One month to go for Battle for Azeroth, and this week the pre-patch will hit already! With so many changes coming in that patch, a blog entry about it is long overdue. - - 1. Use your pet charms today! - Pet Charms as we know it will lose in their value immensely. With the ... continue reading

Another update already! - This one went much smoother than I expected, and I'm super happy about it. It is feature 2 of 3 core things I need to complete before Battle for Azeroth hits the shelves. That gives me another 6 weeks from now to finish up and have Xu-Fu ready for ... continue reading

To the Team here:
First I want to thank you for the continued development and implementation of the tools you have created for everyone here. I love coming back to see all the wonderful shiny implementations you are doing, and the fact that people can log in, vote and upscale various posts and strategies. Seeing buttons like "RNG" and "Breed" are such a wonderful addition. And frankly because I am a 'casual' gamer, this site has saved me HOURS of trying out my (failed) strategies and use other people's Pet Loving strats. It has made me somewhat enjoy the new twists that Blizzard has created with various pet battles, and definitely enhances my gaming experience as a avid pet collector.
Thank you for ALL your hard work.
Thank you for sharing the Pet Love.

Many thanks for all the work you've put into this site, Aranesh! I have had countless hours of fun doing pet battles because of the strategies shared here. I doubt I could have finished the Celestial Tournament rounds without help from here!

Here's to a lot more fun in BfA, and don't forget to show our support by clicking on the Donate button! (Btw, Aranesh, the redirect from Paypal after donating landed in a page not found.)

Everything is great, but I wanted to comment on one quick issue that has come up with your new updates to pet battle pages. Before, you could scroll over the alternative teams for a fight and see any notes. Now you cannot, which is a pain for the Kura/Erris fight in the pet menagerie. I now have to click through each alternative until I find the one for the right team. While I appreciate that it shows you what pets are used in the alternative strategies without having to click through them, it would be nice to be able to see the notes about them without having to click on the alternative.

Other than that, your site is great and I really appreciate all the hard work you put into it. Thank you for what you do on here!

I think the whole Kura/Erris section needs an overhaul, tbh. It's very dated now and doesn't fit with the new enhanced features.

I just joined today to be able to say Thank You Very Much for your site and efforts of those who contributed strategies and comments. I ignored pet battling since its inception but Legion finally got me curious. With this site, I managed to complete Family Familiar! I feel so fortunate to have found so much information in the easiest to use appearance. Gratitude to all who helped.

I wanted to say thank you to Aranesh, the development team, and all the kind contributors at Xu Fu for these amazing strategies. Pet battling became so complicated and frustrating solo. There is no way I could have accomplished what I did without your efforts.

It saddens me that people such as yourselves, who receive no money for your work, have done more for my success in WoW pet ventures than the Blizzard company itself. Blizzard takes in $12-15 US each month, and has received hundreds of dollars from me over the years. Yet after years of financial and personal commitment to their products, Blizzard cares nothing about my success in their world, particularly when it comes to pet battles and pet collections. Low drop rates, unspoken pet spawning times, and useless customer service help ticket responses pushed me away from the game. If Blizzard had even 20% of the passion for WoW fans that Xu Fu staff demonstrates, I might have stayed. They do not, and I doubt they ever will. As a result of this, I am leaving WoW with no plans to return.

Xu Fu was one of the pest parts of my WoW journey. You all listened to the community, took feedback under advisement, and constantly sought to improve both the user interface and site content. You linked with other sites and we're not threatened by criticism. Cheers to you, Aranesh, and all the other staff. All the best to you in your current and future ventures. Thank you.

Hey Gatekus,

I was very moved by your words, and it took me a while to find the right words. I hope I found them now: Thank you. Thank you for your immense praise towards me and all Xu-Fu contributors. You are right, passion for WoW and all its pets is the driving force behind this page.
Your words for Blizzard are quite harsh, and I do not intend to defend them, that's not my place and not my task ^^ I met a number of their employees over time, and for those individuals, I can vouch that their passion for this game is at least equal to my own.
If that were not the case, most likely I would not invest my own passion into this project myself.

Be that how it may, I am glad to have been part of the positive side for you, and wish you also all the best for yourself!

Great site!

Minor addition suggestion though: Since the site has my pet collection info AND needed pets/levels for strategies, I'd love if it suggested which pets I should level, increase quality of and/or obtain next based on which is used the most in strategies.

Like just from my browsing, it seems the recommended pet for me to obtain would be the Zandalari Anklebiter.

That will come. Not too soon I'm afraid. The collection import is quite young and was the last big feature I added. Next up the battle tables will use it as well and show you which strategy you have the pets for and which not. Your suggestion will come afterwards :-)

This site used to be mobile friendly... now its just no menu or any navigation on the top anymore. So, I'll have to alt+tab out to look at guides for now.

Hey Kuuro!
The page was never designed for mobile :S Just recently I edited the menu to be more mobile friendly. You should see a "Menu" button that expands into the actual menu when tapping on it.
Can you please tell me what device you are using?

I just recently stumbled upon this site and I'm legitimately miserable that I didn't know about it sooner. I normally just default to WoWhead, but not anymore! I love this site so much. It's so crisp and clean and well put together. There's so much love put into this site it really makes me happy! Thank you to everyone who put so much into it. I hope I have the funds to donate one day to help support it. You guys deserve all that and more!
- Sincerely; a super appreciative user :P

I really like the upvote option for posts. It should save a lot of, "Me, too" and "You're right" posts (yep, I'm as guilty as anyone). I'm wondering however, if you've considered offering the option to upvote the Strategy Alternatives themselves. Most of the strategies have worked wonderfully for me, and I'd like to share that with other site users without cluttering up things with a "worked well" post. Now, I'm sure that you don't need any more projects on your plate, but it's something that popped into my mind and thought I'd throw it out there. Loving the new site more each day. Thanks again for all of your hard work.

Thank you very much :-)

In fact, votes for the individual strategies are already on the roadmap :D
There's a few smaller things I want to get done before that. The next update (pretty soon, I'm more than halfway done with that) will add the legion ready checker functionality to all pages. When you are logged in and go to any section, the tables there will automatically check against your collection and tell you what pets you're missing.
After that I will do some really smaller stuff, but then I want to rework the battle tables to include more info. Mainly what breeds are required, what pets the enemy has, upvote option (^^) and some more stuff.

Will take some time, but we're getting there :-)
