Battle Pet Import String for Legion 7.3 (Complete)

(Updated 15.11.17: Includes both level 1 & level 25 Naxxy)

I’ve decided to remove all the previous outdated Battle Pet strings as this may lead to confusion and may conflict with future versions. As of today (05.10.17) this import string is complete, including level 1 and level 25 for every trade-able battle pet.

Like previous versions, I’ve split the string into two groups, as the complete group is far too large to import in to one import. The two groups are A-M and N-Z. These strings DO NOT include price strings, this is to prevent any potential issues. I also wouldn’t advise using price strings from someone else, as economies differ on different realms. My price strings are set to different realms and not based on an average like in the past. This is because wow-pets.com is no longer being updated.

Directions for use:
One: Backup your TSM3
Two: Create a group in TSM addon called Battle Pets
Three: Select the import/export tab and import A-M string!
Four: Once you’ve imported it, enter /reloadui in chat to save your import
Five: Once reloaded, reopen TSM and Import N-Z
Six: Again /reloadui once more to save that import.

Here’s a screenshot of what the group should look like, once successfully imported and group layout expanded. If you do not follow the steps above, then you will have a group missing, or maybe pets missing, so please follow careful!

When you do a search on the AH, please be aware that scanning times may be very high, due to the sheer amount of Battle Pets you’re searching. If you’d prefer to use a different search method, I’d recommend entering this into the TSM AH search box; /Battle Pets/i25 for level 25’s and /Battle Pets/i1 for level 1’s. This is slightly quicker and just use your tooltip with your price strings, to evaluate whether to make a purchase.

Please DM me on Twitter if you experience any issues, or you need some advice and I’ll get back to as soon as possible. This is the quickest method of contact!

Thank you to Sheyrah for the /reloadui tip, for updating TSM to prevent loss of data on multiple imports. Also a big thank you to Muffins for the Battle Pet ID’s for 7.3. Without these, this wouldn’t have been completed as quick! Muffin works within the TSM team, also known as TheOneOnDruryLane.

I’ve added their Twitter accounts, be sure to check them out!

Updated Battle Pet Import String v.4 (NO LONGER AVAILABLE)

Good evening guys. Finally… yes finally, I think I have completed my Battle Pet Import Strings. Well, until the next patch comes out and more Battle Pets come into the game. Whilst every care was taken to create these groups and settings, if you do come across any errors that need my attention, please do contact me via Twitter and I’ll gladly help you out where necessary.

On this occasion I’ll be sharing three strings, two which have the Auction & shopping Operations included. These had to be split up, due to the size of the group. When you import these, make sure you /reloadui after the first import. This will write the info to your addon files and obviously refresh TSM. The other one, is without operations and easier to import. Simply copy the string you wish into your TSM3 which will benefit you the most. Please make sure you back up your TSM3 prior to importing, in the case of any potential issues/errors. If you do experience any issues, please do let me know on Twitter.

If you want to share these strings, please do so, but credit me where possible! I’ve spent a lot of time creating these and I always credit people their work I share, I would appreciate the same please. Please DO NOT sell these strings either, these are created to help others, not to profit from them.

Reminder:
Thanks to Peelyon, Super Squirt is on Sunday 12th Feb, so if you wish to power level any Battle Pets from 1 to 25 please follow his guide. Also, don’t forget he streams on Twitch too. He has a depth of knowledge on Battle Pets and making gold within Warcraft, so be sure to drop on by and check him out.

Many thanks for reading and hope you benefit from these strings. Until next time.

5 Days till Legion…

So, the very long and tedious wait is almost over and the countdown for Legion is in the single digits, well… if you’re an EU player, it’s 5 days to be precise. The question on my lips is… are you prepared?! LOL

Legion Preperations
Given that my efforts in the build up to the release of Legion was to buy as much stock as possible, invest in as many cheap battle pets as I could possibly get my hands on and more importantly, level all my professions up to 700 to take advantage of new patterns and craft best in slot crafts for Legion levelling. It’s been a huge success and I’m definitely prepared! If you read my previous article “As the dust settles on the legion pre-patch” you’ll know that I’ve built up an impressive inventory worth approximately 25m gold. I will continue to build this up further, right up to the last couple of hours of Warlords of Draenor, then look to sort my inventory out, to maximise my transition to Legion. My Transmog has all been moved to an alt account, so I can buy and post auctions, whilst playing on my main account, the ability to buy WoW Tokens, has made this easy and achievable.

It’s worth noting at this point, many people without the space, will look to offload a lot of their inventory, in readiness for Legion so they have space to level and gather new materials in Legion. People like myself, who have plenty of space, thanks to Guild Banks, look to profit from the very cheap materials that people will post. If you check your Auction House, you may already noticed a big influx of cheap materials already. If I had any tips for you, it would be to buy up as much Outland materials as you possibly can! For example, Motes, Primals, Scales, Leather and Enchanting materials. Farming will die down, with the introduction of new content and some of the best Transmog crafts need these materials. Not to mention the Tomes you can craft from Enchanting.

Yet Another TCG Battle Pet Dupe Wave
Another thing you might have noticed recently, is another dupe wave of (TCG) Trading Card Game battle pets. Sadly, any hope of holding out for Legion to sell my stock, took a small hit, as the new wave gave another opportunity to others to build their inventory full of cheap TCG pets. Hopefully, those who did take up the opportunity to buy cheap pets, took the same method as myself and opted to buy through the Auction House. You may or may not be aware, but any transactions via the Auction House are protected. So if the worst possible scenario was to happen and your pets were removed, you should get a full refund of the gold spent on that purchase. This doesn’t extend to pets purchased via trade, so be very careful! Tio from @BlizzardCSEU_EN on Twitter was kind enough to reiterate its stance on refunds regarding compromised TCG battle pets/mounts purchased via the Auction House. Below is a couple of images to offer some confidence.


Replica Transmog
Thankfully, another thing I’ve noticed, is a drop in competition for Replica Transmog gear on my realm. This was maybe due to a new set of recipes that were made available for Scribes within the Darkmoon Faire. These cost a fair amount of tokens, thus meaning people averted their attention from buying Replica gear to purchasing these recipes. These recipes were released prior to Legion, so many wanted a head-start. The release of the new Transmog System and low competition had a massive effect on my sales, as they increased hugely over the last 2-3 weeks.

Replica sales last 30 days

Blizzard Getting DDOS Again…
Again, thanks to the world of Twitter, I’ve been made aware that again Blizzard have succumb to more DDOS attacks, which if your memory serves you well, you’ll remember it was one of the major incidents to affect the first day of the release of Warlords of Draenor. Here’s hoping that Blizzard hurry and fix these recent issues and also prevent another fiasco on the release of Legion. It’s fair to say, Blizzard lost a lot of confidence from its returning players that day, and that’s not even mentioning the word Garrisons…lol.

Power Levelling Via Legion Invasions
And last, but not least Legion Invasions… If you have alts that you fancy power levelling up before Legion, I’d suggest you get involved in this now, before it’s too late! As long as your alt is level 10 or higher, it can take part. Simply open your map (M) go to an area that is highlighted as being invaded and complete stage 1 and 2. Once Stage 3 starts, simply log out fully (you’ll see a 20 second countdown) and log back in. This will take you back to stage 1 and simply rinse and repeat. You will only get a reward once per invasion, but the sole purpose of this, isn’t the rewards, it’s the extremely high XP you gain from killing the mobs and completing the stages. Be sure to know that the mobs scale to your level, but be very vigilant, pull too many on your own and you could find yourself ressing a lot. Try and get some XP potions and Heirlooms as they help, but not important!

A helpful addon; LegionInvasionTimer
This is an excellent addon, shows you where the invasions are taking place and how long left before they reset.

Okay, one more thing… Just a reminder, that due to Legion incoming, I wont be here a great deal, but please do follow me on Twitter to get regular updates and see what I’m buying and selling. I’m also available for questions too, rest assured, if I don’t have the answer, I’ll know someone who will.

Thanks for reading guys and stopping by, until next time… Goodbye  🙂

When A Trade Is Too Good To Be True…

So yesterday, 24/03/16 I was busy smelting Pyrite Ore into bars and in the very corner of my eye, I noticed in chat, that someone was eager to sell 8 pets, 7 of which were (TCG) Trading Card Game pets and 1 Hatespark of the Tiny. The person was demanding 750k gold and me thinking that was an extremely good offer to ignore, went into overdrive and quickly contacted the seller and purchased the pets without hesitation.

GM thank you - WOW 2

Thankfully, my excitement led me to posting my purchase on Twitter, obviously to boast (as you do). If you’re following me on Twitter, you’d have seen my tweets. Within minutes @RosheenWoW and @pee_lyon contacted me insisting that they maybe dupes. I’d not seen any evidence in-game for me to lead this to be the case, but now I was somewhat concerned. So without delay I contacted a (GMGame Master and I informed them of my naivety and wanted them to look into it. Today I finally got a reply, one of which kind of threw me back, as I was warned I may lose my gold and all pets returned to their rightful owner if they’ve been exploited. I quickly replied, insisting that they need to look into this as soon as possible, as my full intentions were to buy pets cheap to flip on the Auction House to make a profit and the last thing I wanted to do was jeopardise my gold and someone else’s pets for my own gain and make this matter far worse than it already was.

Within an hour a GM called Fairgano got back to me and we went into great detail of what happened yesterday and thankfully it was brought to my attention, that these were in fact stolen from someone’s Guild Bank and maliciously sold in trade. Now being a victim of having items stolen in-game myself through hacking, I could relate to this and was extremely pleased that the pets could be reunited with their rightful owner. Thankfully my gold was returned to me too, but had it been a different GM, it could quite easily have been the opposite. All the same, I learnt a very important lesson today and hopefully I’ll be more vigilant when trading in the future.

GM thank you - WOW

The GM Fairgano, also knew I was a collector and avid seller of battle pets and actually sent me a private in-game message with some pet treats in. This was a very nice gesture and one which made me giggle. Little minds and all…lol.

GM thank you - WOW 1

It’s a sad time, when there’s players out there, willing to ruin another players enjoyment, by stealing their hard earned items, for their short gains and to make matters worse, bring innocent people into the equation via trade. The morale of all this as the title of the post states, “If it’s too good to be true, it very likely is!” Heed caution and if you do have any concerns, always get in touch with a GM by opening a ticket. I was obviously embarrassed by all of this, but the result is what was important and thankfully on this occasion, everyone has their items and gold back and the culprits have been caught and their accounts closed. The problem is, with World of Warcraft easily accessible now, via offers, it’s easy to just open a new account, just to make another person’s game time a misery and so the merry-go-round continues.

Anyway, thanks for reading and be vigilant out there…
