Whilst hunters abilities and those of their pets have been worked on since I started playing (Feb 2012) one thing hasn't changed - the number of stable slots available. Hunter's can carry five pets with them and store up to twenty in the stable. Now, this is quite a few slots but if you're a bit of a hoarder like me it really isn't.
|The three main pets I use.|
So I've decided a stable clearance is in order. Whilst I'm not brave enough to just go and abandon them right now I will be black-listing some pets that will be the first to go as and when necessary. Below I'm going to share with you my collection of pets - their names (only those that I have regularly used are named), who they are (model, rare name etc.), any random info.
Pets I carry on me:
|Gary||Uhk'loc||Gary is my tanking pet. I named him after Gary Gannon (the presenter of Gamebreaker TV's Legendary)|
|Kitty||Winna's Kitten||Kitty has been my main cat pet since I tamed her.|
|Susan||Solix||Used for PvP. Caught on my epic taming day (see below)|
|Cyril||Core Hound||Not used as often now as I changed from BM to SV spec.|
|Cat (purple)||Gondria||I collected these as and when I found them using NpcScan / Silver Dragon. I got Ban'thalos on my epic taming day (see below).|
|Three pets that I don't use but would still like to keep.|
|Chimaera||Chillwind Chimaera||I got this pet as I wanted to try out a chimaera and have only used it the once.|
|Ralf||Dragonmaw Lashtail||Nothing special, just a raptor.|
|Raptor||Takk the Leaper||Takk the leaper. Taming this guy was a pain as he was leaping all over the place. Safe for now.|
|Scorpid||Black||Two versions of Madexx - black and green (I think). As I'd like to get all the different versions of Madexx these are currently safe.|
|Spider||Anthriss||Caught on my epic taming day. Safe for now.|
|Wolfgang||White||Random white wolf.|
|MurielMoth||Young Moth||The pet my hunter started with. Safe for now.|
|Scorpius||Clack the Reaver||I quite like this scorpid. Safe for now.|
|Razza||Green||Think this is the Ravasaur Matriarch.|
|Toxictusks||Dreadtusk||Love this guy! Safe for now.|
|Dog||Blue||Blue runed demon dog.|
|Lancelot||Sian-Rotam||Lancelot was my first cat pet. I replaced him with Kitty as my GM used/uses the same model. Safe for now.|
Producing this spreadsheet of the pets I have has really helped me to identify which pets I want to keep and which I'm not too bothered about. It also reminded me about my epic taming day in which I tamed Ban'thalos, Solix and Anthriss witihn 30minutes. I died a number of times and had to repair twice but I got them all in the end.
