Ok so I went on to my hunter on the PTR. This is what I still see so far. It would seem the glyphs and pet talents have yet to be changed despite the patch notes saying they have. There is not even the smallest of change in the pets size when I used mend. However I did forget to mention

Edit: This doesn't even work either...
The Feed Pet ability now instantly heals 50% of the pet's health.

I know the PTR patch notes hit today, but when exactly was the last patch for the PTR? Wasn't it several days ago? I would be willing to bet that today's patch notes haven't been implemented yet.

Can anyone confirm that ANY (for any class) of the notes have been implemented?

I need more hunters, IMO.

Pets don't have happiness icons anymore, so that part was already put in.

Well, I was on the PTR yesterday, and I can say that atleast the tooltips for the glyph and Feed pet has NOT changed yet. Did not try to remove the glyph and put it back because of this though.

I did however notice that when you look at the M map and remove it, you have a map in your hands! (yes, totally off topic)

For whatever reason, they've now change that glyph to "Glyph of Lesser Propotion" - Slightly Reduces the size of your pet.
So in other words - pointless? :P

Oh well... will have to find something else to fill the 3rd minor glyph slot now then...

Just a quick comparison - I could see a slight difference and occaisionally you could notice the "extra-growth" happen when the lesser glyph is not applied.

Hard to do as the pets typically stand in a slightly different position :P You'll have to try it out for yourself however.

I'm hoping that Blizzard gave everyone the "increased" proportion pets as standard, and you have the option to shrink them to how they are now (on live) if you prefer.

:( Ok that's a bit.. shame to say the least. I was really looking forward to the original version of the glyph :<

I'm happy for it, in some cases. I feel devilsaurs and most flying pets are too big and get in the way of my -own- targeting nevermind the poor warrior stuck looking at wall-o-dino constantly(I dislike tab-targeting since that causes trouble especially when CC is in use) soooo... smaller is better. Except for devildogs, I still feel they're too small compared to everything else.

someday I'll find someplace to host a sig that isn't stupid money-grubbing photobucket

Why can't they just put in one of each glyph? Some people want bigger pets, some people want smaller pets.....yeah, that'd be an extra glyph that we don't have now, but at least we'd have both options.

Edit: And what's this I hear about pets being tamed to your same level instead of three below?

Oh no =( I loved the feeding animation, especially with my cats and my Devilsaur...chomp chomp chomp!!! Still, will make DPSing easier I guess without having to check if your pet's happy or not xD So pretty on the fence with this change.

Hating the Glyph change too. =(

I don't care for my pet to get smaller so I'm going to be removing that glyph when the patch goes live.
I believe if you can believe out of nothing an explosion (big bang) happened then how far fetched can god be?

I thought you'll still be able to feed your pet to heal it up?
