27.06.2019 - Patch 8.2 and Pet Update Issues

The patch is live and with it the usual suspects - API problems ^^
Importing or updating your pet collection from the armory currently returns zero pets. This is an issue on Blizzards side and we'll need to wait until it's been addressed.
In the meanwhile, it's the perfect opportunity to build some better error messages in so you know what's going on when trying to update your collection :-)



03.05.2019 - New Guides!

In the last weeks, Xu-Fu got a lot of additional help, both from veteran Xu-Fu collaborators and new people. Most of the work has been put into guides and they are definitely worth a shout-out here.
One by one, the page now hosts:

Pet Powerleveling Guide
Written by Nyari and translated by Shenk, this guide explains in detail where and how to level up your pets in the most efficient ways possible, from Super-Squirt days all the way to great farming spots for wild pet battles.

Most used PvE Pets
Another addition by Nyari, a Tier list of pets depending on how often they are used in PvE strategies (against tamers or pet challenges). While not strictly necessary, the top spots on this list make a great shopping list for new battlers to be able and beat many different fights very quickly.

New PvP guide
The PvP section also got a lot of love by Shenk and Rosqo.
In this article, you will find detailed information about the most common team setups and strategies, as well as concrete team suggestions. This new article also allows you to add your own PvP teams if you like :-)

TD and Rematch Guides
We already had a guide on how TD scripts work and how to write them, written by Wazzak and Celellach.
Nyari and Shenk now followed up on this with a guide on how to use Rematch + TD Scripts.
And on the matter of TD Scripts, if you feel like trying your hands on writing them but feel stuck or just have a question, jump onto our Discord and we're happy to help! It's not too difficult and you don't need any programming knowledge to understand how it works and put your own scripts together :-)

Big thanks to the authors for their work on these articles!



01.04.2019 - Legendary A.P.E.X.

The recent maintenance paved the way for some big changes on Xu-Fu’s Pet Guides. If you joined us on Discord, you will have seen the beginnings of it already. Now it’s time to unveil the big news: Xu-Fu is going to transform from a page dedicated solely to providing the best strategies, to becoming the best pet trading platform on this planet!

We are going to introduce tools for you to compare collections, find compatible trading partners, offer up pets for others and to look for people who could give you a specific pet you might still be missing.
But we are not stopping there! We are already partnering up with other games to promote cross-trading, and once our user base is broad enough, ultimately offer the very same services for your beloved real life pets! Just imagine being able to trade your collection of Iron Starlettes for a cute puppy, with only a few clicks!

It truly is an exciting time, and to make all of this more obvious to each visitor, we are going to do a full rebrand.
Even though Xu-Fu lasted us a long time as a mascot, from this day onward, we will embrace the new direction with a title and logo:

All Pets, Excel and Xchange
Or in short: A.P.E.X.

What can I say, it will be truly Legendary!



29.03.2019 - The Pet Moocher

Activity has picked up on Xu-Fu and I’m really excited to introduce you to the latest addition in pet collection tools: The Pet Moocher! Not an April fools joke, it’s a real thing!
Ever wanted to compare your collection to someone else for any duplicate, cageable pets you can trade between each other? Or maybe just be selfish and see which ones you could mooch from someone else? That doesn’t have to be a tedious task with lists and formulas, enter the Pet Moocher!

Sounds like a bad commercial, I know, but it is pretty sweet! So, how does it work? It’s not a tool here on the page but over at Xu-Fu’s Discord channel. Once you’re in (you need a Discord account for that, but that’s free as well), just head over to the channel trade-eu or trade-us and read the instructions. It’s super easy to use, you just enter your own character name + realm and those of another player, and within seconds the Pet Moocher will tell you something like this:

Yuvilee has 2 tradeable Pets, that Aranesh does not own:
Bananas, Thistleleaf Adventurer


Neat! Give it a try, and please join me in thanking Shepard for creating this awesome tool :-)



03.03.2019 - PvP updates with a welcome to Shenk!

Pet battle PvP has never been my strong suit, making me rely entirely on other people to provide content for this part of the pet battling world. The latest newcomer to the Xu-Fu team kindly offered to provide his knowledge on that, admittedly lacking, part of the page: Welcome to Shenk!

The first new section up is focusing on the achievement Family Brawler, providing teams for every family right there, but you are of course more than welcome to add your own teams and ideas or leave comments.



13.02.2019 - Welcome and thanks Schlumpf!

Long time no proper announcement, it’s time to change that! And not just because WoW just turned 14 in Europe - Congrats to that!

But there is another thing that’s overdue to mention:
For a couple of weeks now, Xu-Fu has seen some immense improvements. Most notably in loading times, which are reduced drastically, but there have been changes in the background in most areas that make the page faster, more flexible and more secure. All of that is thanks to Schlumpf!

Piece by piece he has worked through my own code and optimised it, changed it or replaced it with much better versions. I am immensely grateful for all the help and wanted to make sure that it’s known who you need to thank for all the recent improvements.



14.10.2018 - So Many News!

In the last weeks I had much personal stuff to do, but today was reserved for Xu-Fu and was able to catch up with a lot of stuff! The list is longer than usual, hang tight ^^

1. Giveaway winner
Sadly Machiavelli never claimed his Cap’n Crackers, so I had to draw yet another winner. This time it goes to:

SeiriCerin#2343 as shown in this super cute image!
Please get back to me within 2 days to grab your loot code :-)

2. New addition to the team
Not exactly “new”, Jagûar has been around for a long time and worked very hard to get the entire Falcosaur strategy section up and filled with strategies! Strategy Curator is only a logical next step. Welcome to the team (again^^)!

3. Patch 8.1 Preparation
The next patch brings a new pet battle dungeon: Gnomeregan, as well as a new family achievement. Family Battler! Both sections are set up and can be filled with strategies already.

4. New alternatives sorting
A tiny change, but it will have some obvious effects. I made a tiny tweak to the sorting of alternatives.
Before:
Favourite > Pets in Collection > Tags > Average Rating
Now:
Favourite > Pets in Collection > Average Rating > Tags

Having tags overrule the rating had some weird effects, and with the rating and favourite system being used widely now, it makes more sense to swap this around. Sorry for any confusion this might cause now!

5. Hazelnutty’s videos
Long established in the pet battling world, Hazelnutty is putting out some awesome videos that I can only recommend.
Very recently she published a video with her best tips and tricks for BfA pet battling, including some very nice words about Xu-Fu!
It’s only appropriate to return the favour, so go watch the video and ideally her channel, it’s worth it for every pet battler:
Watch the video

6. More absence, oh no.
Last but not least I have another personal note. The last two weeks of October I will be almost entirely offline and there will not be much new coming from my side on Xu-Fu. That might stretch well into November - depending on how this “real life” thing works out. But I’m not gone for good and will continue working on the page once I’m back! Promise :-)

Hazelnutty has saved me more than a few times. I only have one minor issue with her pet battle videos. They are 2-4 years ago and some of the moves have changed. She suggests moves that can no longer be used together. I still love them and I am a subscriber, just a little pet peeve of mine. Another great one is Lapz Gaming. He is simple and to the point. Sometimes his strategies are almost too easy. Love Xu-Fu's site, thanks for all your hard work.

I'm noticing that some pets are showing as not collected on strategy pages, when I do actually have them. My pet collection is up to date, and when I perform a search for it, it does appear on my pet collection page. I'm seeing them specifically today on the BFA Family Battler strats, but not sure if it is site wide or not.

Oooh, even within the BFA strats, the same pet is showing as not collected on one strat, and collected on another. Same pet, Snarly. This happened with another pet as well but I can't remember off the top of my head which one it was.

Hey! Could you check please if the pet is perhaps used in this strategy several times? That's a common thing then. If that's not the case, please tell me which strategies that is exactly and I'll have a look! Thanks!

Hi Aranesh! Is it possible that if it's an option in one of the other pet slots, but not the one selected specifically, that it shows as not collected? Let me see if I can locate the strats that I'm seeing it on :)

Captured Evil -- aquatic https://wow-petguide.com/index.php?Strategy=2815&Substitutes=3:26056

I have all four of the fishing daily pets, (Snarly/Toothy/Muckbreath/Chuck). Snarly (mine is lvl 1) is default chosen in the second slot, and shows as not collected ("Your pet: Missing") in slot 3, regardless of me selecting one of the other three fishing daily pets that is NOT Snarly in slot 2. I have a lvl 25 Toothy who I'd imagine should be default chosen in slot 2?

I'll look for the other battles where they use 2 of those four fishing daily pets and see if they all do it or not.

Jammer -- aquatic https://wow-petguide.com/index.php?Strategy=2864

It seems that if the pets are the first ones selected for x spot, that if they are options in any slot to the right, they are shown as not collected. If there is a pet autoselected in x slot to the right, it's *not* showing as not collected in the slot to the left. (I hope that's clear? The logic follows that in instances where this is happening from what I have specifically noted since I started looking for the logic pattern)

Also, my pet that is 25 of the 4 options available is not being autoselected for a space where it's an option, which I seem to remember not being the case before, I thought it always selected the 25 option? Is this change, perhaps, because pets automatically adjust in level to your pets, so it's not going to pick your 25 first? If that's the case...I'd kind of like the option to retain the ability to just select my 25s site-wide?

Hazelnutty has quickly become my favorite guide producer, couldn't have done Uldir without her. It's very information-dense, but I'd rather pause a few seconds to process everything, than listen to other guide makers ramble on about irrelevant stuff.
I'll check out her pet battle guides too!

Hazelnutty is a gift! I really like her videos for the same reasons, too! I just want to see what it looks like and know what it does in a short window of time, and she does exactly that. And she's enjoyable to listen to!

12.10.2018 - New winner Drawn!

It turns out that Pantonia already got the little Crackers and was kind enough to pass on, thank you very much for the honesty and friendliness!

That means I was able to draw a new winner from all submissions, aaaaand the lucky one is:

Machiavelli#2856 with his trusty Captain Snips!

Yarrrr! Congratultions, please check your messages to collect your prize :-)
