Simple Hunter question

Discussion in 'WoW General Discussion' started by Ricknbacker, Oct 1, 2008.

    No my Hunter's not simple :) Maybe I am!

    I've a favourite best I've had for a long time (around lvl 20). I'm now lvl 69 and for a long time my beasts training points have almost stood still.

    I know the rate at which they rise is linked to my pets base level. Does this mean I need to get myself a new pet at a much higher lvl to rack up useful training points.

    Any recommendation for a BE pet at this lvl?

    The pet training points are calculated by (Loyalty Level - 1) * Exp. Level. So...
    If you have a pet with loyalty of 5, and it hits 30, you get (5-1)*30, or 120. Lets say the pet then hits loyalty level 6, you get an extra 30 points from the loyalty level going up. However, now you have a very loyal pet, but your points will slow down a lot. A loyalty level 6 pet dinging 31 will get 155, and at 32, it gets 160. So, five points per level after loyalty hits the cap.

    If your pet is the same level as you (or close to it) and you like the pet, I'd say keep it. Going out and taming a new pet won't do you much good. If your pet is 68 and top loyalty, you have 340 points (counting the used ones). If you go get another 68, it's loyalty to you will be reset, it will be untrained (except for what it might know) and when it's loyalty gets back to max, you will still have the same formula making you gain points slowly.

    It's just the way it is...

    All this loyalty stuff is going away in 3.0 =)

    Thanks, what I've been doing wrong is assuming that my pet should be trained in everything as opposed to a select pattern like talents.

    I'll stick with him and yes thanks noted re 3.0 and talents 4 pets

    Don't forget you can also tame other animals to get certain skills to train a pet as well. Like my Cat has Bite instead of Claw, and I had him learn Dash as well.

    Patch 3.0 will probably be out in a little less than 2 weeks. I don't know if I'd worry too much about the current system.

    I do know pets will no longer be able to have Bite and Claw together if my info is correct.

    Don't bother, if you would read the new patch notes, you would know that the pet talent points are going away and you get a new pet talent tree to play with.

    New pet things are a bit tricky and fun to mess with.

    Sadly you can only put 4 of the pet talents on your pet bar at a time.

    Sweet thing is all tameables are 5 levels lower then you when you tame them, regardless of the pets level. :thumbup1:
