Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but the pet collection import doesn't seem to be working properly; I have 551 pets at max and the collection only shows 440, even after several logs and refreshes. It's making the pet checker here screwy. Import is working fine over on WarcraftPets, so I imagine it must be an issue with the updater here.
My Chitterspine Skitterling, which is a blue 25, still isn't registering in the requirements list for Fel Beasts of Argus at all, but the rest seem to be appearing. I didn't realize the pet only counts as maximized if it's a fully leveled rare (edited)
yeeeeeh... I keep pushing it back in priority. Sorry!!
I'll move it up a bit in my todo list. With the new pet tables out of the way I can spend some time focusing on bug fixing and smaller quality of life improvements again :-)
It'll not be before next week, though. Work is keeping me super busy during the days and I'm spending the weekend away in nature, without a computer :D
You must have the Rematch addon for this. If you don't, go to curseforge.com and install it.
1. Open the Pastebin link https://pastebin.com/Fg4MYguM 2. Highlight and Copy all the text. 3. Open Rematch window. 4. Choose Teams tab. 5. Choose Import Teams 6. Paste the text you copied. I think you then have to confirm "OK"
trying to load that Rematch pastebin crashed WoW. don't know if it was the size or not but there was a spinning progress circle that ran for a while before the crash. I did install the Family Familiar Helper before trying to import the teams from pastebin.
WoW. Well then copy the pastebin to Notepad. Then just sslect and copy a bit of it (now long a bit? I don't know. Try maybe 20-30 lines at a time) and do the Import Teams with that much. Then select the next 20-30 lines and go again.
usually when this happens to me, be sure to double and triple check that every single pet in your team is the correct family. sometimes it seems like a pet should be in the correct family, but it really isn't. also, make sure you or your addon isnt sticking a level pet into the strat by accident. that has happened to me in the past also. i only needed one or two pets to beat the tamer so i didnt even notice that the third slot was the wrong pet type. good luck. let us know!
curious how you all take this on. Do you focus say on one tamer and go through all the families until that one tamer is done or do you go with a family of pets first and travel around until that family is done?
assuming you have the roster, definitely just run through all the families while you are at the trainer.. i imagine it would be quite time consuming and inefficient to travel that circuit ten times if you were to them one family at a time. there are other reasons also, like spotting weaknesses in your roster, missing pets to target, or maybe just determine that you should skip a certain family for a specific trainer altogether.
Yeah thats how i go about these type of achs as well, go to a zone, pick a tamer, rotate the 10 families through, next tamer in that zone. Zone done -> next until achs pops. Got full roster, not doing dailies anyway, so its a one-time project thing.
I got kind of burned out on pet battles doing Family Familiar back in Legion, so I don't have the energy to complete a tamer in one go. I go to a tamer who's up as a world quest that day and do a couple of families. It will take me longer to finish, but at a more tolerable pace.
I'm with Zuckerguss on this one - I'm in no rush, so just do a couple of the whichever world quests are up each day for the achieve, and maybe a few that reward battle stones or pet charms and move on to do other things. I'm still building up my pet teams so if I don't have a team I might come back to the fight at a later stage when I have enough charms to buy an upgrade stone, or see if I have an alternative team - either way I'm having loads of fun, and can see merit to doing all the tamers in a zone as well which means not going back there as other posts have mentioned.
If you haven't looked it up, there's an addon Family Familiar Helper. It keeps this name because it started as one, but it includes all other Family X achievements including the newest one. It was created by the very Rematch's author, Gello, and he took a time during Christmas Eve to update it for the newest iteration. ❤
Of course, spreadsheets are a cool thing to keep track outside the game, while the API still stays wonky. :)
