If you've never gotten very far in the world of WoW's battle pets -- and can't be bothered to run around the game world catching every last one -- this list from Adventures in Poor Taste helps you pick the ideal pets to get in the fight. Though some of the pets are only obtainable by higher level players -- like Pebble (who comes from Cataclysm dailies), Snarly (who comes from Burning Crusade dailies), and Anubisath Idol (who comes from a vanilla-era raid) -- players of all levels will find some useful advice here. And, of course, remember that some of these pets -- like the Terrible Turnip, which we're big fans of -- can be found on the auction house, too, if you've got the gold to spare.

So what are you waiting for? Go out and start your own battle pet collection with these heavy hitters.
