is it possible to get a pet like ghost hydra restored after a long time or is there a limit on how long ago it has to be? also do i need to remember its name or just say it was the ghost hydra?

The only way to find out is to ask. I'm not sure what the exact time durations are on restorations. I know some people have successfully had old pets restored after quite a long while, but others have been turned down due to the information not being available anymore.

If you're planning on opening a ticket, just be polite and try to give as much information as you can. If you can remember roughly when it was abandoned, what it's name was, etc.

I'm thinking if Hydras are indeed a planned addition to the Hunter pet families, they're not quite ready yet and will be saved for a later content patch, perhaps with the Firelands raid and such.

I do still have high hopes that Blizzard wants to make them tameable, there have been enough hints dropped that they're fiddling with them. *crosses fingers*

I definitely agree that I think hydras will come, I just don't think it'll be with 4.1. I think it'll be with 4.2 or even beyond. Most importantly, it'll be when and if Blizzard's ready. :)

Blizzard has been fiddling with this for almost three months that we know of so, maybe I'm just being overly optimistic but that, to me, if more then enough time to make something tamable.
They have their own family and can be controlled by a hunter so beyond "flipping the switch" I don't think there is anymore that they would really have to do. Honestly, again I could be way off base, but it seems that waiting till 4.2 or later is purely to screw with us. Tough way of putting it but it's how I feel.

Personally, I think they're far more concerned with the content and bug fixes they're putting out over making hydras tamable. Not to mention, I seriously think it's more than just "flipping a switch" to make an entire new family tamable. We aren't developers, we don't know exactly what they have to do to make a certain pet tamable, but I'm pretty sure it's more than just flipping a switch.

They have to determine how the pet will scale in terms of size, enable coding for it to be tamable, initiate attacks and abilities, make sure their animations function decently, determine what family they belong to, etc etc.

Not saying I don't understand what you're saying Tyger or that it's "easy" or a piece of cake but even by other hunters ghost hydras are scaled, talents etc. Yes I know there are several different hydra models but the overall mechanics are the same.

True that I am basing this on a completely uneducated opinion of how it functions as far as development is but what is capable in the family is represented in the current tamed hydras and in my mind I can't see Blizz only fixing the tamed animals. I hope that makes sense. I'm on my phone so typing isn't the easiest neither is fully proof reading and relaying in the hopes I'm understood. :D

It's by what is reported by hunters with hydras currently of why it's appears to be a simple thing of just change them from Cannot Be Tamed to Tamable.

Blizz should take as long as they want in doing this they have more important things to worry about atm than giveing us a extra pet type.

Thing is though, ghost hydras were never intended to be tamed, and as far as I know, because they were, already had the full set of animations and everything--at least for that point in time. We don't know what Blizzard intends to do with hydras other than they appear to be wanting to make them tamable. We don't know anything beyond that.

Not to mention, the more important, underlying point of their patches is the upcoming content. I imagine they're pretty bogged down tuning ZA/ZG (not to mention Firelands) as well as continually fine-tuning the classes (a project they've been doing since release). I'd rather them get all that stuff working than them throw in some pretty shiny to make hunters happy and make all the other classes whine because we get something new and their class is still "broken."

I'm disappointed that tameable hydras won't be in for 4.1, but hopefully it was just a little side project that the developers/programmers didn't have time for this go around. Maybe a 4.1.x will have the tameable hydras once all the new dungeon nuttery is sorted out.

I guess I'll try and put it another way.

Blizzard is giving us in 4.1 eight unused skins. What makes that any different then making hydras a now tamable mob???
What makes /made those eight unused skins anymore important or easier????

I fail to understand why eight unused skins are being added in 4.1 as tamable mobs but a skin that's been in the game for how many years now, would take that long to be made tamable. Even if the family stayed under crocolisks. :D

Becouse they have more important things to do they can't keep adding new things JUST FOR HUNTERS. We are lucky that they add anything new for us.

Uh, how about pets automatically leveling with us?

Or pets doing max damage without having to worry about happiness?

Yha because carrion feeder, Guard dog, bloodthirsty and the rune made keeping our pet happy so hard.
I feel like they went into a kids room stole a toy, put new batteries in it, then wrapped it up and gave it to him on christmas
