Reading the latest info about WOTLK on wowinsider, it looks hunters and their pets will see quite a few changes. The talent trees will be different, as in that the Beastmaster now really will be a ‘beastmaster‘ who’s pet will have extra abilities etc.
And different pets will have different abilities based on their ‘pet familiy‘. Not sure how I feel about that, my hunter has two nice lvl 70 pets, and I certainly don’t feel much like leveling another one up. I hope Northend will have a few new nice pets, and that we will get an extra slot for one of the new pets, so I don’t have to abandon one !

Yesterday it was the USA’s turn, now Europe will get patch 2.4.3. The biggest change is ofcourse the mount, now at lvl 30. I have no more characters in that range so it won’t benefit me. Nor do I plan to ever start a new one again to be honest. Been through that several times now… But I guess it’s a small incentive to level up an extra character. Already the forum whines of people that want their lvl 40 mount money back (the cost has been reduced to 35g) :).
