does anyone know whether or not the XP boost affects character's experience as well or just pet XP?
I think you mean before it caps in Patch 8.2 for Artifact Knowledge, not Patch 8.1.
if you mean "Sign of the Critter" is only for pet.
Pet Battle Bonus EventSquirt the Wandering Trainer is in the Garrison on Wednesday April 3rd, 2019 - EU realmsYou need only two fights to level a pet from lvl 1 to 25.Have a look at the comments page of Squirt for several pet leveling combos :-)
no, just pets. nothing extra to the player
@kortothThe pet trainers in the garrison have a fixed rotation. Tomorrow it's Squirt's turn, therefore it overlaps perfectly with the pet battle bonus event. But if you need it in writing, check out this thread. The next time both events overlap for EU should be on August 31, 2019 :)Edit: Found some typos and added a sentence...
Squirt will be up in the Garrison tomorrow, April 3rd!
