03.03.2019 - PvP updates with a welcome to Shenk!

Pet battle PvP has never been my strong suit, making me rely entirely on other people to provide content for this part of the pet battling world. The latest newcomer to the Xu-Fu team kindly offered to provide his knowledge on that, admittedly lacking, part of the page: Welcome to Shenk!

The first new section up is focusing on the achievement Family Brawler, providing teams for every family right there, but you are of course more than welcome to add your own teams and ideas or leave comments.



13.02.2019 - Welcome and thanks Schlumpf!

Long time no proper announcement, it’s time to change that! And not just because WoW just turned 14 in Europe - Congrats to that!

But there is another thing that’s overdue to mention:
For a couple of weeks now, Xu-Fu has seen some immense improvements. Most notably in loading times, which are reduced drastically, but there have been changes in the background in most areas that make the page faster, more flexible and more secure. All of that is thanks to Schlumpf!

Piece by piece he has worked through my own code and optimised it, changed it or replaced it with much better versions. I am immensely grateful for all the help and wanted to make sure that it’s known who you need to thank for all the recent improvements.



14.10.2018 - So Many News!

In the last weeks I had much personal stuff to do, but today was reserved for Xu-Fu and was able to catch up with a lot of stuff! The list is longer than usual, hang tight ^^

1. Giveaway winner
Sadly Machiavelli never claimed his Cap’n Crackers, so I had to draw yet another winner. This time it goes to:

SeiriCerin#2343 as shown in this super cute image!
Please get back to me within 2 days to grab your loot code :-)

2. New addition to the team
Not exactly “new”, Jagûar has been around for a long time and worked very hard to get the entire Falcosaur strategy section up and filled with strategies! Strategy Curator is only a logical next step. Welcome to the team (again^^)!

3. Patch 8.1 Preparation
The next patch brings a new pet battle dungeon: Gnomeregan, as well as a new family achievement. Family Battler! Both sections are set up and can be filled with strategies already.

4. New alternatives sorting
A tiny change, but it will have some obvious effects. I made a tiny tweak to the sorting of alternatives.
Before:
Favourite > Pets in Collection > Tags > Average Rating
Now:
Favourite > Pets in Collection > Average Rating > Tags

Having tags overrule the rating had some weird effects, and with the rating and favourite system being used widely now, it makes more sense to swap this around. Sorry for any confusion this might cause now!

5. Hazelnutty’s videos
Long established in the pet battling world, Hazelnutty is putting out some awesome videos that I can only recommend.
Very recently she published a video with her best tips and tricks for BfA pet battling, including some very nice words about Xu-Fu!
It’s only appropriate to return the favour, so go watch the video and ideally her channel, it’s worth it for every pet battler:
Watch the video

6. More absence, oh no.
Last but not least I have another personal note. The last two weeks of October I will be almost entirely offline and there will not be much new coming from my side on Xu-Fu. That might stretch well into November - depending on how this “real life” thing works out. But I’m not gone for good and will continue working on the page once I’m back! Promise :-)

Hazelnutty has saved me more than a few times. I only have one minor issue with her pet battle videos. They are 2-4 years ago and some of the moves have changed. She suggests moves that can no longer be used together. I still love them and I am a subscriber, just a little pet peeve of mine. Another great one is Lapz Gaming. He is simple and to the point. Sometimes his strategies are almost too easy. Love Xu-Fu's site, thanks for all your hard work.

I'm noticing that some pets are showing as not collected on strategy pages, when I do actually have them. My pet collection is up to date, and when I perform a search for it, it does appear on my pet collection page. I'm seeing them specifically today on the BFA Family Battler strats, but not sure if it is site wide or not.

Oooh, even within the BFA strats, the same pet is showing as not collected on one strat, and collected on another. Same pet, Snarly. This happened with another pet as well but I can't remember off the top of my head which one it was.

Hey! Could you check please if the pet is perhaps used in this strategy several times? That's a common thing then. If that's not the case, please tell me which strategies that is exactly and I'll have a look! Thanks!

Hi Aranesh! Is it possible that if it's an option in one of the other pet slots, but not the one selected specifically, that it shows as not collected? Let me see if I can locate the strats that I'm seeing it on :)

Captured Evil -- aquatic https://wow-petguide.com/index.php?Strategy=2815&Substitutes=3:26056

I have all four of the fishing daily pets, (Snarly/Toothy/Muckbreath/Chuck). Snarly (mine is lvl 1) is default chosen in the second slot, and shows as not collected ("Your pet: Missing") in slot 3, regardless of me selecting one of the other three fishing daily pets that is NOT Snarly in slot 2. I have a lvl 25 Toothy who I'd imagine should be default chosen in slot 2?

I'll look for the other battles where they use 2 of those four fishing daily pets and see if they all do it or not.

Jammer -- aquatic https://wow-petguide.com/index.php?Strategy=2864

It seems that if the pets are the first ones selected for x spot, that if they are options in any slot to the right, they are shown as not collected. If there is a pet autoselected in x slot to the right, it's *not* showing as not collected in the slot to the left. (I hope that's clear? The logic follows that in instances where this is happening from what I have specifically noted since I started looking for the logic pattern)

Also, my pet that is 25 of the 4 options available is not being autoselected for a space where it's an option, which I seem to remember not being the case before, I thought it always selected the 25 option? Is this change, perhaps, because pets automatically adjust in level to your pets, so it's not going to pick your 25 first? If that's the case...I'd kind of like the option to retain the ability to just select my 25s site-wide?

Good luck on that "real life" thing, I hear that achievement is ridiculous to earn.

Hazelnutty has quickly become my favorite guide producer, couldn't have done Uldir without her. It's very information-dense, but I'd rather pause a few seconds to process everything, than listen to other guide makers ramble on about irrelevant stuff.
I'll check out her pet battle guides too!

Hazelnutty is a gift! I really like her videos for the same reasons, too! I just want to see what it looks like and know what it does in a short window of time, and she does exactly that. And she's enjoyable to listen to!
