World of Warcraft – Pet Battle Bonus Week

It’s the Pet Battle Bonus Week Event in World of Warcraft and that only means one thing for me.

Pet battling is all I’m going to be doing in Warcraft for the next week! I like to take advantage of the extra experience points for my battle pets and I have a lot of them to level!


There are a lot of different things to do to entertain yourself in Warcraft. There are people that love to Raid and only work toward the end game content. There are people that play the Auction House to become rich in gold beyond their wildest dreams. There are people that love PVP play and collect their honor points so they can gank every noob that dares to enter their LoS.

And then there’s people like me – Collectors! I collect pets, mounts, titles, reputation and achievements. My crowning glory is grinding and farming the ridiculous rep needed to get the Insane in the Membrane achievement which I proudly wear my ‘the Insane’ title for on all but a couple of my toons.

I’ll get back to that in a future Warcraft blog. This is pet battle week! Yaaaaaaaaay!

One of my long term goals in Warcraft is to not only collect pets, but to also get them to level 25. I should mention that I only level Rare quality pets. So any that I have that aren’t Rare quality are going to sit in my Collection tab until I either replace them with Rare quality or buy the upgrade with my Pet Battle Tokens. Eventually my goal is to have the max number of pets and for them all to be max level Rare quality! I’ve been working on this for a few years.

The best place to park yourself is in Valley of the Four Winds in Pandaria, just over the Sky Range ooker dooker mountain ledge. I camp out there with a toon that has the mining profession and grab some nodes while I’m zipping between pets to battle or waiting for my heal pets cool down. Pipskweek my dwarf Paladin is currently there hanging out.

There are some nice groups of Malayan Quillrat families that you can just stay in one place and battle your heart out for an hour or so.

Pipskweek is getting a lot of exp herself by pet battling. She is very close to dinging 101 and I have not done any of the Legion content with her. Pet battle wins in a max pet level zone give between 10,000 and 11,000 exp per battle. Plus the ghost iron she is mining will be used to make Sky Golems. My Sky Golem manufacturing has been my main source of gold since they pulled the plug on the Garrison gold making machine. I have been able to fund my subscription for well over a year now by using gold to buy tokens instead of real money. Yaaay!


I’m aware that patch 7.2 dropped yesterday and that there is some sort of Pet Battle dungeon but I will reiterate – I only pet battle during the Pet Battle Bonus Week! I’ll check out the Β new content next Wednesday!

I currently have 373 Level 25 Rare quality pets. I will report my progress next Tuesday night when Pet Battle Bonus Week is over.

Thanks for reading!

    1. It really is a fun video game. There is so much to do. Hubby and I have been playing together for over 10 years. There is a subscription cost of $15 a month but that was our date-night every day. A lot cheaper than dinner and a movie. It really is a time eater though so not recommended for anyone that has a busy schedule. πŸ˜€

  1. Loved WoW Never played it though but I liked watching my friend play he was pretty awesome as it. I don’t think i could grasp it though! It’s nice you have something you can bond over with the hubby! Im a bit obsessed with simcity atm LOL and bloody chef games on my phone.. even those cheesy romance choice games aaaah. Also 3.99 for EA access (origan pc) to play games hahaha. You will have to do a video game play πŸ˜€

    1. I love sim games!! I didn’t get the EA access from Origin, but I bought and play a few games using Origin. I wouldn’t even know how to stream game play but I bet TheCraftingRogue would know how! Maybe we can convince her to make a video! πŸ˜€

      1. Sims is amazing, I hate sims 4. The only good thing about sims 4 is that you don’t need a high spec pc. I can run it smoothly on my 4 year old laptop but i do miss the open world and for the price of the expansions just isn’t worth it. I could talk about sims all day it was my teenage escape when i never went out. YES someone make a video LOL I don’t know if you can stream with twitch on laptop? I know you can on xbox easily

        1. I feel the same as you about 4 – I love how you could go anywhere you want in 3 – I have spent a ridiculous amount of money on 3 expansions LOL.


          1. Yesssss and you had the create a world tool and make your own world’s it was a lot more creative but they got sloppy with the last few expansions on 3 because 4 was about to be released. Gotta love the custom content though haha

          2. Island paradise pissed me off so bad – I bought it so I could live on a houseboat and didn’t know that it freezes your game up every 2 minutes!! grrrrr. I think I’m probably going to need to make a Sims category in my Tapestry!

  2. Oh Tami, why do you do this to me? Ever since you first mentioned WOW a couple of weeks ago while presenting Tanglewood Tapestry, I’ve had the itch to start playing again (after promising myself I wouldn’t because it’s so darned addictive). But now, I want to play again. I love collecting titles πŸ˜€ Not a raider though -waaaaaay too much stuff going on there. I also love being a healer for dungeons (much less wait time than for DPS and I find it more enjoyable than tanking). Ok, enough rambling from me now. Have fun in Pet Battle bonus week! Just out of curiosity, what realm do you play in?

    1. My alliance main and most often played alts are on Kael’thas. I also have ally and hordies on Feathermoon, and Wyrmrest Accord. Just let me know when you want me to give you my tag LOL! and BTW my main is a mage but – Holy Priest is my FAVORITE class/spec!!! πŸ˜€


      1. My last main was a Holy Priest. I seriously fell in love with the class. My battlenet account was deactivated recently, so I’m going to have to start from scratch (which is also part of the fun!). I’ll definitely give you a holler once I’m connected to get your tag! *woot woot*!

        1. LFG need Heals and Deeps! BTW hubby is an awesome tank so yeah, insta-que! I love starting from scratch!! No gold, no bags – rollin’ up naked – except for my heirlooms!! πŸ˜€


    1. Hi! Thanks for stopping by. πŸ˜€ I haven’t tried any of the pet collector add-ons. I usually just sort by the pet tabs in the collections menu for “not collected” and scroll through to see what I need to get. I also use the Achievements menu to see what I still need to collect for the pet achievs. I’ll check out the add-ons though! Thanks for the tip! πŸ˜€
