So apparently When u tame Bufo he becomes extremely small and makes a great pocket sized Tank

Yeah, this is known. I do not doubt that it will be fixed at some point, but fun whilst it lasts :)

Gosh! I didn't realize *how* much the poor guy shrank. :D Definitely going to get a kick out of it while it lasts.

I should remove the second pet and make everyone think I'm Marksman. ;)

I think many of the frogs do that> I have tamed a few toad/frogs and a few shrink a lot. Atleast the ones in RFK dungeon shrink.
I tamed the from from shadowmoon valley, Draenor, though i don't remember it shrinking much at all.

Having only tamed Bufo, I can't say whether he shrinks more than other frogs/toads, but dang if he aint tiny. He's even a little smaller than the toad battlepet:

I actually hope it stays that way. The shrink glyph for hunters is a joke.

There's no way he would stay that way. His hit box is almost nonexistant, making him problematic in PVP. He's adorable, but it's way too exploitable.

Yeah. They reversed it on the beetles from Naxx ages ago. Bufo will be no different.

This has always bugged me but I have to ask, who in their right mind point and clicks targets in PvP? :| All about the tab :mrgreen:

Tab isn't always effective when there are a lot of targets near one another. Sometimes clicking is the best way to go.

Basically what Val said. Tab has gotten me into more trouble than I can count...in PvP and PvE.

I have changed my tab keybind to target nearest enemy, it has yet to be less useful than manually clicking targets in a PvP battle, also as a Hunter in PvE having it on nearest enemy keeps me from pulling. :mrgreen:

It's not just clicking, there's also mouseover macros. Especially for cc. If I'm laying into someone, I don't want to tab to snare or blind a pet and then tab through all the targets to get back to the person I'm trying to kill. And sometimes the player I'm trying to kill isn't close to me. Sometimes they're trying to keep their distance or escape and there's other players or npcs around me.

@Xota. Exactly. Maybe there is a healer that you're trying to target, but there is a group of several Horde/Alliance between you and them. Tabbing is nice, but it isn't always the best way of doing things.

Nameplates? I mean if I do have to click on something I click on the nameplate not the hit box, because they are all the same size and hit boxes aren't. :mrgreen:

Can be a hassle if there's a lot of people grouped up and moving around.

^ As above, nameplates, especially if they're in a clump, are difficult to differentiate. They're all different colours, different spells being cast sometimes show up, and constantly are moving. It's a nightmare.

In general, clicking means I know exactly which target I'm getting at and I just find that tab leaves a lot more room for error than clicking does. I still use tab, but only in situations where everyone is clumped up and it doesn't matter who I target - and even then I still check which mob I'm actually facing just in case. Poor little Bufo, even if you were clicking on nameplates, would get lost in the sea of people.
