Bye, Bye Beta Pets.

Some days I don’t mind not being in the beta. Here’s a quote from Zarhym.

During the standard beta realm maintenance on Thursday morning, we will be wiping all pet data for hunters and warlocks to fix a data corruption issue. Hunters will need to tame new pets as a result of this change, while warlocks should simply notice that their pets’ names have changed.

There’s going to be a lot of unhappy hunters come Thursday. I know Frostheim has been diligently taming hordes of ferocity pets in anticipation of testing the pet design.


  1. Yeah, that's crazy. One other thing i was wondering regarding the beta. Once someone like Frosthiem level's to 85 in beta i guess it means he has to do it all over again when cataclysm comes out. That, to me is nuts.

  2. @starl – Yeah beta is not tied to live in anyway so all progress, items, etc. you get from beta will not carry over to live.

  3. Losing pets is the least of my concern from the Thursday changes; having to redownload and reinstall the entire game again is the part that sucks the most for me. I live in rural Australia with access to only basic DSL speeds. To reinstall the 15.6GB of game files will take just over 100hrs.

    After the 50 or so hrs of downloading and installing the original BETA client I just don't feel like doing it all over again.
