No experience multiplier for Elite Battle Pets, working as intended

Ka'wi the Gorger - Elite Battle Pets

I started my Beasts of Fable quest line for the first time after 5.2 went live and was curious about how much experience a low level pet would receive when defeating an Elite Battle Pet. I was pretty excited. Would my newbie little Crawling Claw instantly complete most of his leveling journey?


He earned 224 XP. Which, in the scope of battle pet leveling, is peanuts. Not even worth bringing a low level battle pet in to soak experience. But these are Elite Battle Pets! What's the dealio? Could it be a bug? I took to Twitter to find out, and was pleasantly surprised to receive an answer from Lead Content Designer Cory "Mumper" Stockton.

So, we should just stick to power leveling battle pets elsewhere. At least we have a great chance to earn rare Battle-Stones and cute pandas while plowing through the Beasts of Fable.

Patch 5.2 Beasts of Fable and Elite Battle Pet walkthrough

Patch 5.2 brings pet battlers a few excellent quality-of-life changes, as well as a few new battle pets to collect. But what really stands are the new Elite Battle Pets and quest line: Beasts of Fable.

Scattered about Pandaria, the ten Elites are battle pets with an above average health pool -- the lowest I found to be 4,066, highest at 4,378 -- and present a unique challenge to any aspiring master tamer. They're strong enough to take on your team solo, so be prepared. Initially, I was intimidated by the large health pool and strong stats, but liked the idea of putting together a team hand-picked to take on each Elite.

Start off by grabbing the Beasts of Fable quest from Gentle San or Sara Finkleswitch, the Battle Pet Trainer in either Shrine of Two Moons or Shrine of Seven Stars, respectively. The adorable Red Panda awaits as your reward, and there's a chance at multiple Lesser Charms of Fortune for every Elite Battle Pet defeated.
