Considering Your Hunter’s Pet

For those Hunters out there, the question of which pet is the best arises fairly quickly. You’ll probably have a simple cat or spider to start with, limited by the creatures that exist in your general area. But, after a while, you’ll be able to travel far enough that you’ll want to know what other options are available. So, it’s good to know which pets are the strongest and which offer the best advantages for the clever player.

At the low end of the spectrum is the bat. Now, the bat is a small and likely very weak pet. However, with the ability to screech, shared with the Carrion bird and the Owl, the Bat can be very useful in disorienting your enemies for just long enough to kill them.

However, for those of you that are interested in pets that will not only have useful abilities but deal out their fair share of damage, there are plenty of such creatures. Pets such as the Bear, Board, Cat, Wolf or Spider are all powerful beasts capable of inflicting substantial sums of damage. The key benefit to being able to inflict large amounts of damage with a pet lie in that you can wait at a great distance from your enemy and target them with your pet. However, keep in mind that you’ll want to be careful of the smaller pets as they might just as easily be killed first and are not easy to come by.

Another important aspect of pet ownership is the necessity of paying attention to the needs of your pet in between fights. You must be able to feed your pet, keep an eye on what they eat and ensure that they are not left with little to no health. You must also complete the proper quests and keep the correct items on hand at all times to ensure that you can actually find and bind the correct pet.

Once you’ve decided what kind of pet you want and completed the correct steps to prepare for them, you must be willing to put the time into researching the exact benefits of each pet available. Make sure you know exactly what you want from your pet, beyond skills and damage and choose correctly. If you take care of them and choose wisely, they will be around for some time to come.

There are dozens of World of Warcraft pet guides or advice columns out there designed to assist you in figuring out exactly which pet will be of the most benefit to you. Finding that pet is the first and most important thing you can do as a hunter when you reach the right skill level and eventually can make you one of the more powerful character classes in the game.

Things to Consider Before Buying a Dog

Many factors need to be considered by a family, before bringing home a new pet.

Some are as followed:


What about the gender of the dog? Are you interested in a male or female? Will you breed the dog once it is grown? If a breeding program is not in its future, consider neutering the dog. Are you interested in a large or a small dog? Often, potential owners don’t consider the frame size and weight of the puppy when it becomes an adult. Also think about the grooming needs of a long-haired dog versus a short-haired one.


The dog will also need regular veterinary care. All these costs can add up, especially if you’re on a limited budget. What type of dog do you want? Purebred or mixed breed? Research the traits of the breed that interests you. Be aware that some breeds have specific benefits or problems. In addition, some purebreds can be very expensive. Perhaps adopting from your local animal shelter is an option.


Another important factor is your family’s lifestyle. Do you work all day? How much free time do you have? Remember, a new puppy will require four or more feedings a day and will need to go out just as often. Do you spend a lot of time traveling or entertaining? Do you have small children or other animals at home? Are you physically able to handle a dog? What about your location? Do you own a home or rent an apartment? Will your landlord allow pets? Do you live in the city or in a rural area? Is there enough fenced-in yard space for the dog to properly exercise?


Think about the role your new dog will play in your family. Will it be used as for:

a) My son/daughter/children

Trust me; this will be YOUR dog! After the ‘honeymoon period’, the kids may only play with the dog, occasionally. They may groan and grumble about any dog-related responsibilities, doing them, begrudgingly, only after significant prodding from you. As children’s interests and activities change, over the years, their level of involvement with the dog will most likely be, inconsistent, at best. Additionally, your children, especially, young children, will need to be ‘trained’ in how to behave with the dog and will need to be supervised when with the dog.

b) Protection

I know some may disagree but, it is my opinion, that the only time is it a good idea to get a dog for the purpose of protection is in professional or agricultural situations and only when the owner/trainer is humane and knowledgeable of dog behavior and dominant dog training/handling. In all other situations – probably 99.9% – an alarm system, security fence, or other measures are much more appropriate and effective.

c) To breed puppies

If you’ve read the third paragraph of this piece and still feel this way, there is probably little I can offer to change your mind. But, just in case, let me restate the case a little more thoroughly. The breeding of dogs is a responsibility not to be taken lightly. If it is not your intention to remain responsible for all of your puppies for their entire lives, including being willing to take back and care for those who may find themselves homeless, do not enter into this endeavor. If you are planning on breeding for profit, understand that there are much easier, more profitable and ethical ways to make a buck. Dogs are living beings and dog breeding requires a significant investment of time, money, labor, knowledge, both academic and practical, patience, and emotional fortitude, to be done responsibly and humanely. Please visit a few of the shelter and rescue websites, or your local shelter, and witness the problem yourself. View the faces of the homeless dogs and talk to the volunteers and staff who, all too often, must take that ‘final walk’ with them.


Once you’ve decided on the type of dog you want and where you will purchase it, do not buy a puppy on the first visit. Instead, potential owners leave, think about the decision, and then go back. Avoid the temptation of buying two or more puppies. A single puppy will bond to its owner better and will be easier to train.

Hunters Pet Guide For World of Warcraft

There Are a Number of New Hunter Pets Coming In Mists of Pandaria.

If you have had a Hunter as your main in WoW since the days of 1.0, you know just how important it is to have a good pet by your side.

At the same time one of the great things about every new expansion is that we get a slew of new pets to play with new special abilities.

The big question that has to be on every hunter’s mind as the closed beta gets into full swing is what new pets we will get and what special abilities they will offer.

Of course most of are also wondering if we are going to be getting additional slots since by now most hunters have long since filled up the extra 20 slots we got in the Cataclysm expansion.

Currently in the closed beta there are six new tamable pets, of which two are exotics, just for those of us who still spec Beast Mastery. The list runs as follows:

Porcupine: Special Ability Paralyzing Quill. The porcupine fires a round of quills in an AoE that paralyzes all players within range for 2 seconds.

Goat: Blizzard has finally got our goat or at the very least given us one that uses Trample to kick up a cloud of dust that reduces melee and ranged attack speeds by 20% for a full 30 seconds.

Crane: You can find these guys all over Pandaria relaxing along the rivers. The have Lullaby that puts your target to sleep for up to 4 seconds. For fun you also get Trick which lets you command them to do a fun trick.

Basilisk: These guys have been in every area of the game since opening day, in Mists you can now stop killing them and learn to love them.

With Petrifying Gaze your pet will turn your target to stone for 3 seconds and render them immobile and impervious to damage. Sadly this only works on your foes.

Water Strider: This is the first of the exotics and requires you to spec for BM if you want one for your very own. It has two special abilities:

Still Water: Infuses party members within range with still water which increases their spellpower by 10% and critical strike chance by 5%. Surface Trot lets the hunter and the water strider walk across water for 10 minutes. Any damage will cancel the effect.

Quillen: The Quillen is the other exotic pet and is found only in the Wandering Isle.

The Quillen has two special abilities as follows:

Eternal Guardian: Restores a dead target to life, much like Battle Rez, with 20% health and mana.

Fearless Roar: is a buff that gives all party members a 5% boost in critical strike chance.

WoW Hunter Pets Guide

In WoW there are a few hunter pets with unique or rare skins which just look plain awesome! Read on to find out which wow hunter pets you ought to be thinking about getting if you want something unique and funky.

Pet 1 – Trachela

This is a two-headed, white bird with black bands on it. It can be found in Terokkar on Carrion Hill and is the only bird with this skin. The good thing about this bird is that it is on a normal re-spawn timer so you wont have to wait an age just to get it to spawn.

Pet 2 – Echeyakee or Sian-Rotam

These are the only two cats in the game which have white lion skins. Echeyakee can be found at level 16 during the quest named after it and can be a pretty cool pet right through to the higher-levels. If you missed out on Echeyakee then Sian-Rotam is a great chance to get the same skin later on, you can find him on Frostsaber Rock in Winterspring (he’s level 60).

Pet 3 – Uhk’loc

This is the only rare gorilla skin in game and comes in the form of a white, level 52 mob. You’ll find him in the back of the cave in Fungal Rock which is in the top right-hand corner on Un’Goro Crater. They’re pretty good looking pets to have and with the white skin it’ll be sure to stand-out.

Pet 4 – Zarakh

This level 19 spider has a unique look to it – spiky, thin black legs with a black and red body create a great overall appearance. If you are interested in taming it then head over to Bloodmyst Isle – the mob is part of a quest thought so you may need to wait for it to re-spawn.

Pet 5 – Ironjaw

This level 63-64 wolf has a unique brown tinge to its fur, it’s quite a subtle effect but is certainly enough to be noticed. You’ll find it near Firewing Point in Terokkar – it isn’t an elite so should be easier than most to tame.

WoW Hunter Pet Guide & Info

In World of Warcraft a Hunter has several different types of pets to choose from. DPS, or damage per second are pets that deal more damage than other pets. These types of pets do not take as much damage as others but are more useful in Battlegrounds and PvP settings. The main choices are bat, cats, owls, raptors, spiders, wind serpents, and other ones that follow the pattern of having more DPS than armor or health.

The best pet for DPS in my opinion is probably the cat. It is a favorite among most players especially since it can learn more abilities than any other pet by learning from all of the three general abilities. Cats can do more damage and are easier to feed since they have a diet of fish and meat, which doesn’t have to always be cooked.


1. Bite- pretty simple, they can bite and do damage with their teeth.

2. Claw- damage from their claws.

3. Dash- ability to rush over to the target in a burst of speed.

4. Prowl- makes the cat nearly impossible to see and is very similar to the Night Elves Shadowmeld ability.

Cats offer more selection than any other family of pets with dozen of colors of fur, patterns, and models. Because of this, there are a lot of different types of cats from the lowest levels of hunters to the higher levels that are unique looking from each other. Also in World of Warcraft there are special cats such as the Badlands Cougar which has an even faster attack speed of 1.0 which is amazingly fast.

Best WotLK Hunter Pets

Hunter pets can be separated into three categories:

o Tank pets – these are the sort of pets that will take huge amounts of damage without wincing while you are a couple of yards behind them pouring on the ranged damage. Tank pets are ideal for leveling up a hunter because they will withstand long battles.

– Bears, boars, crabs, crocolisks, gorillas, scorpids, tallstriders, turtles, these tend to do a good job as tank pets

o DPS pets – these are pets that will deal considerably more damage than their tank counterparts while not being able to absorb nearly as much damage. These are pets that you take with you in a PvP setting, because in a Battleground people will almost always attack you and not your pet, so a tank would be useless while what is important in a BG is the most damage that you can do the fastest, the better

– Bats, cats, owls, raptors, spiders, windserpents will be good DPS pets

o Not-quite-tank-not-quite-DPS pets – these are pets that are rather resilient, much more so than a DPS pet and less than a tank, and who pack a decent amount of damage but less damage than DPS but more than a tank can, they’re middle of the road pets, they’ll do well in both areas but not enough to excel in either one of them.

– Carrion birds, hyenas, wolves, are good middle of the road pets

For your first pets you should get a bear or a boar, because at level 10 frankly that’s all you can afford without breaking your meager bank.

If you don’t want to waste your valuable play time and money, be it real or in-game money, trying out guides and builds that may not work then you should…

WoW Hunter Pets Guide

So, what is the best pet for a hunter in World of Warcraft? Well, that’s an impossible question to answer. The question is, what is the best pet for your World of Warcraft hunter right now. Read on and I well tell you what I mean.

Just like any class in World of Warcraft there are ups and downs during game play. All characters go through times when you can just barely stay alive but then you get some great new equipment and all of a sudden you are kicking butt. Well this works the same with a hunters pet selection.

I like to think of my hunter pets as another member of my party, just like a mage, rogue or warrior. A hunters pet should complement the hunters current abilities just like a well balanced party.

If you have not found any better equipment in a while you may be weak and more vulnerable. In this case I recommend using a tank type pet that eats easy to find food like a bear which has a high level of health, medium level armor and eats bread, cheese, fish, fruit, fungus and most importantly meat which is very easy to find. A boar is also a good choice as it has the same diet and similar attributes.

On the flip side, if your hunter is well fortified and you feel comfortable defense wise then you might as well go for a high DPS pet such as a bat or a cat both of which have medium health and low armor but high DPS to destroy your foes quicker. A cat has an easier to manage diet of fish and meat where as the bat eats fruit and fungus, it all depends on what is more available to you where you are. You don’t have to go to extremes but if you have a good opportunity to switch pets you might as well do it. I know that taming a new pet can sometimes be difficult so I don’t recommend changing pets unless you really see potential benefit in doing so.

If you don’t feel the need to or simply don’t want to change pets very often there are other great options that are easy to maintain and have medium level attributes. One of my favorites are carrion birds which are highly versatile with medium health, medium armor, medium DPS and are easy to feed since they eat fish and meat and they look very cool too.

As a close second to carrion birds I recommend hyenas which also have medium health, medium armor, medium DPS and eat fruit and meat. But I have to admit that my true favorite across the board pets are wolves. Stat wise they are not much different than carrion birds or hyenas but they look cool using bite and dash abilities and have a unique personality which makes them a bit more fun to play with. They are also medium health, medium armor and medium DPS but only eat meat, still you got to try a wolf as a pet to really know how cool they are.

Wotlk Hunter Pet Guide

Here’s a Wotlk Hunter Pet Guide with WoW Hunter Pets Organized by Type. You’ll want to read this because having a pet is like displaying a trophy, and you’ll want the best possible pick if you want to experience everything that the game has to offer. A good pet makes a good first impression for other people and having the right one for the job will save your skin in many scenarios.

There are three different types of pets according to their roles. First of all are the pets that excel in trapping and manipulating enemies. These pets may not do a lot of damage, but they can prevent enemies from getting in close and opening up opportunities to unleash a lot of damage. This helps a lot if you’re fighting something that can kill you or your pet really quickly if they get within range of you. This group of pets include Bats, Sporebats, Chimaeras, Serpents, Wind Serpents, Birds of Prey, Dragonhawks, Nether Rays, Ravagers, Silithids, and Spiders.

Next are the damage-dealing pets. These are useful if you need to kill something quickly and another player is distracting the enemy. If you don’t have another player but you’re fighting weak enemies, these types of pets can also be used. A damage-dealing pet is nice for grinding (progressively killing a large number of enemies) which you’ll do a lot when leveling up or earning gold. These pets include Carrion Birds, Raptors, Cats, Core Hounds, Hyenas, Moths, Wasps, Spirit Beasts, Devilsaurs, Tallstriders, and Wolves.

Finally you have damage-taking pets. These pets are good when your character is too vulnerable to take a lot of hits and you need a pet to distract the enemy. They can take a lot of damage while maintaining steady attacks on the enemy, freeing you up to fire away with your weapon. These pets include Boars, Bears, Crocolisks, Crabs, Rhinos, Gorillas, Scorpids, Warp Stalkers, Turtles, and Worms.

World Of Warcraft Hunter Pet Guide

Here you have it, the guide you’ve been waiting. This World of Warcraft Hunter’s pet guide will list the best pets a hunter in this fantastical world will use. We will go into details about some of them and leave the lesser beasts to the weak. We answer some of your questions and send you away with a range of useful information so you can go head first into the world of the unknown with confidence.

So, we will start out with listing all pets and showing you what their abilities are and what some of them ea,t so you can win every battle with beastly ease. We will first focus on the animals with the abilities to slow you enemies down, which give you the opportunity to do what you need to do – even if it is to just run away.

First in this World of Warcraft Hunter’s pet guide we show you the Bat, which could screech the ears off a deaf monkey. The bat shares this ability with the Carrion bird and the owl. This skill is very useful during battle if you are looking to disorientate your enemy for a short while – before you kill him, of course.

If you are looking to do more damage, you will be happy to know that the game does offer animals with a healthy appetite. In the World of Warcraft Hunter’s pet guides the Bat and the Carrion bird will fall into this category, along with Bear, Boar, Cat, Crab, Wolf and Spider among many others. Now this ability allows the player, you, to be quite a distance away from the target. It’s a really simple way to not lose any power and bring your enemy down to his knees. However, sending your tiny pet out to do your dirty work has its disadvantages, like it getting killed before it kills your enemy. These beasts don’t come at a cheap rate, so be sure to keep this mode of attacked right up to the last minute – when you are sure your animal will only sustain the minimal amount of injury, and won’t die.

The World of Warcraft Hunter’s pets guide also explains that before you can tame and train your new pet you have to be disciplined. You have to be willing to learn from the animal as the animal is always willing to learn from you. As in life everything with a pulse needs to maintain nutritional eating guidelines, in the World of Warcraft Hunters pet guide we let you know that there is an abundance of food for your pets all over this wonderful world. These pets eat anything from bread, cheese, fungus and fruit to something more substantial like fish and meat (there is nothing better than a nice piece of steak.)

Now, even though it seems like a walk in the park to raise a pet, making a choice of which pet to raise, is not that easy. There is a skill to choosing your pet in WOW and this World of Warcraft Hunter’s pet guide will show you a basic way of doing this.

So, you want to know the best pet will be for you? This issue comes up a lot, so don’t feel like you are alone in this.
