Pet for paladin or not?

I received a Maccaw as a pet in a quest. Can a paladin use one or not? I've checked out some pet trainers and they say they only train hunters. How can I train my pet if possible? How do I get more advance pets? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

What you have is a non combat pet. Just right click on it to use it. Paladins do get combat pets, unless you count guardian of ancient kings at level 85.

I rolled a warrior first way back in vanilla, and at level 10 I was trying to prestige that warrior character as a paladin.

my best screw up was not knowing the difference between 2h and dual wield and spending nearly 3 hours traveling from city to city asking in trade how to get it and spending all the money i had on training up all the different weapon types

Yeah, think of the Maccaw as a pet pet. Like a little chihuahua or something. It follows you around and generally is just cool to have around. But it doesn't do anything. These are also called non-combat pets. They're for show, though you can also get several achievements by getting pets.


A Hunter pet (or a Lock minion) are "combat" pets. They actually have abilities and fight with you. Only Hunters and Warlocks get those. Death Knights, if they spec Unholy, can also make their little Ghoul thing into a combat pet.


So your little Maccaw is just there to give you a companion to travel around the world with. :) Kinda like how you can have lots of different mounts, but they don't fight with you.



Note: For the sake of argument, I'm assuming this was a genuine question, not a troll, and trying to be helpful in that sense. If it was a genuine question...well, hope I've been helpful. If it wasn't, I don't really care. :p

Don't listen to the jerks who like to ruin WoW for people who are (probably) fairly new to the game. As some of the more enlightened responders said basically, you have a non-combat pet, which means it won't help you fight, but they are great for looks or if you get lonely soloing. Yes, pet trainers only train hunters. Warlocks and death knights have combat pets like hunters, which help them fight (but can also be killed, whereas your Maccaw is indestructible :-) You can have many non-combat pets (they're technically called "companions") whatever class you are, but sadly they won't contribute to the fight. Anyway, hope that clarified it a little, and like I said, not all of the people who responded to you are jerks (actually i only saw one or two)

Hunter, Warlock, Unholy Death Knight, Frost Mage are the only ones considered towards having a combat pet.
