According to MMO-Champion, there are some important pet-related changes expected for Patch 3.0.8. The good news is that there will be a new 100-pet achievement called Lil’ Game Hunter. The reward, [Little Fawn’s Salt Lick], will presumably allow you to summon a little deer pet! I hope this means that Blizzard plans to add more new pets to the game, because, as it stands now, collecting 100 pets is more like a feat of strength than an achievement!
Okay, now for the bad news. Apparently, the Gifts and Pledges of Adoration from the Love Is In The Air event will become soulbound. Unless they change Peddlefeet to bind-on-use, there will be no more farming him on alts to try to attain this vanity pet. Perhaps Blizzard will increase the drop rate to compensate for this change. We can only hope!
