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.

    Is it possible to display the available breeds for a given pet while in the journal?  I'd love to be able to see which breeds certain pets can come in (does x pet come in s/s for example) without having to hop back and forth between wow and my browser.


  • #75

    Pet Journal Enhanced does this. :)

  • #77

    Both addons do now.

  • #63

    Yes, this is a big priority now because the addon now knows all available breeds (for the new level 1 pet logic).

    I almost added it as part of this version, but I discovered several large Addon conflicts (with addons far more popular than this one) and had to pull the feature until I could find workarounds. So... soon!

    Just wanted to mention pets with long names still seem to trunkcate the BreedID Letters (numbers) when you are looking at the pets battle tool tip in the main upper pet battle frame for pets like "Wildhammer Gryphon Hatchling" when they are second or third pets in the pet battle. If you would like, I can submit a snapshot.

  • #61

    No need; I know what you mean. It will be fixed in the next version.

  • #58

    Is there a way to have breedid show for the tooltip part that says "Collected: ....."

  • #59

    Edit: BattlePetCount now supports this feature! If you have the two addons enabled at the same time, BreedIDs will be automatically added to the Collected line.

    Is there any way to make this addon display breed numbers instead of S/S, P/P etc. Warcraft pets and Schaffhauser both uses breed ids by numbers so I find it annoying that I have to translate the breeds I dont use that often. Maybe you could even make a setting that will change it ingame by the press of a button?

  • #57

    Yes, you can switch it to number form by typing /breedid 1.

    I'll try to make this option more clear by adding it to the description.

  • #52

    Can you make it possible to tell between say 3 and 13?

  • #55

    Sorry :(

    Unfortunately this is currently impossible. We -could- tell the gender for a few pets (if they have a breed only in one gender, for example) but it would only work for maybe 10% of pets, so it may just make things more confusing.

    As soon as Blizzard adds some way to tell gender in-game, we will include it.

  • #167
    Considering that WarcraftPets seems to be able to tell between the genders, I would have to assume that there's *some* way to tell the gender between pets. Maybe only *after* they have been captured, of course, but even that's a good start: being able to identify which gender you have only after it's in your book is better than not being able to ID it at *all*.
  • #53

    Cory "Mumper" Stockton, World of Warcraft's Lead Content Designer, said in a recent interview pet gender may determine stats, appearance or abilties in a near future.

    So maybe is time to start thinking about coloring breedId in pink for my female pets XD....please, please.

    Just joking jaja... a M (male) or a F (female) will be ok ......but pink pets will be soooo cute.

    I have everything displaying great in my pet journal and item tooltips but for some reason it isn't showing during battles anymore (PvE or PvP) and I'm not sure why? It did before but I redid my UI so had to redownload everything so obviously I've mucked up somewhere. I've gone back through all the compatability options again but everything that is meant to be changed has been though I do remember that when I redownloaded the enhanced journal addon I only had to change one spot (could not find another) when the guide says in both places and I had to change two the first time I did all this. Help!
