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:

    I have not personally encountered any issues like this.

    Are you using any other Pet Battle addons?

  • #199

    It's not just Sky-bo....something weird has happened with wild pets too. I just spent about 30 mins battling some wild Venomspitter Hatchlings....every single one was listed as an Uncommon H/S breed, despite them all having different stats. Every secondary pets was also flagged as a poor quality H/B pet, and those all had different stats too.

    I am so confused...

  • #198

    Awesome mod :) Just updated, but Sky-bo looks bugged to me. It says they're all P/P, but some should be SS (I think). Stats for the first one: rare lvl 1, 152 hp, 10 power, 13 speed. Stats for the second: rare lvl 1, 152 hp, 13 power, 10 speed

    edit: also seeing something strange with iron starlettes.

  • #194

    Hi there,

    I just downloaded this addon today and so far I'm very pleased with the fact that I can see the breed of the pet I am currently battling or viewing in AH.  However, while in battle I can't see the breeds of secondary pets until they have been engaged and I am unable to see the breed of any other pets outside of my pet journal.  For example, if I mouse over the pet I have summoned next to me, his/her breed does not show in the mouse-over tool tip, neither does it show in the mouse-over tool tip of any pets I am engaged in battle with or other people's pets beside them.  Am I supposed to be able to see this in the mouse-over tool tip or see the breeds of secondary pets before they're engaged?  Or have I expected something that is not part of this addon?  :)

    is there an option to display enemy breed IDs in the chat box as a battle starts? i would love to use your addon and not use the addon Pet Breed IDs as well. thanks!  apologies if this already exists and i haven't figured out how to view them as described.

    I have begun getting an error when I hover over a pet's icon. I suspect this has happened only since the update but I wasn't doing pet battles so I'm not sure.

    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.

  • #189

    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.

  • #188

    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.

  • #187

    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.
