tamers

These are all bloggers who devote most of their words to pets and pet battles. They may deviate to other topics on occasion, but they all have really solid advice for battling.

Feckless Leader – Ross is an experienced Tamer with some guides, mostly related to speedy pet leveling, in addition to gold capping talk and general WoW topics.

Memoirs Of A Pet Collector – Kaitz is a long-time pet battle blogger and one of the very first people to follow me back on Twitter, so you know she knows quality when she sees it.

Bubbles of Mischief – Cymre is a battling powerhouse, among other adventures. Really excellent pet screenshots and taming talk.

PvP Pet Battles – Discodoggy has a daily battle pet pvp series. Discusses comps and counters for PVP, plus a few one-off PVE guides as well. A must-read for anyone joining in for some Pet PvP.

Press 5 To Capture – Prolific and informative, Ratshag is worth a look.

Nik’s Pet Battles – A very thorough guide for newbies, Nik is working his way up through the levels.

Perks N Peeks – Quintessence is a very accomplished tamer and staff/moderator on warcraftpets.com.  Lots of timely news post updates and current discussion topics.

Pet Charge – Super D has lots of PVE strategies to explore.

All Pets Allowed – A new podcast all about pets, hosted by Strumpet with a weekly guest.

resources

Non-blog sites to help you on your taming journey.

Warcraft Pets – A fantastic forum and cataloging site, the community there is incredibly kind to beginners. I write a monthly article there with Quintessence as well, so no bias.

Wowhead – almost needs no introduction for anyone who plays WoW. Their pet and ability lookups are second to none, and they’re always expanding their user-generated guides too.

petsear.ch – a site which catalogs and compares pet stats, in a more direct way than WoWHead allows.

bloggers

These are people whose blogs I enjoy reading, even if they aren’t mostly battle pet related.

Did I miss your blog or podcast? Do you feel you should be granted Tamer status? Think I’m awful and don’t want to be associated with me in any way? Please contact me on Twitter or e-mail me about it, even if you only have a few posts.
