    heres a suggestion if possible.

     when we hover on the minimap a pet marker, it shows a check mark by the name if we have caught it(already does this), have the checkmark be colored, the color of the highest rarity of that pet we have, ie... a blue checkmark to indicate we have caught a blue, green for uncommon, white for common etc..

    reason for this, is its rather hard to read the names when you have show captured selected so i tend to leave it off and only leave show uncollected checked(in the quest tracker list) which leaves the names white, making them far more legible than the red ones. just a thought of something people might like, i myself am always mouse hovering the  minimap when i see a pet icon on it, and it would be a quick way to instantly know if i need a better rarity of the given pet. 

    great work so far. youve saved me a lot of time, hunting for these guys!

    I too am having issues with seeing "PetTracker has never seen you fight this adversary" - Mo'Ruk

    I'm having issues with seeing "Petracker has never seen you fight this adversary" when I've most definitely done so several times.  Is this a known issue or is my plugin jacked up?  It tracks most fights, but some it specifically won't remember.  Mo'Ruk and 3/4 Pandaren Spirits (not Thunder), for example.

  • #1007

    I would love to have the ability to move the 'enemies abilities' screen around, somehing like a /movepet command or similar. Apart from that minor thing, great addon!

    for those of you having trouble with pet tracker where it pretty much disables itself and you cant get anything to work all you needa do is reactivate it downloa: its an addon control panel that lets u deactivate and reactivate addons easily when i got the glitch stopping it i download this thinking why not might work, it did i used it reactivated the mod and restarted game and it was good as new I'd highly recommend it

  • #1004

    Are there pets that dont have a breed type? i just got my raven hatcling from the WoD preorder, but it doesnt show anything

  • #1006

    We still don't have data about that pet, to predict breeds.

  • #1003

    I couldn't find it here so I am asking. I use Carbonite and the pet symbols on the zone maps doesn't scale when I zoom in and out of the world map. Is there a way to fix this and if not how do I disable the pet symbols ?

  • #1001

    I've recently came back to WoW and reinstalled addons from scratch. I remember I used to have letter breeds displayed instead of symbol breeds, like H/H or P/S, which are commonly used on pet battling sites, but there's no config to change that. Was this option removed or was that some other addon I'm missing now.. I wish I could only stick to Pet Tracker for my pet battling needs. If this option was not in PT before - could you consider it to be added?

  • #1000

    I really love this add on and want to thank you very much for all your work. LOL

    then i want to ask you to do more....::winks:: there a way you can make it moveable to anywhere on the screen like drag it, also resize it.

    I have a problem with being able to see and on the icons you put things like and quest marker and other items to show were they come from,  the one on the disgustion oozeling looks like a pot of gold but i cant be sure.

    I came here hoping there would be a list of the pics on the icons and a name next to them or explation of where the icons are showing they come from, to be clearer, like the icon with a yellow question mark = item from completing a quest,   and so on.

    Any way thank you again for all your time.

  • #999

    Is there anyway to disable everything ab out the addon except showing the stable locations on world map? I like the addon for use on other toons but as for my hunter I ONLY need stable locations shown on world map..not all the extra pet stuff that is always shows namely and mainly the zone tracker that there is NO WAY to turn off from showing on right side of my screen.

    Actually other than disabling or removing the addon itself there is zero ability to configure any of it like other addons. 

    IF there were a god, you wouldn't need WoW to fill that hole in your life

  • #998

    first off this is a great add-on, makes finding the beasties so much easier.  i am haivng an issue in raids, when i open the map a giant pet icon on the map, covers the entire page.

  • #996

    So since Pokemon Trainer has quit updating, I was thinking that this would be the perfect mod to add a feature it had where it colors known and unknown pets in the auction house.

  • #995

    Is there any way to selectively disable pets by acquisition type or rarity on the progress list on under the tracked quests? Particularly in capitals the list becomes unwieldy as it includes seasonal quests and ones I already have a rare version of. I'd like to be able to pare it down to things I can actually hunt down to fill gaps. The Captured Pets flag comes close, but it ends up showing holiday pets I can't get yet and *not* showing wild pets I have of lower qualities then rare, so it is not as focused as I'd hope.
