PTR 4.2: Mounts and Pets
Ground mounts just might become more fashionable among hunters in patch 4.2. The reason is because our pets will now remain at our side while mounted. Here’s the latest screenshot from the PTR using [Reins of the Spotted Frostsaber] and Duskstalker.
There are a number of mount/pet combinations that will appeal to hunters. Some combinations even have an appropriate non-combat companion to go along with them, including [Reins of the Golden King] with Sambas for Alliance and [Horn of the Brown Wolf] with Deathmaw and the brown [Worg Carrier] pup for Horde.
Here are a couple more appealing combinations (not necessarily an exhaustive list):
- [Reins of the Kor'Kron Annihilator] with Black Madexx,
- [Yellow Qiraji Resonating Crystal] with a Yellow Silithid,
- [Reins of the Black War Bear] with a Black Bear, and
- [Riding Turtle] with a Green Turtle.
Pets will automatically go into passive stance when the player is mounted, and the pet ability bar will be turn grey. If you fly away on a flying mount, your pet will disappear and will not reappear again when you land until fully dismounted.
