Your Favorite Pet?
After Blizz normalized pets, I was stupid and abandoned him out of rage at Blizz lol :/
But I got Rak'shiri (Maysa) back in vanilla, still got her. That's my solo pet :) and Skoll (Nephanis) is my other fav, wanted him since I saw him. That's my party pet unless another is needed xD
Back in vanilla I tamed Sian-Rotam, when trying to do so would just get you fear spammed and maimed on the ground. I was a jerk and had an entourage of people to stunlock him, just to make my life easier and not having to deal with it (by deal with it I mean trap breaking early and ruining my life). As a result, I felt obligated to keep that pet so as to prevent myself from feeling like I wasted everyone's time.
So through vanilla, tBC and WotLK I primarily used Sian-Rotam, who I named SianRotam. Any time I caught another pet or had to use a different type, they were also named SianRotam. My devilsaur named SianRotam was the most confusing.
At the end of WotLK/Cataclysm I released my original Sian - and I can't entirely remember why. I had another cat, I think, and I had to get rid of one of them. I started using a wolf I'd just tamed instead, still named wolf. I never gave it a new name, so throughout Cataclysm I used an unnamed wolf still labelled wolf.
Eventually, people started hagging on me to name my pet. So I did - I changed his name to Wolf and told them he was already named. Now is now, and every once in a while someone asks me why my pet raptor mount is a wolf.
now my favorite is loque. i use him for leveling as often as possible and switch to arcturis (now named ursa) for a tank pet. under heavy duress i will switch to dragon, the new dragon turtle rare spawn in MoP.
sadly i have very few old pets that i kept around as this toon was created during the expansion for the new hunter pets. always been a cat person though. my old hunters ran with echayakee and humar quite often. had a polar bear tank for a while. bjarn i think was his name.
im an old school player though, and though i realize the practicality of pets has improved...i do miss the days of having to feed the pet to keep it around, to keep it happy. they were my loved ones back then. now theyre just utility...very pretty tools.
While dicking about with friends in Scarlet Cathedral while leveling, I thought it would be funny to have my pet pull the boss before we got to kill any of the adds. Not only did Weiss pull the entire room upon himself, he managed to take out Mograine without help before forcing the pissed off Crusaders to turn to us.
I do wish they would make a new MOP original spirit beast. Like loque but mabye a wolf or raptor or something. Something new, something super rare.
