I posted this on the official forums https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20754715295#1 I'm hoping for some feed back or suggestions.


This is a list of suggestions for Pets missing their Special Abilities (or ones who never had any):

Bats: Sonic Blast, same as Mortal Wounds effect, if Carrion Birds can do it so can Bats.

Bears: Thick Fur, same as Shell Shield, hoping for a more Druid Bear like spell effect though.

Birds of Prey: Swoop, same as Mortal Wounds effect, it's a hunting bird.

Boars: Gore, same as Mortal Wounds effect, I shouldn't have to explain this one.

Cats: Rake, same as Mortal Wounds effect, same as above.

Dogs: Baying Howl, same as Dust of Life, the Dog is sad your party member died (standing in fire) and their sad howling will bring them back to life.

Dragonhawks: Updraft, they never touch the ground, it just seems right.

Goats: Hard Headed, same as Shell Shield, it's a Goat they are known for this.

Gorillas: Primal Chest-Pound, same as Shell Shield, the Gorilla psyches themselves up for a battle.

Hydras: Too Many Heads, same as Primal Agility, with that many heads moving around it will be hard to even one.

Hyenas: Tendon Rip, same as it does now.

Mechanicals: Jumper Cables, same as Dust of Life, with a zappy animation.

Oxen: Ramming Speed, same as Nether Winds, it's just funny.

Porcupines: Quills, same as Mortal Wounds effect, I shouldn't have to explain this one.

Raptors: Savage Rend, same as Mortal Wounds effect, same as above.

Ravagers: Ravage, same as Mortal Wounds effect, same as above.

Scalehides: Scale Plates, same as Shell Shield, same as above.

Serpents: Be A Sneaky Snake, same as Primal Agility, I also thought this was funny.

Silithids: Venom Web Spray, same as Web Spray, why was this even changed?

Spiders: Web, same as Web Spray, again why was this even changed?

Spirit Beasts: Spirit Strike, same as Mortal Wounds effect, old animation please.

Sporebats: Best Pet!, everything, jk I'm not sure on this one I guess Spore Cloud as a slow maybe.

Stags: Either the same as Goats or the same as Oxen.

Tallstriders: Peck, same as Mortal Wounds effect, OR Dust Cloud with a slow effect.

Warp Stalkers: Warp Time, same as Time Warp...........

Wasps: Sting, same as Mortal Wounds effect, I shouldn't have to explain this one.

Waterstriders: Lithe Legs, same as Primal Agility.

Wind Serpents: Updraft, they also never touch the ground.

Wolves: Furious Howl, same as Nether Winds.

Worms: Acid Spit, same as Mortal Wounds effect.


Quite a few of these have names from abilities they used to have, as an old Hunter I would like to see them returned is one form or another. Others were rearranged because they made no sense.

I tried to make the abilities fit their old ones as best I could but with the limited amount of Pet Abilities we have now that wasn't too easy. I hope more people will add their suggestions and that one day soon all Pets will have abilities. :mrgreen:

This is a nice list- I really think they need to expand the currently available pet abilities to more families. I'd even be content to see them give the Spirit Mend-like heal to other Exotic families as appropriate.

With so many families having nothing now, it really limits our choices. Hopefully they work on this for a patch soon, or at least in time for next expansion.

Love this list and agree with it. Especially Spirit Strike. I was so gutted when they removed that ability and animation; it really was just pure fun to see. I'd love to see it again!

Thanks guys, if you could also post on the official forums that'd be great, doesn't seem to be getting much traffic. :| :mrgreen:

I would, but my posting ability is disabled there. Been trying to get it enabled, never get a email about it though.
