Battle Pets! Bragging Thread

While I work on mopping up what little of NaNo I got done this year (sick, sleep, more sick, more sleep... 8\ ), and work on compiling all the information I collected over the past month to update my other thread, I figured I might kick off a new thread in the meantime.

What's your success story? Your YES! moment?

This is my latest one.

"Perfect" breed ID, the unique skin for the Whelk, and rare-quality (click for bigger).

Funny how RNG decided to throw in two other "perfect" IDs (that I couldn't capture due to battle pet rules) that nearly whomped all three of my pets before the end. Ouch. At least it confirms my suspicion that you really can have 3 rare-quality pets pop up at once (to this point, I'd only ever seen same-rarity trios in poor/common/uncommon varieties). Given this is the first time I've ever seen this occur in the... 2? months that Mists has been out, I'd say that's not gonna happen again any time soon. Good thing, too, because man it hurt a little inside to kill the other two rares. :C

Edit: for those not using the addons I am that make rare-hunting easier, Rapana Whelk's "best" stat ID at rare-quality is around the 1318 health marker you saw there. It's "second-best" is... around 1434? I think. I can't remember 100%. Ignore any other health indicator, at any rate.

Battle Pet BreedID - shows a short-hand indication of the pet ID that corresponds to the chart found here and with Warla's chart found here.
Pet Theory - tooltip information, ranging from things like rarity of opponent and player teams, to how many of a pet has been captured, to what the rarity of pets in the journal are, etc.; actually gives quite a bit of info, detailed on the addon page
Pet Battle Quality Glow - displays rarity in the battle pet UI*

Not pictured, but pretty convenient to have nonetheless:
Battle Pet Tabs - allows up to 8 teams saved for easy toggling
Pet Tracker - shows all available pets in a zone on the player's map, where the general spawn points are (filtered based on several criteria such as "missing" or "not at max level," etc.), and displays opponent's abilities/their cooldowns

*will become a default/standard UI feature in 5.1

I have a rare-quality level 25 bandicoon.

I named him Socks.

I named him Socks.

... And then quickly moved on.

 

Lol. Awesome.

I have a rare Spawn of Onyxia, and some other pets. My favorite is my dead hawk from Andorhal. I named him Drumstick. My little Ancona chicken is doing exceptionally well for a common pet. He's not fast and tends to take damage like a wet paper bag, but he's got cluck! I've had my Ancona chicken since I started playing. Every raid he was there with me, dungeons, questing. I named him Cpt. Cluck and ended up using him as my good luck charm. He's now lvl 18 :D

Lol, Best moment was when Seashen told me that there were different quality of pets and if you hunted you can get them. I didn't know that. We went pet hunting for an evening (Which was hilariously fun) and I ran into a cockroach. I hate cockroaches. With a passion. But I didn't have one in my collection so I grudgingly battled it and began to ready myself for cockroach battles all night. Fate was with me and that first cockroach was my last. It was a rare!

I named it 'Eugh' and quickly moved on.

Perhaps today -is- a good day to die.

My rage at CRZ for stealing pets away is well established. I'd pretty much resigned myself to never finding a minfernal due to there being 20398405930453045834 horde in Shatter Scar Vale at any and all times of day. The only time I ever saw them was while flying over Felwood, then there'd be lots, then I'd land and the telltale sparkle of evil and soul crushing despair would snatch them away. 

Until I figured out that my -old- RP server uses a different set of servers for CRZ (that doesn't include MG or Farstriders or other fairly high pop servers). As a result, -their- CRZ is little different than WRA without CRZ, and after about a week, I managed to find one! And thankfully, it was green quality so I didn't feel compelled to keep hunting (if I get stuck with a white or gray I get a complex and have to keep looking for new ones.)

To date, that one lone minfernal is the -only- one I have ever seen in the wild. Period. Ever. (I was actually starting to think they were a lie.)
