    Default Pet Changes in 4.2

    Not liking the Assist/Defensive changes. On Assist, your pet will attack when you do, but changes target when you do as well, making it impossible to sick'em on on target while you focus on another in that stance. On defensive, he'll attack only WHEN YOU OR IT IS HIT or when you command him to attack. So the caster will just stand there casting and melee will run at you but until they hit you, your pet does nothing.

    I've got all the fancy macros and goodies and yes I can send my pet in first, blah blah yakkity smackity. It boils down to the fact that I have to put a macro for attack powers with /petattack at the top to get the same results.

    Also, pet's out when mounting? They took that away for a reason. Now all he does is draw additional attention and when you do enter combat, they slow down to run speed and get left behind anyway.

    Also, my wife's Warlock pet is doing wierd things and just going off on his own sometimes. and I've witnessed on several times my wolf attacking caster NPC caster pets randomly.

    I'm sure it's something I'll adjust to, but I don't like it.

    my wife - personally- loves AND hates the pet out when mounting

    hates it- it draws aggro-

    Loves it...she missed her pets while she rides on the ground.

    I used to love having my pet run along side my mount. What I really liked was being able to send my pet to DRAW AGGRO from mobs ahead of me so I could ride by unmolested, or to escort lower level friends through a higher level zone.

    Besides, it just looked cool. A hunter with his pet running along side his mount, it just feels right.

    I'd agree....If he'd keep up.

    Heh. You must not be stocking the Kibbles-N'-Bits any longer. I found Scooby Snacks work too.
