Pandaria's Master Tamers

My home and refuge.
Green pastures, rivers filled with fish, mountains to climb and plenty of critters to chase.

Pandaria is where my heart lies, and also where I have the best opportunities to hone my skills! The pet battle system was introduced with Pandaria which explains why this continent hosts more challenges than any other.

Let us begin with the Pandaria Master Tamers

In the beginning there were... pet trainers. Just like you can find them all over Azeroth. There is one in every zone and they pitch level 25 pets against you. The fights are of varying difficulties, but overall not very hard. After you beat them once, they offer a daily quest each and the reward is a Sack of Pet Supplies, but the main reward is the experience you can gain when bringing a small pet along!

This map gives you an overview of the Master and Spirit Tamers locations and suggests a route that you can follow when starting from your factions shrine:

Below you will find a list of pets that are suitable to beat all of the Pandarian Master Tamers. You do not necessarily need those pets, but with them you can use the first alternative listed here on every fight:

Note that for all the tamers, except Zusshi and Beasts, you can leave a level 1 toon at the pet battle and just switch between toons. On rare occasions a hawk will come out of nowhere on the Thundering Spirit. : (

It would be super awesome if you could add the breeds for the pets you are suggesting. The most awesome thing would be, if you made a seperate tab with various different useful pets and their best breeds. :)

Hey Louk!
Almost all my strategies (99%) do not require a specific breed :-)
I hear you, and such a guide of recommended breeds for certain pets would make perfect sense, but right now I am focusing on other goals with Xu-Fu's guides.

If you have a quick port to your faction's shrine (e.g. as a Mage), you can use it after Water Spirit and Mo'ruk to get to the next trainer faster.

I'd like to see a map that includes all of the Pandaria activities (Beasts, Trainers and Spirits) at once, but I have no idea where it would be put. :)

I often miss that pesky Water Spirit. :P

This is the solved TSP for a complete circuit of all 21 fights with no teleporting: http://i.imgur.com/EwNOFZi.png

Other than parked alts or strategic hearthstone attunement, it seems your shortest travel distance is to make two sweeps starting from Vale (NW route from Farmer Nishi, clockwise spiral from Thundering Pandaren Spirit for the rest), or [Alliance] one from Vale and two from Paw'don village. Unfortunately, the Peak of Serenity (monk teleport) does not seem to be a shortcut to any of these (the closest point is Kafi and Yon is closer).

(Anyone who would like to make a prettier graphic is welcome to do so without attribution.)

I've tested this now. With efficient teams, no bad crit luck, and only a little stopping to hit rares or gather, an Alliance character could battle from Shrine to Nishi to Zusshi in about 25 minutes, from Paw'don to Gorespine in about 17, from Paw'don to Nitun in about 6, and from Shrine to Whispering Pandaren Spirit in about 7. Taking four trips cuts out long flights of nothing except for the one to Mo'ruk. Incidentally, I have slow loading and it is still slightly faster to take the Dalaran portal to Shrine than it is to fly back from WPS. All in all, this takes longer than most people would want to make a daily routine even in the best of circumstances.

One good route for Horde is to pick up Beasts of Fable quests, then start with Zusshi (AFK flight path to or hearthstone at Shado-Pan Garrison / Isle of Thunder), to Nishi to Mo'ruk to Gorespine; port to Shrine, then sweep the rest starting from Thundering Pandaren Spirit.
