Hi, I notice something when looking around one of Petopia's features and that is the list for "Unique Rare Pets."
I was looking at the list and realized that it was a bit outdated. I know it's not one of the most important features in Petopia, but I fill it needs to be addressed. I have a list of CURRENT pets available that are not on the list that should be on the list and a few THAT ARE on the list that shouldn't be.

Pets that should be on the list:

Basilisks:
Ironeye the Invincible (Black Basilisk w/Blue Fringes)
Hissperak (Black Basilisk w/Purple Fringes)
Scale Belly (Blue Basilisk w/Purple Fringes)
Deatheye (Burgundy Basilisk w/Purple Fringes)
Rockhide the Immovable (Purple Basilisk w/Blue Fringes)
Hellgazer (Yellow Basilisk w/Purple Fringes)

Cats:
Skarr (Hunched Black Gem Cat)

Clefthooves
Reassigned Warbeast (Saddled Red Draenor Clefthoof)

Crabs:
Karkin (Gem Crab)

Hydras:
Trigore the Lasher (Red Hydra)

Mechanicals
Optimo (Red-Blue Mechanostrider)

Scalehides
Thunderstomp (Light Green Stedogon)

Water Striders:
Glimmer (Red Armored Water Strider)
Hexapos (White Fen Strider)

Pets that are no longer unique anymore:

Hogzilla (Armored Grey Boar) Reason: Shares the same skin with "Battle Boar".
Ashtail (Grey Fox) Reason: Shares the same skin with "Snowfoot Fox" and "Mana-Infused Bushtail".
Stompy (Grey Goat) Reason: Shares the same skin with "Highpeak Goat" and "Silvertail Mountain Goat".
Bristlespine (Blue Porcupine) Reason: Shares the same skin with "Leytouched Cliffquill".
Great Turtle Furyshell (Red Spiked Dragon Turtle) Reason: Shares the same skin with "Coastal Snapper".

DISCLAIMER: IF THIS IS BEING UPDATED AS I POST THIS. I AM SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE. I WILL DELETE THIS POST IF SO OR ONCE IT IS UPDATED.

Thank you, have a nice day!

Thanks for those! What I may do, now that we've changed to using php, is devise a dynamic system so it can query the database and update it every time you view it. That way anything new will also be caught.

To add to that note, maybe the two maggots that were briefly tamable should be added to the "retired" section as well?

Cool, good to know. I'll probably make another post about the next update once Legion comes out.

I've already notice 3 of them no longer being unique anymore. :cry:

2 of them being on the list I made. :lol:

The missing retired maggots are on the page now.

The unusual and rare/unique looks pages need more work. I'm having trouble crafting the right SQL query :P

I also personally would like to see a "Unique Non-rare pets" feature. Pets like Shango and Winna's Kitten, singular pets like those. Not pets that are multiples of like the most of the frostsaber cats in Winterspring. But hey that's just me.

I think there's already a page that is supposed to do that, but it's as out of date as the other page. :/

I have a version that works and builds the data dynamically from the database, but it's a bit costly in server time and I'm trying to make it more efficient.

Currently trying to update the list that I made. I'm also not sure if the classic rare bears count.

P.S. I wouldn't mine making the list for the "Unique Non-Rare Pets". ;)

When I fix the page up it should automatically generate the page from the database so there shouldn't be a need for manual lists any more :)

I hope these are now fixed. Please let me know if you find anything missing.

Unique looks:
http://www.wow-petopia.com/browse.php?id=looks
(I changed this to be one NPC only, originally it said the look could appear on one or two different NPCs)

Unique looks that are also rare:
http://www.wow-petopia.com/browse.php?id=collector


As you can see, the number of looks that are found only on one NPC has skyrocketed. This is almost entirely due to Jeremy Feasel's work (and now our new lurker, Shem's work) over the years, in getting so many unused looks into the game.

In a way, however, it makes unique looks not so unique, because there really are so many! But I'll leave the pages in for now.

The list seems pretty legit to me. Nothing on this is missing currently. Thank you so much for updating it (evening though you were probably going to do it either way). :headbang:

P.S. A moment of silence for Ashtail, Bristlespine, and Stompy. Those were the only pets of those three families with a unique skin. :cry:

Thanks :) If you hadn't pointed out those pages it may have been ages before I realized they were out of date. At least now they should automatically remain up to date.

Sorry for the long reply but Thank you for all of your hard work.
Most of my stable is filled with pets like these so I kinda care that the page gets up to date.

That being said though there are still just a few more that are missing currently.
Birds of Prey: Olm the Wise
Carrion Birds: Zaricotl
Chimaera: The Evalcharr

This last one may or may not be included because we are still uncertain about the other ones but
Feathermanes: Sorrow Wing

I would also like to mention that Wolves: Warg shares the same model with Old Cliff Jumper, so he is OFF of the list.

Anyway whenever you have the time, I would really be appreciate you to fix these changes.

Thank You and have a nice day!

Thanks for those :) I really appreciate the feedback. I'll have a look a bit later and work out why they aren't appearing :)

Those are hopefully fixed now. Most of it was do to an old quirk of the database which is now fixed. There may have been other things missing too.

Thanks again for your report :)

No problem, I'll try to report any other things that need to be fixed. As a matter of fact why is the "Ghost" look for the Coyotes in the Wolf section considered tameable? Shouldn't that be in the untameable section?

Fixed, thanks. The problem is that one (and the purple nether wolf in Draenor, and a few other things) are in both the spirit beast section and the wolf section and they're tameable in one and not the other. Part of me is tempted to just delete them from the wolf section, but I think instead I'll keep them in place, but instead create a new status for "tameable but only in a different family".
