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.

    It worked. Now the names are the color of the quality, and it's immediately evident what quality everyone is. Thanks so much.

    Pet name not showing in tooltip on 1.0.6 when you mouseover the caged pet in your bag.

    Interesting, can you replicate this? Did it happen before 1.0.6? Do you use ArkInventory or TipTac?

    It may have to do with Blizzard's slow item caching.

    The epic stats bug on tooltip have returned.

    Steps to reproduce it:

    1: choose a random pet in your pet library. Link it in chat and notice how the statbox is blue on the popup? Keep the popup on screen.

    2: Now mouse over the pet you just linked in your library and notice how the statbox tooltip appears beside the mousedover pet as expected.

    3: Move the mouse away from the pet in the library. And look what happens to the earlier linked statbox popup on screen? suddenly listing epic stats!

    Gotcha; I have a better idea how to fix it that will go into the next version.

  • #134

    Should be fixed in v1.0.7. The fix was actually ridiculously simple. I'm surprised I didn't think of it the first time.

  • #126

    I like this simple tooltip addon that provides alot of information with alot of options to clear down the clutter if you dont want a big list.

    I found a bug though (no not a fire beetle). The option "Current breed's stats at level 25" and its sub option both dont seem to do anything. I wanted it to show current breed and rarity at level 25 stats(if not "Rare") vs all breeds at rare level 25. I assume this option is supposed to do that?

    I'm not getting breed ID's in PetJournal Enhanced anymore (I prefer your implementation to theirs), did they break something or did you?

  • #124

    I'm seeing no breed ids now. Running WoW 5.2.0  (16826) 64-bit and v1.04 of Pet BreedID.

  • #123

    I made changes to PJE to stop overwriting blizzards code, if you want to intergrate the breed id's PJE uses "PetJournalEnhancedListScrollFrame" instead of "PetJournalListScrollFrame" to display the list of pets.

  • #129

    Ill try it; but my gut feeling is PetJournalPetCard.petID gets tainted by changing it in combat which taints the macro, which prevents the secure part of the secureactionbutton from being secure ;)

    edit: "A macro script has been blocked from an action only available to the blizzard ui". yep =/

     I made a post in the UI/macro form asking why its protected but I doubt it will get a response as they never seem to post their anymore. also tweeted mumper.

    A possible workaround:

    CreateFrame("Button", "PJE_Summon", nil, "SecureActionButtonTemplate") _G["PJE_Summon"]:SetAttribute("type", "macro") _G["PJE_Summon"]:SetAttribute("macrotext", "/run PlaySound("igMainMenuOptionCheckBoxOn") C_PetJournal.SummonPetByGUID(PetJournalPetCard.petID)") _G["PJE_Summon"]:SetText(BATTLE_PET_SUMMON) _G["PJE_Summon"]:SetParent(_G["PetJournalSummonButton"]) _G["PJE_Summon"]:SetPoint("TOPLEFT") _G["PJE_Summon"]:SetPoint("BOTTOMRIGHT")

    That should work; might need a little tweaking to get the text to change like it should ("Dimiss" if you have the same pet selected, "Summon" if not). 

  • #127

    C_PetJournal.SummonPetByGUID() is protected for some stupid reason. Basically it gets locked at combat and can't be called unless I use a secure button template which locks in the pet for the duration of combat or be blizzard. The net result is from PJE you cant summon pets in combat =/ Atleast it no longer says 'interface action blocked by addon' and then blames me (even tho i am the source).

  • #125

    Gotcha, thanks for the heads-up Nullberri. I was looking through it myself but it looks like you did a pretty massive rewrite!

    (Though I'll love being able to summon pets in combat again)

  • #120

    I have found two Darkmoon Glowfly that shows "???" as the breed id.  Either as letters, numbers or dual numbers.  Both of them are level one; however, one of them is Rare and the other is Uncommon.

    Rare stats: 158/10/12

    Uncommon stats: 153/9/11

    It is interesting that these are level 1 when most of the others in the area are level 6 ish.
