Just wondering if there are "better" protoform pets. The time required to collect all the stuff to make all of them is disheartening. So I would prefer to invest in the superior ones if they exist.

Has anyone figured out which one is the 'hard' one to get if there is one? I'm so paranoid that when I'm catching wild pets that I'll come across it and pick a different one to capture and then kick myself for it and have a hard time finding it again.

Probably the two that most people are mentioning are the Momma Vombata & Scarlet Proto Avian, with the King Viperid a distant third.

The Momma Vombata & Scarlet Proto Avian share spawns with the Vombata Pups & Proto Avian Fledgling respectively. The issue is, you can kill the pups to try and force spawn the Momma, but the Fledglings have to be killed in a battle, since they aren't attackable with your character's abilities.

maybe it's just me but some of these pet models are almost like placeholders and are very basic/simple, when compared to the models of so many great looking pets in previous xpacs. I agree that some are pretty small too. hoping for trainers and maybe another "family" achieve later. a dungeon would be nice too. ;) thanks for the great article!

I think the idea was to make them look almost like 'prototypes' of the pets we've come to see in our world, but I understand what you're saying. We might see something added in the 9.2.5 patch (that we may or may not get), and I'm not sure if they're willing to look at dungeons again, yet. I'm not saying it won't happen, but my expectations are low for any more pet content (outside of collecting) for the rest of SLs.

And no problem! I'm happy to put it all together ^^ (edited)

Thanks for this article! I captured a few pets in ZM last night, and noticed a continuation of a very frustrating trend: The pets are SO small. Like the vombat, you can barely see it! Maybe people generally don't mind, but as I play fully zoomed out the pets are just a little dot following me around. Some Slands pets escaped this, like the baubleworms, but the Count? You can barely see him at all. Same with Hearthy.

Sorry for the rant, I just don't know anywhere else where I might find people who feel the same way. I've already sent in a suggestion but, well. Not exactly hopeful anything's gonna change.

No worries! I think quite a few people agree that some of the pets are way smaller than they need to be.

Glad it isn't just me! I think it started in BfA, because a raven pet I got during that expansion is considerably smaller than my Gilnean raven. Not exactly a thorough study, maybe I should look into it more...

Version 9.2 release date has been confirmed, and the content about pet battles is very poor. Although we have dozens of new pets and some new abilities, these pets and abilities are too weak. In my opinion, 9.2 doesn't have any useful pets, like we have twenty different frogs, but we all know they are garbage.

Also, 9.2 doesn't have any new pet trainers, it seems pet battles have been abandoned.

The frog has a nice combo but meh stats, otherwise yeah the abilities are more like for decoration. Whirling Talons is pretty OP though even if one embraced the previous power creep.
