I think I might have figured out why pet attack speeds inexplicably came back: WoW Classic.

Think about it. Blizzard has stated that WoW Classic is going to be running off the same software as current WoW, so I think it would stand to reason that pet speeds were reintegrated into the game to make coding pets a bit easier. Additionally, Classic will be starting with Patch 1.12, which is why other pet-related quirks, such as differing pursuit speeds and Lupos' shadow damage were not reinstated alongside attack speeds in 8.0, as they were baselined in Patch 1.9.

Yellow Spider 1.0 w/ haste .777 auto attacking for 2.15m dmg. I have .777 @ 2.15m = 17.2k DPS

Spirit Beast Raptor 2.0 w/ haste 1.554 auto attacking for 2.15m dmg. I have 1.554 @ 2.15m = 20.2k DPS

This was testing with only the pet attacking for a set amount of damage. Same gear for both test.



Using 2.15m damage as a total value, if I'm interpreting this correct, the faster pet with 17.2k dps needed 125 seconds to reach that target, while the slower pet with 20.2k dps only needed 106.4 seconds to reach that target. I consider it to be all relative with haste vs no haste; with that being said, this is suggesting that slower pets are the way to go?

If this is not so, can someone line me out. thanks

During the first island expedition you can do, the one where you have to kill the crab Encrusted Kingsclutter, he has a 3.o attack speed. However once you tame the crab, it doesn't seem to spawn back. I tried to log out and log back in, he didn't re-spawn. I had to drop the quest and pick it back up.

Shameless plug, I posted an addon that includes attack speed in the tooltip for wild (and pet) beasts. Now you don't need a macro, you just enable and mouseover.

How do I get the add on to show the attack speed? I downloaded it yesterday forgot to check it out logged in today on my hunter and it’s showing the main ability and other usefulness but no attack speed.

A new notable attack speed tame: N'chala the Egg Thief, the rare raptor in Zuldazar has a speedy 1.0 attack speed.
