Mastering the Menagerie

This guide contains suggestions on how to beat the Menagerie daily pet battles. Each battle shows only one of many, many ways to complete it. I also make references to leveling pets that can be swapped in. Blizzard nerfed the XP from Menagerie fights significantly, so feel free to ignore those suggestions as it may not be worth it to you.
