Blizzard has added two exciting new features to the WoW Armory, including the ability to see details on the pets in your stable and a Hunter Pet Talent Calculator!
I first heard about this when Pike from Aspect of the Hare posted about the new features yesterday, and then several readers sent me e-mail and posted comments about it. (Unfortunately at the time I was unable to get to my own blog to post — very frustrating!)
Pike posted a link to her own armory page, where you can see the details — including name, level, family, and talent tree — for each of her famous pets in the lower right-hand corner. Very cool.
Another example: here’s the Armory page for Kaet, my level 70 Dwarf hunter. As you can see, Kaet currently only has two of her three trademark crabs with her, plus an unnamed silithid. (More on Kaet coming soon.)
Anyway, here’s what Blizzard had to say:
- Hunter Pet talent trees: Hunter character profiles now display their pets’ talent specializations. The currently viewed pet can be selected from a drop-down menu on the hunter’s talent page that includes the pet’s in-game name and creature type.
- Hunter Pet Calculator: The Armory’s Talent Calculator includes a new Pet Calculator tab that displays the three possible talent trees for pets. Each talent tree (Ferocity, Tenacity, and Cunning) is accompanied by a grouping of the creature types that use them.
[Aside] You may be wondering why I didn’t post the Armory link for Mania, who is after all my main character. That’s a bit of a story, but the short version is that I transferred Mania to a new realm to help out a friend, which also involved a name change. My friend has requested that I stay more anonymous on the new realm for her sake, and I have agreed to that.
I’ll continue to refer to the character as Mania because that’s who she is in my thoughts (even though it causes confusion between me and her, as it were!). But that’s why there’s no Armory link here to my main.
