Who are you arguing with here? Is someone pushing to give a pet to every class / spec?
Well, I can name a number of people, such as the ones asking for a permanent SPRiest pet, the druid dryad pet people, and those. It's also a general statement of my opinion on the matters of "This class should totally get this as a pet!".
Well reading over this thread [and no I'm not for taming a creature based off the movie Thing
] has got me thinking, mostly about Warriors as I will admit when I was a noob I thought all classes could eventually get a form of a pet, I didn't realize only Hunters could tame beasts and that only Warlocks could get minions. So my first toon was a warrior [who was quickly rerolled for a hunter when I realized my mistake].
But, again I'm not for all classes to get pets, or all speccs, but, how cool would it be for a Warrior to summon a fighting companion, much like a Ench shammy summons wolves? I'm thinking it'd be along the lines of a [Battle/War [Race specific mount]]
, was thinking perhaps only for Prot warriors, or perhaps Fury Warriors, not for just warriors in general. My thinking has mostly been sparked by the fact that there are war horses who are trained in the art of battle basically. Ah here it is; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lipizzan
Note what I was thinking of wasn't a perma pet.
Like pallies. They get... Summon Angel? Okay... That's...
It's no different than Warlocks summoning demons tbh- Paladins are the 'Anti Warlock' and most people jump from 'Demon' to 'Angel' for the counterpart of one or the other. And if I remember right it was supposedly a rehash of a WC spell anyways.
This is a hunterpet forum, so I realize we're not overrepresented, but among the overall MM and SV community, and the other classes as well, a lot of people don't like pets. It's a clunky mechanic, and some people have serious trouble concentrating on more than their own character. Imagine something that takes VERY quick reactions, timing on spells, various procs, whatever. And then imagine managing a pet added to that. It would be overwhelming.
And Saturo, you forget but MM and SV can function quite well still, without a pet. A DK can function just as well, without a pet. A warlock can function just as well without a pet, and their pets are easily replaced- a quick soulburn and a rez or if Demo the talent proccing and a rez. The rez also doesn't take 10 seconds to cast; Deathknights also can instantly rez their ghoul- and even with a few minute CD and all, I've seen most unholy DK's do it after a pet died Just to sacrifice it for a heal
. While your argument has some valid points to the case, the only class+specc combo it fits to, is Beast Mastery, because you have to keep an eye on your pet, because if not you lose the ability to make use of Three Spells
, a speed boost, our 'main shot; Kill Command' and The Beast Within/Beastial Wrath.
Whenever I'm playing on a toon with SV or MM as the specc, I find myself forgetting about the pet entirely or just letting people stupidly attack my pet in PVP as I run away or kill them out of spite.
And I also doubt it would be overwhelming to that extent, alot of macros exist where one press and pet is either passive/at your side or on the attack at your specific target, yada yada. I mean the only thing that gets distracting is when your pet glitches and disappears, runs off to attack a critter, refuses to attack a mob that is unknowingly glitched etc.
Also, ontopic, no. No hunters don't need Flesh Beasts. I had seen Shadow Fiends for priests before but never thought anything of them as well they were all shadowy. But when I saw the Flesh Beasts in Netherstorm. When I did the quest. When they ERUPTED FROM CORPSES TO TRY AND FEED ON MY SOUL I almost screamed like a little girl and fled from the sight. I hate them, they are NOT hunter pets, just because they have beast in their name, doesn't mean they are a beast. A Flesh Beast is based upon an alien in a remake of a movie that Ate creatures
like the Blob, but worse, it ate them and transformed into them and it was NOT a quick process. Ontop of it the creature could INFECT people, slowly turning them into itself and evidently it would advance quicker with paranoia running through your mind.
They're horrible little things I never want to see again.
Shadow Fiends= ok for SPriests
Flesh Beasts= ALL SHOULD BURN IN ETERNAL BERNING.
