Special Pets (functional)

#1 Unread post by skribs » Mon Nov 12, 2018 5:24 pm

There exists a database of pets with special looks, or pets that are more difficult to tame.

Are there plans to put in an option to search by attack speed or some other bonus (i.e. Lupos)?

There was a very special pet on vanilla: Lupus, a rare worg in Duskwood.

What made him special was that his attacks were SHADOW DAMAGE instead of physical.

Of those pets you don't have attack speeds, I believe Araga and the Frostwolf were 1.5 attack speed. The Frostwolf was also notable because it's 240% chase speed.

Elite pets had more hp and armor when tamed too if I rember correctly. Only golden elites i think. . Not silver rares .. which I don't remember if it was even a thing?

Silver elite rares did indeed exist back then. They were just, well, rare.

As for the increased hp and armor I don't remember they having more compared to ''normal'' pets.

I tracked down records of the attack speeds of another 16 Classic pets. That just leaves 23 for which I have no reliable record. See:
http://www.wow-petopia.com/classic/atta ... ed_Unknown

There are some obscure pages that do mention attack speeds for these pets, but I've found them to be unreliable - some just filled in a default '2.0' for anything they didn't have specific data on.

Regarding Lupos - he did indeed do shadow damage in Vanilla, but that was fixed in 1.9 so he shouldn't be doing that in Classic.
