Isn't it an option to add a pet table like it's done for the dungeons and stuff?

Nice guide. Thank you very much for your work. After using it for awhile, I found it to be very useful and may I make a suggestion to link these pets with the pet collection imported. This way, I can immediately see which pet I dont have?

Right now the tooltips are from wowhead and I can't edit them, it's just a plugin they offer. It's planned for the (sadly bit far away future) to include this information:D

Nice job collating the current info!

This is spookily close to my T1 and T2 lists. Just a couple of differences, and the commonality I find most interesting is the number in each tier. There does seem to be a natural break after about 15 pets.

My suggestion is that this list badly needs suggested and preferred breeds, for any newcomer who might use it for guidance.

Yes, it is also very close to my Tier list, which I wrote in the German forum. :)

Breeds are unfortunately not included in the data. Of course I could copy it from my own Tier list, but then it would not be just the data anymore.

And while I know what is likely to be most beneficial, I do not know if that is actually what is most used.

For example, the Zandalari Raptors are probably the best in P/P and S/S, but I also know strategies where you need a P/B one.

That's a great point! I hadn't thought of that. While the site does allow for breed requirements, there are also other constraints like minimum speed or power that are hard or misleading to capture in a list derived from the data.

And indeed breed is not always so simple, and we do keep different breeds for different cases.

I'll drop in the survey answers for the species mentioned in these lists, as a comment, at least. I think it's safe to say that a newcomer will not regret choosing the most popular breed of a species.

Iron Starlette P/P(40%), P/S(23%), H/H(19%)
Zandalari Anklerender S/S(34%), P/P(34%), P/B(18%)

Unborn Val'kyr H/H(56%), B/B(44%)
Nexus Whelpling P/P(58%), P/S(25%), P/B(18%)
Shimmershell Snail H/P(58%), B/B(31%), H/H(12%)
Nether Faerie Dragon S/S(33%), P/P(27%), H/P(17%)
Kun-Lai Runt P/P(49%), P/S(35%), P/B(16%)
Zandalari Kneebiter S/S(45%), P/P(33%), P/S(18%)
Emperor Crab P/P(64%), H/H(36%)
