I think I might have figured out why pet attack speeds inexplicably came back: WoW Classic.

Think about it. Blizzard has stated that WoW Classic is going to be running off the same software as current WoW, so I think it would stand to reason that pet speeds were reintegrated into the game to make coding pets a bit easier. Additionally, Classic will be starting with Patch 1.12, which is why other pet-related quirks, such as differing pursuit speeds and Lupos' shadow damage were not reinstated alongside attack speeds in 8.0, as they were baselined in Patch 1.9.

Spirit Beast Raptor 2.0 w/ haste 1.554 auto attacking for 2.15m dmg. I have 1.554 @ 2.15m = 20.2k DPS

This was testing with only the pet attacking for a set amount of damage. Same gear for both test.

Using 2.15m damage as a total value, if I'm interpreting this correct, the faster pet with 17.2k dps needed 125 seconds to reach that target, while the slower pet with 20.2k dps only needed 106.4 seconds to reach that target. I consider it to be all relative with haste vs no haste; with that being said, this is suggesting that slower pets are the way to go?

If this is not so, can someone line me out. thanks

During the first island expedition you can do, the one where you have to kill the crab Encrusted Kingsclutter, he has a 3.o attack speed. However once you tame the crab, it doesn't seem to spawn back. I tried to log out and log back in, he didn't re-spawn. I had to drop the quest and pick it back up.

How do I get the add on to show the attack speed? I downloaded it yesterday forgot to check it out logged in today on my hunter and it’s showing the main ability and other usefulness but no attack speed.

A new notable attack speed tame: N'chala the Egg Thief, the rare raptor in Zuldazar has a speedy 1.0 attack speed.

The clefthoove wooly rhino bull in borean tundra has a 3.0 attack speed. Was looking for a dark colored tank for my shadow hunter mog and was surprised to find this 3 speed clefthoove. Being arguably the best overall per family in BFA, the 3 attack speed and harder attacks are fitting for a rhino.

IIRC just type /stablehand and it turns on the Atkspeed.

Just went through my stables on Jez, and found a couple more pets with unique attack speeds.

Rokad the Ravager from Karazhan has a blistering 0.75 attack speed, much like Deth'tilac, while the Stonelash Pincers of "tiny spiderscorp" fame have a 1.5 attack speed. I think there were a couple more unique ones I had on me or had seen elsewhere, but they've either been previously catalogued, or I simply don't remember.

Also, there are a ton of 1.5 attack speed tameables in BfA. Like, way too many to list.

At this point, I really think we should start listing the individual attack speeds of pets on the main site. I remember the site listing the attack speeds of every pet back in Vanilla (or at least, the notable ones) before TBC hit. I'd also love to have us start making a more concerted effort to catalogue the attack speeds of every tameable beast in-game. Maybe make a Google document or something in the meantime?

The Classic site already has a good number of extant and extinct pets (due to Cataclysm). I'd hope the mods would suggest a similar listing for pets that exist during BfA.
