I don't want Hati itself to stick around (maybe make it a new rare to tame post Legion or something, IDK).

I am all for having the option for BM and 2 pets out, on one condition: they get it to work correctly. they would have to fix much of what Xella mentioned. I like the idea of two pets, but Hati is still borked and unless they can fix it, then nahhhh.

I only recently swapped from MM to BM but I won't miss hati too much tbh. I mean I enjoy having two cool looking spirit kitties follow me around but he isn't really a major boost to the spec and I do feel like I'm gonna agro half the dungeon/raid with pets either side of me. I think it was a fun thing for Legion but I'm happy to let it die there too.

Yeah I hear ya. I'm left feeling a little sadened about it all. I had been quietly dreaming that BM would get two pets for such a LONG time, the idea just felt so very "Master of the Beasts!"

However with the way legion has shoe horned a 2nd pet in via Hati and it's implementation, has left me rather sour about the whole thing. The fact that we don't have two pets really, we have one, and the artifact has one? It's taken something that could and should have been amazing (in my eyes) and gave us a poor man's guardian.

We can't name it, the perma electrical buzz even after hatimog, the terrible combat lag and unresponsiveness, missing large chunks of DPS because it's soooo slow.... all this things have put me off the idea of 2 pets now so much. I'm kinda annoyed by it all.

I have really struggled to commit any kind of bond or connection with Hati due to seeing him and his name... everywhere! It felt so forced that I struggled. It's also due to the fact it is not a beast, that I wanted/hunted/tamed, but just a spirit of a dead one, trapped in a gun that aids you because you wield it. You put down the gun and it's gone.

The other thing is Dire Beast. We have gone from 1 pet, to a literal Zoo of random beasts that we throw at the enemy like a crazy cat lady! To have to keep calling random beasts to get our focus back, just continually erodes my personal link to all my pets/guardians. It makes them feel disposable and again hard to create a bond with. (And yes I know I can use Dire Frenzy, but it really is just shit gameplay design. Spamming your focus builder thats ready.... however you have to wait while your pet slowly runs into range... it's just SUCH a terrible design.... NO ty.)

In its current form, I'll be very happy to see the door hit Hati's ass on the way out. Thorim can have his dang gun (and buzz wolf) back >.>. I would be interested to see them explore the possibility of having two PROPER pets for BM. I still have a little hope and that it could be glorious, but at the moment.... I kinda just want my old BM back without having to "Carry" Hati and his bad DPS.

Not to mention that it STILL doesn't work with Titan's Thunder unless you're in a melee range of your pet and opponent + the lack of any basic range on the ability (not even the jump that KC gives, but the fact that it is literally 0 yard range) can screw one up royally if target is moving. Pet just chases it while hunter sweats bullets and spams DF :\

I have to say, it's refreshing to see everyone's opinions. I was sort of bothered that I was in the minority, disliking Hati and 2 pets / zoo of Dire Beasts concept :D

I don't think I'd miss Hati. I'd be content to do without a second pet in the future if having one meant putting up with Hati's waddling slowly along like a geriatric pet with bad arthritis and the constant running back to my side while my 'real' pet stays in there working on that group of mobs.

I'm kinda glad to see that I'm not the only one who thought of that Simpsons cat lady the first time I started throwing pets at enemies with Dire Beast. Gotta admit, though, that throwing a dinosaur or unicorn is kinda funny.

At least you got that. I didn't even get slow waddling Hati today. I got epic laziness Hati who stood next to me in 95% of fights while WQ-ing and attacked from there. One occasion he seems to blink strike to the mobs. But yeah. Couldn't even be bothered to waddle to the mob today.

And you get a dino. And you get a dino. And you get a dino. Everybody gets a dino! :lol:

I like having two pets. I'm used to glitches. I do not like not being able to rename Hati and having to wait till 110 to get the swapper thingy.

Yeah, I've been noticing my Hati taking far too long to jump into the fray when I attack.
My other pet is wailing away on the enemy, and Hati is still obliviously licking his nether regions.


Hati will repsond to the comand, to send pet in. Whenever he isn't attacking, I just press B and he starts attacking.

I like and dislike Hati for all the reasons mentioned. The glitchy AI is the main complaint but otherwise I like the idea they went with. Having the ability to "face swap" him to something else is a nice plus. The next expansion it would be nice to retain at least a passive secondary pet if the AI can't be made to behave better.

One more grumble. Today I went into the order hall and there must have been fifteen Hatis lurking around the mission board. It ain't special if everyone's got one, dammit. Make the transmuter thingy available at 100, could you PLZ bliz.

Just touching on this since for a few days I've busted buns on my nelf huntress who only runs lone wolf MM to get her to 110 and then quickly jumped on another BM to start her. And holy crap Hati annoyed the living hell out of me. I didn't realize just how much he is in the way, loud, slow and practically useless he is.
At this point good riddance. Even now after all this time he doesn't work right. I really would hate for that to bleed over into a dual pet system.
Changing my vote to GTFO. Don't let the door smash your fluffy tail on the way out.

I don't play BM anymore, but this is definitely the option I'd pick.

Hati's AI is terrible, and not being able to name the second pet is just... annoying? Give BM two FUNCTIONING pets that don't act aloof.
