Had terrible luck and missed most abilities to his 25% dodge. Still cleaned up with Quills as my 1st ability for 3rd pet

Thanks! Good job writing the script :)

With German language set, the overview in the top line is not working properly. Just the average level is displayed. If you still need help with German translations, let me know.

Not sure what went wrong for Drowsy above - this TD Script worked fine for me in 8.3. Thanks, Shenk!

Adding my voice to the chorus of praise - works great in 8.3, TDScript also went off without a hitch. Thanks!
Very RNG as stated, I kept up Ancient Blessing and Emerald Dream as soon as they were off cooldown, Here was my strat: - - Chrominus' Howl, Surge of Power - Bring in Proto - Breath - Ancient Blessing - Emerald Dream, then fill in with Breath until each healing is off CD and use those immediately. Then I continued on with the strat for Faerie Dragon. It was a bit slow, but worked.
Swapping out Murgle for Terky removes the need for a speed restriction: - - Murgle: - - 1 -- Dazzling Dance - 2 -- Lucky Dance - 3 -- Swap to Ore Eater - 4 -- Demolish until Foof dies. - - Stumpers comes in - - One round of Lucky Dance: - 1 -- Demolish - 2 -- Shell Armor - 3+ -- Acid Touch until Stumpers dies - - No Lucky Dance: - 1 -- Swap to Murgle - 2 -- Dazzling Dance - 3 -- Lucky Dance - 4 -- Swap to Ore Eater - - Prio 1 -- Demolish until Lucky Dance is gone - ...

I use an automatic key presser and I noticed my Nexus Whelpling sometimes KILLING "Marshmellow" or it would change back to my Zepplin but leave the Whelping alive. (For some reason you do not get leveling points if any 25's are left alive. I have added these 2 lines at the very end of the script, even though it looks like the writer already thought it was covered. Enter these 2 lines right above the last line "ability(#1) - - [self.aura(Cyclone:189).exists] - ... [continue reading]
Once Lil' Sizzle died I swapped to my Kun-Lai Runt: - - Frost Shock - Thrash - Deep Freeze - Frost Shock -- Hits Stumpers on the Stun Swap - - Use Thrash when faster than Stumpers, and use Frost Shock to get faster than Stumpers. - - Once Stumpers dies, use Frost Shock, Deep Freeze, & Thrash to finish off Foof.
Shadowlands Beta: - - This strategy does not experience any RNG it wouldn't on live servers. I'm flagging it as good to go for Shadowlands. :)

With a big thanks to Nyari for writing them and Shenk for translating, today we have two new guides up on Xu-Fu:

Getting Started on Pet Battling - detailing the best ways to get your first pet to level 25
Recommended Addons - a list and quick explanation of the most widely used pet battle addons

Both are excellent resources and will hopefully help many fresh battlers find their way into the ins and outs of the pet battling world.

Hello, everyone!

As you all know, the Shadowlands Beta is in full swing since getting the character copies this past week. With those copies, beta testers also gained access to some of their roster, which means they can now test the pet battle changes!

Here's what Xu-Fu's staff will be doing in the coming weeks to help soften the blow to how many strats will be effected by said changes:


1. Shadowlands Tag



A Shadowlands tag has been added to the site, and will be used in TWO phases:

Phase One -- Beta: During the beta, staff will be testing as many strategies as they can. If you see a Shadowlands tag on a strategy before the changes go to live servers, this means the strategy has been tested by a staff member and it will see NO IMPACT from the Shadowlands changes.

Phase Two -- Live: Once these changes go to live servers, ALL strategies impacted will receive the Shadowlands tag.

Phase Two Part Two -- Live: If a strategy received a Shadowlands tag before the changes are live and will not be impacted, once Shadowlands does go live those tags will be removed.


2. Suggestions for Changes



If a strat needs some kind of change to work once the Shadowlands changes go into effect, and a staff member was able to test the strat, you'll likely see a comment from us on our experience, and what we changed to help make the strat usable again.

Please keep in mind: there are only so many of us here, and thousands of strategies that will be impacted. We will not be able to get to them all before the changes go live, but we'll do our best to prioritize those we feel will have the highest impact first, like dungeons.


3. What You Can Do



If you have beta access, we encourage strategy creators to test their strategies. Some of the adjustments can be made pre-Shadowlands changes, and it won't impact the strat on current live servers. Other adjustments will need to wait for the Shadowlands changes to go live to work properly.

Once you've tested, let us know in the info section of your strategy by putting something like: Shadowlands tested. This way, staff can move on to test other strats.



That's all for now! We're doing our best to make this transition as smooth as possible, and we thank you all for your patience and understanding as we work through these changes.

Happy battling!

Time for another bigger update here!

Among the most beloved features of Xu-Fu's were the Legion Ready-Checker and the Celestial Tournament Planner. Both sadly had to go away when we added user created strategies and support for breeds.
Not anymore! Time to bring those features back, and add some things on top :D

Happy to announce the return of Ready-Check Tables!



You'll find them on every section of Xu-Fu, including family achievements, dungeons, and - of course - the Celestial Tournament. They offer different options depending on where you are, check it out!

I highly recommend using them with an account and after importing your collection. The tool will then be able to pick the most suited strategies for you - and will make sure to use pets only once when going through hardmode dungeons.

And the cherry on top, the crown jewel of convenience: Rematch Mass Export! Here's a quick vid of how that works:

From Kaivax
Hello pet battlers!

In Shadowlands, there are some core changes to Pet Battles, and while there are many pet battle updates now available for testing, we have quite a bit more coming.

First, we have no plans to make a new pet charm currency this expansion. Polished Pet Charms will remain the standard currency to buy new pets, toys, consumables, and all of the other normally-available vendor purchases.

There are several items that are coming along for testing in this week’s build (and the next few builds) of the Shadowlands Beta:

~~ New content! There will be plenty of new battle pets to capture, trainers to battle, achievements, and pets that will be rewarded from various activities.

~~ New Abilities! With Shadowlands and all of the strong covenant themes, we have some plans for new abilities and mechanics to add to some of the new pets. Some may be small changes to numbers, and other changes may be big and open up new strategies or synergies.

~~ Buffs! The list below of changes made to old abilities are all nerfs to existing things that have become too dominant. We also feel like there’s room to make some cool new ability combos, or redesign something that hasn’t worked so well, or buff things that are rarely used. This can be anything from some new ability mechanics, up to and potentially including redesigning or increasing the power of a species’ passive bonuses if necessary.


Previously-announced changes that are now testable in the Beta:

~~ Black Claw and other flat damage taken increasing abilities.

~~ Hunting Party, Flock, and other similar multi-round abilities.

~~ The Shattered Defenses debuff from abilities such as Hunting Party and Flock.

~~ Twilight Meteorite and other long-cooldown damage-splitting abilities.

~~ The Jar of Smelly Liquid ability.


Let’s break down what actually changed to these, as some of them are complicated.

Flat damage-taken modifiers such as Black Claw now happen **after multipliers such as Shattered Defenses, or pet species strengths/weaknesses. This is a significant change to the value of flat damage abilities. Prior to this change, the value of Black Claw was increased 100% by Shattered Defenses, and if your pet was strong vs the other pet type, it would be increased even further. Flat damage modifiers now happen after all other combat calculations, which wound up being a significant damage output nerf to abilities that hit multiple times, upwards of 25-30% total damage reduction.

Hunting Party and Flock style abilities are significantly changed. First, the Shattered Defenses debuff was reduced in power from 100% to 50%. The goal of this debuff change is mostly to keep the damage of Hunting Party and Flock mostly contained within the damage the ability itself deals. Layering on other Damage over Time effects, or Curse of Doom, or similar delayed-damage sources were all getting a huge benefit from the Shattered Defenses debuff. We think that a 50% damage increase is still strong enough, but less drastic of a damage swing compared to not having Shattered Defenses at all.

The second change we made to these multi-round abilities was to increase the amount of damage they deal to offset some of the changes listed above. Abilities that dealt damage twice per round, such as Hunting Party, had their total damage dealt increased by 25%. Abilities such as Flock that did damage three times per round had their damage increased round-over-round, so to get the maximum damage output, you needed your pet to survive and still be dealing damage on the third round of the ability. Round two of Flock for example, ignoring any debuffs or multipliers, will deal 66% more damage than round one. Round three of Flock will deal 133% more damage than round 1 of Flock. The net result of all of the changes to flat damage modifiers, the Shattered Defenses debuff, and the buffs to Hunting Party or Flock style abilities is that they deal roughly 20% less damage in Shadowlands than they did previously.

Twilight Meteorite and other big damage abilities that split the damage across the team are relatively balanced when fighting multiple opponents, but if you save it until defeating 2/3 of the enemy’s team, the damage output can be devastating, especially when combined with other buffs/debuffs. We reduced the damage on these abilities by 10%, and believe that will make them strong, but less frustrating to play against.

The Jar of Smelly Liquid ability had its cooldown increased one round. This ability has been on our radar of being annoying to play against, and the strength of the ability combined with a speed and damage dealt debuff on the target felt too strong for a cooldown of only one round.

A couple of other changes in Shadowlands:

~~ Murkalot’s Righteous Inspiration ability has been on the forefront of PvP strategies for a while, and is very strong, and unique to only this pet. The current change we have in Shadowlands is that the ability starts on cooldown when the pet battle begins, so you will have to wait 8 rounds to be able to use it against your opponent.

~~ Almost all healing abilities have had a small variance applied to them of +/- 10% when you use it. Healing Wave might say it heals your target for 100, but actually heal for between 90 and 110. This also applied to some healing abilities like Siphon Life, where it should heal for a fixed amount based on damage dealt, but still had a variance applied on it. All healing abilities have been tuned so that having any variation in the healing amount makes sense, and we’ve removed the variance if it did not.

~~ Finally, we’re considering the viability of older pet battle content after these changes. Some of the changes we’re making could make older battles or achievements much too difficult to complete. We really like how it feels to have so much pet battle content accessible to players who are at all points on the pet battle journey, whether they’re just getting started or have hundreds of max-level pets.

In Shadowlands, we still expect pet battlers to be able to complete older content with a current slate of battle pets, so we’re looking forward to your feedback. We’re confident that we can adjust tuning where necessary.

Thank you!


This post goes more in-depth on some of the changes mentioned in November, which can be found here.


My personal experience with the Shattered Defenses / Black Claw changes boils down to these two observations:

1 -- If the strategy experienced any kind of overkill with fight, chances are it'll be just fine. You might need to do one or two more moves to finish the enemy off, or use a third pet if a strat was previously a two-pet strat.

2 -- If the strategy worked by the skin of its teeth, there will likely be issues. It'll either break the strat, or it'll need some work to get it in-line with the new changes. The biggest concern at the moment will be some of the Tanaan Jungle, Argus, & BRD fights.


But what say you, pet community? Have you had a chance to test the changes? How do you feel about them, even if you haven't?

The new ad banners on this site are breaking the formatting badly - can barely read the page because all of the content is overlayed on itself.

I don't care if you have ads, but the formatting sucks! The side banners overlay the content!

Hey! Sorry for the trouble, it's a bug. It was never intended to show these ads.
They controlled by a company and I told them that I dont want these takeover ads. I already informed them and they promised to fix it asap.

Can someone recommend an AddOn to track the enemy team's abilities and cooldowns?
I've been using PetTracker up until this point, but sadly it's been broken for a long time.
I looked everywhere and can't seem to find anything which does the same. It's really weird that such a basic thing is not in the game by default.

There is a discrepancy between the Squirt dates on the front page and the powerleveling guide page; the latter shows the Squirt date occurring one day later than the front page Squirt date. Can you please clarify and correct this so we can update our calendars?

Hey! Thanks, I'm looking into this right now. It seems the calculation on the widget here is incorrect. The guide shows the correct dates, though. I'll try to fix that now :)

Seems like the dates are one day early each time for the "Next Squirt Day" on homepage, it's one day off from the guide, not sure why, and has been one day early for the last one and the one starting tomorrow for some reason.

Best guess is, the programming script didn't account for the extra day in a leap year.

I think the XP tables (the tooltip XP tables on the strats) need an update. I noticed this already a while ago on another occasion, and currently I’m leveling with Sir Galveston (pet Battles Bonus Event week), and I can definitely level a level-1 pet to 25 in two goes with just the Safari Hat on.

According to your table I would have to add a Lesser Pet Trait in order to accomplish in two turns.

With only Safari Hat it goes 1 --> 17 and then 17 --> 25. Not, as suggested, 17 --> 24.

As said, I think this is not only a Pet-Battle-Week-thingy, the tables seem to be slightly off in general.

PS: Why does the “edited” in posts appear with uninterpreted formatting tags? Or is it just my browser? (edited)

Hey!

Been a while since I tinkered with those tables ^^ Perhaps there's some other effect stacking onto it? I have to dig into it. Thanks for flagging it!
I'm currently working on another feature that I want to get out first but I've logged it as a bug:

https://trello.com/c/aDc8S9Zt/64-pet-xp-calculation-in-strategies-is-incorrect

Oh and... the reformatting of the formatting tags here is also a bug :-(

I can’t think of any other stacking effects I could have had. (Unless Black Iron Dwarfs have a hidden pet XP bonus racial ;) Hey, that would be a great racial!) Are there any others besides the buffs listed in your XP tables?

Will double-check today or tomorrow for any buffs.

Here some results from a Draenor round-trip today (all with Sign of the Critter and Safari Hat):

[The “XP” are the gained experience points according to the log.]

Ashley: 1 --> 19 with 13485 XP; table is correct
Vesharr: 1 --> 17 with 11238 XP; table is correct
Teralune: 17 --> 25 with 12647 XP; table says: 17 --> 24 with 13098 XP
Tarr the Terrible: 17 --> 25 with 12647 XP; table says: 17 --> 24 with 13098 XP
Gargra: 13 --> 23 with 14493 XP; table is correct
Cymre Brightblade: 1 --> 17 with 11238 XP; table is correct

Summary:

Your tables are correct for the low-level (1; Ashley, Vesharr, Cymre) and mid-level (13; Gargra) range. But in the high-mid range (17; Teralune and Tarr) it seems Blizz has lowered the XP requirements (i.e., you gain more levels with less XP).

This would also be coherent with what I’ve seen yesterday with the Sir Galveston grind.

BTW: This was on different toon than yesterday; so, unfortunately, no Dark Iron Dwarf bonus racial ;-)

Tiffany Nelson (Hat and Battle Week):

17 --> 25 with 12647; table says: 17 --> 24 with 13098

I stop tracking here, since it just seems to confirm the Draenor results.

Let me know if you want more raw data.

Sorry if this is a dumb question but is it possible for me to save all my td scripts and rematch teams and copy and paste them on another computer? I play on a PC but I also have a laptop that I play on sometimes and I'd like to be able to use my pet battle stuff on the laptop as well, in addition to just backing up all this info. Is there an easy way to sync this up with the laptop or at least copy and paste the files? Thanks!

Just copy the preference files of the add-ons.

Rematch: Rematch.lua
TDBattleScript: tdBattlePetScript.lua

The file path (on a Mac) is like this:

/Applications/World of Warcraft/_retail_/WTF/Account/428082657#1/SavedVariables/Rematch.lua

where the account number will be a different one for you, obviously.
Path structure should be similar on Windows.

I found the lua files and copied the rematch file into the laptop folder. The teams are all there when I launch the game! I forgot to save the td scripts lua file to my drop box because I'm a herp derp but I will get to that next. Thank you so much!

The TD Scripts prefs file should be in the same folder as the Rematch one (“SavedVariables”, path see above) — unless you explicitly and manually deleted it, or deleted it via Twitch Client. (Even if you never synced it to your DropBox folder, I want to say.)

What I would do in any case, is a regular and automated backup of the whole WTF folder. Ideally this is a versioned backup, so that you can go back if something got messed up.

From your profile. I see that you are a new battler, and hav just captured some level 10 pets. Good start!

What would you like to know?

You should do the quests for the Tamers in Kalimdor (for Horde) or Eastern Kingdoms (for Alliance) and basically keep battling and beating the tamers as soon as you can.

This site doesn't explain the low-level tamers, because they are not hard enough. If you are having problems with one, your best bet is to get an extra level or two with your pets and try again, or capture some new pets that are good against that Tamer's pets.

I'm having an issue logging in on the browser I normally use (Firefox, I'm using Edge to make this post). When I try to log in with my Battlenet ID on Firefox, for some reason it logs me in on my second account and not my main account. I don't get any options as to which account to choose. I'm logged in on the proper account on blizzard.net, the launcher is logged on the proper account, but this page insists on using that other account to log in, and creates a new account. Obviously, this is a problem because all my pets are on this one (the other one is just for RAF). I've deleted the cookies, cleared the cache, quit Firefox and restarted it. I've deleted that new account that gets created, and tried logging in again and it just recreates that account with that battlenet id. I'm at my wits end trying to get logged in on the proper browser. Any ideas? (I can also log in to this account with Firefox on my Mac with no problem.)

Hey!

That's a really, really odd one. Usually when that happens, you are logged into the other Battle.net account *on your browser* (the battle.net app has nothing to do with this).
Just as an explanation, when you hit that "Login with Battle.net" button, Xu-Fu redirects you in the background to battle.net where it checks for authorization. If there is none, it will prompt you (you did this at the very beginning, first time you logged into Xu-Fu's). And if there is already an authorization it throws you right back to Xu-Fu letting the page know which battle.net ID it is. So whichever account is logged in on battle.net, that one will be sent back to Xu-Fu.

If you go to battle.net on Firefox and log out then into the correct account, you say this still happens?
Have you perhaps tried clearing the battle.net cookies as well?

If that doesn't work, there's one more thing you could try: go to your account security settings on Battle.net and check the connected apps on both your accounts. You'll find Xu-Fu in there. Just delete the connection both times and then log out of the battle.net website.
Then go back here and click the button. It will send you to battle.net and ask you to log in - you can then log in with the *correct* bnet account and this should bring you back here.

Sorry for this being so troublesome for you. I hope it will be solved with that but do let me know if you keep having issues!

For some reason, none of the new 8.3 strategies are loading into Rematch with a target. Thus, they don't autoload when interacting with the target.

Just thought I'd introduce those who are unaware to the root meaning of the word that is going to hit this site when Shadowlands launches.

There are so many changes coming that a massive amount of strategies are going to need to be changed. I would like to offer the - at least temporary - solution (I'm not a mod/admin so I don't know if it has already been put forward) of adding tags back to strategies, specifically a tag to denote whether or not the strategy is viable in Shadowlands content (bearing in mind; some people may not have purchased the xpac). (edited)

Hey!
Yeah, we're aware. A tag for Shadowlands already exists and once we know more details about the exact changes coming and what will be affected, we will tag all strategies affected by it. Might be a big clean-up process that will happen with Shadowlands.

By the way, there will also be a Patch 8.3. tag appearing soon on about 200 strategies due to the changes in some weather effects.
