Family Battler
Keeping in style with previous achievements, patch 8.1 brings a new family challenge: Family Battler

The achievement is made out of 10 sub-achievements, each asking you to complete 15 Battle for Azeroth world quests with pets from a specific family only.
Since there are more than 15 world quests possible, you can pick and choose which ones to finish with each family.

Also, at this time, tamers that have their world quest available can be fought repeatedly, which makes the achievement even easier to complete, as you can go through each family one after the next without having to wait for the world quest to be up another day.

Am I missing something? I have Family Brawler not Battler and it asks you to win 10 pvp battles in each family.

As said above, it's a feature of patch 8.1, which will arrive on December 11-12th.

The Non-Trainer fights (Unbreakable, This Little Piggy, Jammer, Crawg, and Mind Controlling Plants) should be removed from this page, much like they were in Legion. They are not required for the achievement.

That makes me a little sad, especially since I think I finally found a critter strat that worked for Bloodtusk, heh.

Are we going to have a ready-checker for this one like you made for the Legion equivalent?

Unfortunately I won't have the time to create that.

I wasn't here in Legion when they added family-based achievements, but just to check: they aren't going to be buffing any of the tamer's pets, are they? Like changing them from 'rare' to 'epic'?

No. Blizzard have said they will not be boosting any pets in any way. 25 will remain the level cap and Rare will remain the highest grade for companion pets. No npc pets currently in-game will change.

Phew. I've been doing some strats for the new Family Battler, and wanted to make sure I wasn't going to have to delete them because I jumped the gun. Thank you!

Well, if they aren't changing anything about the pets/trainers, it's simple enough to adapt strats we've already done, which is what I was doing at first. I also made sure I wasn't encroaching on anyone else's strats when I made the new ones.

Think it'd be pretty neat if a secondary achievement was added, maybe rewarding an ultimate stone or two for beating all 19 tamers with each family. I mean, we're going to do it anyway, so why not? haha

Even if RNG works with you, is it even theoretically possible to beat Rogue Azerite with Mechs?

Automated Chaos is likely another tough one. Someone will find a way, I'm sure. You might have to get very specific, but there was a strat for every family for Family Familiar and Family Fighter

Can this achievement be started on live servers or must we wait to do these in 8.1

You'll have to wait until 8.1 releases, it's not out yet :-)

I am not able to fight world quest tamers repeatedly. Automated Chaos (Korval Darkbeard) does not interact after completing the world quest first time today.

Please keep in mind these achievements and the option to repeat BfA tamer fights are not yet implemented on live servers. We'll have to wait for the release of patch 8.1. But there are people who "work" on these things on PTR, so XuFu keeping up by preparing 8.1 stuff is a logic step so people can add their teams/strats right now.

I personally doubt they will be repeatable when 8.1 goes live. On the PTR, I think they force the tamers to be repeatable so there is adequate time for testing. Otherwise you might never be able to battle certain tamers enough times simply due to bad world quest RNG. Of course I could be wrong, but usually things are forced to be easily repeatable on PTR so more testing can be done in less time. I would love if they changed them to repeatable, though. So hopefully they do make that change, I just kind of doubt it.

I tend to agree with this. We were able to repeat the Argus battles during Legion, but that's because none of them gave much XP to levelling pets. The majority of BFA battles do give useful XP which means if they can be repeated on the same day, it'd be an unacceptable XP Piñata as far as Blizzard are concerned.

The other option, which wories me a little is that they will be repeatable, but the XP will be reduced to the point there's no reason to repeat.

I don't think it's for the PTR only, they never supported pet battle testers very much. I think they also "promised" to make these achievements easier in the future (before Argus)... so when they think there's too much pet XP... no doubt they'll nerf this first.
