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.

For more information on breed IDs, see:

    Edit: Just released a new version, v1.1.1b. It should fix all issues with the AH tooltips, and it also adds full support for people who use the addon called ArkInventory.

    Let me know if your issues are fixed or if you have any outstanding problems. Thanks!

    There is definitely a silent taint going on with this addon when interacting with the AH.  Looking up any pets under the Battle Pets section, the tooltip will work fine with most, but occasionally hovering over a particular (yet unknown) pet will cause the tooltip to fail to work again until a reload is performed.

    For me, hovering over the Darkmoon Rabbit (as an example for me) causes this issue to occur.

    Still a good addon otherwise outside of the AH.

    Patch 5.4.8 (May 21, 2014)

    The BreedID is overwriting the names of caged pets (instead of adding to them) in the tooltip. This is causing strange behaviors interacting with the auction house. Isolated by disabling all other addons.

    Hi, thanks for the addon, it's very helpful, but I am having a persistent problem. At least I think the problem stems from this addon, I only have 3 and this seems like the most likely.

    I think it started after you updated it, because it didn't used to do this, but now it does it all the time.

    When in the AH, if I hover over a pet the tooltip comes up and everything works fine at first, but then it stops working.

    It seems like it fails after I hold it over a listing for too long, or look at several listings.

    Once it stops working, that's it... I get no tooltip at all, nothing. I have to log off and back in to get it working again. Tooltips for everything besides battle pets still work normal.

    I do NOT get any kind of error message.

    It's really frustrating, because I like to scan the AH for pets and examine the breeds.

    My only addons are, this one, Rematch, and PetTracker.

    Thanks for any help you can provide. :)

    Hi I use Auctionator and I have an issue while browsing the auction house for pets. This error occurs if I hover over a pet. After the error message the breed info doesn't show up anymore until I tip /reload.

    The error message:

    Likewise, same for me.  I roll over and the tooltip appears and then it gives me an error and no more tooltips in auction house.

  • #186

    The above error also happens when I browse the AH, but only with pets NOT in my collection. Maybe this gives a clue for finding the error.


  • #181

    Hi there, I seem to be having a minor issue, and not sure exactly what's causing it, so maybe you can help me out. I have all the options enabled (ALL of them) in my addon preferences for this addon, because I want to see breed ids in tooltips and whatnot... well, problem seems to be that I don't get breed ids in tooltips for chat that I have to click on. I'm not sure if this is related to not getting tooltips when I hover over links for battle pets (as opposed to everything else where this works fine), but it is an issue that I'd like to resolve if possible.

  • #182

    This sounds like an addon conflict.

    Can you post a list of all the addons you have enabled here?

  • #184

    Sorry, forgot about this and didn't see the reply!

    Addon Control Panel
    Battle Pet BreedID
    CurseProfiler (though this is basically never enabled)
    Ion Bag Bar
    Ion Menu Bar
    Ion Pet Bar
    Ion Status Bars
    LDB Friends
    LDB Guild
    Masque: Caith
    Shadowed Unit Frames
    WeakAuras 2
    WIM Skin Suite
    Wowhead Looter

    On 99% on my battle pets, the breed ID shows the correct letters (S/S, H/P, etc.)

    For some reason, my Undercity Rat shows (???) in the list (left side), and in the main preview window is shows B/B, but that designation is greyed out.

    Other than that, everything seems to be running fine...

  • #183

    This is intentional - breeds are calculated by the AddOn (not provided by the game) and in some rare cases, you may find a level 1 Battle Pet with multiple breed possibilities.

    The main window's "B/B" indication is provided by Pet Journal Enhanced (not this addon), and it is greyed out because that addon greys out Breeds when it is "not confident" that the breed it is showing is correct.

  • #176

    This addon is not working for me. It was running perfectly a week ago, but not anymore.
    I tried disabling all addons / deleting WTF folder but it still doesnt show breeds. Help!
