The only reason Camouflage isn't used is because it takes up the same slot as exhilaration. I guarantee you if it was BL everyone would use it.
I use fetch all the time. Chameleon has its uses in pvp.
Few changes you could add to the others.
Firework is now mini personal flare. Instead of selecting a location, you just fire a firework that dazes any stealth target around you.
Eagle eye, Now can detect enemies through walls, detect invisible. And can now cast hunter's mark from channel.

Removing skills doesn't help anyone. Plus eyes of the beast is SUPER FUN!
You just need to be creative in it's uses.

Melee BM. If they remove the whole exotic beasts, then you have it right there. SV.

But BM always felt like, sit back. Let your pet do all the damage while you make sure your pet buffs stay active. Compared to the other two.
As for the idea of ranged pets, While it sounds good on paper. It would either become a mandatory pet. Or a forbidden pet.
Mandatory: The pet can attack at range and now has the best advantage in pvp because it's harder to kite. It can attack out of melee range targets.

Forbidden: Depending on the pathing of dungeons/content it may be forbidden because as you move, the pet will decide to take an npc pathing and pull extra mobs. An example of that in modern wow would be necrotic wake with that ledge everyone jumps over. Pet's cant jump it second you step on it, your pet does a runner. Dismiss time is time wasted.

I miss the old cheetah aspect.. the new one is so useless.

Hate that there is bis pet... Special because clefhooves are so big. Bring back switching between the specs.ø and pref let BM switch between which family a pet is in for more utility.

Bring back res pets! This was sooo nice to have and made a pet more usefull

I miss a tank pet being actually able to tank.. also in dungeon.. i remember how fun it was to turn off grown and have my pet tank a boss... not possible now. I can see it could be a problem with hunter taking agro over a real tank but then give the real tank a possiblity to turn our pets growl off..

More fun utility for pets. Let them have a tank, healer and dps tree which you can use and mix to your liking. Pets feels meh. I personally HATE having 2 pets out but it's bis so gotta if I want to do damage.

Here's a fun concept. Since we're getting real friendly with dragons, why not have a pet item that's magical in nature? Over in Winterspring, there's some enemies that change appearance constantly. This is due to the blue dragonflight's presence, as the critters are constantly being polymorphed. What if, as a bonus for helping the blue dragons in whatever way, hunters get a glyph for Call Pet that, regardless of which pet you summon, the summoned pet LOOKS like a random stabled pet? This way, you can use the Clefthoof abilities (which are objectively the best), but you can VISUALLY have a different pet. While I like having my big beefy meat shield, I still think a glyph to have a random pet appearance would be nice. Bonus points if it shows the stabled pet's name too.

Want to use a cunning pet without the negatives? Done. Want to use that silly looking pet that's got bad abilities? Done. Want to RNG summon a second version of your glitched pets when you only have one? Done.

I love the random Call Pet idea! There are probably pvpers that would make frowny faces?

Personally, I say "who cares about pvp", but for a reasonable response; the effect could simply not work in battlegrounds and arenas. It would be pretty fun to see a scorpion spitting webs again, but for the sake of keeping it understandable in instanced pvp, the effect should simply be disabled.

I like the visuel idea but I prefer to be able to pick. Like the thing we could do with the wolf sb ?

Still think pets should have talents trees so you could build your pets Like you wanted. Just imagine having a pure healer pet, or a pure buff pet? Maybe make hunters more disarable in groups if our pets could do more different stuff

I been playing and I miss being able to move while I shoot. I miss auto facing the enemy once engaged. Both im used to in ff14 and it just flow better imo. The auto face is an option but I really like it and would choose it if it was able in wow.

Ooki double post but here goes

in ff14 my pet (companion) are always the same lvl as me, but it gains rank by doing stuff which gives me xp

currently my pet (specced healer) is rank 8

Image

It gives me acces to the healer stance and the free stance. At healer stance, the pet will always choose healing over other actions. in free stance it chooses freely between the actions.
I can teach the pet ALL the stances and the abilities in each stance but it takes time.. ALOT of time. I been running with this chocobo since lvl 30 ish and im lvl 85 now and only got enough points to put into the healing tree
examples of trees here
Image

I would love to be able to do that for my pet in wow. It would bring back the feeling of being connected to the pet. Not saying it should be excatly the same but it would bring back some of the uses for a pet.
Im sure wow would have its own system but this is just me trying to explain what i mean with pet talent trees

in wow you could build up ranks who can be spend with all pets so you dont need to do the ranks on every single pets. not sure how it would work but something like it would be super nice

Not to sound dismissive, but it's best for pets to be as simple and braindead as possible if you want them all to be usable/viable.
The second you start adding things like, ranged, healer, tank pets, ones that can fill in missing group buffs etc. You no longer get the choice on your pet.
You go from bringing a few you like, to Bringing what the group wants you to bring even if it feels bad. Meta will always outplay personal taste. Turning the current problem of clefthoof meta to Clefthoof/sporebat/dragonhawk meta.

I think a better idea would just be bringing back pet talent trees in the same way they used to be with a choosable spec.

The trees im linking should be viable for all pets and you should be able to switch between them.
There already is one meta pet and by allowing all pets access to spec trees like healer, tank or dps it would add to the utility not lessen it.
All families, all pets would be worth something. Like a crab pet but want it to be a dps pet, no problem. Your grp needs extra heal for a boss,no problem you just respec it. Ups the tank went linkdead, no problem you respec again.
Your damage will take a hit whdn using heal or tank specs but the utility will increase

I want Predatory thirst and Blood of the Rhino to become baseline pet skills across all pet types/abilities/families.

Extra skills for BM hunters to make non-exotic equal to exotic pets.

Swappable Pet Talents/Abilities.

Bern playing a bit and the pet stances needs changing...
Currently
on agressive my pet will attack what im attacking but not whats attacking me.
On defensive it will attack whats attacking me but not what im attacking unless it hits me


I want a stance which do BOTH. Attacks those hitting me even if I dont shoot on them and attack what im shooting on even if it's not hurting me. Not sure how it would be solved but ohh my i want it.

I would also like a battle ready stance that is a mix of defensive and assist where your pet attacks as you attack and attacks when a mob attacks you, I’m glad they removed aggressive stance because it just attacks hostile mobs for no reason and could get you into trouble if you need a bathroom break or to check your items and quests
