Pet Theory
Version: 5.4.0-1.1.12
by: Torhal [More]
Improves upon the functionality of the PetJournal and information during Pet Battles and while wandering Azeroth.

Features
  • Clearly displays rarity for both enemy and friendly pets during Pet Battles
  • Shows which rarities and levels of Battle Pets have been captured in their tooltips and in Minimap tooltips.
  • Displays rarity color for pets in the PetJournal, and displays rarity for non-wild pets.
  • Displays a tooltip when hovering over pets in the PetJournal so you can easily see their passives, pros, and cons, without having to click on them first.
  • Allows sorting by name, level, power, speed, health, and type in either ascending or descending order.
  • Filter pets by zone.
  • Double-click a pet in the PetJournal to summon it.
5.2.0-1.1.11
- Bump ToC version to 50300.

5.2.0-1.1.11
- Fixed incorrect check for unknown pets.

5.2.0-1.1.10
- Bump ToC version to 50200.
- Cleanup, and color the names in the PetJournalPetCard by rarity.
- Updated API usage.
- Added item-to-NPC mappings for Hyacinth Macaw, Mr. Chilly, Sen'jin Fetish, and Lil' K.T. (thanks, sidji!)

5.0.5-1.1.9
- Added mappings for Wolpertinger's Tankard and Parrot Cage (Cockatiel)
- Fix zone filtering for zones with empty sub zone names.
- Might help to include AceDB-3.0 in the list of files to load. Oops.
- Give pets which are set as Favorite precedence in the sorted list.

5.0.5-1.1.8
- Fixed errors caused by the fact that FloatingBattlePetTooltip doesn't have an info_line (yet).
- More loading changes, to prevent errors.
- Don't just hide the PetJournalFilterButton and PetJournalListScrollFrame - completely remove their anchors as well so they cannot possibly show.
- Handle edge-case where zone name is nil (likely before the player is completely in the game) and added matching against the sub zone as well.

5.0.5-1.1.7
- Removed redundant information from Auction House tooltips.
- Fixed the ever-growing Auction House tooltip.
- Revamped loading and list handling logic.
- Don't color the pet level by quality - it can be hard to read when blue.
- Prevented the final (and invisible) list button from displaying a sticky tooltip when clicking on the Pet Journal tab.
- Treat all sort fields the same; check to see if one of the compared pets has a nil field and relegate to the end of the list. This ensures that sorting by, for example, primary stat will not mix pets without a primary in with those that do.

5.0.5-1.1.6
- Changed tooltip code to be sensible - no more overlapping FontStrings.
- Show the rarity color for the pet named in the release-confirmation popup.
- Disable the "Only Favorites" checkbox when turning off "Collected" - don't disable "Collected".

5.0.5-1.1.5
- Added filter/sorting persistence. Completely exit WoW before updating.
- Setting up hooks when Blizzard_PetJournal is already loaded would probably be a good idea…
- Added the ability to summon a pet on double-click of the list button.
- Check for nil rarity (only happens immediately after learning a pet).

5.0.5-1.1.4
- Properly remove/relocate pets in the registry when one is released.
- Repopulate the caches and list even when the PetJournal isn't visible...fixes issue where releasing/obtaining pets wasn't registering on the minimap and also causing Lua errors for pet rarity.
- Switch tooltip when hovering over a pet in the list to show one of its three abilities when pressing SHIFT, CTRL, or ALT.
- Widened the total/unique frame so the text will fit in other locales, and moved it to the bottom-center of the PetJournal.
- Fix display of known/unknown in tooltip of Battle Pets in the auction house.

5.0.5-1.1.3
- Don't allow the inserted text to overwrite the speed advantage text in the PetBattle tooltip.
- Minimized lines added to tooltips.
- Update the pet list when zoning so the list is correct if filtering by current zone.
- Set released pets as unowned.
- Make sure the Blizzard_PetJournal isn't already loaded before setting up UI elements.
- Changed calculation for max health stat weight.
- Reset the list scrollbar to the beginning when toggling Collected/Not Collected or the zone-only filters.
- Much improved filter handling.
- Restore generic sort fallback to hit level/descending before name/ascending.

5.0.5-1.1.2
- Added display for a pet's primary (highest) stat next to the level icon.
- Added ability to sort by primary stat.
- Fixed issue some people were having with tooltips suddenly appearing while the PetJournal was closed.
- Fixed issue where typing in a search query would produce erratic results in the list and make it seem as though no other pets existed for the tooltip output.

Excellent addon, includes all stuff a pet collector needs in one convenient package! Still I think BattlePetCount handles tooltips slightly better. For starters BattlePetCount shows if you own the pet on ALL tooltips including tooltips found in the AH. Info is just one line long and more easily readable in the mini map frame. Those two features alone make BattlePetCount preferable for handling tooltips but Pet Theory excels on all other departments (rarity of pets during a battle, journal improvements etc) in comparison to Pet Battle Quality Glow and PetJournal Enhanced. Maybe if you could revise the way you handle tooltips or give us options to reduce the clutter? Also the option to display unique number of pets collected next to pet count should be added in the next release

Thanks again for a wonderful addon!

I really like having all these features in one addon, however I would love to see the option to sort ascending or descending order. As is, it puts my lowest level/weakest/least favorite pets at the top and I can't find a way to reverse it.

Nice add-on. One thing missing that Pet Journal Enhanced has that your doesn't is the ability to show only pets in the current zone. I use that feature a lot to see what pets I am missing in the current zone.

Note this feature in PJE is a tad finicky because Blizzard is inconsistent with how it names the zones vs what it puts in the tool tip (which is how PJE filters from what I understand.)

Also when you sort by quality (my primary sort) your secondary sort is alphabetical. With PJE the secondary sort is level which I prefer. Perhaps the ability to specify secondary sort?

I do like it over Pet Battle Quality Glow.

That little arrow next to the Filters popup will reverse it.

Also the tooltip is messed up a bit when you are battling a pet on mouse over the current opponent health bar. Your info is displaying over the last lines of that tooltip

Could you add sorting by zone and also add number of unique pets to the pet journal please? Then I can stop using Pet Journal Enhanced completely.

The way you decided to handle AH tool tips is one good step in the right direction. Could you please do the exact same thing with the world and mini map tool tips? Or at least give us an option to either choose the more detailed (and clutter-y) format or the minimal and more easily readable one? For me, all you need to know is if you have the mini pet, how many of it and their quality all in one line much like how BattlePetCount handles this info.

Again thanks for your work. I'd rather have one addon that handles ALL my pet needs in one convenient suite than four different ones! Yours is just what a sensible pet collector needs and spot on for the job (sans those minor details ofc )!

Interesting bug

I found an interesting bug.

If you close the pet journal window with text in the search field the tool tip will not accurately show if you have the wild pet you are pointing at.

Example.

I search for rat in the pet journal.
I leave the word rat in the search field and close the journal.
I point at a rabbit and it shows I do not have a rabbit captured yet.
But, I do, in fact, have a rabbit in the journal.
So...I blank out the search field and close the journal again.
This time pointing at the same rabbit shows in the tool tip that I have one captured.

It appears the data used for the tool tip is dependent upon the search field results even if the journal is closed.

I thought the tool tip was broken or inconsistent until I realized this was happening.
I hope fixing this is a SMOP and not a Blizzard bug.


Love this addon....

Not actually a bug - unfortunately, it's an issue with the evil filter system for the PetJournal that I'll have a workaround for soon.

Would love for the journal sorting to stick instead of having to set it each time i login as well as be able to sort by both level and quality. Would also love to see the quality of a pet when i mouse over it on the minimap or in the field.

Having it "stick" is something I'm adding to (likely) the next release, as well as options. As for the quality/rarity of pets in the field, that is not possible.

After playing a bit with my low level monk, I realized that filtering/sorting by zone is absolutely essential. Questing in a zone and knowing what pets to catch while doing so, is a huge time and trouble saver! Adding this feature would make a lot of us very happy pandas (pun intended )

Awesome! Also, I like how you've highlighted things with the quality. Borders, Names, etc. But not the level numbers. The blue level numbers can be difficult on the eyes. Perhaps an option to turn this back to white? Love the highlighting everywhere else though. Great job and thanks for your reply.
