[OFFICIAL] Adopting Battle Pets

Post by Wakamaru » April 14th, 2015, 12:04 pm


We're super excited that you are interested in adopting battle pets from A3! Please take a moment to read through the helpful sections below and you'll be ready to adopt your first pet! If you have any questions you can ask in the Help Section of the forum or in the #support channel on Discord.
STEP 1: Getting Started
1.1 Basic Requirements 1.2 Core Adoption Rules
  • You must NEED a pet in order to adopt it. We define NEED as not already owning.
  • You may adopt 1 pet from each bank tab each week; for a total of 12 possible adoptions.
  • Different pet breeds ARE NOT considered to be different pets. You can however request a specific breed if you see it in the guild bank.
The reason for these rules is that our pet inventory is not limitless! We want to be able to help as many members fill out their collections as we can. As such it's important that you don't adopt pets that you already have.
STEP 2: The Adoption Process
2.1 How To Request Pets
  • Log into your WoW account and log onto your A3 nursery guild characters.
  • Open the guild banks.
  • Determine which pets you do not own yet.
  • Make a list, by bank tab.
  • Post a list of adoptions for each bank tab in the adoption forum.
Post your adoption requests in the Adoption Forum.

Even though you are limited to 1 pet per tab per week, we encourage you to request as many as you can in case we run out of stock of something.

2.2 Denied Requests
There are two factors that may result in a denied adoption request.
  • Requesting a pet that you already own may result in that tab's request being denied. If there is another pet in the list that can be sent, it will be sent instead. However, if you only request one pet and that pet is a duplicate, the request will be denied.
  • If we completely run out of stock for your entire list, the request will be denied. There is nothing we can do about this.
If one (or all) of your requests are denied you cannot resubmit it in the current week. You will have to wait until the next week to try again.

2.3 Adoption Week
Adoptions are open Monday through Friday (US). Adoptions are closed on Saturday, Sunday, some holidays, and during team breaks. Announcements for holidays and breaks are always posted in the newsletter.

Adoptable pets are stocked on Monday. Adoptions are generally sent on Wednesday and/or Friday.
STEP 3: Getting Help
If you:
  • Need to make changes to your request
  • Need to remove a request
  • Are missing an adopted pet
  • Are dazed and confused
Please reach out to us! You can ask for help in the Help Section of the forum or in the #support channel on Discord.
