It'll be interesting to see. I kinda agree regarding pet specs - on paper it seems interesting to differentiate families by giving them different specs, but in practice it spoils a lot of them. There was a reason the class designers moved away from that some years ago and it seems weird they just went back to it, especially when it was the kind of regression that nobody was asking for.MaximumOverdrive wrote: ↑Sat Nov 30, 2019 5:20 pmI'm super curious as to how they'll handle certain class abilities...will BM hunters need to be max level to tame exotic beasts? I'd like to them to at least bring back picking specs pet families. I find myself not using certain pets anymore cause of the locked spec thing right now.
As far as exotics goes, hopefully they’re tameable at lower level. But as I’ve said in the past I would prefer to see that category removed entirely as it’s a little redundant when hunters can tame all kinds of weird and crazy things that *aren’t* exotic, yet only some hunters can tame things that are classified as exotic but are actually pretty mundane.
If we want to keep some pets only for Beast Masters then one option would be to make all families open to all hunters, but classify a subgroup of each as special or exotic or whatever. Take turtles, for example: the majority could be tameable by anyone, but maybe only BM could control a fancy fire turtle or the glowing stone one.
Spirit Beasts could remain a family composed of only exotic pets, or they could be split up and each merged into the family it’s associated with. So, a number of families could end up with “spirit” members which get extra powers and are BM only, but which still take their core abilities from that associated family. That would also mean that creatures like spirit moose no longer end up with nonsensical abilities like Claw and Growl, which were created with the assumption that spirit beasts were cats.

Crawgs are the best hunter pet. Prove me wrong.
