Battle Pet Daily Tamer  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.3.0
by: Gello [More]
Battle Pet Daily Tamer puts a familiar paw on the world map to mark where daily pet tamers are that you have not completed for the day.

From the Map Options on the world map you can choose to selectively disable/enable paws for satchel dailies, non-satchel dailies, or beast of fable (legendary) dailies. From there you can also choose whether to show paws on the flight maps; and if you want to mark stables on the map as well.

Mousing over a tamer on the map will show the level of the tamer's pets and their types.

__ New in 1.3.0 __
  • Settings to turn paws on/off can also be found in the Interface Options Panel (for using this addon alongside others that take over the world map menu), in addition to the Map Options button on the world map.
  • For new users, paws are initially enabled for non-satchel and fable(legendary) dailies also.

The 5.3 patch introduced a 'Show Pet Tamers' option to the default UI, that will mark green paws on every satchel and non-satchel pet tamer on the world map. It's a great addition to the default UI. For many users it will be adequate enough that they will no longer need this addon. I highly recommend giving it a try (by disabling this addon if it's already installed, then checking 'Show Pet Tamers' on the world map) to see if it will suit you.

However, the default implementation continues to show the paws after the daily is completed, it doesn't differentiate between satchel and non-satchel tamers, and it doesn't support Beasts of Fable pets. So this addon will still continue to serve those roles.

I notice on the PTR now there's a "Show Pet Tamers" option added by Blizzard on the world map. It has a cvar ("showTamers") but little else looks implemented yet. Sounds like they're adding marks to the world map themselves. It will be pretty cool if they incorporate this into the default UI. Hopefully it will clear completed tamers too.

From GlobalStrings.lua:
OPTION_TOOLTIP_SHOW_BATTLE_PET_TAMERS_ON_MAP = "If enabled, you will be able to look at your map to see the locations of battle pet tamers."

Thanks, you rock and what an incredibly fast response! I am quite content with a .lua change if that is the way you choose to support it! I completely understand the desire to not have a configuration and that has actually been part of what I have loved about this add-on!

Yeah it can be done. I wanted to avoid having an options panel or slash commands, but maybe it can't hurt for set-once-and-forget stuff.

There'll be an update to this addon as we get closer to 5.3 release (Beast of Fable dailies are split into 3 quests). I'll have something for this in that update if not sooner.

1.1.8 just posted should fix the orange paws on all non-English clients. Sorry that took so long despite it being a simple fix (instead of indexing by objective name, it indexes by quest id:objective #).

The tooltips will be English still. I have an idea how to get the tooltips to learn their localization but it'd be for a future update.

I'll install a language pack this week and see about getting it ready for localization. I may be able to get by with numbered objectives too so no localization is needed.
I think the concern is about detecting if the daily is in the quest log or not as there's no problem with older tamers.

fortunately it's a quest, so tamers are shown on the map like a classic quest obective

New one just posted has the orange paws now. I'm not totally satisfied with the color of the orange. I wanted to use the in-game paw's 0xffd200 but it was too hard to see in the map. So it uses 0xff8000 like the legendary names. I'll probably revisit the paw graphic someday and brighten it a bit so it has a greater contrast.

Also if anyone has a strong desire to be able to selectively turn off green paws independent of the others let me know. I'll probably just have the green paw do that and not act as a global on/off switch. If a paw is in the way of something on the map it's probably obvious which paw to disable so you can see what's underneath.

And finally, for non-English users (if there's any), the fable quests paws will remain up for as long as you have the quest. But of course you can turn them off if it's annoying. I can localize this easily if you post precisely what the 10 quest objectives are. For instance in German it may be "Erobern No-No". If there ends up being any non-English users I can easily create a localization file.

Yeah there's definite demand, and after doing the dailies again I can see how it'd be useful to have them all up instead of relying on the quest objective to pick one for you.

I'll add orange paws this weekend.

I'd like to second the request for optional orange paws for the same reason. the default UI only marks one per zone and there's two in most zones, so having them all marked at the same time (and especially on the zoomed out continent map) will be a great help with route planning

Please add orange paws

I would like to request that you please add the orange paws to the map asap. You can leave them as an option if folks do not want the clutter but the paws are actually one of the main reasons I like your addon.

Your addon is particularly useful for me as I tend to do my pet dailies across multiple characters and interleaved with other activities. Seeing them on the map allows me to schedule my travel more efficiently. Seeing the orange paws will help to make it so I can schedule that travel, and helps me if I forgot one that I had done that day, or worse, on previous days.

Thank you for the great addon.

The update posted today (1.1.6) adds a paw just for Sara Finkleswitch of Gentle San. I had intended to put a yellow paw to mark the 10 epic pets (while you have the quest in your log), but in practice the default quest objectives already point you there somewhat and I think another 10 paws on Pandaria may make the map a bit too cluttered. But again, may add it as an option like the non-satchel dailies.
