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.
