Ok for the hunter who said he doesn't even use his pet: Use it. It's what's called "free dps" meaning: even if you're not spec'd BM your pet is still adding to a % of your dps. So use it or lose it. If you're fighting a boss with a lot of AOE, yeah sure keep it to your side, but if he can hit something without dying then it is worth it. Just a comment, not meant to be mean or anything. Secondly, I posted a message on the forums yesterday about this. I got a lot of "lulz" and people against the idea. Yes, the spammable focus dump dps abilities are all a little different, but none of them are really spectacular. Adding some new and useful pet abilities would be good. Pets used to retain their abilities when tamed (if I heard that right) until they got nerfed and were all given lame counterparts. Warlock pets also buff their owner alot more than hunter pets do. Granted the BM tree enhances pets, but I still see clothies living through what my pet can do, but getting creamed by felguards. Does that seem right? Why not give raptors cleave, or owls a silence, bats a mini psychic scream, cats a rend abilitiy? It would make choosing a pet more interesting and add to hunter diversity.

Felguard is a 41 pt talent so it is only a fair comparison to a BM hunter's pet, since they've specced for it. You can't whine if you're MM and your pet isn't Felguard-caliber.
