Re: Return of the Scorpid

This is just my speculation but I think this has something to do with pets' model integrity when set on lower graphic setting. While the baby direhorn, albeit looking a bit pixelated when its size is scaled up after taming, the wolf cub model is severely ruined when the graphic is set low, especial...

Re: Return of the Scorpid

Honestly they look out for us so much, I hope people can see that and not feel bitter toward them for pet decisions. They give us a lot, and I'm just really grateful someone went through the trouble of doing this at all. :) They took my puppy. Going to be real hard short of giving it back to make t...

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorp - UPDATE: HOTFI

This whole puppy thing is getting out of hand which we wanted to avoid at the start do we miss puppy yes we all do and what happened is unfair but pestering Blizzard for an answer isn't the way to go they are only human and make mistakes. I don't think you fully appreciate how much I miss him. I've...

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorp - UPDATE: HOTFI

You're making it into a much bigger deal than it really is. At the risk of repeating myself. This is a subjective determination. What is not a big deal to you can be completely show stopping for someone else. You're making a factual statement out of an opinion. I will totally spend the next 6 month...

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorp - UPDATE: HOTFI

this isn't a big deal. It's a big deal to me. You're entitled to your opinion that it's a minor issue, but understand it IS an opinion. it wasn't all Blizzard's fault for removing them It really was. This was an action taken purely under their own agency. As we are so often reminded, they are under...

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorp - UPDATE: HOTFI

The thing is, the Hunter community isn't united on the issue. Some wish it was back, some are glad it is gone. Some are happy for those who got it, whilst others are spiteful. In the end, there is a fair chance Blizz won't address this, nor do they have to. They have bigger things on their plate ri...

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorp - UPDATE: HOTFI

Of course, I do understand that. Trust me I would do anything for the baby wolf to come back. But if blizz truly hates it I would rather something like that rather than a low rez vanilla worg model lol. If the entire hunter community stood united instead of accepting a raw deal, it's very likely th...

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorp - UPDATE: HOTFI

Except Blizz has shown countless times that they do care. Look at my post on the last page concerning all that Blizz has given us. Each and every one of those were requests at one point. Requests heard and fulfilled. Just because Blizz chose to remove one pet that was never intended to be tamable d...

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorp - UPDATE: HOTFI

The thing is, Blizzard probably was thinking of the people who were already upset - the ones who may have wanted these guys, but were justifiably concerned that their accounts would be jeopardized, because the method of getting these guys was an exploit. I've been on the other side of the unintende...

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorp - UPDATE: HOTFI

You act as though Blizz did this with the sole purpose of upsetting people. That wasn't their intention. Are you sure? From where I'm sitting the list of valid developmental reasons for doing this is perilously short. the fact is was purely cosmetic eliminates all balance concerns from the equation...

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorp - UPDATE: HOTFI

I find the oversized nature of the pup was easily it's most endearing quality. In fact it was my intention to make him way bigger, though I didn't know about the texture settings so I never got around to it before they took them. Could have easily gotten it to the size of the lion's pride for sure.

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorp - UPDATE: HOTFI

I've zero proof of this but my thoughts & feelings are not the appearance of it being a wolf pup as to why it was removed but the method getting to it. Which seems that's forgotten in my opinion. Being summoned to another class hall. I do think it being a mini pet is a factor but not the primary. A...

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorp - UPDATE: HOTFI

I really wish they'd have more cute tames or you know as long as it's not breaking the game or causing any unfair advantage to just keep it in game. Things like the oil wolf and flaming pigs really didn't do any harm besides be a pain in the butt to nail lol. I mean if a hunter wants to spend 2-5 h...

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorp - UPDATE: HOTFI

I think people are mostly mad at the inconsistency here, I mean if all glitch pets were taken away after sometime I would still get one but just for the pics, lols, and it's something to do. The fact that it wasn't hurting anything, no one got an advantage from it, Blizzard even promptly made it so...

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorp - UPDATE: HOTFI

Doesn't change the fact that it was an unfair advantage and that, possibly, that was part of Blizz's decision. Nope. If it were, there are about 30 or so other pets which they'd have deleted quite some time ago with the same behavior. Any pet naturally small in the wild has this behavior when the p...

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorp - UPDATE: HOTFI

It isn't. This, as Wain even said, was an exploit for all practical purposes. From day one, we knew there was a chance that they could be removed. They did actually give a combat advantage. Though it didn't always happen, there were times (happened to myself once or twice), where the pup would shri...

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorp - UPDATE: HOTFI

It isn't being kill joys. Yeah, it totally is. There was no legitimate developmental reason to remove these. The pets were purely cosmetic, conferring no combat advantage of any kind. IMO this change smacks of outright maliciousness. There is simply no other basis for it. This will be forever known...

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorpion - tamed!

You know what would be awesome? If they could fix the bugs with apex predator's claw and pet pathing as quickly as they pounced on this harmless fun.

Re: Dreamway Prowler Pup and Emberspit Scorpion - tamed!

Pets sometimes descale themselves back to pre-tamed size. It's a known issue, and is especially noticeable when it happens to Thok.
