Geez. I've never seen so much QQ over something pretty worthless. Sure, people want it, but it doesn't really affect gameplay, and sure, they should've left it in...but what Blizzard can learn from the Ghost Wolf debacle is that the amount of complaining is usually extremely disproportionate to the importance of the situation.

It's a video game. What particular bunch of pixels is more important? In a few months or so all our gear will be gone, but hunters could have had this pet forever.

Anyone ever think that the real reason may be that they devs never intended for crowds of lvl 70's to constantly run thru Dustwallow Marsh killing the shamans that the lower levels need to kill for their qwests.There was apparently enough QQ by the low levels that they were being unintentionally "griefed" because someone over powered for that area was killing all the NPC mobs and on PvP servers all the opposing faction that ventured near while they were trying to get their ghost wolf.It's sad that QQing can cause so much "grief".

I can ultimately also see how this would "de-value" the "lore" a little, to have spiritual guides reduced to nothing but hunter pets.

Every time I see a comment that says "Whats the big deal, its just a different graphic", I see someone who has had the issues at hand go *whoooosh* right over their head.What the ghost wolf is, is an concept. Its simply an ambassador, or mascot to a bigger picture.1. Blizzard nerfs fun. Blizzard needs to stop feeling so threatened by unintended occurrences. Unintentional Fun, is ok if its not hurting anything, why is FUN always nerfed? The only reasons people can think of is: a. Developer "vanity" b. Game mechanics we don't know about.Which leads to:2. Blizzard needs better communication. Cryptic answers, and wishy-washy attitudes have no place in the real buisness world, why does blizzard deserve special treatment because they're a "game" company? People feel lied to and betrayed. Thats bad customer service, and nothing new from Blizzard. Today its the ghostwolf, but tomorrow it could be directed at your class, or your vanity pets, or your nogginfogger... oh wait...
