03/18/2017 - Wailing Critters and more

Patch 7.2 is closing in! You can now download it in the background downloader and that means it will most likely arrive within a week or two.

There are many new things coming with this major update patch. I highly recommend checking out a summary from one of the big WoW news pages.
In terms of pet battles, a good number of new pets are coming, but also new world quest tamers and a whole new pet battle dungeon.

As promised, Xu-Fu got you covered :-)
Below is an overview and links to the respective guides:

Pet Battle Dungeon "Wailing Critters"


New World Quests


My new features allowing you to check your pet collection against the required pets here is not fully done, yet. But the list of recommended pets for the dungeon is not very long anyway. You will need 2 random Beasts on 25, then five more random level 25 pets, and the ones below:

03/14/2017 - Bonjour!

Thanks to the immense efforts of Ashtor - who can be seen in the picture here - Xu-Fu is now also available in French!

Thank you very much for the time you spent on the translation! Un grand merci!



02/26/2017 - Development Status

At the beginning of 2017 I promised many features to come to Xu-Fu, and today I want to give a little status update.

But before that, I want to apologize. Many suggestions have been sent in for old and new fights alike, and while my team is working on these, only a fraction of them have been tested and/or added to the page.
My personal situation only allows me a limited amount of time and I balance that between 7.2 preparation and working on the new features.

With that being said, what's next? Many of the features I'm building are interlinked and they rely on each other. They will change the page in it's foundation, and at this point I want to say it will be a "Xu-Fu 2.0" :-)

On to some details! User login and "Login with Battle.net" are done! That was a huge effort for me, and while it's still hidden, it's all done and functioning. Yay!
You can see a preview of the login window in the screenshot :-)
I focused on making this system extremely easy to use. For Battle.net login, you will need exactly 2 clicks and you are logged in.

Now I'm working on the profile page, a rework of the comment system, and then an integration of the armory to connect your pet collection. At that point it should be ready to be released :)

The final step is then reworking the strategy pages so that it always shows you the the strategies you actually do have the pets for! And instead of suggesting a strategy, you will be able to simply upload your own.

That's it for now, I hope to have some more news soon!




02/12/2017 - Wailing Critters Guides

Hi!
The Wailing Critters pet battle dungeon is still the biggest pet addition coming in 7.2
I am preparing my personal guide for the challenge mode, but due to the nature of it I am looking for people interested in providing their own guide.

Why? Well, the pet dungeon is a different kind of challenge. You can't heal or revive pets, okay, but the fights are also not extremely hard like in the Celestial Tournament. There is a huge variety of pets that can beat the individual enemies, but there's just many of them! 11 Individual fights to be exact (in comparison, Celestial Tournament has 7).

The amount of pet variations you can bring is immense and it comes down to finding a good set of combinations. As said I will provide my own, but I believe it better to provide a number of different choices.

So, how do you feel about a different challenge? Just install the PTR client and create a set of strategies for the dungeon, send it to me and I'm happy to add it here!



02/06/2017 - Falcosaur Team Rumbles

Many have asked me to add strategies for the Team Rumble quests for your trusty Falcosaur pets, and I've pushed it back for some time. But not any longer!

We are now adding strategies one by one for each of the Falcosaur quests:

Bloodgazer Team Rumble - Defeat 3 Pet Battle World Quests with your Bloodgazer Hatchling and 2 Beast pets.
Sharptalon Team Rumble - Defeat 3 Pet Battle World Quests with your Sharptalon Hatchling and 2 Magic pets.
Direbeak Team Rumble - Defeat 3 Pet Battle World Quests with your Direbeak Hatchling and 2 Humanoid pets.
Snowfeather Team Rumble - Defeat 3 Pet Battle World Quests with your Snowfeather Hatchling and 2 Undead pets.

They will not get their own category, that would be too confusing. Instead, they will be added as new alternatives for each World Quest.

And it's all made possible thanks to a new team member: Mia! She started working on these strategies today and will add many more over time. Great to have you on board :-)
