    Can hunters have a ranged pet?

    When I'm survival, I usually kill the mobs before they reach me while leveling, and my pet usually gets only few strikes in. Is there a ranged pet which can maybe do some more damage?
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    No, there are no hunter ranged pets.

    I believe Wind Serpents can still technically attack from range- they'll still shoot off their lightning bolt ability while running in, but they don't have any ranged basic attacks.

    More to the point, their lightning bolt ability and chimera's lightning breath and dragonhawk's flame breath don't actually do damage, they just debuff the target.

    I mean and I am not sure I have only ever really used Boars,Spiders, and Cats. But I am pretty sure some Beatles have poison spit

    No, worms used to, as well as serpents, but that just debuffs now, no damage.

    we need more ranged pets, and blizz need to get the coding done that if there flying pets out, they can engage target that are in the air, as well as fly with u while on a flying mount.

    Unless flying combat ever made a come back, I highly, HIGHLY doubt blizzard has any intention on allowing a pet to engage in combat while you are on a mount flying. Take ten seconds to think about why that would be a bad idea without some sort of air-combat feature beforehand...
