Can't start battle pet battles

#1AlarKharPosted 3/9/2013 4:18:33 AM
I got my first battle pet today... a cute green crane. The trainer gave me a mission, to find and battle another pet... but no matter what wild pet I go after, whether squirrel, fawn, frog or lamb, it keeps telling me that it "can't start pet battle". Am I doing something wrong?

Have you put the pet into your battle pet party?

...I think.
I opened the battle pet window, and there were a couple of areas, the "currently summoned" area and the one with three small windows, two of which currently locked, In the one open window there was my second pet, a walking log thing, that I switched with the crane. Not sure if there are OTHER battle windows, I looked all over for instructions and it gave me none.
Still no luck.

See Battle Pet Slots where the Scourged Whelpling etc. are? That is where you may need to drag your pets from the list on the left. If you've never touched pet battles, you should only have one slot, and will quickly unlock the other two as you level up/fight.

...I did.
My pets are there, and yet when I right-click on a Wild Pet the game gives me a "Can't start pets battle".

...let me guess, battlepet battles are for paying players only and I've been wasting your time - and mine.

But then, why even let trial players get a mission that they can't do?

Because the amount of work it would take to remove select quests from the game ONLY for trial users would be more time consuming than noting that you can't do it in the trial restrictions.
