Argus is almost here!

WOW NEWS - BY ARANESH
Yesterdays announcement at Gamescom in Cologne came as a surprise. Patch 7.3 and with it the new Argus zones is going live next week already, on 29/30th of August!

Well, I can say without a doubt that Illidan was right this time with his favorite quote: Xu-Fu certainly is not fully prepared, yet!

Nevertheless, as of now you can access the pet battle areas for Argus and of course also for Environeer Bert.

A word of warning, the Family Fighter achievement is very tough! It is a real challenge this time, harder than Family Familiar, and some of the strategies we came up with so far require very specific pets or breeds!
Not all of them are done either (only about half of them), so any help in filling the blanks is highly appreciated :-)

At this point I want to give a special thanks to Lazey!
He created many of the 7.3 strategies, including the one for Bert, and cracked some of the hardest nuts. Without him, the 7.3 preparations wouldn't even be halfway as far as they are now. Thank you!

If you use tdBattlePetScript I would advise against updating to 703001.01. There's a bug that was introduced that causes at least one conditional to not be checked, The safe route is to comment out the uses of PlaySound in version 702001.05.

Instructions to do so are here:

The folders are:

While it is very nice of you guys to have strategies with easy to get pets, wouldn't it also beneficial to create strategies with somewhat rarer pets, just for people who have them and want to dust them off for a change :D

It would be, absolutely :-) It wasn't the initial goal of the page, but I'm working towards a much broader variety of strategies.

No wonder they're leaving the pets up at all times, if they're that challenging.
Oh boy and with Squirt not being up on US this bonus event ;_;
Well, onwards to the October event. Hope I got the pets/breeds to handle a few right now.

Some of them are really easy, but the majority of the family combos are tough and some are really, really difficult. Like - Celestial Tournament at release difficult. Perhaps even some of the new pets from Argus will be required to finish it, we will see!

Oh boy, that's a fun spectrum. Easy to CT Release, haha.
Well, I'm checking my list with the one on the Argus page. Things are looking good and thankfully I have about 2500 charms.

I second that! It will help alot in checking which pets we still need to level up

I'm afraid not. The Ready-Checker is rather old code and cannot check for breeds. Updating it to do so I won't manage time-wise, sorry :/
And without breeds I really don't want to add the Family Fighter strategies. It would be very misleading because a lot of those strategies we have right now require specific breeds.
I don't want people to use the Ready-Checker, gather 10-15 pets, level them to max-level and then notice whoops, wrong breed!

Hope you understand :-)

Would it be possible to make another column in your list though where you write if any special breed is needed?

It's sadly not as simple as that. Adding a column sure, but it would need to be filled with the data from each strategy, which currently is only in text form written in the instructions. I'd have to manually move that over to a different format, which can then be used by this table to fill the additional column.
It's quite some effort, and I'd prefer to get the strategies up asap and then work on a proper new way of displaying all this info.
