Blue post recently asked us what new pets we’d like to see tamable in Cataclysm:
We’re looking to get some feedback on the types of pets that hunters would like to be able to tame and the types of abilities that might be interesting for those pets to have. Is there a type of creature in the game now that you would like to be able to tame or an ability that you’ve always thought should be added? Here’s your chance to share a bit more about what you think could be great additions for the hunter class.
Regarding what new kinds of pets to tame, I have to say I’ve always wished we could tame critters in general. Who doesn’t want a war bunny, or squirrel, charging into battle. Or even better, let me tame one of the new snail models we saw! Give it a reduced movement speed and let it apply a slowing slime trail wherever it goes.
As far as existing things, let us tame murlocs, ’cause they need a good home. I’d also love to have an engineer craftable hunter pet – the Portable War Machine. Make 3 versions, or make customization kits for it, so you have a tenacity, cunning, and ferocity version. That would rock.
While we’re on the topic of pets, I still want to see pet collars! Also, how about some fun pet idle animations like all the vanity pets have?
As for new pet abilities, I mostly just want tenacity pets to have a way to become crit immune now that resilience won’t be helping our pets with that anymore.
What do you guys want to see?
