 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!

      As expected we're getting a daily dose of hotfixes after the BfA launch and today's feature Azerite Gear traits getting tweaked, end of zone dungeon quest XP getting a significant increase, as well as a lot more profession and quest fixes.
      August 15 (source)
      Azerite Gear
      Fixed an issue where the Azerite Trait Reckless Flurry was incorrectly increasing ability damage, in addition to auto attack damage. 7th Legionnaire's Tunic and Honorbound Outrider's Vestments now correctly have an Outlaw Rogue trait. The extra Subtlety Rogue trait has been removed. Fixed an issue where the Azerite Trait Wild Fleshrending was not increasing the damage of Swipe for Guardian Druids. Dungeons
      Experience rewarded from end-of-zone dungeon quests has been greatly increased. Fixed an issue where players couldn't complete “Ecological Research” in The Temple of Sethraliss on Normal difficulty. Items
      Harlan's Loaded Dice now scales correctly with item level for its spells. Pet Battles
      Francois can now be properly summoned and used in Pet Battles by Alliance characters. Fixed a bug that prevented Peachy and Winkle from battling as intended.
        Professions
      Archaeology Fixed a bug that caused some digsites near Vigil Hill in Tiragarde Sound from providing fragments as intended. Blacksmithing Crafting the Stormsteel Spear recipe now creates the correct item. Mining Fixed a bug that prevented ore gathered in Kul'Tiras and Zandalar from being stored in certain bags, as intended. Quests
      Fixed a bug causing one of the Shadra Betrayers to evade during "The Ancient One". Fixed a bug that caused the Ancient Gong to sometimes become unusable during “Punishment of Tal’aman”. Fixed a bug that made Taelia disappear under rare circumstances on “The Old Knight”. It should be harder to get separated from Rastakhan on "The King's Gambit". “Mine Sweeper” is now easier to locate and obtain. Goblin Mine Technicians aren't the tidiest bunch and may have left an extra Cracked Mine Sweeper in the Saltstone Mine. Players who disconnect before turning in "Dress to Impress" should now be able to properly see Flynn in the Dead Man's Tale. Fixed an issue where players could move during "Rest in the Depths", breaking the channeled spell. The Island Expeditions quest “Notched Coin” can now be turned in to Mili Wanderbrew. On “Return to Gloom Hollow”, players should no longer be able to get into a state where Titan Keeper Hezrel will not move. Previous Patch 8.0.1 Hotfixes

      Gameinformer recently interviewed Game Director Ion Hazzikostas about how Blizzard maintains Warcraft lore. Did you know they had a team of WoW historians? Check out the highlights!
      Check out Gamenformer for the full interview!
      Interview Highlights
      Blizzard has a team of three lore scholars, Sean Copeland is the historian supervisor of the team. Their role is to field lore and research requests made by their internal dev teams, review publications, participate in creative sessions, and host lore seminars. WoW historians maintain language and pronunciation databases for specific phrases and terms. WoW covers plenty of languages: Eredun, Zandali, or Shath'yar (language of the Old Gods). One of the writers once requested pronunciation for the phrase: "Ak’agthshi ma uhnish, ak’uq shg’cul vwahuhn", which means "Our numbers are endless, our power beyond reckoning!" Alleria made a return in Patch 7.3 and it was up to the historians to track down every place where she was mentioned to ensure they don't do anything inconsistent. In Cataclysm, the final boss was Sinestra. They wanted a red dragon to come and join the players in the fight, ending with a sacrifice that would help players defeat the boss. It would have made sense to include Krasus in the encounter, but they realized he died in a book. Khadgar in the Warcraft Movie was much younger in the film than they had imagined him being at that point in time. In the Burning Crusade, he was depicted much older and had a long beard, so they decided to give him a new model. The goal with WoW Chronicles was to craft a cohesive and complelling guidebook that covers the entire history of the Warcraft universe. Copeland's team believes that continuity exists to enhance the story, not to tie the hands of creators.

      Embers of War is a new cinematic released by Blizzard to go with Battle for Azeroth. It's a combination of all cinematics previewed so far including Bwonsamdi, Jaina's return to Kul Tiras, the Horde intro to Zandalar, and the final Battle for Lordaeron cutscene.
      Lines have been drawn between the Horde and Alliance, loyalties tested, and the war between the factions has begun in earnest. The race is on to recruit new allies and gather a new powerful resource – Azerite. Will you heed the call of battle?

      We have another interesting interview with Principal Exterior Level Designer Gary Platner and In-game Cinematic Project Director Terran Gregory by VG247. Check out the highlights!
      Check out the full interview over at VG247.
      Interview Highlights
      Alex Afrasiabi designed Battle for Azeroth like it would be the last expansion; they didn't hold back, went for the mega, and seized the day on design. Terran is really sad that gnomes didn't make an appearance in the cinematics, but CGI has its limitations to how many characters can be created. Siege of Lordaeron included more characters than any other Blizzard CGI film before. It's Blizzard's mission to tell the most compelling and emotional story that they can. Making everyone enjoy the story in the same way is an impossible goal. With the release of Warbringers: Sylvanas, Horde players started to show their discontent. There's even been one extreme case of targeted harassment aimed at Christie Golden. Creating a story that revolves around an all-out war required bold decisions. They knew the reactions to the burning of Teldrassil would be passionate, but they did exceed their expectations. Storytelling is about highs and lows. Old Soldier would not have resonated so well without Warbringers: Sylvanas. WoW is a living, breathing game. The team's always looking for ways to improve it. They'll support WoW for as long as the players continue to give them support. From a story perspective, they wondered how great an end WoW would need to have. It's an evergreen franchise that they've maintained like a "carefully-tended bonsai tree."

      We have the inaugural hotfixes of Battle for Azeroth! We have a whole lot of quest fixes, including the inability to start second or third War Campaign Footholds, as well as mounts and dungeons getting a look.
      August 14 (source)
      Dungeons
      Temple of Sethraliss Fixed a bug that caused Avatar of Sethraliss to sometimes become inactive. Mounts
      Captured Dune Scavenger is now usable by both Horde and Alliance characters. Chewed-On Reins of the Terrified Pack Mule is now learnable and usable by Alliance characters. Quests
      The Nazmir quest "Poisoning the Brood" will now share credit to party members. The Targets for "A Wall of Iron" will now respawn more frequently. Players that were in the vicinity of, but did not get credit for killing Vilank'dor, will once again be able to complete the quest "To Sacrifice a Loa". Fixed an issue where too many enemies were participating in "Mojambo". Players should now be able to advance and complete "Devour Humanoid". “Adapting Our Tactics” can now be abandoned and re-accepted after selecting an upgrade to pursue Players who disconnect during “Rodrigo's Revenge” can now continue the quest. “The Last Witch Doctor of Krag'wa” will no longer talk to nearby players who are not on the quest. Crawgs in "Great Brewfest Kodo" will now respawn more frequently. Adjusted the range of the Seaforium Smoke Grenade on “Boom goes the Bomb” so that it can better go boom. Interacting with the Mysterious Brew during "Enforcing Fate" should now reliably grant credit. Fixed an issue that could cause players to be unable to select their second or third War Campaign Footholds. Players who had previously been stuck in this state may now interact with the scouting map near Halford or Nathanos to choose a Foothold. Previous Patch 8.0.1 Hotfixes
