And all that was before pets had any actual affect on gameplay, now that you can actually battle with them(and store pets are stronger) then people tend to have even more issue with it.
    Store pets and achievement pets and some hard to get pets are all considered rare. They are no stronger than a rare quality pet you can catch

    Yeah sorry didn't flesh that out enough. They are stronger than normal pets and on probably on par with rares. Note that is just what I have read because I don't do pet battles so take it with a grain of salt.

    As far as high quality goes, the pheonix hatchling is the last high quality pet released that I can remember pre pet store. The game has been increasing in quality steadily since release everywhere from pet models, mount models, gear models, areas etc... Yes vanilla pets were low quality but everything was low quality in vanilla by todays standards. While pet quality has gone up with the rest of the game, that only applies to pets acquired via the pet store. It doesn't bother me terribly, but it is fairly obvious to see why it bothers other people.

    maybe just maybe they decided to give us something for wow 8 anniversary?

    To all those saying 'maybe its the anniversary pet this year' i really hate to put a damper on that but... First they said 'Adoption details coming soon' if it were a 'mail to all toons who log in this week' i doubt they would word it as adoption. More then likely it will be pet store bought. They have also said before they did not want to get in the habit of handing out pets for things like random anniversaries(other then milestone years, like 5-10-...), doubt i could find the blue post about it cause its a few years old now, though im sure a few other people remember it.

    99% chance it will be pet store.
    .5% chance it will be anniversary
    .5% chance its something else no one has thought of, perhaps comes with some other merchandise, some 'real life' store deal, maybe even something with the megablocks, who knows.

    of course now that ive said this, its 100% chance it will be for the anniversary just so i have to eat my own words, yay me.

    You know, if part of it were going to charity like the pet that was made as support for the Earthquake/Tsunami for Japan, then that would be okay in my book. But if all profits are going to Blizz like some of their mounts and other pets, then that really pisses me off because ppl are already paying $15/month. If the game is F2P then have at it and charge ppl for whatever, but $15 a month and more if you a pet/mount collector? Screw u Blizz

    Recent unique and non pet-store pets include Crawling Claw, the celestial dragon, the fossilized Raptor hatchling, the argent squire/grunt, Creepy Crate, Corehound pup, De-weaponized mechanical companion... I could go on. None of which required the pet store.

    I'm a mount collector. I have every pre-3.1 raid/dungeon drop mount in the game, save for the old amani warbear and grand black war mammoth. I've bought a total of ONE store mount, and that was the sparkle pony when it first came out. I in no way feel obligated to purchase any of the others.

    Who needs working ink vendors when you can pay money on top of your sub fee for a pet?

    Be happy you don't have to buy living steel from alchemists to make anything worthwhile. And no one is forcing you to buy the pet.
