Mumper said that pets were made to be balanced, that there is no one pet that is awesome against heaps of others. However, pets do change over with patches and I am wondering if some pets may get a smack with the nerfbat. All images here are from Warcraftpets.com.
As with most dragonkin she does pretty decent damage, but I tend to prefer dragonkin with a Tail Sweep, and I like my Dragons to have more attack power and less speed so they can get that extra hit in.
She does have a lot of magic damage spells, so great for those annoying flyers, with the strength of the dragonkin class.
I haven't managed to catch a rare one, I was hoping for a Battle Stone. However, I have never had a mechanical stone drop for me, but when I do, this will be the first little fella that I upgrade!
Chrominius is also a very powerful pet. With a Howl and Surge of Power, that would hurt. However, with a well timed avoidance move, you might be ok. Aza was showing it to me but I think I'll have to level it myself to see what kind of damage it does.
A hear a lot about what people's favourite pets are. Some pets which are really popular include Crabs and Snails - those snails are critters but have strong water attacks. And I've been surprised how much I use my moth. Pretty good with the Moth Dust and Cocoon Strike.
My favourite pets that I seem to always use are:
Beast: Spiders - Brittle webbing + Leech Life is awesome
Critter: Snail - Ooze touch and Dive are great attacks for a critter!
Dragonkin: Dark Whelpling because I like the combination of Call Darkness to reduce healing, Tail Sweep and Lift Off. I do also use my Nexus Whelpling a bit because Mana Surge is a really great spell (and it has a Tail Sweep)
Humanoid: Flayer hatchling and Gregarious Grell are my favourites. The Grell has an avoidance and a heal which is useful. I hardly use humanoids though these days.
Magic: Nordrassil Wisp and Ooze Slimeling. The Wisp is not strong but its avoidance is awesome. The Ooze does lots of damage.
Elemental: Venus because I like its heal (Plant) and its Stun Seed. I'm also liking the Water Waveling.
Mechanical: I only have my Clockwork Gnome but you can guess what's the next one I want levelled!
Aquatic: Eternal strider because of Pump and heal, and I like my crabs too with their whirlpool and heal.
Flying: Blue Moth, with Moth Dust and Cocoon Strike.
Undead: Scourged Whelpling for its Dreadful Breath, Call Darkness and Tail Swipe.
So what does everyone else like best?
