If you’re a raiding hunter then when patch 3.1 comes out you’re going to want to get yourself a wolf. Euripides over at OutDPS has a nice explanation of why wolves will be the DPS companion for Ulduar.
I myself alluded to this earlier week (see We Had Permission). At any rate if you don’t have a wolf, now is a good time to tame one and get him leveled up before the patch hits.
The good new is that wolves are one of the few high-level pets you can find in the game. You can find wolves ranging in level from 77 – 80 (yes 80!)
You can head over to Petopia to view a full list of wolves from level 74 -80. And remember once you start looking at pets below level 76 it doesn’t matter what level they start at, because they will become level 75 once you tame them.
