About Battle Pet BreedID

Battle Pet BreedID is a standalone addon that will display the Breed of any pet in the following situations:

  • In Battle
  • In your Pet Journal's scroll list
  • In your Pet Journal's pet description tooltips
  • In Item tooltips
  • In Chat Link tooltips
  • In the "Collected ..." line (with BattlePetCount installed)

Theorycrafting is up to you... but if you know what stats you value most, now you can find them! To learn how the Breed ID affects your pets, go here:

This addon uses the letter system by default (B/B for breed ID 3, etc), but if you want to switch to the number system used by other resources, just type "/breedid" or go to Interface->AddOns to open the Battle Pet BreedID options panel. You can change the format type at the top in the Dropdown box, along with over 20 other different options!

Please report addon conflicts (especially with tooltips) and other errors in the comments on Curse/CurseForge.

    i hate asking authors to add a feature, i know they make the addon for their own purposes, then share it with the community, but i'm hoping you might find this useful yourself;

    would it be possible to add an option to put the breed on the icon of the pet itself, not only in the journal total pet listing, but in the team listing too ?  i have a (b/b) and a (h/h) unborn val'kyr and I very frequently use them in the same team, and it would be amazing if i didnt have to find the proper area in the team section to click on them to get them selected, then mouseover them to see which one is which.  i'm sure it would come in handy in many many other circumstances also, and would just look cleaner than having it following the name in the journal.

    anyway, thanks for the addon and taking time to read the post

    edit: also would like to add, if you do decide to add this feature, it would need to be placed in either the top right or bottom left corners, since favorite star is in top left and level is bottom right

    Ive an S/B stinkrot and the breed text is massively overflowing the box, that is way too small to fit it. 

    Fragment of Anger slightly overflows the breed box as well.

    i have a P/B one myself and it's doing the same thing, its not an issue with the addon, if you notice, the blizzard tooltip for stinkrot is skinny, the addon matches the background tooltip width used with the blizzard one for the pets

    That error message is for a different addon. This is "BattlePetBreedID" and the error message is for "PetBreedIDs".

    The addon gives fake breeds when you are trying to capture the pets, the addon marks the pet was P/S and when you capture it mark its P/P or gives S/B in a P/B pet, this happened to me with emerald protowhelp and with spawn of onyxia, i dont know if happens with more pets.

  • #239

    Can confirm the above when capturing Nexus Whelpings. Breed appears as P/S , S/B and P/B despite only having breeds of P/P, P/S and P/B. Pet was revealed as P/P only upon capture of a reported P/S variants.

    Maybe some issue with Dragonkins?

    Great addon still!

  • #244

    Does this include the Ore Eater? Got a "Rare Speed" one, I see from Warcraft Pets that two breeds share the level 1 stats, but it's still ??? even in my pet journal when learned. Is that something addons can't read?

  • #243

    This is intentional for level 1 pets in certain situations.

  • #242

    Its partially fixed, some P/X or X/P breeds between level 1-10 now appears as ????

  • #241

    Looks like all wild pets have had their Power stat reduced by 25%!

    The new version of the addon, v1.3.4, should now compenstate for this.

  • #236

    I love this addon; having the 'breed' of my tamed battle pets readily available is very helpful. Would it be possible to also indicate if the battle pet is tradable?

  • #233

    Heya, just updated the mod (which I love btw), and I think it's missing a couple of breeds:

    Bone Serpent P/S 

    Young talbuck H/B

    Also, when I mouse over Bone serpent (none learned) in the journal, I only see 2 breeds (BB and SS), but when I mouse over Bone Serpent in the AH, I see 3 breeds (HH in addition to the BB and SS).

    All three issues solved with the breed updates in v1.3.3.

    Updated version is not working for me.
