Favorite Battle Pet Add-ons no Zookeeper should be without

Favorite Battle Pet Add-ons no Zookeeper should be without


It's the first of many monthly topics over at Warcraft Pet Foundry Blogging Carnival. This is fashioned after the infamous Cold's Gold blogging carnival & should be a great place to learn & discuss all things Pet Battles in the World of Warcraft.  The inaugural September 2013 topic is:

Pet Battle Add-ons (which add-ons do you use & which ones can you not live without.)

Battle Pet BreedID - This is probably my most favorite add-on for Pet Battles. The pet's breed will be displayed along with all other possible breeds for a particular pet in your tooltip. Why is this important? A breed type determines the attributes/stats of a Battle Pet. At a glace you can see the differences between breeds & also shows all stats compared at max level 25. This will help you decide which pets you want to keep or chase after BEFORE you waste time leveling them up to 25 only to find out there is a "better" version.

The next add-on works in conjunction with my favorite listed above...

BattlePetCount - Really simple, small add-on for displaying the quality/rarity of battle pets you already own whether in the battle, caged on npc via the tooltip.

PetTracker - This is my second favorite Battle Pet add-on. It is really robust & contains a ton of information for the player. Major features are: Displaying the locations of all pets, stables and tamers on the world map, tracks your progress of catching all pets in your current zone, shows the rarity of all three opposing pets in battle and warns you if there are upgrades to be made versus pets you already own, & displays all your enemies and allies abilities as you fight. This add-on has been instrumental in filling out my collection, locating missing pets in the zones I am in & formulating strategy & swaps while fighting by seeing opponents other pet's abilities even if they are not currently up to fight.

Battle Pet Daily Tamer - Just as it is aptly named, this gem will puts a familiar green paw on the world map to mark where daily pet tamers are that you have NOT completed for the day. 5.3 patch introduced a 'Show Pet Tamers' option to the default UI, but the default implementation continues to show the paws after the daily is completed. Also the default UI it doesn't differentiate between satchel and non-satchel tamers, & it doesn't support Beasts of Fable pets.

Happy Hunting!
