My hunter is 3rd in my alt chain but the one thing I do enjoy is pet collecting. I hope with the increase of 'rare' pets available, they also perhaps add some more capacity to the stable.
He loses health when someone dies and can instantly kill people... So people HAVE to die just so a hunter can get their pet. What a friggin waste, the hunters can have fun doing this themselves Im not dying so they can have a certain color spider pet.
I want a giant monkey that flings poo as a rare pet.

While I'm excited for these pets as far as challenge is concerned, I'll admit that I think they could have added a little more variety; 5 of the same species is a /little/ overkill. I mean, a fire scorpid, at least. Of course, 4.2 is still going to be an amazing patch, so this is really just icing on the cake, which makes me wonder if the 5 reskinned models is because this really was sort of a "You know what we should do this for hunters oh crap we have a deadline to make" situation. Either way, should be fun.
I do appreciate that Blizzard trying to spice up the life of hunters that want to collect pets, but I would like to see more than just the same skin with lowered opacity and fancy particle effects. Maybe try making a new pet but in the end, I would like to see more dev time going into adding more stuff game that makes the game more enjoyable for everyone.
When I heard they were adding tamable rares I was really hoping there would be some hydras since they recently made the old glitch tame hydra its own creature type. But this is kinda meh, my sable is already filled with all but 2 of the tameable spirit beasts and I had em all but had to drop some to make room. When it comes down to it all the spirit beasts are identical, just different skins Now the spiders look cool and I don't have a spider currently so Ill probably grab Skitterflame but all in all not what I hoped it would be.
Deth'tilac is actually easier to tame then you would thinl, at least from my understanding of it. As long as you can kite it, have a friend or two continually go in melee range, die, rez, and die again until it's at low enough health.
Well, pvp's covered. =P I havent played a hunter in forever so idk what an owl can do, cat was just a reskin. =S
I see this as a sign that they haven't forgotten about the hunters pets, and it's a start on the road to making BM hunters even more fun to play.That aside, I think it's fail to make that many different spiders... instead of having one from each tree of types of pets, and then maybe 2 different races in each... that would have been more appealing. Or even make the different rares have special powers, that makes up for having to do tactics to tame them... something... different..To me as a BM, it would be the cats or the owl that would be interesting, but not the spiders as they are not exotic, I miss out on the 4 skill points... Yes I know people swear to the spider in pvp, but I find the spirit beast equally nice to have.Good job Blizzard for trying, and give us more BM love ;)
