I was so hoping that each of the other 2 specs(fire, arcane) would get their own version of an elemental pet sort of like a summon familiar. I mean familiar and mages go together like peanut butter and jelly!

i think giving mages 'familiars' would be treading a little too far into warlock territory. same armor, same playstlye (ish), and pets? no way. also it is my contention that there are already too many classes with pets, either permanent or cd based: dks, hunters, locks, frost mage, shadow priest, enhance shaman. it's too much i tells ya!

@zdave: i'm perfectly fine with shadow priests having their little shadow fiend. it's basically just an interesting way to get them mana regen without giving them, say, their own evocation or innervate. it's just designed to be a little different, and if it happens to be in the form of a pet for like 15 seconds out of every 3 mintues, it doesn't really have any impact on the number of pet classes out there.

nah, scrap it. it's weak. obviously i'm fine with shadowfiends, i was just exampling (??) the number of pets out there. i always hear people asking for pets in their class when a class just like theirs (but with a pet) already exists. i.e. mages, warriors, and priests (asking for a holy pet of some sort), see: dks, locks, and...locks.

@ Zdaveyou forgot Treants for druids.Currently 7 classes can summon a pet, in cata Paladins are getting that guardian thing at 85 leaving just the poor Rogue and Warriors without any combat pet options at all.You'll be coming across them stabbing stuff in the forests quietly singing to themselves "All by myself, don't wanna be *sniff*"
