 Find out how to grind out your pet charms to help your collection. This guide will allow to you to complete each garrison menagerie daily successfully while trying to keep the overall number of pets to a minimum.

PLEASE NOTE SINCE THE PREPATCH THE FIGHTS THAT USE PANDAREN WATER SPIRIT ARE NO LONGER VIABLE DUE TO CHANGES - I WILL BE LOOKING INTO NEW GUIDES FOR LEGION

Introduction


 
 
Although this is not specifically a gold making guide, I will refer to the pet menagerie dailies in some of my future posts.  Battle pets make up a large proportion of my gold income at this time and I use the garrison dailies to level up my pets and improve their quality as well.
 
Whether you are here just to level your pets, or to help in your gold making, the below will still be very useful to either level your pets quickly, or obtain achievement_guildperk_honorablemention.jPet Charm to help improve your collection.  This standalone guide will help gold makers and general pet battlers alike. 
 
I have tried to ensure that all the pets that are used below are fairly easy to obtain.  The following guide is intended for all players regardless of your experience with pet battles (even if you have never pet battled before you can get started fairly quickly).  
So if you are new to pet battles, do not have access to a wide range of pets, or you are a pet veteran, this guide should still be useful.
 
The majority of the pets that I use can be purchased at the auction house if you do not wish to farm for them.  Due to the fact you will use some of the pets for multiple encounters, those that you may have to purchase should be a good investment and you should get plenty of use out of them.
 
If you are unsure what is an acceptable amount to pay for a particular pet then visit https://wow-pets.com/.  This website (although not always fully accurate) will give new players at least some indication as to what a pet is roughly worth at both level 1 and level 25.
 
Please note that with all pet battles there are a large number of variations of completing them.  The pets and tactics I use below are meant to keep the total number of pets as low as possible. This means that although each individual encounter may not be the most efficient, the below methods should have 100% success rate without having to worry about RNG.
 
 

 

Getting Started


 
 
If you are brand new to pet battles and you are yet to unlock your menagerie I have a Youtube guide that can walk you through the initial quest chain HERE.
 
Please note the pets that I use to unlock the menagerie are pets that you will use for your dailies as well, so like I mentioned above if you do need to spend gold to buy them on the AH they will be a good investment.  Alternatively if you either can't afford to buy them or there are none available on your auction house, you can ask a friend to borrow their pets to unlock the menagerie then trade them back.
 
If you already have a number of pets at level 1 and you are wanting to level them up as fast as possible then use my power leveling guide HERE.  The method uses one of the garrison dailies, so be aware that it is only available once every 15 days.  Please note it is only this one daily quest that still offers experience to your pets!
 

 

 

 

 

Why should I complete the garrison pet dailies?


 
 
 Whether you are a pet collector or a gold maker the garrison pet dailies offer the quickest way to obtain your achievement_guildperk_honorablemention.jPet Charm.  These can be used to purchase a number of items that will either upgrade your pets increasing their levels and / or their quality), or purchase other pets.
 
At this time I use the garrison to level pets for both my own personal collection, and to level pets I wish to sell.  Having large amounts of pet charms will allow you to get your pets to level 25 and rare quality faster, so you can complete your collection or maximize your profits on the auction house.
 
Some of the daily quests only take 2 minutes to complete, so it shouldn't add too much time to your regular garrison routine.
 

 

 

 

 

What pets will I need?


 
 
The pets I use for the dailies are as follows:
 
For 14 of the 15 dailies I use only 8 pets:

 

  • Enchanted Broom is purchasable for 40xability_paladin_artofwar.jpgChampion's Seal Argent Tournament dailies (horde only) or you can buy it from the Black Market Auction House / Auction House.
  • Hydraling is contained in Varasha's Egg a reward from a rare mob event encounter 29,41 Spires of Arak (also available from the auction house).

The only daily quest which does not include the above pets is for Kromli & Gromli which can use any three spider pets (which are fairly easy to tame at high level from a number of zones).
 
The daily quest encounters follow a set round robin rotation which can be found in our menagerie guide HERE.  This means that each daily only appears once every 15 days.  
 
 

Strategies


 
 
i have listed each individual garrison daily quest below.  Each daily has an attached Youtube video that helps to explain each encounter and a list of moves you will need to complete them.

Wrap Up!


 
Hopefully you find these guides useful!  Like I have previously mentioned there are a wide variety of solutions to each pet daily, hopefully this will encourage you to do some of the more "difficult" ones and get those achievement_guildperk_honorablemention.jPet Charm!  
 
Try and do as many as you can, and keep an eye out for my future guides on battle pets, and how I utilise them to make gold!

awesome guide tyty

You're very welcome and I'm glad its useful!

It will need an update for Legion due to the incoming changes to the "Hwolbomb" technique so hopefully I can keep the total number of pets down!

Since the pre-patch Blizzard decided to nerf the "Howlbomb" strategy (it was OP so no real complaints from me.  The rewards have also been nerfed (each garrison daily can only be completed once per account and only rewards half of the pet charms (so 4-5 per day rather than 8-10 per character).

Due to the reward nerfs I don't feel it is worth the time to readjust this guide to meet the new changes.  Obviously WoWhead is a great resource for each fight if you wish to look for alternatives, but the intention of this guide was for players to mass earn pet charms with a small battle pet team.  With this no longer viable I would prefer to use my time preparing for other Legion battle pet encounters!

 

Good luck folks!

      The official WoW forums are getting a makeover, following suit with the Overwatch, HotS and BlizzCon ones! After an 8 hour maintenance tomorrow we'll be getting improved functionality including real time thread updates, the return of the Blizz tracker, infinite scroll for the threads, a new advanced search option, as well as new notification options and more!
      Forum Upgrades (source)
      As some of you may know, over the last several months we've been implementing new forums for a few of our titles, including Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm, as well as BlizzCon. These new forums allow you to more easily navigate current topics, encourage more constructive discussions, and reward positive contributions to the community.
      We are now ready for World of Warcraft to transition to these new forums. This Thursday, November 15, the current World of Warcraft forums will be going into maintenance starting at 8 AM Pacific. We estimate this process should take approximately 8 hours.
      Note: We will be migrating over any active threads from the last two weeks to allow ongoing community discussions to continue as seamlessly as possible. Once maintenance is complete, the old forums will remain available in read-only mode for the foreseeable future, so you’ll be able to easily reference back to anything that wasn’t automatically transferred to the new forums.
      Here’s a few of the new features we’re excited about:
      Tracking and Updates
      • The Blizz Tracker has returned to help you quickly find official posts
      • You can now easily find threads that you’ve previously viewed
      • Better text formatting
      • Threads now update in real time without needing to refresh
      • Threads now infinitely scroll – no more navigating page by page
      • The forums will also remember what you’ve read and where you left off!
      Sorting and Search
      • A new “Advanced Search” feature will make looking for older posts easier
      • You can now sort posts by “Top” or “Latest” with configurable timeframes.
      Notifications
      • You can now enable notifications for when you are tagged in posts and replies
      Flagging
      • The “report post” feature has been upgraded to a flagging system with multiple options
      In another blue post today, we've found out when exactly the new ring of Azerite powers will arrive in 8.1, and it's pretty much as expected: it's coming with the PvP Season start/raid opening in January.
      5th Azerite Ring Release Date (source)
      The fifth ring of Azerite Traits is definitely coming in Tides of Vengeance. You’ll see it on new gear when Season 2 begins, on the same day the Battle of Dazar’alor Raid opens in January. At that time, the item levels of rewards from dungeons, PvP, emissaries, Warfronts, and everything else that drops Azerite gear will go up, and all of the new Azerite gear from those endgame sources will have a fifth ring of Azerite Traits.
      In the next few weeks, we’ll advance the state of the PTR to test Season 2. You’ll then see the new ring on rewards, the new Mythic Keystone affix, and other content that’s coming with Season 2.

      War Mode has been improved recently, with a hotfix that will force a more even ratio of both factions present in each shard. While it's unclear when "some time ago" was exactly, this should help with the faction imbalance players have been encountering. It won't, however, be an instant nor absolute fix for the issue, as it still takes some time for the shard to balance itself out. There will also be more improvements coming with 8.1, including better rewards for the underrepresented faction in the shard.
      War Mode Faction Balance (source)
      Some time ago we made a hotfix to War Mode which enforces all War Mode shards that have both Alliance and Horde in them to have a stricter, more even ratio. We’ve been monitoring the results and so far we’ve noticed a significant improvement in “fair and balanced” shards. So much so that it’s safe to say that if you are Alliance, and you see Horde in the outdoor world in War Mode, you are a relatively even horde to alliance ratio shard. There are some rare exceptions, such as when a raid of 40 players enter a zone. It may take a bit for the “shard manager” to compensate and balance the shard.

      We do have some plans in store in Tides of Vengeance (Patch 8.1) to entice the underrepresented faction with greater rewards to increase participation and create more active Horde/Allianced mixed War Mode shards. The intent of those rewards is not to give the underrepresented faction some “compensation” for being outnumbered in a War Mode shard (since that really can’t happen anymore).

      We're also looking forward to what you all think about the Incursions in War Mode for 8.1, since it brings Horde and Alliance to the same location which should create some pretty fun skirmishes.

      It's time for more battles as raid testing returns this weekend (and Thursday)! Both factions get to check the bosses out, as well as the opposing faction's bosses using the new flashback mechanic. We're getting both Heroic and Mythic tested this time around, with the first wing of LFR opening on Friday and staying open throughout the weekend.
      November 15 - 19 (source)
      On Thursday, November 15th and Friday, November 16th we will be conducting raid tests of the Battle of Dazar'alor. After testing has ended up Friday, we will open the first wing of Raid Finder.
      BOTH FACTIONS:
      Testing is open for both factions. However, for some bosses, raid members will temporarily re-live events as the opposite faction using a story flashback.
      Thursday, November 15th
      Stormwall Blockade - Heroic Battle of Dazar'alor
      13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)
      Jaina - Heroic Battle of Dazar'alor
      14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)
      Friday, November 16th
      Opulence - Mythic Battle of Dazar'alor
      13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)
      King Rastakhan - Mythic Battle of Dazar'alor
      14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)
      Siege of Dazar'alor/Defense of Dazar'alor Raid Finder
      16:00 PST (19:00 EST, 1:00 CET)
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Zuldazar, Boralus, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade III in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 120 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

      In the latest Method interview, we learned how the new Reaping affix will play out in Tides of Vengeance.
      In Battle for Azeroth, Blizzard brought Seasons to Mythic+. Infested was the first Seasonal affix inspired by G'huun. The affix will be soon replaced with Reaping in Season 2 that will start early next year.
      Affix Description Reaping Non-boss enemies are empowered by Bwonsamdi and periodically seek vengeance from beyond the grave. How Reaping Works
      Reaping was inspired by Battle of Dazar'alor and Bwonsamdi. Every 20% on the Enemy forces bar, Bwonsamdi will resurrect spirits of all the trash creatures you had killed up to that point and they will charge at you no matter where you're at. This happens a total of 5 times per dungeon. You will be in full control of when this occurs, so planning/adjusting your pulls will be crucial. One of the ideas they had with this was to change how you approach the dungeon. Blood Moon will rise whenever Bwonsamdi calls on his powers and there's also something cool that might happen after you lose the timer. You can also check out the video below, where the devs talk about the affix and upcoming changes to Necrotic.

      It's time to poke our friends over at exceL and get some hints and tips for Mythic+! It's up to you guys to dig up all the interesting info and ask the right questions, whether it's about the recent MDI Invitational, Mythic+ in general or even next season's new Reaping affix!
      As you'll remember, they rose all the way to the top in this year's Mythic Dungeon Invitational and claimed the grand prize, as well as more recently participated in the MDI All Stars Invitational at BlizzCon earlier this month and the org itself has been a core part of the scene built around multiple games since 2014, fielding teams in League of Legends, Street Fighter V, and more.
      Tthe Mythic+ team consists of Divinefield, Cirra, Ashine, Dorullkjell and Herudra, so submit your questions right here in the comments over the next 7 days and the awesome players of exceL's Angels will answer when we collect all of them.
      Have any questions for the M+ team? Come and ask them!
