Postby Moused » June 7th, 2017, 9:40 pm

Has Blizzard ever explained why there are 5 classes that haven't gotten a Battle Pet from their class halls....as of right now Hunters...Priests...Mages, Pally's ..and Warriors as far as I know can't get a class hall battle pet...Druids get two.....DK get 3.....how come we get left out?

My guess: Because v7.3 will need to have something too.

Not all classes got a pet, some got toys instead.

Not that I would mind more pets! I would love one of those Suramar cleaning robots!

Some classes got pets or toys, some classes have got extra mount colours . . . paladins for example. :)

As a person who just can't throw away an effort put to her hunter, I can tell that at least Alliance side the hunter lore is but a hole that has been recently filled with a whatever was available around (quite fittingly if you think about it) instead of a preexisting, leading theme.

Same thing for warriors, but more monolithic this time.
Still that doesn't explain the paladin case.

Some complaints about mounts can be read but I can't get rid of a feeling that there was no perfect mount for a hunter, simply because there is such a variety of creatures one can tame. Same for a Companion of the Companions, if there was ever one at some point.

On the other hand, there are samples of beasts that have gained an out of universe popularity among hunter players. This is mostly the BM quirk and while I haven't played a BM, perhaps I'd welcome that kind of companion. (What if BM-only? Dunno.) There have been already some miniatures of these though, but still no mount like them, so I could understand if some miss a reference.

True it is tough for one mount type for a hunter but they could of done one of two things :
Make it an eagle mount , we only pledge are loyalty to the great eagle spirit at the hunter lodge and thus an eagle mount makes sense.
Or when a hunter completes that questline we learn the ability to mount our pets. Which would have been awesome

There is a large amount of inconsistency between what the classes get. Paladins get 3 extra mount colors, but only at power ascended. Priests get extra mount colors usuable only when in a certain spec, but available immediately, and no pets. Monks get 1 mount and 1 pet. DKs get 3 different mount colors AND 3 pets. Rogues get 3 extra mounts, a pet, and now soon rogue specific pick-pocket pets. Warriors get 3 mounts (Spec specific?) and no pets. Mages get the 3 mounts and a toy for pets.

Sooo, what you'll get is a giant toss-up.

Seems to be some debate on this one. I assume it's related to having the class order hall advancement option "The Vault," but don't know if that's been proven. I have "The Vault" and have the toy, which I didn't even know existed until I saw a box on the ground after I went to turn in my Vault ticket. I thought I was picking up yet another random combat item.

There's just a wide array of cosmetics and other items for various classes. See the above list (which is not all inclusive as there are shaman toys from the order hall that aren't listed). Not everything is about pets. And aside from the class mounts, all of it is available to anyone who puts some play time into one or more of the appropriate classes. Not every class hall needs pets (though I'm sure there will be more in 7.3).

That's what I thought, I have the vault on mine, but still no crate (I'm not really doing a lot of missions, and don't have a ticket every week), so since I don't have it, and wowhead doesn't seem to know really.. ^^

If you are talking of the class hall vendor toys, they aren't exclusive of the class hall, you can get them at various locations, that's why I didn't include them, you can check this list :

(but I'll add it to the list)

Little update on the rogue stuff, I was madly doing missions since launch to get the scroll of teleport: ravenholdt....I'm super OCD about getting every teleport item in the game. Turns out its not looted from the vault quest, it was simply in front of Noggenfogger on the floor.

I bet the crate will be the same thing, so go see him every day.

Honestly, I think priest is the only class that got 'shafted' on content. While the content does vary from class to class, most of them get a few perks.

The crate is tied to the Vault, as a random, extra bonus reward. When you go to turn in your ticket, it will sometimes spawn and Marin will say he has something special this time. Once you loot it and add it to your toybox, it doesn't seem to ever spawn again.

More disheartening than not getting a pet is sharing a pet with another class. Demon Hunters and Warlocks share another eye pet. Would it have been too difficult to give Warlocks a scaled down demon that didn't exist as a pet yet? Like a mini Doomguard or Shivarra... just something that's not a lame little eye.

That is interesting. The ones I was referring to were all so solidly shaman-themed, I didn't even think they'd be anywhere else.

I am hoping they will add pets for the classes that are missing them in the coming patches.
