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.

    Can you elaborate? Seems to work fine for me. Might be a conflict with a different pet battle addon that is broken.

  • #232

    You were correct. There was a conflict with a broken add on. I had to delete the contents of my add on folder and reintall it. Works just fine now. Would not work with out dated add ons disabled.

    Quick 6.1 fix - Find and replace "Blizzard_PetJournal" with "Blizzard_Collections" on line 530 of BattlePetBreedID.lua .

    Fixed in v1.3.1.

    Often times instead of seeing the pet breed letter pairs, this addon will show "ERR-NAM".  I can reloadui and this goes away.  Or, I can forfeit a pet battle and start it again and it will then show the right values. 

    I don't know why this is happening, but I see it every day, several times a day during random pet pve pet battles.  If you have any ideas on how to fix this, then please advise.  BTW, I use a slew of other pet battle addons...

    Mechanical Axebeak comes in SS 325 aswell as the 4 listed ingame :)

    I can confirm this, and have one in my pet journal, it has more speed than a S/B breed.

    Fixed in v1.3.3.

    I have another battle pet addon called PetBattleMaster.  I've noticed that this addon's tooltip is colliding with PetBattleMaster's own tooltip. 

    PetBattleMaster puts a small one-line tooltip below the normal pet info tooltip.  But Battle Pet BreedID is displaying a tooltip at the same coordinates, causing a garbled and messed up tooltip display. 

    Can you please fix it so that this addon moves its tooltip down a little bit so that the two addons cooperate and do not overwrite each other? In your code, in BreedTooltips.lua, this is the code that is causing the problem...


        -- Set positioning/parenting/ownership of Breed Tooltip
        breedtip:SetOwner(parent, "ANCHOR_NONE")
        breedtip:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", parent, "BOTTOMLEFT", 0, 2)
        breedtip:SetPoint("TOPRIGHT", parent, "BOTTOMRIGHT", 0, 2)

    For me, I changed both occurences of "2" to "-20" and it fixed it.  But this moves down the tooltip in ALL cases, which is not the best way to do this.  It probably should look to see if there is a PetBattleMaster tooltip being displayed, and if so, make that tooltip frame its parent frame.  etc etc

    Fixed in r48 / v1.2.1.

    The addon likes to report missing information for the Iron Horde Scraps and related vendor items from the Bunker.  Kinda weird since these items aren't "pets" but it might fall into something for the addon to respond to it upon detection or mouseover.


  • #218

    I'm pretty sure you have a different addon to blame for that issue. This addon will never report missing information unless you have a special debug option turned on, which you can't turn on without a special script to type in.

    Hello there! I've been using this add-on for a very long time now, and I absolutely adore it!

    I'm here to report an error though. For Stonegrinder, it lists that it can be of two possible breedIDs (#4(P/P) and #8 (P/S...I think? I use the number system) I've been using the Auction House for awhile, and I have never seen breedID #4. After checking, Warcraft pets, and Wowhead, it seems that it can only come in breedID #8, unfortunately. Not sure how you get your data (if it's from the game itself, then it might be a glitch that there have been none with #4 then?), but figured I'd report it anyway.

    Thanks for all the hard work! Definitely one of my most favorite add-ons.
