gruntlings and pages
Gruntlings and Pages were morally questionable to some. There was a large thread with outrage at the notion of sending your Page or Gruntling into battle. I do not have any moral objections against using these pets, I personally consider the Wolvar Pup and Oracle Hatchling to be more questionable. I gladly use these orphans in pet battles! I would also send Gruntlings and Pages into battle. I however respect the wishes of those who take offense in sending a child (of the same race) into battle. It does create some diversity I guess!
I like using the Tuskarr Kite & Dragon Kite. The Dragonkite, especially, is a flying pet with a unique moveset. I personally would like to see more kites that can be used in battles. Kites sadly are quite peacful and decorative in their nature.
Blizzard might even have chosen to keep the TCG kites unique and different from the newer kites.
I am quite excited about sending a balloon into battle.
Who's with me here ..could we stir up some support here to get these pets to see some action ?!?!? In an ideal world, Blizz will cater to the masses and bend to our collective will!
I like that there are companion pets that can NOT be used in battles. We already have hundreds of companions that can battle. Why would you want to make sure that every pet would be capable of battling? There are enough options out there for people who like to battle. I feel that diversity will be better.
There might be some people out there who would prefer peaceful companions. I am not one of them. But why shouldn't these people get catered to, if there is almost no additional benefit for pet battlers.
Sorry for not agreeing with you!
