Are "Caster pets" still a thing?

#1 Unread post by Wain » Thu May 23, 2019 8:30 am

Does anyone already have a high-enough hunter in Classic who could please check if there are pets that have "caster stats", like they did back in Vanilla?

To see what I'm talking about, and for a list of relevant pets, please see:
https://www.wow-petopia.com/classic/casterpets.php

The lowest level are Lady Sathrah (Spider, 12, Teldrassil) and Krethis Shadowspinner (Spider, 15, Silverpine Forest). The full list:

-Azzere the Skyblade (Wind Serpent, 25, The Barrens)
-Cloud Serpent (Wind Serpent, 25-26, Thousand Needles)
-Elder Cloud Serpent (Wind Serpent, 27-29, Thousand Needles)
-Fire Roc (Carrion Bird, 43-45, Tanaris)
-Greater Thunderhawk (Wind Serpent, 23-24, The Barrens)
-Hakkari Frostwing (Wind Serpent, 49-50, The Temple of Atal'Hakkar)
-Hakkari Sapper (Wind Serpent, 49-50, The Temple of Atal'Hakkar)
-Krethis Shadowspinner (Spider, 15, Silverpine Forest)
-Lady Sathrah (Spider, 12, Teldrassil)
-Thunderhawk Cloudscraper (Wind Serpent, 20-22, The Barrens)
-Thunderhawk Hatchling (Wind Serpent, 18-20, The Barrens)

I'm not asking for all of them to be checked, just one or two that you can access. Thanks :)

This is really important to know, because this bug rendered almost all Wind Serpents useless during Vanilla. It's quite possible the same will be the case in Classic. If they decide to keep this bug then I'll ask them to at least list it in their "not a bug" list of intended quirks and bugs.

Well if the old way of telling was a mana bar, most Beast NPCs even if they did cast spells, didn't have one, caster stat pets did.

Are these from the latest Classic build, so it confirms their caster status? :)

Yes these are from the latest build, as far as I know, when I get back in I'll let you know. The best test I could come up with is taming both Azzere the Skyblade lvl 25 (caster stats) and Washte Pawne lvl 25 (not caster stats) and compare the stats. :D :mrgreen:

ah yes, the bad old "don't tame anything with a mana bar!"

A shame if this will render Azzere and many other windserpents useless.
But at least we will get them back. Current game deleted classic wserpents :/
