Family Battler

Quick Info:

Last updated 2020-11-17

Keeping in style with previous achievements, patch 8.1 brings a new family challenge: Family Battler

The achievement is made out of 10 sub-achievements, each asking you to complete 15 Battle for Azeroth world quests with pets from a specific family only.
Since there are more than 15 world quests possible, you can pick and choose which ones to finish with each family.

Update with Patch 8.2
Since a recent change, the tamers can be fought repeatedly even if their world quest is not currently up! That means you can go through each tamer and family one after the next without having to stop.
Kudos to Terrace for spotting it!
Xu-Fu can scan this section for the most suitable strategies according to your preferences and show the required pets.
Pick a family below to check which pets you need.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but the pet collection import doesn't seem to be working properly; I have 551 pets at max and the collection only shows 440, even after several logs and refreshes. It's making the pet checker here screwy. Import is working fine over on WarcraftPets, so I imagine it must be an issue with the updater here.

Hey! Just had a look at your collection and it appears to be showing correctly now. Or do you still have this issue?

My Chitterspine Skitterling, which is a blue 25, still isn't registering in the requirements list for Fel Beasts of Argus at all, but the rest seem to be appearing. I didn't realize the pet only counts as maximized if it's a fully leveled rare (edited)

These strats are tested for Blue 25s. If yours is not a fully leveled rare, there is no reason to believe it will work, so I would say any such should not be incuded in a pet checker.

It would be helpful if the tamers names were listed with (or instead of) the battle name since the achievements have the tamer names.

yes, I already gave them a notice that I would like to see the tamers names too or a mouseover with the tamers name. They were already working on making that come true is what they told me ^^

yeeeeeh... I keep pushing it back in priority. Sorry!!
I'll move it up a bit in my todo list. With the new pet tables out of the way I can spend some time focusing on bug fixing and smaller quality of life improvements again :-)

It'll not be before next week, though. Work is keeping me super busy during the days and I'm spending the weekend away in nature, without a computer :D

Thanks for the nudge, though!

Can the new pet table on this page also be updated to show the tamer name instead of the quest name? That would be really helpful. Amazing tool - thanks!

The flying one seems to be the easiest one. You can do a lot of it with just Direbeak, Ikky and Foulfeather. So I'll probably focus on that since I don't have a lot of other pets

Is there anything out there like the ready checker for Legion that lets you know what pets you need to complete this?

i was browsing the achievement on Wowhead and came across a post by Terminton that helped me ALOT. He shares a pastebin link with all 150 teams, so all we've got to do is import it to rematch.
Here's the link https://pastebin.com/Fg4MYguM
And the link to the thread https://www.wowhead.com/achievement=13279/family-battler#comments:id=2870903

Again, all credit goes to Terminton !!

Sorry for being dumb, but how the hell do you use a Pastebin. This is brand new to me. Where do you "import" it to?

You must have the Rematch addon for this. If you don't, go to curseforge.com and install it.

1. Open the Pastebin link https://pastebin.com/Fg4MYguM
2. Highlight and Copy all the text.
3. Open Rematch window.
4. Choose Teams tab.
5. Choose Import Teams
6. Paste the text you copied. I think you then have to confirm "OK"

trying to load that Rematch pastebin crashed WoW. don't know if it was the size or not but there was a spinning progress circle that ran for a while before the crash. I did install the Family Familiar Helper before trying to import the teams from pastebin.

WoW. Well then copy the pastebin to Notepad. Then just sslect and copy a bit of it (now long a bit? I don't know. Try maybe 20-30 lines at a time) and do the Import Teams with that much. Then select the next 20-30 lines and go again.

I just did a WQ tamer and followed up with two additional families after the initial one. And didn't get credit for the last two families. So is this a glitch or something?

usually when this happens to me, be sure to double and triple check that every single pet in your team is the correct family. sometimes it seems like a pet should be in the correct family, but it really isn't. also, make sure you or your addon isnt sticking a level pet into the strat by accident. that has happened to me in the past also. i only needed one or two pets to beat the tamer so i didnt even notice that the third slot was the wrong pet type. good luck. let us know!

i've had that happen when I accidentally had a level 24 pet in the lineup. ALL pets have to be 25!!!!!

I second Bunnies reply. I did not get credit for the fights on some occasions either and found out it was because not all my pets (in the correct family) were level 25.

curious how you all take this on. Do you focus say on one tamer and go through all the families until that one tamer is done or do you go with a family of pets first and travel around until that family is done?

I choose a zone, and do all the tamers in that zone. When I'm fighting a tamer, I do each family before moving on to the next tamer.

assuming you have the roster, definitely just run through all the families while you are at the trainer.. i imagine it would be quite time consuming and inefficient to travel that circuit ten times if you were to them one family at a time. there are other reasons also, like spotting weaknesses in your roster, missing pets to target, or maybe just determine that you should skip a certain family for a specific trainer altogether.

Yeah thats how i go about these type of achs as well, go to a zone, pick a tamer, rotate the 10 families through, next tamer in that zone. Zone done -> next until achs pops. Got full roster, not doing dailies anyway, so its a one-time project thing.

I got kind of burned out on pet battles doing Family Familiar back in Legion, so I don't have the energy to complete a tamer in one go. I go to a tamer who's up as a world quest that day and do a couple of families. It will take me longer to finish, but at a more tolerable pace.

I'm with Zuckerguss on this one - I'm in no rush, so just do a couple of the whichever world quests are up each day for the achieve, and maybe a few that reward battle stones or pet charms and move on to do other things. I'm still building up my pet teams so if I don't have a team I might come back to the fight at a later stage when I have enough charms to buy an upgrade stone, or see if I have an alternative team - either way I'm having loads of fun, and can see merit to doing all the tamers in a zone as well which means not going back there as other posts have mentioned.

If you haven't looked it up, there's an addon Family Familiar Helper. It keeps this name because it started as one, but it includes all other Family X achievements including the newest one. It was created by the very Rematch's author, Gello, and he took a time during Christmas Eve to update it for the newest iteration. ❤

Of course, spreadsheets are a cool thing to keep track outside the game, while the API still stays wonky. :)

I made a google docs spreadsheet for keeping track outside of the game, should anyone desire one :) Let me know if there's some quality-of-life change you might want added to it and I'll see what I can do (not super familiar with Sheets).
