Retired Veteran Raider: [T14] 10/16H, [T15] 12/13H, [T16] 7/14H
Currently playing a Black Mage Scholar & Summoner Bard on FFXIV and crying that
RDMs don't exist yet SCHs are gimped WHMs and SMNs are gimped BLMs there's not enough to do in a week
would be super cool actually. woukd be great if they did it.
Rogues can use almost half the legendaries in the game. I don't think they'd make a legendary pet without giving rogues Tame Beast
The problem with the pet is that it would require quite a bit of coding to make it NOT scale with you so you wouldn't use it forever and ever.
To avoid the scaling how bout make a legendary bow that when equipped auto changes your pet to the 'legendary pet'? And for those who prefer their normal pet make it a buff thats applied on equip that can be cancelled
This would actually be really cool. I remember doing the daily quests for the Raptor in Un'gori, for the mount. It felt great to actually raise the pet myself and eventually learn to ride it. There was a much stronger bond there. I would love for something similar for a Hunter, where we get to raise the pet from an egg/as an infant and eventually it becomes a full-fledged combat pet. Maybe we'd be able to use it as a mount as well?
The only issue I suppose is that it can't be linked to the whole Legendary thing: a pet which is better than all others is a pet that everyone would eventually end up using, especially since pets scale with your level. So it'd need to be a pet which conferred no extra combat benefits, but looked really cool and had a great questline for it.
Furthermore, it'd be nice if you could choose one pet from a selection, to allow for more difference between Hunters. So there'd be a Wolf, a Cat, a Bird... Maybe some others too.
Essentially, I'd love more ways of getting different and unique pets without them all being spirit beasts.

Well, officially speaking Blizzard don't read these forums. However, their CMs will almost certainly check out fansite forums such as this one to try and get as much feedback as possible on a wide range of areas. So honestly, you shouldn't really need to seek out a blue response, or try your hardest to get a blue to read it. Chances are they will do, or already have!
I guess the best you can do is re-post the thread on the official forums, where it will definitely be read. Still not certain for it to be replied to, but hey.
