About Pet Theory

Improves upon the functionality of the PetJournal and information during Pet Battles and while wandering Azeroth.


  • Clearly displays rarity for both enemy and friendly pets during Pet Battles
  • Shows which rarities and levels of Battle Pets have been captured in their tooltips and in Minimap tooltips.
  • Displays rarity color for pets in the PetJournal, and displays rarity for non-wild pets.
  • Displays a tooltip when hovering over pets in the PetJournal so you can easily see their passives, pros, and cons, without having to click on them first.
  • Allows sorting by name, level, power, speed, health, and type in either ascending or descending order.
  • Filter pets by zone.
  • Double-click a pet in the PetJournal to summon it.

    see my post here # C71

    I suggest the same to your addon;)

    In your addon also suggest the inclusion of sex and breed comparison of the Journal would be very useful :).

    Your addon is getting better, but still can not stop using addons PetJournal Enhanced, BattlePetCount and PetTracker to use only your, still has these attributes I need, still waiting for news.

    Suggestion, based this site would not be possible to identify at the time of the battle wild pet is better than yours? so we decide to catch it or not. Remember that paragraph 5.1 rarity may be "evolved" so I think the pets before being tested must be "aligned" in the same rarity, breed and level.

    It would be very interesting to know the hour of battle the savage enemy is better than mine, that goes for those already captured also time to order.

    Missing Ace DB, Conflict with Pet Journal Enhanced

    If run as the only addon in my WoW system, on character logon it fails with a "Can't find AceDB-3.0" error.  (Adding another addon that provides Ace libraries, like Auction Lite, takes care of the problem.)

    Also there's a severe conflict with Pet Journal Enhanced: if both are run, the pet descriptions in the left column disappear.


  • #108

    PetJournal Enhanced and Pet Theory are conflicting by nature.

    I've fixed the AceDB issue in the dev version - I'll update soon-ish.

    First off, thank you for all the work on this very cool addon.

    I'm looking for an addon that displays the breed id of my pets, the breed id of pets I'm fighting against, what each of their stats are at level 25, and what alternate breed ids and stats are available for each specie. Most of this info is available from the WoW UI. Warla and Simca on the official US boards have been compiling the data that isn't. You can see the fruits of much of their labor at (The database of breed ids per specie isn't done, yet, but is on its way).

    Would it be possible to add these features to Pet Theory?

  • #104

    Decided to give your addon another shot because it seems to do the work that would otherwise take at least 3 addons.  One big issue I'm seeing, however, is that your tooltip does not identify the level of the wild pet you are about to fight.  I was told one was a level 1, and when I got into combat, it was a level 6.   Needless to say, I brought the wrong level pets to the fight and lost.

    It would also be great if one could choose to sort in descending order. 

    Guess I'm back to my three addons, but thanks for a promising addon.

    That little arrow next to the Filter popup specifies the sort order

    Zone only filter is not working once you turn it off then back on.

    What scrolling issue? There's also a confirmation on release, plainly telling you which pet is about to be released...


  • #100

    In fact, the latest Alpha version has this functionality:

  • #99

    That's a fairly trivial change to the code, and makes complete sense (much as I place non-owned pets, or non-primary-stat pets at the bottom when sorting via primary stat...). I'll have it in the next update.


  • #98

    It allows all of the favorites to be at the top of the list rather than just intermixed.  It also allows sortin by ascending and descending order.  I want to make it clear that i really appreciate the work youve done and I love the add on.  I was just used to the way PJE allowed me to sort my pets, and I will just have to get used to the way this sorts them.

    You cannot use Pet Theory and PetJournal Enhanced together, as they're essentially doing the same thing - I don't even know why you would want to. What does PJE do that you need to run it as well?
