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.

    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.

    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!

    It seems the only way that i can get the availible breeds tooltip to show while browsing the auctionhouse is with auctioneer enabled (and its tooltip), works everywhere else, and i have disabled most every addon i have, this was on my bank toon so he has very few addons enabled anyways.

  • #172

    I do not know a lot about LUA, but this seems to be pointing to the the tooltip is not anchoring to the FloatingBattlePetToolTip as displayed from the auctionhouse, when i have auctioneer toolitp enabled i can see the battlepet breedid tooltip from the AH because its anchoring to Aucitoneers frame, hopefully that makes some sence, I dont know how to fix it but hopefully this may point you in the right direction. I am mainly wanting to shed auctioneer but i do a lot of battle pet browsing and dont want to have to shift click them into chat then click on them just to see availible breeds for any pet im interested in.

    I was able to make it work (for me at least) without error by simply changing the parent in lines 72 - 75 from extratip to parent, i know its a hack and slash fix but i really need to get auctioneer outa my addons list.

    Glad I could help, I know just enogh about scripting to fix a little bit on my own, i couldnt figure out why it would make a difference if i changed both sections to reflect attaching to the parent rather than having one attach to the non existant libextratip

  • #174

    Yup, I was able to find the problem based on your comment. Thanks!

    It appears that internal.LibExtraTip:GetExtraTip(parent) was returning a blank tooltip if the user had the LibExtraTip library active but no addon was actually using an extra tooltip on FloatingBattlePetTooltip. Since the blank tooltip had no properties or anything, it was invisible, and that made breedtip invisible too.

    I added a line to check if extratip is visible first, and that seems to have fixed the problem completely while retaining functionality for Auctioneer and other LibExtraTip addons.

  • #173

    Huh, thanks for that last bit - changing what you changed should never make a difference, and the fact that it does make a difference helps me GREATLY in figuring out what is wrong.

  • #169

    I find the addon very good. However, I would hope that you could even expand it where you could see the pets gender. then you could collects trophy after trophy one or the other couple before.

  • #170

    I do like the idea of the gender being displayed but in the mean time if you set the display options to show a single number rather than the letter system (B/B, etc) you can determine the pets gender based on that number. 3-12 indicates a male pet while 13-22 indicates a female pet... and let me just say I'm not sure what to think now that I know my Cinder Kitten Burnadette is male.

    As of this week, this addon is no longer working for me. I'm also using Elvui and disabled that skin for the pet frame and still no luck. I'm hearing that is a 5.4.1 conflict with Pet Tracker addon.
