Love this one
I've been toying with pet battles but am such a noob when it comes to figuring out what works, vs. picking the cute and cuddly critters to send in to battle.
My only gripe, is subscribing now only shows the most recent 10 episodes. Going to the website to find the older ones, I've discovered not every episode is listed there.
Fun and informative
I'm so glad I found this podcast. I enjoyed WoW pet battling from the start but had no clue if I was "doing it right". Josh provides solid data about pet teams (win/loss records, etc) that give me some comfort that I'm not the only one who loses occasionally :) Well researched and professionally presented. I hope this show continues and the community grows.
Thank you so much for all this fantastic information!!! I just started doing pvp pet battles and was getting totally crushed and had no idea why laugh!! Now I understand am learning so much from your show ( still have not won a pvp battle but its closer now and not a total wipe lol)!!! Thank you!!! Tygranne NE DK Aerie Peak Server
