Family Familiar
The achievement Family Familiar is the largest and toughest addition to the pet battling world in a long time. It might even beat the Celestial Tournament in required effort!
To complete it you need to earn 10 individual achievements, each asking you to defeat 12 tamers in the Broken Isles with only pets from one specific pet family.
Luckily, when one of the applicable world quests is up, you can fight the tamer repeatedly and thus finish all families in one go, if you have the pets necessary to pull that off.

Once you complete the achievement, you will get your very own tiny, corrupted, adorable Nightmare Treant :-)
Xu-Fu can scan this section for the most suitable strategies according to your preferences and show the required pets.
Pick a family below to check which pets you need.

The RNG on the Quests up to actually do any part of this is crazy.... :(

Do you have to wait for the WQ to come before you can fight them? It's been like 3 days now with no trainers from family familiar

unfortunately yes, you need the WQ to be up in order to fight them for the achievement

Some of them can be done without the WQ up.

I was able to do Durian by creating, then deleting 7 trial characters. travel was a bit tedious, but i got 140 bandages and about 100g selling all the gear from each trial before deleting. ;)

I had thought there was some sort of CD or delay making new ones but it worked fine.

You can save time by just making one level 110 class trial character and using it to battle him repeatedly!

When you log in on the trial character, just use the Hearthstone immediately to skip the tutorial scenario and go to Stormwind/Orgrimmar. Then, go to the portal room and use the Azsuna portal. From there, go over to Illidari Stand and use the flight point to fly to Lorlathil, Val'sharah (trial characters come with that flight point). Finally, just mount up and ride over to Durian.

Credit to Venara on Wowhead and GamesDean here for this great trick!

ETA: Alternatively, just skip this jerk, because you only need to defeat 12 master tamers for the individual achievements, not all 15 listed. (edited)

so far Flummox was far easier than Bredda, for me. The only Flummox first strat that didn't work was for mech. 6 down, 6 to go ;)

Something I didn't see in the notes or comments. If the world quest is up you can actually battle them as many times as you want. Meaning you could knock out all of the family's in one shot for that quest.

It seems that Durian Strongfruit is not repeatable however.

Durian is repeatable by different characters though, each time that Durian is up I ran any character that I had above 110 out there and battled him, so I could get all of the families done.

Really useful information for those of us who don't log in every day and don't have an army of alts. I may actually get this achievement finished now!

I read in another comment section that Family Familiar should have an export all option if you click the "red skull". I'm probably being ridiculously dense but for the life of me, I can't find the red skull lol

Hey! That's my bad. I upgraded the rematch strings to be better (including steps now!) and the export-all button broke due to that. So I had to remove it.... it'll come back though, eventually. No idea when though, sorry!

Not a problem, I was just being lazy! I appreciate the effort that goes into the site. The strategies are fantastic.

Having alts who also have world quests open can make these achievements go much faster. Especially if there's more than one trainer up that week. While the achievements and such are account wide, the world quests are not.

Want to add my thanks to that of others, since returning to the game a few months ago, this has been a very valuable resource. Completed the acheivement today,
