Pet Battles are fun. I can’t explain it. You can’t explain it. It’s fine, let’s move on. If you are into battling pets, especially those out in the wild, you’ll want to install the addon Battle Pet – Quality Notifier for World of Warcraft. Here is the official description of this addon from Curse:
Simply displays some information about the wild pet in your chat window.
Enough said, right? When you’re out flying around in the old world taking screenshots of your various transmog gear and how it looks in different light and environments, you can… What’s that? You don’t… fly around and… Yeah, I know, who would do that.
If you are out gearing up for your Mists of Pandaria raid, and you come across a pet that you might consider battling when nobody is looking, this addon will display the pet quality in your chat window. It will also tell you whether or not you own the pet, so you can consider whether or not you want to capture it.
As simple and awesome as this addon is, it will become obsolete with patch 5.1. Blizzard has already announced that tooltips will be added to the game that display additional information about battle pets out in the wild, while engaged in battle, and when viewing your pet journal. Until the patch drops, enjoy this enhancement to your battle pet UI.
