My mains are Mage and Warlock, and honestly I am not happy about mages having permapets. Hunters and Warlocks were the only two pet classes, but then DK came along.. plate wearers with unholy magic similar to what many wished warlocks were and they have a pet too. Now mages? I liked the how I could play very differently between my busty mage and my dotting affliction warlock that utilized his pets.. now the two classes grow even closer to each other as destro is the warlocks main raiding spec and now mages with pets. I thought I remembered reading that blizzard was rather happy with us mages, and wanted our darker cousins to be further apart but it doesn't seem thats their plan at all. /confused

No need to be confused.1/3 mage specs (might) have a pet, and1/3 DK specs have a pet.That's one specific pet. DKs pet has some utility while it doesn't look like mages' will. Obviously both of those are a far cry from the pets that warlocks bring to the table. While I'd like to see warlocks have more use from their pets (and I wish Blizzard didn't try to make it 1 spec = 1 pet), I don't feel that DKs and mages will infringe on warlock/hunter pet territory.When Blizzard suggested they want warlocks to be different from mages, they weren't necessarily talking about pets. They were, however, talking about things like making curses more central to warlock gameplay and making shards a unique feature rather than a "balance check." That's happening in Cataclysm.That said, yeah, a permanent elemental might not be the most elegant solution but if I can raid as frost, I'm gonna take it.
