  • A different fix for the tainting issue introduced by Blizzard with patch 5.4.1. This time the error message is just hidden, so resetting talents should be working again. Addons like Buggrabber will still show the errors unfortunately.


  • Fixed a bug introduced by Blizzard with patch 5.4.1. I had to overwrite Blizzard's function C_StorePublic.IsDisabledByParentalControls for doing that. Don't know what that may cause. So don't use PetBattleMaster if you are in need of parental control!

  • Fixed internal bug.

    Hey, I like your addon, it's pretty cool, but I have beef with two problems that I have encountered.

    1) There is no option to De-Select teams. Your current lineup is considered a Team, always.

    When you're working with a Team you had previously created, switching one or two pets around (to level them /r try something new / whatever the reason may be) the actual Team you had previously Selected is updated to reflect that, automatically and with no confirmation.

    Making it extremely easy to mess up your own teams and go into battle with a wrong pet you didn't know you put there.

    2) The issue in question is a matter of preference, I use complementary addons like Pet Battle Breed and Pet Tracker which fufill the roles of.

    Telling me the breed and telling me whether I have, or not, X Y or Z pet. In that order.

    Your addon has a similar function which displays as a chat bubble in the bottom when highlighting caged pets.

    Which read: Owned Pet: [Name] and Missing Pet go and Catch it.  

    This little bubble of text, is not needed, Tracker tells me that. AND it overlaps with the Pet Breed addon, triggering my deepest OCDs when I see them blending into gibberish.  An option to remove that bubble of text (or even a line of code I can place on the addon itself) Would be fantastic.


  • #321

    Hi DocToaster,

    yes, PetBattleMaster really needs some kind of lock functionality. Or your suggested de-select.

    Regarding your second point. Where exactly do you see the information? There is already an option to disable the tooltip information in PetBattleMaster's configuration.

  • #318

    I love your addon.  Does it have the feature of marking the target with the circle icon when you have recently battled it?  If so, is there a way to disable this feature?

  • #319

    Hi pheelyx,

    you mean on the minimap? That sounds like you have selected "Show target" in the minimap options.

  • #312

    I recently updated the addon and for some reason my teams tab is missing.  What is the fix for this or do I need to wait for an update?

  • #314

    Hi Zyamaia,

    if you have deleted your WTF folder with the Addons settings you will have to restore it or at least the PetBattleMaster.lua file from a backup.

  • #317

    Well I did a repair on my wow folder, and reinstalled all my addons.  It seems that that did the trick.  Granted it took a while but it was worth the time and effort since I so love this addon.

  • #316

    OK, in this case you should try to reinstall PetBattleMaster or deactivate all other addons to check where the problem comes from. Have you activated "show interface errors" in Blizzard's configuration, to be able to see any Lua error?

  • #315

    I haven't deleted anything, except the Blizzard Files in the Interface directory in hopes that it might restore it once the game builds them again.  To clarify my issue I can't even make new teams as there's no tab to create or delete pet teams.

    I've been using this addon for quite some time and it's really great - thank you for that!


    I do have some ideas for further improvements though:

    - being able to group teams and minimize/maximize those groups would greatly improve navigation through teams. Example: I want to battle trainers in Pandaria, so I maximize the group "Pandaria tamers" and only see the teams I put into that group (Aki, water spirit etc.). If I have too many teams for the garrison fights I just create a new group and put all those teams into that group and may minimize it if I'm searching for a team that I know is not in that group

    - a notepad for each team would be marvellous: I have like 50 teams and I do forget the tactics on trainers I don't often visit. That usually means I have to search the web for the exact tactic or I just change the team based on a new strategy I stumble upon. Being able to write down a short tactic info for each team would save so much time!

    Hi Alandrielier, 

    very nice ideas, I don't know yet when my little son will leave me enough time for some further new features. ;-)

  • #309

    I updated this addon using the Curse Client and now all my pet teams are missing. Any way to get them back?  I had over 20 sets for different opponents; I hope I dont have to rebuild them manually because I can't remember all of them.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all.

    Hmm maybe it was due to deleting the Cache and WTF folder in WoW? If so, I might be done for since they were deleted fully in the Recycle Bin >.<

    Let me know any other solutions or causes. Ty.

    Hi dargante28,

    yes, the deletion of the WTF folder is the reason. This folder contains all the settings of every addon. You have to restore the folder or at least the file PetBattleMaster.lua, if you want to restore your teams.

  • #307


    I've applied the patch and am still seeing the "pet journal missing" message.

    Can someone please clarify specificially where it is I need to delete the folders from to get it to rebuild or how to fix this error? I've wiped a few places (Saved var, reinstalled the addon etc)  and still no luck in resolving the problem.

    many thanks

    (as someone mentions esp with 4(5 with hunter pet addons) tabs now this window is quite wide- a collapse or just when on pet tab option would be awesome if you could implement it at some point. Cheers.

  • #306

    Feature Request:  Is it possible to have the teams window only apear when the pet journal tab is selected? Currently it appears for mounts, heirlooms, toys, etc and sometimes gets in the way.

    Failing that, how about a button on the pet journal that opens it and a close/minimize button on the teams window it self. Something so it can be tucked out of the way when not in use.
