannot be dealt more than 35% of their maximum health in one attack.
  • Mehcanical: Mechanical pets come back to life once per battle, returning to 20% health.
  • Undead: Undead pets return to life immortal for one round when killed.

Ability Strengths and Weaknesses

Along with general families, pet abilities are also categorized by type. In most cases, a companion will have spells that correspond with its family type, but some pets will have unique abilities that fall under a different group.


For example, the Azure Whelpling belongs to the Dragonkin family. However, it has Beast, Magic, and Elemental abilities in addition to a Dragonkin attack. Different attacks are strong and weak against different family types. Having a diverse spell selection might increase your chances of being prepared with a strong attack against an opposing team.


The infographic below (created by Dargno) offers another handy visual of strong vs. weak when attacking or defending:

Capturing Wild Pets

Most of the PVE battle pets you face in the wild can be can be captured. To capture a wild pet, you will need to bring its health down to less than 35% and then use the Trap ability once it lights up. Note that using this will take up your turn for the round. In addition, you may only capture one companion on a team of wild pets, so choose wisely!

CAUTION: If your goal is to collect a wild pet, be careful not to kill it! Remember, your objective is to drop it below 35% health. So avoid using any strong attacks against the wild pet when it drops below 50%.

Not all the pets that join a wild pet's team will be capturable. However the majority of them can be trapped. The best way to determine whether or not a pet can be caught is by checking for it in the Pet Journal. If the pet isn't listed, it likely can't be captured.

If at first you don't succeed...

There is always a chance that your trap will fail. The good news is that the chance of failure drops with each additional attempt. In some situations, a failed trap might mean you need to bring the wild pet's health down again for it to be eligible for caging.


A Successfully Captured Wild Pet

FYI: Completing certain achievements will reward upgraded traps which will help to increase your chances of a successful capture.

PVP Encounters

Engaging a wild pet in battle will phase you out of the environment, and the wildlife in the immediate area will not be visible to you. This doesn't mean you will be invulnerable during a Pet Battle session, though.


In player vs. player designated zones, you will still be viewable and attackable by players, but you are not left completely defenseless. While engaged in a Pet Battle, any attack from another player will break you out of the battle. You will receive a 3 second damage shield that will absorb 50% of incoming attacks. The same exact wild pet that you were previously battling will respawn after you come out of combat with the other player. However, if you defeated the primary pet in battle prior to leaving the match, the pet and its team will not respawn.


Participating in Pet Battles will not automatically flag you for PVP on a PVE server. Only PVP zones such as Tol Barad or Wintergrasp will flag you for player versus player combat. On PVP servers, everyone is fair game!

Obtaining Your Prize

Your trap may fail a few times before you finally claim your prize, so be persistent and patient… you’ll get there!


Each wild pet you capture will have its own random set of battle stats dependent on its quality and breed. The next section covers pet quality in greater detail and we feature another guide on our site dedicated to breeds and breed IDs.


You’ll also notice that pets of certain levels will "weaken" after being captured.

  • A level 16 to 20 wild pet will lose 1 level when caught.
  • A level 21 to 25 pet will lose 2 levels when caught.

CAUTION: If you are unsuccessful in battle, any wild pet you managed to trap during the fight will be lost.

So remember, in order to receive any trapped pet, you must win the overall battle. If you happen to trap the first opponent on a wild pet team, but lose the match against the second critter, the first pet will be lost and you will have to try again with another wild pet.

Battle Pet Quality

Battle pets can come in four known qualities:

  • [Poor] - gray
  • [Common] - white
  • [Uncommon] - green
  • [Rare] - blue
  • [Epic] - purple
  • [Legendary] - orange

Pets with [epic] and [legendary] qualities are not yet accessible to players (as of Patch 5.1). But Blizzard has stated they fully intend to implement them in the future.

FYI: A few of the highest level Master Tamer NPCs have pets of epic and legendary quality. There are also a few legendary pets that are objectives for the Beasts of Fable daily quest. However, there’s no way for you to capture any of these pets.

These different qualities affect a pet's battle stats. The higher the quality, the better its health, speed and attack values. These values will also scale better as you level your battle pet.

A Battle Pet with Uncommon Quality

Stats can vary even if two pets share the same rarity. For example, one uncommon quality cat might have more health but less power and speed, while a second uncommon quality cat has less health but more power and speed. This is because each of these cats could have different breeds. You can learn more about breeds and breed IDs here.

Using the Stat Calculator

Each battle-ready pet on our site has a "Battle Info" tab in its pet profile. At the top of this tab, you'll find the pet's stat calculator.

Mock UI - WarcraftPets' Stat Calculator

You can adjust the pet's level and rarity, and then cycle through all of its available breeds. (Note that some pets only come in one breed.) Cycling through each breed will tweak the overall stats of the pet.


Curious about the actual formula used to calculate each pet's battle stats? See the Calculating Stats Based on Breed section of our Guide to Pet Breeds.

Wild Pet Quality

The quality of captured wild pets is random. As of patch 5.1, upon entering a battle the Pet Battle UI shows the quality of a wild pet (idicated by a color-coded border around its icon). If you're farming a specific quality, if you forfeit the match your team will incur a small damage penalty (roughly 10%). There is no accurate way to determine a pet's quality prior to the start of a battle.

Non-Wild Pet Quality

Different qualities aren't limited only to wild pets—many rare World drops and special non-wild companions have had their stats boosted. For example, the world-drop dragon whelps (Azure Whelpling, Crimson Whelpling, Dark Whelpling, and Emerald Whelpling) are of [rare] quality. Check your Pet Journal to see the color-coded rarity of your non-wild pets.

Upgrading the Quality of Your Pets

Battle-Stones were introduced in patch 5.1 as a new item that can be used to automatically upgrade your pets directly to [uncommon] quality (via Polished Battle-Stones) or [rare] quality (via Flawless Battle-Stones).


There are two versions of each type of stone; general and family-specific:

  • General Battle-Stones can be used to upgrade any pet to the quality designated by that stone. These are bind-on-use and may be traded to other players.
  • Family-specific Battle-Stones may only be used to upgrade a pet of the corresponding family. These are bind-on-pickup and cannot be traded away.

TIP: Using a Battle-Stone on a pet level 15 or higher will cause the pet to automatically lose 2 levels. Keep this in mind, as you'll want to relevel that pet before you engage in any difficult battles.

Battle-Stones can be found in the Tamer daily reward bag, or randomly awarded to you after defeating a wild pet in battle. There's also a small chance to earn one by defeating a player in a queued PVP match. Defeating a higher level pet increases your chances of getting a stone.


Polished Battle-Stones can be purchased for 1,000 Justice Points. Additionally, the trainers in Stormwind and Orgrimmar will trade one Marked Flawless Battle-Stone in exchange for three of a kind family-specific Flawless Battle-Stone.


Contents

Pet Breeds and Breed IDs

Pet breeds are used to determine the primary stats (HealthHealth, PowerPower, SpeedSpeed) of your battle pets. So if you want to maximize your pets' fighting potential, understanding how breeds and breed IDs work is crucial.


Due to the depth and complexity of pet breeds and their ID system, we've developed this section of our Guide to Battle Pets as a stand-alone guide:

Check it out to learn everything you need to know about breeds!


Contents

Becoming a Master

A new quest will pop up once your first pet reaches level 3. It will send you to either Audrey Burnhep in Stormwind or Varzok in Orgrimmar. These trainers will offer a quest chain to battle specific Pet Tamer NPCs on each continent. Defeating each of these NPCs will reward a nice chunk of experience for your pets, as well a Sack of Pet Supplies (which has the chance to drop the Porcupette companion, among the always-useful pet bandages).


Pet Tamer NPC

There are two parts of the quest chain for each continent. The first part involves defeating numerous Master Pet Tamers, and the second requires you to triumph over the Grand Master Tamer. After you've bested the Grand Master Tamer, dailies from each Tamer will unlock for that continent. All the dailies continue to reward experience for your companions, however only the Grand Master daily quest will reward the Sack of Pet Supplies.


Keep in mind that these quests are optional, and are not necessary to continue leveling and capturing companions. They are also account-wide, so if you complete the quest chain on one character, you will not be able to complete it again on another. However, any progress that you've made will be saved and you can pick up where you left off in the quest chain on another character. The dailies that you've unlocked will also be accessible by all your toons.


For more information on each Pet Tamer and the complete quest chain, take a look at this post in our forums.


Contents

PVP Pet Battles

If capturing wild pets and fighting against NPCs isn't really your thing, then try out Pet Battles PVP-style!


There are two ways you can go up against another player:

  1. Through the Pet Battles queue.
  2. By challenging a player to a Pet Battles duel.

The Pet Battles queued match is the way to go if you’re interested in leveling your pets—winning a queued match will earn your surviving companions experience, whereas winning a Pet Battles duel will not.


To battle against a randomly chosen player and their team of companions, simply hit the Find Battle button in your Pet Journal. The queuing system will attempt to match your team up with an opponent's team of similar level.


PVP Pet Battle

Much like an encounter with a wild pet team, PVP Pet Battles are turn-based. However, unlike the PVE version, the PVP combat system is timed and any ability for each round must be chosen within that time limit otherwise it will assume you have passed a turn. A time penalty is applied if you take more than 15 seconds to choose an action, resulting in progressively shorter round timers for you.


Additionally, during a queued Pet Battle you will not be able to speak with your opponent or see their name, realm, or guild. You won't be able to capture any of their companions either. But let's be honest, the main focus is the battle between pets — may the best tamer win!


Contents

Organizing Your Pet Collection

With over 250 wild pets to find and capture, it's not unlikely that your collection will soon feel bloated and cluttered. There are a few ways to organize your collection, but there are also some restrictions to keep in mind.

  • You can only have 3 of any one pet (and only 1 of certain pets). Once you reach this cap, you won't be able to add anymore of that specific pet to your collection until you remove one from the journal.

FYI: If you’re returning to WoW after an extended absence prior to patch 5.0.1, it’s possible that you’ll have more than the maximum 3 of a kind. However, this will be the only time that you’re allowed to surpass this limit. You will have to pare down your collection, eliminating your duplicates, in order to add new pets.

So what can you do to make sure your collection is neat and tidy but falls under these rules? There are two ways to rid your Pet Journal of unwanted duplicates: releasing and caging.

Release Your Extras

The first way to clean house (or barn, in this case) is to release any extra pets. To do this, right-click on a minipet's name in your journal, and select the "Release" option in the menu. Doing so will remove this pet from your collection.


Certain hard to obtain pets and promotional companions will not have the release option unless you've reached the duplicate cap (x3) for that specific pet. This is to help prevent any accidental removal of unique and rare companions.


But before you begin to release your duplicates, check to see if they allow you to cage them instead...

Cage and Trade Your Extras

Caging Your Extra Pets

The second option is to cage a pet. You can accomplish in the same way you release one. After caging a companion, it will appear in your inventory. It will retain its stats and level, and this information will be visible when hovering over the item.


These caged versions can be traded and sold. They would make great gifts too!


Keep in mind that for the time being, wild pets cannot be caged. Blizzard developers have expressed concern involving the trade and sale of wild pets, and until a resolution can be implemented, wild pets can only be released. It's not clear if and when we will be able to cage wild pets.

Pet Battle Strategy and Tips

Here are some general tips and strategies to consider when participating in Pet Battles.

  • Level up more than one team of 3 pets. You can sub out injured companions with other pets of similar level when your Revive Battle Pet spell is on cooldown.
  • Early on, it can be quite advantageous to level a mechanical pet and a beast pet as two of your primary battle pets. You'll run into a ton of beasts and critters at the lower levels, and mechanical is strong against beasts while beasts are strong against critters, allowing you to level more quickly.
  • Some pet battle abilities persist through multiple rounds. These can buff your own pets or debuff your opponent's. Use these abilities first to get the most out of them and pave the way to victory!
  • Remember to switch companions during a battle. If a pet on your active team doesn't participate in the fight, it won't receive any experience.
  • You can earn player experience by Pet Battling. Non-level capped players will earn a small amount of experience when battling wild pets that are within 5 levels of their highest level pet on their active team.
  • Review your Pet Battle combat log after a battle to gain a better idea of what worked each round. You can select the option to view Pet Battle Combat in the chat box settings. Right click on the General tab → Settings → Other tab → Check Pet Battle Combat.

  • Capture as you go. By capturing companions as you progress through pet levels, you'll be adding higher and higher level pets to your collection. This will save you some time since you won't have to start from level 1 with your new additions.
  • Some wild pets are quite rare and have long respawn times. Others have special conditions and will only show up when those conditions are met. Be patient, they will appear eventually!
  • If you're looking to catch a specific wild pet but can't find any in the area, enter battle with another pet native to that zone. The companion that you're seeking might show up as the second or third team member. Defeat the team and capture your prize!
  • Level capped players have a chance to earn Lesser Charms of Good Fortune from successful battles. The opponent must be within 5 levels of their highest level pet on the active team.
  • Pet resilience applies to both PVP and PVE encounters. A pet that has been recently affected by crowd-control (such as a stun), will be granted immunity to further crowd-control for 2 rounds.
  • Be careful when purchasing high level companions from the Auction House or other players. You can only add a pet to your collection if its level is equal to or less than your highest level pet.

10 Cool or Unique Tamable Bosses for Hunter Pets in WoW and How to Get Them

Blizz introduces legendary-quality pets

well, if they do, then they have two options: leave all the old pets and trainers in the world outclassed or retune them. If they’re retuned, then they have two more options: leave every player who doesn’t have legendary pets outclassed, or retune them. If they retune them, then everything’s back how it was before, effectively.

So essentially if they add legendary player pets they either break all the balance they have so far or they wind up with essentially no real change. So why bother?

The only way out of this stalemate that I see would be to add legendary player pets but don’t let them be used against any existing content, or scale them back to “rare” levels. In which case they have to include a lot of new content or why bother? And if they go down that path they’re going to need to put more resources on pets than they have been, which seems improbable given everything else they’re trying to keep going.

So some of the opposition is simply “we don’t see a way blizzard can make that work any better than leaving it alone, and probably not even as well.”
