 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.

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!

      We get specific details and numbers for the upcoming trinket changes, as well as an explanation and specifics on the Crusade nerf, both coming tomorrow with the reset
      Still no exact stats for Convergence of Fates, but we get an idea of how it will end up in relation to specific specs and talents.
      Lore (source)
      In general, we’ve found that our tuning on trinkets which relied on a direct damage or healing effect (as opposed to their raw stats) have come up a bit short this expansion. To help address that, we’re making the following changes:
      Claw of the Crystalline Scorpid: Damage increased by 30%. Arcanogolem Digit: Damage increased by 30%. Entwined Elemental Foci: The amount of Critical Strike, Mastery, and Haste granted by this item’s proc has been increased by 5%. Might of Krosus: Base damage reduced by 25%, but is now always a critical strike. The tooltip for Might of Krosus will display the amount of damage that will result from the critical hit, not the base damage. Also fixed a bug where the cooldown was incorrectly being reduced if Might of Krosus damaged at least 3 targets. Draught of Souls: The Use effect of this trinket now respects the global cooldown. The damage of this trinket is now reduced by 30% for Unholy Death Knights (was reduced by 40%). Designer Notes: Since Draught of Souls deals Shadow Damage, it’s increased by Unholy’s Mastery, which means we needed to reduce its base damage to keep its overall value similar to other classes. It’s currently a little too low, however, so we’re increasing the damage it deals for Unholy. Icon of Rot: Damage increased by 40%. Pharamere's Forbidden Grimoire: Damage increased by 85%. Fury of the Burning Sky: Damage increased by 40%. Star Gate: Damage increased by 30%. Aluriel's Mirror: Healing-over-time amount increased by 140%. Detonation effect reduced by 35%. Designer Notes: Aluriel’s Mirror’s detonation effect is strong when it activates, but hard to rely on. We’re increasing the heal-over-time effect significantly to improve the up-front value of this trinket, and reducing the detonation effect slightly to compensate. Perfectly Preserved Cake: Absorb amount increased by 140%. Etraeus' Celestial Map: The amount of Critical Strike, Mastery, and Haste granted by this item’s proc has been increased by 5%.
      As for Convergence of Fates, we’re spending a little extra time to make sure our changes here are as comprehensive as possible, so we don’t have final numbers yet. However, we can share our overall plan for the changes we intend to make. We intend to reduce its base effectiveness (before talents) for Windwalkers, and increase its base effectiveness for Retribution Paladins and Frost and Unholy Death Knights. Separately, we plan to adjust its effectiveness individually for the following talents:
      Serenity (Windwalker) Crusade (Retribution Paladin) Incarnation: King of the Jungle (Feral Druid) Hungering Rune Weapon (Frost Death Knight) Dark Arbiter (Unholy Death Knight)
      We’re planning to make these changes with the next weekly restarts, alongside the release of Mythic Nighthold. Overall, this should make the trinkets in Nighthold more competitive with other trinkets available elsewhere in the expansion.

      And the Crusade nerf explanation:
      Sigma (source)
      We are definitely keenly aware that people feel better when we fix a problem by buffing something, rather than fixing it by nerfing something. If you look across classes and talent rows in 7.1.5, you'll see the great majority of balance issues were addressed by buffing underperforming talents. There are a few factors that go into this decision though, and it generally has to be handled on a case-by-case basis.
      One issue when balancing a lopsided talent row is whether we want the overall power of the spec to go slightly up or slightly down in the process. In the case of Retribution during our tuning adjustments for the opening of Nighthold, we intended to slightly nerf the topend performance of the spec (essentially, the performance of players stacking trinkets/relics/legendaries that all build around Crusade). I know there's no easy way to deliver that message, but hopefully it's at least worth clarifying that it's not some accident of how we chose to balance the L100 row. Players say "why couldn't we buff Divine Purpose instead of nerfing Crusade", for the very understandable reason that the former wouldn't have resulted in a slight DPS nerf. But we were conscious of the slight DPS nerf when we decided to do it this way.
      Another factor is that there are sometimes limits on how powerful we want an individual talent to be, regardless of balance within the row. Divine Purpose and Crusade are both very strong talents, that have a significant impact on the rotation and playstyle of the spec (and as mentioned, on gear/talent/relic/etc. decisions), even at their current strength. Balancing Retribution L100 at an even higher point would start causing more issues--Divine Purpose would allow strings of multiple free finishers very often, Crusade would continue to represent a majority of the spec's damage within a cooldown, and Holy Wrath would have to get even more bursty to try to compete with the other two. Sometimes we have to be careful about addressing all balance problems by buffing two talents up to match the highest one, because it can lead to a lot of power creep on the importance of a single talent to an entire DPS rotation.

      World Quests have had their rewards updated, demons are invading various parts of the Broken Shore and reputations with Legion factions beyond Exalted yield additional rewards.
      World Quests
      Had their rewards bumped up to item level 860+.

      Demon Assaults
      On PTRs, zones are periodically under attack and they switch every 3 hours, but it may be only to speed up testing. Once you zone in, you'll auto-accept the following quests if the zone you enter is under attack, for example Assault on Val'sharah. You have to complete 6 invasions in that area. Assaults are basically the same as World Quests. When a zone is invaded, no World Quests are available.
      An invasion is indicated by a big logo on the world map.

      Invasion quests also have different icons than regular World Quests.

      Demons are all over the place. You will be closing portals, killing various enemies including commanders.

      Flight Master Mount Change
      The flying mount used for transport across the Broken Shore has changed.


      Reputation Paragon
      If you've reached Exalted with Legion factions, every 20,000 additional reputation you'll get will award additional caches. We don't know if the caches have an increased chance to give you a Legendary or notable item upgrades, but let's hope the rewards are better, because you don't collect 20,000 reputation in the blink of an eye and getting an item level 835 that ends as a Chaos Crystal is all but rewarding. It's also worth noting that saving all reputation items for 7.2 isn't a bad idea as they will come in handy. Obtaining 10 caches rewards the Paragon of the Broken Isles achievement.
