Family Familiar

The achievement Family Familiar is the largest and toughest addition to the pet battling world in a long time. It might even beat the Celestial Tournament in required effort!
To complete it you need to earn 10 individual achievements, each asking you to defeat 12 tamers in the Broken Isles with only pets from one specific pet family.

But how hard can it be? Well, you're in for quite a ride. Every day there is only three active pet quests out of a total of 37 different ones.
So first off, one of the tamers in question has to be active.
Then you need to beat him or her with a certain pet family only, but you cannot repeat the fight with the same character!.
This means you will have to wait for every tamer to be up 10 times! And on top of it all, some of the tamers are extremely hard - if not impossible - to beat with certain families. Looking at you there, Flummox!

Unless you go at it with multiple characters, it will most likely take several months before you can finish this particular achievement.
But once you do, you will get your very own tiny, corrupted, adorable Treant :-)

Important Update as of 10/26/2016: With Patch 7.1 it is no longer possible to fight these trainers repeatedly using a level 110 character without world quests.

As usual, below table will list all pets required to use the main strategies listed here. Due to the nature of the achievement, the list is quite long this time.
Best sort by family to get a better overview over each families difficulty level.

Having alts who also have world quests open can make these achievements go much faster. Especially if there's more than one trainer up that week. While the achievements and such are account wide, the world quests are not.

Can you please update this guide to NOT use Minfernal? It is simply unreasonable to expect someone to have this pet, unless you have been extremely lucky. I have spent months at the location, logging in from time to time, and all I see are other players mindlessly flying around. And I have a LOW population server group, so I can't imagine the high population servers.

Thanks! :) Minfernal is only used against Flummox. You can easily do this achievement without that particular fight.

Would it be possible for you to create strategies for these trainers that's not associated with the family familiar achievements? Some trainers I have defeated with all pet families so I'd like to go back with the best possible team that is easy to beat each trainer and also to save these teams in rematch for future use. I could pick one of the strategies listed for each trainer (human, beast, or magic, etc.) but having a strategy that would easily counter each trainers pets would be awesome. Also, great work on the site! Keep up the good work!

Sure! That is already there :D
There is a separate section for the World Quests where you will find "normal" teams, where possible with the option of a leveling pet: https://wow-petguide.com/index.php?m=LegionWQ

AaronM wrote on 02/03/2017

I certainly do know about the Legion World Quests section but what I am talking about are simple strategies for the Family Familiar trainers not all the other trainers in the World Quests section of this site. They are obviously separated into 2 sections and they should be, however, once you beat a family familiar trainer, in this section, with all pet families and you want to go back and defeat him/her again for the quest awards having a specific team that can counter the trainers pets, instead of using a specific family of pets (Human, Magic, Dragonkin, etc) , would be awesome to have. Perhaps I could be overthinking this a bit and maybe there is a family team that would be best suited to beat each one of these trainers, however, having a default team to counter each of these traniners pets would be great to have. Thus, why I am posting this under the Family Familiar section and not the World Quests section. Thank you for your reply. Sorry if I'm not explaining this well. :)

Mh... I don't really get it. In the World Quest section, all Family Familiar tamers are present as well. They are the ones with a green paw at their names. If you don't need them for Family Familiar, that section at the World Quests should give you fast strategies with the option of a level pet (where possible), no matter the families.
Am I missing something? Sorry if I'm overlooking something completely :S

I guess what the OP means is creating an alternative way of sorting the encounters. Now, they're sorted by pet types, but there would be another "tree" aswell that allows to start from choosing a specific tamer first (so you can ingame stand next to a tamer with his or her page prepared, browse your achievements and then decide which family do you decide to play this day).
I have no particular opinion, just trying to explain that – though I think that isn't something that Xu-Fu 2.0 won't manage ^^

Looks like Flummox was fixed; Just took him (her? it?) out with your suggested Beast team, and got Flummox credit on the Best of Beasts achieve. Now to do that with the rest of my 110s :D
