Patch 5.3.0 Undocumented Pet changes

Postby Dragonwizard » May 21st, 2013, 10:49 am

This is a pure copy and paste from the official wow forums. I had nothing to do with this post and full credit for putting it together goes to Simca (Blood Elf Pally)


Last Updated: May 19th, 2013 - All changes are in this post now.


Major Pet Changes

•Blighted Squirrel is now an Undead instead of a Critter.
•Celestial Dragon's Breath ability has been replaced by Flamethrower.
•Ruby Sapling, Teldrassil Sproutling, and Wither's ability lineups have been greatly changed: Poisoned Branch, Thorns, and Photosynthesis have shuffled positions.

Major Ability Changes

•Impale – Cooldown is now 2 turns, down from 4. (PTR Patch Notes say 3 turns, but that is wrong.) Now deals double damage below 25% instead of instantly killing the enemy.
•The version of Flamethrower used by the Essence of Competition and the Spirit of Competition now has no cooldown.
•Predatory Strike – Now deals double damage below 25% instead of instantly killing the enemy.
•Sticky Grenade – This damage cannot be dodged, blocked, or avoided.

Minor Ability Changes

•Amplify Magic and Ancient Blessing now specify they affect the "active pet" only instead of the "entire team".
•Darkflame now uses a synonym of the word "burn" instead of the word itself to avoid confusion with the Burn status effect.

Minor Pet Changes

•Tiny Red Dragon's icon is now red.
•Emerald Whelpling's description had a missing word added ("dragon").

•Shimmershell Snail's description had "Felwood" changed to "Darkshore".
•Baneling's source had the "C" in "Starcraft" capitalized.
•"Starcraft 2" was changed to "StarCraft II" in Mini Thor's source information.

Interesting, a major buff to the fairly mediocre interupt skills that only was useful for the swarm abilities.

Edit: A speed/speed Flayer Youngling have the highest speed of all pets with any of those interupt abilities.

The abilities haven't changed functionally, the tooltips were just changed to more accurately describe how they work. Kick etc have always applied a stun that lasts until the end of the round.

So the Celestial Dragon no longer has any Dragon-type attacks? That is pretty... Lame.

I could've sworn I upgraded a blighted squirrel the other day with an undead stone before this patch.

A couple minor things I noticed today:

The Darkmoon Tonk has a new animation for its Ion Cannon attack.

The Tiny Carps all have cool new icons!

Edit: Battle-Stones stack to 20 now!
