I wasn’t keen on doing the new PVP Pet Battles, even with the Stunted Direhorn as a reward and Trainer title but after reading about Tome and Luxy‘s experiences lately, I’ve been convinced to at least try them again. In fact, I’ve had the quest What We’ve Been Training For in my log since the patch went live but I wasn’t in any rush to do it. The last time I did one was back in October.
So tonight I queued up thinking it would be a while before I was called into my first match but was surprised to find a battle ready within a minute. Although I think I was more surprised to find a Flawless Battle-Stone as a reward from my first win but when I won the next few, I also received a Flawless Beast Battle-Stone and a Flawless Critter Battle-Stone. Wow, maybe I should have started these sooner. I must admit that once I started, it was easy to keep queuing until I had completed my quest granting me the Merciless Pet Brawler achievement. The queues continued to be fast but by the time I had won about six, I was interacting with more and more players so my win ratio started to slow down.
The Pet Treat from the reward bag worked out nicely since it added a 50% XP gain for an hour so I put it to good use during my usual pet tamers tonight. I can’t see myself doing Brutal Pet Brawler any time soon but I’ll see how I go.
