  • Bloodthirsty no longer generates Happiness.
  • Carrion Feeder no longer restores Happiness.
  • The Feed Pet ability now instantly heals 50% of the pet's health. Cannot be used in combat. Requires diet-appropriate food.
  • Guard Dog no longer causes Growl to generate additional Happiness.
  • The Happiness/Pet Loyalty System has been removed. Hunters will no longer have to manage Happiness for their pets, and the previous damage bonus for pets being happy will now be baseline for all tamed pets.

  • Glyph of Mend Pet is now Glyph of Greater Proportion, which increases the size of the pet slightly.

  • Arcane Missiles damage has been increased by 13%.
  • Blizzard damage has been increased by 70%.

    What a surprise, GC = Mage. Mages buffed. The question begs to be asked. WHY FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO MAGES NEED BUFFING. Roll on the warrior nerfs :S LOL.

    I don't, it just seems like such an obvious improvement, even if it's only a slight one.

    Changes are on the PTR today, and it's not Glyph of GREATER Proportion, its actually LESSER Proportion.


    Who wants smaller pets?
