4. All standard pets will be merged, with a limit of three per type. Players who currently have more than three of the same pet across their characters will see a total of three after the migration. Examples of standard pets: Orange Tabby Cat, Brown Prairie Dog, Crimson Whelpling.


I am confused about this.

So if I have 4 cats, I will only have 3 after patch?


I u have say orange Tabby cat on 8 toons when this merges u will only see 3 of the 8 orange Tabby cats
Pets that can only be used by characters of the other faction will be greyed out. Such pets can only be summoned by characters of the proper faction.


During my quest for Littlest Pet Shop acheivement, I collected the Horde reward pets from Argent Tournement Grounds. Some of them were bought at onsiderable expense. Does this mean that I no longer get to bring out my Durotar Scorpion or my (favorite) Sweeping Broom?

Where do these "500 pets" come frrom?? I struggled to accumulate 150!!
I like to collect the companion pets, even horde.. as alliance so what you are saying is that as alliance I wont be able to use that pet. Why.. If I buy it or get it should be able to bring it out when I want. And please clarify the number of pets an account may have.
How does this work? What about those folks working toward a pet achievement, if the pets are merged that would change the totals.
So if you can place all my vanity pets into one super massive bank usable by any of my characters anywhere why can I not send my BoA items to a character on another sever as well?

to Chablis: right with you here. I am at 126 or so, and struggling to get to 150... now wondering how many I'll have when we get into the game!

And I likewise hope I get to keep the 2 alliance Argent Tourney pets I bought off the AH.

I guess any pets in the bank that are not "used' yet.. (say if we put a Jingling Bell in the bank) will still be in the bank?
Does anyone else dislike the idea of pets fighting? lol
Does this mean the new gryphon hatchling I just bought will not be usable? Not sure if it is faction-bound.
i think this shall be fun
Do trading card game pets go account wide? I have 2 spectral kittens I would like all my toons to have.

I really wish peeps would read the thread...

The only faction specific pets are:
Moonkin Hatchling
Guild Page
Guild Herald
Argent Squire/Argent Gruntling
Horde/Alliance Balloon

Those each have a version for their faction.

You can have up to 3x of any particular pet. This means that if you like the Bombay cat, you can go to Ellwynn forest and buy more to have 3 in your pet journal. There are also the load of new pets being added with MoP, so between those two things, you could easily reach 500 pets.

OTOH, the pet achievements are going to be for unique pets. This means your 3 Bombay cats only count as 1 in regards to your achievement totals.
In the news notes they are stating that realms will be up at 1 pm PDT.

I just hope my Ethereal Kitty makes it through the mess. lol

Yes, that was covered in a blue post in the Beta forums. I had concerns about that as well. Not only will they be account wide, the pets aren't considered unique, so you'll have 2 spectral kittens in your journal when you log in.
Apparently, the servers are still down... Blizzard lies a lot when it comes to when the servers go back up... a LOT... sometimes you can get in up to an hour or more earlier than they said, and sometimes (like today), you're SOL for freaking forever. *goes off and reads a book*
*comes back* ofc, technically, they do say things like "we expect" and "approximately", so it prolly doesn't count as lying, but after all these years you'd think they would know how to estimate how long these things would take. Ah well... *goes back to book (Friday, by Robert Heinlein, if anybody's interested)*
*comes back* On a topic-related note, I'm excited about the account-wide mounts! Can't wait for this mage to have access to all my other toons' mounts! Kodo, Chocobo-- err... Hawkstriders, skeletal horses! *squeeeeee!* Hey, I wonder if the Warlock class mounts will count? lol I'd make a paladin just for their mount too! oh, and ofc the DK's mount!

Class and faction specific mounts do not count. You won't find a gryphon nor a Dreadsteed for your Orc DK. :)
Here's a thought. I have 2 characters with an Albino Drake. They'll all have one now?
The new time is 2 pm PDT. I rather them take longer than have it buggy.
