Personally, I like having to manage pet happiness, but then I come from the old school where we walked to school uphill...both ways...in the snow...barefoot. I chose this pet, tamed him and "trained" him. I should also feed him and keep him happy. I'm not a warlock that pulls my pet out of another plane of existence. I'm a hunter and, therefore, if I have to feed my pet to make him happy, then I had better have a stack of something he likes. It's part of what makes a hunter a hunter. What I'd like to see is the kind of buffs on people food apply to pets. If I feed my pet Skewered Eel, the agility bonus would apply. If I feed it Severed Sagefish Head, then it gains intellect, although that's probably not a stat my pets need. I'd also like to see pets benefit from the feasts. There probably would be too much coding to implement something like this, but I think it would add another dimension to the hunter's repertoire.

We already used to have pet food with buffs, though it all just gave STR+STA buff. Then it was removed in 4.0.3

Right, it was a simple buff. I'm asking for a more complex buff. I'd like to see agility food, strength, dodge buffs apply to pets as they apply to people. It does seem to come down to not wanting people to have to "trouble" with remembering to feed a pet. I'm not a warlock, I'm a hunter.

Thing is, all class management would need to count on those buffs, and either people who have them would get extra benefits, or people who don't will suffer and whine "why do we have to bring yet another food to top our dps"

Whine. Bingo. It's always an option. Maybe you don't want agility on this pet. Maybe you want dodge, instead. I just think it comes down to not wanting to learn to play, not wanting to have options. This situation try this. This situation try that. It seems facerolling is what's wanted. That's not taking your talents and using them. Then again...I'm old. I want those options. I want to have to remember or my pet will run away. Do pets even run away anymore?
