Gorilla or crab for tank, gorillas had the thunderstomp thing. Broken Tooth for dps/pvp. That is if I make a hunter on a classic server. If I even play it. My nostalgia tinted glasses may be lost.

I would keep my King Krush, and maybe a spirit beast, but I don't feel particularly attached to an individual spirit beast. I do have a giant larva I'd want to keep. And a crab I like. So cancel the spirit beast, and keep the crab.

I will be running with only two pets.

I will have to keep the third slot open to be able to tame pets in order to learn techniques to teach my pets. :)

As for which pets, I'll probably take Panzer and.... something else. I don't yet know what I'll do for DPS. Probably a wind serpent (EDITED: for some reason I called them 'dragon hawks'; I knew what I meant: the wingy snakes with lightning breath).

As for whether I'll be playing it or not, I *might* be. It depends very much on whether they will be allowing transmog items gotten on Vanilla Servers to transfer over to the rest of your characters. If they do, then I definitely will be as there are tons of things I missed out on that I badly want to get.

As for the Grimtotem Spirit Guide, I'm almost positive it was in the game before BC. The thing is, it didn't live fast enough for you to tame it; you couldn't get the haste. Or at least, no one had discovered how.

It should still be there. Whether you can get enough haste to tame it in time, though, will be the question.

Dustwallow Marsh's revamp was in patch 2.3, which was during TBC—I don't think the GSW existed in the pre-2.3 version (because the Grimtotem camp that it spawns in didn't exist then). If it did, Horde could possibly get it (with bloodlust help) but alliance would be out of luck.

Well, if the ghost cat in Darkshore is available, I might tame that as my go-to pet...but for nostalgic play, I would have to go with a red hyena from Scarlet Monastery!

Wasn't Alterac Valley wolves some of the fastest pets back then? In case speed? I remember my Snow leopard was one of the slowest in case speed back then. Boars was THE Pet to have i think. .Gorillaes first came later as tank pets i believe? And there was a rare Wolf in darkshire which bite had Shadow dmg which ignored armor class i think. ..

If that's the case, I apologize and stand corrected. :) I didn't think it had gotten any changes done; I could have sworn the only reason people were unable to tame them was that no one had Beast Lored and/or gotten enough haste!

I tamed the wolf from Darkshire (Lupus?), knowing that eventually they'd fix his shadow damage. He was great while it lasted though. I think Broken Fang had the fastest attack speed of any pet. I know casters hated him in PvP due to the pushback. The fastest moving pet was Takk, wasn't it? I know he could run down mounted folks.

As far as I remember Bite Rank 8 was only learned from Wolves in LBRS/UBRS which at that time I think had an unique appearance... there were two versions.. black and brown? BrokenTooth I remember I loved due to attack speed :D
The pink tallstridre Mazz(soomething) had the slowest chase speed and right after was the snowleopard I think.. The named tiger in STV had some good attack speed too?

Was mend pet channeled back then? I remember it having a cast line..

Oh yeah. Broken Tooth. I can't believe I got his name wrong. I was lucky in taming him. I went out to one of his spawn points and was making sure I could Eagle Eye his other spawns from where I was standing when he spawned right next to me.

Mazzranache is/was the pink tallstrider. He was the third pet I ever tamed on my hunter and was my 'main pet' for years and years. I still have him and run around with him now and then. I remember riding between Thunder Bluff and Bloodhoof Village and seeing him walking toward the road. I went back to TB, logged over to my warrior main to send some gold over so that my hunter could get his 3rd pet slot, logging back onto the hunter and waiting for the mail to arrive, buying that slot and tracking Mazz down again for a tame. I named him Peck.

I believe it was, although I am not be able to recall how long the cast took at this time.

Heh me neither. Ohh and pets had to be leveled and fed. You bonded more with your Pet back imo :) Pet leveling was a bit of a hazzle. And it could be challinging to solo if you had a low lvl Pet.
