Rare Minfernal! *jealous*

I'll have to check out the addons, esp. the team one. Stupid stupid wrong spells all the time. *laugh*

Anyone know the droprate for the Pandarian Spirits from those bags? I've been beating all 4 every day for a while, haven't gotten a pet from them yet. :(

The lightning croc thing from Isle of Thunder is decent against elementals - Taste for Blood is a huge hit. I still like the snail a bit more, Shield and Absorb keep its health up between Dives. (Except against the V4W trainer - the croc tears up the sunflower and turnip - easy big XP for leveling something else.)

Feline Familiar is actually a very good all-purpose pet; making him rare is a good call. I was using him for most of my Beasts of Fable teams to open; Prowl followed by Call Darkness is a fantastic combo that will take off about 1/4 of any of the beasts of fable's health. Not to mention 1-shot most non-legendary or player pets or ANY legendary dragon pet.

I'll give him more chances then,i admit i never thought of prowl buffing coD damage...

Got my rare Yellow Moth to 25 and decided to try some PvP with triple moths. So far I've only lost once out of 15 battles, with 2 people fleeing on sight now, and one guy started using moths. :D

I got bitten by this pet bug. Can't even tell you the number of hours I spent leveling pets last night (and getting achievements! Wooo!) over the weekend. I remember looking at the clock and suddenly realizing I'd been doing the same thing for five hours straight... and then proceeded to keep on going. Oh man.

I blame Invis. He's been doing this since launch and even though it's taken me months... I'm totally sucked in now.

5.3 removes the same level base miss/dodge chance. Reduces the miss chance against higher levels from 5% to 2%.
Abilities will show their hit chance in the tooltips
Beast of Fables daily will be split into 3 quests
Beast of Fables elite pets made more difficult
Battle Pet ability load out will be saved when swapping them in and out of slots
All Spirit and Fable pets will reward Lesser Charms and XP

Ah, that's a fairly nice set of changes. It'll definitely be nice to know the actual miss chance of stuff like Moth Dust etc.

Guaranteed Lesser Charms will be nice, though I wonder if on the Fable ones it's only the first time each day. Otherwise, it might be really easy to get 90 Lessers in about 30 minutes just hitting the same one over and over.

Personal pet stuff: Farming the Spirit Tamers each day - all four of them. Only gotten one pet from the bags so far - seems like quite a low drop rate.

Picked up a couple of harder-to-get pets last couple days, too: Twilight Fiendling, Tiny Bog Beast, Molten Hatchling.

The Spirit tamers are the ones that drop the red pandas right? We actually thought the drop rate was quite high since Invis got all of them for himself and then managed to give me all three of the ones he can trade to me after he collected his.

Those are the Fable pets. Spirit Tamers are the Earth, Air, Water, Fire elementals like in the Panderan starting zone that drop small versions of themselves.

Yeah, the Spirit tamers have a pretty low drop rate for their pets, around 10% iirc.

One week, three characters. Missing 3 from Raiding with Leashes II.
Need the ones from Curator, Malchezaaroar(whatever), and Vashj. Double-sized Pocket Fel Reaver is amusing. *chuckle*

(I was really lucky and got the Lil' Bad Wolf with the only one of the three that hit that Opera. Got one of each Opera on the three guys!)

How to solo Chess (for Horde, I'd imagine it's the same for Alliance if the pieces have the same abilities):
- Move the knight pawns (in front of the wolves) up a square.
- Move the rooks (demons) up diagonally one, into the spot vacated by the pawns.
- Move the pawn in front of the warlock up one.
- Grab the Warlock, move him up a square, and start shooting at the lowest health stuff you can reach, AoE-ing where appropriate.
- If the king (or maybe even the warlock) starts to get low, jump to a bishop and heal.

This has worked every time for me, and I'm not even using the wolves at all really.

I cleared The Eye 5 times and got one pet. 3/3 from SSC and 2/4 from Kara. Farmed up the Direhorn Runt from the Isle of Giants and then finished off the bones for the Spectral Porcupette and of course my first purchase from the trolls was the Ghadzooki.

So how are the new pets in battle, or are they getting better at their rock-paper-scissors balancing?
