PAGE UPDATE - BY ARANESH
Today I have a small update on the current development of wow-petguide.com.

Displaying strategies is certainly the key aspect of the page. Yet all new features of the last year were accessories to that. Cool ones, like the collection viewer, but not hitting the core element that brings battlers to visit Xu-Fu on a daily basis.

That is changing with the next update, because I am working on one of the - in my opinion - coolest features for Xu-Fu so far: a complete revamp of the Battle Table.

Those tables were the very first thing I created, almost three years ago. Over time, more and more features were added and it became clunky, slow, and hard to adapt. Time to change that.
Here are the key features that will go in:

  • Required breeds! Finally!
  • Automated substitute finder. No more "Any Moth" nonsense. The new table will check for every pet what other pets fulfill the requirements. Conveniently displayed for you to scroll through.
  • Looking for a fast strategy, or one to level with, or a very reliable one? Tags show the way!
  • A rating and favorite system
  • Plus a number of quality-of-life features


There's still plenty to do but as of now you can test the whole thing! :-)
In your account settings activate beta features and you will see the new battle table everywhere.
A small disclaimer though: not all features are fully working, yet!

Nevertheless, if you have any ideas, questions or suggestions, I'm eager to hear them! Please join Xu-Fu's Discord channel and discuss it with me and the team: https://discord.gg/z4dxYUq

Agree Tie may be next to wowhead the most helpful site that doesn't try to drain you $$ (Zygor cough cough}. I've been here just a couple days and with the awesome Magpie link I was able to finally get the 400 pet achievement. Seeing they have An Awfully Big Adventure guide I just created the Elekk Plushi so am now after Trunks. Been a bit of a grind leveling up required pets but renewed the game for me.

Really enjoying your content, hidden gem site. For the all the hard work you do a paypal donation link would probably get a lot of hits.

Hey Moc :-)
Thanks for stopping by and for your praise! There is one on the start page, but rather hidden. I don't need to monetize the page so I try to keep it minimal and unobtrusive.

I read your profile info, thanks again for all the kind words! If you ever have a cool idea what could still be done with the page, let me know. I'm always open for suggestions!

Funny I'm so tech backwards to the point the home page is the one link I missed and do understand your thinking on monetizing, your priorities are certainly in order.

At the moment I'm so overwhelmed with all the new gadgets available but will post any thoughts I may find as a possible contribution in the future.

I listed this site in my bookmark folder named Cool Beans!

An export utility addon to complement PetTracker that will show the strategy while in the fight would be awesome
