Cataclysm Changes on Pet Leveling

99.9% of all World of Warcraft hunters agree: leveling pets has always been a huge pain in the rear end. Right? Right.

Yes, Blizzard has helped us quite a lot when they added pet auto-leveling, where any pet that you tamed would automatically increase its level (if it was lower) to our current level minus 5. Imagine that you are level 80 and you tame a level 60 pet. In the good(?) old days you would have to level the pet from 60 to 80. When patch 3.3.0 came out, the pet automatically levels to 75 (80 - 5 -- see how good I am with math?) and, all of the sudden, we just needed to bring our beloved companion through 5 levels. With 3.3.0, pets also only need 5% of the hunter’s XP to level. Yeah!

And this is how it goes right now.

In Cataclysm, as of now, your pet still needs only 5% the XP we need to level BUT the small difference is that whenever you level a new pet, it will be 3 levels below you and not 5. Of course this is all due to change but, nonetheless, this is great news for us, since it will allow us to actually use the whole bunch of nice, cute, fluffy, deadly pets we’re going to collect, thanks to the new stable (more on that on a future post).

  1. One of the core values we live by here at Blizzard is "Embrace Your Inner Geek." We play countless wow gold games, we collect comics and card games, we love cutting-edge technology and computer hardware, we're fascinated by wow gold kaufen science and discovery, and many of us are movie buffs. Movies represent the combined imaginations of talented writers and visionaries, artists and operators, editors and producers, that can culminate in an awesome cinematic experience.
