About PetBattle Teams

5.3: Blizzard reset some Pet Id's which PetBattle Teams uses to figure out which pets belong to your teams; Because of this some players may have lost some or all of their teams. In the options menu I have added a new option called 'reconstruct teams' when clicked it will attempt to rebuild your teams based on your current pets and the abilities you had previously selected for your teams. This is unlikely even when successful to rebuild your teams 100% as they were but it will hopefully create a good starting point for you to rebuild your teams.

Going forward species Id's will also be saved so if in the future blizzard wipes your pet Ids again that your teams can be rebuilt with more accuracy.
Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience.

Please report any lua errors, inconsistent or weird behavior by using the ticketing system on the projects site.

    The very first line under Features - General says "Create an unlimited teams of pets and quickly switch between them in the pet journal." So unless I'm misreading that, there is no limit to how many teams you can create.

  • #533

    The only limit is your willingness to scroll thru your teams.

  • #529

    Hello, I'm using this addon for a few days and I noticed somethig. When I create a team and save it, addon always save pet with their default skills. When I changed skills and drag the pet to the team, it changes the skills back to their default again. Is there anyway to save the teams with the skills ı choose?

  • #530

    1) When you drag a pet from the pet journal UI to a team it will always use its default skills.
    2) if you drag a pet from an existing team to another team it will use its saved skilles.
    3) make sure 'automatically save teams' is on

    4) Hit create team
    5) fill the team and select the skills
    6) create a new team
    7) change the pets and skills

    if you select the previously created team (from step 4) all of your pets are restored to how you had them setup. if you make changes to that team it will be saved.  if you want a team to stop saving changed you can right click one of the pets from the team list and select 'lock team'. now when you select that team if you make changes they wont be saved to that team.


  • #525

    I add my thanks to so many others for this addon. Wonderful creation.

    I shan't echo the previous users' comments on desired features, but I look forward to the continued improvement of this work.

  • #523

    Suddenly disappeared all teams, what may be the problem ?

  • #526

    Use reconstruct teams (from the interface menu) to fix your teams. I was supposed to handle it automatically but I guess that didn't work.

  • #528

    Yeah, that helped :) Thanks a lot for the great addon :)

  • #522

    Hi, I am absolutly thrilled over Your idea's!  But...


    For the third time now, when I logg in I find everything I entered gone. I had every Pet-battel covered as well as Special Teams for specific abilities. And 4 Teams regarding levelling Pets.

    All gone!

    Is there a way to get Teams back? It should feel a whole lot safer if You could "save" Your built teams, to use if/when this minor "catastofy" shows it's ugly face. I had put in some serious time to get all teams I made..

    As for the sorting thing someone asked for. I just drag the teams to the sequence I want and I don't think I need such a  option. I take it that He/She didn't know that this is possible.


    Keep Your good work up!

  • #524

    There is a simple thing to do : backup the petbattleteam.lua file contained in folder WTF\account\youraccount\savedvariables\

  • #521
    Search or Sort

    I have also found this to be a brilliant tool - thank you very much.

    The curse of used software is that people will always want improvements, an ability to search or sort the pet list by name would be very useful.  I already have a team for each of the harder trainers and with the upcomming celestial tournament I expect more.

    But once again thanks.

  • #520

    This is an invaluable addon for Pet Battle dailies, but are there any plans to allow searching for teams, or for sorting or re-ordering the teams in the UI?

  • #519

    Hi there,

    I have an issue that I tried getting resolved via wow's UI/Addon forum and was referred here to ask it. Is there any way to fix this:

    I've tried  /reloadui, I've tried relogging/logging into different characters, etc. Nothing has worked. I'm guessing I will have to re-add the pets manually, but if theres a solution, I'd be happy! A poster on my thread in the wow forums mentioned a backup .lua so if there is one, where would it be?

    Thanks otherwise for a great addon :)

    Edit: if it helps any and is related, my server (Area 52) crashed several times due to Oondasta, so I'm guessing thats when this issue happened because I didnt have the issue prior to today.
