Back when I was a wee dwarf of only 10 levels or so, questing in Dun Morogh, I occasionally had to kill these snow leopards that lived in the mountains. It was important to the dwarves there to keep the population low.
Every now and then I’d kill one, and they’d drop this. A Small Leather Collar. Now being a wee dwarf only a few days into my warcraft experience, I thought that eventually I’d find mobs that would drop a version of the collar that I could put on my own pet. In fact, I tried several times to put this on my pet. I mean… it’s a collar, right?
I never really got over the idea that WoW should have pet gear of some kind, perhaps just the one slot. But something. It would be so cool! Over the years Blizz has been very kind to hunter pets. If you had a pet back before patch 2.0, you know what I mean. Pets simply did not live through boss fights in raids. Pet heal was a channeled spell. My pet used to do 72dps. Very few abilities, and fewer still that were useful.
So I’m thrilled with how totally awesome pets are now. But I still yearn to get Nibbles some kind of bauble to help him out, and show that he’s loved. So here’s some suggestions for Blizzard, who no doubt read WHU regularly:
blue gem slot
Attacks against your pet cause 25 damage to the attacker
Collar of Renewal
Collar of the Predator
Collar of Ambush
Sleek Collar of the Cheetah
Gargantuan Collar of the Beast
